    A literal love or hate relationship

    I had run across so many people who loved their pop socket that I just had to try it. When I found myself holding my phone around the socket, instead of using it, I knew it wasn’t for me. I have since bought a much larger phone, so I may try it again. But my first try wasn’t so spectacular as I’d hoped. My sales guy agreed that people either loved them or hated them. He happened to really love his. So, worth a try? Sure. But be aware, the “installation” directions on the package aren’t very good. You do need to take the clear plastic “cover” off to adhere the socket to your phone. This might be obvious to some people, but I struggled for a while. The directions don’t mention the plastic. They only show popping it out of the package and attaching it to your phone. There was a little bit of the sticky beyond the plastic, and removing the plastic felt like I was doing something I wasn’t supposed to. (As in going against the way the device was actually designed.) I personally think they need to re-write the directions to be more clear. How many people return the devices because, like me, they didn’t realize there was more to installation than what was pictured? I’m going to say I wouldn’t recommend this product, but only because my experience wasn’t as amazing as I would have liked. It might be just what you’re looking for though...

    Great Idea, Horrible Application

    So, I finally jumped on the pop socket bandwagon, and against my better judgment, spent like $14 on this pretty iridescent pink one. Sure, it was cute. I did quickly love the way I could handle my phone by the pop socket extended. I also purchased the holder for my vehicle dash. So, everything was all good until, for absolutely not reason at all, the thing just fell off one, literally in my lap. I was not pulling or tugging on it, or somehow handling it that might make the adhesive want to break free. So, here we have the whole root of the problem with these things. It is a wonderful concept and they DO want you to be able to it around "up to 3 times." But, I can tell you, it wont last through 3 fall off's. After the first sudden release, I was so glad I wasnt just holding onto the socket and not my phone, but two, they are wayyyyy to expensive to have such crappy, adhesive. I felt it and it was hardly sticky at all. I wont buy another.

    This pop socket is awful. I have had nothing but trouble with this pop socket and it has not stayed on the back of the phone even though installed as per the recommendations. I have put it back on many times and it continues to pile up so I finally gave up and just tossed it I would not recommend this to anyone who is looking for a pop socket I don’t know if there’s any other brands but this particular product has not been worth the money that I paid for it so once again I would not recommend this product to anyone

    This is 3rd popsocket I have purchased for my IPhone SE. The 1st one broke after only 2 months and 2nd one came apart after about 30 days?? Of course Best Buy would not stand behind them, stating that they will only replace for first 14 days of ownership! Very poor policy and now my purchases are moving across state line to Nebraska Furniture Mart! Purchased a Beats ear phones from NFM and did not use them in first 30 days. When did charge them up, they only worked one time and NFM said it was past their in store return policy; however, they said "don't worry" and replaced them! Thank you NFM!!

    I'm surprised.. The brand popsocket is very impressive on how I could take it on an off and the sticky lasted a long time. I just got this new at best buy almost a week ago and it just fell off an there is no stickiness at all to put back on. I would still recomend the brand popsocket. Just the one I picked Is defective

    Doesn't stick well to case--falls off too easily

    Does not stick well to my Otterbox Defender case -- falls off too easily & often. Falls off for no reason -- I don't even pull or tug on it. Poor quality adhesive -- barely sticky. This thing caused my phone to fall out my hand too many times. Not worth the risk of my phone breaking from all the falls from this thing. Sorry to say, I would not recommend this PopSocket if you plan to use it on Otterbox case.

    WON'T STICK TO LIFEPROOF CASE

    I have had SEVERAL popsockets over the last 2 years and I have never had a problem with them sticking and staying on my lifeproof until now. With the new "Swappable popgrips" the design of the bottom part that adheres to your phone was changed and now these new and "improved" popsockets will not stick to lifeproofs OR silicone cases. It is REALLY disappointing after becoming addicted to having these on my phone.

    I love the pop-sockets, they are great for a bedtime phone user like myself, however the one I grabbed off shelf for this item did not last but two days before the glue continued to separate from my case--I had worried that it was the case itself that the glue would not adhere, but when I purchase the same product from another vendor, it has worked now for weeks. Overall the pop-sockets are a great investment, but I just happened to get a really bad apple out of the bunch.

    impractical

    First and foremost, this thing adds significant bulk to the iPhone. You cannot use your iPhone on the wireless charger without either taking off the PopSocket or taking off your case (if you are using this with a case) every time it is time to charge. If you do constantly remove the PopSocket you have to place it back on the phone or case almost immediately or else you will lose its adhesiveness. Overall I find this PopSocket very impractical.

    If you want a "wart" for your phone, get it! : \

    Probably not a good idea if you intend to use a wireless charger as this "wart" will get in the way. If you like your phone never being flat on the surface, get it! (especially if you stick it on all crooked too). If you like junk stuck to your phone and don't mind throwing $10 away, get it! If you like to take "selfies", or own a "selfie stick" get it! If you're prone to constantly dropping your phone while taking selfies over the Grand Canyon, get it!

    Although I love popsockets & usually don’t have issues with them I was very upset with this purchase. Absolutely beautiful glitter design but it doesn’t stick at all! I literally have it taped to the back of my phone case because I couldn’t fathom paying $16 for it to just throw it away. If it stuck correctly I would’ve had anything but positive things to say.

    I recently upgraded my iPhone from a 5 to the XS. It feels really big so I purchased a popsocket so it would be easier to hold. The popsocket didn’t hold. Came off my phone after 3 days. Tried to restick it but it just wouldn’t hold. Took the popsocket back to Best Buy and exchanged it for a different one. We will see how the new one holds up

    Was eager to try the finger grip on my iPad. For the first few weeks the finger grip eased the stress on my hand holding the iPad, but then as the iPad heated up the finger grip adhesive began softening. Ultimately the finger grip would slide around or fall off the iPad. Maybe it’s a problem with the iPad, though it works fine. The finger grip stopped adhering to the surfaces.

    Adds bulk to already larger phones for fitting in pocket. Tilts phone screen away from you or upside down when set on table. The "brushed metal" is a picture of metal which looks like somebody printed out on regular printer paper at home. With all that against it, it still isn't even very useful when you're actively using it. Feels awkward and not much more secure as you try to maneuver around it to use the phone functions

    Loses stickiness after a couple of weeks

    My wife has been using this on the back of her iPhone 8 Plus case. It worked great at first. It stayed in place and didn't come off. After owning it for a couple of weeks, the PopSocket began coming off the phone. I wife tried washing it and letting it dry per the included instructions. It still doesn't stick like it used to. This is after having it on there for two weeks and never taking it off. Definitely not worth it.

    Stuck this to back side of phone case with included double stick tape. It gets in the way of how the phone sits on the wireless charger so it won't charge correctly. Also makes me nervous to trust my $1,000 cell phone to a little piece of plastic and some sticky tape. Don't know if it will break off and I would then drop my phone. Just buy a good case instead.

    Some people recommend pop sockets this specific pop socket did not work for me the stickiness off of the pop socket kept coming off and come out on so I just took it off and threw it away because it’s in the best interest To save the extra dollars instead of having that on your phone when the person is having problems with the pop socket

    PopSocket does not stick to case

    Bought along with case for daughter's phone. After about a week it detached from the case and will not stick back on. Thinking of trying super glue but have not done so yet. I really did not expect this to last long given that you pull it up and away from the case each time you want to use it. This stresses the sticky tabs which eventually weakens the bond. I just did not expect it to have that short of a useful life.

    This pop socket would be great if it adhered to my Lifeproof case. It stayed on for a couple days then began to pop off continuously, I couldn't take it anymore I no longer use it. A waste of $10. It should say somewhere along the packing that it only adheres to specific cases. I was so excited to use it in the beginning but my excitement was shot after realizing that its only good for certain device cases.
