Best Cases for Moto E5 Plus Android Central 2019

The Moto E5 Plus is one of the more "upscale" phones you can buy for under $200 — quite a steal for a capable phone that's powered by a massive 5000 mAh battery. We still recommend a case, even for a budget phone like this, because drop damage never looks good on a phone. We've done the hard work of rounding up the best cases available for the Moto G5 Plus.

Most reliable: Spigen Rugged Armor case

Staff pick

The Spigen Rugged Armor is an easy recommendation for just about any phone it's available for, because it's got a slim one-piece design with reinforced corners. It offers good protection without adding too much bulk to your phone.

Trusted name: Otterbox Prefix Series case

Rugged and comfortable: Incipio NGP Advanced Case

Incipio's NGP case is a solid option that's a bit pricier than other options on this list. But if you've used an Incipio case before, you know this brand is known for creating heavy duty cases that are equally stylish. Definitely a case to consider given the limited options available for the Moto G5 Plus.
