I'm currently using a Bunker Ring on the back of my 6s Plus to help with one-handed use. It really helps, but I'd like to hear if other people are using an accessory to help, and how they like it. I live in NYC and really need to use my phone one-handed much of the time (e.g. when I'm on the subway, when walking home with groceries, etc.) and cannot do so without some assistance.

I purchased the Bunker Ring, and also and iRing from Amazon. I like the iRing a little better, but it was too small and would get stuck on my knuckle, so I switched to the bigger Bunker Ring. It's actually a little too, big, but I'm sticking with it for now. I can securly hold the phone cover the whole screen one handed.

Someone showed me a FlyGrip this weekend and I'm intrigued to try it or hear from people who have.

So if you use one of these types of one-handed assist accessories (Bunker Ring, iRing, FlyGrip, nobiggi, etc.), please share your experience. Thanks!

Pop Socket is great too.

Wow. Never heard of them, but great reviews on Amazon. I'm surprised how many of these types of accessories exist. Have you been using it long? Does it really help a lot?
I used the Pop Socket and really enjoyed it. It did eventually fall off my leather case, but then again, I had moved it around a few times so would expect the backing to be less sticky. It never left a mark. Once I fine the 2nd one that came with it, I'll try it again.

I like how you can use it to stand up the phone and also goes relatively flat.

Thanks. I had been leaning towards the Flygrip, which is sorta similar to the Pop Socket, but it's more expensive and not sold on Amazon. I may have to check the Pop Socket.

Pop socket is great. Definitely recommend it over the fly grip.

I did a little more research and just ordered a Handl case. It's like a case with a flygrip type thing built in. Looks perfect (except it only comes in black for now). It was made for 6 Plus, but hopefully will fit the 6s Plus. It's scheduled to be delivered today from Amazon (I love Amazon Prime), so I'll update when i receive it.

I love the iRing!! If I had had this what the 6 plus came out I would have kept it. It makes my 6s plus very useable one handed.

So I didn't like the Handl case at all. It was stiff and I was not able to reach the entire screen one handed while using it. I have already sent it back.

This is what I'm currently using. I like it better than the Bunker Ring because the ring itself is smaller, giving me a tighter grip. I'm still thinking of trying out the Flygrip, but for now, the iRing is my favorite.

I really like the Pop Sockets. Unfortunately, my phone won't fit on my nightstand charger or my car mount when they're installed. I ordered the TFY hand strap. I need to try to adjust the clips to fit better on my Speck Candyshell case, but overall I love the strap itself. I don't know if it's something I'd keep on my phone 24/7, but it's definitely great for using my phone while I'm in the bath. (I actually dropped my iPhone 6 in the bubble bath once; luckily it survived with no ill effects.) It will also be great for when I want to take a lot of pics.

I think you will love the iRing! I took my phone in the spa the other day... although briefly and I felt totally fine doing it. It helps me just hold it all the time.

PS....I had the sweetest bunny forever..... 11 years. Well, she wasn't the sweetest I guess because of how she was bred but I did love her so much;).

My wife got the iRing for her 6s+ and I liked it enough to buy one for my 6s. Only complaint is the size is too small for a couple of my fingers. I like the ability to use it as a stand.

The bunker ring, which is very similar to the iRing, has a bigger ring size.

How thick is the iRing when it's folded flat? I'm worried it would have the same problem the Pop Socket has of not working with my charging stand and car mount.

I volunteer with a rabbit rescue and have 6 of my own. Bunnies are wonderful <3

Here's a pic of mine. I saw the pop sockets at a store and those seem much more cumbersome. I still put my phone in my pocket at times. I don't like the 6s plus in my pocket as much as my 6... But the iring is a non issue for that. Does the pic help? You can also change the position of the iRing for whatever works for you but I like it here.
