    its a piece of plastic with a hole in the center... well that's how it was on mine. Took me about 5 min to figure out how to get it off, had to have the back off the S4 to do it.

    yeah it was a pain in the *** to remove.
    why they didn't put a little pull tab on it is beyond me.

    Oh man, thanks for posting this. I started to see some dirt and lint beginning to accumulate right around the lens. I was wondering what the problem was. I'm removing the film now. Thanks!

    I tried to take it off when I noticed it the day I got the phone. After not being able to I just figured it was supposed to stay there. Is it intended to be removed?

    *How did you guys get it off?

    I took some pictures, and the photos seem fine with the plastic on, so are we supposed to take the plastic off. Will it give you better photos? And does the manual mention anything if we should keep it on or off. If it protects the lens and does not make much difference on the photos, then I will keep it on.

    It doesn't cover the lens, so it won't impact the quality of the pictures in any way.
