If you have already seen tons of phone stands, but you still wonder whether they’re a convenient buy, you are in the right place to help make up your mind.

The average American checks their phone 96 times a day and spends  an average of 5.4 hours a day on their phone, according to a 2019 study held by tech care company, Asurion (source: Prnewswire)

If you think about your personal situation, you might find yourself agreeing with these numbers. Moreover, you might also think about all those times when you couldn’t find a comfortable position while using your smartphone without dropping your phone on your face or having your arm going numb!

Phone stands come to your aid: indeed, these innovative gadgets prop up your devices and small consumer electronics (some stands are strong enough to support tablets) while they sit on hard surfaces or are connected inside your car. No matter the placement, the aim is just one: to hold your phone while you talk on the phone, while driving, watch videos or work.

While looking for a phone stand, always keep in mind to choose a light-weight, small and ergonomic one. Check out some of the most popular types:


1) Basic

Basic phone stands are perfect for sitting on your desk. They are generally made of metal, which makes them very strong and resistant. They have a minimalist and modern design which makes them suitable for all types of smartphones and small tablets. If you opt for this type of stand, always check whether there is a hole for your charging cable, otherwise you won’t be able to use it while recharging your device.
Negative side note: they do not have an adjustable angle, so they work best only when you’re in front of them.


2) Foldable and adjustable

Folding options are great for travelers. They’re easy to carry around, highly adaptive to many situations and easily adjustable to get the perfect view. The most common material for this kind of stand is hard plastic, which makes the stand light-weight yet resistant. Foldable holders come in classic as well as funny shapes, like this Sports Car-Shaped Phone Holder.


3) Pop Sockets

This stand has a revolutionary design that has gone viral quickly. It has a small knob attached to the back of the phone that pops out when pulled. You can use it not only as a stand but also as a grip when you have your phone in your hands.

They come in thousands of colors, patterns and shades and they can be personalized as well. This can be a small but great gift for your loved ones.


4) Car mount

Car mounts are indeed popular and essential: whether your car supports Bluetooth technology or not, having your phone conveniently available while driving can highly reduce the risk of distractions. These phone holders come in a wide range of shapes: from the magnetic mount to the bizarrely shaped ones.

When choosing one, take into consideration whether:

  • it rotates;
  • it adjusts to fit your car air bracket;
  • there is a gravity support to avoid falling;
  • there is a reserved charging port;
  • it supports your phone size;

For us, the MemPlaza choice is this Circular Phone Holder: widely compatible with mainstream smartphones up to 6 inches, 360° Full Rotation, charging port and easy to insert.


5) 2-in-1: Wireless Charging Stands

An upgraded version of the basic car bracket is the wireless charging phone holder. Besides holding your phone while driving, it also supports wireless charging functions so you can always have a fully-charged phone even after a long ride.

However, only the latest smartphones support wireless charging. If your phone does not, you can purchase a wireless charger receiver to plug into your charging port to enable the wireless function.


6) 2-in-1: Phone Holder Bluetooth Speaker

An upgraded version of the basic car bracket is the wireless charging phone holder. Besides holding your phone while driving, it also supports wireless charging functions so you can always have a fully-charged phone even after a long ride.

However, only the latest smartphones support wireless charging. If your phone does not, you can purchase a wireless charger receiver to plug into your charging port to enable the wireless function.

Besides the several sizes, colors and features, mobile phone stands are definitely helpful and practical. They will keep your phone easily accessible and help avoid holding your phone in uncomfortable positions that may cause health problems in the long run.
