    Frigging AWESOME! I'm able to call/text about 80-90% of the time. It's rare that I can't place a call unless I'm in a area that doesn't have cell coverage at all. I can even use the internet in places where I couldn't with the s3. I've talked to vzw reps and they say the s5 radio is better than the s3, but it's still not as good the Droid Maxx.

    Moto makes the best radios. The S3 was a powerful phone, but it just didn't cut it for the most part, and the radio wasn't up to snuff for marginal areas.

    I don't see any lifeproof-style cases that offer the Maxx the same level of water protection, and I even went to aliexpress to look. There are good cases for drop protection, and you can get one of those bicycle handlebar zippered pouches. A combination of the two would provide quite a bit of protection, but it wouldn't be the all-in-one solution you're looking for. Sorry. I dug around, found nothing that matched your requirements at once.

    Thanks, I found the same, was hoping I missed something. Guess I need to get the turbo, lifeproof makes a case for it. Lol

    Not only that, but the international version is called the Moto Maxx, so unless you're attached to the name Droid you can tell people you got a case for your Maxx and have them go nuts looking for them. ;)

    Motorola and incipio failed to finalize a few details so this case never made it into mass production phase, to my knowledge only a small amount made it out unofficially. I use to be an authorized reseller of incipio technologies. :)

    I read the reviews of it on Amazon and everyone says u can't use the buttons on the bottom of the phone, in particularly, the back button.

    Very true, but what they didn't tell everyone was that there's a small rubber gasket directly under the part of the front cover that goes around the microphone which made those buttons inaccessible, if the gasket is removed then all buttons function like normal. Who knows why they out that piece there because it served no purpose they entire phone is sealed up....

    Yes sir, the tempered glass covers the phone from corner to corner. Putting that gasket there basically raised the area around the buttons, I think they were just trying to make the front part of the case some flair and it's what screwed them....
