Google Pixel 4 / Pixel 4 XL case roundup: Reviews of the best (and worst) cases out there (Updated)

Augmented reality is having a moment on Android. Thanks to ARCore, which now works on more than a dozen device models—Google says that's more than 100 million individual devices—we've seen a ton of new applications that insert virtual objects into our real surroundings.
