We tested the PopSockets smartphone grips

When it comes to keeping a smartphone on a table to watch a video or write a message, this is often a hassle … unless you have a little “PopSockets” on your smartphone! But what is a Popsocket?

A very small object that can be used to hold your phone on a support but also provide a real grip so as not to be stolen from you. We tested a few items from the PopSockets range. And if those little colorful circles seem like gadgets at first glance, then they’ve come in very handy! Presentation.

Who is PopSockets?

PopSockets is a consumer electronics accessories company founded by David Barnett in 2012. In 2014 the company sold around 30,000 handles, 4 years later in 2018 60 million handles were sold … An exponential growth that shows a need and not a simple device!

What is PopSockets?

PopSockets are initially small handles that are designed for easy handling of the smartphone. They also serve as a support to put your smartphone on a flat support. With Popsockets support, you can also keep your phone upright and hang it anywhere!

As a result, PopSockets innovated in terms of the handle, introducing small mirrors or pockets in which you can store up to 3 credit cards or documents of the same size. And the advantage is that it is possible to swap out the small colored circles, for example to adapt the PopSockets to your outfit. Alone the PopSockets credit card is not interchangeable, the sticker system is not the same!

The little novelty for 2021!

This year PopSockets innovates with the PopGrip SOG Multi-Tool Black. A handy little tool to replace your colored circle … with it you can open a package without harming yourself, or open a can during your lunch break or picnic! The little tool sits on top of the circle and is held there by a magnet as well as from the sides with no risk of losing it. And it can even help you DIY as it is compatible with 4mm hexagon screwdrivers.

What we thought of our PopSockets!

With two older teenagers at home, the package received was quickly shared! We were amazed at the flawless hold of the sticker that holds the system together. It is much harder to peel off than it is to stick it on. It can be stuck on a shell or directly on the smartphone. However, we found that a silicone case is better supported than the smartphone itself (iPhone XR RED in our test).

The PopSockets allow a real hold of the smartphone on a horizontal support. Most importantly, you can use it to hold your smartphone when you receive a call, for example. When you’re on the phone, you reduce the risk of your smartphone being stolen by holding it with PopSockets.

Credit card support is handy, but a bit bulky on the smartphone. The mirror support was unanimously approved by a young 20-year-old. And it’s a real mirror on the smartphone to touch up a mascara or examine a black point! Excellent according to the tester!

After all, the support really hangs everywhere and holding the smartphone is powerful! When you slide your smartphone’s PopSockets into the holder, it stops moving and can even hang on street furniture for the duration of a video or selfie!
