Motorola's newest Style Shell Moto Mods feature Gorilla Glass 5 and interesting designs
Motorola this week stared selling brand new Moto Mods from the Style Shell series. In case you're not familiar with the Style Shell Moto Mods, these are swappable back covers that can change the aspect of Moto Z smartphones, with little added thickness. 

The new Style Shell models are the first Moto Mods made out of polycarbonate and Gorilla Glass 5, and they should be able to survive drops from up to 5.2 feet (1.6 meters). Five different interesting designs are available: Colored Leaves, Expressive Curves, Graphic Flowers, Retro Stripe, and Overlapping Triangles. All new models have the same price - $29.99 - thus costing an extra $10 compared to the previously released Moto Style Shells (Silver Oak Wood, Herringbone Nylon, and Crimson Ballistic Nylon).  

Regardless of design, the Moto Style Shell Mods are compatible with any current Moto Z phone, and we're assuming they'll also work with the upcoming Moto Z3 series.

Hey Motorola, I was wondering if you had something in "not ridiculously ugly".

Would love different colour nylon or leather shells than these. Z3 phones are going to have glass on the back anyway. The same colour as number two but ballistic nylon would be perfect for me.
