The middle child in Lenovo’s smartphone lineup is the budget-conscious Moto G4. It’s a bargain, one packed with a 5.5-inch display, a decent processor, and a quality camera. The body may be plastic, but you’ll still want to wrap it up in order to keep it scuff and scratch-free. You also need protection for that big screen. Below are our favorite Moto G4 cases and covers. Because the Moto G4 Plus is exactly the same size as the Moto G4, however, these are also some of our favorite Moto G4 Plus cases.
Incipio Octane Case ($14+)
This case combines a colorful, flexible TPU bumper with a frosted, translucent, polycarbonate back. There are accurate cut-outs for the ports and camera. The bumper is textured for extra grip and has clearly defined button covers for the volume and power keys. It offers basic drop protection, but it’s not too bulky. The back is always frosted, but you can get the bumper in pink, black, or cyan.
Rearth Ringke Fusion Case ($8-9)
If you want the design of your Moto G4 or G4 Plus to shine through, then this is the case for you because the back is crystal clear. It’s another case that combines a flexible, TPU bumper with a tough polycarbonate back panel. The openings for the ports and camera are precise and there are button covers for the volume and power. It’s also tough, meeting military drop test standards, and it has a protective lip around the display. There’s a completely clear version or you can get the bumper portion in smoke black.
Diztronic Case ($10)
Here’s a very simple, malleable, TPU case with a soft-touch matte finish. There are precise cut-outs for the ports and camera and raised, tactile button covers for the volume and power buttons. It’s a very slim case, so protection is pretty basic, but the bezel does extend beyond the display to protect it if your Moto G4 should be placed face down. There’s a gloss Diztronic logo on the right spine, but this case is plain otherwise. It comes in black, gray, navy blue, red, or teal blue.
Innovaa Wallet Case ($10)
You’ll find space for a couple of cards and some cash in this wallet case. Your Moto G4 or G4 Plus is held snug and secure in a TPU shell and it’s wrapped in an outer layer of PU leather. There are accurate cut-outs for the camera, ports, buttons, and the speaker. The cover has a magnetic closure strap to keep it closed and it can be folded back to act as a landscape stand. You can get this wallet case in plain black, pink, mint, teal, or with a variety of different designs.
Bear Motion Case ($8)
As this case is so svelte, it won’t really provide drop protection, but it will guard against scratches and bumps and it also adds some grip, making you less likely to drop your phone in the first place. There are generous openings for the camera, ports, and buttons. The matte finish is a kind of sand texture and it comes in a variety of attractive colors including black, blue, gray, green, and red.
