    Is there a waterproof case for the Droid Maxx? I've searched Google with no luck. Searched here and nothing also. I'm not looking for a dry bag but a form fitting case similar to the an otter box, etc.

    You want something you can dunk in water, I'm assuming, not something highly resistant to rain?

    No. I want a weather proof case. Not a bag.

    I believe, if you re-read what I asked, that I asked if a weather-resistant case was what you were looking for.

    There's a difference between something you can drop overboard in shallow water, like the Lifeproof cases, and something like (not that they currently offer one for your phone) the Kraken A.M.S. cases that are rated for:
    So I was wondering what your needs for the case were. If you have less-stringent needs than the Lifeproof cases then it's going to be easier to find one that meets your needs.

    I need to protect my phone while riding my motorcycle. Accidental drops and in case I get caught in the rain.

    Okay. Then a military-rated drop spec would be required.

    Lol! I needed good signal not alot of features (I'm not saying the s5 is a bad phone). I had a s3 loved it! I wanted a s4. But I knew Motorola has some of, if not the best phone signal of cell phones. Been researching the Turbo, 3900mah battery and 64gb is right up my alley!

    I know you're always on the road so that's understandable. The radio on the S5 has been great for me, but I know a few still had issues. (But it's usually because they live in fringe area where every phone gives them a problem) How has the Maxxs' signal been compared to your S3?
