2.) That screen protector is VERY thick and strong. No wonder the stylus input wasn't being picked up properly.

3.) Screen: MUCH BETTER. There is no question. Shouldn't even be up for debate. Right before we took this off, we were looking at photos. More clear, brighter.

4.) Touch input: Dramatically better. I have two stylus (styli?), a cheapo and an expensive one, both work great on it now. Even light strokes with the pen register now. If you need to apply a ton of pressure to draw straight lines, then you need to remove the plastic. Try with Draw Something and SBMX. So. Much. Better.

I'm sure there was a reason Sony put this piece of plastic on, but I feel I'm finally using the tablet to its potential. Pro far outweighs con.
Did your wife put an other screen protector on it? And if so, how is the stylus experience then?
If not, not too scared of scratches?

Thanks!

Wow, I'd seen this thread before, but I can't believe I took this long to remove the screen protector from my tablet.

The clarity and brightness are much better, as well as the touch response.

Needle was an awesome idea! I'm quite surprised!

And the result is fantastic. Mine got a big scratch in the center... gone.

Question is though, with the Xperia Tablet that has the anti-finger print and splash proofing, will removing this affect that?

My advice, put it off and clean the screen surface with window cleaner and cotton.

Improved touch panel.

I think the Xperia Tablet doesnt have a screen protector on top, or if it has, its just some very thin film for water proof.. It feels like solid glass when touching it, unlike my Arc S which has this plastic feel to it..

Default Removed film within short seconds

This thread is a little old, but I've been struggling wether or not to get rid of my Tablet S. I have a love/hate relationship with it. For my gaming uses it's very powerful and fast. But I've been wanting some stylus input on it so bad. I've been trying to remove that factory film on it for months with no luck, until today I took out an Xacto blade, and very carefully, using the blade part to lift the film, it was out in LESS THAN A SECOND! I really suggest anyone else to try it. I'll post pics and feedback soon. I might eventually get another more stylus enabled tab for drawing purposes. NO IPAD....apple has dissapointed me terribly....
