Shopping around for a case for my soon to have XR. I purchase my phones outright with no protection plan so looking for the best rugged case that will easily handle accidental drops to protect my phone. I will be adding a screen protector as well. I'd like to still be able to utilize the wireless charging if possible as well if not no worries, main concern is protecting the phone. I don't have a whole lot of experience with all the different cases available so if anyone can recommend some to look at I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Looks like I might just give the OtterBox Commuter a try. I know it's bulky but looks like it will provide really good protection.

Ran into reviews of the Mous Limitless 2.0, which seems like a very sturdy case. Specifically really paid attention to it from MobileReviewEh’s long YouTube review (which contains a larger discount code) and then checked out other YouTuber’s reviews on it. Seems to be a contender for sturdy case with some useful accessories (but they seem pretty expensive). Sounds like the Mous has some grip, but not a lot compared to the real grippy cases.

There’s one thread complaining about quality and customer service. But it seems like a Mous employee has joined the forum and sounds like the problem is being taken care of..

When I checked out Mous website, the a few of the XR versions is on sale, and the coupon code seems to apply too.. I’m tempted to pick up the wallet sleeve thing and the car mount as well...

Loopy Case seems interesting to me as well, but looks to be no-go for wireless charging.

Thanks, I'll take a look at them as well. I have a Spigen tough armor on my current 6 plus and it has held up pretty good so far but want something with a little more protection.

So I did a search on this subforum for Mous Limitless 2.0 but there's not too many feedback. From what I could gather, sounds like the case is solid but may be a little slippery, specially the back.

Main benefit is the drop protection. The drop test videos I watched late last night was impressive.

Another feature of the case are the magnets on the back. Not sure if many people have it on here as I don't see mentions of owning it (unless I missed them). From the videos, seems like the car vent mount could be useful and the 2 different wallet attachments. The lip on the sides are curved down so towards the middle of the screen, there's not much of a lip in the middle. Some comment it makes swiping the phone from the middle as if there's no side lip. Also helps make the phone with case not feel so big when held in the middle.

The Mous Limitless 2.0 XR version comes out to $32.50 for me including shipping and coupon code. There's some designs that's currently discounted for the XR. Makes it tempting to me! Personally, I prefer more of a slimmer case (but not "skin" thin) and the 2.0 looks bulkier than what I'm used to. The 2.0 with the accessories really interest me, but more than I want to spend if I get the 2 accessories I'm interested in. If its just the case by itself, I'm much less tempted (but still slightly tempted)..


Personally, the dealbreaker for me may be if the Mous 2.0 is slippery. I prefer grippier (and slimmer) cases. I've owned a Caselogy Armor case for the iphone 8 and just found it too heavy and large compared to my go to brand Zugu/Zoogue (but they don't make cases for the newer iphones). For reference, the current cases I'm also considering is the Loopy Case and the Caudabe Sheath. Both seems not as drop proof. It sounds like most people have positive experience with the Sheath and mention good grip. The Loopy Case is just something so different..and sounds like there's no danger of the phone falling off you hand if you finger is in the loop.
