    Didn't get a Moto maker phone though. Just got a black one.
    Then maybe it's not entirely relevant to you. But to others with Moto Maker phones or who want to add colors to their phone in the same way as the Air Jacket Grip, it might matter.

    The best case is the one that comes in the box. NONE.
    Oh, please not this. Not everyone wants to go around not wanting to protecting their devices they (likely how I did as well) spent hundreds on. It feels wonderful without case, but I know it's not something I would do on a regular basis outside of my home.

    Maybe if it was cheaper, that thing is $34 bucks.

    I would LOVE not to have a case but these damn phones are just too expensive for ME Znot to protect.

    When I take the case off of my GS3 I love how it feels, but it must stay protected so the case goes back on.

    Use code THANKS for 30% off accessories. It was showing on the Moto Maker page where you customize. It's also shown here:

    Because the manufacturer of that case is one of the most well-respected in the accessories industry when it comes to cases and screen protector. Not to mention the fact its products are designed and made in Japan

    I'll pay more for a good case. It's cheaper than replacing the phone

    I tried the Diztronic but didn't like the edges around the screen or the clear frost color so got the Anker Minimalistic and absolutely love it. It's close to no case but does provide some protection and the same amount of grip as the phone itself.

    Anybody find a leather slipcase, ala Beyza or Sena (not for the Moto X yet)? You know the ones where you have to slip the phone out every time you use it. That way it's always bare in your hand but doesn't get scratched in your pocket (front or back). I'd like to be able to see the cool back color and stuff, not cover it with cheapo plastic.

    It doesn't look like that one covers the corners of the phone - at least on the front. I think that's the most important place to be protected for keeping the screen intact in a drop.

    Is the bear motion case Sandy case similar? Added the bear motion to my wishlist.

    I got a Fosman TPU case today. Sides are clear, back is frosted. It fits very snugly, and very well. Cutout placements are dead-on. Thin and good looking. I don't remember the price, but is was less than $10 with shipping from Amazon. I also received a black rubber front, white plastic-rear bumper case from Amazon. I like that one too, I think it was like $7, maybe another $6 or so to ship. Shipping is high, but I like the bumper, and the cost was low.

    I feel like the TPU case offers better scratch protection, and better protection for the camera, but the bumper case probably offers better protection for drops, especially corner hits.

    Great, cheap cases abound on eBay. I don't understand why people buy expensive cases, but to each there own.

    Same here I don't buy any case over $12-15 unless it's a otterbox. I'm thinking of throwing down the cash for the otterbox commuter.

    The Anker and Bear Motion are identical cases. There is another by Areser that doesn't have the logo on the back.

    The only cases I have ever felt truly took away from the overall experience of any device are the otter boxes. If you aren't in construction, fireman, policeman or something similar, they make phone more difficult to use.

    I got the ballistic sg maxx and the lighter ballistic case. Cant remember the name of it right now. I had the ballistic SG maxx on my GS3 and I really liked it. The phone is still like new after 18 months of use. Now if I could just get my cyber monday moto x de (vzw) to show up in my mailbox...sigh...

    Not for me, used a otterbox for my RAZR M. Made my phone invincible.

    I agree. I find it hard to type in my wife's 4s with her Otterbox. She's had a Defender and a Commuter and my daughter has a Defender for her iPod Touch. All off them are well protected but those cases look terrible before long. The rubber part stretches and sags. Especially over the home button the iPod. The port covers tear, and the hard plastic develops cracks especially near the charge port.

    That said I might get one for the X for the sole purpose of using on my bike mount. I don't care if it stays perfect for that use case. The price is cheaper than they used to be, but I'll be looking at alternatives too.

    I had the ballistic case on my GS3 with port covers for about a year and no issues. They kind of stretch out and dont always stay put inside the ports, but never tore or even thought about tearing. I swear by ballistic cases over otterbox any day. Better case for 1/2 of the price...just sayin...
