I removed it too. Screen looks much nicer. But i think the sticky residue was making the screen not smooth to touch and swipe. So i wiped it with alcohol and then put a liquid screen protector (oleophobic coating) and now my compact's screen is so smooth to touch.
Yup! Now u have no front branding logo & off course no warranty. so how abt. carving TONY PONY in the blank top bezel? Let's see how it looks like!
It doesn't void warranty. If the screen smashes with or without the ASF then they're obviously not going to cover it. I took the ASF on my XPERIA Z and thinking of doing the same with my Z1C. Looks and feels better.
When I had my Xperia S, I had some pretty deep scratches so after 18 months decided to remove the shatter proof sheet. It was like a brand new phone. So I'll do the same with this one; wait until I've scuffed it up properly and then remove it.
