I learned early on that my little hands are not compatible with the modern day smart phones, with some of the screens reaching up to 7inchs I struggle to wrap my thumb around the touch screen whilst maintaining a firm grip on the phone, this has resulted in two broken phones and numerous cracked screens.
For the last three years I have used phone cases with attachments on the back to help me hold onto it, but these are often rather bulky cases that end up falling apart after a few months. The Clckr Stand is a smart phone case that combines both a stand and grip handle all in one, available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Samsung S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. They also have the universal grip which sticks directly to your phone or your existing case, the navy blue design makes it stand out from the crowd whilst remaining smart enough for a professional environment.
The profile of this case is very slim, making it easy to slip in your back pocket without it catching or adding extra bulk. Opening the stand feels a bit awkward to begin with, you need to push down on the top until you hear a click, this then opens up the stand so it can be wrapped around the hand, the inner lining is soft and comfortable against the skin. The stand can then be folded back on itself and secured with another click, this can then be used as a sturdy stand which can hold the phone up in landscape mood for watching movies or portrait mode for video calls.
The rest of the case is made from a grippy almost leather effect material making it easier to hold, even with sweaty hands, when you are done with the stand you simply fold it down and click it into place again. All the cut outs around the edge of the case link up perfectly with the mic, camera, charging port etc and the rounded edges will protect the phone against drops and knocks. This inexpensive case makes holding even the largest phones much easier, the soft and flexible stand can become scuffed and marked over time, but it still remains a solid stand. RRP £34.99
