    I have the black iphone 6 Otterbox Defender on my white iphone. The only problem I have is the phone moves in the case a little left to right, and a lot up and down, my solution was I cut a few strips from an aspirin box and placed on the sides so it does not move at all, with the ip5 otterbox a lot of people complained the movement scatched the back of the phone. Does anyone else notice there phone does not fit snugly in the Otterbox? I have also went ahead and put a Verizon Tempered Glass Screen Protector on and removed the Otterbox one, works a lot better for me, like no screen protector at all!

    I hand this on one of my 5 cases. I just installed a Zagg screen protector " the back one" on the back of my phone and it solved the issue.

    I was going to type a long tutorial on how to remove dust from underneath your Zagg Glass shield, but her is a video that will show you better...
    Tape doesn't work on tempered glass protectors i tried that it works on the plastic protectors only

    If you removed the built in screen protector then it will loosen it up the case and your phone will move. I had defender cases for 5s with the built in screen and it didn't move once i removed it I can see it was loose and it moved up and down..

    I've done it several times. Verizon installed a glass shield on a galaxy note 3 for me and it took me 15 minutes to get all of the dust out with a piece of tape. I would not have suggested it if it doesn't work. You must not have tried very hard, you can even lift the glass protector with your finger nail and peel it back. I've done that multiple times with the Zagg Glass shields.

    Don't buy it if you want to remove the screen protector. They stuck it on there in a much wider piece of plastic taking it off results in a lot of glue being exposed

    No it moved when the otterbox screen protector was in, not violently moved, but press your power button, your phone while shift, press your volume keys and the phone will move, most of the reviews on Otterbox.com say the same thing.. I have had the ip5 otterbox, same space in shell, ip5s defender was the best! I dont know why your phone would move when you took your screen protector out of your 5s, those cases were snug as a glove!! I must say removing the screen protector has helped a ton with the ip6 case! The tempered glass is a lot thicker holding the phone in place much better! The ip6 defender case also had their screen protector a few mm away from the screen, felt horrible, like pressing an old env touch screen, and they scratch up soo easy, I still have 10 colors for the old 5s laying around here and the screen protectors on the defender stink.

    The best way to get them out is to heat them up with a hair dryer and then when they are hot slowly push them out, I had 0% glue residue left doing it this way, it all was attached to the screen protector. I do have to admit, they did use MORE glue on the iphone 6 defender though! but the hair dryer really does work well, no sticky at all in my case!

    This is my experience with the Otterbox Defender...When I had the iPhone 4, I put it in an Otterbox and the case severely gouged my front glass above the screen in the bezel area. What happened was dust or maybe sand got in between the case and the phone and really did a number on my iPhone 4. I did not notice it until I took the phone out to sell it. Needless to say, I got a lot less for my phone because of the gouges. From then on I always remove the built in protector and buy a Zagg shield. Like RescueEMT911 said, the case fits much tighter also. Win win.

    I have the old Defender version on my 5. I have removed it to clean twice in 13 months. My wife has the new version on her 5c, and has to remove to clean about once a month.

    I had to remove the one on my 5S all the time to clean. The hole for Touch ID made life miserable. The film on the preserver was a life saver and I never took that off to clean.

    Does the iphone 6 move around at all in the case, before you put the lid on? Space on the sides and top and bottom?

    Just asking because I called Otterbox and the rep said the black was produced first with this problem, but she was sending the white hard shell, she said the colors were produced at a later time and fit correctly

    I have the black and only complaint is the screen protector was a bit unflush on the screen. The camo ones always have and always will in my opinion fit better... The outter rubber is made of a more solid rubber and feels smooth on the back... Doesn't get all dusty like the soft rubber

    Ok you were right about the built in protector on my otterbox it got me insanely enough to go buy myself a 5th zagg glass once again some specs behind the glass, but was able to remove them with tape, now I removed the otterbox built in protector but it left the glue residue how do I remove the residue?

    You are gonna think I'm nuts but honestly take a bit of lighter fluid or gasoline on a rag and the glue wipes right off. Just make sure you rinse the case well afterwards. This works believe me

    Get yourself some "Goo Gone" works wonders to get rid of the residue.

    No it's better cause it's cut out by the home button so it eliminated that issue

    The Otterbox Defender is by far my Favorite case for my 5S and now the 6! But the case and ability to use is so much better when you take the screen protector out and put a tempered glass one in!

    For any glue residue that was left I jist took it off with Goo Gone, then cleaned it well with Dawn Dish Detergent, just to make sure the goo gone wouldnt damage the phone finish if any was left.. In the end no glue left and did not damage the otterbox or phone at all, I actually did this to all 3 Otterboxs that were bought for self and girlfriend.. No problems
