    Hi friends,
    lately I've been seeing a lot of threads about how annoying it can be that lens glare can ruin a photo like this one ..

    OP7Pro

    And turn it into something like this...

    Here are some examples shot with the OP7Pro, OP3T and an old Huawei Y6 (2015)...
    I set up the scene and used a tripod to get the same framing for every shot...
    First of each set is the lens cleaned with a microfiber cloth, second touched a couple of times with a finger and the third is moist...

    Huawei Y6 (2015)

    The effect is present on whichever camera...
    So yeah, I'm totally with you, lens glare like that can ruin a picture...!
    But the simple solution is to clean the lens...
    So always have a microfiber cloth or a lens pen with you .. ;)
    And please don't use any cleaning fluids that contain alcohol that could corrode the coating of the lenses... ( Thanks @hennes)

    Cheers...
    Yours Bouncer71

    only one remark ;)...
    ... sometimes I'm 'breathing' against the frontlens of slr/dslr to get a sort of 'mystery Nebula mood' :D

    but with the tiny lenses of smartphone cameras ;)
