It can be done, even though I stupidly upgraded to 4,4?

And if so, can you point me in the right direction please?

I would take the Droid MAXX anytime against G2 or M7. Cant compare the MAXX, an industrial piece of gagdet against some cheap ****.

The Maxx isn't about the specs... They're good enough. The Maxx is about the cool Motorola exclusive features like Touchless Controls, Trusted Bluetooth Devices, Active Notifications.

Last night I told my phone to set an alarm. I was across the room 8 feet away, the phone was screen off and I never had to touch it. There's no other phone you can do that with right now.
Wiping battery stats has the same influence over battery life as waving a dead chicken over your phone does; none, per Google.
If your sig takes up more screen real estate than most of your posts, maybe you should trim it a bit...

I have both the Maxx and G2. I'd get the G2 over the Maxx but with the G3 out, that should also be considered. You can't go wrong with either the Maxx or G2.The Maxx is for work and the G2 is personal. I only use the Maxx for work email when I'm home and tethering when I travel and get 3 days per charge when I'm not traveling. I day per charge when I do travel. My G2 gets 2 days per charge with light to moderate use and more widgets. I like the skin on the G2 and extra features it has. My previous personal phone was a SGS3 and my previous work phone was a SGS4. I've not regretted replacing either.

Had the g2, and the Maxx is better in every way aside from the camera. Obviously my opinion, but the vanilla experience with gravity box is just awesome. I get signal in places no other phone I've ever had would. Plus, my g2 had weird quirks and inconsistencies. This Maxx is just really usable, and I know for sure I won't spend hours tweaking trying to get to near stock android because I'm already there.
