3 Super Straps for Phones

Every mobile photographer or filmmaker knows that nervous feeling of holding your phone over the edge of a bridge or cliff. You think to yourself, if you drop it, you’ll never be able to get it back! 

Whether you shoot with your phone in precarious situations, or just have a habit of dropping your phone, give yourself the gift of security by investing in a strap for your smartphone. Your smartphone is an essential and expensive device, so you should do your best to protect it.

Smartphone Straps


For awhile I laughed at the idea of needing a strap for my smartphone when shooting. I thought, “I’m not clumsy and I definitely respect how expensive this device is,” until the moment that my phone was tumbling towards the concrete. In that moment I thought, “damn, straps for phones really are a worthwhile investment.”

Don’t be like me, get a smartphone strap for that extra peace of mind.

Don’t Forget the Case

Depending on the type of smartphone you have, you may need to invest in a new case in order to use a wrist strap. There was a time when most phones had a hole in the corner to be used with a strap, but not many modern smartphones have this feature now.

If you want to use a strap and your phone doesn’t allow you to attach the strap directly to it, you’ll need to purchase a new case. 

The Moment Case for the iPhone, Galaxy, OnePlus or Pixel is a great option. Not only do these cases let you attach a wrist strap, but they work with Moment lenses. Plus, they’re sleek, stylish, and will protect your phone from most bumps and short drops.

If you’re happy with the case you have, but want more security, check out the third strap on this list. It’s universally adaptable and doesn’t require any specific type of phone or case. This strap will also work for those bold mobile creators who don’t use any protective case at all.
