You may have already seen one on in person or across social media. Look Magazine raves that it’s the “genius new phone gadget that’s going to change your selfie game for good.” But what exactly is the PopSocket, and why has it become so popular in such a short amount of time?
What’s a PopSocket?
Accidents can happen. Verizon offers a number of great cases and screen protectors that shield devices from everyday drop and fumble damage. But the PopSocket takes things one step further. Maybe you’re responding to a text message on your way out the door. Or maybe you’re taking a quick selfie to send to friends and family. Either way, it helps to have a better grip on your phone or tablet. Made with reusable adhesive grips that cling securely to most phones and cases, PopSockets slip easily between your fingers for a more convenient way to hold your device. Or, as Business Insider puts it, “For all these moments when you just can't seem to keep a grip on your phone or tablet, you need a PopSocket.”
Not just a good grip.
PopSockets can be used for a variety of useful secondary features. “PopSockets are also perfect for watching YouTube videos hands-free, especially when sharing with an audience,” notes Tech Void. Enjoying a movie from the comfort of the couch? Swap between landscape and portrait view and pick which viewing angle is most enjoyable. Planning on Facetiming an old friend or colleague? Prop up your device and hold conversations hands free. You can even combine a PopSocket with the PopClip mount to secure your device against a dashboard, refrigerator, locker or other sheer surface.
A PopSocket for every personality.
Looks matter. Even if an accessory is incredibly useful, it’s hard to get excited about it unless its appearance fits the bill. Luckily, PopSockets are all about personalization. “PopSockets can also look great,” writes Yahoo, “and come in a variety of shapes and colours that you can match with your nails or clothes.” So whether you’re looking for an eye-catching pattern, a glistening metallic sheen or a muted one-color finish, there’s a PopSocket out there for you. Got a passion for catching ‘em all? Now you can show off your Pokémon pride with a unique Poké Ball-inspired design.
The more the merrier.
PopSockets have become very popular smartphone accessories. But they work great with tablets as well. Attaching two PopSockets to your tablet makes for a secure hold and allows you to use it as a media stand, just like you would with your phone. Tired of tangled, messy headphone wires every time you pull them out of your pocket? Wrap your headphones around two PopSockets to keep your wires tidy.
Stick it. Pop it. Grip it.
Snap selfies, send text messages and watch videos in confidence. Fun to play with and easy to use, PopSockets have been seen in the hands of many of Hollywood’s A-listers. And you can get your hands on one (or more!) right now at Verizon.
