I have had two of these cases now for my Moto X and each one, there is a NOTICEABLE gap between the screen and the built in protector. I've used the defender on various Samsung devices and never noticed this...Is this just the way it is? should I pop out the built in protector or do you think this is defect? Like I said, I've had it on 2 from different sources.

Thanks all

Most people pop them out I think....I did. That screen is the only cheap thing about the case. Then go naked or get a different screen protector.

I think the gap is always there for this model. And the screen protector is extreme (but so is the rest of the case). I can't swipe down to list my notifications with the defender case on.
The other problem I have with the defender is its really hard to take off. I switch my SIM card between my Moto X and my Dell Streak. I only use the defender when I'm sure I won't be switching phones and when I go for a hike or something like that.

UPDATE>>>>
The Otterbox, while an AWESOME company, missed the boat with this one - The constant need to double tap entries and the inability to depress the "P" killed me and I ordered the Trident Kraken - Half the price on the "ZON" and the built in is perfect, so far...

My defender, while a great set of protection, is failing at the thin strip of rubber over the charging port. It has ripped in a strange way, kind of looks like a bubble in the rubber. I use it constantly as I do a lot of outdoor activities and can deal with the screen protector quirks.

I have the grey/white defender. There is a gap between the screen and the protector... ive read that you can either put a screen protector under it ... or remove it. When I removed it on my atrix hd defender, it left residue on the screen and it still hasnt come off. I think it came from the adhesive on the case..
