    Replacing Otterbox Defender's screen protector

    Does anyone have any high-quality pictures of their phone with an Otterbox Defender case, but with a different screen protector in place of the built-in one that is part of the Otterbox?

    The built-in screen protector allows too much dust behind it.

    I know it's fairly easy to remove the built-in screen protector of the Otterbox and I am contemplating installing something like a Zagg screen protector (or privacy protector), then re-installing the Otterbox. I just don't know how it will fit, does the Otterbox bezel completely cover the aftermarket screen protector for example?

    Quality pictures would be helpful, as well as the brand/style of screen protector that you used.

    Thanks!!!

    Don't put the otterbox defenders protector over a zagg, you won't like the results.

    I took the defenders protector out, used alcohol and soap and water to remove the adhesive that holds it in, and put a zagg on one maxx and a military shield on my other maxx, I like the armor suit military shield more. Not so grippy.

    I don't have pictures but I did exactly what you're taking about and it looks awesome. Just make sure you get the rest of glue off from the O box before you put it back on, also don't use any strong chemicals like googone.

    Good luck

    Thanks, I don't want to use both, just replace the one on the Defender.

    Which brand did you use and does the Otterbox cover it completely?

    Thanks!

    I used a zagg, I like the way they feel. Although I'm tempted to try what 94 was using......But if I ever add a second line its going to be for a iPhone 6 or g3 Hehe.

    Edit: I used the zagg and you can't see the edge is the zagg if that's what you mean, so in other weirds the O box covers all edges of the zagg.

    Thanks, exactly what I was asking.

    94 - How about the militaryshield, does the otterbox cover all edges of the screen protector?

    Thanks!

    Yes, the military shield and zagg are nearly identical, but IMHO the military shield has a better fit on the screen. So yes it covers.
