So, I got the OtterBox Defender case for the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, and I feel like the built-in screen protector isn't as responsive as with other screen protectors I have used.

Is this the case, or is there something wrong with my screen?

I find that I have to press multiple times for my touches to register.

With the otterbox cases I've had in the past, I've just pulled off the included plastic protector and added my own.

Do their plastic protectors have this issue?

It's only when I press, not swipe.

You may notice, that the installed plastic protector may leave a gap between it and the screen, this is usually what causes it to be less responsive.

While they are well engineered, sometimes manufacturing processes and tolerances of both the case and device vary, so you might be able to feel the first touch of the plastic protector, then pressing harder feel it make contact with the screen and feel that gap. Usually its just a matter of not pressing hard enough because (at least for myself) you stop the press when you feel the first protector, and aren't making full contact with the screen.

My two cents is to remove the plastic protector (glued on) and install a film type one. Warranty be damned.

Ah, yes, that could totally be the case.
