Want the handiness and convenience of a fanny pack without the embarrassment of actually having to wear one? Sometimes all you need is just a few things without carrying around the excess bulk of your wallet or purse. Like I promised in my last blog, here’s a review about…you guessed it, The Phone Pocket™! (please contain your excitement)
I’ve had the Phone Pocket™ on my Samsung Galaxy S6 for about 3 months now and I absolutely love it! It claims to stretch and hold up to 10 cards, IDs or cash, and great for carrying ear buds and coupons. So naturally I shoved everything I could think of inside of it to test it out. Everything was secure even after flipping it upside down and giving it a good shake; not a thing fell out. Even after 3 months of use it hasn’t gotten stretched out and has kept its original size. The only thing I recommend not putting in it is change, that’s the one thing that seemed to fall out occasionally.
It’s very slim (probably about less than half an inch) and fits in my back pocket just fine even with cards inside it. It feels no different than having just my phone in my pocket. Removing just one item from the pocket isn’t difficult and it doesn’t interfere when I’m talking on my phone either.
It also claims that it can be easily removed without leaving any residue, but I like mine too much to remove it and risk losing the stickiness.
Now I’m about to get a little Bill Nye The Science Guy on you…
Some people may have concerns about their cards getting demagnetized because it’s right up against the battery. Cell phones do produce a lot of RF energy (Radiofrequency) but the electromagnetic energy is what you should be worried about. After some research (aka I Googled it) It seems to be unlikely because mos of the energy is the RF energy that won’t affect the credit cards. Also for your protection there’s a built in anti-theft RFID technology which secures your credit card data. (nerd rant over)
The Phone Pocket™ can be used for more than just your phone! It’s also great for creating a pocket anywhere you need one like on a jacket, your gym clothes, purse, bag, desk, other electronics, etc. Anywhere that needs a pocket, the possibilities are endless!
