Pre-installed Screen Protector Scratches Easily

    Just got my first OnePlus phone. The pre-installed screen protector scratches way too easily.

    Question how best to remove it and replace it with a glass screen protector.

    The pre-installed screen protector is plastic, but if it scratches way too easily, you might want to reconsider how you store your phone. It will peel off by starting at a corner. Underneath is gorilla glass, but not scratch proof.

    Pre-installed screen protector scratches only if you scratch it. And it purpose is to protect your screen, not to remain intact. By scratching, it's taking the scratch you'd had done to your screen.

    Thanks. It's a known problem from techs at phone stores. I'm hoping OnePlus has glass screen protectors. I've never scratched mine on my HTC and not as prone to fingerprints.

    Thanks, but it's annoying to see. I'm very careful but techs at phone repair places have heard same complaints. Glass screen protectors are the only way to go.

    Once you have glass, you can't go back.

    Mine lasted about 7 months before getting a big scratch in it from a key in my pocket while moving around in a cramped car,

    Took it off and used Orzly film screen protector which is noticibily thinner.

    No problem. The Orzly one is good because it gives you 10 screen protectors in one pack. Difficult to get them on but plenty of chances to get it right.

    Would recommend getting some alcohol wipes from Amazon compatible with tech,as they don't include any in the pack and it's difficult to get the screen completely clean and dust free without them
