It just a little bigger than I can really hold one handed comfortably but I remembered I had an iRing with my plus phones and loved it. Got another one and now the Max is perfect. I think for any person with smaller hands...try one even on smaller phones. It really works well!!! I can still put the phone in my pocket.

I smell spam, you know the product is top notch when they use an iPhone 4 in their promo pics.
Lol. Hardly. But funny. I have used the ring many times.. but I’m not a spammer. I’m a soccer mom who loves apple devices.

Or rather than that stupid looking thing you can just use an XS, X or SE and not look like a colossal dork.

I see your name is for a reason.

If it isn’t for you...then MOVE along. I have run half marathons holding my plus sized phone with my ring.
I would much rather have the bigger phone than not use it.

That website is ridiculously janky.

Photo of an iPhone X (Xs Max?) with the product title being for an 8plus, and the description listing the measurements of an X.

They need desperate help with their website before I purchase anything from it.

this is such a bad idea.

1) the phone cant lie flat on the table anymore
2) it might rip my pockets
3) i honestly cant see how it helps a small hand better grip a big device. the ring is so big and loose that it will just slip out
4) it totally destroyed the iphone aesthetics

Actually it actually works quite well. I don't use one because of the reasons you listed but it does help. It's hard to explain it in writing but the ring is set in a position where it keeps your finger and phone immobilized.

Definitely not attaching some ring to the back of my phone. I will say I see quite a few ‘Pop-sockets’ Being used, Which to be honest, is a fairly ingenious idea Thats well made and executed to expand and contract, but I don’t prefer either.

The ring is actually a really solid product. Its not for everyone as it does cause a little extra size on the back and the phone won't lay flat on its back. I know many people who put it on every phone they get.

I perfected my iPhone XS Max by stop reading the thread in this forum about the screen being yellow. That thread made me paranoid about the screen but now the screen is perfect again because I haven’t looked at the thread for 24 hours.

I have one, it’s been on the last two phones I’ve had and it works perfect for one hand use and It’s not going to rip your pants

Sounds like you haven’t tried it. lol! Never ripped a pair of my jeans and the ring is perfect. I have tried popsockets too and this works much better. Clearly it is isn’t for everyone. It’s just a friendly suggestion for anyone who feels their phone is too big for their hand! Clearly something like this works bc loopy makes cases with a similar feature.

I have pop sockets and so do my kids...and for me they won’t work nearly as well for one handed usage. The ring can also hold your phone in a viewing position. And it is way more secure for texting one handed. I much prefer it. I actually had a pop socket on the Max for the first few days and switched.
