I was on the hunt for a better phone grip at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. My current setup – a plain, clear MagSafe case with a generic Chewbacca ring holder – was functional but not exactly stylish. Thankfully, I stumbled upon HANDL New York, and they transformed my phone-holding experience.


I knew about MagSafe but hadn’t used it much. We chose a new case, and Mrs. Ripper kindly modeled the magHANDL once it was attached. I was worried about messing up the installation, but it was a breeze! The magHANDL held securely while I walked around and even during intense rounds of Call of Duty: Mobile.

The stretchy design also doubles as a convenient stand for watching videos. HANDL New York offers a wide variety of styles and colors, from faux crocodile to famous artwork. This system is perfect for anyone who likes to switch up their phone’s look and benefit from different grip options.


If you don’t use MagSafe or want a no-frills grip solution, the HANDLstick is a fantastic option. It’s incredibly secure – I could easily fit three or four fingers through the handle. Just find the ideal placement for the grip and the stand, which is sturdy and well-designed. I’m definitely planning on using the HANDLstick on my next cross-country flight so my phone sits comfortably on the tray table.

The Verdict

HANDL New York offers excellent solutions for improving your phone grip. The best choice depends on your needs and preferences. Either way, they prove that phone handles can be both functional and fashionable.
