Color us impressed with the great value of the Moto X Style Pure Edition. This smartphone offers an impressive set of specs for the price, along with the welcome ability to customize its look using Moto Maker. The smartphone is also water-resistant, even if it’s not built to withstand a fall. If you have butterfingers, then you might want to take some additional steps to protect your device. These are the best Moto X Style cases and covers we’ve found so far.

I-Blason Armorbox Dual Layer Case ($18+)

i-Blason Armorbox

If your main reason for purchasing a case is to give your Moto X Pure Edition as much protection as possible, I-Blason’s Armorbox case will get the job done. It provides drop, shock, and scratch protection thanks to its hard, polycarbonate shell, and the front cover comes equipped with a built-in screen protector, which does away with the need to seek out a suitable one on your own. This lightweight case also features a distinctive look that comes in either black or light blue variants, and retains easy access to your smartphone’s buttons, ports, sensors, speakers, and camera. You’ll be able to use your phone with ease without having to worry about damaging it.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Series Hybrid Case ($14+)

SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Series

Supcase’s offering is great for those who want more of a sporty design, but still need some decent protection for their phone. The Unicorn Beetle case is a snap-on accessory, which makes it easy to put on while allowing it to retain easy access to all your phone’s features. The thermoplastic polyurethane and polycarbonate materials used to make the case also provide a solid defense against unexpected drops, and the different color options — black-black, frost-black, and frost-blue —  will ensure that your phone and case still look great after impact.

Poetic Affinity Series [X-FORM] Case ($13)

POETIC Affinity Series [X-FORM]

If you want to maintain the original look of your Moto X Pure Edition, go with this Affinity case from Poetic. This translucent case is designed with added grip to help prevent accidental drops from occurring, but in the event that does happen, the case features a design meant to absorb and dissipate shock. The raised bezel also helps protect the front of your display. Protection isn’t the main goal of this particular case, though, as it’s intended to showcase the best assets of the Moto X Pure. Still, it delivers proper protection in the spots where it’s needed most.

Diztronic Full Matte Slim-Fit Case ($10)

Diztronic Full Matte Slim-Fit

What Diztronic’s case lacks in overall protection, it makes up for in size and weight. Coming in at less than 1 ounce and measuring a mere 1.6-millimeters thick, this matte TPU case is one of the more flexible cases around, but remains strong enough to provide excellent shock absorption and scratch resistance. Its “lay-on-the-table” design will also protect the front of your  Moto X Pure when placed face down, and thanks to the aforementioned flexibility, it’s incredibly easy to apply and remove. The cutouts in the case leave enough space for your ports, too, so that you won’t have to fight the design in order to plug in your headphones or charging cable. If you just need a cheap, simple case, Diztronic is there for you.

Pleson Crystal Clear Case ($8)

PLESON Crystal Clear Case

You’re getting lightweight and affordable protection that’s also smudge-resistant when you opt for one of Pleson’s crystal-clear cases. Aside from offering basic protection, these cases are transparent and easy to use. The dotted texture ensures it not only works to prevent smudges, but protects against watermarks and unwanted bubbles that might form on the back of the case. As far as damage protection goes, it’s shock-absorbent, features a raised edge to protect your display, and is designed to provide you with more grip on your phone. Covers and cutouts also keep the buttons out of danger and the camera safe from scratches. The transparent design also means that you’ll retain your phone’s original look, but then again, the Moto X Pure Edition was never unappealing to begin with.
