Adaptable and sturdy!★★★★★
This slim profile grip is essentially two parts. The beak which you hold and the base which adhears to the phone.
The two pieces are both leather and attached to each other using very nearly a full half of their surface area. Because of this I have no fear of them coming apart any time soon. Furthermore the contact point between them is non mobile, so I could probably fix it with glue IF it detaches due to a freak accident.
The designers used nearly the entire back side of the base half for adheasion. The large size of the sticking surface means that it will never peel off, and the high quality of the gel pad means it can be reused.
If you misalign the placement of the grip you can readjust it, or go as is, because the supporting edge is flat, and not round, your mistake will not be exaggerated when placing it down.
The beak portion is all one part with the magnets inside the leather. The hinges and moving parts are, again, one single piece, reducing the chance of breakage or other issues.
Because of the beak’s shape there are further options for holding it than displayed. I found myself ‘cupping’ it, in a very organic and comfortable way almost like I was holding a rock.
There is some slight discomfort for some of the edges when new, but because of the fact that it is made of actual leather the issues are already starting to fade within an hour, just like with new shoes.
This is an excellent product and I recommend it fully.
Do it all phone grip★★★★★
So I’ve tried different phone grips like ohsnap, popsocket, moft, phone rings.this one is in my opinion the best one. The holes to grip your phone are nice and comfortable doesn’t bother you after using it for a few minutes. The stand is very nice and sturdy holds my galaxy s21 ultra in both angles without tipping over. The magnet is plenty strong to hold up my phone. It looks like it’s going to last for a long time but only time will tell. Only problem I had is the extra magnet I had didn’t work. The glue came off very easy. I haven’t tried using nfc payment yet but I don’t doubt it will work. Overall can really recommend this phome grip!
Favorite grip and stand ★★★★★
Was an original backer, and buying one here, too, because I really like these. I’ve used a couple of other grips (e.g., popsockets, backed a different type of grip that I hated, etc.) and this is by far my favorite. The pop socket is fine, but sticks out a little and honestly, gets a little tiring for my fingers if I use it for a long time. This allows you finger to just slide through and no real “grip” required. Plus it flattens down to be really thin on the phone.
The only downsides I have is some people might think it a bit big when it’s folded out, but that doesn’t bother me in the slightest (actually helps with the way it fits in my palm). Additionally, for about the first few days to a week, the leather material at the edges where you slide your finger in is a little stiff, so it’s almost a bit sharp, for lack of a better word. Within the week, though, it’s perfect (found this when first using it, and when switching from my older one to a newer one). So not only am I buying more for me (had a pop socket come off and almost dropped my new phone at the time into the water, so now super glue all holders to a case, as I never change my cases) but also buying for the gf, as she does change cases fairly regularly.
Also works perfectly as a stand both vertically and horizontally. Definitely well designed and recommended by me.
tldr: favorite grip-type thing, works excellently as a stand, but if the slot around where your finger goes bothers you at all, give it a week to soften, and then you’ll never notice it
