One-hand use of our cellphone is like a distance memory, attributed by the increasing size of our device. Ok, maybe the devices’ size aren’t going any bigger, but they are pretty big now that only a handful gets to enjoy one-handed use. Barely, actually. However, a UK startup think they may have the solution and it is by the way of a case which they called Bekla. And it is not just any case. It does serve to protect your device from knocks and bumps, but it has another innovation up its sleeve: a pair of rubber compound embedded on the back of the case, which according to its inventors, enable “you to hold the smartphone single-handedly and reach all corners of the screen with just your thumb.” With the dual grip feature, it can accommodate various hand sizes, well, mostly, since a kid’s hands would have no way have that kind of reach.

I am not sure how it is going to work out. I mean, does just having two rubber strips, albeit raised quite substantially, make a world of difference in grip? We are not going to lie; we are skeptical. We think it still comes down to the size of the individual’s hands. Ok, maybe it does help by providing additional grip, but there’s no guarantee. Anywho, as a boon, the rubber strips are non-slip too, thus allowing your device to sit securely on pretty much any surfaces and not slips like most cases. Furthermore, care have been taken to ensure the opening for the connector and headphone jack are larger to accommodate third party accessories.

Finally, raised edge on the front ensure the display remains shielded when the phone is facing down. Basically, apart from the rubber strips, what the case has to offer is what you have come to expect from a decent protective case and so, we are not sure if the whole one-handed proposition is going to work the magic among iPhone users. If you are enticed, you can show your support by backing Bekla One-hand iPhone Case’s Kickstarter campaign. For £18-20 (about US$26-29), depending on how soon you pledge, you can get secure yourself an unit, but that’s only if the campaign meets its set funding goal of 15,000 English pounds. To be honest, the prospect at this point isn’t exceedingly bright, but we sure wish the project the best.
