Best cases for the Moto G6

Motorola launched its new Moto G6 back in April, a mid-tier smartphone with a 5.7-inch Full HD+ notchless IPS display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a Snapdragon 450 processor, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. There’s a dual rear camera setup with 12MP and 5MP sensors and an 8MP front-facing camera and an affordable price tag of $249. Despite the price tag, the Moto G6 sports a glass rear panel which means that it’s advisable to wrap the phone in a protective case to protect against life’s bumps and knocks. We’ve done the legwork for you, so join us after the break to check out the cases we’ve found for you.
