    Makes my phone usable

    I have small hands, being a petite person, and for some silly reason I got myself an iPhone 8+. It turns out I can’t use it with one hand, but the placement of a pop-socket near the bottom lets me hold the phone in one hand for selfies and general use. It’s fantastic! I actually put another pop-socket near the top to make handling the phone even easier, but it’s really the bottom one that is the most useful. The drawbacks are: (1) the pop-socket separated from the plastic adhesive circle after 8 months of heavy use, and (2) it does ruin the sleek look of the iPhone. I’d much rather be able to hold onto my expensive phone than worry about looks, though!

    Cool for mounting & standing

    I mostly love having this for mounting my phone in the car. It's also nice sometimes for standing the phone up. I do notice though that the popsocket starts to lose its sturdiness a little bit as time goes on, so I can't really make it stand on an angle anymore because it pops back out now. It does also come in handy to make holding onto the phone with one hand easier both for regular use and for taking photos. You have to find the right placement for it though so that the phone stands up in both directions the way you want it to and so that when you're holding your phone you can hold onto it and still reach the buttons on the phone screen. Fortunately, it's removable and you can change its placement as often as you want. Overall, I like having it so far, and I would recommend it.

    Very handy cell phone accessory

    I found that once I figured out the right spot to apply the Popsocket it was pretty handy to use. I ordered the 'Golden Silence' design and it wasn't the color that I thought I had ordered online. I thought it would be a metallic gold and it was more of a pale golden yellow with brownish/ burgundy tints in the design. Surprisingly it matched very nicely with my pink Otterbox cell phone case. The only thing I have found to be negative about the product is that once you apply the Popsocket to the back of your phone case you can no longer use the wireless charging pad unless you remove your cell phone case or the Popsocket. I have opted to not use the wireless charging pad for now. This is a very handy accessory to easily hang on to your cell phone. So far I really like it.

    I liked it a lot, but I use a magnetic mount for my phone and the PopSocket interfered with the use of it. Other that that, it's a nice tool to use to handle your phone! Put a magnet, or steel, as one of the endplates, and I'll put it back on, again! Update!: I found a small metal disc, that fits and works with my magnetic mount. I applied some 3M two sided tape to cover the end of my PopSocket, applied the disc, and it works like a charm! I'm back in Popsocket business!

    Wow... if popsockets aren't the best thing that's happened with iphone accessories, I don't know what is! As a Realtor, I handle my phone much more than many others, constantly checking emails, using my electronic keys and app access to real estate searches. My hand had started to cramp! These pop sockets provide not only easier handling of the phone but a SAFER, more secure way too. Ive purchased these for my parents with arthritic hands and they LOVE them. Great designs and havent had any break. Be sure to get the holder for your car and no more worrying about your phone falling to the floorboard or between your car seat!

    I’m not a fan of having things sticking out of the back of my phone making them look like it’s suffering from a tumor (iPhone battery case *cough cough) but this thing?!?! let me tell you! it’s both comfortable and versatile to hold my phone with my hand and use the finger grip (insert michael Scott quote here) add the holder for your car and your phone floats on your dashboard!!! I have bought like 8 and given them as presents and so far no complaints. The glue that sticks the grip is strong and it’s hard to get loose unless you have a hulk toddle that manages to get his little prybar fingers on your handheld. 5stars.

    Great for large awkward phones completes that is great for vehicles that have air Vance or an area that you can stick The pop socket set as it comes into pieces I’m giving it a for rating for the fact that one piece you have to stick it somewhere on your vehicle resp The pop socket set as it comes into pieces I’m giving it a four rating for the fact that one piece you have to stick it somewhere on your vehicle And the other reason is the second piece will be permanently stuck to your phone which forces you to buy a safety cover however you are hands-free if your vehicle does not have a sink system as long as you have an area to stick the item on to your vehicle it’s a perfect set up

    What a great idea!

    This is perfect for me. I have trouble with a bad grip. This makes me so much more secure using and carrying my phone. The only issue I had was that the sticky on the back, which worked excellently with my iphone 7, didn't stick well with my iphone 8. I went to the online site for pop sockets and found that this is an issue due to the waterproofing of the phone and also with some silicone cases. They have a free fix for the asking. They respond very quickly and I am giving their customer support 5 stars as well! My husband saw my Pop Socket and the Pop Socket Mount and had to have them also. He does not do accessories, so that in itself is a glowing recommendation! I have recommended these to everyone I talk to.

    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?

    They are pretty, useful, makes the phone much easier to hold whether reviewing messages or texting. I bought one for me, one for my husband, and an extra one just in case I had problems. Glad I did. You need to be really be sure the back of your phone (or case) is very clean before applying the first adhesive circle. Mine stuck well the first time and didn't come loose. The one for my husband's phone stuck but, the first time we tried to pull up the pop socket, the adhesive circle on his case came with it. I needed to clean his case and try the third one. As long as you are sure you do that, they should work just fine!

    I really really wanted to enjoy this product and pictures and videos I've seen made it look like it comes off really easily and you can just move it around however you want. When placed in the center back of my iPhone 6 Plus it worked fine as a stand, but if I moved it down a little towards the bottom half (a great spot to use it for texting), then the phone fell over easily. Moving it around meant prying, and I mean PRYING, it off the phone/case and sticking it somewhere else. I thought it somehow suctioned on or had a specific type of mechanism that attached and detached with ease, but that's not the case. I'd recommend it for people with the standard iPhone or other phones, but not the Plus or larger models.

    I Never Would Have Guessed

    I saw these things around, and I thought they were some silly fad. I never would have bought one for myself, but I received one as a gift, so I gave it a try. What a revelation! My hands are small, and I used to drop my phone a lot, but the Popsocket gives me a secure handle to hold on to. I’m almost embarrassed to admit that the improved grip provided by the Popsocket also allows me to take better selfies. :-) I can use the Popsocket as a prop so that I can watch videos hands-free. And my favorite, the Popsocket mount in my car allows me to keep my phone close at hand. You can place it anywhere you want! I never would have guessed that this thing would be so useful to me, but I am so glad I have one now!

    This is my third pop socket. My first was an American flag and it stuck amazingly to my life proof case for my iPhone 6s Plus. The second was an astronaut kitten and it wouldn’t stay stuck. I did clean my phone case with soap and water and then rubbing alcohol. Still didn’t stick. My third I ran into the same non-sticking issue. I had to use some dots of gorilla glue to get it to stay. Also to combat the picture from wearing off I used some clear gel nail polish and cured it.

    Pop sockets always seemed like a silly idea for me, since I hardly ever drop my phone. But that was when I had a 4" iPhone 5c, which was super small and easy to handle. Upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and putting it in an Otterbox case, it's much heftier than my little iPhone. This popsocket just sticks to the back of the case and it's good to go! It can pop out so you can slip your fingers between the back of the phone and the underside of the socket, which lets you hold onto it with excellent grip and stability. It can also be used as a kickstand, since my case doesn't come with one. I'm not convinced I'd totally want one for a tiny phone, but it's a must-have for larger phones over 5". I love it!

    Can't hold my phone without it now

    My old popsocket was wearing out after about a year of constant use. I took it off my phone knowing I was going to get a new one and those couple of days without it were terrible. I love these things. They make your phone so much more comfortable to hold, easier to hang on to when you're carrying a lot of things at once, and the kickstand option is pretty nice. One of the drawbacks is that you can't really lay your phone flat on a surface and type without it wobbling around, but it's a negligible inconvenience. I love the variety of designs, and I think this one is so pretty. The quality of the print on the popsocket is really good and clear. I recommend these you everyone!!

    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!

    Convenient but doesn’t lay flat enough

    This works as advertised (easy to apply, no issues with popping it out, and it does make things easier on my hands and grip) but my main complaint is that it doesn’t lay flat enough (as in thin enough) so when I lay my phone down it’s a bit too elevated for my liking and more or less balancing on the pop socket. The good thing is that the pop socket surface area is large enough that I don’t think the balancing is precarious but I’d still prefer it to contract to a thinner profile. My other minor complaint is that they directed me to a YouTube video for the application instructions rather than just including them in the package.

    I was skeptical about popsockets and other devices that attach to phones, a lot of knockoffs are cheap and have really terrible adhesive and fall off, but not popsockets. They stick for years but are also removable, and in the past I’ve removed mine and attached many times. The only bad thing is they do protrude out a bit and make putting a phone in or pulling it out of your pocket a bit harder since they catch on the hem, and there can be no wireless recharging with these on the back of your device. Not a total deal breaker, since I put these on my case and remove my case should I need wireless charging.

    So I initially purchased one after seeing a coworker with one and inquired of its use... I’ve had good use of the Popsocket since purchase and no regrets. I recently upgraded my iPhone and wanted to be simple and minimalistic with my accessories, as they can become overwhelming and costly. I must say this was a great investment. Even went back a few days later to purchase a secondary Popsocket and holders for my spouses device. As a professional driver, he absolutely finds good use on the semi and his personal vehicle. We’re fans!!!
