Talking on a Smartphone is Cumbersome: Here’s a Fix (Video)

As smartphone screen sizes continue to increase, talking on the phone becomes more cumbersome. As an example, we found the HTC One V to be a particularly good phone because of its petite size (it has a smallish 3.7″ display). So a lot of people use speakerphone, which is handy, but not discreet. Others turn to Bluetooth headsets, which makes for yet another thing to keep charged. As another option, we show you the POP Phone, which is a simple phone accessory that looks and feels just like a classic phone. It’s extremely comfortable to hold to your face, and it works with pretty much every smartphone (and tablet) that has a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can even use the POP Phone for Skype and other chatting apps. You can snag one for $17-25 over at Amazon in a wide variety of colors.
