      For A Little Less Money - A Cheap Imitation.

      If you're looking for a cell phone tripod with bendy-flexible legs, a Bluetooth remote cell phone camera shutter button with an included battery and you're on a budget, then the Insignia Tripod & Bluetooth Shutter package is for you. Here, Best Buy (maker of Insignia products) has created a cheap alternative to the popular-but-pricey Joby GorillaPod Magnetic Tripod with Ivation Wireless Bluetooth Camera Shutter Remote Control package though the Insignia packge does not feature a magnetic base. The Insignia Tripod fails in only one category: It is not designed to hold your cell phone in portrait mode while you snap your selfies. It's designed for landscape photography only - but since the Insignia Tripod is a bendy-legged beast, you can twist it into a pretzel shape, which will successfully hold your phone upright for portrait-style photography. The overall Tripod package, once unboxed, screams no-frills, cheap but functional, all at once. Turn on the remote shutter via a switch on the side and a blinking light lets you know its ready to pair with your phone. The round, black remote shutter is very straightforward in its operation - it even features a short lanyard, and its range is reasonable - in general, a nice addition to the Tripod package. The Insignia Tripod is made of durable black plastic, foam rubber and metal. The collapsible, spring-loaded, plastic clamping mechanism which holds your cell phone should fit easily around most phone cases - my Galaxy S7 wearing an Otterbox Defender squeezed in nicely. Articulation is a problem all-around: Each leg has only approximately 15 degrees of movement outward, and the clamping mechanism only rotates upward / outward in one direction. However, the bendy legs of the tripod can be argued into numerous positions in order to address uneven surfaces. Rotating the clamp causes it to unscrew from its tripod base, but it can be done. The clamp can be dogged into firm position by a plastic lever on the side of the tripod. Before you consider not purchasing this tripod, keep in mind that it is indeed a cheap steal at just under $35.00. I wouldn't pay more than that for the quality of this product - kudos to Best Buy for giving consumers what they want at just about half the price. - Chipper F. Xavier, Esq.

      Serves it's purpose

      Bought this to stream a wedding for some out of town relatives who could not make it. Used the flexible legs to clamp it onto the front row and attached my iPhone 8 Plus. It fit perfectly with an Otterbox case but not much room for a bigger phone (if they make one bigger) or small tablet. Legs are flexible enough and rubber feet help it grip a little better. Hinge tightens enough to tilt it however you want. I can't tell if the head is meant to pan so it's best to get your shot when you set the legs. All in all, it's good for the price, gets the job done at a basic level.

      Does the job, but few drawbacks

      I bought this for the recent total solar eclipse. It did the job, but there were a few issues: The clamps that hold the cell phone can push buttons on the side causing all sorts of problems, they also can block access to the back of the phone display, and setting up with these issues can cause the tripod to be way off balance; however, the legs are flexible, so you can compensate to some degree. Another drawback is that the legs don't extend, what you see is what you get in height. I didn't mess with the blue tooth remote control, which is probably an unnecessary expense to the product, making the basic function a bit overpriced.

      Very Useful, 1 Small Negative...

      Very cool product, good price. I have an iPhone 7 running iOS 11.x. The Bluetooth shutter paired immediately no problem; it can be used to snap a picture, but also to start / stop video. The flexible yet sturdy legs are adjustable for use on uneven surfaces, and fold relatively flat to put into backpack, luggage, etc. It holds my iPhone tightly. Negative: I wish you could adjust it to portrait mode, but it can only stay in landscape. SO, I can finally go on vacation or a road trip with my kids, and be in the picture.

      This was part of a promo at BB when I picked up my phone. I wouldn't have bought it under other situation. After using I wouldn't. However, if I were posting a regular vlog this might be the tool for me. It's solid, it's stable, it's easy to use. It is just not easy to transport -- I need a travel bag to keep all of it together. I can't see me using it outside of the house. Son loves it for his vlog and it does a pretty good job to replace as a selfie stick for groups...

      My ONLY complaint is that it's all one piece. You can't take the cellphone holder and move it to a larger tripod. That said, it does the job. I've been using this tripod to help me record chore assignments for my children, demonstrating how to use things like the vacuum and Swiffer duster, in addition to techniques such as bending over and lowering their hands to pick things up off the floor. So far the videos have gotten poor reviews,, but those certainly aren't due to this tripod.

      Simple Tripod

      I purchased an open box item of this tripod. Everything was there despite being opened. It's easy to use and set up. It would be nice if it had more of an adjustable base to make it taller. I use it to help keep my phone steady while taking photos in my light tent. It would also be convenient if you could flip the phone into portrait mode instead of just landscape. I recommended this item if you do simple table top photographs.

      I use this to secure my iPhone 6S+ when taking photos or vids. The included Bluetooth shutter remote is an unexpected delight. I've used other desktop tripods with my current phone as well as smaller versions and it was not as stable. The legs on this tripod are both rigid and flexible. Today, I wrapped one leg around a mic stand and shot a few photos using the shutter remote and it went quite well.
