10 Best Moto G4 and G4 Plus Protective Cases and Covers

Last Updated: July 5, 2016

Budget-friendly Android devices aren’t what they used to be and for that, you can thank the Moto G line-up. The Moto G was arguably the first device to pack in decent specifications at a price that didn’t break the bank and while the competition has caught up, the Moto G devices continue to evolve. The Lenovo-owned company recently outed the 4th gen Moto G devices, with the Moto G4 Plus being the best of the lot. The device packs in some great specs like a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 1.7 GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP front cam and a 3,000 mAh battery.
