10 best cases for your shiny new Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (Moto X Force)

One of the big selling points of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, also known as the Moto X Force, is the fact that it’s tough. Motorola’s ShatterShield technology ensures that the screen won’t break, even after a fall, but that aluminum frame is slippery and it could get scuffed or dinged quite easily. It’s also not the best looking phone in the world, so you may prefer to give it a new look. Time to shop for the best Motorola Droid Turbo 2 cases, or, if you’re outside the States, the best Moto X Force cases.

OtterBox Commuter Case ($35)

You can trust that your Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is safe when it’s inside an OtterBox. The two-piece Commuter isn’t the most protective case the company makes makes, but the blend of a polycarbonate shell with a rubber interior provides solid protection from drops and bumps. You’ll also find that it’s comfortable to hold and really enhances grip. There are well-defined button covers and the port openings have covers to block dirt and dust. It also comes with a screen protector. You can get it in plain black or a kind of two-tone green.

Cimo Soft Case ($8)

A lot of people prefer simple, slim cases like this one from Cimo. It’s a TPU case, so it’s flexible and enhances grip. There’s a slight lip to protect the screen, easy-to-press button covers, and generous cut-outs for the camera and ports. It comes in a range of different colors, and it’s slightly translucent, so you’ll see the design of your Droid Turbo 2 shining through. It’s also slim enough that it doesn’t interfere with wireless charging.

Urban Armor Gear Maverick Case ($35)

This chunky, industrial look is pretty eye-catching, and it’s also very practical. This case meets military drop-test standards (810G-516.6), and it really enhances grip, both in the hand and on surfaces, thanks to the rubbery pads and reinforced corners. The button covers are easy to feel without looking and cut-outs are generous, so you won’t have any trouble plugging into ports. The main body of the case is translucent with a hexagonal pattern, and it comes in clear, red, or grey varieties.

Incipio Octane Case ($25)

The Incipio Octane has a frosted transparent back panel made of tough polycarbonate, and it’s surrounded by a malleable TPU bumper in black, pink, blue, or yellow. It’s a tough combination that will deliver good protection from falls and bumps. The bumper is also textured, so you’re less likely to drop your phone in the first place. The openings are all present and correct, and the button covers are easy to find and press.

Pleson Crystal Clear Case ($8)

If you’ve taken the time to customize your Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and you don’t want to cover it up, then this cheap TPU case could be the one for you. There’s a hard back panel that’s crystal clear with a transparent, flexible bumper that adds some grip and softens off the angular edges. The openings are accurate, so you’ll have no trouble using the camera or accessing the ports, and the button covers work just fine. The case is also thin enough that it doesn’t interfere with wireless charging.

Body Glove Satin Case ($15)

Better known for wetsuits, Body Glove also does a nice line in phone cases. This is a flexible, gel case that will take the sting out of any knock or fall. The edges are textured for enhanced grip, the cut-outs are accurate, and it boasts an anti-microbial coating to prevent odor or bacteria build up. It only comes in black, but the understated style includes gloss highlights and a brushed metal effect on the back.

Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case ($10)

A simple TPU case that offers a thin layer of flexible, shock absorbent protection for your Moto X Force. The Bugdroid also has the Android mascot on the back on top of a circuitry design, etched in gloss into the matte finish. The case is translucent, so details of your phone shine through, and you can choose from a really wide range of colors. The fit is snug, but the cut-outs are a bit tight for the ports and the buttons are trickier to press with the case on.

LK Wallet Case ($10)

Here’s a wallet style case with several slots in the cover for credit cards and your ID. There’s also a larger money pocket at the back. Unfortunately, it’s not real leather, it’s made from polyurethane, but that’s reflected in the low price. There’s a thin, flexible shell inside that your phone sits in. You can also fold it back to prop your phone in landscape view. It has cut-outs for everything, including the camera on the back, but it is a bit bulky. It comes in black, hot pink, purple, mint, or sky blue.

Diztronic TPU Case ($10)

This is another slim, TPU case that provides basic protection without any frills. The button covers are molded and very usable, the cut-outs are big enough for uninterrupted access, and there’s a raised bezel to keep the screen off surfaces. The matte finish is soft to the touch and easy to grip. You can get it in navy blue, grey, or black. The gloss Diztronic logo on the side detracts a little, but otherwise it’s a plain option.

Case Mate Tough Case ($30)

The aptly-named Tough case from Case-Mate sports a dual-layer design that should keep your Droid Turbo 2 safe from impact damage. There’s a special textured, diamond-pattern finish that really enhances the grip and helps it blend in with the phone. The openings are large, so you can access ports and use the camera without any trouble. There is a tiny logo at the bottom of the back, but it’s subtle and the only other detail to speak of is the metallic button covers, which work really nicely.

That’s all the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 cases and covers we have for now, but let us know if you’ve got more favorites.

Samsung Galaxy s10e hands-on

The Samsung Galaxy S21 range may be the newest S-range on the block, but that doesn't mean that the Galaxy S10 line isn't still a tempting option. With enough power to run anything you throw at them and good looks to turn heads for years to come, the Galaxy S10 line is still a fantastic choice if you're looking for a new smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the smallest and cheapest of the S10 line, but it packs the same level of high performance as its bigger brethren. Plus, the dual-camera system produces some exceptional shots.
