Review: Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone 12 Case (supports adding a wrist strap!)

At the time of writing (Nov. 2020), the new Moment Cases for iPhone 12 that support attaching a wrist strap are available for preorder and will ship only in March 2020.

As this is still a few months away, I needed an interim solution and looked for an iPhone 12 Pro Max case supporting a wrist strap. Surprisingly, even in the 13th iPhone year, finding such a case is still a difficult task. But luckily, I discovered the Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone case - and it allows you to attach a wrist strap!

So I ordered it, and here's my Mous Limitless 3.0 Review.

The Mous Limitless 3.0 is made from poly-carbonate

The case is made from polycarbonate, and it's available in 5 different finishes - from Aramid Fiebre (the one that I have), leather, bamboo, walnut to white leather.

That case itself feels sturdy and a bit stiffer than the Moment case. It feels a bit more sturdy than the Moment case. Mous says they use a patented technology called Airoshock to provide first-class protection for your iPhone in case it drops. On their YouTube Channel, they published a pretty impressive video where they drop iPhones protected by their cases from a balloon. See for yourself:

 

Additional Features of the Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone Case

There are three notches in the case that will hold a sim-tray pin plus two nano sim-cards as a bonus. As an eSim user, I probably won't use these that much. Oh, and the case ships with a sim-tray pin included.

The Mous Limitless 3.0 case has a feature similar to MagSafe that Apple introduced with the iPhone12. Mous calls it AutoAlign. With this feature, you can attach your iPhone magnetically to e.g., a vent-holder in your car, and there's even a Mous wallet you can attach to the case. According to the website, AutoAlign is not fully compatible with MagSafe in terms of alignment. But you'll still get fast wireless charging through the case. As of writing this, I'm charging my iPhone 12 Pro Max using an Anker PowerWave Pad I got from Amazon. I didn't notice that the iPhone charges any slower with the Limitless 3.0 case.

Attaching a Wrist Strap to the Mous 3.0 Limitless

The eyelets for attaching a wrist strap are located on the right side of the case, and they're a little smaller than the ones on the Moment case. So you may want to use a wrist strap with a thinner loop. I could not use the Moment Wrist Strap, but a spare wrist strap from my Olight flashlights worked great.

In this photo, the lower loop is from the Moment wrist strap, and the upper loop is the one from Olight.

Verdict

So far, I'm totally happy with the Mous Limitless 3.0 Case for my iPhone 12 Pro Max. It feels sturdy and allows me to attach a wrist strap. That's what I was looking for. I feel confident using this case for taking photos until the Moment Case arrives, which I need for attaching the Moment Lenses. Most likely, I'll keep this one as a backup.

You can get the Mous Limitless 3.0 Case for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro directly from Amazon. Of course, Amazon also has a Limitless 3.0 Case for the iPhone 12 Pro Max
