This thing is awesome. I read a lot on my phone, which is a Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Since it is such a large phone, it can be difficult or tiresome to hold the phone and swipe the screen without losing grip of the phone. With this device, I feel that my phone is more secure, and I find it easier to swipe anywhere on the screen with my thumb while holding the phone wiht the same hand by the pop socket on back. It pops out easily, and then pops back flat easily too when you want to slide the phone into your purse or wallet.
