As of now, I'm no longer sure if i have a factory applied screen protector. Could someone maybe confirm the absence or existence using the attached picture?

Yes, it was there!
Managed to remove it by using a needle.

It seams un-removable. Any suggestion to remove it?

thanks

I just finished removing my stock screen protector... and wow the clarity seems so much better. I simply poked the corner with a needle and slowely lifted until it seperated from the glass. Then cleaned after with diluted Windex.

Just found this thread and did it to mine. Had a couple light scratches I thought I'd just have to deal with, but not anymore.

The residue is a bit ick right now but I'm working on it.

Maybe I'm just happy and convincing myself of it, but it seems quite noticeably more responsive to touch.

How is the "underscreen" for durability? Gorrila Glasslike or no? 'Cause if that gets scratched then we're really pooched.

I find that the original protector is decent for scratches from normal use (dirty hands, fingernails ect) but if you try to scratch it or have kids playing games then it marks up readily. Mine has a few very small scratches only noticeable at night watching videos and I am very careful with it.

If I remove the protector is it safe to use without or should another be applied? Kinds defeats the purpose right? Or is it just more durable but less shatter proof?

More durable but less shatter proof is a good way to put it. It's not quite gorilla glass quality, but its pretty sturdy and would take a lot of neglect to scratch. I'm more afraid of dropping it now though.
