Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, September 10 – Gadgets to make life easier are everywhere nowadays, but I think the difference in China is often that there are so many “cute” versions and they are usually low cost! I’m not sure how available these phone rings are in the USA and other places, but they are pretty big here right now. There are multiple names: phone ring, phone hook, finger grip, i-ring, and so many more! It is a gadget you stick on the back of your phone to serve as a safety grip for holding your phone, as well as a stand or kickstand for your phone to stand on its own. There are options ranging from plain solid colored ones, cute, pretty, well-known characters, and fancy gem studded ones! Basic ones cost 10rmb or about $1.50usd.
