    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?

    My honest opinion, look at loopy cases. I didn’t want to buy into the hype until I started using one. Couldn’t get use to it at first, but now I can’t believe I didn’t use one previous. I have the matte black for my x

    My youngest son does. I gave it a try, and although I see the why people like using it, it’s not for me, especially in a full time capacity.

    I'll look into those cases as well, I've noticed when using a kickstand case it places the volume rockers on the bottom that's why I was looking for something that I can rotate any direction

    I used a PopSocket for a while, the biggest issue with them for me is placement. I can’t find a good place to put it where it works good enough for me.

    I use a ring loop. Find it very useful to handle the 8 plus. And I can place it at an angle while reading books or watching videos.

    The only drawback is that the phone can never be kept flat on its back.

    I use a loopy in matte wine color. My parents have an s8+ and a note eight and they actually each have two pop sockets on their cases. My mom swears by them.

    My kids do. I was the cool mom last Christmas for putting pop sockets in their stockings. They’ve since gotten a few others. It’s all the rage here where we are. They’ve even gotten their great grandmother to use one.

    For me, it was short lived.. I think what I didn’t like about them was not laying flush on my desk. My phone just wobbled around when I tapped my phone to change a song or checked a text message..

    The one issue I have with them like others have stated is that my phone wouldn’t lay flat and it would just wobble. Was looking into getting a dock that props up my phone for my desk and it wouldn’t work with a ring or loop attached to the back

    What about wireless charging? does the Pop Socket interfere? I have a Loopy Case but have not put it on my 8+ and wireless charging is very important to me

    I would imagine they would interfere because the charger couldn't make close enough contact.

    That is what I am thinking, That would be a deal breaker for me

    I never really understood why people liked them so much because I thought they looked silly and seemed like they'd be uncomfortable in my pocket. My niece had one on her phone, and I had to do something on it. Then I understood why people like them. I still don't think the advantage of using one is enough for how uncomfortable it would make my phone in my pocket though.

    Like you, I see the attraction, But having to take it off before putting it in my pocket or before placing it on a wireless charging base was too much of a hassle for 'me'.

    This is purely anecdotal, but from what I've noticed most people that use them that I've seen are kids and women. Women generally carry purses, so their phones are in their pockets less. Maybe that's why.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I've seen, too, with a few exceptions.

    I will say I had no issues with putting my phone in my pocket when I did use a PopSocket.

    Question my wife has for these. She is interested in getting one but can you wireless charge with this on? Anybody who can answer this for her, it would greatly be appreciated.

    I love Popsockets. Even bought a few blank ones without graphics so I could make my own stickers to put on them with my die cutting machine.

    You can, yes. Although it works much better if the phone is laying horizontal on a charging mat rather than leaning upright on a stand. I have a slanted stand and it does work, but it's wonky kinda.

    I dont like using anything but a case on my phone. Otherwise it makes it too much of a bear to slide it into a pocket or cubbyhole.

    They can be flattened against the back of the phone. While they're not completely flat, they don't stick out enough to cause an issue going in a pocket. I put mine in my pocket on a daily bases, several times a day..... I typically have my hands full going up or down two flights of stairs in my house, so my phone goes in my pocket.
