    I love my Otterbox case, it makes me feel secure, but god the screen protector collects scratches, dust, and crap like you wouldn't believe, despite the only thing touching it 90% of the time is the S-pen and I keep it in the belt holster IN my pocket. Now, I've been told to heat out the glue of the screen protector and apply another one, but is there a case+screen combo like Otterbox out there?

    I'm a fan of the Seidio Convert case. It ships with a screen protector that is separate from the case. The holster is also designed to connect to a bike or car mount that you can purchase separately.

    Anytime you have a plastic screen like that, it will collect dust.

    I am suprised Ballistic didn't make a case for this phone.

    At first the under screen stuff bugged me
    then I just clean it
    It gets easier to take off the more you do it & it does not the long
    I don't clean it as much now as used to it
    easy fix for such a strong case & the protection it offers
    Would rather take the 1 minute to clean than go another case

    Well, what do you use to clean it off well? I mean, Even with just my finger and the s-pen there's scratches, on the protector obviously, not the phone. I just wish there was a more complete seal. I might bite the bullet and just get a regular case with a seperate screen protector. How's the UAG type stuff?

    I got some gel tube of cleaner when I first got the phone at end 2012 or Start 2013 & its still going
    just a window cleaner works well & is probably what I use most
    other times just a spit on my fingers & rub
    most is just dust after all
    use a microfibre or any rag tissue or tee shirt for the outside of the screen that gets all the S-pen marks on it
    they are not scratches per se, more like removable markings
    All easy peasy really
    Also in time your tolerance to the dust may increase so it wont bother you as much, thats what helped me to get over it, so now when I do notice it it really does need a clean & done quite quick
    A bit of elbow grease on the outside screen protector does wonders

    What I did was install a screen protector, trimmed to fit the clear face of the Otterbox, covering the hole over the button. Thats where all the dust gets in and the button works fine covered by a screen protector. I dont get why Otter box puts a hole there for the button its not necessary and compromises a otherwise fine case. Rubber caps for the camera and S pen would be a nice touch also.

    I use a microfiber cloth slightly damp and then dry it off with a dry part of the microfiber.

    Some people just take the plastic cover off and put their own screen protector (see post above). I may try that one day.
