    Okay, that dust is not in the lens, the lens is the inside the circle next to the dust. This does not affect the IP67 rating as the camera module is made separate like all the other parts inside the phone before they are all out together. You will not see any issues with your photos.

    Water and dust resistant what apple claims it dust is in my lens that killed the dust resistant why lie.
    How did you manage to notice anything to begin with? Do you take a magnifying glass and inspect your devices? I've had my 6s Plus almost 2½ years, and not once have I looked closely at the lens. I clean it regularly, but pay no other attention. My photos look ok. So do yours. Why make yourself sick over nothing? You'll never be able to enjoy your phone.

    I have run this issue about dust in the lens with several folks I know who own the iPhone X and this is the first time myself or the iPhone X owners I know have heard of this issue.

    My camera has produced excellent images since day one. I haven’t heard of anyone I know having to exchange their iPhone X for any reason.
    As I’ve mentioned earlier in this thread, this is a known problem. I have 2 X’s and both has dust in the lenses. Other threads exist on imore about this. This is no secret. Just the OP has gotten a little carried away on this.

    That it won’t break your phone. In phones that are not dirt/dust resistant dirt and dust can break the device and keep it from functioning properly. Apple didn’t say the iPhone was dust proof they say it is dust resistant. In other words, dust will not damage the device. Perhaps that’s just my unique take on it.

    P.S. I’m quite sure there is a piece of dust in my charging port but I don’t see any dust under the glass covering my screen. Until I see it under my screen or a lot of it under my camera lens why waste the energy? Surely you have more important things to concern yourself about than a spec of dust?
    Not even sure if the microfiber cloth use cause it and no it doesn’t show in my photos.

    Maybe this is normal for iPhone X then I hope apple don’t add another lens that will make me nuts.

    Yet you said they replaced it at a different store because the first store wouldnt replace it for dust under the lens.

    I cant believe you created another thread on this.

    If no update is made in my post that means I didn’t swap it out and left it as is

    I won’t swap it when next iPhone gets announced I will just return this one.

    How will I know in the future if dust is in my photos and it’s in my lens but I don’t want I swap again to find other issues.
    If you're no good at detecting it, then how do you know its there? Is it affecting your pics? It doesn't seem like it from the ones you posted. I looked at some of the threads you started. Always some issue with your various devices. There is no perfect device as soon as you open the box and power up, anything can happen. I bet you put your phone in your pocket. Lint and dust and various particles live there. Unless you live and use your devices in a "clean room" this can happen, let it go. I can only imaging the dread at the  store when they see you coming.

    Just for kicks and giggles I went through your thread history. You've had dust issues in every iPhone since the 6S. At some point, you have to wonder how big of an issue this really is. I honestly am surprised you continue to purchase iPhones. No offense, but at some point you've got to wonder if all of this is really worth it.

    While that is hard to argue you can make Android as easy or as complex as you want it to be, really...and there are endless hardware choices. Maybe it’s time?

    Those are old models with old Android. It’s a new world now with Nugat, Oreo, and hardware from Google, Samsung, LG, Sony, Moto, Huawei and others. You could try a low-to-mid range Android device or stick with Apple and embrace a dust particle here or there.
