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.

Supcase Water Resistant Rugged Case

This rugged hybrid case from Supcase offers multiple layers of protection for your Moto X Pure Edition. Everything from the built-in screen protector, water resistant coverage, and dual-layer design keeps the device safe from the elements and brutal impacts.

Cimo Flexible TPU Case

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. Its slim design makes it easy to handle and slip in and out of your pockets. The glossy edging matched with the matte finish on the back enhances grip, too. As you might expect, there's complete access to everything your Moto X Pure Edition / Style has to offer. Take your pick from black, blue, purple, or smoke.

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.

From the forums: Your favorite cases for Moto X Pure Edition

Earlier this month we asked the members of our Moto X Pure Edition forums what cases they were most looking forward to getting their hands on. We've gotten a bunch of feedback from everyone since then, with cases of all sorts — including some we've mentioned in this article. If you're interested in hearing what others are buzzing about or getting an opinion on a particular Moto X Pure Edition case from other members of the Android Central community, feel free to hop over and join the discussion!

  • I'm picking up the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro (white) for ultimate protection. It's similar to the otterbox, without paying as much. Amazon has it for about $18-$20.
  • The Supcase is a good choice, I had one on my Moto X 2014. The only issue I had was that the clear middle part detatched from the outer colored part, which isn't too bad if the phone stays in the case besides dust working it's way in. You definitely get what you pay for, but if you don't want a case that'll last you more than 6 months the Supcase is a great choice.
  • Yep agree , just got my Supcase Unicorn Beetle in black from Amazon $17,.99
    I had originally ordered a OtterBox but once I put the OtterBox on , OMG the phone was very difficult to handle and I have big hands , the Supcase give it a good protection and the phone is manageable
  • If anyone who has the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro could post pictures of their phone with this case on on the case section I would be so happy :D
  • Honestly, unless you're into bulky cases or TPU for some wierd reason, the Incipio Feather is your only choice. I was extremely impressed, and i've owned several similar Incipio, Diztronic, and Spigen cases for other phones. It avoided the one thing I was really worried about: bulking up an already bulky phone. The rest of the cases out there are those enormous double layer chunkfests that take a huge phone and make it impossible to work with.
  • Lol I share the same sentiments Posted via Android Central App
  • If you are going to go for wood or leather back, why bother if your not going to see it with a cover?
  • Any belt holsters?
  • the Supcase Unicorn Beetle comes with one
  • Supposedly the Case-mate Tough Frame Bumpers (#6 on the list) are still marked as "Coming Soon" from their site, but it looks like Moto direct is already selling them:
  • I am on here looking for a new bumper/case. I spent $20 on the Case mate and the first time I dropped my phone it cracked in 3 places. That's better than a broken phone but for $20 I expected more.
  • Currently using the bumper that came with the phone. I think I'll stick with it for a while as it gives the phone enough protection Posted via the Android Central App
  • Are there any good bumpers out there? I want something like the one that came with the phone but only tighter fitting, tpu, and more flexible.
  • The one that came with the phone would be perfect if it was a little more flexible and tightly fit.
  • I ordered a Bugdroid case from the Cruzerlite website. I've had the Bugdroid cases on my last few phones....Very light case and it provides solid grip. You're only out about $10 too.
  • Anybody used the incipio octane? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I had the Supcase Unicorn Beetle for my Moto X 2013, and now for my Moto X 2014. It's a great looking case and strikes a good balance between being slim and also offering decent protection, it's helped me avoid cracked screens and has survived some nasty drops. The only caveat is that the clear/hard plastic middle part detaches from the outer colored/grippy part if you take the case on and off frequently. It broke on my Moto X 2013 model, so when I got the case for my 2014, I bought two (it's been 6 months and the first one hasn't broken yet, but the outer edge is getting a little flimsy so I have a feeling it will soon). They are great looking and cheap enough that it's worthwhile.
  • I have been using the Incipio DualPro for the last week and love it.
  • I like my Incipio Dualpro case, it was 6 dollars on Ebay. The 3 dollar clear shell case I got is nice too, but doesn't feel as safe.
  • The i-Blason case is going back. It's too small and doesn't fit my device. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I've got the Supcase Unicorn Beetle case in clear/black for my Moto X first gen now. It's OK, but I just bought my Moto X Pure earlier today I bought a Case-Mate Tough Frame bumper for it. The black/charcoal isn't available yet, for whatever reason, but navy & blue is available through their website for $20, plus a 15% discount if you enter your email address at the bottom of the page and sign up for their spam. Plus free standard shipping, because I've got a week before Motorola says my phone will be delivered. I had a Case-mate case of some kind for my Atrix 2 before my first Moto X and it worked out good for me, so I've got high hopes, along with the AC endorsement.
  • You can buy the case mate one through Motorola right now Posted via the Android Central App
  • My OEM bumper case broke and I want a new one but they ARE NOT FOR SALE!!! i don't want to get a full on case and i especially like the bumper case because the few times i've dropped the phone it's still fine, and this phone has a great back cover so why cover it up!?!? Please sell me the OEM bumper. I even called motorola and nothing!
  • I have one I do not need. Tell me what you think it's worth and I will send it to you.
  • Thank you for posting guys!
  • These cases suck.
  • The best case is in the box..I threw away $30 on an incipio, that adds so much volume it's horrible..the PURE doesn't really need anymore than the inbox. it has girth and weight and is virtually yer dosh and just use the freebie...
