Textra is popular, gets great reviews, front-ends carrier texting only, not OTT as far as I know
Moto E = Not very tough. Dropped the phone on the cement and it's totally dead. 1 drop and it's dead.
Vertical lines through the screen and then death. Glad it was only $9.99
I dropped a full price one a month ago no case. The black ring split at the corner. I now have black electrical tape holding it together but the phones survived.
Has anyone pulled out the little paper opposite the SIM card? I'm really curious what it's for?
I hate to trash a brand new phone. I was hoping Hooterville would check it out with his broken one. I bought at least 6 from Best Buy over the weekend also two more being shipped. Yes I believe the case would have definitely saved that ring. The ring is definitely a weak point on the phone and the push button switches are on the ring. Wait till you see the case kind of nice and fits like a glove. OJ's glove! I can see some screens getting broken just putting on the case.
I set up a motorway for a teenage girl in town two months ago. It now has several light scratches on the screen. I would suggest a tempered glass screen saver.
I guess I have enough and can share my sources. I ordered too early Thanksgiving morning at bestbuy.com. some at Nashua New Hampshire Thanksgiving Day. I got more phones at Best Buy in Worcester and Auburn mass on Saturday.
