Default Does your Dot View Case close all the way??!

I just got my new Dot Case from VZ, but the bloody thing doesn't close all the way. The front flap is not flush with the screen so its hard to see the notifications. I do have a tempered glass screen on there, but I don't think that is the actual cause of the flap not being flushed. I'm just wondering if I got a lemon?

Tempered glass screen protector off - closes all the way nicely.

Tempered glass screen protector adds just enough thickness to cause the front flap to not close as it increases the height against the hinge for the cover. Bummer

I look at this two ways. Cover of the dot case negates the need for a screen protector....or I can choose a case that the screen protector is able to work with (I did this, having had the dot case and learned the hard way about the fit).

Did you confirm this yourself? I'd hate to remove the the expensive glass protector only to find out that it isn't the reason why the flap doesn't close all the way.

Confirmed only in my situation for the Tempered Glass protector I installed.

I have the nillkin glass protector...only one I can confirm. Dot case closed perfectly without the glass installed. With the glass installed, stayed open and would not fully close.

Thanks....it's the exact same glass I have. Looks like the Dot case is going back.

Same issue here. Glass protector and when the dot view case arrived it won't close because of the protector. Case is ugly anyway so it is going back tomorrow.

If it's anything like the normal flip case it may take a few weeks to break the case in. I had the flip case one the M7, and many complained about this. After a week or two it was just fine.

A brand new dot view case didn't close all the way on my phone (with Verizon screen protector.)

But since the case breaks bluetooth voice dialing, I immediately returned it.
