Default Cases cases cases...

I emailed Seidio and told them they need to make a CONVERT case. Its basically the protection of the defender, but the ability to remove a layer and still have a Incipio Feather on without going caseless. I won't hold my breath.

Gone are the days of leather customization on vajacases.com.

Anyone out there have a great pocket pouch they'd recommend? Or a holster for the Incipio Feather?

Really wish the accessory selection was better. Guess its due to droid maxx only being on one carrier mostly.

I love the VZW bumper. It protects the screen and corners from drops, but still shows the carbon fiber back.

Holsters and pockets? I leave those at home with my pocket protector..

I have the Griffin Reveal and I like it. It shows off the back as well. It's kinda like a rubber bumper with a clear TPU back.

Completely Agreed with your thoughts...its really very hard one to find suitable accessories for the Maxx as the reason is..it is mostly on single carrier...and I feel that its a big problem for every Maxx user

I know right. The defender is so much more improved than the gnex one. Less rubbery so less dust. Also doesn't peel away. And love the kick stand.

Here's a post about all of my cases.

Green Trident Cyclops
Very nice screen protector. Works well with pre installed verizon anti glare protector. Buttons work well. Very hard to remove though. Covers ports well. Doesn't feel as bulky as otterbox commuter. Bottom lip isn't tapered as much as the defender so hitting home recent or back isn't as easy.

Red Qmadix S Series
Good all around coverage. Side Buttons press easily but not the best. Easy to install and remove. No display protection. No port coverage.

Cyan / neon blue Incipio Feather
Favorite case. Few finger prints. No color peeling. Doesn't protect top display bezel though. Easiest to install and remove. Great for pockets. I use this case I the most. Cleans up with dish soap.

Black Otterbox Defender
Awesome kickstand belt clip. Improved design from earlier models. Much stronger and hasn't broken. No problems with screen protector coming off but doesn't work as well with the pre installed. Have to press slightly harder. Still wouldn't chance using this with naked display. Have had dust or sand get between and scratch display. Happy with holster doesn't block any ports.

Can't really comment on durability with the Trident or Qmadix as these two were Christmas gifts. I did notice the Qmadix had a scratch but it's solid not painted so not noticeable.

Ideally my case would be a Seidio Convert (or whatever they call them these days). But they don't exist. Or a Vaja case. But this is a carrier specific device so we won't see a variety like the moto X or gs4.

Lastly none of these cases have caused any damage to the phone. I've seen many people with cases develop wear lines especially with the Griffin cases.

Hope this finds you well and enjoying your device!

I have the otterbox commuter case and I love it. Much slimmer than ones I've had with other phones but it does a wonderful job of protecting the phone. Doesn't collect much dust either

i bought a bumper with grey accents and just painted it red with a permanent marker. It looks so much better than the stock one with red
