Best cases for the BlackBerry Motion

It's early, but we're starting to see some promising cases for the BlackBerry Motion emerge.

The BlackBerry Motion is starting to roll out to lucky owners (O' Canada!) , which means that its time to take a look at cases to keep that brand new phone safe.

At launch, the pickings for Motion cases are fairly slim — there are a couple cheap options available on Amazon but we can't recommend them just yet, so buyers beware.

However, there are a handful that we can recommend for all you early adopters, and we'll be updating this article as new options emerge. Here are the best cases for the BlackBerry Motion so far!

Incipio DualPro Case

The DualPro case by Incipio is essentially Incipio's flagship case which they make for nearly all major phones released, including the BlackBerry Motion.

This is a classic case style with no frills or unnecessary accents — just a two-layer case designed to protect your phone protected from drops. The interior is made of shock absorbing TPU while the outer shell is made of rigid polycarbonate with a soft touch finish. Available in all-black for $29.99, this is a reliable case with a classic look.

If you're looking for something with a bit more flash and style, Incipio will also has a Carnaby Esquire Series case available soon, so you may want to keep your eye on that one.

See at Amazon

CoverOn FlexGuard Series Case

For those looking for a cheaper, one-piece case you might want to consider the CoverOn FlexGuard series case. Available for just $8, this case is made of flexible TPU which means that it's easy to put on and will absorb the shock of any drops or impacts so your phone doesn't.

Featuring a simple minimalist look and feel including a raised bevel around the front to protect the screen, this is a slim and lightweight case that's available in your choice of black or as a clear case.

BlackBerry Cases

Longtime BlackBerry fans know that typically some of the best cases for BlackBerry phones are offered by BlackBerry itself, and that appears to be the case with the BlackBerry Motion.

There are two case styles available for the Motion on the BlackBerry Mobile website — the Privacy FlipCase and a classic Hard Shell case.

We've featured the Privacy FlipCase because it's the most intriguing option because it's packed with awesome features like a transparent flip cover that leaves the touchscreen fully functional with the cover closed while also doubling as a privacy shield that limits your screen's viewing angle so you don't have any looky-loos on your daily commute trying to sneak a peak at your screen. There's also a built-in card slot on the back to help free up some space in your wallet.

So far we've only found these cases available for sale from a UK-based online store, but you can also also register for availability updates from the BlackBerry Mobile website.

  6. From this menu, you are able to tweak all the notification settings for that specific app.
    • To block all notifications, tap the switch next to Block all. You won't be bothered by notifications from this app unless you go back in and turn them back on.
    • If you still want to receive the notifications in the notification shade, but don't want to be distracted by them, tap the switch next to Show silently. Your notifications will still collect in the notification shade without making a sound or vibration, and without peeking into view while you're looking at something else on your phone.
    • Tap On the lock screen to set the content displayed on lock screen notifications. By default, all notification content is shown, but you have the option to hide sensitive notification content or turn off lock screen notifications altogether.
    • If you haven't silenced notifications, you also have the option to prioritize an app's notifications to override Do Not Disturb mode.

If you have the time, you can go through every app on your phone so that only the most important notifications get your immediate attention throughout the day.

How to use widgets on the BlackBerry KEYone

How to set up and use widgets on the BlackBerry KEYone?

Home screen widgets are extensions of apps that live on your home screen and give you valuable information like an easy-to-read clock, day calendars, weather updates, control music, and much more at a glance. All available widgets are stores in one convenient place, and adding them to your home screen is a great way to customize the look of your BlackBerry KEYone while also adding extra functionality to your phone.

How to add widgets to the BlackBerry KEYone

  1. Long press on the home screen.
  2. Tap Widgets.
  3. You'll see all available widgets based on the apps installed on your phone. Swipe to scroll through the list.

  4. When you've found a widget you want to add to your home screen, tap and hold.

  5. Continue to hold as you find a place for your widget. If it won't fit on your main home screen, drag it to the edge of the screen to flip over to the next screen.
  6. Once you've got it placed where you want it, release to set the widget.

Depending on the widget, it might take a few minutes for it to refresh with the latest info. You can remove a widget from your home screen the same way you remove app icons.
