    Question Otter Box Defender case

    I got a Otter Box Defender case today for my Galaxy Note 2 but the screen does not lay down on the phone screen so I want to take the case off and return it. How do I get the case off I haven't seen any info on getting the thing off ?

    Peel the silicone off, use your nails to pop the tabs around the hard plastic. Should pop apart.

    Just an FYI - The built in screen protector on the defenders never truly does lay completely flat on the phone screen. I've noticed that there's always a tiny fraction of a mm of space between the protector and the screen. I've seen that on the defender for the iPhone line, BlackBerry line, as well as the Galaxy line. Most folks that I know simply rip out the builtin screen protector and use their own.

    I read that taking the screen out weakens the side of the case. It is kind of expensive of a case to gut it. I have taken the built in screen out to see how that works out for me.

    I don't know for something as big as the Note 2 but on the BB device we use for work there was no loss of anything when we removed the builtin screen protector. It improved the useability of the case immensely.

    Default Otter Box Defender case

    I removed the screen protector from my iPhone case before this and it was the first thing I did when I got this case. I dropped my iPhone a couple times with no adverse affect. I haven't dropped this one yet though. I replace the built in protector with a Zagg or Spigen SPG. I'm using the SPG now, but it seems like it likes to peel up a little around the corners. I'm probably going back to Zagg next time I need to replace it.
