So how did you get the defender case already? I will be pretty upset if you tell me through the Otterbox site since I ordered mine early on Wednesday right after they went on sale and mine didn't get shipped until today. I even paid for upgraded shipping. Go figure!
BTW, does taking off the built in screen protector leave a gap at all between the case front and the phone? How hard was it to remove? Never really thought about removing it before. Interesting thought. Maybe remove the built in screen protector and put on a tempered glass screen protector in its place?
