    There is a watermark or rainbow effect beneath the screen protector of my defender case. Now I know this is common and it doesn't bother me in a visual sense.

    My question is does the term "watermark" imply there is moisture under the screen protector or is it just a figure of speech? Will it harm my phone at all?

    Pop out the stock screen protector and install an iSmooth protector...perfect;)

    Ok it sounds like its in no way harmful to the phone. So I won't worry about it thanks.

    I had this issue once with I think my 3G and the otterbox. It doesn't harm anything but was annoying, and I found a work around. Buy the non-glare (antiglare) screen protectors and put it on the iPhone itself and then put the Otterbox on. Not more water marks.
