Get a better grip on your phone with a gadget called FlyGrip
Considering all the amazing innovation that occurs in the tech world on a daily basis, sometimes it’s still the simplest of things that might prove to be the most beneficial for a lot of smartphone owners. With smartphone display sizes increasing every year (the “smallest” high-end Android smartphone boasts a 4.7-inch display) one-handed use has become more and more difficult, requiring a balancing act to make sure your phone doesn’t spill out of your hands. This is where Flygrip comes in!
Flygrip is a simple, ergonomically designed hinge accessory that can be attached to the back of your smartphone, or smartphone case, and is designed to fit comfortable around two fingers, allowing you to use your thumb for easy one-handed use and completely removing any chance of the phone slipping out of your hand. When not in use, the front bar sticks onto to the back bar, courtesy of a powerful magnetic lock mechanism.
The biggest question that comes up is whether you’re willing to attach something extra to the back of your device, which will essentially draw away from the beautifully designed smartphones that are available nowadays, while also adding to the thickness of your device. That being said, the Flygrip is definitely be useful for a lot of users, and as seen in the hands-on video above, makes a significant difference in grip and maneuverability. You can also use it as a kickstand in both portrait and landscape mode, depending on how you’ve set up the accessory.
Another issue that might be a cause for hesitation is attaching the accessory (which uses an adhesive) directly to the back of your smartphone, and you might feel more comfortable sticking it to a case. Luckily, Flygrip gives a complimentary case for a lot of smartphones from Samsung, HTC, and Motorola. Flygrip is also available in numerous color options, including black, red, blue, green, magenta, purple, white, and yellow. If you’re planning to switch between devices often, you can also pick up adhesive (3-pack) for $2.95. Whether on a case or directly on the device, Flygrip is attachable on any surface.
