Moto Z and Moto Z Force Cases
The Moto Z represents a fairly big departure from the Motorola design of old, offering a new look that sports a modular design dubbed “Moto Mods”. This new design is certainly one worthy of protecting. That metal body looks great, but if we know anything about said material, that’s the fact it is very prone to scratches and dents. Let’s also not forget that metal tends to be a bit on the slippery side.
Are you looking for a great looking case for your Moto Z or Moto Z Force? There are quite a few options out there, and we know it can be hard to find the best choice for your needs. With that in mind, we are sharing some of the best cases we were able to dig up. So let’s jump right in and take a look.
Moto Z Force Cases
Motorola Swappable Backs
The simplest of all the Moto Mods, these Motorola designed cases are available in a variety of different colors and styles. If you are into the feel of cloth, then there is the Herringbone Nylon, which is a black material with a zig-zag pattern. Or perhaps you are interested in Crimson Ballistic Nylon, a rich red color in a tightly woven pattern? If wood is your fancy, then perhaps you like the Silver Oak: a light-grey color with a fine grain texture. The list goes on and on.
Pricing varies depending on if you pick wood and fabric, at $19.99, or leather, at $29.99. And of course, being official cases, they are designed for the perfect snug fit.
PLESON Ultra Slim Crystal Clear Case
We live in a time where smartphone manufacturers are making powerful products that look really nice, so why should we cover up the industrial beauty of the Moto Z Force? With this case, you can feel better knowing that your phone can take an accidental drop while still looking great. Thin and lightweight, you will barely notice that the case is there. The case’s material prevents slipping and a soft TPU bumper helps to survive falls. The phone is also designed to carefully fit around all the phones ports and is priced very reasonably at $7.95.
Cimo Moto Z Force Droid Case
A little more variety never hurt anyone, and when the cases are inexpensive, why not get two? Cimo offers three cases with clear backs and colored edges: Black, Clear, and Blue; and also offer matte options in: Black, Blue, and Smoke. Like PLESON’s other offerings, these are thin and lightweight and provide an anti-slip material and TPU border to protect against accidental drops. The bezels are raised slightly so you can place your phone upside down without worrying about scratches.
Pricing depends on if you get the hybrid variants at $9.98, or the more affordable matte variants at $7.98.
Speck CandyShell Grip Case
If you are taking a hike or are just prone to dropping your phone, then this may be the case for you. Speck has a history of providing cases that will keep your devices safe, and these are no different. Subjected to Military-Grade drop tests, these cases will keep your new Moto Z Force safe. A dual layer design means that the case is easy to put on and easy to take off. The CandyShell Grip Case comes in a variety of colours: Clear, Beaming Orchid (pink), Rainstorm Blue, and White/Black stripes.
The pricing varies dramatically, depending on the model. Right now you can get Beaming Orchid for just $9.99, with Rainstorm Blue at $27.37, White or Black at $28.46, and Clear is a pretty high $39.95.
Moto Z cases
POETIC Affinity Series
With a protective X-form design and Soft Shock TPU corners, make sure that your new Moto Z stays pristine. The special edges will help you to not drop your phone, and the bezels have been slightly raised to prevent accidental scratches when placing the phone upside down. View the industrial beauty of the Moto Z with these case’s clear design.
There are two different versions, clear/black and totally clear, both at $9.95.
TUDIA Full-Matte Lightweight Case
Made of high quality TPU, this case will compliment your Moto Z’s style while protecting its thin profile from accidental bumps and tumbles. The soft touch material makes your Moto Z grippier and, like other cases, features a raised edge to avoid scratches when the Moto Z is lying on its front. Four flattering shades are available and each makes the Moto Z look fantastic: Frosted Clear, Black, Blue, and Grey.
Regardless of what color you get, they all offer the same $9.90 asking price.
Tauri Hybrid Defender Armor Protective Case Cover
If you are looking for a case with colors and protection that will make your Moto Z stand out, look no farther. The hard plastic outer shell comes in three shades: Black, Purple, and Rose Gold. The secondary inner layer is a strong TPU material, designed to absorb the shock of accidental drops. Precision cut-outs allow for full use of buttons and sensors, and a slim design retains the Moto Z’s profile.
Pricing for all variants is at just $7.99.
