The Motorola One 5G is one of a growing range of affordable yet high-quality Android smartphones. Priced at a more accessible $445, it still manages to fit 5G support, a good camera, a long-lasting battery, smooth software, and a very sharp screen into its glossy plastic frame. It’s much more capable and user-friendly than its price alone would suggest, yet like almost all smartphones, it’s not immune to falls and damage.
Fortunately, we’ve rounded up five of the best Motorola One 5G cases you can buy right now. These will protect your new phone from nasty bumps, shocks, and drops, and while no case will entirely eliminate all conceivable risks, they go a long way to keeping it in one piece.
M Maikezi Protective Phone Case for Motorola One 5G
Here’s a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) case that’s soft and flexible while still providing a good level of protection for your Motorola 5G. Shaped to fit all of the phone’s buttons and slots, its brushed back and carbon-fiber design offers a nonslip level of grip, which is also resistant to sweat marks and fingerprints. It comes in four different colors (black, gray, navy blue, and red), and even if it’s not the most stylish case we’ve ever seen, its thin, light design retains much of the original feel of the phone. It also comes with a free polyethylene terephthalate (PET) screen protector, although you may prefer a separate glass protector for increased hardness.
Speck Presidio Exotech Case for Motorola One 5G
Boasting military-grade drop protection, the Speck Presidio Exotech case is a simple yet highly effective single-layer cover for the Motorola One 5G. Made of molded plastic that fits closely to the phone and provides a comfortable level of grip, it’s also coated with an antimicrobial treatment from Microban that claims a 99% reduction in stains and odor-causing bacteria. It features raised edges and a raised bezel that offer additional protection for the phone’s screen, while its cutouts fit the device very snugly. It may be pricier compared to cases you can find on Amazon, but it does pretty much everything you’d want a case to do while also looking attractively minimal.
Starhemei for Motorola One 5G Case
For some smartphone owners, a drab black or gray case simply won’t do, no matter how protective it is. Such owners would do well to check out this Motorola One 5G case from Starhemei, which comes in a wide range of options, all of which feature colorful floral designs (it’s also available in clear, transparent plastic). It certainly looks pretty, while its TPU rubber build will protect your phone from everyday damage and drops. It’s also equipped with raised edges, which protect the phone’s screen, and also “airbags” in each of the four corners, which should provide additional reinforcement against cracks. All in all, this is a very good case, made even better by its highly-affordable price.
Evutec AER Karbon Case for Motorola One 5G
Other cases on this list may boast military-grade protection, but if you want military-grade protection and then some, Evutec’s AER Karbon Case for the Motorola One 5G is the way to go. It’s made of Evutec’s own Karbon material, which is a composite material that includes aramid fibers, which are reputedly five times as strong as steel. Regardless of just how strong it is in reality, it should serve to protect your Motorola One 5G from pretty much every fall or knock it’s likely to suffer. It also helps that the case looks pretty sleek and stylish and fits the phone very cleanly. Highly recommended, despite being the most expensive item on this list.
Kwmobile Wallet Case for Motorola One 5G
Every self-respecting smartphone has one, and here’s the Motorola One 5G’s wallet case. It’s a dual-layer case made of faux-leather and an underlying textile fabric that should do a good job of keeping your phone safe, even if neither are military-grade like some of the materials used by other cases. Needless to say, the case looks considerably more stylish than most cases and will come in very handy for anyone who doesn’t really relish carrying a wallet and smartphone around with them separately. It features three slots for cards, while it also comes with a larger slot for banknotes. It also has a magnetic closure and all the necessary cutouts for the phone’s buttons and slots.
