Review & Giveaway: Ungrip – Don’t Drop your Phone!

BlackBerry has been built to last, in most cases, and they have been built quite well, though in the latest debacle – the BlackBerry KEYone screen may not be as well built into the device body like the other devices. But, nonetheless, dropping your phone is without doubt a painful memory, be it for the floor or device which are more often than not, going to get a wound. That said, in Asia, there have been these metal ring can be pasted on the back of the phone that are on sale here cheaply which you can slip a finger through and potentially, hold on to the device should you lose your grip on it. However, whilst ingenious the idea was, that accessory was plagued with issues ranging from the metal ring breaking after a while of usage, to the metal ring being uncomfortable and rigid.

Ungrip - Specials Collection Retail Packaging

Today, here we have an alternative from Ungrip. Instead of using a metal ring, we have a comfortable fabric loop that can come in many different colors or designs which are even hot-swappable. If it was going to spoil, unlike the metal variant, we would be able to visibly see the wear and tear which signals to us it was time to change the grip already.

As of now, Ungrip has 3 different collection features lots of colors and customization for you already but the collection are set to grow, so customization options are boundless.

Out of the retail packaging for Ungrip

Out of the retails packaging, we get an additional set of adhesive, an alcohol cleaning swab to clean the pasting area, a brochure as well the the Ungrip itself.

Ungrip - broken down

The Ungrip itself is made of two portions – the base for sticking to the phone firmly, and ungrip itself that connects to the base.

Ungrip with 3M VHB tape

The Ungrip is stuck to the phone using 3M VHB tapes, which mind you, are high-strength, double-sided acrylic foam tapes that actually builds strength over time. So, will it stick well? Definitely!

Using it for the past few week, the Ungrip held up to the phone pretty darn well, spinning the phone and throwing it around with my finger in it was no issue and it stayed firmly in place.

The 2 piece that makes up Ungrip

Ungrip is available from Ungrip’s shop directly starting from $12 today and I totally recommend you guys to check this out!

  1. 2 months ago, I was riding my bike and my phone fell out my pocket and the screen cracked bad! I have never cracked a screen before! The phone still works and im still using it. Everyone ask “what happen to your phone?!”

  2. it all happened in slow motion… I had my phone in my jacket pocket and right as I began running to the store I realized there was no way the pocket was going to hold the phone securely in there, but I had already begun and by the time I stopped it was too late. the phone fell out and despite having a Spigen case on it the concrete took a bite off one of the edges of the screen!

  3. I like to leave my phone in my lap when I drive. Not because I need access to it, but because there’s really no good place to put it and it’s extremely uncomfortable in my pocket while sitting. Because I leave it in my lap, I can’t count the number of times I forget about it and get out of the car only to have it go skidding across the concrete. Ouch! Damaged several phones doing that.

  4. I like to use my phone whereever i go to the point that i dont see obstacles infront of me and i would literally crash into them and my phone would slip out onto the floor

  5. The worse time i has with my phone was when i in the toilet replying urgent emails and it slipped through my hands into the… water 🙁

  6. I always forget my phone is in my hand and it seems to have wings and fly out of my hand more often than not

  7. My BlackBerry Passport likes to fall out of my hand when I use it especially when I have a smaller hand and I can’t really balance it in my hand. But I absolutely love its typing experience!

  8. My worse experience is dropping it into the soup when I was taking a photo of it!

  9. I must have this for my KEYone when it comes! I have a bad record with dropping my phones when I am talking to others!

  10. My phone is always slipping through my hands when I leave the toilet especially when I have wet hands

  11. I like to keep my phone next to me, especially when i sleep, but I always knock it off the bed by morning

  12. I seem to drop my phone often when I take extended selfies! This could be my lifesaver!

  13. I don’t have an issue with dropping my phones often but my wife does! Hopefully I can win one of these for her, she always comes back one weekend with a broken phone from work!

  14. I am usually very careful with my phones but just yesterday I lost my phone to the pool when some kid bumped into me and my phone flew straight into the pool

  15. I want to win this because I am so prone to dropping my phone! The last time i dropped it was when my hands were wet from the dishes
