As far as protection goes, this case can't be beat in my opinion. The 3 piece protection system provides multiple levels of drop protection, and the feel of the case really reflects this.
HOWEVER, and I do mean a big however, as many others have pointed out, the screen protector attached to the case makes usability REALLY annoying. Due to the gap between the screen protector attached to the face plate, you'll find yourself tapping fairly hard in order for the phone to register your touch. Secondly, and this doesn't bother me personally, the button covers on the back of the phone are a bit thick as well. This makes pressing the buttons difficult too.
My advice: Buy this case with the intention of buying a stand-alone screen protector that can be attached directly to the phone, then remove the built-in screen protector. This way, you'll have unbeatable protection, and NOT have to sacrifice usability. Not the most cost effective method, but it works well.
Pros: High quality, Durable
Cons: usability really takes a hit, get out your exacto knife we're going into surgery

In regards to the screen protector being a hassle, is it easily removeable?

After reading reviews about the screen protector making the phone difficult to use due to an air-gap in the fitment, my question is whether that built-in screen protector could easily be removed from the case and if I could just apply my own stand-alone screen protector from another manufacturer?
Yes and no. Yes, you can remove it via an exacto knife/razor and a steady hand. However, it's not a removable screen protector by design so you'll have some modifying to do on your own.
