Got a weird question.

I was looking at my back camera... noticed a plastic film. Is that to remain or be peeled off?

You peel it off. It's just like the plastic film as a bumper on the chrome around the phone; it is all to be removed.

you can leave it if you'd like for a while because it does have a small hole for the lens to look through, but it bugged the hell outta me, so i promptly took it off

Remove it. It's nothing but a dirt catcher.

that little POS took forever to get off. I couldn't fit my fingernail under the plastic to save my life.

If people do have trouble peeling of that plastic, try putting tape on top of it and pulling it off. Worked in one shot for me.

I had an issue trying to remove it as well, until I popped off the back cover of the phone. Then it was super easy to get at.

This piece of plastic was annoying the hell out of me. It came scratched and looking terrible and it was a REAL pain trying to remove it using my fingernails. The tape method worked like a charm, thanks!!!
