Droid MAXX: Cases
Considering making the move from my RAZR MAXX. The problem is, I can't find any cases I like. I used to have an Otterbox defender on my RAZR. I didn't like it because the hard plastic was right up against the phone and would eventually mar the finish. Also, the Otterbox plastic would eventually break and it was difficult to get off the phone when I needed to. The Otterbox belt clips are notorious for breaking, and I broke several.
I got a Seidio Dilex case with kickstand and belt clip. Love it. The silicone is all that touches the phone so it stays looking factory new. The case has been very durable in the few months I've had it. There is nothing covering the screen, which I like
However, Seidio doesn't make any cases for the MAXX yet. I an get an Otterbox Defender from Verizon as part of a bundle with the phone, but.....
Anyone know if a car that has what I'm looking for.

I just made the switch from RAZR maxx to DROID maxx and I love it so far. I have the otterbox commute one which is nice for me. I am going to get the zagg screen protector when they release it for our phone.

As for the OP, I don't carry my phone on a belt clip, so I don't really have an answer. Search amazon for "xt1080m case" and I think you'll find a few that may work for you.

The only kickstand case I have seen is the Verizon case/holster. The Verizon case is not a full wrap around.
I went with the Incipio Dual Pro and a generic horizontal leather holster through Amazon. I also use the Skinomi screen protector.
I miss my kickstand on the HTC Thunderbolt, but what I have now works for me.
I would like to see Trident Case put out a kickstand case.

Here is my recommendation on the case.... Don't bother, but rather skin it instead. The droid maxx features Gorrilla Glass 3 and Kevlar backing for design. So the plastic feeling is not there at all. Consider getting the Skinomi set with the Carbon Fiber skin.
Amazon.com: Skinomi® TechSkin - Motorola DROID MAXX Screen Protector Ultra Clear Shield + Black Carbon Fiber Full Body Protective Skin + Lifetime Warranty: Cell Phones & Accessories
This is of course for those that aren't klutz's. Obviously it won't have the same protection power as an otterbox, but it will keep it scratch free and relatively drop free depending on how far it drops. The Maxx is already a big phone as it is, and this will maintain the dimensions of the phone while protecting it.Motorola Droid Maxx

I've read too many complaints on the reviews on Verizon's webstore about the edge to edge glass making the phone more susceptible to breakage. In my line of work, I need a rugged phone, and the next best thing is a great phone made rugged by its case.

I just use the Verizon bumper "case." It provides edge protection & just enough of a raised ridge around the screen to keep it from landing screen-first on the pavement.
It's done well in my unscientific, inadvertent drop tests, and it still lets the carbon/Kevlar back show through.

I went and played with a MAXX at the Verizon store. I noticed just a little bit of lag from time to time, BUT, the in store phone did not have a network connection and as soon as I turned on the Wi-Fi it started a system update. The lag may have been due to that (it was just downloading while I was there, not installing), but even that hint of lag turns me off. I rooted my RAZR MAX and installed lag fix (trim) and have to weekly format the data cache and delete all Chrome data from app manager just to keep the phone usable. That little bit of lag on the MAXX makes me just want to wait for the next generation phone.

This case looks interesting also: Amazon.com: Incipio MT-298 DualPRO for the Motorola DROID Maxx - Black/Black - Carrying Case - Retail Packaging - Black/Black: Cell Phones & Accessories
Silicone core, so no hard plastic to mar the phone's finish. The only problem is no belt clip to cover the screen (and no kickstand...). Question- with the screen exposed and if put in a pocket, would touchless controls of the MAXX be activated? I don't want to have a problem of constantly changing settings on my phone or dialing numbers while it's in my pocket. Or, does that not work the way I think it works (does it have to be voice initiated every time?)

Re: Droid MAXX: Cases
It has to be voice activated all of the time. The active display swipe feature is also supposed to be disabled when the phone's proximity sensor determines that it's in your pocket.
I've used that case. It's not bad, but if think it made the phone too heavy. It's already heavy enough. It's better than the otterbox commuter for that, but not much.

Re: Droid MAXX: Cases
I have the otterbox commuter and like it. No hard plastic touches the phone. Supposedly has a life time warranty but have never had to test it out on any of the otterbox cases I have used. Also the commuter is less bulky than the defender and has very good protection when combined with a screen protector.
