Someone else with the Otterbox Defender for the 5: do you have this issue?

    The case seems like it's a little bit too big for the phone. When I shake the case back and forth from side to side, I can hear the phone moving back and forth in the hard plastic.

    This is easiest to replicate by putting in headphones and moving the jack back and forth: for me, the phone moves left to right just over a millimeter - enough to cause me to be concerned about scratches.

    Is this an isolated issue, or are you guys seeing the same thing? If I'm the only one, I'll just submit a warranty request and be done with it, but if this seems to be a manufacturing issue I may switch to the Commuter.

    Thanks!

    Edit: I also seem to be experiencing the "oil slick" issue intermittently. Anyone else?

    Partial fix

    I won't have my otterbox for my IP5 til tomorrow. I am however very familiar with your watermarking problem (oil slick). This video shows how to fix that. I use this trick on my otterboxes with my IP4S about once per month. Works like a charm.
