    This product seems well built and is solidly constructed, not just a piece of plastic junk. It holds my iPhone 7 securely and the ball head allows easy positioning of the phone. The one thing I would suggest to make this the perfect mount is for the legs to be detachable and the ball head be mountable on a full tripod via the 1/4 in standard mounting.

    I bought this for my wife to use while student teaching. It holds her iPhone steady so it can record her lessons. I think it more stable on normal, flat surfaces than the articulated Joby stands. It also collapses don nicely to drop into backpacks. The only downside is that you can’t wrap the legs around tree branches like its cousins.

    For me the Joby Gorilla Pod is just too hard to manage for the perfect flat angle, plus it's not comfortable to hold when collapsed. This Joby Handypod is everything I need! When the tripod is expanded, it's flat and very sturdy! When the tripod is folded, it ergonomically fits in your hand! Such a great product! I love it!

    I give talks at church events, I preach and teach religious education. This JOBY - HandyPod Mobile Lock for Mobile Phones gives me a lot of flexibility plus the ability to record myself in order to evaluate myself. If the talk or teaching is good, I might post it from time to time. Love it!

    This is the best clamp/tripod for phones. The handle gripping is great, and the tripod sturdy. The clamp can be used in portrait and landscape and keeps the phone perfectly secured with or without a case. My favorite part is the button that allows me to easily adjust the balance and angle.

    After I figured out how to turn the top so that my phone would work while fitting only the width of the phone and not the height for vertical use, the little tripod was sturdy and easy to use. However, I believe it would be more flexible if it got a little taller.

    I needed something that held my phone without tilting. Other small tripods have a ball that is plastic and either doesn't tighten or breaks too easily and can't hold a smart phone without the phone part falling over. This has a great locking mechanism.

    I purchased this item for my Sony A6000 camera. The item is very well constructed and sturdy. The grip is excellent and is a solid mini tripod.

    The JOBY - HandyPod Mobile Lock for Mobile Phones is very well made. Holds my iPhone X in place with ease. Easy to use. The only down size is it's size, it is a little short but other then that I like it and recommend it.

    I use this tripod to get those much needed IG photos at the gym. This little device has saved a bunch of time that I used to spend on setting up my phone at the right angle.

    This was surprisingly a good quality tripod. It has a small form factor and attachments are useful for your cell phone as well. If you get it on sale, it is probably a good buy.

    I love this for doing videos from my Samsung cellphone. Holds secure. Used it also on my own pvc filming pole to hold my phone while fishing. Strong and steady.

    Bought this stand for another piece of equipment other than a cellphone and it's really a good stand. Holds the equipment securely and offers good flexibility as far as height is concerned.

    I have bought and discarded many phone tripods, but this one is by far the most secure and stable I’ve ever had. The transition from horizontal to vertical is brilliant and solid.

    This works well as a tripod and it’s lightweight as a handheld stick also. It’s great for vlogging as you go around, and sturdy & durable in case you drop it. Highly recommended!

    I needed a mount for my Dji Osmo Mobile 2. The 2 paired together perfectly. If very well built and strong, yet flexible. You can't go wrong with it.
