So with all the comparisons, NO, the moto g case will not work on the moto x. Lol

I'm revisiting this just to share my experience. My phone was in its ram mount case and the boat capsized. After righting the boat, there was some fog inside the case but the phone was working fine. Within an hour it became too hot to touch and bricked. When i applied for a warranty claim i rolled the dice and said no water damage. Luckily, I got a new one for free from moto, no problems.

After that mishap, I started researching cases some more. I'm purchasing an Armor-X universal. Its rated IPX8 which means its certified to work underwater. I'll post again after I've tried it.

I thought the G and X were supposed to be water resistant anyways? Wasn't there videos of them being put in water for like 30 minutes and working just fine when they were taken out?

I bought the Overboard case. It's far from perfect -- basically a hardened, buoyant Ziploc bag with a lanyard and carabiner -- but it does the job.
