The Moto G is undoubtedly one of the best “cheap” phones out there. It retails for $179 or $199 depending on the storage size you choose. Which normally for phones in that price range you’re getting a single-core processor, and a qHD display. But not with the Moto G. Instead your getting a 720p 4.5-inch display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 2070mAh battery. Oh and did I mention KitKat is already being pushed out to it?
At the Moto G launch event, Motorola did show us some of their plans for the Moto G. Which includes removable back covers and grip shells for the device. Today, those grip shells went on sale, on Motorola’s site. They are available in five different colors. That’s Chalk, Black, Royal Blue, Lemon Lime, and Cherry. All five colors are listed as in stock right now and are selling for $19.99 a piece.
So what’s so different about these compared to the normal removable back covers? Well the grip shells have a rubber bumper which protects your device, as well as, allowing you to get a better grip on your phone, so you won’t drop it. Which is always a good idea to have. Remember that the back covers are removable, so you can use different colors, and buy a few of these shells to go on your Moto G. It may not be as cool as the Moto X’s back colors, but thee you can change anytime you want. While the Moto X you’re stuck with your colors, unless you decide to buy a new Moto X.
At the time of writing this, the Moto G Grip Shells are only available on Motorola’s website. But I’m sure they’ll make their way to Amazon and other retailers that are selling the Moto G, very soon. How many of you have picked up a Moto G from Amazon, Google Play, Verizon, Best Buy, or even Motorola’s website?
