The Motorola Droid Turbo is one of the best phones you can pick up at Verizon right now. It has a stunning display, a long-lasting battery, and an impressive camera. However, while it’s water-resistant and Kevlar-coated, that doesn’t make it indestructible, and a decent case is still advisable to add a final protective layer. It can also add a touch of style to a design that’s less alluring than many of the other flagship smartphones on the market today. Here are some of the best Motorola Droid Turbo cases we think you should consider.
Thanks to the hard polycarbonate shell and shock absorbent TPE core, this cool Incipio case provides plenty of drop protection. The button covers are easy to find without looking and work well. The cut-outs are accurate, and the camera opening is beveled to prevent any problems with the flash washing out your pictures. The soft touch, matte finish adds a little grip and comfort, and it comes in a variety of different colors including black, cyan, and pink.
Anyone concerned about dropping or scratching up the Droid Turbo should check out this case from OtterBox. It offers the classic dual layer combo with a soft, snug, rubbery inner layer that includes button and port covers, with a tough outer shell. To give complete peace of mind, there’s a screen protector too. It is quite bulky, but the case fits extremely well, and it will guard against falls and bumps. It’s also not as big as the top of the line Defender Series. You can get it in black or a choice of color combos which contrast the inner and outer layers. The sides add grip, while the back is smooth, which is great for sliding in and out of pockets, but something to watch out for when you lay it on a flat surface.
Sometimes you just want a basic case that isn’t going to put too big a dent in your wallet. Cruzerlite specializes in making good TPU cases that feature the Android mascot and come in a wide variety of different colors. The cases are flexible, they have accurate cut-outs, and they’re slightly translucent. Like other versions, the Droid Turbo version has a futuristic circuitry design complete with an Android in the middle. There’s a slight lip round the front to prevent the screen from hitting the ground. It’s a good no-frills option for basic protection.
If you like the idea of a basic TPU case, but you’d prefer something plainer, then Diztronic has you covered. This thin, matte finish case comes in black, gray, or red. There’s a subtle logo on the side, but that’s it for details. The button covers are good, the openings are all present and correct, and it’s comfortable to hold. It won’t provide rugged drop protection, but it adds a little grip, and it’s thin enough to work with wireless charging.
Here’s an interesting case from Motorola. This real, premium leather case looks and feels gorgeous. It also has a clever window that allows you to see basic information and take photos or calls on your Droid Turbo without opening the case. It offers basic all-round protection and the openings are exact. We think the dark brown leather is the best look, but you can also opt for black leather with gray suede or nylon. It’s worth noting that this case will arrive in pristine condition, not with the weathered look that you see in some of the pictures – that only comes with time.

The dimpled design inside this Tech21 case ensures that the force of any impact is dissipated and won’t carry through to crack or damage your Droid Turbo. The cut-outs are accurate and large enough that you won’t have trouble using the ports or the camera, but the button covers are a little stiff. The smokey aesthetic is subtle and translucent, so you can see the Motorola design beneath, plus there’s a slight orange tinge around the sides, which gives it a unique look. It’s comfortable to hold and it does add a little grip.
If you need something really tough for your Droid Turbo, then look no further than the aptly-named Lifeproof Fre. This case offers 360-degree protection. Drop it in water, and it’ll keep your phone safe to a depth of to two meters for up to an hour, plus it will keep dirt and dust out, and safeguard your phone from drop damage for falls from up to two meters. This is really rugged protection that meets the military 810G standard and scores an IP68 rating. However, this degree of protection isn’t achieved without compromise. The case definitely adds bulk, it muffles the sound significantly, and it impacts on usability, specifically the soft-touch buttons beneath the screen.
This translucent case is a good choice if you want to be able to see your Motorola Droid Turbo. There’s a hard, clear back panel, and a malleable bumper that sits inside to absorb any impact shock. The button covers are good, the cut-outs are generous, and it’s a pretty slim option. The downside with this case is the fact that the outer shell is really smooth, slippery, and prone to picking up fingerprints and scratches. There is a tiny lip on the front to protect the screen, but this definitely isn’t a rugged case.
The blocky aesthetic of PureGear’s DualTek case is not going to be to everyone’s tastes, but it is a practical design. The sides have rubbery, textured grips, the button covers work well, and the corners are reinforced to bear the brunt of an impact. The case fits perfectly and the big bezel on the front protects the screen. The openings are a little snug, so some audio jacks might not fit, and you may experience problems with flash photography as the light is prone to bouncing back off the camera cut-out.
Our final case has something that none of the other Droid Turbo cases on the list do – a kickstand. It can be handy to be able to prop up your phone to watch a movie or read hands-free. It’s held in place magnetically, so it doesn’t pop out uninvited. It’s also the only real detail to speak of with the Seidio logo and a metallic, silver finish. The case itself is easy to fit because it comes in two parts and it has a soft-touch, matte finish in black, blue, or red. The cut-outs are generous, so you get full, unfettered access to buttons, ports, and the camera.
That’s all the Motorola Droid Turbo cases we have for you right now.
