    I just opened the Bodyguardz replacement screen they sent. I don't see a form/guide. What is included is the protector in a clear protective sleeve, a little suction cup, a microfiber cloth, a squeegee card, a couple of dust removal stickers.
    The instructions are minimal as follows:
    1) Attach the suction cup to the protector
    2) Holding on to the suction cup, peel off the back liner, then align the protector over your device and gently lay it down
    3) Press and slide your finger along the center of the protector, removing the suction cup as you do.
    4) Use the provided squeegee card and/or microfiber cloth to push any bubbles to the edges. Any remaining bubbles will work themselves out
    within 24-48 hours.
    I may give it another try myself when I'm in the mood and feel lucky.
    Good luck!

    I contacted Samsung about the scratches on my phone and was informed the only way to change the top layer is to replace the entire screen for $270. The scratches aren't noticeable with the the display on, but it's pretty bad that one of their selling points is a lie.

    Definitely not as good a design as the Moto droid turbo 2 or Moto Z Force apparently. Sounds like the tough screen needs a screen protector.

    According to Samsungs's website the top layer is replaceable. They sell a kit:

    Galaxy S7 active Screen Protector Replacement Kit

    Looks like from the instructions that it just peels off from the small gap at the top of the screen. It's just a factory installed polycarbonate screen protector

    i believe those instructions are for the removal and replacement of their branded screen protector, and NOT the 'out-of-box' polycarbonate screen, which would have to be heat bonded to the glass screen (not just stuck to it) to provide shatter resistance.

    EDIT it appears the OEM polycarb screen is replaceable after all.

    I actually put a beetle unicorn pro series case on mine, well built looks good on the phone has a nice screen protector and port covers, yes it will allow for wireless charging (that was my first question). I live in a house with all tile floors so I figure no matter how tough a case I need to stack the deck in my favor as much as I can. The case didnt add too much bulk to the phone and its actually a nice grip. the front edge comes up nicely to protect the screen even more. I would suggest this one if your looking for that extra protection. https://www.amazon.com/SUPCASE-Full-...cUvbUpU5266506

    It is removable. See the main thread

    I put a Zagg Protector and a Pelican case on it. Should hold up.

    I had the same experience. I held off for months because of the hype about this phone. I had a Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro for over 3 years. I never used a case or screen protector and it still looked new when I replaced it. After a few weeks the S7 Active already had scratches and even a little chip on the screen from who knows what. Definitely does not live up to the hype.
