The Moto G has established itself as the go to budget phone over the years, getting only better as time has gone on, and bringing more faith in the device as it has gone into the third generation this year, adding an extremely great IP rating and better specs than most of the competition out there. Being vanilla Android helps too, and while Motorola Mobile has gone from the hands of Google to Lenovo, the device hasn’t lost much of the momentum it created.
The device, though, deserves some protection and personalization. Here we look at our top three:
Official Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen Shell Replacement Back Cover
While the world of changeable back covers is slowly disappearing, Motorola are clinging hard on to the option. While you can go and customize a back cover to look however you fancy it thanks to Moto Maker, there is a huge range of changeable backs available, and of course, the official ones work the best.
The simple replacement cover from Motorola works rather well, and just replaces the normal back cover, adding its own look and texture to the mix. It also means that you can save the original back cover and use it to make your device look new again.
Clipping the case on and off is rather simple, and once on, it gives a good protection. A nice matte finish makes this nice, and it comes in blue, navy, green, cherry and lime.
It retails at £12.99, and the whole range can be found at MobileFun:
FlexiShield Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen Gel Case
This is the perfect case for those who want a bit of personalization and protection, but also want the case to be light and thin. This case achieves both of those, and with a clever design, protects your bezel and screen rather well. On top of that you have a matte finish and a non-slip grip, making this one highly convenient.
Putting it on and off is fairly easy too. Just focus on the corner and it stretches on, and reverse to take it off.
It comes in Blue, Black, Frost White and Purple, and retails for only £5.99. It can be bought from MobileFun:
ArmourDillo Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen Protective Case
My favourite of the lot, though, is the Armourdillo case from Olixar. A bit of bulk it definitely adds, and that is evident from the pictures, but what it gives you is a lot of protection and functionality, specially with this double protection case, that has an internal plastic lining and then an external hard shell to protect your phone from bumps, scratches and most importantly, drops.
While the bulk is there and needed for the protection, it is actually rather light. The addition of a stand is a great use of the space, and adds good utility. While an extra step is needed in taking it on or off, it is not too cumbersome.
It retails for only £12.99 and can be bought from MobileFun:
