Top 10 best cases for Moto X Pure Edition

Although the Moto X Pure Edition is still relatively fresh off the shelves, we're not seeing as many big name case manufacturers with options for the device. Popular picks like Spigen and Seidio are opting to take a pass this time around — which is a bummer, but it doesn't mean there aren't great options available to keep you covered. We've selected the best cases for the Moto X Pure Edition that include bumpers, hybrid cases, rugged cases, clear cases, and even some favorites from the forums that are worth checking out.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case

The Unicorn Beetle is back! This unique hybrid cover for the Moto X Pure Edition adds texture, grip, and amazing impact protection that looks great around the device. It packs both a shock absorbent TPU and a durable, see-through polycarbonate shell. Although it's not the slimmest case of the bunch, it adds a cool aesthetic to the Moto X Pure Edition and does a jam-up job at handling impacts and scratches.

i-Blason Clear Case

Since Ringke seems to have decided to overlook the Moto X Pure Edition / Style this time, there's a suitable substitute in town that lets the original look of the device shine through beautifully. i-Blason's Clear Case snaps on around the Moto X Pure Edition for a slim fit and transparent look. The 3H hardness rating of the polycarbonate shell helps to resist scratches and enhance grip. The front bezel even elevates the display enough to lay it screen-side down on any table or flat surface.

JOTO Hybrid Armor Case

If you're after a case for the Moto X Pure Edition that's simple, effective, and most importantly — affordable, then JOTO's Hybrid Armor Case is a solid choice. This cover uses an inner TPU layer to absorb impacts while the easy-grip polycarbonate shell that sits on top keeps everything together. There's access to the camera, display, and ports, while the side buttons are raised for an easier press. Available colors include black, gray, gold, green, silver, and orange.

You can't go wrong with a durable skin case for the Moto X Pure Edition, and the Cimo Premium TPU Case is one worth its attractive price point.

OtterBox Defender Series Case & Holster

Surprisingly enough OtterBox has stayed in the game with their popular Defender Case for the Moto X Pure Edition / Style. There's the same brute protection we've come to know and love, including the matching rugged holster — not required to purchase separately. Along with its multi-layer design and integrated screen protector are port plugs to keep out dirt and debris. Although this rugged case certainly isn't everyone's cup of tea, it's perfect for those that want the ultimate protection for their Moto X Pure Edition.

Case-Mate Tough Frame Case

If the OEM bumper case for the Moto X Pure Edition doesn't cut it for you, you may want to opt for Case-Mate's Tough Frame. This slim bumper offers 4-corner drop protection without all the extra layers or built-in screen protectors. Its simple snap-and-go design makes handling your device easier while elevating your display from flat surfaces. It's currently in production, but will be up for grabs very soon.

Incipio Octane Case

The Octane Case from Incipio features a fused dual-layer design that provides optimal shock absorption and grip when wrapped around the Moto X Pure Edition. The back "plextonium polycarbonate" cover is slightly transparent, too. Side buttons are raised through the flexible bumper while the ports, camera, and display remain open.

Incipio Feather Case

If you're not into multiple layers and only desire the bare minimum when it comes to protecting your Moto X Pure Edition, the Incipio Feather Case fits the bill quite nicely. This ultra-slim snap on case is made of durable polycarbonate that leaves out the frills — just simple security against minor drops. The shell actually adds a bit of grip, too, but can be a stickler for fingerprints.
