    I received my S6 last night and besides a hard time getting it activated (Sprint was not on the ball last night but got it activated after 2 hours on the phone with them) I am very happy with it so far.
    I noticed on the camera lens, I have a few bubble like there is a protective sticker or piece of plastic over it. Is this something that is supposed to be removed and if so, how?
    If not, I wonder if I need to take it to a Sprint store to see about those bubbles as they are going to cause issues with pictures.
    thank you!

    There is a film on the glass part around the actual lens of my phone. It looks like a protective sticker, but I can't take it off. However, where the lens is, there is no sticker, looking closely shows there is a cut out for the lens. It hasn't affected my pictures and it shouldn't sense the lens isn't being covered.

    Thank you. I looked closely after reading your post and I see that the lens isn't covered now too. Hopefully an bubbles in the sticker shouldn't affect the photos then.
    Thank you!

    Does anyone know if leaving the sticker on negatively affects camera performance if there is no bubble over the lens? I kind of like having the extra bit of protection since I'm running my device naked, without a case.

    Doesn't matter, it won't mess up your pictures.

    I believe I saw an unboxing video about it. The guy took off the film during the unboxing.

    Ditto. There's another film on top of the heart rate monitor. I peeled that off as well.

    Wow, I don't even know how you saw that. I got both films off my phone, but I did have to ask a woman at work to do it for me. Her fingernails were better at removing them.

    them.
    I didn't! Just assumed because it's a Samsung phone. When I used to work at VZW I remember taking off unnecessary plastic all around their phones. The Galaxy S3 was the worst. I think there was at least 7 clear strips on that phone.

    Yeah I took both off to, but now i'm not sure if one is on the fingerprint sensor. When I use my nail I can feel a raised bit that feels like another sticker :/

    There is. Tougher to see than the one on the camera lens. To peel it off, I recommend starting at the bottom-right corner and peeling diagonally up towards the top-left corner.

    Just put clear tape above both the lens and fingerprint sensor, rub them a little over the film and then peel them off, it will get the film easily, if not, just try it again.

    I leave mine on as long as possible. It might protect my camera lens from a scratch.

    You are a genius.
    First, I stopped thinking the lens were covered with a cheap plastic.
    Second, I was able to remove both plastics with your exact method.
    Took me about 15 secondos.

    Thanx
