Our phones are not just phones anymore, powered as they are with smart technology and ever-increasing capabilities. They give us endless entertainment options ranging from music, gaming to movies and television, and make so many everyday products in our lives sync and streamline, which ultimately helps to optimize your life.
So, before you scratch your head and wonder why you might want a shower phone holder, pause to think about it a little more. Why not have access to your music, entertainment, guided meditation and apps while showering? Shower phone holders give you access to your little magic computer regardless of the steam and water flow around you (and they’re not expensive!). In fact, to create an ultimate experience you can even use some waterproof swimming headphones or waterproof bluetooth speakers in that shower as well!
Here’s what you need to know about the thing you didn’t know you needed.
What’s a Shower Phone Holder?
Specs vary, but shower phone holders do the following:
- Mount to the wall of your shower. Most use adhesive wall hooks although some models use a suction technology. Adhesives must be installed onto fully dry surfaces and left to set for a number of hours to maximize adhesion.
- Protect your smartphone from water splashes. However, note that shower phone holders should not be fully submerged in water.
- Allow you to access your touch screen without damage or fogging. Check instructions; most suggest removing your smartphone from your every protection case before adding to the shower phone holder.
Why Do You Need a Shower Phone Holder?
Having a phone holder in your shower lets you:
- Listen to music/podcasts, watch videos, movies, or television.
- Read and respond to urgent messages.
LC-dolida Shower Phone Holder
What you get: You’ll get a Shower Phone holder that is large enough to accommodate larger iPhone models like the 12 Pro Max. You’ll also get three adhesive wall hooks, which can be used on marble, board, glass, ceramic tile as well as stainless steel.
Why we love it: We love that reviewers say it’s wider to accommodate large phones, responds well to fog and is more secure (from accidental falls) than many similar products.
Promising review: “The holder is a good size for fitting most kinds of phones (mine is an iPhone XR with a case from Redbubble in their “tough case” style, and it fits in this holder without removing the case). One thing I will note is that the screen is pretty unresponsive when your fingers are wet, but I feel like this is just going to be the case with every shower phone holder out there. So it would work best for watching movies that you just leave on during your whole shower instead of Youtube videos where you have to touch the screen to skip ads and select new videos to watch.” – Sarah, Amazon customer

URROY 360º Rotation Shower Phone Case
What you Get: You’ll get a 100% waterproof case that allows you to rotate your phone 360 degrees. This will adhere to glass, marble, stainless steel, wood or ceramic walls. Included are three adhesive holders. It is suggested to take your phone out of its case before you put it into the shower phone case, which is especially key if you have a large, bulky phone protector.
Why we love it: We love that customers say it keeps their phones well insulated and dry. Reviewers mention to let the adhesive set for 24 hours before you use the shower to maximize the strength of the mounting bond.
Promising Review: “I love that there are three mounts, as I wanted one in the shower and one on our bathroom mirror, and I love that it rotates between horizontal and vertical orientations with ease! The pads stick very well and all seems very secure and dry inside. I cannot imagine a better version of this product, but I definitely have had experience with worse. This is what you are looking for.” – L2K, Amazon customer

KUNSLUCK Shower Phone Holder Waterproof
What you Get: This Shower Phone Holder is available in three colors: black, white or light pink. It comes with three adhesive panels. The case can hold up to 4.5 pounds.
Why we love it: We love the 480 degree rotation, which means not only can you rotate 360 degrees you can also tilt the phone up or down, which is helpful to get the most optimal viewing angle – especially if you are sharing this with other members of your household who are different heights.
Promising Review: “This product is really useful if you like to listen to music in the shower. Highly recommend it.” – El Caballo, Amazon customer
Mistriddle Waterproof Shower Phone Holder
What you Get: You’ll get the shower phone holder and three adhesive wall hooks, which use suction force to adhere to your dry shower wall.
Why we love it: We love the versatility of multiple functions that this holder offers. You can use it on your wall mount, or you can set it on the table with a built-in kickstand.
Promising Review: “It works really well, keeps my phone dry. It doesn’t muffle my music. The only thing that sucks for me is that if my phone turns off I have to open it to push the button and turn it back on. But it’s still worth the money even with that. Very happy with it.” – Hollie Young, Amazon customer
Spread Pixie Dust Shower Phone Holder
What you Get: You will get a Shower Phone Holder that is compatible with phones up to 6.8 inches, as well as adhesive for mounting to your wall.
Why we love it: We love that reviews mention its high sensitivity touch screen, which is useful if you need to adjust while in the shower.
Promising Review: “The adhesion is great to my shower wall (although I will say my shower is flat and smooth so depending on the texture of the wall it might be different but the adhesion is VERY strong), and the water proofing is fine. I saw in a couple reviews people almost completely submerged the case in water to test it and to that I say, what were you expecting? The case is built to withstand shower water, aka splashes/sprinkle of water against it, not full submersion.” – Sharon Rosenberger-Richard, Amazon customer

MoKo Shower Phone Holder
What you Get: You’ll get a Shower Phone Holder with an adhesive mount that sticks on glass, tile or marble.
Why we love it: We love the 60 degree fixed opening angle which makes it easy to put in and take out your phone without worrying it will slip and fall onto the shower floor.
Promising Review: “It works great in the shower and no water gets in the inside! I love that it gave an extra sticky pad too if we need to move it or replace.” – Jacqueline Devaney, Amazon customer
Price: $11.99 at Amazon.com
TOBRE Shower Phone Holder
What you Get: You’ll get a Shower Phone Holder and three adhesive holders, which will adhere to smooth non-porous surfaces.
Why we love it: With extra adhesive and an option to kickstand it out on your counter, this is a good choice for using your phone in wet areas.
Promising Review: “Product is very easy to hook up and comes with three adhesive stickers to put this in different spots. It does swivel to turn just had to pull the arm extension out the turn. No fog, screen worked great and kept phone safe. My only issue is it does lower the volume of the music [b/c it’s enclosed] but it’s still good, just a personal issue.” – Lily, Amazon customer

Oceavity Shower Phone Holder
What you Get: You’ll get a Shower Phone Holder with three adhesive wall hooks. While it’s not to be used under water, it offers a double-layer waterproof structure.
Why we love it: We love that they use an upgraded nano glue to help increase adhesion. You also get five colors to choose from which is fun.
Promising Review: “Saw this on TikTok and wanted to try it out. It holds my phone very well. No water got into the case, the screen didn’t get foggy, the touch screen was very easy to touch and the 360 angle was easy to turn. Just make sure you close the case all the way and make sure it’s tight to close so the capsule won’t open and the phone won’t fall out. Definitely recommend you place the case under the shower so not too much water gets on the case if you want to be safe with your phone.”
