Fits the phone perfectly and looks very nice.
W Burroughs
The exterior of the case has a tactile feel to it which makes gripping and holding the phone much easier than with the original smooth and some what slippery back.
Adrian Shallow
Magnetic closure works great to hold the cover closed and to wake up the phone when you open the cover (just like my iPad).

First of all, let me say, I have always been the kind of person never to spend this much on an accessory. But from other sources online, I figured I would give this a shot. 15% of the phone's cost on a case was pushing it, but I think it was well worth it. Read on:

The back of the flip shell attaches to the back of the phone as a new battery cover. The back cover is thicker than the MOTO G's original back, providing more protection, and is also textured. The textured surface covers the whole external of the case. I really like the feel. It's similar to a cloth band-aid in texture.

The inside of the flip cover is flat and felt-like but not plush. It will protect the screen well. The magnet in the flip works great and just as expected, removing the need to fumble for the power button to wake the phone. The slot for the speaker at the top of the flip also allows the notification light to shine through it whilst closed. Very useful.

Overall, the case was well worth it for me. I see the MOTO G as a revolutionary device for the price range and the flip shell bumps the usability enough to justify the cost. It is sleek, elegant and functional. Also- very well made, which is expected of a factory case. The lines are clean cut, everything lines up perfect. Not "good enough" or "hardly noticeable difference" which I have become to expect from the aftermarket. Everything is perfect.

A couple points to note:
1. Price!
2. The hinge for the flip is a 2-ply of the cloth which covers the outside and inside of the flip. Nice and flexible and not resistive to opening, but it does allow for the flip to twist and slide over the screen whilst the flip is closed.
3. At first the magnet wouldn't keep the flip closed whilst upside down.

I agree with all of the positive reviews here. No need to reitterate.

I did want to point out one thing in case it helps with your buying decision. There is an area of the original phone that is not protected by this case. If you look at the photos where the cover is closed, you will see a black ring that goes around the phone. This part of the original phone case and it is exposed even when the flip shell is exposed. This part of the phone cannot be replaced if it gets damaged.

I wanted to point this out as I had a minor drop on my phone, and this exact area is what got dinged. This shell does not protect this area of the phone.

Again, not saying this is good or bad. I just wanted point this out so you could make a more informed buying decision. There are other shells which do protect this area of the phone. One of which is also made by motorolla called the "grip shell". The tradeoff is that the grip shell does not have a front cover, which is probably why you looked at this one in the first place.

Okay, this is not going to protect your phone against serious fumbles, but the cover will help protect the screen and since the shell can be replaced most other damage will probably be limited to cosmetic. I really like how opening/closing the cover turns the screen on/off. The texture helps improve my grip on an phone that already fits will in the hand. And finally of course, this shell won't turn your sleek new phone into a big lump of rubber in your pocket.

I finally got my royal blue flip shell. Didn't really get the texture of the cover from photos till I actually had it on hand.

Hands-on:
- The packaging looks ok enough, no box, though. And the package came in a mail-in envelope, so you can easily imagine the thin packaging.
- There's a magnetic tab to keep the cover flip secured on the phone screen, you can see it on the inside of the shell.
- The small slot for the speakers is wide enough so you can see the notice flashing light.
- You can fold back the flip to for one-handed use, however, I'm not sure it's a good practice. Will it make the hinge "over-worked" and broken from use after a short time? We will have to wait and see.

Pros:
1. The texture gives it a more secured feeling on your hand in comparison to the original black shell.
2. The shell replaces the original one so no extra thickness on the main surface. But the texture and the contrast of black and colorful shell will trick your eyes on thickness so it somehow looks thicker.
3. The flip cover fits perfectly on the phone screen and gives it protection.

Cons:
1. The hinge gives a little extra on the side of the phone (hence, if you try to put the phone back to the original package with the shell on, it will not fit).
2. Someone already mentioned about the felt-like lining. It easily collects humidity and dust.
3. The flip fits perfectly on the screen and doesn't get open easily. However, it "slides" on the surface and move around a bit. So be careful.
4. Price. Yes, even with the good quality, it's way overpriced. I like other color shells (I'm a girl and it is said that it's our privilege to change our minds). The purple looks fun and the aqua looks very trendy.
