damn halo efect/watermark,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPhone 5 (Discontinued by Manufacturer)( Not for iPhone 5C ) Retail Packaging - White/Gray (Wireless Phone Accessory)
So.....I've always used an otterbox defender for my iphone, but this time around there's a damn halo effect/watermark in the center region that is very displeasing to the eyes...For $50, I'd expect the people at otterbox to make a damn good case, especially when their margins are so damn high. I will be returning the case, and will look at exploring other options, or maybe get an updated version of this case. I will say this, the weight of the phone + case together is much lighter than the previous model.
OTTERBOX....STEP IT UP...SERIOUSLY...
PS. The mute/unmute switch is hard to reach with people with bigger hands....

To get rid of the watermark you will need to put a regular screen protector on the phone, I know it doesn't make sense to put a screen protector since the case have one but it works.

Amazon Customer says:
I too had a watermark effect on using the Otter Defender case and it was driving me crazy. Then I realized I had the screen protector applied to the phone when I bought it. I took off the Otterbox and removed the after market screen protector then reinstalled the Otterbox and the watermark was gone. I am a happy camper.
On a after thought I bought my Otterbox from Amazon and went to Best Buy where I bought the phone and checked the prices there for the same Otterbox and it was priced at $59.95 compared to Amazon's price of $27.95. Quite a difference in price. I am handicapped and Best Buy does not believe in providing electrical carts for anyone. I am in the market for a large screen TV so I won't be going to Best Buy which isn't a best buy in my book.
