Top 9 best cases for the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition

Top 9 best cases for the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition
If you're looking to protect your current-gen Motorola flagship, you've come to the right place! In what follows, we're going to take a look at the top 9 best Motorola Moto X Pure cases currently out there.

Like with all of our previous case roundups, diversity was one of our main goals when selecting the best Moto X Pure cases. As such, we've included clear TPU cases, a few hard cases, rugged cases, and even a bumper case.

Although it's definitely not as shiny as the new Samsung Galaxy S7 series, the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition remains one of the best value-for-money smartphones on the market. At the moment, the Moto X Pure can be had for just $299.99. At this money, it's hard to find a more attractive proposition in the US smartphone market.

Case-Mate Tough Frame

Price: $20

Like with all of Motorola's flagship phones in these past few years, customers can customize the 2015 Moto X Pure using the company's Moto-Maker website. If you're willing to pay extra to customize the accents of the phone or to engrave your name on the back of the phone, then you probably don't want to hide your customized phone under a case.

By getting a bumper case for the Moto X Pure, you can score some impact protection for your phone while still exposing the design of the phone for everyone (including yourself) to admire.

Priced at $20, the Case-Mate Tough Frame Case bumper case isn't on the cheap side, but the next time your Moto X Pure meets the floor, you'll probably be glad that you picked a quality bumper case.

i-Blason Halo Series Hybrid Clear

Price: $11.99

If you need more scratch protection than a bumper case can offer but still want to showcase the design of the phone, then a clear TPU case might turn out to be an optimal solution.

Priced at an affordable $11.99, the i-Blason Halo Hybrid Clear Case for the Moto X Pure ticks all the boxes that a clear TPU case should. It has a transparent back, shock-absorbing bumpers, raised edges to protect the display, and it's also made out of a scratch-resistant material.

For three extra bucks, you can slap colored bumpers while maintaining the clear back cover. Check out the pics below for more details:

Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit 

Price: $9.90

The Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for the Motorola Moto X Pure is a more colorful but still lightweight choice. In terms of protection, this one is still a TPU case, meaning that you get some scratch resistance and some impact protection, but not heavy duty protection.

Aside from the nerdy but interesting pattern on the back, another thing to like about the Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit case is the color diversity. Since this case is priced at just $9.90, consider getting a couple of differently-colored units. This way, you'll be switch between colors that are more playful or more formal, depending on the context.

Incipio Feather

Price: $14.99

For a slim and lightweight case, make sure to check out Incipio's Feather Ultra Thin Snap-On Case for the Moto X Pure. This case is made out of polycarbonate, which is tougher material compared to TPU, although it's not as good at absorbing shock.

The Incipio Feather case for the Moto X is simple but elegant and is available in any color as long as it's black.

Incpio Octane

Price: $14.99

The Incipio Octane is one of the most popular case series out there, and the Moto X Pure version of the case is definitely one to consider. The Incipio Octane case comes with a shock-absorbing TPU bumper and a hard polycarbonate back cover.

In Incipio's style, the Octane cover features a simple but elegant design. Furthermore, you can choose between two colors for the bumper and six colors for the back shell.

SUPACASE Unicorn Beetle

Price: $13.99

As an alternative to the Incipio Octane, check out the SUPACASE Unicorn Beetle case for the 2015 Motorola Moto X Pure, which is another case that offers a TPU bumper and a hard polycarbonate back. Obviously, the design is a bit different (more futuristic), and we should also note that the back cover is semi-transparent.


Price: $19.99

From this point on, we'll move the focus to Moto X Pure cases that offer full protection. One good pick in this category is the SUPACASE Rugged Case, which comes with a TPU bumper, a hard polycarbonate shell on the back, as well as a front cover with a built-in screen protector. 

Priced at $20 SUPCASE's rugged case for the Moto X Pure Edition comes with three interchangeable covers colored in gray, silver, and gold.

i-Blason Prime

Price: $14.99

The i-Blason Prime Series case for the Moto X Pure Edition offers extreme protection. The outside of the case is made out of a hard polycarbonate material that offers impact protection while the silicone inner sleeve offers additional shock protection. Also, the corners of the case come with double silicon layers for even further protection against impact.

The back cover also integrates a kickstand, and the case also comes with a belt clip swivel holster. On the downside, this case does add quite a bit of bulk to the Moto X Pure.

Otterbox Defender

Price: $53.95

If you're looking for the best rugged case for the Moto X Pure Edition and budget is not an issue, then the Otterbox Defender case is what you should be using. The case comes with a hard polycarbonate shell, internal foam padding, a rubber outer slipcover, as well as a built-in screen protector. 

Priced at $53.95, this is by far the most expensive case listed here, but you also get the advantage of lifetime warranty.
