We’ve all been there, you’re trying to nail the perfect selfie, but just can’t quite reach that camera button so end up with a shot of yourself pulling a pained face that’s destined to be deleted. 10 attempts later, you’re still no further forward. So far, so #mystruggle, and let’s face it, we’re all a bit over the selfie stick now right? Cue PopSockets, the genius new phone gadget that’s going to change your selfie game for good.
What are these PopSockets we hear you ask? Well, they’re basically expanding phone grips and stands that stick to the back of your phone to stop you dropping it all over the place and taking weird selfie faces. You can also use them to prop up your phone – perfect for watching vids on a train – and wrap your headphones around – goodbye tangles. The possibilities are endless, and, if that hasn’t got you rushing out to buy some, we spotted Gigi Hadid using hers to snap a selfie with Kendall Jenner backstage at the Balmain show in Paris. Not that they need any help when it comes to nailing the perfect picture.
And don’t worry about them adding bulk to your phone – PopSockets ‘pop’ whenever you need them to, and when you don’t, you can just flatten them down. The hard part is choosing whether to go for a bold colour, cool pattern or cute animal motif. But for £6.99 a pop (no pun intended) why not treat yourself to a couple? Trust us, your Instagram feed will thank you for it.
