The screws circled in red are torx screws, the screws circled in blue are Phillips screws and the screws circled in white are the silver screws. Make sure the different screws go back in the right slots. Now remove the camera cover by levering it out from the point shown. To do so, slide something very thin inbetween the black part and the metal part. Be careful as you do not want to mark your phone.
