    I saw some comments saying something about "Heat Problems" when having the Otterbox Defender - is this true?

    I'm not worry about the heat, but I'm worry about the plastic scratching the band of the phone (black).

    SOmething else I do not like about the otterbox is that you can feel the phone moving inside the case.

    You sure you have it in there correctly ? Mine does not move at all.

    If you can feel the phone moving, you did not install it correctly. My ip5 is sitting tightly wrapped inside my Otterbox Defender. I'm jiggling as I type with no movement whatsoever :D

    No heat or rattling, but I already have damage where the clip of the holster clips to the plastic of the case. The rubber is already torn from 1 day of use. Going to contact Otterbox for a replacement.

    Mine moves, enough that I took a match and cut a small piece and put it between the case and the phone in order to keep it from moving, I just took the phone out and went naked.
