Mobile Case or Cover

Who doesn’t use mobile covers? I use mobile covers, and I am sure you’re probably not using mobile covers too. Mobile covers are the protectors for our smartphones. They protect our smartphone screens and body.

How can smartphone covers cause the Camera Blur? In many cases, if you have a smartphone case, then this might be the problem because, in most mobile cases, there is a bump over the camera. Sometimes it covers the camera (Even a little bit or Flashlight filled in cover), OR the case might not be properly manufactured, or you can say it’s a defective piece.
