    Does the Droid Maxx have pocket detection? Tried gravity screen off and it works for a while then stops working.

    If you use Tasker, the following profile does what you want ...

    Profile: tlaPocket
    State: Proximity Sensor
    Enter: Anon
    A1: Variable Set [ Name:%POCKET To:%DTOUT Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    A2: Display Timeout [ Secs:7 Mins:0 Hours:0 ]
    Exit: Anon
    A1: Display Timeout [ Secs:%POCKET Mins:0 Hours:0 ]

    It will timeout after 7 sec when out in your pocket and return the timeout to the previous setting when removed from your pocket.
