    I picked up "Hyperion TPU" off Amazon for about $6. Pretty cheap case that came with a screen protector which is cheap as well :O It does make the buttons a little harder to operate but I don't use the unlock button very often with the X.

    I like it because it doesn't have branding all over it and it has a cutout for the back dimple.



    I like the way the shape of the X hides the bulk of the phone even with a cheap-O case!

    It is grippy enough to keep the phone from sliding around on a table/counter?

    The matte finish back feels like very fine sandpaper and the "band" has a hard rubbery feel. When it first arrived the gloss part had a "tacky" feel to it which I didn't like but I think it was some goo left from manufacturing. It wore off after a couple of days and now I'm really liking the case. I assumed the matte back would scratch up a lot but it hasn't yet after over a month. No saggy edges either... I'd say it's no more/less grippy than a naked X back. I keep mine face down when not pocketed and the rubber bezel helps it stay put

    It was supposed to be temporary until something better came along but I think I'm just gonna stick with it. Definitely not a premium case but I'm not looking for a replacement.

    I have the Hyperion tpu case but found that dust particles would get inside and scratch up the piano black front and side edges. In now using the bear motion quicksand case, which has become my daily driver. I also have the seidio surface hard case but prefer the quicksand case.

    I purchased the case holster combo from Verizon and it fits nice no bulk and the ability to carry on my side is nice .

    I hope this isn't a re-post. I searched the thread first. Incipio is releasing a waterproof case for the moto x similar to lifeproof. I can't wait to check this out.

    I've been using the Cruzerlite Experience case but it's exhibiting the same problem I've had with prior cases by Cruzerlite like redeyss. Dust gets under the edges and then when I take it in and out of the pocket it starts to scratch up the sides of the phone. I have a white/blue X and it's pretty noticeable and annoying to me. My only other gripe is that it takes some stretching to get the case on and off but it does a good job on the front side with the lip that it has so it protects the screen when face down.

    I've ordered a Griffin Reveal and hopefully that will be better in regards to dust getting into the sides since there are fewer open spots on the case.

    I'll believe it when they actually hit store's. That would be the same Incipio that announced a battery case in August and never delivered.

    I too got the Black Hyperion TPU case for my Moto x (Royal Blue). The case is of real good quality. It has nice matte finish at the back and good grip as well. The free screen protector is of decent quality too.

    But, the black colour case does not go well with the Blue Moto X. In my case, with the cover on, entire phone is black and the dimple shows Royal Blue which is kind of ugly.

    Now, I am using my Cimo Blue case which is a perfect fit. The colour of the case matches it nicely. 10/10.

    I think that will happen with any TPU case. Taking the phone in and out of your pocket is going to force some particles under the case edges over time and that's what happens. Not sure how you get around that with any tight fitting case.

    That's true. I never noticed this issue until I saw my wife's N4 have it with her Cruzerlite cases. They left small marks all over the metal trim. I just never thought it was going to be that noticeable on the Moto X but I can live with it.

    I'd go with the Seidio case and holster combo. I have it and the Otterbox Defender and though it's easier to insert and remove it seems more secure and less apt to come out on its own.

    I agree. In the course of 1 year the retaining clip on my Otterbox (Galaxy Nexus) broke 3 times - leading to as many drops from 6-8'. My only disappointment with the Seidio holster is that it doesn't have a lock on the spring clip that they used to have on holsters for older devices. I can't see how this improves the quality or usability of the holster, so I assume it was removed for economic reasons.

    This is a disappointment. I bought the "Diztronic High Gloss Clear" case and it came being opaque instead of transparent.

    Realize this MIGHT be a tad expensive but I'm liking this belt case. http://tuff-as-nuts.com/Motorola-Moto-X-Belt-Case.aspx

    I had one of these for my Note 3 and it was excellent quality and build. Real leather. Company is based in New Zealand. I might try and see if my old one will be compatible size wise with the Moto X. If not I'll buy another one. I know size wise there is a difference but depending on the fit I may just use the one I have

    I wanted a case that could take a fall, and enough grip that it wouldn't easily fall out of a shirt pocket. The abuse resistance I needed for a teen daughter that has broken every device shes been given. I ordered 1 Trident Cyclops to try out and see if the wife and daughter liked it. Both approved, and I believe this thing can take a drop from any reasonable height and survive after it stops bouncing. A big plus was it doesn't massively bulk up the phone like the Otterbox's tend to do. Very happy with it after I ripped out the built in screen protectors.

    Question: what holster would anyone recommend. I'm in a wheelchair so putting the phone in my pocket isn't practible

    I have this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FIV...cUvbUpU3443435

    It's slippery, but works well enough. I had the same brand for my s3 and it was my everyday case.

    I'm really happy with the Otterbox commuter case I bought. It didn't make it as bulky as I thought it would. Seems pretty solid.
