    The worst product I've ever purchased

    For $50 you really wouldn't expect something sold at BestBuy to be so poorly made. The grip as no means to tighten or hold the phone in place, no matter which way I tried it my phone slips out (and it's in the recommended size range printed on the box). On my third try to to secure my phone, my phone fell out an the screen CRACKED! To boot when I tried to use the stick that is used for panning and swiveling the head of the tripod, the piece of metal snapped off like I was the Hulk! I didn't even try to force it, I gently touched the piece to turn the device (there wasn't even push back or sticking), I barely moved it half a cm before it snapped and went flying across my office.

    Very nice tripod for a phone. Phone easily mounts to the tripod and t is cool that the phone can be positioned vertically or horizontally. It also has a nice integrated handle for rotating/adjusting where the camera/phone is aiming. Very sturdy. Only downside is you need a relatively thin case (or no case) for a larger phone like my iPhone 7 Plus. Aside from that this things is perfect for my needs!

    To be fair, this is my first tripod purchase. I selected this unit because there was an open box sale in Store. It works pretty well. I don't really use the handle to pan shots. I just use the tripod to shoot stationary video training my dog. For this, it has been fine.

    Bought this for my daughter to use her phone camera to video get gymnastics on the trampoline. She uses it all the time and it works great. Holds her phone exactly where she puts it. Totally recommend this for making videos with your phone.

    I purchased this item for my phone since i use it as a camera for my workouts and other documentations. I really like it. Do your research if you want to purchase a quality tripod, however this is a good one.

    This is a great idea but with bad implemention. It's difficult at times to straighten the legs. I did like the phone mount. After returning this I purchased the phone mount individually.

    It is not fluid at all, and it is to expensive, but, I don't know anything better. It requires to much adjustments. This is a great product to hold your phone.

    Very easy to use. We take video of baseball games and we hook it in a fence and it holds the phone perfect and the video comes out good,

    Got this instead of selfie stick for pictures while hiking- combined with a remote- works perfectly. Attach to tree limbs or stack on awkward rocks for the awesome shots!

    I'm starting a tripod collection of Joby tripods. This one holds my phone with a tight grip and I am able to move it around if I need to. Very convenient.

    Bought this as a gift for my nephew. He loves that is flexible and you can put it anywhere, as it can rotate 360 degrees w/o moving the tripod!
