    Does anyone know if I remove the otterbox defender screen protector if I can put a zagg on safely? I'm sure I could squeeze it together, I Just don't want to knick the maxx casing in the progress.

    Yes you can .....I did the same thing but when you take the otterbox screen protector off make sure you clean ALL the glue off the case before putting it back on.....I used goo gone to clean the glue then washed it with dawn dish detergent and let it air dry for a bit before putting back together

    I'm contemplating a zagg for my maxx. How does it feel compared to the standard Verizon screen protector???
    Also I plan to leave my protector from my otter box defender on over it.

    It doesn't feel like cheap plastic....it has a more glassy rubber feel and its much easier to keep clean

    Kewl, hows the install process?? And does it cover the complete screen or is there a little bit of it uncovered like the vzw protector?

    Will it work well with my defenders cover over it?

    Install is simple just read all the directions before starting and if your still not sure watch a video on you tube...with the otterbox it covers all the screen...tried to use my wife's bionic to take a picture but can't see it will try again and upload it

    Sorry to kinda sidetrack your thread but.
    I have had the defender on for a week and the screen protection is already scratching good.

    No, but that's a good idea. I wax the top of my defender cover, so its slicker than normal... keeps the scratches down to a minimum. I didn't think it would work, but it appears to.

    I just don't like the vzw screen protectors

    Your running a defender with the protector pushed out.... that's obviously what jimmysiff88 meant. No I plan to keep my protector in my defender and run the zagg as well for a backup. You notice that big cutout at the top of the defender, So you can hear the speaker in calls?? Sand can get in there... I've seen a few cases of that happening and I want to keep it from happening to me.


    So in your opinion it will work well as a second line of defense? I think it would.

    Thanx for the advice!

    That's half the reason, the other half is that the defenders sp makes it look pixelated.

    I went ahead and took out the defender sp and out on the zagg, it was well worth the change.

    My only concern is the wet application.

    I did the same.
    Not a big fan of the defender,when i did the screen protection switch(1st removal of all three layers of protection) there was dirt all over.

    Think my wifes commuter is better,thou it does not see the conditions i see. Too late now

    Just my opinion and I have no experience with it but zagg makes the shield for the entire phone, you could put one on under the defender to protect against that.... if it works well that is.

    I just got the Zagg shield for the Maxx; I have previously had the full device ones, but they currently only have a screen version for the maxx, not a full device version. Not sure if there will be one in the future.
