Default Did you take off your stock screen protector?

I took the factory screen protector off of my first triumph that I ended up sending back. I'm debating taking it off of this one though. The screen seemed more sensitive too touch that's both good and bad. It was very thick when I took it off and the one I replaced it with was a lot thinner but really hard to get the bubbles out. So has anyone else taken theirs off and are you glad you did?

Well I kept getting tiny particles stuck under it caused bubbles... What did you use to clean before applying? I'm probably going to take the stock off again since it was more responsive like an ipod touch

i used a cleaner called "invisible glass" (windex will work too) and after i wiped it clean i used a dry cloth to get any dust off that may have been attracted during wiping off the screen with a paper towel. then i applied it like in the video. i got a couple bubbles, but i was able to get them out by using my fingernail. (the little plastic card they give you is too flimsy LOL )

Never saw the point of remover a screen protector to install another screen protector.

Still have th stock one on and responsiveness was never the problem. I did had occasional unresponsive touches but flashing CM7 cured that. I think any effect to the touchscreen you see from changing a screensaver is in your head, capacitive is capacitive.

I am keeping mine on, the phone has insurance that covers alot, so once Everything is worked out, and I've got that perfect phone even then I will keep it on, gorilla glass or not, it hurts nothing to me, back up

yes even though it is a capacitive touchscreen, it can still be affected by layers of stuff blocking contact between your finger and the screen... the zagg and amzer screen protectors are just as durable, but are thinner. resulting in a more responsive touchscreen. the stock screen protector is extreamly thick!

I took mine off over a month ago and replaced it with one a I got with a case from off of Ebay. I just took that one off to see if I notice any difference. I called virgin mobile today to have a replacement sent to me. But they are out of stock and IM on a waiting list. So I don't care if the phone gets keyed.

I kept mine on until I was able to get to Best Buy and get an Invisible Shield! I got that and also a soft rubber case. I highly recommend the Invisible Shield. These things are BEASTS when it comes to protecting the screen from scratches lol. It also didn't effect the sensitivity of the screen, either. They are kind of expensive (I think I paid $21 but they installed it free, usually $8) but it beats the heck out of getting scratches on your screen!

Hope this helps!

Yes, I did get rid of my stock screen protector. Like others said, it is really thick, and the clarity and responsiveness have definitely gone up a notch without it.

P.S. Please thank every post I make, thanks

yes they are cool only thing bad is they usually have more glare. I'm glad others are with me on the fact the triumph is more responsive with the stock screen protector off... Not just in my head

I had no clue there was a stock one on. I brought one and put it on and it's like it has a hard time picking up my touch. This its probably why. I hate that I paid good money fit this, but its coming off.

This protector is insanely thick too. I didn't realize that before.

Just want to say mine has pretty good response with stock protector on (I can see it with an app like Multitouch Vis Test app it's tracking well). Sometimes it doesn't register my touch, but that seems like a software problem. When it does register it's almost TOO sensitive, like I have to lightly touch it in order to not have it register as a swipe if I'm just trying to press a small button. My phone was built 8/11.

I take off screen protector, have phone for 2 weeks, treat it same, smash... I have had the perfect phone for ~2 months and have treated it the same, and it hasn't shattered. i do wonder... does it keep the glass together if it shatters? maybe shock absorption? I was wondering, because I dropped it face down in a gravel driveway (slipped out of my hand while I was loading a car) and there was a dent... previous phone, same driveway: "craaack" and no screen protector. I don't really know though... it is a cheap huwaei phone...

Keep the stock screen protector. On my original triumph, I removed it and installed an invisibleshield. The stock screen protector feels better, is more responsive, and protects better than the invisibleshield. The invisibleshield wears down every few months (nicks, gouges, scratches), and it costs $$$, and feels a bit...weird (rubbery). The stock screen protector is like glass, and in my current triumph resists all scratches/nicks.

I've had one where I took the screen protector off and the one I'm using now where I decided to just keep it on. I always have trouble putting those shields on it so I figured I'd use the stock one until it got scratched or is not useable anymore.

The one that had the screen protector off did feel a little more responsive but not to the point where I felt I had to have it off. I guess it's really user orientated and if it's not bothering you then I'd just leave it on.

My theory is this: if they get a phone returned they don't have to refurbish the screen, just apply a new screen protector.... think about it that way and it makes sense, kind of.

especially seeing as the triumph has to be manufactured under a budget. the less parts to replace on refurbished phones the better. makes perfect sense
