I Tried The FlipOut From Nite Ize And Here's What Happened

Find me on:

I’ve owned a lot of mobile phones, starting with the original Apple iPhone and including devices from Samsung, LG, Apple, BlackBerry, Xiaomi and more. They keep getting slimmer and lighter, and the boxy design of those early years has long since been supplanted by sleek, elegant, smooth materials and finishes. Problem is, it also turns out that this sleek design makes the newest generation of phones much easier to accidentally drop.

It’s an epidemic, actually, as evidenced by the fact that at least 25% of all smartphones have cracked screens or been repaired after purchase. (Not a scientific analysis, just an informal poll of friends and colleagues.) The problem is so widespread that there are now stores that are focused exclusively on replacing broken phone screens. Their stores can be found in the local shopping mall and adjacent to just about every college campus in the United States.

What all these people with damaged screens didn’t know is that the Nite Ize FlipOut combination handle and stand would make their phones much harder to slip out of their hands. It also would make their phones more functional too. Check out the FlipOut in action in this photo:

The FlipOut itself is an ingenious little device that sticks onto the back of a phone or phone case, flips out as needed, and can serve as a handy stand and holder when needed. Done with it? The gizmo folds flat when you don’t want it in the way. It also comes in four different finishes so you can choose the one that looks best with your case.

The real win to me with the FlipOut is that it’s also a simple and effective stand for my smartphone. I often have my phone sitting on my desk, table or other workspace, screen up, so being able to open the FlipOut and have the screen angled for optimal viewing is fantastic. It also works as a stand for vertical or horizontal viewing. Which means it’s perfect for streaming live sports or binge watching your favorite series.

Phones keep getting more expensive - my Apple iPhone X cost over $1,000 - and the cost of repairing a broken screen keeps going up too. The modest investment of a Nite Ize FlipOut can alleviate the day to day risk of the phone slipping out of your hand, and it doubling as a stand is a nice added benefit. But even if you have an entry level smartphone you’ll appreciate the functionality and flexibility of the FlipOut, so check it out.
