    Convenient but...

    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.

    First off- I LOVE my popsocket- its highly functional and cute too! It makes one handed control of my phone a breeze and I use the car mount while driving (although the design there is a bit flawed as the phone swings around when hitting bumps, etc it doesnt fall out but it does turn to the side) My HATE comes with the fact my awesome new phone has wireless charging... the popsocket prevents me from using this feature on all but the most expensive wireless chargers and even on those it has to be placed just right to function. I wish there was an easy way to remove the bulk of the popsocket or that it folded just a little flatter...

    I have tried every phone case out there and I couldn't be happier with my Otterbox commuter and speck grip case! I have dropped my phone many times and it's never once cracked or been damaged. I dropped my phone from about 5ft. up and the worst that happened was a tiny crack in the actual phone case, but the phone itself was unaffected. I also purchased a pop socket which is a must for me! I watch a lot of hulu/netflix on my phone and working in concrete I take pictures of projects throughout the process, so the pop socket is a game changer and allows me to hold my phone easily or prop it up with ease.

    Pop sockets...

    My daughter loves her pop sockets so much when we bought a new case she had to have a new one. I will admit though she doesn’t drop it as much. The phone seems to drop on the pop socket if she does. Though that was weird knowing that the pop socket really doesn’t have much weight to it. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a little extra grip on their phone and that weird physics that force the phone to land on the pop socket and not the glass in an average fall. Can’t promise that it will have the same effect for you since there are many variables at play like type of phone, size, the way someone holds their phone, etc.

    Great style but Lackluster adhesive

    The crystal look (I think it's plastic but it looks great) is outstanding and very unique. Great sparkle and the like pink color matched both my phone and its case. Even though my case was clean and I followed the directions to the letter, the phone started dropping off my socket the first day. Since I had already thrown away the packaging and receipt, I kept sticking it back on until finally gluing it on with Shoe Goop silicone adhesive. I'm hoping this will hold much better. It may stick better directly to a phone but to my rubber case, it just didn't hold up at all.

    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

    I only purchase this because I needed a cheap item to complete my 3 cellphone accessory for a discount. A bestbuy employee recommended this and I thought it was cute but pointless yes I 've seen the trend for these. Later on that day of purchase I used it and it keeped slipping off from the moisture underneath it. I could image worst if your in a warmer climate. Like I said their cute shows off ur style, but you will need to readjust it over and over to stick it on. I had it for less than a week. I found that if I keep my hands dry and applied less pressure on it it can stay on a bit long attached to my otterbox case. It's okay if you have money to throw away.

    I am constantly dropping my phone because an iPhone and little hands just don't mix well. So, I put on one of my safer phone cases (that's still cute but kind of neutral) and I stuck this popsocket on there and I have never looked back. This socket offers a tight adhesive to the case that doesn't budge at all so be careful when sticking it on there. Now having this attached to my case, though offers a whole new and more comfortable way to hold my phone. It also makes a nice rest so I can watch videos on my phone without searching for things to rest my phone against. I definitely recommend this product. It comes in lots of different colors and designs too

    Teen daughter has sworn by these PopSockets for a while and the only reason to replace hers has been to change colors or designs to match a new phone or case. These originals are the best (don't buy the cheap knockoffs as they don't work as well). Got this one for my wife to stick on the back of her new Otterbox Pursuit case for the iPhone XR. Sticks solid and holds well, and helps her grip the phone without dropping it. She likes the plain black as she didn't want it to detract from the the coral phone color seen through the clear-backed case. Excellent product.

    I purchased the "PopSockets - Faux Brushed Silver Grip and Stand for Mobile Devices - Black/Black" for my new cell phone because the new cell phone case did not have a kickstand like my last case. I found the PopSockets very handy and a bit more "flexible" (in use) than my kickstand on my old case. I'm enjoying the ability to hang on to my phone between two fingers because the phone feels very secure that way. I also makes taking pictures more manageable or easier. You can tilt the PopSocket either way to situate the phone standing up or sideways, which the kickstand could not do. You can also use two PopSockets on the back of the phone to wrap your ear buds around them for easy and secure storage.

    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!

    Great on flat surface, not as much on rounded

    I bought a few of these trying to find alternative ways to hang a hand controller for an electronic device - so not really its wheelhouse. It works great on the hand controller with a flat plastic rear surface - I stuck that one on and have used it pretty hard for a few weeks without issue. The one on the hand controller with a rounded back didn’t fare so well - it just can’t stay on. So I would expect it to work for almost any phone or case unless it has an odd shape or surface that might prevent the popsocket from making enough surface contact to form a solid bond.

    Not the greatest

    Best Buy was great because the prices were still average and they had a lot of style options. The actual PopSocket has been a disappointment though. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to put it but read that it’s easy to take off and move without losing adhesive properties. This is not true, I chose poor placement and have tried 6-7 different times to remove and move but haven’t been successful. The PopSocket also doesn’t support the weight of my iPhone 8 the greatest, it collapses in. Having it on the back of my phone case also makes it difficult, to use my wireless charger, not impossible though. It has helped in taking selfies and texting though.

    Neat Idea, but . . .

    My grandson has had several of these and there in lies the problem. Sticks very well. Makes it easier to hang on to a device. The decorative cap is the issue. They make it out of plastic, but only have 4 small taps to keep it in place. With use, the tabs break and then it falls off and gets lost. Contacted manufacturer to see if they offered replacement caps, or sold them. The answer was no. Did offer me a coupon for $5.00 off. This would have made the cost half price. With out a coupon, they expect you to buy a new one. My grandson is up to his third and that is in less than three months. At an average of 1/month, $120.00 a year, maybe. The rating is more based on the idea than the durability.

    Excellent for holding iPhone 7+ comfortably

    If I hadn't purchased my PopSocket, I'd be in deep trouble. The iPhone 7+ is fantastic, but without a PopSocket, I'm struggling to hold the phone, type, and view things on the screen because it's so large. When combined with the holder, it replaces my GPS because the PopSocket is strong enough to support the full weight of the phone and a case. The only qualm I have, is that when in "stand" mode there is a tendency for PopSocket to collapse. It can get annoying, but I've just learned not to use it like a stand, and more for a holder/holster. Also, there is a sound that mine makes when the top spins around that can get a tad annoying, but doesn't detract from the product's value.

    The Thing About Pop Sockets

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    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.

    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.

    The popsocket is the best thing I have ever bought for my phone. As a clumsy person, the ability to secure my phone with one hand has saved me and my phone’s screen at least a dozen times and using it as a kickstand means I can watch things with greater ease. I love mine and have purchased multiple for friends and family. The sticky “glue” is resilient and has let me move my socket multiple times and is still as strong as the first time. If I had to leave a negative, there is no way to bend the socket at an angle to change how your phone is leaning, but honestly that only bothered me the first week of having it and has not dampened my love of my popsocket.

    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.

    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.
