I popped out the screen protector on my defender and noticed that my case has started creaking. I popped it out due to me already having a static one on the screen, and the built in defender protector affected sensitivity much to the point where my typing became affected. So I was considering to have my case exchanged, but before doing so I put the screen protector back on the case and applied it back to the phone. To my surprise the case stopped creaking. Have any other Otterbox Defender users experienced this issue after removing the built-in protector? My case was made in China btw. Thank you to all that chip in!
