    If I was you I would returned case is a piece of crap. Might wanna check around your Touch ID make sure the residue is not all ready there. It looks like a rectangular stain around the Touch ID

    Taking the screen protector should get rid of your issue right

    I wish I could take a picture but it's hard to get it in a pic to show. It's more noticeable when you touch around the Touch ID

    Sweet, they need to get on the ball with the 6 Plus cases. Thanks.
    My Defender is the older version with a cover over the home button. It was difficult at first pulling up the Control panel, but it got easier with experience. I rarely use the Control panel anyway. This older version is better at keeping dust and debris out.

    I own a defender and for protection it's great for looks it's an eyesore. I still use it anyways at work and what not. If you hate dust behind a screen protector the otterbox will drive you insane because you will have to take your phone out every few days and give it a wipe down. I'd suggest getting the tempered glass installed at a kiosk to your satisfaction then pop the plastic glass out of the defender and go that way personally
    Now there's some good advice right there ...

    I've been looking for this one in stores. Haven't been able to find one yet. All I can find is the black or gray one. I'm jealous.

    So let me ask taking the otter screen protector off will in fact make the phone move? Texting sucks with screen protector on

    I take all my screen protectors off from my Otterbox's right away. Never had any movement that's noticeable. Screen protectors suck in my opinion.

    If it's fitted on snug, it doesn't suck. I've been using the Defender for years with the protective screen. No problems texting.

    Same here. Countless defenders used, have never taken the built in protector off and never have had a problem.

    Just got the OtterBox Defender for my iPhone 6, and I'm definitely having trouble bringing up the Control Panel. This may be amplified by the fact I also have the Zagg GLASS protector installed, but I'm not quite keen on the idea of removing either that or the OtterBox shield.

    Had the same issue with the Griffin Survivor case I switched from, but eventually figured it out -- but with the OtterBox's hard plastic casing covering right up to the edges of the screen it's definitely going to be more difficult.

    Did you find a specific method that works best for you? I seem to be able to *randomly* pull up the Panel if I just keep flicking at it from the "edge" of the Home/Touch ID button...

    I took the built in screen protector out and put a tempered glass screen protector on and it fit perfectly no issues
