Hi,
I have the M8 with slickwraps and tempered glass protector, when i buy a otterbox defender is it ok to remove the screen protector from the otterbox? Does it also fit with the slickwraps on?

I did that with my defender. Just removed the cheap plastic screen protector and rocking it with my tempered glass one...Just clean off the residual adhesive that was used to hold the original plastic on there with some alcohol or something and you're good.

I have been wanting to put a tempered glass screen shield on my phone but have an otterbox defender with the screen shield removed . Always been concerned I wouldnt have enough room in the case to have one . What screen shield are you using right now 4.6 Love

I took it out of my Defender too. Don't like how sloppy and how much space there is under under the so called protector. Still haven't put a screen protector one yet though...
I'm going to get a skin similar to the slickwraps as well, so hope it fits too! I use the Otterbox at work and go with just the skin when I go out...

I have a nillkin screen protector and it doesn't fit with my defender. The corner of the glass gets pushed up and peeled off. The glass sits back down after the clips are undone.

Perhaps you could try sanding some plastic off the defender in that area if it's a very small point of contact that's getting in the way.

I had the same issue with my m7 and the otterbox defender. I popped the screen protender off the defender but when i put it on it peeled back my screen protector. I put a new screen protector on my phone then waited about 3 days then put the otterbox on and it didnt come off
