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:
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 attribute this to deformations in storage/shipping. With a night or two left charging with the phone upside down (flip down), the flip has become more perfectly flat and now the magnet holds no problem.
Bottom line: If you have a MOTO G, order one of these. You won't regret it.
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.
That said, even without the front cover, this is a hugely better back for your Moto G than the one that came with it. It has a nice rubbery feel with a non-slip texture both front and back. It's mildly thicker than the original back, just enough so the camera is recessed just a bit rather than being flush with the back. This is something I really like, as it means the camera lens is less likely to get scratched by being laid down on a surface. The case does add a tiny bit of bulk to what was already a thin phone, but definitely not enough to make the phone feel really bulky, or to make it hard to slip in a pocket. The inside of the flip cover is a nice soft velvety material that won't scratch your screen.
All in all, not only will this protect your screen, but it'll make your phone look and feel a little less cheap and more high-end than the factory-installed back shell. I never really write reviews unless a product either really impresses me or really disappoints me. This one really impressed me. If you're looking for a simple, cheap, attractive upgrade for your Moto G, this is one that's worth getting. Buy in confidence.
Today I think Google has turned Motorola around. The MotoX and MotoG being the first two new phones produced from Googlorola and two fine phones they are. This flip case is a great add on to the MG. Built of a quality plastic that feels grippy in the hand, protects the screen in the pocket and that turns the screen on and off when the cover is opened and closed.
I agree with some others that this flip case is a bit over priced, but also wish there was a flip case just like it for the MotoX.
I'm very happy with the flip cover. So will you.
