Advent Competition Day 8 – PhoneHug

It is now day 8 of our advent giveaways and we have another fantastic giveaway for you for this festive season! We’ve been teaming up with some fantastic brands and we have another fab brand that we are working with today. But who are we collaborating with and what have we got to giveaway?
We’ve teamed up with PhoneHug – perfect for if you have ever dropped or damaged your phone. I know I’ve done it on a regular basis and could certainly do with something like this, haha!

Have you ever dropped, damaged or lost your phone?

Not anymore…

PhoneHug® a funky phone accessory, made from food grade silicone rubber, it stretches around the top and bottom of your phone securing it tightly.

The robust loop allows you to connect to a carabiner and lanyard, or just hang it up!

Fitting the vast majority of smartphones, PhoneHug® attached to a lanyard helps you to keep hold of your phone, so you can now wear your phone from your belt loop, your wrist, around the neck, or attached to a handle bar in the gym, leaving you to have your hands free and phone safe.

PhoneHug® helps to prevent the silent drop of your phone on the grass, or the hard crack as the screen goes on a hard surface. Attached to a bag handle, PhoneHug® makes it easier to locate your phone, rather than hearing voicemail kick in as you finally find your phone…

Simple and easy to use, fitted or removed in seconds, PhoneHug® is the only phone holder that has a strong and roust loop, grips tightly to the phone and is compatible with the vast majority of smartphones. Available in eight colours with a range of lanyards to choose from.

PhoneHug® is popular with those who love the gym, outdoors and adventure, people have said they don’t know how they managed before they had PhoneHug®

Rachel Ellis, wife of Para Cyclist Matt Ellis says;

“A large portion of Matts training is on a turbo trainer which uses an app to track his progress. He has previously dropped a phone onto his wheel during a sprint effort and the phone ended up in several pieces.

Due to his eye condition he needs the phone close to be able to read the data. Using his PhoneHug® he can securely attach the phone to the handle bars, read the data clearly and complete his efforts with confidence his phone is safe. 

The carabineer clip that comes with PhoneHug® is fantastic when we want to attach our phone to our bag whilst at the gym or at the track.

I particularly like being able to use the lanyard whilst at the side of the track, this means I can cheer Matt on whilst capturing photos and video footage.

It is great knowing that I’m not at risk of dropping my phone in the stands or onto a hard surface. 

Having 2 young children and three dogs means there are a lot of opportunities for phones to get knocked out of our hands.

We can now keep phones secure with us using the lanyards or even hang up out of reach of the little ones. “

Anna Hulme Personal trainer says;

“I am a Personal Trainer and the PhoneHug has become a vital part of my equipment when I am out with my clients, I now have my hands free while out running and it is so easy to get to my apps on my phone, to use my stopwatch etc. Cycling is easy and even when I am not working I always know where my phone is. A PhoneHug is a must for everyone.”

Feedback from customer;

“You know those things you never knew you needed till you’ve got one of them? This is one of those. Brilliant idea!”

PhoneHug® was established when two friends, Sam Fairbrother, a former commercial photographer and Geoff Barke, a concert runner, (now husband and wife) had a conversation around the kitchen table, voicing their concerns about phone theft and loss in their own industries, along with the many personal accidents that had occurred with their phones. They discovered 3 million of us here in the UK damage or brake our smartphones every year and have spent £5 million on repairing them in the last 2 years, in addition 500,000 of us here in the UK have our phones stolen every year!

Sam and Geoff know how stressful and time consuming a lost or damaged phone can be and believe PhoneHug® can reduce the unsavoury experience by helping people keep hold of their phones.

Giving back is a large part of the teams drive, to date PhoneHug® has helped a number of charities including; Trees for life, Balkan Underdogs; Help for Heroes, Future Dreams, South Manchester Rehome & Rescue, Girl Guide volunteers and local fundraising events. They look forward to helping more communities, charities and environmental projects.

PhoneHug® is environmentally aware and uses compostable cellophane on all lanyard products and aims to be using compostable packaging for all products by 2019.
