This is getting annoying. I know I can remove it and stick a regular protector on. there's something about modifying otterbox case that I don't like... I'm a huge believer in otterbox

Holy crap! First time I would have seen that I would have ripped that screen protector off.

Just remove it an place another on the screen. I did it and I am really happy. Having used many cases including the Commuter I can say that without any doubt the Defender is the best case in terms of protection and for my taste it is not too bulky.

On the negative side some people calling me experienced some echo problems that lately seem to disappear on their own.

Remove the screen protector and put a stock on one on the screen. But beware that all that dirty will be inside the case after that and test up the sides of your phone.

For me this will be my list otterbox case. I wouldn't have minded the cost if it was made in America but to pay this kinda of money for Chinese quality is ridiculous.

Ive had my knight colored defender for a month now and i really have nothing bad to say. I did take the screen protector off and replace it with an ebay cheapo. It looks awesome. I dont have the echo problem everyone is talking about. The best thing i can say about this case is this is the 1st defender ive owned where the silicone is just a snug as it was on day one. The case still fits very good and looks awesome. Im extremely happy with my purchase

Just took the protector off and as I suspected the case creeks on the side when you squeeze it ugh..

Has anyone experienced the side of the case scraping your stick on screen protector up? I haven't but I feel like it could grab the side

So I have heard all of the pros to taking the screen off. So what are the cons?

It does seem to creek but still it is much better with the screen protector off. To be honest the Defender case isn't the best manufacturered case but still it is the best protective one. Unfortunately it is also really expensive. But all things considered this is the case I plan to keep using.
