    Is there a screen protector that is good quality and that I can apply and then remove and then reapply with no problem?

    Look on eBay they are everywhere. At a couple of dollars a piece even though they can be reapplied, you probably have trouble keeping the dust out. Most of them attach without adhesive and use electrostatic type adhesion. Search for "S4 Screen Protector" and you will spend hours going through them!

    Most of the good quality ones are 'good' because they have good adhesion, and are strong enough to prevent scratches. When you take it off, you will lose adhesion, so it is likely not going to be 'as good as new' anymore.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to remove/reapply a screen protector? There are cases out there that have a built in screen protector (like otterbox defender)

    I just keep one for 3-6 months then replace it when it looks too tatty. In fact I have one on my tablet but on the S4 it has Gorilla Glass 3 - so you will be struggling to to scratch it. If you have a stylus like the Galaxy Note more like to see wear, but using your figure not likely.

    I know this because my last phone was the Galaxy S2 which has Gorilla Glass (1.0?) and it still looks brand new after 2 years of constant use. Just clean it with knitted cotton (t-shirt material) and a bit of fog. S4 is even hard to get figure prints on compared to the original gorilla glass.

    In any case each to their own....

    I doubt you really need them on the S4 but I got a matt one which is great .. Keeps fingerprints off and minimizes mirror effects (search Amazon for matte magic shield). To reduce dust apply them in a steamy room after a hot shower or bath.

    I have the Sedio Obex case for my S4 which is waterproof and has the built in screen protector. But due to the case being so thick and bulky I only want to use the case when I might need it. So I want a screen protector that when I decide to use the Obex I can take the protector off and reapply it later.
