No, the preinstalled screen protector I was talking about is supposed to prevent the screen from shattering when dropped. It's glued on a scratch-resistant screen, but it gets scratched easily :-| (I had no idea Sony is that crazy). That's why I want to pry it loose to apply sth like the one you recommended, Stitchawl.
