    Middle-aged, hate selfies, love this!

    I had been seeing these on people’s phones for quite some time, but even on the phones of adults I am acquainted with - they all are rather obsessed with selfies. So, I never looked into one much. Until, I bought a bigger phone to help with my middle-aged decline of close vision. I had the toughest time holding the phone for certain things - including taking one-handed pictures for auction items and such. These were on sale prior to Christmas, so I spent my Rewards card on a few for the family. I LOVE this thing. The first position I placed it didn’t work as well as I had hoped - I had placed it a little too far up for the weight of the phone. Thought once it was plucked off and placed elsewhere, it surely wasn’t going to stick again on a silicone case that has some texture. Researched how to wet it, dry it only for a certain time before reattaching - no problem and it’s held well. It isn’t the most attractive one - the one I purchased that was on sale - but, guessing that’s why it was quite a bit cheaper than other designs :) Don’t care because it’s practical and works.

    Wasn't really into the idea of this, now I love it

    I didn't really like the idea of sticking something on the back of my phone to take up more room and be a nuisance. After being recommended this item by a best buy employee who was using it herself and seeing how this model collapses rather flat when not pulled out and being used I decided to give it a shot on my Galaxy Note 5. It actually makes a difference in ease of use, especially when typing or watching video. Whether I am using 1 hand or 2 to hold and use my phone, the pop socket gives me a much more secure grip on my device without causing any strain to my hand or fingers to do so. I am 6' and have average to large hands for my height, but even so any phone with a screen larger than 5" can cause some discomfort trying to hold and use with 1 hand, usually forcing you to use two to use it efficiently and to feel secure you won't lose hold of it while doing so. I am currently writing this review comfortably with 1 hand on my Note 5. If you keep your phone in your pocket like me, you will be glad to know you can continue to do so, you will have to be mindful of it catching on the lip of your pocket if you put your phone in with the screen against your leg as I do, but if you guide your phone into your pocket with your hand instead of shoving it in from the end this really isn't a problem. The one drawback of using this item is if you regularly use wireless charging with your device the pop socket will create to much distance to use the wireless charging. It can be easily removed at any time though and stuck back on later, but if you wirelessly charge your phone often that would be very annoying to do. I just use my fast charging cord instead of my wireless charging stand, so it's not really a big inconvenience to me personally.

    The accessory I never knew I needed!

    So I just upgraded from an iPhone 6s Plus to an 8 plus. I was online shopping for a case and Best Buy was offering a promotion if you buy 3 accessories, so I started to browse around to see what else I might use. I had heard a lot about PopSockets but I wasn’t sure if it was something I really needed. When I was texting a lot on the 6s+ I tended to rest the bottom of the phone on my pinky, which became uncomfortable over time. I also tended to drop my phone a lot because I always had too many things in my hands at once when I was shopping or going to or from my car. So this seemed like it *might* be worth trying. My first day with it I probably moved around on my phone a dozen times because I couldn’t settle on where to put it. Surprisingly it stuck every time and doesn’t feel like it might just pop off at any time because I wasted any of the glue. It took a little time to get use to holding the phone with the PopSocket but after the first day it just felt so natural that I wasn’t sure how I ever lived without it. Texting is so much easier. It’s easier to carry your phone around while you do other things and you don’t have to be afraid of constantly dropping it. And as a bonus, it is adorable. I have the rose gold phone and this design looks great with it. My third accessory purchase was a wireless charging pad that was a pre-order so that hasn’t arrived yet. I am afraid that when that comes I will have to take the PopSocket off to get a good charge. I’ve only had the PopSocket for a week or two and I already don’t know how I’ll live without it. So we’ll see when the charger comes, which one wins out or if I can keep them both.

    MY ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT: I don't care for the plastic texture of the design. I'd pay more for ceramic or actual marble. I read the reviews and thought that I purchased a DUD. I didn't pop the top piece all the way out and I thought this level is for baby hands. I finally got irritated enough to pull the socket harder and it popped out enough to the full extension size. There are technically 2 levels that you can pop out to. The first level would work best for a kid or someone with REALLY tiny fingers. It takes a while to position it comfortably, everyone is different. Luckily it is SUPER sticky, do not touch the sticky pad, if you do just run some cool water on it. It has really helped my hand not cramp up, due to arthritis (sadly I'm only 29 and I've had it for some years now). The instant kickstand capability is pretty awesome as well. I also suggest that you watch the video on the popsocket site to see all the ways you can use it. Disregard the case I'm using with the popsocket, it doesn't match this case. I have another that it does match better.

    One on every phone in my family

    I used to scoff at the idea of attaching anything to my cell phone that might interfere with it getting in and out of my pocket. My wife came home with one of these and I thought I'd never put one on. Within a few days I slapped one on the back of my otter box commuter and I've not thought of removing it. It's a handy extra grip for the phone, provides a stand if necessary, great for the little hands in my house, but most importantly, when paired with the mounting hook I can just slide it into a great spot on my dash and it's locked there until I need to get out of the car. I can change orientation of the screen in the holder and adjust the angle of the screen as well. I don't have to divert my attention from the road and it makes the hands free operation of the phone much more practical. As much as I thought I would hate getting it caught in my pocket with this little nub on the back, it has really been no issue, even in my jeans front pockets. Invaluable. And I can remove it and reattach it to my new case without having to buy a new pop socket or new adhesive.

    I wish these were cheaper then id have a hundred of them i would just collect them forever. They are good options if you dont like the ring style stands. I was always dropping my phone and became suddenly ill this year with many procedures and one surgery so i cant bend like i use to. i can pick this up easier with my grabber stick now and could not be happier for that reason alone. Plus im an artist and appreciate how well these look and im always looking for something different. Functions just as it says it should no complaints here. The designs are also WONDERFULLY detailed and look gorgeous no wonder they cost as much as they do. I dont get many impulse buys from this store but they always are a great place to find things you didnt think you would. The fair city mall location is a good one with good people. Usually i go to another store for most of my computer and electronic needs first because me and my mom are always on a budget due to my illness, but for distance, 8/10 service or things we cant find and no time to go anywhere else, this is our go to place.

    I bought this with all my hopes and dreams ready for the solution to all of my phone problems -- something to make my phone easier to hold while I'm multi-tasking (just kidding -- I mean taking a selfie), and cheap phone holder that I could put virtually anywhere -- in the car, on the bed post, on the side table next to the couch, etc. It was brilliant! The popper wasn't too big that it caused too much bulk on the back of my phone, so sliding it in my pocket didn't cause a problem. The u-shaped holders were great (and cheap). I have one in my car, on the bedpost (who wants to deal with knocking the phone into the floor in the middle of the night--this thing keeps it tight), on the side table next to the couch (so useful - no more condensation water getting on my phone), even one at work on my computer monitor!!. Here's the problem.....the popper keeps coming off the back of my phone. YUP....I cleaned my phone before I put it on....I used alcohol like it said. YUP....I waited for it to dry....YUP...I did all the things like directed....So....that's a fail. But here's the saving grace...my husband bought one too. His phone is exactly like mine (well, his has a few more scratches). He didn't clean his. He didn't follow directions. His popper is still on. Mines in the trash. YES...I'm going to buy another one. But I'm waiting on my phone to get a little handy first. LOL

    I had run across so many people who loved their pop socket that I just had to try it. When I found myself holding my phone around the socket, instead of using it, I knew it wasn’t for me. I have since bought a much larger phone, so I may try it again. But my first try wasn’t so spectacular as I’d hoped. My sales guy agreed that people either loved them or hated them. He happened to really love his. So, worth a try? Sure. But be aware, the “installation” directions on the package aren’t very good. You do need to take the clear plastic “cover” off to adhere the socket to your phone. This might be obvious to some people, but I struggled for a while. The directions don’t mention the plastic. They only show popping it out of the package and attaching it to your phone. There was a little bit of the sticky beyond the plastic, and removing the plastic felt like I was doing something I wasn’t supposed to. (As in going against the way the device was actually designed.) I personally think they need to re-write the directions to be more clear. How many people return the devices because, like me, they didn’t realize there was more to installation than what was pictured? I’m going to say I wouldn’t recommend this product, but only because my experience wasn’t as amazing as I would have liked. It might be just what you’re looking for though...

    I thought of this two years ago and my idea was a little more ergonomic him and you know had grooves for fingers but no you know cover the glove type thing but wow stuck this on the back of my daughters phone and she is the master of thumb typing in app switching anything you can think of with one thumb she's faster than A racehorse on Snapchat. I don't like that it's adhesive I know there's not many other options suction cup stink and I'm obviously magnetic won't work so it has to be adhesive him but it's on the outside of the case so you could always get Goo gone or something. But I after trying it myself I went out looking for one one criticism is that there is not enough designs in sizes and it would be nice to be able to make a custom one online so if you were listening company whoever makes it you know pump that up I'll take a finders fee. I will grab a black one and stick it on the back of my OtterBox now this is where we may have problems because it the other boxes Robert and it does have a little bit to give when you pull so what's the release of sticks and I stick my fingers in and I wonder if the rubbers gonna pull in the back we will see I will come back and update if possible but definitely cool and definitely helpful so you don't keep dropping your phone while you're using It

    Pure brilliance! Yes, for what it is, it might be overpriced. So what; so is that double latte or Monster Energy Drink. This thing works! Works better than that double latte or Monster drink! I use it on a LG V20. That phone is hard / tiresome to hold in one hand and use the other to work it. No more. “Pop” out comes a little button to slide between my fingers, then perfect! Fits right in the palm of my hand. Pro tip; pop it out, place it between your fingers comfortably, me, I use pointer and middle on the left, THEN set the phone where you want it. The placement on the rear of the phone may not be symmetrical for you OCD folks, but the placement in your palm is key right? Tis better to work good than look good no? Use as a stand? Likely not, but get two and make a go of it? This thing kicks butt. Well worth the $10.00. Buy it. Buy it! BUY IT!

    So, I finally jumped on the pop socket bandwagon, and against my better judgment, spent like $14 on this pretty iridescent pink one. Sure, it was cute. I did quickly love the way I could handle my phone by the pop socket extended. I also purchased the holder for my vehicle dash. So, everything was all good until, for absolutely not reason at all, the thing just fell off one, literally in my lap. I was not pulling or tugging on it, or somehow handling it that might make the adhesive want to break free. So, here we have the whole root of the problem with these things. It is a wonderful concept and they DO want you to be able to it around "up to 3 times." But, I can tell you, it wont last through 3 fall off's. After the first sudden release, I was so glad I wasnt just holding onto the socket and not my phone, but two, they are wayyyyy to expensive to have such crappy, adhesive. I felt it and it was hardly sticky at all. I wont buy another.

    This product is awesome! I first heard about popsocket from a morning radio show I listen to. They gave them out free at an event they had and I loved it! It is very strong! So strong that I had to move it to a different location on the back and had to use a butter knife to remove it LOL! But the glue is so strong that it easily stuck back on and have had no problems with it falling off at all! This one I purchased was for a friend for her birthday. She had tried those ring versions of phone holders but said she wanted one like mine so I got it for her and she loved it too! I bought more for myself and my daughter as well! Very helpful for holding your phone for texting and selfies. I would have such a hard time taking selfies with my phone being so big (V20) and my hands so small but with popsocket it makes it sooo much easier! I haven't tried them on a tablet so not sure how well they work but definitely good on phones. Oh and also very useful as a stand as well but works better when you place it in the middle of your phone for use as a stand. All in all love this product and definitely recommend it!

    I bought this little gizmo because I was in search of something that would help prevent my clumsy self from dropping my phone pretty much all the time when I tried taking one handed pictures (shoulder problems, not because I'm obsessed with selfies lol). This unassuming little circle has helped in more ways than expected: I have not dropped my phone once while using it, so now, when I replace my Zagg glass protector, the guy won't say..."hey! see ya next week..." Also, I have a case with a slide open back where I keep business cards. The cover has always been a little difficult to slide open, i.e., it took some muscle, which is never good in front of a prospect. This PopSocket created a handle that now gently slides that frustrating door open with EASE. Yay! Finally, it is handy as a kickstand of sorts. If I am watching video clips or a movie on my phone, I simply pull the PopSocket all the way out and it tilts my phone at the perfect angle for viewing. Who knew that less than ten bucks on this gadget would prove to be one of the best phone-related decisions I've made. Get one...they aren't all pink. :)

    Awesome and very handy gadget. This provides so many benefits - some I knew I wanted but didn't realize how much, and some I never imagined. It can be a kickstand with two, three, or four different tilt angles. Place one popsocket on the phone, a little off-center. Rotating your phone changes the height of the kickstand. (This works vertically and horizontally with any placement I've tried.) They can be popped out halfway or fully, & they'll stay there. It's a great grip, & fingers can slide & readjust easily while using it. I can reach anywhere one-handed on this phone. Using two of them offers a way to wrap your headset wires around them for storage. (This is not perfect as they don't collapse cleanly, & they catch on edges of pockets & purses, etc. I still like it. I can unplug my headset to use the phone speaker, & it stays right there). The adhesive can be endlessly repositioned. It's that gel that you can just rinse off & make brand new.

    This is my second one. 1st lasted several months. Bought the holder for mounting in friends' cars without Navigation. ; D Makes it easy to carry phone without pockets, around the house. Place pop socket between fingers on outside of hand and hand is now free! This, attached to my safety covered large note phone, is able to set on a surface in landscape, not portrait. The sticky backs are easily attached to a cleaned surface on your item and easy to remove by pealing up from the edge. I clean my cover regularly and peal off the pop socket if there was excess heat which made it peal off. Clean the pop socket and sticky tab with soap and water and allow to air dry. Clean surface of item (I use rubbing alcohol) and allow to air dry before pressing into place. Took a couple of weeks to figure out exacly where I wanted it placed but was really easy to move. Used many different attachments and phone covers, etc., in the past. Love these!

    If you asked me 4 months ago to review this product I would have said that I would tire of it and take it off my phone. NOT THE CASE!! This is one of those simple products that carries its functional weight. Is it somewhat bulky on the phone?... yeah... kinda. Is it pretty? .. no. Does it help you hold your phone in pretty much every situation?.. YES! I highly recommend this, especially if you have a iPhone 6 Plus or other "phablet" sized devices. It makes taking pictures easier as you are not lightly holding your phone worried that someone might bump you & cause you to drop your phone. It also makes one-handed typing a lot easier & less of a balancing act. It also is useful as a kickstand for watching videos or just keeping your device propped up in a meeting. Well worth the money. Expect each one to last 3-4 months, you will find yourself playing with the "popping" mechanism & like any plastic it will wear out over time.

    My son convinced me to purchase one of these PopSocket finger grips because he knows what is cool AND I DON'T. Initially, I thought it was a waste of money, but I was wrong! I don't know what I would do without this little gem. I use it as a finger grip and a kickstand for my iPhone 8 Plus and it really is a tremendous help. My phone no longer falls over when I lean it up to video chat.. I LOVE using it to help support my phone while texting, (I use my thumbs to text), and when the manufacturer says it can be repositioned, they are not kidding. I have repositioned it on my Otter phone case about 20 times (use it for two different positions depending on what I need). I figured I could reposition it once or twice before its tackiness wore out. Not so. It is still as tacky as it was the first time I placed it on my phone case. I love this little thing and, contrary to what I first thought, it is definitely money well spent.

    I bought the pop socket in the hopes that it'd make things easier for me when I want to text with one hand, catch Pokémon in Pokémon go with one hand, choose songs on my phone when I'm driving with one hand, etc. My hands aren't too small but just small enough that doing things with one hand on an iPhone 6s in an otter box cover is just hard enough. I found that the popsocket really helped with that. I'd say that it's made all these things easier for me and that I don't drop my phone nearly as often because of it. I found that it stuck just fine on the back of my otterbox case. I haven't had to reposition it at all and as long as you follow the instructions, I think it is held in place relatively well by the adhesive. I doubt I will have to reposition it, since I love where it is currently placed. Since I chose to place mine right in the bottom middle of my phone (where my hands naturally go when I'm trying to text), I can't say how well it does as a stand, since I've never had to use it for that purpose.

    Before I picked up this bedazzled glitter knob I could barely watch anything on my phone. Now that I've got the Pop Socket adhered to the back I can't stop watching YouTube vids. Before I picked up this bling bling sparkle bump I actually fumbled my phone while I was mowing the lawn and watching fail compilations. The irony right? When I tried to catch it I wound up swan diving off my ride around and putting my head through my neighbors fence. Once he pried my head from the broken boards he actually suggested I pick one up. I took his advice to not head butt his fence and it's completely changed my life. The Pop Lock and Drop It Socket is pretty cool too. Just like they say...Once you Pop you can't stop using your phone and alienating all of your friends and family.

    Nice A/V reciever - the manual is pretty limited

    The product itself was fine (the self-calibration for the speakers was nice - it recognized the correct speaker setup and via the included mic, calibrated the audio such that it sounds great now for movies, TV and music. A gap was the manual. It was stated that it was a 'basic' manual and included several hook up diagrams (obviously, few manuals include all options) but there was a lack of information for the features/controls of the receiver and there was quite a bit of 'self-discovery' and exploration. Also, the front panel, while elegantly simple, is almost lacking buttons/controls which on my prior Sony made it easier to "find the right button" and press it vs get out the remote (which I don't use), hunt-n-click for the right menu element to change a desired setting. Also, I miss a 'switched' accessory outlet on the back - I use those for powered cabinet cooling fans. It would be nice to customize the display more - you can rename the output and dim it but it would be nice to have a clock/time/date or change the way the display 'reads.'
