    Handy!

    This popup is so handy when wanting to hold your phone safely. It sticks well to the back cover. I love the galaxy design for extra color with my starry back cover. I did watch a you tube video on how to place the popup (I recommend one before applying) and while it is great for holding w/easy access to texting, my popup seems to collapse too easily if I want to set my phone up...phone seems too heavy. I don't use my phone as a setup, so not a problem for me, but may be for people who want to prop phone up. Everyone loves this who has seen it! It collapses back so it doesn't stick out too far if you put in in your purse or in a carrying case.

    Amazing for Expert Selfieists

    The marbles pop socket that I purchased from Best Buy has helped me while watching videos, texting my friends, and doing the most important job of all: taking selfies. Being the expert selfieist that I am, I desperately needed something to hold my phone while I made the best poses possible. It’s also very easy for all my assistants (friends) to take pictures of me with the pop socket because it allows for the phone to be held with two fingers (or one if you’re daring enough). ONLY gave this product a four because there is ALWAYS room for improvement!

    So I never used a popsocket before but I really liked the idea of having one. My phone (an LG K20 Plus) is kinda too big for my hands and is super hard for me to hold, so I bought this to try it out and see if it would help me get a better grip. And it does help a lot! I no longer am constantly dropping my phone or having it slip away from me, so I'm pretty stoked! :D I got mine in the galaxy print to match my phone case, at least as close to the best I could find. The colors on the popsocket don't quite match the ones on my phone case but that isn't the product's fault. Overall I'm pretty happy.

    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

    Cleaver device provides three uses.

    This device makes it easy to use as a kickstand so as to set your phone on your desk or table and improve the viewing angle if your hands are full. It also makes it easier to hold your phone without dropping it. With the additional clip for you dashboard, it makes it possible to mount the phone in your car without blocking air vents while placing it closer your your driving line of sight. Less time adjusting navigation or music is more time with your eyes on the road! Great device. It must be mounted on a flat phone case or the flat phone itself. If your case has ridges on the back, it will not attach firmly.

    Not much to say on this one. My daughters wanted these for their new iphones so that was the reason for the purchase. With that said I can say that they do make it easier to hold your phone for messaging or taking photos. The thing to be aware of is that you need a smooth surface for these to adhere to. If your surface is irregular shaped, has ridges, etc then these probally won't fasten well and will have you running the risk of your phone detaching and falling to the ground possible damaging it. Also I would recommend cleaning the area of your phone/case where you intend to attach this product to ensure it adheres as best as possible.

    My son wanted this for his hand me down I Phone 6 plus. The phone was in excellent condition so we also purchased an Otter Box Defender case. The PopSocket adhered well to the case but when you pull the socket out to grasp it it allows air to enter the Otter Box case that you have to chase out. It also is bulky and makes it almost impossible to put your phone in your pocket. One other issue is that you can't lay your phone flat anymore and this makes using some features difficult such as your calculator. If you don't pocket your phone and wish to have a better way to hold your phone this is great but it creates issues for many practical phone uses.

    The Thing About Pop Sockets

    Pop Sockets are really helpful in standing your smart phone and taking selfies. The THING about pop sockets, is that sometimes the adhesive does not stick well or completely to smart phone cases. I have a LifeProof case for my iPhone that I’m obsessed with but hate that every now and then, a few months down the line, the pop socket can no longer stick to my iPhone case. So it’s a bit of a bummer. I actually can’t say that I recommend this unless you have money to spare to keep buying pop sockets every 3-4 months. Just being honest here.

    Does The Job

    I was never keen on putting a PopSocket on my case, but after I upgraded to the iPhone 6S Plus, the phone was just too big for me to hold comfortably. After dropping my phone on my face more than once, I decided to just buy the PopSocket and try it out. It's actually not as bad I thought it would be! I haven't dropped my phone on my face since installing it (thank goodness!) and it is handy as a stand as well. The only downside is that when you put the phone in a pocket, the PopSocket can get caught on the seam of the pocket. Other than that, it's a good product. I wasn't impressed with the $10 price tag, but it is what it is.

    Useful phone accessory.

    Works great on my Galaxy Note 8 speck case. Make sure you measure placement twice for ease of holding when using the phone and accessory, but they function great for stability while browsing, or taking a picture (especially front camera selfie) and for propping a phone to watch a movie/show/video. Pretty solid sticker back, doesn't seem to budge, which also means once placed moving it will be an issue. Have a solid half score a the designs in this range wasn't wide, and as nice as the design on top is you can tell it's a print screen style application on plastic so it looks a little on the cheap side.

    I don't think I can ever live without a popsocket ever again. I just upgraded from a iPhone 6S to the iPhone 8S and had contemplated getting one of these popsockets in the past but never got a round to trying one. I'm so happy I finally pulled the trigger and got one because these things are awesome! They make texting and reading messages on your phone one-handed so much easier and I no longer worry that I might drop my phone. It fits comfortably your hand and can be re-used if you wish to take it off and switch it to another phone down the line. I highly recommend this item to anyone out there that is on the fence like I was.

    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.

    I like pop sockets as they're a cheap ans fun way to add something more to your phone that also has a good use. My phone is too large to use it as a stand but I get a lot of use out of it while surfing the web or doing my business work on the phone. I rarely have issues putting it into my pocket but when I wear tighter pants I do sometimes catch the socket on the edge of my pocket. Sometimes I use it to catch my pocket to make it easier to grab when I am consistently going back to my phone. Due to the small issue of it being pretruded too much for some pockets I deducted a star but other then that it's a really useful product for my application and many others.

    OK Gadget for Holding Mobile Device

    This is an OK gadget for holding a mobile device, but not so good as a stand. I purchased the Popsocket for my iPhone 8-Plus attaching the gadget to the middle of my phone case. The Popsocket sticks well to the case following cleaning with an alcohol pad. I use the Popsocket to assist in holding my iPhone 8-Plus and stability in taking photos. The Popsocket does not work as a stand for the iPhone 8-Plus; Perhaps because of the size and weight of the phone. It would probably work well as a stand for a smaller device.

    My daughter has had a Pop Socket for a while and I thought it was just a fun novelty. I ended up with some rewards point that were running out so I bought this and the car mount clip... They are great, I was able to move my phone to a better location in my car, and I find myself using the Pop Socket all the time. I have a large phone, so using the Pop Socket lets me do more things one-handed. It's also a great way to prop up the phone on my desk so it's at a good viewing angle. I don't watch movies on my phone, but I do watch the occasional You Tube video, and this is great for that. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

    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.

    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!!

    Surprisingly helpful item to have

    I picked this pop socket up, because my phone case didn't fully recess the camera - leaving it open for damage. It was either get rid of the phone case (which I love), or get something to raise the back of the phone. So, I decided to give the pop socket a try. I picked up this cute turtle design, because it looked good with the design on the case/phone. It seems sturdy (like the design won't rub off, and the pop socket won't rip from being opened and closed), and I've found it amazingly useful for helping me hold a wide/thin phone. I love it. I'll be putting these on other cases - even if I don't need it to hide the camera lens!

    Provides a good grip on your phone

    I stumbled upon the Popsocket grip while we were shopping at Best Buy for a Blu-Ray Player. Nifty idea, being able to get a better grip on your phone. There has been numerous times where I almost dropped my iPhone because I was juggling other things in my hands. The sticky pad in the back grips firmly to the phone and can be pulled off to reposition. Which is great because the first time I stuck it on my phone, I had it a bit too low. Only drawback is that even when you push it flat against the phone, it isn't exactly flat. Therefore, if you put it in your back pocket and go to pull it out, it may catch on the pocket. Other then this, it works fairly well.

    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...
