    Well my case doesn't get here till next week, and looking at my camera lens saw two small scratches already, great.... Isn't the camera lens suppose to be sapphire crystal and able to withstand phone being placed down or being in pocket?

    Depends on what your definition of sapphire is

    That above video is misleading as it's not a scratch, it's a pressure break. See this from iMore instead.

    Yes, the iPhone 7 lenses really are sapphire | iMore

    Just a question. Does it matter if it's a scratch or break? It's not something that can be cleaned away. I actually don't have a problem with the video as it didn't stop me from getting a 7+ or make me worry about getting a case.
    Anyway just sayin...

    It does matter.. scratch is something one would worry about for day-2-day use. The break happens when you take a screwdriver or larger item and start pushing into the camera lens with your body weight. Like saying.. look my phone has a bend in it... damn iPhone.. after you run it over with a car. Not typical or expected use.

    Ah, so the theory is the OP must have applied some type of pressure to the lens to cause it to break. I can live with that. Thanks
