My phone still has a PopSocket, which is why I love it

Interested in Bob Socketts It seems to come and go relatively quickly. Although they’re still very popular abroad, they seem like a rare sight to be seen in the US, which is odd considering how popular they were in the mid-2010s, to disappear seemingly overnight.

It got to the point where I became the last PopSocket user among my friends. This is unfortunate because, as it turns out, PopSockets are great and I feel like a lot of people are missing out on.

Firm grip on my phone

I have a PopSocket on every one of my phone since 2015 and have never looked back. For me, they are part of mobile security and an essential part of my smartphone experience. With phone screens getting bigger over the years, the phones I’ve used have gotten more and more difficult to hold with just one hand, but the PopSocket gives it a nice grip that I can hold firmly.

Long gone are my days of worry drop my phone And smashing the screen into a thousand little pieces. Instead, I was able to breathe easy knowing that the possibility to take my phone out of my hand was basically non-existent. This has freed me up on a few things, making travel more convenient when it comes to keeping my phone safe. In addition, PopSocket is much cheaper than the replacement screen.

When I was in college, I studied abroad in Australia and would often ride in boats, docks, and other places where dropping a phone could end in complete disaster. I was able to take a lot of Pictures and videosHowever, knowing that my phone was held securely in my hand and that even if there was an unexpected wave or push, it wouldn’t go anywhere.

Safe and secure

This kind of security is only available to me thanks to the convenience and quality of the PopSockets design. It’s because of how safe they made me feel that I was baffled when they apparently left the public eye so quickly. For a year or so after its initial popularity, I felt like you couldn’t go anywhere without being offered a free PopSocket with a company or brand logo affixed to a plastic round backing. Now, it seems that only branded products remain, but they are not on everyone’s phones as they were before.

I think the problem PopSockets had with its initial popularity was the fact that so many imitations had been made, and most of them were of much lower quality than the official brands. This meant that many people were exposed to them by cheap brands that break easily and lack the security that PopSockets provide. As a result, many people may have been left out of the idea of ​​PopSockets in general, which is really unfortunate.

MagSafe PopSockets and more

Fortunately, PopSockets, the company, is still coming up with its initial ideas and continues to produce new phone grip products. relatively new MagSafe PopSocket Eliminates the need to stick the grip in the perfect spot on its first try by magnetically attaching the grip to the back of the iPhone with built-in MagSafe. The MagSafe PopWallet combines the PopSocket grip with the popular add-on functionality of a credit card and cash wallet. The So pair up the company with Otterbox For making phone cases that have built-in PopSocket handles. There is no shortage of new innovations when it comes to phone security in the hand.

PopSockets are the kind of accessory I didn’t know I needed before, but now I can not live without him. I was teaching high school students after school and they were making fun of PopSocket, saying it’s a fad from the past that no one uses anymore. While this may be true depending on who you ask, should that really be the case? Anytime a friend of mine hands me his phone, I feel like I need to keep it with the kind of care normally reserved for a newborn because of how much the phone slips into my hand.

The solution is simple, tell them to get a PopSocket and your days of worrying about broken screens will soon be over.
