    I had ordered a few popsockets from China somewhere last January and I’m still waiting for them.
    Luckily today there was a big event in the city and some people where selling buttons and other gadgets. To my surprise there was pop sockets too. I immediately got me a few

    They’re amazing and I’m baffled that I haven’t bought them any sooner.

    Still not a fan! But I do think they have their merit. Glad you found some to use @Tartarus! I'm actually intrigued by Speck's new Grab Tabs... Here's a link to the iMore article about them which was posted last week:


    I think I'd like this product better because I could still use charge my phone on the qi (Chee) charger!

    Believe it or not, I find my GF's pop socket very helpful to hold her X. Although it's hello kitty once you pop it out you can use it as a stand. It's kinda girly though and definitely not a boys thing.

    I have thought about getting one several times, but I wireless charge and have my phone in either a lifeproof, or a defender. Dropping my phone isn’t as big of worry, but one handed use would be a lot nice with a pop socket. Think it just ultimately comes down to I prefer wireless charging over ease of holding my phone.

    My sister uses one. I kind of get it, and it does double up as a stand, but I think it's more of a fashion accessory than anything.

    Comparing these to rings, popsockets are so much safer as you don't potentially get your fingers caught in it and end up subjecting them to hard metal.

    Don’t use a pop socket and have no plans to.

    There’s a built in one on my case: I never use it, but it may be because my phone is small, it’s just a X. With an XS Max, who knows?

    Switched to the Quadlock case/system so I don't use anything anymore.

    If you use it, you will love it!

    I'm on the fence about getting a pop socket for my X and wondering how many actually use them. Do you remove them and swap between cases? Are they a gimmick or actually nice to have?
    Me not yet but I will try one soon.

    My kids all use them. I got one at a charity event and tried it. It’s nice but I don’t love it or hate it. It was a generic branded one and kept falling off so I ditched it.

    i picked up one of these Otterbox cases that has a built in pop socket. I got such a good deal on it so I figured I would try it. I actually really like it. The pop socket folds down and you can use wireless charging. I had tried the original pop socket but hated it, couldn’t get it to stay on and couldn’t use wireless charging.
