One of the most important things to think about before picking a phone wallet or wristlet is the size: Will it actually fit your device? Pictures can be deceiving, so check the product dimensions and the specs on your phone. Don’t forget to take your phone case into consideration! Solid ones can significantly increase the thickness of your phone, as can accessories like pop-up holders.
