Best cases you can buy today for Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus

What are the best cases you can buy today for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus?

The Moto G4 and G4 Plus are still pretty new on the market, but savvy case designers are keeping up with these latest offerings from Motorola. We'll keep updating as more cases become available, but in the meantime we've got some great suggestions to match your new phone.

Orzly FlexiCase

Orzly FlexiCase

The FlexiCase from Orzly is made of flexible silicone gel, so it's easy to install and won't move around on you. The slim fit won't add bulk to your Moto G4 or G4 Plus, but the non-slip gloss finish makes the phone much easier to grip.

All of your ports, buttons, and screen features remain available while the case is on. The case is available in a clear finish, or you can choose colors like black, blue, red, or purple. Orzly is well-reviewed and popular with Motorola users, and the FlexiCase is a great example of why.

If you're looking for a stylish case that you can keep a grip on without adding bulky bumpers onto your phone, the Orzly FlexiCase is for you.

Cimo Premium Slim Protective case

Cimo Premium Slim Protective case

There are six color variations of the case from Cimo, including solid colors or clear and color hybrids. Want to look a little more polished with a matte finish? Go for the solid. Want to have a little fun? Grab the clear back and colorful bumper combination.

The anti-slip TPU provides better grip in your hands and extra protection against the everyday bumps and jostles you can't avoid. The case provides slightly raised bezels to help keep your screen safe from hard surfaces if you tend to place your Moto G4 or Moto G4 Plus face down.

The Cimo cases don't block any buttons or functions, and at its reasonable price point, you might want to snag more than one.

The faux metal look is brushed, industrial, and classic. The two-piece backing is made of rubber and hard plastic, but it's not going to add weight to your phone; it's only going to look heavy. The material combination protects against the little bumps and shocks that happen from time to time, and the case fits nicely over a screen protector.

If you want that heavy look with a light feel, the CoverOn Chrome Series will do the trick.

Netflix is popular, but most of you subscribe to more than one service

Watching television on an app doesn't mean it's the only place you're watching.

In last week's poll we asked how you prefer to watch your television and movies. We live in a world filled with options for how you want to watch. You can keep using cable, download an app like Netflix or Hulu, or even grab yourself a Tivo to record your shows off of cable so that you can watch them at your leisure later.

OnePlus 3: A second opinion

101
OnePlus 3

A phone as good as the OnePlus 3 should really cost more than $399. They've nailed it this time around. Now they just have to keep the software up to date.

There's not a whole lot to say about the OnePlus 3 that we haven't already said. (You've read our official OnePlus 3 review already, right?) This phone is legit. It hits a price point that's not inexpensive, but doesn't break the bank. And on paper, the OnePlus 3 probably should cost more than the $399 asking price.

It ticks all the boxes. It's nicely designed and built just as well as anything else out there.

So is there any reason to not recommend this phone?

Let's take another quick spin around the OnePlus 3 and see what's what.
