Leave it since it does not actually interfere with the camera due to cut outs over the lens and offers slight additional protection as the glass is very delicate.

re:

Agree with leave it there unless it's bugging you for some reason. It seems to add a small measure of very unobtrusive protection.

re:

I took mine off as soon as I got it out of the box. Before everyone started saying to leave it on.. If you can, sure.. why not? but personally I don't miss it... I'm also the kind of guy that doesn't use screen protectors.

re:

When I bought my phone, the sales person took it off and I didn't know enough then to leave it. So far, no issues here.

re:

DBrands(Not getting paid to say it.) has a cover for it and it looks like it would help alot. Mine cracked with the plastic on it.

re:

If it was meant to be removed, there would be a small tab to facilitate removal. IMHO, this plastic is supposed to remain and add a small degree of protection to the camera glass. On my lens cover there appears to be cutouts for the lenses and sensors which leads me to believe it is supposed to remain in place.

I still have mine on and I don't even notice that it's there. It's really a user preference as it may have no bearing on the camera lens issue. (Shattering)
My brother has a the Verizon variant and his plastic is off. I happen to have the T-Mobile edition and my plastic is on. Point is, it has no bearing on any issue with the camera....

That's odd..., my Verizon cane with it. It offers very little protection but something is better than nothing

I would keep it on. If you watch JerryRigEverything on YouTube, you can see that a deep scratch may crack the glass. The protector doesn't interfere with the camera at all due to the cutouts. I actually have a SlickWraps skin protector over it, which looks pretty cool actually.

I put the dBrand skin on my phone now because the plastic was removed when I bought the phone. I don't know if it will help but it can't seem to hurt and it only cost me 99 cents with free shipping.
