I believe that many people have tried using a phone ring holder before, but some people may find it not as good as it advertised. For example, many people with small hands still find it difficult to take a good selfie by using it to hold their phone. When they cross the ring with their finger, their thumb is not long enough to reach the photo button. Just like the picture shown below.
If that is you, don’t rush to throw away your phone ring holder. The problem might not be the little device but where you put it on your phone. To choose the right place to put in on your phone you should consider the following factors:
- ● Size of your mobile phone
- ● Size of your hands
- ● Camera position
- ● Fingerprint lock position
- ● User habit
Reviews of Several Common Locations
In the Middle
Most people choose to attach their phone ring holder in the middle of their phone. It’s the most common place to stick a ring holder as it looks good. Also, the performance of being a kickstand on the table is pretty good. The only drawback is that thoes who have small hands find it difficult to operate their phone with their finger stuck in the ring holder.
The ring holder doesn’t look as balanced as it does right in the middle when placed in the mid-lower position on your phone, but it’s surprisingly good to use. It is great for one-hand operation or being a kickstand. Phone ring holders at this position offer great performance because the action area is centered in the lower half of the screen. Even for thoes who have small hands it’s is easy to reach the photo button to take a selfie.
Left Lower Position
Many people with small hands choose this location to place their phone ring holder because it is easy for them to operate the phone this way. For that reason, it is truly a good choice. But when you need to use your phone with your left hand, it would be inconvenient. Considering this, mid-lower position would be a better choice.
Mid Upper Position
Actually, I don’t know why some people like this location, but it was recommended, so I included it in. In my opinion, it’s neither good-looking nor practical. When your finger crosses the ring, it blocks the back camera while the other fingers, especially the thumb are too far from the home button. Also, it’s difficult to operate even for big hands.
No matter what location I recommended, you may have your own opinion. Ultimately, it’s more important to find the location that works best for you. You can try these all or you can follow several steps to find the best location to put your ring holder.
How to Find a Location That Suits You the Most
Don’t peel off the sticker on the ring holder and put the ring on the middle finger of your dominant hand.
Hold the mobile phone with your dominant hand, find the most comfortable position and mark it with a pen that can be erased. If you don’t want to cover the logo or fingerprint lock, just avoid them.
Peel off the sticker and stick the ring holder to the phone according to the mark. Finally, erase the mark on the phone.
Go through these three steps, and you will find the best location to stick your phone ring holder.
Why You Should Use a Phone Ring Holder
There are many advantages to using a ring phone holder. For example:
Ease of Use
Ring holders make it easy for you to use your phone with one hand. You can easily take selfies, send texts, and browse your social media all while operating your phone with one hand.
Ring holders are also great at keeping your phone safe from falling out of your hands. You can also attach the ring to your pocket or belt to make sure it doesn’t fall out.
Phone ring holders can also be used as kickstands when you want to watch your favorite show or movie. Easily place your phone on any flat surface and enjoy viewing.
Phone ring holders add to the overall style of your phone. You can choose from a number of designs that go with the color scheme of your phone or phone cover.
What Are Different Types of Phone Ring Holders
There are two main types of phone holders found in the market.
Metallic phone ring holders are made of some kind of metal. Aluminum and steel are the common metal types used to make these holders. Our Finger Ring Stand is made of zinc alloy and stainless steel making it both sturdy and polished. Metallic ring holders are stronger and more durable. However, they can interfere with wireless charging.
Some ring holders are made of plastic. These are lightweight and frail. Prone to breakage they do not last long. However, they do not interfere with wireless charging. That is the reason why our Finger Ring Holder RS01 has a good quality plastic body that houses a removable metal part. The metal part makes the ring holder strong and durable and when you remove it you can easily charge your phone wirelessly.

Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Phone Ring Holder
Here are some factors you should consider before choosing the right ring phone holder.
Choose a ring holder with strong construction. Always check what the ring holders are made of and if they have any sharp edges. Good quality ring holders are usually made of metal and have a stainless steel surface so they are smooth and don’t damage your phone.
The size of the ring holder is really important. If it is too big your finger will keep sliding out and it may cover the camera of your phone. Too small and your finger won’t fit and you won’t get the right grip. Choose a ring holder that is just right for the size of your hands and your phone.
If you’re buying a ring phone holder that opens and closes, make sure this operation is smooth. Also, check to make sure the ring is rotatable to make one-handed operation easier and more convenient. You should be able to use the ring holder as a kickstand in both landscape and portrait modes. If the ring holder is magnetic it should be compatible with magnetic car mounts so you can easily mount your phone while driving.
Quality of Adhesive
Strong adhesives are needed to connect the ring holder to your phone. A low-quality adhesive will make the ring holder fall off maybe even damaging your phone. We use only the highest quality adhesives. This means once you stick the ring holder in place, it doesn’t budge.
Good quality phone ring holders are not very cheap. You may find many cheap ring holders but they might not be durable and may even damage your phone. Invest in a good quality holder so your phone is safe.
How to Ensure Your Phone Ring Holder Remains Attached to Your Phone?
Here are some ways to make sure your ring holder remains attached to your phone:
- ● Avoid getting your phone wet. Water or any other liquid can weaken the stickiness of the adhesive, making the ring holder fall off.
- ● Avoid moisture for the same reason. Moisture weakens the sticky bong between the ring holder and the phone.
- ●Don’t use the ring to suspend phone from anything other than your finger. For example, don’t attach your phone to your handbag through the ring holder.
- ● Don’t pull too hard on the ring. Take care while opening and closing the ring to not apply too much pressure as that might break the ring.
- ● Make sure to close the ring when not using the holder. This way the ring won’t break because of some unwanted impact with a hard surface.
- ● Stick the holder properly and don’t try to change its position. Once the adhesive is attached, changing the holder’s position can damage both the ring holder and your phone.
