does the screen protector lay flat on the screen? Does it distort sound? etc...

I tried the Lifeproof Fre for the iPhone Xs and while I liked the overall concept, it still was not to my satisfaction (much like the recent products). That said, I really liked the Lifeproof Next case but ended up with an OtterBox Pursuit instead.

I did not like how hard it was to get the dust out of the case before installing the device and then the built in screen protector destroys the quality of the screen. It reminded me of using an iPhone 3GS. I would love a waterproof case as I have toddlers but I will use the OtterBox Pursuit until the Catalyst Case comes out.

Did the screen protector at least lay flat on the screen?
Have you tried that Belkin Invisiglass they sell at apple?

It laid more flat than previous versions but still had a small gap near the top, bottom, and sides.

Well that doesnt sound good, my otterbox defender screen protector lay flat on the screen
Yeah I use the OtterBox Pursuit which allows for a glass screen protector. I will not use a case with a built in screen protector.

I have a Diztronic case for a thin case until Magpul releases their field case, and I have a screenless defender case since the Lifeproof case wasn’t out at the moment
