    As you might've guessed, we're big on saving pocket space here at Pocketnow ... and we sometimes miss the days when phone holsters were a "thing." I talked about this in a short editorial almost exactly one year ago, where I made a case for the return of the phone pouch: The added utility of freeing up a pocket is almost magical – especially in the summertime when fabric is at a premium. Also, phones don’t clang around on a belt like they do in a pocket, keeping your stride steady and your center of gravity … centered. You’re much more likely to feel vibration alerts when the ...

    Apparently I'm a bit of an anomaly when it comes to carrying a smartphone. During my Windows Mobile (and Pocket PC) days, I carried my phone around in a holster. Don't judge me!

    It ain't easy being Captain2Phones. Especially in the summer, pocket space is minimal, and sacrificing two of them for mobile devices leads to a tough key-and-wallet-juggling act ... and no small amount of discomfort if a phone decides to run hot. Even if you're not dual-wielding mobiles like some modern-day gunslinger, you're still probably devoting an entire pants pocket to your smartphone on account of its constantly ballooning proportions. Despite all our advancements, it's pretty inconvenient to carry your smartphone in your pocket now. (See what I did there?) It's times like these I ...
