I love it. I needed a case with a kickstand. The shell makes the phone more "grippy" probably does not protect as good as the Otterbox. I wanted a seidio case but they have not made one as of yet. However if seidio makes one for the Maxx I wonder if it will be hard to remove? If you use the navigation mount the shell will have to be removed
With the fact that it is one of the few cases available, choices are pretty limited. With that being said I really like it. It adds just enough to make it more comfortable to handle without being bulky. I have ran one of these on my OG Droid, DX, Bionic, Gnex and OG RAZR. The only one I didn't like was the RAZR version. Didn't feel good in the hand.
