The best Moto E (2020) cases and covers

If you’re a fan of the original 2014 Moto E or the second-generation — released back in 2015 — you’ll be excited to see that the latest model has just landed. With its 6.2-inch screen, modern design, and budget-conscious price, the Moto E (2020) is an excellent buy for under $200.

If you’ve managed to get your hands on this newly-released phone, you’ll want to protect your investment. The right case or cover keeps your phone protected against bumps, drops, and scratches — and ideally doesn’t look too shabby, either. Although it’s still relatively new to the market, there are already some great cases available for the latest Moto E. Whether you prefer sleek carbon fiber cases, leather wallets, or floral designs, we’ve gathered together some of the best cases around right now.

Dzxouui Shockproof Soft TPU Case

Sleek, slim, and with a carbon fiber-style finish, this shockproof TPU case ticks all the boxes to keep your phone protected. The soft material provides superior shock absorption for drops, with raised edges to protect your phone’s screen. Access to all the Moto E’s buttons and ports is easy, thanks to precise cutouts. We’d opt for the dark metallic blue version, but this case also comes in black.

If you’re always chucking your phone in your bag, a wallet case is ideal, as you won’t need a separate screen protector. This faux leather case not only feels surprisingly soft, but it also comes in a vast array of designs, including solid black, purple, or rose gold, plus patterns like turquoise floral or checkered in classic beige or brown. With three handy card slots and space to store your ID and cash, this case incorporates RFID-blocking technology, protecting your cards from theft. It’s slim and lightweight, yet provides all-around protection for your phone — and folds out into a handy kickstand for hands-free Netflix sessions or video calls.

This dual-layer case from Dahkoiz gives you all the protection of a hard polycarbonate shell with a TPU rubberized inner. Its TPU bumper uses air spring technology to absorb shock for serious drop protection, while the anti-slip football pattern finish gives excellent grip. Raised lips around the screen and camera add an additional level of protection for drops and bumps, and tactile button covers keep your phone’s buttons protected while still giving that satisfying click when pressed. For serious protection, this is the case we’d go for. It comes in three colors: All black, black with blue bumpers, or black with green bumpers.

Fotosuncy Floral Armor Case

Fotosuncy’s Floral Armor Case is a great choice if you’re looking for an attractive case that doesn’t skimp on protection. This slim, lightweight case offers dual-layer protection, with a hard polycarbonate and acrylic backplate and a soft, flexible TPU bumper that keeps your phone safe from drops and bumps. There’s a 2mm raised lip around the screen and camera to guard against scratches and knocks, plus hard TPU button covers.

Show off the design of the new Moto E with a clear bumper case, like this one from Aeksa. This hybrid case features a transparent polycarbonate back panel and soft TPU bumper for shockproof drop protection. With raised lips around the front and camera, precise cutouts for all your phone’s buttons and ports, and anti-slip side grips, this is one of the best Moto E cases you can pick up for $10. Choose between a black and green speckled design (pictured) or a minimalist black and white speckled version.

The best iPhone 15 Plus cases in 2024: 15 best ones right now
A person holding the Apple iPhone 15 Plus.

Apple's iPhone 15 Plus is here, and it packs a big punch. With the iPhone 15 Plus, you have a large, crystal-clear 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with the Dynamic Island, the A16 Bionic chip for fast performance with iOS 17, and a powerful dual-camera setup with 48MP main and 12MP ultrawide lenses. And of course, you can charge it up with USB-C, as Apple has finally ditched Lightning with the iPhone 15 lineup.

However, the iPhone 15 Plus still starts at a hefty $899 for the base model, which is a hefty chunk of change. You'll definitely want to protect your investment, and one of the easiest ways to do so is with a good case (and a screen protector helps out too!). Here are some of the best iPhone 15 Plus cases you can buy right now.

The best iPhone 15 cases in 2024: our 20 favorites
New cases for the iPhone 15.

The iPhone 16 may be only a few months away now, but Apple's iPhone 15 is still a great buy. It may even turn out to be a rare gem in the churn of year-over-year upgrades. This time around, Apple packed in some significant improvements compared to its 2022 predecessor, including the new 48-megapixel sensor and new 2x optical zoom, making for one of the biggest camera upgrades to come to a standard model since the iPhone 11 adopted the dual-lens camera design in 2019.

However, just because the iPhone 15 is the most affordable pick in Apple's new lineup doesn't mean you shouldn't consider adding some protection. Apple's Ceramic Shield glass is durable, but it's not indestructible, and it's only on the front display — the back of the phone is made from normal glass that will shatter or crack quite easily if you drop your iPhone, as well as collect scratches from the bumps and scrapes of everyday life. The good news is that the popularity of the iPhone means you'll never be faced with a shortage of choices for the best and most stylish protection for your device. In fact, there are so many different companies making iPhone cases that it can be overwhelming, so we've rounded up a few of the best picks below, from clear and classy cases that let the iPhone's colorful back shine through to rugged tactical cases that will serve you well through life's most extreme adventures.
