The tech tragedy of the 21st century aren’t exploding smartphones or those weird zen lawn cases; it’s the inescapable reality that after years and years of trying to make mobile phones smaller, the trend is now towards making smartphones bigger! All this is a disappointment to me and my small, dainty hands.
It was a cumbersome affair when I finally succumbed to such technological advances in the form of the bigger iPhone 6s, which I could hardly grasp. Obviously, there was something amiss in the hand-to-phone ratio.
Being the millennial I am, there was simply no way I’d part with my phone or be bothered with using two hands for texting.
I had to find a solution, for the sake of cute selfie optimization (yes, no selfies if you can’t even hold on to your phone). I sought to solve this dilemma with, well, more technology.
Phone rings, knobs, and hooks all served the purpose, but they really didn’t look cute and were bulky AF.
My search for what I dubbed the “small hands selfie enabler” took an exciting turn when I discovered Ungrip. I was ready to use it without even knowing what it was for just because of how pretty it looked.
As nice as it looked, the small thing also packed a punch in functionality.
The cloth strap allows for versatility when handling your phone without adding much to the size of your gadget (because the last thing we need is an even bigger phone size).
Ungrip is surprisingly strong, too!
The cloth strap itself is replaceable so you don’t have to worry about it getting dirty, and the mount has a hole you can loop lanyards or extra straps in.
Ungrip uses 3M adhesive tape (which is surprisingly powerful) to stick to your phone or case.
It comes with extra tape (and instructions!) in case you’d want to remove and mount the Ungrip on something else.
Honestly, I didn’t think such cute things can be so useful.
I have complete faith in Ungrip when it comes to my phone, and that says a lot because not even death will pry my phone from my cold, dead hands. If you still don’t believe me, remember that sometimes you just have to trust and let go.*
