I Caved Into Pop Sockets!
I couldn't help myself! I kept seeing them and fell into the peer pressure rabbit hole, but I'm glad I did. Pop sockets seemed to come from no where and were everywhere the very next day. I caved though because it was only $10 and I wanted to know what the hype was all about. Of course I ordered mine from Amazon...where else would I go...especially when I have Amazon Prime! So once I searched for Pop Sockets, so many came up that it was hard for me to choose! I ended up with the black and white marble Pop Socket.
I got to be honest, I love it! You can extend it by pulling it once for just a little distance or another time for full extension. It easily retracts and still slides into my back pocket, which is what I was worried about.
I am able to hold my phone and have better grip on it but the best feature is being able to have a stand to prop my phone up on a tabletop. I can also wrap my headphone cord around the Pop Socket when I'm done listening to music. Its actually pretty versatile! My major concern was how does it adhere to the phone. I learned by googling but when I did receive the product, all I had to do was peel a sticker off the back to uncover the adhesive and then stick the base to my phone. Its a really strong adhesive but not strong enough to damage your phone or phone case when you want to remove it or place it elsewhere. I am glad to have spent the $10 as I can now prop up my iPhone, which I am surprised Apple hasn't added a a feature yet. Anyways, I may end up purchasing a set to go on my iPad to do the same! There are so many to choose from so happy shopping for your Pop Sockets!Sidenote: If you're currently in school and have a university email to show for it, check out Amazon Prime for college students. Its much cheaper than the standard subscription and you get "FREE" two day shipping on everything! If you're lucky and live in the right region, you may get your products the same day you order them! Comes in handy for buying gifts...just saying!
