Camera [Q] Plastic layer on camera?

Hi guys,

For a long time I'm wondering is there's a plastic layer on the camera when you buy it. I notice something that could go for a plastic ring-formed layer around the camera lens, that holds a little dust at the rounded edges with time, but cant be pulled off? I tried all differend kind of things, but it won't come off... Still, I asked everyone of my family to see if they agree they see a plastic ring too, and they all said yes..

Have you noticed anything like this on your S4 camera?

Yes, there is a plastic guard on camera.

In my case, it popped out a bit from corner some months ago, which I later pulled off.

there is a plastic layer over it
remember I tried to pull it off also and had some trouble since it seem not to remove
try with a sharp razor (at least that way I managed to remove it)
