Motorola announced their latest mid-range smartphone, the Moto G5 Plus, at the Mobile World Congress in February, this year. The latest iteration of the Moto G family of smartphones comes with a Snapdragon 625, 4 GB of RAM, with a 5.2″ Full HD IPS LCD display, 3000mAh battery, and a 12 MP rear camera, all packed inside a metal body. Needless to say, the phone looks good, and is one of the top contenders for the mid segment smartphone market. So, if you’re planning on buying the Moto G5 Plus, and you want to keep it safe from the elements, here are the 10 best Moto G5 Plus cases and covers you can buy:
1. SPARIN Moto G5 Plus Clear Case

Plus, the air-cushioned corners in the case are sure to keep your phone safe from drops.
