I grudgingly upgraded from an iPhone 5s to a 6s recently; grudgingly because I like using my phone one-handed, and, even though I have large hands, the 6s is just a bit too big to use comfortably.
But then I heard about the https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/loopycases/loopy-the-worlds-first-case-to-stop-the-droptm. I don’t usually write about Kickstarters, but this intrigued me. The people behind this project sent me a prototype, and I have to say, this may become my daily iPhone case. (I’m currently using this case.)
The idea behind the LoopyCase is simple: it’s got a soft rubber loop on the back, through which you put a finger. You could use any of your first three fingers, but I’m using my middle finger. The loop holds onto your finger, and you can handle the phone without needing to grip the sides, controlling it easily with one hand.
The case itself looks solid, and will protect an iPhone very well. It’s got the necessary buttons and openings for ports, the speaker, and the camera.
It’s such a simple idea, and it solves one of the main problems of larger phones. I don’t have an iPhone 6s Plus, but I can imagine that it would make even that phablet easy to hold. (From the videos on the Kickstarter page, it looks like it’s still a bit of a reach to get to the top-left corner of the phone.)
The rubber is soft enough that you can fit the phone in your pocket; the loop just compresses, and the loop can also serve as a stand.
You can watch videos, for example, with the phone leaning against the loop.
You can reserve one through a Kickstarter, and it’s due to ship in December.
