I, perhaps foolishly, had a rear camera protector put on my s21 ultra at i of the mobile phone accessory shops, a “no make” one, then unfortunately I dropped my phone and one part of it cracked, right on top of 1 of the lenses (but thankfully did its job and protected the lens) so now my photos are blurry. Any tips on how I get the protector off? It seems stuck on very firmly and I’m reluctant to strength it. I’ve since moved states and took it to some other phone accessory shop/berth who sell the protectors but they said they don’t know how to get them off…

Can you mail some pics?

I’d showtime by using a hair dryer or estrus gun to soften the adhesive (as suggested by @[email protected]
below) . Then get a plastic spudger and get information technology’s border betwixt the protector and the camera housing and pry it off slowly. Avoid metal tools as the housing is aluminum and metal tin can scratch it. If the mucilage is very strong, utilise isopropyl alcohol to dissolve/weaken the adhesive (use a syringe or dropper to get very small-scale quantities between the protector and camera housing) and see how it goes.

Y’all could try heating it up a bit to loosen the agglutinative.

Is heat a bad idea? Could the heat loosen up some agglutinative in the camera or photographic camera lenses that you don’t want to exist loose?

I’k likewise in the same gunkhole.

What if y’all try to slide the protector over to the side?

I’m worried virtually pulling out one of the lenses if I pull straight off.

I don’t call up a little flake of heat will be a problem. I use a hair dryer on the back of the phone every time i install a peel on my phone (every 2 months or so). Hasn’t caused any issue and so far. Only information technology’due south your device, so you take to determine whether it’southward worth the risk.

Their is an air gap between the protector and the lens covers (those discs of glass that you tin touch above the cameras, when there’s no covering on the phone), which are recessed in the frame. The screen protector doesn’t actually attach to the lens covers, just the camera housing. I don’t see how ripping out the protector will pull on the lens covers.

Merely similar i said above, information technology’due south your device and then choose whatever method you’re comfy with – as you have to alive with the consequences. I’thousand only saying what i would practise with mine if I had the same issue.

I’m also in the same boat.

What if you effort to slide the protector over to the side?

I’m worried nearly pulling out one of the lenses if I pull directly off.

Did yous end up solving this? I have the same issue

Non yet, been too busy to prep.

But I’m going to try to remove past sliding the protector sideways across the lenses, so at that place will exist a sideways force when the glue hopefully disengages. I’thousand hoping that’southward safer than pulling straight upwards away from the lenses.
