    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    We are NOT pop socket newbs in my house. Had them & a love hate relationship for several years. They are comfortable to hold, but can catch on things. My main dislike is that you have to chose between these or wireless charging. Wouldn't it be cool if they could conduct some how? But lately the last few haven't been sticking well. We clean the case with alcohol first, Have even started trying to attach them at night & let them set before using. They're just not holding on.

    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.

    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.

    Many Uses and Definitely Worth It

    This grip attaches to the back of your phone and can be used to keep it up when watching a video or holding your phone in your hand to prevent it from falling. It stick with an adhesive. The main problem I came across is that once you unstick it the grip becomes weakened so it's more prone to coming off afterwards. If you pop it out and un-pop it a lot from fidgeting with it etc it will loosen the grip so just keep that in mind. Other than that this is amazing and I love it. Will buy another for sure.

    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.

    worked well for a little over a month...

    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 bought another PopSocket for my phone and put it on the back of my phone case. This item helps me to use my phone one handed. It pops down when not in use and then you simply pop it up when you're ready to use your phone. It allows you to hold your phone more securely and worry less about dropping your phone. It has worked very well although I have noticed that over time, the strength of the pull-out does decrease and it is sometimes harder to get the unit to hold the phone when it is fully extended.

    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.

    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 cant imagine not having one on my phone. It is something so simple but it makes a HUGE difference. I no longer drop my phone on my face in bed lol. It helps me get a better grip on my phone for selfies. This is my second popsocket and I only bought this one because the pattern on my first one has started to fade. But after over a year of use it has not lost its stickiness. It sticks really well on my silicone case. I love how easy it is to restick. I have tried other devices similar to the popsocket but nothing compares to this.

    My mother wanted one of these for her phone which is larger than she is comfortable holding with one hand. She's happy with it and many of her other friends like them too. I don't use them since my hands are big big enough to hold my phone without issue. My mother also carries her phone in her purse while I use a pocket, so space is more of a premium for me. I'd recommend these for anyone who has smaller hands and uses a larger phone, or if you want a more secure grip without worrying about adding a little extra size to your phone.
