Video: Mobile Phone Chains 2020: The Best Mobile Phone Cases To Wear For IPhone And Samsung Galaxy

A large selection of cell phone chains for all common smartphone models can be found on Amazon (e.g. from Jalouza). Disadvantage there: Many small and exclusive labels are not represented there - in case of doubt, you have to go to the manufacturer's official online shop.
Basically important when buying a cell phone chain: Make sure you have the right cell phone model. Of course, this is not about the cord, but about the attached case into which the smartphone is inserted. You can usually find out which model of cell phone a cell phone chain (or case) is compatible with from the product description (eg "For iPhone 11").
Closed pouches or mobile phone pouches with a neck strap are somewhat more flexible. Different models fit in here - however, the display is not as quickly accessible as with a simple case.
The price range for cell phone chains is quite similar to fashion accessories: cheap cell phone chains can be found for less than 10 euros, but a model from a luxury brand can also cost well over 100 euros.
The original from Berlin: mobile phone chain from Xouxou
It all started: Xouxou cell phone chains are “the original” that brought the look to the streets. The Berlin-based brand now offers numerous model variants with covers for different smartphones. The price of the Xouxou cell phone chains is around 25 euros in the middle.

- Xouxou mobile phone chain for iPhone XR
- Xouxou mobile phone chain for iPhone X / Xs

Minimalist mobile phone chain by Jalouza for 15 euros

This minimalist model by Jalouza for the iPhone 11 is very simple in design and can therefore be combined with almost any style. The slightly shiny and dirt-repellent material of the silver-colored cord is "polypropylene multifilament" - which is also used to make normal ropes. Like almost every cell phone chain, this model is also available in variants for other smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy A5 or Galaxy S9.
The mobile phone chains of the Zhinkarts brand are also popular on Amazon. Our recommendation is this silver-colored and simple model:

Now from € 29.75 at Amazon price can now be higher. Price from 2020-27-07 1:32 a.m. mobile phone chain for iPhone XR with card slot at Amazon
If you like it robust, you should take a look at the mobile phone chains of the UrbanXBody series from Jalouza in Berlin. Instead of a filigree cord, an outdoor-inspired and length-adjustable band is used. The look is reminiscent of the equipment of professional photographers who wear their SLR cameras around their bodies with similar-looking straps. The integrated “smartphone wallet” is practical for the UrbanXBody. It offers space for at least 2 cards (e.g. ID card, credit card) and some cash.
Cell phone chain made of leather

In addition, a delivery time of a few days can be expected. The suitable iPhone model is selected on Amazon under the "Size" option.
There are alternatives for the Samsung Galaxy S8, such as the Oneflow shoulder strap for around 22 euros:

Cheap mobile phone chain for 5 euros (sale, July 2020)
The iPhone-X mobile phone chain from Snipes, which is on sale for 5 euros, is particularly cheap. However, the logo of the fashion retailer is then clearly and clearly printed on it.
Mobile phone chains: You have to know these brands
The most important brands for mobile phone chains come from the fashion sector and are largely unknown in the technology scene. Instead of the usual manufacturers of smartphone accessories, names like Lapàporter, Nuri, StudioNooks, Jalouza *, IPhoria, BAM France, Liebeskind Berlin or Ancord can be found.
Yara Jentzsch with her label Xouxou Berlin is considered the inventor of the mobile phone chain. As the magazine Gründerszene reports, one day the young mother got a transparent cell phone cover, stuck two eyelets through the case and pulled a long ribbon through it. The mobile phone chain was ready to be put on! In the meantime, production has long been professionalized, after all, the successful product from the German capital is in demand all over the world.
Mobile phone chains 2020: that's what the fashion expert says about practical smartphone accessories
First a hipster accessory, then mainstream and now out? The rapid rise of the mobile phone chain was laughed at from the start and accompanied by criticism. They are classified in opinion articles as "signs of cell phone addiction" (Stern, 2019) and make us "look a bit stupid" (Zeit, 2019). You can see it that way - but luckily there is also a completely different perspective.
We spoke to fashion expert Susanne Faller from Desired. The fashionista already observed the trend in cell phones when it started, when it started from Berlin and then appeared on Instagram among the first influencers worldwide. Your assessment:
Jalouza Link Chain Gold for Apple iPhone 11
Now from € 28.95 at Amazon price can now be higher. Price from 27.07.2020 00:24 a.m.

Now from € 23.90 at Amazon price can now be higher. Price from 2020-27-07 1:22 a.m.
Dangling a mobile phone chain: how to wear it properly
The “crossbody” style is widespread, ie diagonally across the chest like a shoulder bag. Alternatively, just hang around your neck, like a breast bag. With both variants, you should note that most cell phone chains come with a smartphone case that does not cover the display itself. When moving quickly or in a frenzy, it is better to hold the cell phone by hand to avoid bumps and scratches directly on the screen.

When choosing the right cell phone chain, a fundamental question: Which clothes should be worn underneath and does it match in color? Because in online shops the cords are mostly seen against a white background, but in practice they have to match the patterned dress or sweater.
Mobile phone chains for men
Can men wear cell phone chains? Yes, why not! If you look around Berlin and Hamburg, you can confirm that cell phone chains are worn by everyone - regardless of gender, age or other aspects.
In the end, one thing counts in common: Today we all carry a phablet smartphone with us that hardly fits in the pocket of tight jeans. In the past, cell phones were just small and only used to make calls, now they have grown to the size of a chocolate bar and we need them as a map, music player or video camera (a camcorder is also used).
Discreet mobile phone chain for iPhone 7/8 at Amazon
