Whether you pay for your smartphone in full up front or over time in smaller installments, it’s a major investment. High-end smartphones can even cost even more than a desktop computer or a laptop these days. For example, Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone 6s Plus costs over $1,000 after taxes, and you can tack on another $129 if you want to protect your purchase with an AppleCare+ plan covering accidental damage. Of course, even with Apple’s extra coverage, you’ll still need to pay another $99 if you crack your screen and want it replaced.

Accidents are often unavoidable and phones can get damaged in a number of different ways, but are you really doing enough to protect this huge investment? It’s time you checked out the Spigen Style Ring, a small smartphone accessory that works with any phone and protects against drops better than any case ever will.

Smartphone case makers like Spigen have made great strides in recent years. These new cases are made out of advanced materials with designs that are the result of hundreds of hours of research and development. They’re thinner than ever and sturdier than ever, and they come in styles that are sleeker than ever.

But they don’t prevent drops.

If you have a high-quality case on your iPhone, Samsung Galaxy phone, or any other smartphone you might be carrying, there’s a very good chance it will survive an accidental drop and emerge completely unscathed. But if your phone lands in a certain way or if it’s involved in a really bad drop and falls a great distance, it can be damaged even if it’s in a protective case.

The simple truth is that there is only one way to ensure that your phone doesn’t break from an accidental drop: Don’t drop it.

It sounds simple enough, but we all know that keeping a good grip on your phone can be difficult at times. Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are made of very slick aluminum, and Samsung’s latest Galaxy S phones have glass and metal housings that are just as difficult to grip. That’s why Spigen created the Style Ring, a small accessory that is as simple as it is brilliant.

The Spigen Style Ring consists of three parts. There’s a plastic piece that attaches to the back of your smartphone or to any smartphone case as long as it has a somewhat flat back, and then there’s a metal ring that extends from the mount. A separate hook mount is also included, but we’ll come back to that.

Using the Spigen Style Ring, it becomes almost impossible to drop your smartphone. Simply slip your finger through the ring and you instantly have the most secure possible grip on your phone. The ring also rotates to ensure that it’s comfortable with any grip angle. Even if the handset somehow slips from your other fingers, the ring will catch on your pointer and your phone will never touch the ground.

Spigen’s Style Ring is about much more than just grip. The accessory’s smart design allows it to also serve as a stand when you’re not holding the phone in your hand. Place the phone on its side, rotate the ring downward, and you’ve got a perfect kickstand for watching videos or while using video chat services like Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts.

Now, remember that hook mount we mentioned earlier? Well there’s another smart aspect to the Style Ring’s design that completely removes the need for you to ever use another car mount again.

Spigen’s hook mount is a tiny piece of plastic with an adhesive back that sticks to the dashboard of any car; and don’t worry, the adhesive is a 3M gel pad so it won’t leave any residue or ruin your dash. Once the hook mount is secured to your dash, you can rotate the Style Ring when you get into your car and place it over the mount. Your phone will now be held securely in place while you drive.

It’s a great hands-free solution that will let you navigate safely with your smartphone while you’re on the road.

It’s pretty easy to see why the Spigen Style Ring is the #1 new release in Amazon’s “Cell Phone Car Cradles & Mounts” category. The Style Ring is simple and affordable, and it solves multiple problems with a single accessory. No more drops, no more awkward viewing angles while you’re watching videos, and no more struggling to get your phone in and out of complex car mounts.

Of course, we’ve saved the best for last.

Spigen’s Style Ring has a full retail price of $24.99 and it typically sells for between $12.99 and $19.99 on Amazon.
