    I have an iPhone 6 Plus and was wondering if anyone has tried both the defender and voyager? If so, what one do you like best? I've used Otterboxes for probably 7 years but I've read a lot of mixed reviews on the latest one. Any help would be appreciated!

    I originally bought the voyager but I returned it and got the otterbox. The top piece of the voyager seemed pretty flimsy and the mute switch cover was really hard to get open. The otterbox seems sturdier and the ports are all easily accessible. I'm not a big fan of the built in screen protector on the otterbox so I ripped it out and got the zagg glass.

    Thanks for the reply! I bought the Otterbox tonight and already took it off because of the screen protector. I'm going to check out the Voyager tomorrow I think.

    I've got the otter box and the screen protector was the one thing that caused me To buy it, after having to spend another £237 after the screen on my 2 month old iPhone 6 broke, shattered after being dropped from 4 feet onto pavement, not taking anymore chances, always used otter box on other phones, first iPhone broken screen ever.

    I have used both, and returned the Voyager quickly. Found it to feel much cheaper than the defender. I keep the defender as my backup for when I need the excess protection.

    Thanks for the replies! Do your Otterboxes feel like there's air between your screen and the screen protector? Touch response on my screen was horrible so I took it off after about an hour. My dads 6 doesn't have that issue I don't think.

    I have a glass screen protector, so no issues

    I might put it back on tonight and see. I wanted the Lifeproof but really don't want to wait any longer. My next option was the Pelican Voyager but based on what you guys said I don't think I'll be satisfied.

    I bought the otterbox yesterday. The screen protector has a gap with the screen that is annoying, pretty sure I will be taking it back.

    Just take the screen protector out and install a glass. Far better IMO

    That turns a $60 purchase into a much more expensive one. I don't see the point of it.

    I understand, but you can get a good glass protector for a reasonable price through amazon

    I returned the Otterbox and went to look at the Pelican. The pelican is indeed cheap feeling. I guess the search will continue.
