    I noticed the plastic around the phone looks like it would be a good protector, anyone put it in their leather case or other case without peeling off the plastic covering it comes with?

    Maybe you should actually read them, you might find something interesting or laugh a little. :p
    You are too much in the numbers.

    So I ended up cutting the top as they don't have holes for the speaker, so it was really hard to actually hear anyone talk. Keeping the back one on. Until I get the screen protector, I left the bottom over the home screen after discovering that accessibility option that puts a home button on screen.

    I think this is the first time the front plastic was physically connected to the plastic on the back of the phone. I wound up cutting the plastic such that the plastic on the front came off, and I left the plastic on the back of the phone on.

    I figure it would not hurt to have it on the backside of the phone. I also slipped the phone into an Apple leather case immediately after removal from the box. Will the plastic on the back make a difference? Maybe, maybe not. Now that the phone is in its case, I don't even notice it.

    With cases in the past, I have noticed dirt get between the case and the back of the phone, and I am always a bit paranoid that these will scratch the back of the phone.
