Got yourself a new Moto X (2nd gen)? You sure don’t want any harm to come to it. The best way to protect your investment is by purchasing a good case that will keep it safe. There is a long list of available cases, from a plethora of manufacturers, so how do you know which one is the right one.
Many factors come into play when choosing a good case, so we thought a curated list of our favorite Moto X cases was called for. Want to get yourself a good phone protector? Take a look at the list below. There is something for everyone.
Incipio NGP Carrying Case
Your Moto X is pretty resistant, so you may not want to make it bulkier with a super strong case. Regardless, it’s always good to have a thin case for protection against scratches and light drops. Incipio makes great thin cases, and my favorite for the 2nd generation Moto X is the NGP Carrying Case.
It’s made of Flex2O TPU polymer (aka plastic), and doesn’t add much thickness to the Moto X, which is already not the thinnest phone around.
Case-Mate Hula Case for Moto X
I always recommend a good bumper case, as these usually keep the phone well protected against surfaces and some drops. In addition, bumper cases tend to keep the keep the phone’s characteristics and good looks visible, instead of completely covering them. The Hula Case is a great option for those who really like the way the Moto X, yet want to keep it safe.
Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit TPU Case
Those who want to add a little style and Android fanboyism to their cases have very few options. If I had to choose, I would go with the Cruzerlite Bugdroid cases. These are made of TPU material and keep the phone relatively safe. What makes these cool, though, is the Android-themed design in the back.
You want true protection for your Moto X? There is no way to go wrong with the Otterbox Defender series. Otterbox is famous for its strong cases and great designs, even if they add quite a bit of bulk to your smartphone. You can be almost sure your phone will be safe, though. This case is made of multiple layers (thick ones, at that) and it even has a protective film for the screen.
Poetic FlipBook case
I like to get a flip book style case in these roundups, and Poetic is very good at making those. Their FlibBook series is especially cool, with interesting colors and a sleek design that makes your phone look like a little notebook. It will also keep your phone pretty safe, as ever side will be covered.
Exact Billfold Series
The Poetic Flibook looks great, but it can be a bit too colorful and intricate. If you are looking for something more serious, sleek and classy, I like the Exact Billfold Series wallet cases. These also work as a stand for watching movies, and it has a couple slots for cards and IDs. Pretty neat, and not expensive at all.
