Top 5 Motorola Moto X Cases – March 2014

In this article, we’re recommending five recently released cases for the popular Moto X smartphone. Let’s get right into the selections.

5. Otterbox Commuter

The Commuter is one of my long-time favourites, offering a convincing amount of protection without sacrificing the slim look and feel of your phone. The Commuter covers all the bases, including silicone plugs to prevent dust ingress and a screen protector.

4. Piel Frama iMagnum

Our next case is this lovely leather case from Piel Frama. The iMagnum is a handmade case wrought from the finest materials over a 25 day period, with a design that’s perfectly suited to the Moto X. From selecting grade 1a leather from individual cows to using premium Gutermann wear-resistant thread and a custom vilédon lining, every case is the highest quality. A great choice for anyone seeking a classical look and feel.

3. Case-Mate Glimmer Case

This case is rather different in its sensibilities, offering a glitter-coated inlay that adds fun and sparkle to your Moto X. The Glimmer case is made from an impact-resistant plastic shell as well, providing moderate protection against drops and knocks. The case is described by the usually conservative Mobile Fun products team as “total bling”, and that perhaps says it all.

2. ROCK Elegant Side Flip Case

ROCK tend to produce cases with a more modern look, and that’s true for their latest Moto X case: the Elegant Side Flip. This case is available in some nice contemporary colours – yellow, orange and teal – and has a cool design. Instead of completely covering the back, the flip case just takes up a little bit of the side. It makes for a dramatically thinner case than all other folios I’ve seen, and looks cool too.

1. Case-Mate Barely There

We started this list with a classic, and we’ll end with one too. The Case-Mate Barely There is one of our best-selling Moto X cases. It’s popular because it is incredibly thin, yet its design still provides some protection. The case is attractive too, with a carbon fibre finish that adds grip. At an attractive price point, it’s hard not to recommend this case.
