Can try Aukey, Anker. If you have a USB c laptop or desktop get the ones that can support usb 3.1 speed.

Sides. It's the best version ever use.

Hi,

just wanted to share my feedback on spigen casing as i recently bought the pixel 2 xl 128gb Black (from techbug )


1. Tough Armour
Pros
- Kickstand can be quite useful as the pixel 2 xl is wonderful for media consumption
- Cutouts are good (camera and usb c)
- Screen protection is good due to the lips of the casing
- No issues when removing from jeans
Cons
- Kinda bulky due to the two piece design (TPU + PC)
- The button (power and volume) little hard to press
- Does not affect the squeeze feature of google assistance
- The cutout for the rear fingerprint scanner is nice but since the casing is quite thick, you can noticed it when attempt to unlock
- Not easy to remove the casing if you have some OCD and wanted to remove some lint / dust that may get caught between the edges of the screen and the case
- For me, the back piece is kinda slippery and not really convincing when holding it in with one hand


2. Slim Armour
- even though it claims to be the slimmer of the tough armour, the feels and experience is the same as tough armour


3. Rugged Armour Extra
- This was my first casing that i bought and its still my main preferred casing
Pros
- The buttons are easier to press compared to tough and slim armour
- The back is more easier to grip, giving more confidence in holding it (there is some sandpaper feeling at the back, like the oneplus sandstone but not that rough..)
- All other cutout are good (camera and usb type c)
- No issues when removing casing from jeans or pocket
- Not a lint magnet
- Lip protection is good
- Not bulky compared to the slim armour
- The liquid they provided is not really a lot, so chances of the liquid to drip into the speaker grill is minimized

Cons
- No kickstand
- The camera and flash cutout are slightly bigger than the two above casing, hence more of the black glass is exposed.. so its easier to smudge the area there and its a pain if you have OCD


4. Nano Liquid
- I was debating whether to try this (snake oil? or really works) but why not?
Pros
- The process of applying it is easy and straight forward
- The materials used does not leave your fingers sticky
- Casing friendly!
- Tip : After you apply it to the front, you can also apply at the back (camera)
- Tip : Do it before you go to sleep, i know it mentioned that you can use the device after applying it but i think its better to let the coating do its work
- Tip : Wash your hands before applying it


After applying it, I noticed that
- fingerprints are not so obvious
- smudges are easier to clean
- touch screen are not affected
- no weird rainbow or dot matrix experience, the screen looks good
- the screen looks more glossy

My had rainbows but depending on temperature, it may disappear briefly. Couldn't get used to the "hollow" feeling of the glass as there is no adhesive on the front glass. Removed it.
