    Had my s6 for about a month now and just noticed the sticker on my camera on the back. The plastic was not interfering with pictures, I just noticed it bc it has bubbled up. Smh.

    I was going to leave mines on, but it's not protecting anything because there's a cut circle in the camera.

    The cellophane "protector" on the actual camera lens does nothing to disrupt or degrade the quality of the camera, as there is a cut-out for the camera lens; however, the cellophane protector over the flash and heart rate sensor will slightly change image quality when using the flash due to how it will affect the quality of the light the LED flash puts out.

    I removed both of those "protectors" right when I got the phone, but it wasn't easy. I had to use a toothpick to get them started, then was able to use tweezers to grab a corner of each and peel them off.

    Just ran my finger nail around the borders of each but the LED sticker was a doozie to remove.

    I removed the protector from my camera a week ago, but I didn't notice the one on my flash until now. Thanks to Wiggum I took a closer look with a magnifying glass. It didn't want to come off easy but I finally got it. So yeah...a duh moment for me to. Thanks for bringing it up Leslie.

    I just saw the one on the flash/LED area. If the cover wasn't bubbled up, I would have never seen them!

    I didn't either. When I first got one last month, someone pointed it out to me as well.

    Yeah but the thing is I was talking to my boyfriend the other day about problems his cousin was having with the s6 and I was like 'disable smart switch, disable calls over WiFi, enable advanced call settings' and I was like 'ok I know too much about this phone already lol'

    lol, that's happened to me before. I didn't even notice the difference after I removed it, although I keep my phone pretty clean (despite my son dropping my beloved Nexus 4 down the stairs yesterday and shattering it) so it didn't get dirty.

    I was using my sister's S6 last weekend and we sent some pictures to our family and friends. Just used Snapseed for some minor editing.

    Her friend, who's a recreational photographer, noted how nice the pics came out, and didn't believe they were taken with a phone. He texted me last night that he traded in his iPhone and got the S6 edge and loves it.

    * he doesn't even call it an S6 (calls it an Android, lol)

    ** the Nexus will be temporarily replaced with an iPhone 5 ... talk about a monster downgrade. I'll buy the Moto X or Note 5 in a few months.

    *** my son wasn't punished, accidents happen!

    Nice . I sold my 6+ so I could switch to the S6 without coming out of pocket.
