Many of us have a small collection of phone accessories. Admit it, your phone case obsession that has gone from cute palm prints to designer mini-trunks. Another piece that goes well with a paper thin phone is a ring holder that serves also as a stand when streaming some beauty how-to videos, then comes your cable organizer, car holder, and…you get the picture.
Celebrities share the same pain. Think about how DJ Khaled manages to Snap with just one hand on the jetski. Some celebrities are a little savvier than others. Enter the PopSocket.
If you’ve been lurking on social media enough, you’ll notice a circular accessory attached to the back of the phones of Gigi Hadid and Jared Leto. My lurking went on farther as I stumbled on the PopSocket website. I then discovered this stand, cable organizer, and phone grip all in one.

Made not just for phones but other handheld electronic devices, the premise of a PopSocket is simple: “Get a grip” on them while on the go. Simply stick it on non-silicone or non-waterproof surface and you can use your device without fear of it easily slipping.
They come in a variety of designs as well to match you phone, your mood, and your outfit. Sold at ten dollars a piece, it’s not much of a splurge but still the equivalent of two lattes. Plus, think about shipping as they are based abroad. Then again, it was hailed as the best compact stand by The Wall Street Journal.
Also, did I mention that Michael Phelps has one?
Do you think it’s worth it?
