    No responses?

    Is this issue addressed for you Otterbox Defender users? Or is no one even using this case? :)

    people usually put a tempered glass protector on and remove the stock clear one. fixes the issue.

    From the link I posted earlier, any idea what the "identation around the ear piece" is referring to?

    "i just wanted to tell everyone i also have the same issue with the ear piece indention on my Iphone 6.. it really shows up bad on the space grey model.. white model, not so much.
    Every otterbox case i’ve ever owned has damaged my phone in the same area,, the earpiece. Iphone 5, iphone 5S, iphone 6.. all had the same ear piece damage."

    It's pretty sad that you literally have to break your case in order to address it.

    Tried the defender day 1 when I got my IP6. Took it off within 24 hours because I saw the sticky imprint around the home button.

    When I have used a defender for my 6 plus I have had no issues at all. I use a hair dryer to remove the plastic screen protector and kept my glass on.

    Never had an issue

    Yeah but that defeats the purpose of the case. Otter box is just not what it used to be.

    I disagree. I am optimizing my case. When I use the defender (mostly for travel) I want the utmost protection. With the glass, I feel I get that.

    I have used a variety of OB's since my ip5, been pleased with all. Currently have the symmetry on my 6 plus, and will trade out to my Defender when necessary

    Have you experienced the indentation issue around the earphone piece that some people were experiencing?

    How about any dents or scratches around the casing?

    And lastly when did you get your Defender case? Seems a lot of these issues were reported during the first batch late last year, however, not going as far as to say the issues were addressed with the latest batch.

    Just saying.

    I actually had no issues. I really like the case but it is too big for an everyday case for me. I got it relatively early in release.

    Anyone else that has an Otterbox Defender that would like to share their experience with it?

    Any defects? Damage to the iPhone 6/6 Plus while using it?

    Have you noticed the power plug flap pressing against the charging plus when charging, bending over time?

    Ok, I just received my Otterbox Defender case and removed the screen protector while using a Tech Armor Ballistic glass screen protector, so far so good.

    Only thing I've noticed about the flaps is on the headphone jack and my plug is at a right angle and I can't use it.
