Rated 3 out of 5 by Defender case Only one real issue with the defender as I've had with other belt style holders.......should you catch the body on something it breaks the unit.....maybe a ram mount ball or some variation that will separate under stress and can be put back together would be a viable option and reduce warranty and replacement claims.Should I patent the idea?

Rated 5 out of 5 by This is my best purchase so far I think the protectection on this phone is one of the best in the industry due to its reseliance July 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by over protective this was sent as a replacement for the Commuter version...which I love. I am not feeling any love for the Defender. The case is difficult to remove/open when needed. The belt clip for the white case is black so it doesn't match and not very secure either. The screen protector is integrated into the case instead of a stick on film and too thick so it looses contact making it difficult to use phone features and swype is nearly impossible. This case is also bigger than the Commuter July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It a work horse The case works great . I am outside in the dust and dirt every day and the case stays together and does not fail me. It protects my phone when I drop it with dirty or wet hands. July 9, 2014

Q: 
There is a noticeable bowing outward on the screen protector "film" of about 1/16in that makes it nearly impossible to accurately swipe. Is this normal? If so, is there anyway to compensate for the lack of swipe capability? I've heard great things about Otter cases and am a little disappointed if this is indeed the "norm." Thanks!

A: 
its the integrated screen protector. Try the Commuter version which comes with a stick on film instead of the hard plastic screen cover (works perfectly). The Commuter case is also smaller, which for me is the reason I chose the S4 mini.

A: 
This is normal and you may need to take the clear cover off the case and use a stick on protector.

Howdy Chris! I think you may have a dud, sorry to say. I've had my case about a month, and haven't had any trouble swiping, or noticed a bulging of the screen protector. Manufacturing error? I'd email Otter box and ask them to replace it. Hope this helped, cheers!

A: 
I'm not sure, ChrisS, but you might have the same problem that my wife encountered when she first put her S4 Mini into the Defender case. She, too, complained that the Defender's screen protector was bowing and/or that there was a "gap" between the protector and the Mini's touchscreen. I hadn't had any such problem, so I tried my hand at remounting her Mini in the Defender. What we discovered is that she wasn't getting the side latching points on the Defender completely closed. The rubbery outer case will slip cleanly over the inner hard skeleton case even if it isn't closed tightly. Therefore, you might try this: remount your S4 mini in the hard inner skeleton case by sliding the case's front and back together at the TOP first, then seating it with a firm squeeze at the BOTTOM, and then simultaneously giving the RIGHT AND LEFT EDGES of the case a very hard squeeze. You should feel the Defender's hard case snap/lock into a nice, gapless/bowless fit around the S4 Mini. If you don't, then turn the phone-and-case face down on a hard surface and (using your thumbs) put a good bit of pressure on the right and left edges (where the latching points are) until it snaps/locks together. Then, slip on the grippy/rubbery outer case and enjoy your new phone! This has worked for both of us with our S4 Mini-and-OtterBox-Defender combos. I hope it works for you!
