The Google Pixel 2 has a lot of great features. It's waterproof, the camera is fantastic, and it runs a simple, easy-to-use version of Android.
But one of the things I like most about the Pixel 2 has nothing to do with the phone itself, but rather with the new phone cases.
Of course, case options are not a good enough reason to buy a phone. There are hundreds of thousands of companies that make cases, and chances are you can find something you like from a third party.
