I took that plastic backing off like the first 10 minutes I had it lolHere's my two cents. If you plan on putting your phone in the Vehicle Dock, forget using an Otterbox commuter case. I bought one and it didn't fit all together. I'm going to try installing the InvisibleShield proably tomorrow night.
As it is right now, I've had my phne for about 1 3/4 months. The only damage it has sustained is the protective plastic backing is starting to come off. That's it. I lifted up the plastic, and the phone is not scratched at all, then reapplied it as best as I could. Some people feel that's petty but I like to keep my phone looking as close to as it did at stock (on the exterior), and keep the stickers along with it. I'm fairly rough on my phone, and do not have a screen protector and so far have not had any issues with screen damage. Then again, I'm not exactly 6 feet tall and/or deliberately throwing my phone across a room or off of a balcony to see if it can endure fall damage.
Now I'm kind of curious about the end result, if, someone with a MAXX traveled to Dubai and threw their phone off of the Burj Khalafi, how it would look after hitting the ground. That's about 2,717 or so feet in the air. That, or lost it while skydiving from about that height or heighter.
