    So I figured out what was wrong with my camera it wasn't focusing right so I looked at it and a piece of lint is under the lens! How could I get this piece of lint out of my lens?

    Have you tried using compressed air to blow it out?

    The question is how did it get in there? Sounds like an integrity issue. Maybe someone else has had this happen.

    Get a vacuum cleaner and try that. This trick also works on fairly big camera lens also :) I have a handheld digital camera, and had dust on the inside, and was ruining my pics. Someone told me about this trick and I'll be damn if it didn't take care of the dust.

    Had my charger not charge and my head phone jack not work due to lint...and was crammed in there too. Never heard of it happening to the camera...wow.

    Ok I'll try all theses methods. I don't know how it got under the lens just tried taking a simple picture and it wouldn't focus on anything that's like 3 feet away from me.

    Droid Turbo, and Nexus 6!
    Also, while vacuuming, tap LIGHTLY with something like a hard plastic spoon on the phone where the lens is and that will help to let the dust detach. This is the way newer digital cameras remove dust from the sensor - by vibrating it at a high frequency and the dust simply falls to the bottom via gravity.

    This ought to get the job done. Bigger hammers are always better.

    Tried this and the dust seems to be gone but it still not focusing right. So do you think its a camera hardware problem or just the camera app issue?

    Easiest way to tell is download another camera app and try it. I'm afraid it might be hardware.

    Be sure you have a lot of light and the camera is steady for your test. Try it with both apps and compare.
