comment
" ...  it comes in neat packaging, just be aware that the phone ALREADY has a protective screen that they installed at the factory, they give you another screen protector but it is thicker and you don't really need it, AND it you are not careful putting the extra screen on top of the factory installed one creates air bubbles and can damage both screen protectors, so you will have to buy another one. ... just leave the phone alone and save the extra screen protector when the original one wears out, you will be glad you did.  ...  "
