Color us impressed with the great value of the Moto X Style Pure Edition. This smartphone offers an impressive set of specs for the price, along with the welcome ability to customize its look using Moto Maker. The smartphone is also water-resistant, even if it’s not built to withstand a fall. If you have butterfingers, then you might want to take some additional steps to protect your device. These are the best Moto X Style cases and covers we’ve found so far.
If you got a taste for choosing your own design, then the Octane case from Incipio could tempt you. Pick a light or dark translucent back plate, and a colored bumper. The back plate is polycarbonate, and it lets your design shine through. The bumper is flexible and designed to dissipate shock impact to keep your Moto X Pure Edition in perfect condition. There’s a nice honeycomb pattern on the bumper that really adds grip, the cut-outs are accurate, and this case isn’t too bulky. If you want to go as thin as possible, check out the matte black Incipio Feather case.
For people who work outdoors, or anyone prone to fumbling their phone, this rugged Otterbox case offers some serious protection. The Defender Series is as tough as they come, offering drop protection and all-round coverage. There’s a rubber layer, a tough polycarbonate shell, and a built-in screen protector. Nothing is getting through to damage your Moto X Pure Edition if it’s wearing this case. The button covers work well, and they’re easy to use without looking. There are also port covers to keep dust and debris out. Furthermore, the case comes with a holster that you can attach to your belt. It’s bulky and only offered in black right now, but it will certainly keep your phone safe.
You’ll find this option from Case-Mate is a great pick if you want a transparent case that still offers good protection. It has a typical dual-material design, with a polycarbonate back panel and a flexible bumper designed to take the sting out of any bump or impact. The button covers are chrome, which provides a wee highlight in an otherwise understated case and makes them easy to find and press. The cut-outs are generous, and this is a pretty svelte case, so it’s a good choice if you want to make sure your chosen Moto X Pure design can still be shown off. Case-Mate is also offering the Tough Frame case, which is a bumper for $20.
This is a basic, flexible TPU case that’s easy to fit. It’s slightly translucent and comes in a choice of eight different colors. You’ll find accurate openings for the camera and ports, along with easy-to-press covers for the buttons. There’s also a slight lip around the screen to prevent it from touching surfaces when placed face down. It’s not going to offer rugged drop protection, but it should cope with average daily wear and tear. The case even features a circuit design with the Android mascot housed in the middle. It’s a decent case for the price.
If your budget is limited, then this slim cover will provide a little protection on the cheap. It’s made from flexible TPU — so it fits easy and will absorb a bit of shock — though, it’s too thin to rely on for real drop protection. You can get the basic case in four different colors, each with a matte-finish back and a glossy exterior. The button covers are okay, the openings are located in the right places, and there is even a beveled edge designed to protect your screen. You can also get the Wave variety, which features a glossy wave pattern that cuts into the matte back. Basically, it’s about what you’d expect for the money.
