Moto’s latest budget phone, the E4, has just hit the market — offering respectable hardware for a price tag that’s easy on the wallet. Starting at just $130, we called it one of the best smartphone values out there. If you’ve decided to spring for one, you’ll naturally want to pick up a case — or a few — with all the money saved.

We’ve rounded up the best options currently on the market, from ultra-slim, form-fitting designs to rugged, dual-layer cases built to take on the world. And if it’s an E4 Plus case you’re after, we have a guide for that too. Either way, the Moto E4 is a very new device, which means that more accessories are being released all the time — and we’ll update this list accordingly as new products emerge.

Incipio NGP Advanced ($20)

If you’re looking for a somewhat rugged case that can take a bounce but won’t add too much bulk, Incipio’s NGP Advanced case may fit the bill. The NGP Advanced offers a textured exterior and raised, easy-to-locate buttons, along with a honeycomb pattern on the inside for increased flexibility and shock dispersion. Incipio sells these cases for a multitude of phones, including the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8. For the Moto E4, the NGP Advanced is available in either black or plum. It’s not out yet, but the company’s website lists it as “coming soon.”


J&D Shock Resistant Slim TPU Case ($8)

J&D’s TPU Slim case won’t offer much in the way of drop protection, but it is one of the sleeker options currently available for the E4. The case is multi-textured — on the sides and edges, it sports a glossy, rubbery finish, whereas the back has more of a matte feel for added grip. It does, however, leave a fair bit of the device exposed, with cutouts for the volume and power keys. Cases like these are popular with users who don’t want to sacrifice the shape and style of their phone with a thick, bulky case — just don’t expect it to take a beating.

NageBee’s tough Defender comprises two parts — a soft, silicone inner layer that is built to absorb impacts, and an outer shell made of harder plastic. The cushioning material is exposed on the corners of the case for enhanced drop protection, and also shields the buttons, which have been labeled for your convenience — a nice touch for an inexpensive case. The Defender comes with a seven-day money back guarantee, no questions asked, as well as a 30-day warranty should it fail to stand up to the elements. It is available in black and rose gold.

Wellci Carbon Fiber Case ($8)

Much like Incipio’s NGP Advanced, Wellci’s Carbon Fiber case strikes a balance between rugged protection and a slim profile. In terms of design, it’s made of a flexible material with a carbon fiber effect on the back at the top and bottom. There’s a grooved diamond pattern on the interior, and the case comes in navy, black, gray, and red. Wellci says it comes with a 60-day warranty, and that it will honor any defective products with a replacement or refund during that time.


Ucc Impact Protection Case ($8)

Ucc’s Impact Protection case features a rugged-looking exterior, with a grippy texture along the sides and increased protection around the corners. It also offers the added benefit of a kickstand, ideal for long trips. The case comes in two styles — all black, and another with rose gold accents. There aren’t a ton of options for cases for the Moto E4 just yet, but this one is a top contender if you’re after something that can weather a fair bit of abuse.

The best Nokia 5.4 cases and covers
Nokia 5 4 Back

The Nokia 5.4 may be a budget smartphone, but it looks more appealing than its price would indicate. With a 6.39-inch edge-to-edge display and a plastic rear that looks very sleek in the Polar Night color, its design gives the impression of costing more than it really does. However, even if its plastic rear should make it a bit more durable than the average glass-based phone, you'll need a case if you want it to remain intact for as long as you use it.

That's why we've put together this list of the best Nokia 5.4 cases you can buy right now. It covers everything from slimline transparent cases to wallet cases and more rugged, heavy-duty covers, with options to suit all tastes and budgets.

Nokia 5.4 vs. Motorola Moto G Power (2021): Budget battleground
Nokia 5.4 vs. Motorola Moto G Power

Budget smartphones have really come into their own over the past few years, with manufacturers honing the art of offering great features at affordable prices. The Nokia 5.4 is the latest in a long line of such devices, boasting such selling points as a quad-lens rear camera, 4,000mAh battery, a 6.39-inch display, as well as a modest $249 price tag. However, while it looks good enough at first glance, it certainly has plenty of competition to fend off, with the Moto G Power (2021) being arguably the best sub-$200 smartphones you can buy today.

With an even bigger 5,000mAh battery and a pretty 6.6-inch display, the Moto G Power has plenty to worry the Nokia 5.4 and its fans. But how exactly does each phone weigh up against the other? We answer this question with a head-to-head comparison. This should help you decide which is the best budget Android phone for you.

The best OnePlus 8 Pro cases to keep your phone beautiful
oneplus 8 pro review browser

The OnePlus 8 Pro is still one of the best OnePlus phones you can get, with the powerful Snapdragon 865, a quad-lens camera, and a killer matte glass body. OnePlus originally showed us what a cut-price phone with flagship specs could do, and now it's showing us what it can do with a full-on flagship price -- and it's pretty amazing.

But with official prices starting at $900, it's clear this is not a phone you're going to use and abuse. You probably want your shiny new OnePlus 8 Pro to last at least two years -- and hopefully, even longer. While nothing can ensure your phone lasts as long as you hope, a good protective case can seriously improve its chances. Here are some of the best OnePlus 8 Pro cases available right now.
