Best Phone Finger Rings iMore 2021
Phone rings are a fun way to personalize your smartphone while also giving you better control as you use it. The best phone rings let you reach more of your screen while reducing finger and hand strain. They also give you a firmer grip on your phone compared to pop-out phone grips. Phone rings double as a kickstand to make it easier to watch videos or video chat. Choose a ring that matches the color of your cellphone, or that is a complementary color like a gold ring on a black case. The possibilities are endless. FitFort is our top pick because it works with both smooth and textured phone cases, works with hands-free mounts, and has a durable and stable design.
- Best Overall: FitFort Finger Kickstand
- Runner Up: Spigen Style Ring
- Best Value: Lamicall Cell Phone Holder
- Ring with Bling: Lenoup Glitter Bling Bling
- Universal: Aduro 3-in-1
- Large Ring: Humixx Universal Phone Ring
Best Overall: FitFort Finger Kickstand
The FitFort Finger Kickstand is the only phone ring we reviewed that works with textured phone cases. The strong 3M VBH tape is so strong it can hold up to 11 pounds. This strength helps the kickstand feature of this ring remain stable while it holds your phone in place on a table or other flat surface, and makes it an excellent choice to use for several models of tablets, too.
The base is made from several layers of zinc alloy and stainless steel. This allows the ring part to rotate around 360 degrees and angle the ring, so it feels comfortable when you're gripping the phone. It also works with magnetic holders, such as hands-free car stands. The final, four-coat layer finish is scratch resistant.
This phone ring can interfere with wireless charging. The best solution is to attach the grip a little lower or higher than the direct center of the phone.
- Attaches to textured cases
- Works with tablets
- 360-degree rotation
- 180-degree angle flip
- Compatible with magnetic holders
- Interferes with wireless charging
- Adhesive is not reusable
Runner Up: Spigen Style Ring
The Spigen Style Ring is a comfortable handgrip that attaches well to smooth phone cases. The D-shaped ring gives it a bit of added stability when using the kickstand feature, and it can be angled or rotated to fit your needs. The adhesive that attaches the ring to your cell phone can be reused by simply wetting the adhesive before reapplying the ring to another phone.
This ring isn't bulky, so it won't bulge or snag when you slip your phone into your pocket. It comes in seven colors to match most smartphone colors. It includes a dash hook, so you can mount your phone to your car's dashboard for a hands-free experience while driving. This is important since the base of this cellphone ring doesn't attach to magnetic car mounts.
- D-shaped ring
- Rotating grip
- Reusable adhesive
- Includes car dash hook mount
- Not bulky
- Doesn't stick to textured phone cases
- Not compatible with magnetic car holders
- Interrupts wireless charging
Best Value: Lamicall Cell Phone Holder
The Lamicall Cell Phone Holder is a cheap ring, but only in price. The design of this phone ring is still good quality with a metal base that attaches to car phone mounts and an adjustable ring that is strong enough to hold your phone steady on a desk or tabletop in portrait or landscape positions.
This phone ring works best with smaller devices that are between 4 and 8 inches. The ring itself works as a cable winder, so you can keep earbuds and chargers handy without getting in the way. You can choose from five different colors that match most cellphone colors, including black, silver, and rose gold.
- Adjustable stand
- Works for portrait and landscape modes
- Ring doubles as a cable winder
- Five colors
- Not recommended for larger devices
- Won't stick to textured cases
Ring with Bling: Lenoup Glitter Bling Bling
This diamond ring grip from Lenoup is a fun way to dress up your phone while also being practical and useful. This ring is entirely outlined in sparkly crystals with a single diamond-like crystal at the top by the hinge and a center crystal in the center. The ring itself comes in four colors; black, gold, silver, and rose gold. The ring kicks out to create a kickstand if you'd like to set your phone on a table and watch it hands-free. This Lenoup phone ring rotates 360 degrees so you can hold your phone comfortably both in portrait and landscape positions.
You can't use this phone ring on leather or textured cellphone cases. But on smooth surfaces, the Lenoup Glitter ring sticks tight. The adhesive isn't reusable, so be careful where you place this ring.
- Fun design
- Kickstand for hands-free use
- 360-degree rotation
- Not for textured or leather cases
- Adhesive is not reusable
Universal: Aduro 3-in-1
This universal phone ring is designed with a double layer, rubberized ring that grips your car's air vent to create a hands-free mount. It also kicks out to stand your phone up while you watch videos or take a photo. Also, when you slip it on your finger, the plastic ring gives you an excellent grip to avoid accidentally dropping your cellphone.
Because this ring is thicker than most metal phone rings, it tends to be a little bulkier. You can expect a slight bulge when in your pocket. The plastic adhesive is powerful but can be reused if you want to change the ring from one device to another. All that is required is to wet the adhesive before reattaching it.
- Rubberized grip ring
- Doubles as car mount
- Doesn't work with magnetic mounts
- A bit bulky
Large Ring: Humixx Universal Phone Ring
The ring of this smartphone kickstand has a larger diameter compared to others, so it is more comfortable to use if your fingers are a little bigger. The ring doesn't have jagged edges, so it is also comfortable while you hold and use your phone. It uses a sturdy 3M adhesive to attach to your smooth phone or phone case.
The ring doubles as a kickstand, and its base is compatible with magnetic phone holders. You can choose between three different colors, so your ring complements your phone.
Because it is a little bigger, this phone ring works well with tablets. However, it also tends to block wireless charging. For some Qi-enabled devices, you can position the phone ring a little higher or lower to use a wireless charger.
- Larger ring to fit bigger fingers comfortably
- Compatible with magnetic phone holders
- Strong enough to use with tablets
- Blocks wireless charging
- Adhesive isn't reusable
The best phone rings work with every kind of phone and case, double as a kickstand so you can set your phone on a table or desk, and work with hands-free mounts, especially magnetic car dash holders. To be honest, the Spigen phone ring is more popular, but it doesn't work with textured phone cases, which is why the FitFort Finger Kickstand gets our top spot.
FitFort has a comfortable, durable design and a strong adhesive that works with any type of phone case. Made from scratch-resistant material, it works with hands-free car mounts, including magnetic ones, and kicks out so you can set your phone on a flat surface to watch movies or take pictures more easily. FitFort rings are also a few dollars cheaper than other phone rings making them a bit more budget-friendly.
