PopSocket Review

I’d been eyeing up a PopSocket for a while before I actually plucked up the courage to buy one. They aren’t too expensive, but spending £10 on something that I wasn’t sure I’d even like, let alone use was daunting, especially when I was meant to be saving money.

I’d heard loads of good things about them, though, and I’d been recommended them a lot and now I've got one I can totally see why. One problem that I have with my phone is it’s size. I'm 5ft, I have small hands, but for some reason, I decided to get an iPhone 6s Plus when I upgraded my phone, and sometimes gripping my phone can be a bit of a nightmare, especially if I'm holding my crutches. I’ve found that having a PopSocket has made this so much easier, as since it sticks onto my phone so securely, I can just hold on to the PopSocket itself without worrying that my phone will fall and smash.

They also make brilliant stands if you’re watching something in bed or if you’re trying to read a Pinterest recipe while you're cooking or you can wrap your headphone cord around them to stop them getting tangled. I was worried that adding a PopSocket might make my phone too bulky (since it’s already a struggle to fit it into most of my pockets) but honestly, it doesn’t make that much difference to the thickness of your phone.

I can’t imagine being without a PopSocket on my phone and they come in so many different colours and styles that there really is one for everyone. I’ll probably be featuring PopSockets again in my ‘Disability Life Hacks’ post later on this month because it really has made my life a hell of a lot easier – is a PopSocket something you’d try?
