Motorola's continuation of the modular Z-series in 2019 was the Moto Z4. Sure, it looks pretty much identical to the Moto Z3 and can use all the same Moto Mods as the older Z-series phones — but can you use a Moto Z3 case with your Z4? Nope! Instead, here are the best cases compatible with the Moto Z4 if you're still carrying one around.

To Moto Mod, or not to Moto Mod...

Using a phone case is common sense with any smartphone, old or new, to protect it. But slapping a case on a modular phone such as the Moto Z4 is also a tacit admission that you don't care all that much about using Moto Mods. All those cases that are leaving the connector pins exposed won't work with any Moto Mod that needs to sit flush against the phone — and if you somehow do manage to get it to connect, it's not going to stay connected properly as it should.

Our top recommendation is the Tudia Merge Series (opens in new tab), which offers sleek and rugged protection without pretending you could ever use it with a Moto Mod. This is just a reliably designed case that will protect your Moto Z4 quite well.

We'd also recommend the Poetic Revolution (opens in new tab) case if you want something a bit more premium in design that includes both enhanced protection and better grip.
