Default Otterbox + heat

Anyone else using an otterbox have a problem where the touchscreen goes all wonkey after the screen is on and gets hot?

I am about to cut the screen protector out and put a stickon one in its place

No overheating problems here but I just ordered some cheap screen protectors to do the same. Touch screen is not nearly as responsive with that thick piece of plastic on it. Have an Atrix 4G with a Ballistic HC with the same problem. Touch screen behaving funky until I removed the built in SP. I do think that removing the screen protector on the Vivid OBox will make it a little loose. It is already a bit creaky so we will see. This i the first Otterbox I am not happy with :/

I have this problem when I put my phone in my pocket without turning the screen off. The screen heats and the pixels wash out. Normal, as far as I'm concerned, since it happens most days and reverts after 5 minutes.
Goodbye XDA, you won't be missed. Never have I seen a lousier Android community unwilling to take care of its devs.

Also, give me a refund for my XDA Premium app.
