The lense cover is under the clear casing of the K850 which means that it doesn't get dust in it.
When you press the dedicated camera activation button, the cover automatically opens and (depending on the colour of your phone) you either get a flash of blue or green light around the lens for added effect (which looks pretty cool).
Check out the demo on the SE sight if you want to see it.

there the BEST Phones
blows the n95 8gb straight out the water, ive compared a photo set at the highest resolution taken on my k850 n compared it to 1 taken on my mates n95 8gb taken at the highest resolution n when both viewed on a computer/laptop the k850 photo wins by quite a margin, my mate even agreed , he's dissapointed as he is a photography fanatic and stuck with his n95 8gb as he is commited to a contract n can't change as he as had it for 3 weeks, gr8 shame!
i read some bizarre msgs on these forums and ive just read the most bizarre 1 of all, TO: the idot that say the nokia N95,N95 8GB has optical zoom, it DOES not i stress DOES not have opitcal zoom read the specs for the phones an you will see for yourself, my mate has a n95 8gb an i know for sure it hasnt got optical zoom, also only plus point about n95 8gb is its improved battery n impressive 16million display n 8gb hardrive, camera wise the k850
Actually the N73 doesn't have any optical zoom althought it is equipped with Carl Zeiss lens. But still, both the Nokia N95 and N93 is equipped with optical zooming functionality. It's actually a pity that there is no optical zoom in the K850. As stated, the K850 is a Cybershot phone. That means that photo shooting comes first. Anyway, althought there's no optical zoom, it's still a great phone overall, focusing on it's features & functionalities.
Actually Nokia phones does have optical zoom. And the phone models that have optical zoom are exactly what Zubair had mentioned earlier.
I see what you're saying. But ppl as a whole dont want or need a smartphone OS in a media phone. Its slow, it crashes , it freezes. The k850 is a media phone. The a200 platform isnt as refined as it needs to be, i know. For most ppl out the k850 is a "all-in-one" device. I dont need to open documents on my phone. I have a computer. I would like it to have vga video though. Outside of that it is missing nothing for me.
You are grossly misinformed. Not a single Nokia has optical zoom. Most have 20x Digital zoom. Only phone that has optical and is available to the world is the samsung g800. Ant it is only 3x. Any digital zoom goes blurry at its max. Even on stand-alone digital cameras it goes blurry when zoomed past optical and into the digital range.
Its a photo-shopped mock up by a user. There are a million of them out there. In fact there are better ones than this. http://www.esato.com/board/viewtopic.php?topic=158095
Then there are phones that are as good as the concepts. We'll just never see them.

Nokia N93 and N95 and N73 have optical zoom and when u are giving 5 megapixels then u should give optical zoom and i tried taking picture at 4X zoom and when i saw the result, nothing was clear... Again i will say, failure and wastage of 5 MP camera and also poor sound. Check BenqSiemens S88, compare the sound and camera although it has 2 MP camera but much better and sound is awesome.
the other important point is , WALKMAN , it does not inclode the WALKMAN SYS.and the front camera too..!
It's a niice phone..the most important point is the battery's life..and the resolution..but, is there anything new about the fonts?
this phone realy perfict , no problems , nice cam with syper shot 5 Mega pixl , easy work with menu , 3 tuch botons , nice style & face .
can someone help me, i'm choosing a new phone and the two i've got down to is the sony Ericsson K850, and the Samsung G600, which phone is better and why...
