    Copied this from another forum. I just removed that factory installed screen protector and WOW did it improve the screen response to touch! I noticed that sometimes a touch or a swipe wouldn't register but not anymore! Even the screen appears to have more contrast. If you take it off, you'll see that it isn't just a thin protector either...it's pretty thick which would explain why the screen looks and performs better with it off. I just used my nail to dig into the corner and peel off that sticker to reveal the beautiful Gorilla Glass underneath!

    I would if I had my cam. There really isn't much to post though...it doesn't look that much different in a pic, but you will see and feel the difference once you remove it and have a look at it for yourself.

    So if you get a screen protector, do you take second layer one off?

    I tried to rip off that second screen protector but all I see is my nail coming off. Are you sure there is a second screen protector? I'm not sure how gorilla glass feels like..

    EDIT: Mine came off. The guitar pick worked!

    Amazing, I am so lucky to stumble upon your post, I bought this phone 6 months ago and within 2 days had a huge scratch right horizontally across the middle. I had been just sick about it. Come to find out it was just another layer of protection. Thanks so much. I wonder how many people put a screen protector on thinking its the only one?

    I think a few people have... I took mine off within a couple days and replaced it with a zagg invisible shield though... Also some people don't have any problems so they don't really care...

    Are you guys trolling? I'm so tempted to try this. I heard that the second layer is to protect from screen radiation.

    I think mine is still on my Triumph. I took off the first layer and put on an InvisibleShield. I don't know how much of a difference removal of the second protector will do, but I'm keeping it on since reapplying InvisibleShield is a pain.

    Wow. Now I feel stupid. I always wondered why the touch response was so flakey after using a screen protector. I guess having two of them on was what did it. Thanks for reposting this!
