Best Moto G5 Plus Cases Android Central 2019

If you recently bought a Moto G5 Plus at a discount, you should reinvest some of that money you saved on a case to keep it in tip-top condition. I've rounded up a wide variety of cases here —from heavy duty and rugged to slim and sleek — but I don't think you can do much better than the exceptional Spigen Rugged Armor.

Our pick: Spigen Rugged Armor

Staff pick

Spigen's Rugged Armor lineup offers a great balance between style and functionality without adding a ton of bulk to your phone. This is one of the most popular cases in the world for a reason.

Clearly colorful: Ringke Fusion

Striking the right balance between protection and thickness, the Ringke Fusion series is one of the most popular for a reason. Get the Moto G5 Plus version in one of three awesome colors: Smoke Black, Rose Gold Crystal, and Clear.

Classic hybrid construction: Tudia Merge Series

Tudia's Merge Series may not be the most imaginative style in the world, but it's dependable, affordable, and offers some distinctive color combos like the grey/green seen here. Get a protective case with personality like the Merge Series.

Thick as a brick: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro with Built-in Screen Protector

The Supcase Unicorn is thick and bulky for a reason: it'll protect your Moto G5 Plus from anything life throws at you. It comes with a built-in screen protector, too, so you can protect that shiny metal back and shiny glass back in one complete package.

Flex2O stretch and sturdiness: Incipio NGP

If you're looking for a lightweight rugged case, Incipio's NGP case is the right voice for you. It's a no-fuss choice that provides considerable protection, specifically around the sides and back. The black is more reserved, but it also comes in hot pink.

Rugged good looks: Poetic Revolution

If rugged protection is the name of the game for you, you'll want to consider this Poetic Revolution case for the Moto G5 Plus. It offers full protection for your phone, including a front plate with a built-in screen protector that also adds water resistance to the mix.

Crisp color snap-on: ORNARTO Thin Fit

These thin hardshell cases from ORNARTO may not offer as heavy-duty protection as Poetic Revolution, but it will protect that shiny metal finish from scratches while adding a bit of grip and a lot of color. I'm partial to this genie blue, but the green and red pop, too.

Card carrying cover: DLHLLC Ultra Slim Wallet Folio

While the Moto G5 Plus may not have quite a much room for card carrying as other phones, that doesn't mean you can't find a cute folio case that can carry the essentials. Skip the purse and grab this slim magnetic folio in one of six colors instead.

$13 at Amazon

Thin, not flimsy: Tudia Ultra Slim

Tudia's carbon fiber Ultra Slim case is the perfect way to cover your Moto G5 Plus with minimal bulk. A stylish and inexpensive solution for not a lot of money, and it's available in three colors to give you a choice beyond the Spigen Rugged Armor's boring black.

No matter your taste, your phone needs a case

The Moto G5 Plus is one excellent-looking all-metal budget phone, but that shiny metal finish is very easily scratched. While all of these choices are fantastic, I really love the Spigen Rugged Armor, which offers the best of all worlds of protection for your phone.

If you want a little more flair in your case, there are still great options out there like the clear-backed Ringke Fusion or the TUDIA Merge Series, which has some muted and bold color options. After all, life's too short for boring tech, so get a case with some personality to it!
