Plenty of color options and durable construction are highlights of this official accessory
Part of the charm of the little Moto G is the assortment of candy-colored back shells you can buy. It's a veritable rainbow of choice, and you'll find one to suit your tastes if you want more than the basic black that comes with the phone. Moto has carried much of this over to the official flip shell case as well.
It attaches the same way the normal, non-flippy case backs do. Stick your fingernail under the shell at the USB cut-out, and peel back like a banana. The current case back will pop off, and the new one snaps in using plastic clips around the edges. It's pretty simple.
The flip shell comes in a few colors of its own. Available in chalk, black, violet, royal blue, turquoise and lemon lime there are enough options here to offer something for everyone. They're also pretty well constructed, with cut-outs the right size and in the right place for access to all the controls, buttons and holes in your Moto G.
Like any flip case worth its salt, the cover has magnets in just the right spot so that the screen turns off when closed, and on when open. With a cut-out for the earpiece speaker, you can also talk on the phone while the cover is closed. Also, like every other flip case, when open and folded behind the phone for holding, access to the camera is blocked. The cover itself is uniquely textured, and exceptionally strong and thick.
At $30, the flip shell is twice the price of the normal back shells. But if you really want a very nicely done flip-style case for your Moto G, you could do worse. It fits great, comes in plenty of color choices, and will protect your screen while in a bag or a pocket. You can grab one from Moto right here.
