Yay! Another product review. This product was part of a giveaway my friends Somewhere With Us (a travel blog/Instagram account) had going on their Instagram account last month. Since learning about the PopSocket, I’ve seen a ton of these neat little gadgets on Instagram. Emma Roberts, Jared Leto, Maisy Stella and Gigi Hadid are only some of the celebrities who have shown their Pop Socket’s off on social media. So what is a PopSocket? A PopSocket is a unique clip that lets you get a better grip of your phone or tablet. The PopSocket also acts as a stand for your device. There are two pieces to one.
One is more of a holder piece, see below. This has a sticky (reusable) adhesive that you can attach to your car’s interior for hands-free talking, or to help navigate on your next road trip. You stick that where ever you pick. Some people even have them on their fridge for when they are watching cooking videos and trying a new recipe. The possibilities are endless. I’ve yet to attach it anywhere, but will likely put it in my car.
The second part is what you attach to the back of your phone, or phone case. It also “pops” out when you pull it – kind of like an accordion. PopSockets work on most cases, unless you have a really texturized or silicone case for your device. At first I put mine right onto my iPhone – over top the Apple logo. It didn’t sit where I wanted it to, so I removed it and moved it a bit lower. To be honest, it was a little tough to get off. I think that’s a good thing though, you don’t want it to fall off easily. When I removed it to reposition it, there was no mark or sticky substance left behind. I put my case on my phone and then put my PopSocket on the back of my case.
They come in a ton of different designs. The ones I received were custom ones that Somewhere With Us had made up. It’s a neat, affordable way to get a better grip on your phone. This makes taking selfies easier and doubles as a stand while watching videos on your device. At first I couldn’t figure out how to use the PopSocket but after watching some videos online I figured it out and how easy they actually are to use. The best part is that they are reusable, you don’t have to worry about switching devices or removing your PopSocket.
