    i decided to pull it off, but i think my iPhone is not as smooth as first i bought it.

    it's like there is residues on the screen but i can't see a thing, the screen is so clear but i believe this sticky thing is caused by the screen protector.

    i have tried cleaning it using damp clothes, alcohol, and water, but it's still having the sticky feeling.

    it's hard to play games that use analog d-pad like Pro Evolution Soccer.

    any idea how to make it perfectly smooth again like brand new?

    If the screen protector was sticky then did it not come with a solution to stick it down with like the InvisibleShield ones do?

    Most protectors that come with solutions use vacuums to stick so they wouldn't leave a residue.

    Whatever you do be very careful, the screen has protective coatings and using chemicals on it may degrade it.

    Yup, Goo Gone is great for removing sticky residue.
