Can I remove Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4’s screen protector
Compared to the last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers a more durable foldable display. Out of the box, both new foldables: Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 come applied with a Samsung screen protector, however, there’s a question – whether we can remove the screen protector or not.
On the foldable screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung applied the screen protector as an extra layer of security to safeguard the device from unwanted scratches and so on. Galaxy foldables are equipped with Samsung’s cutting-edge ultra-thin glass technology, however, the screen protector keeps the layer secure all time.
One word answer for the post title is – Yes, you can remove the screen protector of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphone, however, we recommend you not to pull it off. Compared to the regular glass panels, the foldable displays are not so strong and can be badly affected by minor scratches, accidental bumps and dust particles.
In the previous models, it was seriously recommended that users should not remove the screen protector of Samsung foldable phones. Meanwhile, the recent generation foldables have an unremovable screen protector, which can be removed by the user.
As per the info, some users found that the Galaxy Z Flip phone works well even without the pre-applied screen protector. Over time, the screen protector might start to peel off itself or could remove accidentally, however, it wouldn’t be good to remove it by yourself.
Screen protector apart, you can give additional durability to your Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable smartphone by applying official cases or covers. In case if anything goes wrong after removing the screen protector, your Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be repaired or replaced under a standard warranty of 12 months.
