This case looks and feels pretty solid, with the added benefit of being cosmetically appealing. No case will guard a phone better than a protection plan, but this one gives me more confidence with the wrist strap for risky camera angles that I would otherwise not attempt.
I originally loved the look and feel of this case, and as such, I rated it 5 stars. This case lost 3 stars after only a week of use. Firstly, as other reviewers have started here, the volume and power button require too much force to depress. When I try to power-off the screen, I automatically activate the squeeze feature on the phone. I don't have this issue with the case off. Minus 1 star. Secondly, the low profile of these aforementioned buttons, paired with their black color, make it so hard to even find and press them in the dark. And I know EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE. This is a problem. Minus another star. Lastly, whenever I took a picture in the dark with the flash, every picture came out looking whitewashed. I thought it was the phone, and I was pissed. Two seconds away from calling Google to return this high-tech piece of junk Pixel 2 XL, I took the case off and tried it out. Beautiful picture. I put the case back on, and tried again. Whitewashed. Upon closer inspection, the back of the case seems to reflect the flash right back into the aperture. Is anybody else having this problem? This is an absurd quality control oversight for a phone case marketed toward picture-takers. Unacceptable. Minus 1 star. The case still looks and feels great, and still offers a fair bit of protection, but it comes at a high cost. Keep looking.
Look at the pretty pictures! 1. Flash on, case off. 2. Flash off. 3. Flash on, case on. God awful rubbish.
Drop it. We dare you. Our Photo Case brings the best of a camera (subtle grip, attachable lenses, and a strap) and combines it with the traditions of a super rugged case...all without the bulk. Designed by the photographers at Moment this case is meant to be used. A lot. The front edges are raised so that your screen is protected. The double wall construction provides compression when your gear hits the ground. The bottom is fully enclosed to provide additional protection. The strap attachment makes it easy to add a wrist or neck strap to your phone. While the Moment Lens interface enables you to pop in a beautiful M-series lens. If you want photography and protection, this case is for you.
