    These newer pop sockets do NOT stick.

    I crushed my old phone in a sad accident. I had that pop socket on there for 2 years. Got the exact same phone and otterbox case I had with my old phone and bought this pop socket. It doesn’t stick. Stumbled upon an old one I had bought before pop socket switched and started making these newer ones and it’s sticking perfectly. Whatever they changed, it doesn’t help for otterbox case users. The lady at Best Buy told me that she has issues with hers also, that the picture part always falls off. She said that multiple people have said they have to superglue these newer pop sockets to their phones. For the price, they should just stick, like the old ones.

    Not a bad idea, just a little on the large side

    I really wish this popsocket was smaller--it would do the trick just as well. Instead it's this giant thing sticking out of the back of your phone or phone case. If you have this on a phone that allows you to charge it wirelessly, you won't be able to do that anymore without removing the popsocket. The gap the popsocket creates is too big between the charger and the phone, so no charging can be induced. I had to rip the thing off the back of my phone and once I had a case on my phone, off the back of my case bc it just was too clumsy and without being able to charge my phone wirelessly, I found the popsocket useless. Oh, and did I mention that at $9.99, it's totally overpriced for what it is?

    So the popsocket thing was cool until I removed it and tried to put it on my new LifeProof case... At that point I read the packaging and realized that the pop socket does not work on waterproof cases, why would something that is made to secure your phone not work on a case that is made to secure your phone? I don't understand why it worked just fine but left a big round in print that I cannot get off of my LG G5... But will not work on the waterproof case! I will be returning this, but I would recommend it for Hep phone or somebody who wants to look cool when they hold their phone, maybe buy one for your grandma or Grandpa they would love it me... Not so much!

    I bought the pop socket and mount at the same time. The mount is still on my car. It’s small and in a good location. I loved using it. Right now it’s fine, but I haven’t been able to use it recently because after a Lobito a week the actual pop socket came off my phone. I put it back on but of course once it’s off it’s only a matter of time before it happens again and after about another week it fell off again and I just threw it away. I’ll buy another one to see, but after that I won’t waste anymore of my money on a pop socket. Unfortunately the mount is useless without the pop socket so now I just have a random useless mount in my car

    Design Cheap Looking

    I have heard about Popsockets being the current trend in cell phone accessories and thought that I would purchase one as a gift for a teenager. I was a bit surprised when I received it because the design itself on the face of the device looks like it is photocopied & is cheap looking. The pink is kind of washed out and doesn't have much contrast. Can't say how it performs since it is a gift. Glad that I bought it as a Cyber Monday special at $5 because if I had paid full price of $10 it would be going back. Looks like something I would find in a dollar store.

    NOT designed for the "gummy" phone covers

    Total bummer! My son got an iPod and immediately, we went to Best Buy to get a cover for it and a PopSocket. He chose one of those flexible covers that keeps the phone really well protected but doesn't make the iPod twice as thick as it was originally. Unfortunately, the pop socket was a bust. He bought it and we both really struggled to remove the plastic film on top of the sticky back. Then, the pop socket popped right off about 3 days after the purchase. It's going back. I think what is most frustrating is that the salesperson who helped us could have mentioned that pop sockets don't stick very well to the "gummy-style" covers.

    Purchased this in December. Had it on until 1/28 when the actual PopSocket decided to separate from the sticky backing that remained stuck to my cell phone case. Tried reattaching the PopSocket again twice, but it fell off each time. Grateful this didn't' happen to me when I was outside or on a hard floor. But I'm genuinely surprised at its poor construction - falling apart a month and half of normal use?? If it wasn't outside the return/exchange window, I would've tried to get a different one...

    I must have had bad luck this round becAuse my popsockets tend to hold without fail. I bought this to replace a cheaper brand I had used prior and was severely disappointed. When I rested my phone in the car pop socket dock it kept seerating from my phone and dropping it. The pop socket did not hold whene ever I put it back on and tried once more. I don’t know why this happened but I’ve never had this problem before. Just wasn’t sticky enough.

    I had bought my family and I pop sockets as I have seen pretty much everyone with these things on their phones. Me having a Galaxy S9+ which is a bigger phone I thought it would help in holding the phone however, to me it just got in the way and when I placed it on a flat surface it would not lay flat and I could not place it on my wireless charging dock. Other than that my family loves theirs and uses theirs daily. There not made for everyone but I would say try it out to see if it works for you.

    so I really wanted a pop socket I have seen so many people buy them and enjoy the convenience. I thought the design was so pretty it was galactic but very feminine and the base was white. I had purchased a brand new case for it to match with and I could not get it to stick! I probably should have returned it but just took the loss. I still have yet to try another but so many people have them.

    I bought a popsocket after glowing reviews from friends. Given that I had just purchased an iPhone XS Max, I decided to give it a try. So far so good....except for two things. My phone does not lie flat on a table, it will move or wobble. I also am unable to wirelessly charge anymore. If you will not be using wirelessly charging functions, absolutely get it. Otherwise, just learn to hold your phone better and deal with it.

    Cute, but didn't stick!

    If you have a Google Pixel with the fabric case, the PopSocket will not stick for long. Also, if you have the Google Pixel stand charger it won't charge if you have a PopSocket on the back of your phone. I wish I would've thought about this before purchasing. If you don't have a fabric case & don't use the Pixel stand charger then PopSockets are great. Both my kids have them on their Apple products and they work great!

    Great accessory idea but fell apart in 3 days

    I purchased this item at Best Buy 1.5 hours from my home. I had the associate at the store install my screen protector, phone case, and the pop socket. Within the 1st 3 days it fell apart in my pocket. The pop socket is a great idea but not very well constructed. I had to super glue the 4 points where the colorful cover connects to the collapsed portion so that it would stay together. Disappointed in what I had to pay for it to fall apart in the 1st 3 days.

    My wife loves the PopSocket features when used on her Kindle Fire, however it fell apart after less than 6 months. One of the tabs on the colorful plastic inset broke off and now it won't stay in place. The PopSocket is still usable, but am disappointed with the poor quality. Debating whether to purchase another, so cannot recommend at this time.

    Got it for a 90-year-Old person. The person loved it for holding onto the phone. Less than 24 hours after having it, the person, who is not strong, tore it off the phone and ruined the double-backed tape. I’m not going to replace it because the tape is less than reliable and I didn’t want the person to damage the phone.

    I have not used it. If I put it on before putting the Cover (Tablet) or protective case (iPhone), the the cover or case will no longer fit the device. If i put it on the case or cover, the cover will not open fully but will hang and interfear with operation. If on the iPhone case, the phone will no longer fit into my belt phone holder. I was a point of purchase for me, before I thought it through.

    Not the best PopSocket

    The packaging states that this item will stick to smooth cases but it would not stay at all on my LifeProof case. I cleaned my case with alcohol and allowed it to dry. I applied the PopSocket to my phone case and it would not adhere to the phone case at all. Very disappointed with this PopSocket

    This would work great if it were stuck directly to the back of your phone however I have a OtterBox phone case and stuck it to the back of that. It did not stick to it very long, maybe three days. I then noticed it popped part of my Otter box backing up. I bought this with the OtterBox and was not told I couldn’t use them together. I am just disappointed that it won’t work on my OtterBox phone case.

    It works like it was designed; the product sticks to the phone well and helps to stabilize when using. However, I had to remove my full protective case to switch to one that only covers the back. Also, I have wireless charging capability that I am unable to use with the grip at stand. I can still pkuf the phone up of course but that is a key feature if the phone that I can no longer use.

    I wanted to use this on back of phone basically as a phone holder when i wanted to use phone freehanded. Phone topples over. I even tried to release it and apply lower on phone but it still wouldn't stand up. I found it uncomfortable to hold phone by this gadget. When you place phone on surface this makes phone easy to fall over as it is higher than phone back. On positive side it is a nice color.
