Motorola switched from metal to glass for this year’s Moto G. It means the Moto G6 is stunning compared to its predecessors, but you’re also dealing with a less durable material. So you might want to slap a case onto your phone to protect it from potential damage. Fear not, though. Our top picks for the Moto G6 are as stylish as they are protective.

Here are some of the best cases for the Motorola Moto G6.

Cimo Protective

  • Price: $8, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Matte Black, Matte Purple, Matte Smoke

Cimo’s case offers middle-of-the-road protection. Made from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), the case will definitely deflect sharp objects and withstand average drops. The material should be able to absorb shock so the glass remains intact. Even though the Moto G6 is an affordable phone, you still deserve to have it stay in mint condition.

The colors to choose from are somewhat bland, but you do get three that match just about any style. Each shade also plays off the phone’s black and gold colors nicely, too. For less than $10, you can’t complain about getting decent protection even with a limited color selection.

  • Price: $8, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Blue Flower, Don’t Touch My Phone, Gear Wheel, Love Tree

The multi-layered case is nothing new, but LEEGU adds some personality to it. So you get both protection and style from a single accessory that’s only $8 with free shipping.

LEEGU sells this case in three artsy colors, and there’s another choice but it’s humorous more than anything else. It has a grumpy face with the caption “Don’t Touch My Phone” stamped near the bottom. As for the artsy colors, they range from a floral arrangement to a vibrant tree to a collection of intricate gears.

Its two-piece design gives you TPU and polycarbonate (PC) separately. The TPU absorbs shock in case your Moto G6 takes a fall, and the PC shields it from scratches. LEEGU adds a smooth, rubberized coating to keep the Moto G6 comfortable to hold.

  • Price: $12, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Gravel Black, Gravel Green, Smooth Black, Smooth Blue, Smooth Gold, Smooth Red, Smooth Rose Gold, Smooth Silver

The cases you’ve seen with barely-there thickness can be hit or miss. Too many brands are using cheap materials that break down quickly.

Anccer, however, makes a premium ultra-thin case for the Moto G6 that lasts. The case from its Colorful series is ultra-thin but protective to an extent. While you won’t get much in terms of drop durability, Anccer’s case will prevent scratches from accruing over time.

If you rarely drop stuff, the Colorful case is for you. Anccer also lets you choose from eight colors in gravel or smooth varieties.

Poetic Guardian

  • Price: $17, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Black, Blue, Green, Pink

Poetic makes a serious case for the Moto G6. Best of all, it doesn’t really look big and bulky. The brand also lets you choose from a few colors. While most protection-focused cases add an enormous amount of heft, Poetic’s gets the job done in a reasonable size.

From its Guardian series, this case boasts complete protection in a unique design. Aside from putting giving coverage to the back and frame, Poetic goes all-out with a built-in screen protector. You’re even getting flaps over the ports on the Moto G6 to keep water and dust out. Poetic is charging more than what most cases go for, but this is the best protection you’ll find for the Moto G6.

AraeLeather Wallet

  • Price: $11, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Black

As lazy as it sounds, we don’t like carry many things around. Arae’s Leather Wallet case lets you leave your wallet/purse behind because it has pockets to carry the essentials.

While holding (and shielding) the Moto G6, the case stores credit/debit cards, IDs, and cash. Those are the most important things you need when going somewhere.

The Leather Wallet case from Arae is particularly appealing because of how much it can store. Most cases like it have one or two slots, Arae includes five. All of them are easy to access for when a card or ID needs to be whipped out fast.

Arae didn’t stop there, though. The case’s cover doubles as a kickstand. Just prop up your Moto G6, and now you have a better experience for watching videos.

OEAGOUltra-Slim Skin

  • Price: $5, eligible for Prime shipping
  • Color(s): Black, Clear, Purple, Mint

Just looking for that on-the-cheap protection? OEAGO sells a TPU-based case that’s $5 with free shipping, and you have four colors to choose from.

The case won’t handle the biggest of drops, but you won’t have to fret if the Moto G6 meets the ground from a reasonable distance. You also won’t have to worry about anything scratching the glass back. Meanwhile, OEAGO allowed for some transparency to let the Motorola logo shine through.
