Best cases for the Moto X4

It took a little while for Lenovo to produce a new handset in the Moto X series, but it was definitely worth waiting for. With a glass rear panel and edges that curve slightly into the sides of the phone, the Moto X4 is one of the prettier Motorola phones around, albeit a little slippy at times. You don’t have to leave your Moto X4 exposed to life’s knocks though, we’ve found these excellent cases that will keep your handset protected.

CoverON ClearGuard Slim Fit

First up is the ClearGuard Hard Slim Fit case from CoverON that features a clear polycarbonate rear panel that lets the beauty of the Moto X4 shine through. The rear panel is fused with semi-flexible TPU bumpers that enable the Moto X4 to slip in and out of the case with ease while being held securely. As you might expect, the case protects the phone against mishaps while maintaining a slim profile. The ClearGuard Hard Slim Fit case is available in Black and Clear options as well as a funky Teal Mandala Design from Amazon for a very reasonable $8.99.
