Moto G Grip Shell.

It's a Moto G replacement shell — with more grip — in an array of bright colors.​

Motorola's Moto G (be sure to read our full review) brings a (relatively) low-cost phone while keeping the ability to customize. And one of those ways is with the Grip Shell. It's in the same vein as the $14.99 replacement shells and ads in a bumper-like edging around the phone. 

It's a simple enough proposition, and easy to swap on and off. (Just be sure to remove the stock shell before trying to put this one on.) Slide the top end of the phone into the shell, work your way around the rubber edging, and you're good to go. It might take a little prying, but nothing unexpected. As you'd expect with a name like Grip Shell, you get a fair amount of grip added to the phone — not a bad thing in the case of the Moto G, whose matte shells could get a bit slick. There are cutouts for the microphone holes, 3.5mm headphone jack, camera and speakers. The power and volume buttons are covered by the rubber bumper but work flawlessly.

And the Grip shells are nicely two-toned. You know, for kids. They're available in the four colors seen here — chalk, royal blue, lemon lime and cherry — or in the always classic all black.

We've got some more pics after the break. You can buy the Moto G Grip Shell directly from Motorola for $14.99.

Nice. That' a good price too. I hate when OEM's price there cases at $39.99 and $49.99. I'm looking at you google with your Nexus accessories.

Does anyone know if something very similar exists for the Moto X? I really like the design of the cover.


baldypal says:

The comparable product for the Moto X. Got one myself. Like it. i got yellow. gets dirty quickly from regular usage.

searchmaven says:

Does it have a cutout on the back for the "dimple" or is it covered?

Potati says:

It replaces the original backing. Yes, it has the dimple.

I've got the lemon/lime one waiting for me at home.

Pro Tip: by default, shipping was $10 for overnight. I changed the shipping to standard delivery (3-5 days) for $4, but Moto sent it overnight anyway. I'm not sure if it was a goof or I got lucky, but either way thanks Moto!

Mine got switched to overnight too (black/white combo), and so did my wife's Moto X order last week. This might be Moto's new thing? If so, I'm an even bigger fan.

Mine shipped Friday, got them this morning.

I was also overnighted free of charge. I love that Motorola is so keen to get these out there given the release delay.

Sweet shells.

What about us Canadians? When can we get our hands on these cases?

Is the rubber edging removable and swappable with other Grip shells? The color combo possibilities would be enormous!

I was wondering and hoping that same thing but unfortunately you can't. Its all seamless which is nice because it makes it feel less like a case and more like part of the phone. Having said that i am right there with you. I'd love to have some different combinations. I really like blue but I'm not sure about the green edge. Same with the red and maroon grip shell. They are such high quality though that I may go ahead and pick the blue/greed up

puddnhead2 says:

The price in the last sentence is wrong. It's $19.99, not $14.99. Or did the price go up since last week?

relicpower says:

I saw it last week for 13.99 on the moto website but I can't even buy it cause I'm not in the USA!!

Hello ,I truly can't wait to get paid again so that I can buy one or two of these although they are affordable to most I live from payday to payday I couldn't afford to buy a case when I got my phone But I love my phone and it need protection I've been worried about it slipping out of my hand and breaking. the color I'd pick would be blue or pink but I like them all

I would love to have the blue or pink if I could afford it I taken all I love my moto g

amhumza says:

moto G 16Gb good phone with up to date software everything is fine. it compares with nexus 5 surely samsung market will down for a while. bought through flipkart importer.

It does look very attracctive! but importantly does it protect the phone from falls?

Since they allow to replace the back backing, why no extended batteries ?!
