*** The Details
I recently purchased the Trident Cyclops case for my Note3 and while I love the case itself, I absolutely abhorred the integrated screen protector. It didn't fit well, color distortion and bad S-Pen drag.
Unfortunately the screen protector on the case is actually sealed to the bracket that locks the front of the phone down. If I mess with that then at the least I was messing with the cases' rated rain protection and at the worst could be breaking the bracket itself. I finally decided to go ahead and chance-it. I'm going to remove the stock screen protector and use some other 3rd party one instead.
I'm already using the Wireless Charging Receiver from TechMatte (which works perfectly fine with the Trident case) and gave my opinion on it in another thread and so they offered to send me their screen protector to try and review. This coincides well with my disliking the provided protector on the case, so I accepted.
TechMatte Screen Protector received, I took the Trident case apart and set about removing the one attached to the case bracket. I'm happy to say, once I started prying the protector off, it came away from the seal/tape quite readily. So not only was I able to remove the stock screen protector, but the seal was still intact as well. I then install the new screen protector to the phone, reattached the bracket, being careful to press down where the seal points are on the edges and voila!
Currently this screen protector is selling for $5 on Amazon, for a 3-pack! Highly recommended.
