    If it’s good enough for Ben Hur it’s good enough for me.

    Share it or sell it to Apple please. Their phones have a crater for a camera bump and it’s super ugly.

    • Jackson J

      I think you meant the opposite of a crater.

    • southerndinner

      Oh boy. You’d be right

    • tno2007

      I think you must have never seen a recent apple phone right? Cos then iPhone has a camera bump

  • Victor Creed

    Increase thickness + add more battery = no camera bump. Sadly OEM’s are clueless to this simple solution.

  • John Lofwire

    smaller pixel = lower overall quality if same technology used.

    so instead as Victor said make the phone a bit thicker and use that extra space for more battery life as well.
    8 mm thick phone are fine.

    The “bump” is a non issue since most people put a case on their phones, anyway.

    • Canadiana Jones

      I’m still baffled how no manufacturers understand this?

    • Monster Munster

      Iv never used a case to cover any of my Nexus phone’s or iPhones back in the day. Maybe I’m in the minority but they always feel/look dirty, add bulk and ruin the look of my phone, hell and I work in construction.

    • Joël van Daalen

      Another one here! I hate them, don’t use a screenprotector either. I do like dbrand skins for the added grip though.

  • h2oflyer

    This is a non issue… Sony Xperias didn’t have camera bumbs, neither does my Huawei P10+.

  • KiwiBri

    Or just make the phone slightly thicker.. They are thin enough

  • saltorio

    Neither the Google Pixel or Pixel 2 have a camera bump, and they have some of the best smartphone cameras on the market.

    • Brad Fortin

      The Pixel 2 has a camera bump.

    Samsung and Apple are the two major manufacturers remaining to get rid of the camera bump. My LG G6 doesn’t have any bump, nor will the upcoming V30.
