What Makes GoDonut Better than Other Phone Stands

What Makes GoDonut Better than Other Phone Stands

We get it. A donut isn’t the first thing you think of when you’re looking for something to safely prop up your phone. You may even have some sort of device stand that looks as unappealing as a public library bookend and is just as portable for stuffing in your bag. 

But we’re here to tell you why a simple, versatile, fun donut-shaped stand is a better solution.

More attractive

It’d be hard to find another phone stand on the market that comes in as many colors and patterns as the GoDonut. From its initial offering of 9 colors, we’ve expanded our collections to include a glazed finish as well as numerous stylish prints, like the Ultra and Skulls collections. And we’re always dreaming up more new and exciting looks.

The fact that it’s shaped like a donut, alone, makes it more fun to use than something that looks like it was designed to prop up your grandmother’s recipe book.

More versatile

Any amatuer engineer could design a stand to hold up their own phone. The trick is to design something that can fit most people’s phones. The GoDonut doesn’t just do that; it works with many standard-sized tablets, and e-readers too.

Do you use a case on your phone or tablet? Most people do. That’s because phones are more slippery than a wet bar of soap if you don’t snap a grippy case onto them. Your GoDonut can fit a phone or tablet case up to half an inch thick. That means you can keep your GoDonut for a long time as you cycle through devices year after year.

Landscape and portrait mode

Some stands hold your phone in portrait mode for when you’re scrolling through your favorite social media channels. Some hold them in landscape mode for when you’re snagging a few minutes to catch up on your favorite show. But both?

Unlike many stands, your GoDonut allows you to securely use your phone when it’s sitting horizontally or vertically. And it doesn’t take any fancy adjustment. Here are some helpful instructions:

  1. Grasp phone with your hand.
  2. Lift phone out of GoDonut.
  3. Rotate wrist 90 degrees (slowly, so as to prevent unnecessary strain).
  4. Place phone back in GoDonut.

Poof! It’s that easy. Now you’re the expert.

More viewing angles

Whether you’re sitting down, lying down, standing up, or doing jumping jacks, you’re not always going to want your phone and tablet to be sitting at the same angle. That’s why the GoDonut was designed to allow you to prop your device up in multiple angles.

Having multiple angles to choose from even gives you options for taking creative selfies.

More durable and portable

For a lifestyle that’s always on-the-go, it’s great to be able to throw things in your bag as you rush out the door without worrying that it’s going to be in pieces after being jostled on the bus, the airplane, your bicycle, or your motorcycle. That’s why we made GoDonuts incredibly durable.

The size and shape of your GoDonut isn’t cumbersome either, so it won’t take up a lot of space.

Has a 360 option

How many phone/tablet stands do you know of that let you place your device in them, then rotate them in 360 degrees with the simple flick of a finger? 

Our answer is: very few, but GoDonut is raising its hand high right now. All of our latest GoDonuts come with four holes in the base. This allows you to easily attach a GoDonut Swivel add-on — a swivel that allows your entire device stand to rotate. It also comes with a snap-on lock if you want to stop it from moving. 

Here are three ways to get your hands on a Swivel:

  1. Buy the Swivel separately if you’ve already purchased a GoDonut (Note: Make sure your GoDonut has four holes in the base)
  2. Buy the Swivel and GoDonut at the same time with the GoDonut 360 package
  3. Upgrade any GoDonut with an add-on Swivel when you purchase a GoDonut, including the Ultra and Skulls collections

Safer materials

Product safety is vital. We take pride in using only the highest-quality ingredients in our GoDonuts. Each GoDonut is made of a carefully crafted thermoplastic, which contains zero toxins and is BPA-free, UL Listed, and Prop 65 Compliant, conforming to top product safety standards. 

Just don’t try to eat it. It tastes awful.

Made in the U.S.A.

We believe in local manufacturing so we can provide the highest quality of materials and workmanship and can provide jobs in our local communities. That is why we are proud to say that every GoDonut is made in the U.S.A.

Hey, that rhymes!
