    Hi, not sure if I can remove it. Or should. I can feel with my fingernails that this could be a plastic film.

    Does the surface underneath have some kind of "grip" or just glass.?

    There's a plastic film. I haven't tried to take it off yet. May do it one of these days. My plastic has chip marks on it.

    Keep it on. It keeps that glass back from shattering all over the place, if broken.

    Using the leather style shell nearly always but I'm so excited when going naked with my z play to pull it off

    Never understood why many of my friends keep those plastic on even on TV's, phones, fridges etc.

    That's the first thing I remove when buying a product.

    It does make sense to protect against shattering but the longer you have it on the more ugly it looks.

    Mine (plastic film) starting to show some wear, especially from JBL Mod, I guess.

    My Z Play Droid is in a CoverON case, so I don't notice it.

    i change different style shells and mods only, hate cases :P

    i just found out when going "naked" more often with my z play.

    I will remove the plastic when it shows more wear.

    Dropped my z play again on concrete floor about 1.5 meters, today, again.

    Nothing happend, many times just small dents on edges which one can barely see. Seems like solid build.

    Display same new, you won't need any display cover or tempered glass or whatever it's called.

    I'm not really planning on using any of the Mods, so I like having the case.

    Me either. I tried picking at the edges with no luck. Not sure what to think.

    Got mine to come off. Left really sticky residue behind so I threw a dbrand skin over it. Didn't help at all with the style mod moving so I'm upset lol however it was pretty dinged up and looking bad.

    It takes some time to peel it off but worth it if you use mods! After removing it and the residue which is like 1mm thick residue, so 2mm space used for crap screen protector !!?!? (Use GooGone to remove) once I cleaned it the glass is so much better and best part all mods fits like a glove no wiggle anymore! The leather shell feels like part of the phone! There is a posting on XDA for more details on removing.

    I still haven't removed the glue lol I just stuck the skin over it and it made the mods stick even worse. May fix it the next couple days and report back.

    Yeah the glue residue is like as thick as a skin no lie! I was amazed by how much residue it left. Also all my mods for tightly now, which was worth the clean up! Let me know.

    Holy crap that was tough! Well worth it, like you said the mods stick way better than before. Definitely glad I did it.
