You should put these questions to OtterBox.

A great option for those otterbox cases with built in screen protectors is to remove the screen protector and buy a cheap Tempered Glass screen protector off eBay for like $10 and get the clarity and responsiveness that you would with no screen protector on it at all. I do this with all my otterbox defender cases and it's so much better and actually protects your display better than before plus the other advantages I mentioned above.

Aside from my S7 Edge because of the curved screen, I always buy tempered glass screen protectors like Paul mentioned and to be quite honest I haven't used Otterbox in years. I sold plenty of them when I was at Mobile Shop and Glentel but I found Spigen, Incipio, and Verus as my new favorite manufacturers. They provide similar protection but with more style and better design.

Not to mention more reasonably priced. Yeah they don't have a lifetime warranty but the only cases I've actually ever broken are Otterbox cases which is pretty fitting isn't it lol.
I second all 3 of those brands as well as Poetic, they make some pretty sick cases as well.

Biggest problem I've had with some Otterbox Defender series cases was that over time dust would get behind the built-in screen protector and the retaining clips that hold the inner shell together would break too easily. That being said, their warranty service is the best in the business, in my opinion. I've kind of gone the same route as Paul by removing the built-in screen protector and instead used a Zagg Original or HDx screen protector.

If you've purchased an Otterbox Defender series case, chances are you're not too concerned about preserving the sleek appearance of your smartphone and you're willing to make this trade off in exchange for rugged protection. Ballistic, Urban Armour and Griffin are cases that I've used in the past with very good results overall.
