Default Anti shatter film wear and tear

Hi all,
I have noticed that my asf is wearing on the right side of the screen because of my thumb/nail is always scrolling on the same spot, if o remove my asf then im naked on the screen so the wear would be less,
I have a galaxy nexus a few years now and the glass doesnt have any. Wear on. It of my scrolling finger

This is why I put a good quality screen protector over the anti shatter film.
Removing the asf increases the risk of the screen, well, shattering when dropped and the Sony logo is on the film and therefore lost when removing it.

Well, the logo is also a secondary concern to me. It will aid resale value though, I think.
I'm more concerned about the real reason it's on there, which is the anti shatter property.
I got front and back screen protectors included in box anyway, so they went straight on the phone before I even powered it up.

Edit - One of the layers that you can see may be the digitiser. I believe that's very thin. I cannot be sure though, as I can only see the asf and screen protector on mine and I'm not 100% certain on how the screen is assembled.

Well i removed my ASF and i can really recommand to everyone,much smooter,brighter more vibrant screen coulors and very slick front
And if i let my phone fall and breaks the screen so be it,with the film on it it will break to the only differents is that al the piecies aer stil on the phone hahah
