This case is light, has a nice, soft-touch feel, adds minimum bulk to the phone, and at $15, very reasonably priced. The side bumper is slightly raised on the front so that if you place your phone face down on a flat table or countertop, the glass will not touch the surface. If I were to be nitpicky I would say the design is not something I instantly loved, but I can live with it.I have the ""Just Black"" Pixel 2 XL. I think the phone (especially the back) looks fantastic. I would love to use it without a case. However, at this point in time (late January 2018), that does not seem like a viable option considering how expensive the phone is and the fact that there are no good tempered-glass screen protectors out for the phone at an affordable price. The situation being as such, I went for this case and am plenty satisfied.
