The best Moto G7 Play cases and covers

The Motorola G7 Play is one of the best budget smartphones available. Just because it’s more affordable than the high-end competition doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be protecting your phone, though. A quality phone case can keep your G7 safe from drops, dings, and other daily hazards.

Whether you prefer a hard case, skin, holster, or anything in between, we have the scoop on the best Moto G7 Play cases right here.

Osophter Clear Case

While costing less than $200, the Motorola G7 Play is still a very appealing phone to stare at. To still be able to appreciate the hardware design of the phone while keeping it safeguarded, use a clear TPU case from Osophter. Made with shatterproof TPU and hard polycarbonate, this case will do the trick if you want scratch and drop protection, and the reinforced corners and raised edges certainly add to that. Like a majority of clear cases, however, this may yellow and oxidize over time. At this price, though, that’s acceptable.

OtterBox Commuter Lite Case

With a reputation of making some of the most tough and rugged covers in the industry, the OtterBox Commuter Lite is ideal for those who drop their phones all the time. While the case will add some heft to the G7 Play, the synthetic rubber and polycarbonate shell will keep your phone safe and secure. There’s an ample amount of space around the ports of the phone, so you shouldn’t run into any compatibility issues, even though the case is bulky. Included with the price tag is OtterBox’s lifetime warranty, making the Commuter Lite well worth the investment.

Slinco Flexible TPU Case

Motorola usually includes a soft TPU case in the box with their smartphones, but not with the G7 Play. For the next best thing, the Slinco case will keep your phone protected without breaking the bank. Available in black and navy, the flexible TPU case gives the G7 Play some much needed grip on the sides and back. There’s a cutout for the camera and the signature Motorola fingerprint sensor, so you’ll still be able to rest your finger on it to unlock your phone. At a low price, the Slinco case is a viable option for those looking for something not too bulky but still protected.

Dretal Slim Carbon Fiber-style Case

Dretal’s carbon fiber-style case is a great option if you’re looking to add a little sci-fi style to your phone. In terms of protection, you’ll find slightly more than you would with a standard clear gel case. The TPU used in this case is slightly stiffer, and comes with more rigid edges to provide stronger resistance to bumps and drops. Each of the four corners is protected with an airbag system, and the raised edges mean your display and camera are elevated away from potentially hazardous surfaces. Despite that additional protection, it’s still a very slim case, so you’ll have no problem slipping it in and out of a pocket.

Head Case Designs Carina Nebula Case

Want a case that’ll really grab some attention? Head Case Designs offers a huge range of protective cases with eye-catching designs. This Carina Nebula design is part of a Head Case Designs’ space-themed series, but there are loads of other designs to consider too. It’s made from hard polycarbonate, and won’t be as good at absorbing impacts as softer TPU. However, it’s tough and durable, and should still do a good job of protecting your phone. It’s not going to be as protective as other cases, but Head Case Designs’ slim cases are still a good choice if you want to turn heads when you pull your phone out.

Ghostek Covert3 Case

Ghostek is well-known for making some extremely protective cases with water-resistance, and while the Covert3 doesn’t come with that feature, it still protects your phone very well. It’s the latest in Ghostek’s Covert series, which aims to add protection without adding additional bulk to thin phones. It’s made from a TPU bumper with a hard polycarbonate backplate, so it comes with a great mix of hard and soft resistance for a series of hazards, and reinforces that protection with additional drop protection on the corners. A nonslip coating has been applied to the case, and it comes with raised edges for further protection. Ghostek is a brand you can trust, and this case is offered at a great price too.

NagaBee Camo Holster Drop Case

If you’re after heavy-duty protection, then you’re probably most interested in this case from NagaBee. It’s a dual-layer case, so it uses a soft TPU inner core backed up by a hard polycarbonate outer shell to provide strong protection against drops, scratches, and similar damage. The backplate also comes with a handy kickstand for watching videos, making it perfect for anyone on the go. It also comes with a hard holster that can be clipped onto a belt. The case slides in and out of the holster, offering a quick and easy way to keep your phone constantly available but still safely stowed away. While the camo styling may not be for everyone, this is a great way to keep your phone protected while in potentially hazardous areas.
