I am having the same issue with A71. I believe that this will be the case with any such protector. I believe the reason is because the flash diffuses the light from the edges of the "Hole" in the clear screen protector.

I was also going to try to color that part of the lens opening with black magic marker/thin black paint, just to see if that makes a difference.
