The best Motorola Moto G Stylus (2020) cases

While most smartphones can facilitate the use of a stylus, relatively few actually ship with one. One phone that does is the reasonably priced Motorola Moto G Stylus (2020). The phone’s plastic back is designed to be quite a bit more durable than phones with a glass back, and the handset is splash-proof. Plastic parts can scratch easily, though, which is why we always recommend you protect your smartphone with a case. We’ve rounded up some of the coolest cases you may want to consider in case you’re the proud owner of one of these gorgeous phones.

SUPCase Unicorn Beetle Pro Case

Want a case that provides 360-degree protection for your new phone? The Unicorn Beetle Pro case is a dual-layer TPU and polycarbonate case offering shock absorption and a no-slip grip, plus a built-in screen protector to keep your screen safe from scratches. With its detachable swivel belt clip holster and kickstand for hands-free viewing, it provides complete protection for your Moto G Stylus, and then some.

Otterbox Commuter Lite Series Case

Great if you’re the type to slip your phone into your back pocket, the Commuter Lite Series case from OtterBox is super slim and compact, so it won’t add bulk to your phone. Its soft inner layer with synthetic rubber slip cover and hard polycarbonate outer shell absorbs and deflects impact, keeping your phone safe from anything life can throw at it. It comes in black or this gorgeous Mint Way Teal version, which adds a pop of fresh color to the Moto G Stylus.

Spigen Rugged Armor Case

Spigen is top of the class when it comes to superior protection for your phone, and this carbon fiber case is no exception. Sleek, slim, and with reinforced corners, it’s constructed from flexible TPU with a textured inner pattern and air cushion technology to absorb shocks. Its matte black finish with carbon fiber detail adds a touch of style.

UAG Scout Case

The Scout case combines minimalistic design and ultra-light construction with total protection for your phone. Thanks to its impact-resistant soft core, this case meets military drop test standards MIL-STD 810G 516.6 and it has a raised bezel surrounding the screen to stop it from ever touching down. Its non-slip rugged grip keeps your phone firmly in your hand, great if you’re a bit of a butterfingers.

Anccer Colorful Series Cover

Cases don’t have to be bulky to be protective, as this one from Anccer proves. At 0.8mm thick, its ultra-thin yet its hard polycarbonate construction keeps your phone safe from scratches, drops, and bumps. A raised 0.3mm bezel around the camera module gives an additional layer of protection to your camera lenses. This case is available in blue, black, rose gold, or a vibrant green — our pick.

E-Began Rugged Case

You will never have to worry about losing your grip with the E-Began case, featuring a shock-absorbent TPU interior, polycarbonate cover, and rugged grip that acts to protect the phone’s delicate screen. A handy built-in kickstand makes it easy to use the phone to read or watch videos. A 360-degree reinforced metal rotational clip and belt clip also help out with hands-free viewing.

Osophter Silicone Case

A beautiful flower pattern may adorn the Osophter case, but don’t let the design fool you. Accompanying the petals is a shock-absorbent, shatterproof premium TPU and polycarbonate combo that provides cushioning at the corners to protect your phone from impact, falls, and scratches. This clear case is tear and dust-resistant. It’s available in a choice of yellow, purple, or pink floral print.

This retro wallet-style flip case secures your phone with shockproof protection from everyday bumps, knocks, drops, dirt, scratches, and dings without adding bulk. The case is handcrafted with durable synthetic PU leather and TPU silicone gel to hold your phone in place and feel super comfortable in the hand. Three card slots and one money pocket keep your ID, credit cards, and cash safe within a magnetic closure, and you’ll still have easy access to all available functions of your smartphone. Cutouts for the camera, charger, speaker, headphone, and lock button let you operate the phone without removing the case. A built-in adjustable stand is ideal for watching movies, video chatting, and regular chatting with multi-viewing angles. It’s available in blue, black, brown, or red.

Gesma TPU Case

This deluxe package includes a protective case complete with two screen protectors to provide the ultimate shield for your Moto G Stylus. The case sports a slim, fashionable, form-fitted design. Its 360-degree protection is augmented by raised lip edges to protect the screen from scratches when the phone is lying face down. The screen protector has an oleophobic coating that acts to reduce smudges and fingerprints and ensures easy cleaning.

The Google Pixel Fold may launch a lot sooner than you expected
Alleged dummy model of the Google Pixel Fold.

Google is apparently closer to launching its first foldable phone a lot earlier than leaks had predicted. WinFuture, citing information received from sellers, reports that the Pixel Fold is lined up for a market release in June. It appears that Google will at least give a brief teaser of the phone at its I/O developers conference in May, alongside the budget-centric Pixel 7a.

The report adds that Pixel Fold is the official marketing name of the foldable phone, and it will at least be up for grabs in the European markets in the second week of June. The eagerly awaited phone will be sold in a sole 256GB storage configuration, while color options on the table are Carbon and Porcelain.

Bixby vs. Google Assistant: Which AI is better for you?
google assistant mobile.

AI digital assistants and chatbots (like ChatGPT) are huge now, and there are more than a few to choose from. If you, like many Android phone owners, have a Samsung device, then you have the choice between two AI assistants: the Google-backed Google Assistant and Samsung's Bixby.
What are the differences between the two assistants, and which one is better for you? Is Bixby better than Google Assistant, or should you  go all-in with Google's AI? We compared Bixby and the Google Assistant to find out. 
Bixby vs. Google Assistant: device integration

Google Assistant is available on all Google Nest and Home products, including Android TVs, lights, security cams, speakers, and more. Google Assistant is also available on Android Auto, so you can use the virtual assistant to execute commands when you’re driving. Google Assistant is available on other brands' smart devices too, so you can use Google's voice assistant on Lenovo's Smart Home System. You'll also find it in all of the best Android phones, but did you know you can also download and use it on Apple iPhones as well?
Samsung’s Bixby, on the other hand, is limited to Samsung devices, like the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It's also limited to only being able to control other devices via the SmartThings app, rather than having native support. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is more restricted. However, full functionality of Bixby is limited to newer devices, so unlike Google Assistant, which tends to be available to older devices, you'll need to keep upgrading to get the most out of Bixby.
This won’t matter much for users who’ve been using Samsung devices for years and want to continue investing in new Samsung products, but if you live with people using different Android devices, Google Assistant might be a better option for smoother integration across devices.
The winner is pretty clear here. Google Assistant is available on a lot more devices, including Apple iPhones, and helps you to create a comprehensive system for convenient use. 
Winner: Google Assistant
Bixby vs. Google Assistant: performance and accessibility

First Google Pixel 8 Pro renders reveal some surprising changes
Leaked render of the Google Pixel 8 Pro.

Once again, and in an unsurprising turn of events, Google has missed the leak train. Leakers @OnLeaks and SmartPrix have leaked rumored renders of the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro. Going by the Pixel 7's launch date, the next Pixel flagship has leaked a good six months ahead of its official introduction.
Google's terrible track record aside, let's discuss the leaked renders. It looks like the company's design team is favoring rounded edges again. The Pixel 7 duo was an improvement over the boxy looks of its predecessor, and the Pixel 8 Pro only appears to add more of that rounded corner profiling. It actually looks good, albeit a bit wider.

The overall design remains more or less the same. Google is sticking to the dual-tone approach with glass on both sides, and a metal frame that also extends over at the back to form the horizontal camera strip. Another change compared to the Pixel 7 Pro’s dual cut-out design is that the Pixel 8 Pro only has single elongated pill-shaped outline housing all three camera sensors.
This triple-lens setup likely includes a primary high-resolution snapper, an ultra-wide angle camera, and a periscope-style telephoto zoom shooter. There’s another round cutout right below the LED flash, but it’s unclear if it’s a macro or depth camera, or some kind of IR or a specialized photosensitive sensor.
