Those of you who took your screensaver off right away, how has the screen held up. After a year mine has started to bubble in the crease and I'm wondering whether to replace it or just remove it.

Tolerate it until you can't.
The issues of material fatigue and delamination at the folding area inevitable. Extremes in temperature and UV exposure will likely exacerbate this.
Samsung knew this.

Getting it on right is the trick. I found the self adhesive ones to be quit trying to install, it be even harder on that device.
I use the wet apply hydrogel ones now. Aligning them is much easier and forgiving. They are very durable as well.
