ALLAAH is great
1) Surah Al-Waqia, Verse 79:
لَّا يَمَسُّهُ إِلَّا الْمُطَهَّرُونَ

Which none shall touch but those who are clean:
(English – Yusuf Ali)

Al Quddus (The pure, The Holy) revealed this verse relating to the lauhe mahfooz(The preserved tablet)
But this is verse also applicable for the Quran we have 
In the letter of ‘Amr ibn Hazm that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) sent to the people of Yemen, in which its says: “NO ONE SHOULD TOUCH THE QUR’AAN EXCEPT ONE WHO IS IN A STATE OF PURITY.”

Maalik, 468; Ibn Hibbaan 793; Al-Bayhaqi 1/87;

(2)The General rule is whosoever is not in wudu should not touch the Quran 

But they can recite the Quran except the one who is in major impurity. 

(a)It was narrated that ‘Abdullah bin Salamah said: “I entered upon ‘Ali bin Abu Talib and he said: ‘The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to go to the lavatory and relieve himself, then come out, and he would eat bread and meat with us and recite Quran, nothing stopped him’ or perhaps he said: ‘prevented him from doing so except sexual impurity.

Hasan (Darrusalam)

Ibn majah 594;Abu Dawood 229;Tirmidhi 146;

(b)Narrated “Ali (may ALLAAH be pleased with him)
The Prophet (ﷺ) used to teach us the Qur’an except when he was in a state of sexual impurity.

Bulugh al-Maram 116

—>From the above it is clear that whosoever is not in wudu, they can’t touch the Quran but if they are in minor impurity they can recite the Quran and if they are in majority impurity they should not recite Quran.
••• All the àbove is for Quran in musaf form that is physical book form
3.) Now a days smartphones have emerged and Alhamdulillah we can recite the Quran with ease, if someone is not in wudu yet they can touch the mobile phone and recite the Quran except major impurity where he/she can touch the mobile phone but should not read Quran 
***Here is opinion of leading scholar regarding this topic 
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) was asked: I am keen to read Qur’aan and I am usually in the mosque early and I have one of these modern mobile phones with me on which there is a program containing the entire Holy Qur’aan. Sometimes I am not in a state of purity but I read what I can and I read some juz’. Is purity essential when reading from a mobile phone? 
He replied: This is a kind of luxury that has appeared among the people. Mus-hafs – praise be to Allaah – are readily available in the mosques and in fine printed editions, and there is no need to read it from mobile phones. But if that happens then we do not think that it comes under the same ruling as the Mus-haf.  
The Mus-haf cannot be touched by anyone but one who is pure, as it says in the hadeeth, “No one should touch the Qur’aan but one who is pure.”  As for a mobile phone, it cannot be called a Mus-haf. 

Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 32:

قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ لَا عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلَّا مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

They said: “Glory to Thee, of knowledge We have none, save what Thou Hast taught us: In truth it is Thou Who art perfect in knowledge and wisdom.”
(English – Yusuf Ali)
