Anccer Colorful Series Case for Moto G6 review: Slim protection that pops

Thanks to its glass back and slim profile, the Moto G6 is undoubtedly one of the better-looking budget phones you can buy right now. In fact, if you didn't know any better, it'd be easy to confuse it for a phone that costs hundreds of dollars more.

However, as nice as the G6 looks, there are a couple areas that could be improved — its durability and the choice of available colors.

Anccer hopes to remedy these two pain points with its Colorful Series case, and for a little under $12, it's definitely worth adding to your Moto case collection. Here's why!

The Good

  • Keeps the Moto G6 slim
  • Feels great in the hand
  • Lots of available colors

The Bad

  • Not as durable/protective as other similarly priced cases

Anccer Colorful Series Case for Moto G6 What I like

As a big fan of slim cases, the Anccer Colorful Series Case instantly won me over as soon as I slapped it on my Moto G6.

Virtually no extra thickness/bulk is added to the phone when the case is on, and since the power button and volume rocker are left exposed rather than having a cover over them, pressing them doesn't require any extra force like we see with some cases.

Something else that caught my attention is the feel of the case. Anccer uses a soft-touch plastic here, and while I don't have any complaints with the Moto G6's glass back, the soft plastic is considerably more comfortable.

I personally opted for the stunning red color, but if that's not your style, Anccer also sells this case in black, blue, gold, gray, green, pink, and silver.

And, as a nice bonus, Anccer also includes a free phone grip — something that'd usually cost another $10 or so on its own!

Anccer Colorful Series Case for Moto G6 What I don't like

Like we see with many slim cases, the Anccer Colorful Series does leave a bit to be desired from a durability point of view.

Since the top, bottom, and part of the right frame of the phone are left uncovered, there's a good chance of these areas getting damaged in the event of a fall. Also, while there is a small lip that comes up over the front to protect the Moto G6's screen, it's not nearly as pronounced compared to competing cases.

Anccer Colorful Series Case for Moto G6

If the Anccer Colorful Series Case doesn't protect the Moto G6 as well as other cases within the same price range, why are we rating it so high?

Similar to other slim cases we've reviewed, this isn't a product that was designed to offer maximum protection. Instead, it was made with the sole purpose of making your phone look good while keeping it slim — the added protection you get is just a nice bonus.

4 out of 5

If you know what you're buying with the Anccer Colorful Series Case, it's absolutely worth a look. For just $12, it makes the Moto G6 look great, feel extra comfy in the hand, and gives you good coverage against regular wear and tear.
