Is there a thin layer of plastic to protect the front and rear cameras just like the apple logo? Sorry to ask but I can't really tell in the pictures and none of the reviews speak to it.
No protection for the cameras. If there was a plastic layer like there is over the screen or the Apple logo, then it would possibly interfere with picture clarity, focusing ability and possibly render the microphone useless. I think this case is more for shock & scratch protection and water resistance. I have used it with wet hands and in the rain and feel confident that my device was protected. But due to that fact that there is also openings for the speaker and also charging and headphone ports, it is not water-tight.
