    Better than I thought

    I didn’t get on the pop socket trend when it first came out because I had the credit card holder on the back of my last phone. But when I got a new phone I decided to get a pop socket instead because the credit card holder ruined my last case with the residual left from the sticker! The pop socket said it was movable so I wanted to try it and it’s really great! I’ve already moved it 3 times on my case and it hasn’t ruined it or left any stickiness on it. And the pop socket itself doesn’t lose any stickiness after you remove it, not sure how they do it but I love that! I have a magnetic case for my phone so I can use it on my magnetic holder in my car so I really didn’t want the case to get ruined. And the pop socket doesn’t get in the way with my car holder either! So happy with this purchase, it makes the phone easier to hold too

    Works but gets dirty quickly

    I like it, but wish the main parts were not white. Gets dirty quickly and although you can clean it, you probably won't as often as it needs. Can't be used as a kickstand if you have a case that HAS a kickstand because you have to set it off center or higher... but if I put it higher then i struggle teaching it while typing. I blame the phone size for this one- my ideal phone size is an iPhone 5- I have the 7... nobody can reach across the screen with one hand already so if you get a pop socket, you'll likely want it off center to fit your fingers so you can easily maneuver with one hand. While I like it so far, I don't think it'll last for me. Not only does the off center placement affect the standing part, but then if you attach it to the dash, it spins upside down then- so, bottom line, place it in the very center of your phone and hope you can adapt to the change in your grip.

    Functional little piece

    I purchased this after watching how my teenager uses it and after seeing that this piece is not some gadget fad but actually quite useful. We should all be conscious of what the younger generation is using and doing. I sometimes say, the things they're into makes no sense, only to later retract what I said and fingmd that it may be a smarter way to do something. (Not all things, but some). However this piece can prop your phone on a flat surface just like a tablet case does, so that you can watch something from your phone or if you're writing something, the way it props is a much more comfortable position to look, write and scroll. It helps you to comfortably hold your phone without dropping it when the pop sockets it pushed out. It does everything the manufacturer says it does.

    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.

    Recently upgraded to a Samsung s9 which is slightly bigger and heavier than my previous phone, so I just bought this on a whim to try it out. I've never used any kind of finger grip before so I was sure if I would like it. Wow was a I wrong! It adheres to the phone case and never had a problem with it peeling off unexpectedly. And this Carbonite Weave pattern matched my case's carbon fiber weave finish. The two stage pop-up level is ingenious. It very comfortable in my hand while in use, and it doesn't protrude out that much when not in use. Fully extended it works great to prop my phone up on a table so I can watch videos hands free. I'm going to get the popsocket mount for my car. Overall I'm very impressed with this product.

    So I already had the Kate spade Phone case in my actual cart and when I was looking for a pop socket to match I assumed that Kate spade would have it ( they did not) I was amazed that Best Buy had this brand that literally looks the exact same as the phone case. I was even more excited to see the low price. It holds up very well ( I mess with my phone a lot ) throw it, spin it, and this thing does not budge, amazing. Definitely worth the price and look at the picture yourself. It’s like it was made to be paired with this case. Total score if you ask me.

    I bought 2 of these for use with new iphones and they work well. I have not tried something like this before so I can't compare function or quality to other brands or similar products, but I liked the colors on this one so I decided to try it. The reason I hesitated on the purchase initially was because I thought it might be in the way, but it collapses down to the point where it doesn't bother me at all to have it mounted on the phone. In fact, I find I use it much more than I thought I would and now I'm not sure I could go without it. It has also saved me from dropping my phone in a few situations. Overall, very functional and works well, noting this isn't a major investment so definitely worth giving it a shot.

    Does what it's supposed to, but gets in the way.

    It is a nice little gadget, and seems to work as advertised (which is why I'm giving it 4 stars), but it turned out to really get in the way during my daily use. If you have a wireless charger, you'll need to remove this whenever you want to charge your phone. It prevents the phone from laying flat on a table, so if you often use it like that, I wouldn't recommend this for you. If you have a phone with interchangeable backs (such as the Motorola phones that allow multiple accessories or different colored plates to be attached), you'll need to detach this and reconnect it when you switch backs (or get more than one of these so you can attach one to each back). I did detach and reconnect it multiple times, and it continued to stick well, although I'd think after doing this repeatedly over time it would begin to stick less effectively. It's good for what it is, but just didn't fit with how I use my phone.

    I love these things!! My first one was a gift, and I loved it so much, that I bought another one as a "backup"...just in case! The only problem is, we understood the instructions, to use the extra sticky circle, under the sticky circle that is already on the pop socket. My first pop socket kept coming off, so I super glued it to my case. The second one came in handy when my case broke. Instead of using the second sticky circle, I only used the one that was attached to the pop socket. It hasn't come off at all, even with constant use. Also, be sure and stick it to the case, with the case off the phone. That way, you can make sure it is stuck firmly to the case.

    Serves its purpose

    I bought it for my girlfriend and best friend and they seem to enjoy it. If placed in the center or close to center, it serves as a kickstand. Unfortunately, bc my gf has a magnet in the back of the phone for her car mount, it has to be placed lower so that it doesn’t block the magnet, so it can’t be used as a kickstand for her phone. Her hands are also small so it’s harder for her to reach the center of the phone. They also sell for $10 the pop socket mount, but I didn’t feel like spending another $10 for a specific mount for a specific item. I honestly think the mount should come with it, or the mount should only be $5. It’s too pricey for the mount. Personally, I don’t like that it doesn’t allow the phone to lay flat on its back, but the girls in my life don’t seem to mind...it helps them grip the big phones better with their small hands.

    Super phone accessory

    If you asked me a few months ago to review this product I would have predicted that I would tire of it and take it off my phone. NOT THE CASE at all!! This is one of those cool products that carries its functional weight. While it adds a little bulk to the slimness; however, it does help you hold your phone in pretty much every situation. I highly recommend this gadget, especially if you have an iPhone 6 + or other "phablet" sized devices. It makes taking pictures far easier as you are not daintily holding your phone worried that someone might bump you & shatter your screen. It also makes one-handed typing a lot easier & less of a balancing act. It is also useful as a kickstand for watching videos or just keeping your device propped up in a meeting. Well worth the money! I dont often write glowing reviews.. but this product deserves it.

    Love popsockets

    I would never have a phone without one as I have gotten so used to it being available to hold onto. It also has become my fidget. Only downside to my current pop socket is that I play with it so much that I have accidentally popped it off of my phone. Depending on your case, it may or may not stick permanently. My last case was rubber and I ended up gorilla gluing it to my case. It never moved after that. I have not done this with my new pop socket, because for most part it is it sticking. I understand that the pop sockets are supposed to be removable, but I like permanence and like to know that if I’m holding onto it I am not going to drop my phone.

    If you could see my old phones, you would know I drop them way too often. These popsockets could not have come soon enough for me. They come in a lot of cute and fun designs. The only thing I wish is that the character themed ones would be the same price as these basic designs. I haven't used the mount piece yet but so far the sticky pad on this works so well and doesn't even budge. And gives me a great grip on my phone I couldn't drop it if I tried. So far I only have one on my phone I haven't seen the need to put a second one on though I do see where it could be very handy to have it, not only does it work as a great grip, it also works as a great phone stand when I want to have it angled upward to watch something. Still in the trial phases but so far very impressed and very excited to not break my new phone.

    A simple idea for that works well. So much less chance of dropping a very expensive phone and I also purchased the little phone holder for my car that this fits into. I find that it is low profile enough to be able to store easily in my pocket or handbag, but for use it becomes second nature to open and use, especially for when I take photos! It reduces hand fatigue when you have to hold your phone for a long time and I also use it as a stand to prop it when I watch how-to videos. Everyone in our family has one, and I like that we can choose one that has a personality to suit our own style. Good purchase!

    I got this with a deal to receive a discount for buying 3 mobile accessories so this was not on my radar at all. I've seen people with them and thought they were cool but never considered on for myself. Now I am extremely happy to own this. It makes holding my phone pleasurable as it hugs my fingers comfortably. It also doubles as a kickstand which is great so I can watch videos while my hands are full. Sometimes I even just like to put it in stand mode just because I think it looks cool (I know total nerd lol). It pops flat when not in use and doesn't make the phone that much thicker. pops out easily when ready to be used again. Doesn't leave a sticky, slimy residue when you pull it off. The glue probably last about a few dozen times before it wears off (just a guess however). Best part, its cheap.

    POPSOCKETS ARE THE GREATEST!

    I recently purchased my first smartphones and was concerned that they could easily slip from my hand when using them and become damaged. I observed a passenger on a NYC subway securely holding her smartphone by holding onto a raised "small rubberized knob" attached to the back of the phone. When she finished using the phone she lightly pushed down on the raised attachment and put the phone in her bag. When questioned she told me the attached item was a POPSOCKET which she had purchased on-line for $10 and that it attached easily and securely to the back of her phone. I went that day to a Best Buy store which had POPSOCKETS. BB was having a promotion on cellphone accessories ----I bought 4 of them for 25% discount off the regular $10 price (or $7,50 each). I'm now able to hold my smartphone securely by holding onto the attached Popsocket.

    I have had this pop socket on my otterbox case for 10 months and its sticking as well as the day I put it on. I have not moved it to a different case or phone so I cannot attest to how well it works after removing, rinsing, and re-sticking. The image has faded some but has held up well. The pop socket does create too much distance between back of phone and wireless charging dock, so I just remove the hard shell of otterbox each night to charge. A small inconvenience so I give 4/5 stars. The new otterboxes have pop sockets allowing the phone to lie flat, but I would need to upgrade phone.

    When my daughter first asked me for one of these things, I was against it. I don't like to attach stickers to anything, and didn't like having a knob on the back even if it was pushed all the way in. Then she picked a case with a smooth(ish) backing and I figured if this didn't work that would be OK with me and we could just replace the case. To my surprise, this thing works really well. My teenage daughter loves taking selfies (of course) and she has much more control over her phone holding it at arm's length with this. And since her phone resides in her purse when not in use, the bump on the back doesn't bother her. If you carry your phone in your pocket like I do, then this might not be for you. If that knob on the back doesn't matter to you, then this is a great addition to any mobile device.

    I purchased several of these, one for my self and the rest as gifts. The instructions point to them being reusable, which I was pleased to read; however; after a few times of taking it off and washing the glue pad I've had some issue with it sticking back on. *(I had a few issues with my case and had to keep changes cases for a bit there so that's why I kept having to take the popper off and reapply.) But I did find out (through trial and error) that if you want to reapply, wash it, make sure its completely dry, and then reapply. LET IT AIR DRY DON"T USE A TOWEL TO DRY IT, LINT WILL GET ALL OVER THE GLUE PAD! I've used this on a hard plastic case and a silicone case, and have not had any issues with it not sticking! comes off easier on the silicone, but does not leave any residue on either case.

    I think I've bought way to many of these! I love that they come in so many different styles and colors! My only gripe with it is that when placed in the PopSocket wall mount accessory over night...I would wake up to my phone being on the floor because the adhesive did not hold onto my iPhone 8+ case. I'm going to guess that because the phone is heavier than my previous iPhone 7 that it's unable to handle such weight when placed in a vertical position. I know it's not my phone case because my iphone 7 and iphone 8+ case was made by the same company and out of the same materials. Either way...I would still recommend this little accessory to anyone!
