    The initial case selection overall seems to be mediocre for this device.
    Understatement to be sure.

    But sales volume drives product development. Even after a year the number for items available for the Moto X (2014) is still limited in comparison to the sales leading phones from Samsung and iPhone. Part of the problem is Motorola's slow release of sales data. But a bigger part is this phone is not going to attract the customer who doesn't want to have to do much of anything. I doubt the fact that it is not being sold by the carriers is a significant sales factor. Prior models were not displayed well or pushed by the sales staff.

    I ended up getting this one. Got the same case as on my Nexus 6 and it's well made, provides much improved grip while adding little bulk.

    That's the Supcase on amazon. I had it on my slippery M8 and it was my favorite. A very good choice for those that are shopping.

    If I was a case manufacturer I'd make a couple of really good cases and then charge out the arse for them. But I'm a greedy capitalist.

    This is what should have been included from the start instead of that cheap clear crap.

    Yeah it looks sturdy enough but why wouldn't they make this in clear so you didn't have cover up the custom trim colors

    It's about time. This is exactly what I was waiting to be made available. I usually run around nekkid but this is the case I prefer to use when I feel like I might need one.

    I don't know that a big thick rubber/plastic ring around the phone would do anything to let you truly enjoy the edge trim color. A big fat ring is a big fat ring.

    Wish someone would make a bumper similar to the one Google made for Nexus 4. That, or if casemate made just a plain white one that's shaped like the clear one that phone came with. Except you know, better fitting and made from hard rubber or soft plastic, or TPU, etc. Case selection has been really disappointing for this phone so far.

    The side is rubber, so it adds grip.

    The hula bumper was great and is exactly the reason I went to the moto site and bought the Casemate Bumper......

    I don't think the corners are bare, I think they are just clear. I like having the buttons covered up myself.
    I prefer cutouts for the buttons. If they have a covering, they seem to be too easy to press.

    I find that the Pure runs too warm to hot to put a case on it and not allow heat dissipation. I got my case in and was using it, but found the device ran much warmer. If I avoid GPU heavy apps, no heat issues. I did not buy the device though just for light/medium use, so went back to the bumper. IF perhaps I decide to keep the Pure, I will drill holes in the back of the case to allow heat out. It is one of the clear plastic cases. Due to significant battery drain and heat issues with VR apps and some games, I have processed an RMA for return on Monday. Weekend debate.

    I received this case today, have to say I think I'm going to like it. The frosted back allows the color of the back of the phone to show through, and the edges are "grippier" than the bumper that came with the phone. I wasn't sure I'd like the power & volume buttons covered, but actually for me it's easier to press the buttons than with the uncovered-button style of the MXPE supplied bumper.

    This case provides decent protection but isn't the armor style protection of some cases nor is it the floppy rubbery style of some TPU cases. I ordered mine direct from Incipio before it was listed on Amazon; several color choices (back & bumper, but it is a one-piece unit) are available via Incipio, maybe on Amazon also by now.

    I also ordered one. I notice you said "pre order" I didn't see anything about a delayed shipping date. Did you?
