Phones are enormous, expensive, and fragile. That’s enough to make any industrial designer wonder why smartphones of today aren’t designed to be easy to grip? Somewhere between the telephones of yesteryear, and the large bricks we try and grip today, we’ve completely forgotten about ergonomic design… and since it’s impossible for smartphones to have handles, and also since pop-sockets are an absolute visual nightmare, here’s the OhSnap, a sleek tool built to complement the sleek frame of your smartphone, but also to give it the gripping ability you deserve.
OhSnap sits directly on the back of any smartphone, with its 3mm thick profile being barely noticeable. Press the center of the OhSnap and the band/handle instantly warps outwards to give you something to grip onto. The otherwise-flat handle assumes a horse-shoe shape, making it easy to hold, or even use as a prop-stand to dock your phone at an angle. You can even go a step further by taking the two ends of the handle and looping them together to form a ring that you can slide your finger into, giving you the ability to hold onto that mammoth of a smartphone as you text with one hand. The loop even rotates so you can use the OhSnap with your left or right hand, in both landscape and portrait mode… or you can just twirl your phone around like a fidget spinner because obviously that’s what most people will end up doing!
The OhSnap’s ability to provide function when needed and recede into the background when wanted is what makes it a superior grip. It slides up and down, letting you reach upper and lower parts of your touchscreen with ease, and the main unit slides out too, for when you want to place your smartphone on a wireless charger. At just 3mm thin, the OhSnap lets you easily slip your phone in and out of your pockets without any hassle, while its ability to be used as a stand or looped for one-hand usage just gives your smartphone the one physical feature it was truly lacking for the past decade… and if that wasn’t enough to seal the deal, the OhSnap is magnetic too, so you can even snap it onto a metal surface like a fridge, locker, gym equipment, or car-mount. I’m not entirely sure how we humans even lived without this accessory.
