Best Cases for Moto G7 Play Android Central 2020

Introduced alongside the rest of the Moto G7 family, the G7 Play sports the smallest display of the group, making it much easier to handle while still giving you a lot of the same features and specs as the other devices. However, there are some of us out there who still want to keep our precious devices protected no matter what. Here are our picks for the best cases for the G7 Play.

Slim and matte: Sunnyw Ultra-Thin TPU Case

Staff pick

Slim cases are popular since they keep the bulkiness of your already-hefty smartphone down. The Sunnyw Slim case offers a compact construction, along with raised bezels and tactile button covers for the best all-around experience.

That allows you to prop up your Moto G7 Play to watch some YouTube or Netflix on the go.

Carbon fiber: CaseRoo Carbon Fiber Protection Cover

The Carbon Fiber case from CaseRoo is your more traditional protective case, but that might be just what you're looking for. This G7 Play case offers not only shock absorption but also slip-resistance and heat-dissipation. All of this for a super low cost.

Trusted protection: OtterBox Commuter LITE

OtterBox is a leading brand for protective cases and for good reason as the reliability is off the charts. The Commuter LITE case for the G7 Play is a fantastic option as it offers dual-layers of protection without adding much bulk.

Scratch resistant: Speck Products Presidio Lite

When it comes to protecting your smartphone, it's crucial to have a tough outer shell, along with some type of screen protection. The Speck Products Presidio Lite has all of this and more with its polycarbonate outer-shell, silicone inner layer, and included a tempered glass screen protector.

Leather folio: 32nd Classic Series Leather Book Wallet Cover

Fashion and function are essential in today's busy world, and the 32nd Classic Series Leather Book Wallet Cover takes care of both with ease. Plus, when you flip the case open, there are three slots for credit or ID cards, and a pocket for cash or receipts.

Full body: Evocel EvoGuard

Evocel's EvoGuard case comes in five different colors, but this case is definitely for those who tend to beat up their phones. There is a thick outer shell, which adds quite a bit of bulk but can withstand just about anything you throw at it. Evocel even includes a tempered glass screen protector, giving you 360 degrees of defense.

Impact resistance: Poetic Affinity Hybrid Bumper Cover

Instead of relying on multiple pieces to keep the G7 Play protected, the Poetic Affinity case sports an anti-slip texture for improved grip, along with raised edges to protect the display. On the inside, there is a unique honeycomb pattern that aims to help keep your device protected if it tumbles towards the ground.

Put a ring on it: Rebex Armor with Rotating Ring Kickstand

If you are trying to keep your phone in your hands, then you might opt for a PopSocket or something similar. With the Rebex Armor Case, you don't need to do that as there is a ring built into the back of the case, which doubles as a kickstand.

Full body: Poetic Full-Body Guardian Case

The Poetic Full-Body Guardian case is comprised of two pieces with the back piece made of a polycarbonate back, TPU lining, and bumpers. The front snaps into the back case and includes a built-in screen protector so that your G7 Play is fully-protected.

No slips here: Ghostek Covert Case

Ghostek's Covert Case for the Moto G7 Play is ultra-slim while providing re-inforced corners for extra protection. The case is rated for withstanding drops up to almost 6-feet and has an anti-slip texture so it won't fall out of your hands.

Slim with two layers: CoverON Slim Hybrid

The problem with some cases is that the buttons end up getting mushy over time, making it difficult to press them. That won't be an issue with CoverON's Slim Hybrid case, as there are metal buttons providing better feedback and removing the worry about them going mushy over time. The case itself has a hybrid dual-layer design, along with three different (and fun) colors to choose from.

What would we use

Just because the Moto G7 Play is a budget phone doesn't mean that it isn't worth protecting. Sure, you'll find more cases for some of the more popular flagships, but there are still plenty on the market for the G7 Play and its other G7 siblings.

If you're a fan of slim cases that offer minimal bulk to your phone, then the Sunnyw Ultra-Thin TPU Case is for you. This case includes raised bezels to keep your screen and camera away from being scratched. Additionally, the case itself has a matte feel, making it easy to keep your grip on the Moto G7 Play as you go through the day.

For those that don't care about bulk and want the best protection, the Encased Scorpio is likely for you. Of course, you can throw your phone on your hip to keep your pockets free, but these combinations also will protect your G7 Play from any harm that may come its way.
