iPhone X Camera Has Black Spot

Problem: My iPhone X is having this issue where I turn the camera on and I record a video in a lightly lit room and I pointed it at my white wall and I could see a black spot in the center, I tried cleaning it with a soft cloth and nope still there, this is one of the issues I had that is fairly new, the other one is related to sound where I hear a muffle or distortion when i’m on speakerphone on a phone call, this happens in facetime as well for some odd reason I am on my 3rd iPhone X since the apple store replaced it twice as a courtesy but now I am thinking about returning it and just switching to the Galaxy S9+ this is frustrating and a rushed phone design on apple’s part
