Possibly behind the X only because it's being launched across all carriers, but judging by forum content, the Maxx is the star of the bunch in VZW's lineup. Ultra and Mini forums are dead.

I am a little disappointed that there is so little available for the phone for accessories - looks like we may have bought one of the verizon orphan phones and the support will be behind the X.
It's less than a week old... There will be cases available, give it time.

I bought my Otterbox Defender for my Gnex from Verizon on launch day. It was one of 3 cases to choose from.

These companies get pre-release phones or specs to work with to have products available at launch. The lead times to get something designed, out the door, and on the shelf make that a necessity.

Given that these phones are never going to be hotter than these initial weeks after launch, an accessory not on the shelf right now is lost sales.

In fact, what's up with launch, anyway? Search for Droid Maxx on Google and the Razr keeps coming up. Confusing naming choice by Motorola / Verizon. And I can't even get it to come up on Amazon unless I filter "cell phones > Sort By Price."

Strangely enough the phone is a bit too thin for me, I wanted to feel a little more size when holding it. I picked up (*)Speck's case. Its black and adds a little raise to the back which keeps the camera off surfaces in the back and raises the front enough the screen doesn't touch any surface when set down. Also has rubber grip stripes on back and sides, so worked perfect for me.

Go onto Verizon's web site. Go to the accessories page. Say that you have a droid Maxx. You'll find the car dock there.

I like the bumper case. It shows the kevlar but also protects the edges in case I drop it. It's a bit thicker than I wish it were but its nice.

I have had the bumper case for three days and it seems like the best answer for my needs. It has a raised edge on the screen side that will protect the screen unless you drop it on a pointed rock. The back edge is about 1/4 inch and tapers in to the kevlar back that is exposed but plenty tough. It looks like it will work with a Qi wireless charger since the back is exposed but I will post more about that tomorrow after my Tylt Vu arrives. IMHO the bumper case is very easy to handle and minimalist. I don't like big, heavy and clumsy cases.

Thanks for the info guys. I just went online and ordered the Griffin car dock as well as the bumper case. Hope to report back later in the week once it arrives.

Ordered an Incipio feather case, figured I'd give it a go. I'll spend a few days with it this week, then maybe go back to no case.

Not bad for what it is. If I'm going to use a case, gotta be thin and minimal. The fit around the power button and volume rocker though... not totally ideal.

I did, wasn't going to put a case on it but this was minimalist and protects the edges and is raised a little bit on the front edges to protect the screen. Also it looks like it will work with a wireless charger. Mine comes today so we will see.

As much as I like the functionality of my bumper case, I find it in the way of the capacitive buttons. Specifically the back and recent app buttons. I find myself having a hard time hitting the back button sometimes and I hit the recent app button often when I don't mean to. I may try going naked for a day.

I have the bumper. Access to the capacitive buttons doesn't bother me, but the stiffness of the power button is annoying. If I weren't on an Edge-up plan, or whatever it's called, I'd probably streak it naked.

I bought the Griffin case from my Verizon store. I chose the white edged case but it came in two other colors I believe. Anyway this case has silicone "bumpers" around all the sides and a clear plastic back that lets you see the phones back through it. Yesterday I decided to experiment. I cut out a piece of white paper to fit into the inside of the cover. The result is an all white phone cover. The possibilities are endless. I can cut out paper in any color or pattern I want or even personalize it by running it first though my printer and then cutting it out. I am going to have some fun with this!

Got me a red stripe bumper cover and a Griffin car dock. The bumper cover does not work with the car dock, it won't let the phone plug all the way in. I think I'll have to get some sort of flexible silicone skin so that I can slip it in and out to use the car dock. I, too, I am a bit disappointed in the stiffness of the button covers of the bumper cover. I'm not sure why they didn't use some sort of flexible silicone material to keep the feel of the buttons more natural. The car dock does not have a hole for the camera, so you'll have to drill one out carefully instead. I thought about putting some vent holes in the back of the car dock, but since the phone does not fit flush against it, I think I'll be okay without them.

I got the red bumper as well, but I think I'm going to take it back. It doesn't seem like it would, but it just makes the phone feel bulky. It went from barely being able to feel the naked phone in my pocket to feeling like I was trying to slip a small brick into my jeans. I ended up taking the bumper off after a day and it's just been sitting on my desk ever since.


I saw Diztronic has a TPU case for the Maxx now, and I loved their cases for the Galaxy Nexus and my wife's Galaxy S3, so I ordered one without a second thought.

I have the same. As a consultant, I bring it with me on the road and I've I used it in dozens of rental cars over the past few years. It's awesome.

I got the same bumper from Verizon and really like it. The black one with the red stripe..It doesn't cover the whole phone which is what I was looking for.... Plus I got a 25% discount...... And oh yeah .... the Maxx is one hell of a phone...... I am
glad I decided on the Maxx over the Moto X !!!!!!

I got my Diztronic TPU case over the weekend, and I love it!
It is nice and thin you would expect with a TPU case, but it slips on and off easily. The only version they have now is matte black on the sides and back, and has a gloss black "frame" around the screen opening. Overall, it looks very good, and they're only about $10. My only complaint is that it has covered buttons instead of cutouts. The button covers work, but I think pressing the buttons might be easier if they just left cutouts like they have on their previous cases.

Unhappy Fake Otterbox from Verizon??

I got my Maxx this weekend and the Verizon store sold me the Commuter Otterbox case at the same time.

I didn't get a screen cover. I emailed Otterbox and they stated the Maxx commuter case isn't available yet and mine is a counterfeit .

I purchased it straight from the Verizon store.

Does anyone else know if this could happen?? Is the commuter case available yet???

I've seen it at several at Verizon stores, from what I recall. Some kind of otterbox case, anyway.I doubt Verizon is bootlegging thousands of cases.

When I bought my phone, they had the Defender case, but not the Commuter. But that was two weeks ago. It looked like it was in standard Otterbox packaging.

I'd return it/exchange it to the store.

It's entirely possible the guy at otterbox confused the droid maxx for the droid RAZR maxx HD or something. I only see the defender case available for the RAZR maxx HD...

I sent Otterbox pictures of my case. They understand what phone I have.
After reviewing the pics they emailed me that it was a counterfeit case.

The Otterbox web site states it isn't available yet.

I resubmitted the pics to the Otterbox fraud web page on their request.

I can't believe Verizon and Otterbox aren't on the same page with this.

I doubt verizon would purposefully have counterfeit cases made. Given the timing of these cases with respect to the launch of the phone, Verizon would have had to allow access to Otterbox to design the case. Counterfeiters woule be unlikely to work through these channels let alone have such access. If it somehow is counterfeit, I'd expect to see a cease and desist very soon. It is indeed baffling, but I'd bet on it being a miscommunication of some sort more than anything else. Did you happen to send them links to it on VZW's page?

I grabbed my maxx on launch day at a vzw corporate store and there were Otterbox defenders in Stock but no commuters. I went back today and was able to grab a black commuter case. What's weird is that the Otterbox website doesn't list this case in black I have to believe that vzw wouldn't be stocking and selling counterfeit merchandise so there has to be some confusion about availability internally at Otterbox...

Be at peace, bro. From what I researched, like most all of the Droid line of late, since the Razr, the Maxx and kin come with nanocoating.

Obviously, the CSR's at Otter Box are clueless. The black Commuter for the Maxx is real and I'm going to pick one up tonight. I'll let you all know how it looks--doesn't the Otter packaging have a hologram or something?

Yeah, I wouldn't put too much faith in that. My dad lost a Droid Razr M and I lost a Droid Razr HD Maxx to water. My Maxx was dropping into water and was under no more than 10 seconds. I dried it out for a few days and it mostly works, but it's stuck in landscape mode, the GPS doesn't work, and there are other odd things that happen.

So, maybe nano-coating saved it from being a total loss, but still not much use. These phones are definitely not like the Sony phones that are meant to be waterproof.

I just looked at the packaging my commuter came in. It has Motorola Mobility/M4DE/Built for Droid branding and disclaimers printed directly on the packaging, which leads me to think they went directly from the factory to Vzw which is why the Otterbox reps aren't aware they exist yet. Just a guess...
Edit: There is also a hologram if that helps assure anyone

My otterbox Commuter box has the hologram on the box. Bought at VZW this past weekend.

I didn't know Incipio had the DualPro out for the Maxx already. Got one today at VZW and I like it much better than the Bumper.

BTW the Incipio DualPro is the same concept as the OtterBox Commuter series, but it's less industrial-looking and doesn't include a separate screen protector. I'll post pic's tomorrow if anyone wants to see it.

Did anyone get a screen protector with their Droid Maxx Otterbox commuter? I didn't.

Both Otterbox and Verizon web sites advertise this exact part # as including an adhesive screen guard. I went to a 2nd verizon store thinking that I had gotten a customer return. Still no screen guard on their instock commuter cases.

I called Otterbox and like others they said the Droid Maxx commuter case isn't made yet. They said they can't send me parts for a case that doesn't exist.

It was the fact it was missing a screen guard that started my whole adventure of being told my certified Otterbox case from Verizon with a halogram was a fake Otterbox by the Otterbox company.

I just returned my bumper case. Going naked is too nice.
