Just a reminder, with screen off : a couple strips of electrical tape down each side will stop creaking

Re: Note 2 Otterbox Defender Case Review
Any one know how to turn down the mic sensitivity in this phone. Just got my replacement otter box in and it echos too. Anyone else with this echo I'm on sprint. Titanium note 2

+1 on the Mike sensitivity.

Got my defender but the echo is quite bad.

Still not sure on the screen protector either.

Have contacted otterbox as the power button was so bad the phone just constantly switched on and off continously.

Will see what they say.

Cheers

Got my replacement Otterbox today, which was a Commuter instead of a Defender.

The rubber layer is super flimsy, but no echo problem at least.

Maybe I'll buy a Seidio Convert case next time, since the design looks cool, and there is a kickstand integrated into the case.

Re: Note 2 Otterbox Defender Case Review
K my buddy just bought new note 2 two weeks after me. Same carrier and same color. I even threw my back on it just for test purposes. No echo on his with using my otterbox. Guess I will head to sprint and see what they say.

With the echoes are you using your own screen protector? Or the otterbox one?

Re: Note 2 Otterbox Defender Case Review
Yea Ive had my defender case for about a week and its the best case ive owned I have a few samsung cases as well flip covers and protective cases but the otterbox is just perfect I have no worries placing it anywhere I go . Its protected my only downfall that I disliked was the fact it didnt have a cover for the spen . Other than that its perfect with or without screen protector

It only disappears when I remove the outer silicone. I have contacted Otterbox and they agreed to send me a replacement case but I am really worried that this might be a design issue rather than a defective case one.

What is your experience with the Defender? Do you experience any similar problems? Please note that I use a stock rom.

PS. The Commuter works flawlessly.

Otterbox sent me a new case. I still have the echo problem. I guess their is no fix for this. But strangely my buddy has the same phone (verizon I'm on Tmobile) and case he has no echo

Dust got in and put a dust sized nick in my screen, so I used some clear tape and covered it up on both sides of the screen protector. no more dust under the home button. I'm going to replace the screen protector with ether a tempered glass protector or the feels like glass protector. I usually use invisesheld, but the s pen doesn't feel good with that screen protector.




Did you ever get the Voyager 2/tempered glass solution? Was wondering how that worked with the Otterbox Defender case. Was wondering if someone put one of those home button stickers on if it wouldn't also close up the home button hole space?

How would you say it is for holding in one hand and doing drawing or painting?
