    Not a true selfie stick but....

    Initially when I bought this item it was meant for my hiking trips and small DIY videos . I thought it can suffice as a selfie stick but ... it’s most preferred to be a stand alone device for distant shots and recordings. I love the rugged leg design it’s great for gripping and stability for clumsy people like me . Just wish the part that clamps the phone was bigger to hold my iphone with my otter box casing (slim fit )! Overall it’s a great buy u can actually feel how stable the device is but u have to trust the grippers around your phone without a case will hold . So far so good for me !

    Sturdy little stand for the cell phone. I have an iPhone 6plus and it comfortably holds the large screen. I bought it because it has the standardized screw in for cameras as well. However, I deducted one star because it has a hard time holding up heavier cameras especially when you wrap it on a pole. It slides and moves. Essentially this is for cell phones and very light cameras. The beauty of this product is that it can morph itself into all kinds of shape and forms so you can place your cell phone in any uneven surface or hang it from branches and poles.

    I wanted something that could fit in my jacket pocket,so I could walk around with less but also enjoy taking videos and photos creatively along the way. This is a great product if you are looking for something decently affordable , that will last a long time,portable, and easy to use. It's smaller and shorter than a selfie stick and there's a lot more flexibility in creativity when filming or shooting from my phone, so I can enjoy my memories even more!

    Solid, Not Perfect For Large Phones

    I have a Pixel 2 XL in a DBrand Grip (bumper) case and while it fits in the mounting bracket, it's pretty tight. It's better without the case on, however balance becomes a bit of an issue bc you can't directly center the bracket on the phone because it presses the volume buttons if you put the phone in it dead center. But it doesn't fall over if you just set it down and it gets the job done. Overall happy with it

    I purchased this Joby Tripod for my smartphone. It works really well when I want to attach my phone to a prop to record videos or photos. It is easy to use and allows me to be in the videos and photos, instead of always being behind the camera. So if you want to be able to attached this around a prop or fence you may so do easily. Highly recommended for smartphone photographers.

    The JOBY Tripod is as flexible as promised and more. The videos and FB Live sessions that I ended up recording after purchasing this tripod are flawless and the positions in which the tripod took the videos are unbelievable. The most recent video of mine was taken using the tripod holing the iPhone when stuck to the side of a flower vase on a table. It truly serves the purpose - small but sturdy and useful!

    I ordered this for my 11yr old son. After watching him try to prop his phone with pillows and books to video a nerf war I thought that this would be a good product. Reviews were good and it will work with is iphone and his small point and shoot camera. It has worked well in the first few weeks that he has had it and seems pretty sturdy. He and I are both happy with this tripod.

    Holds the camera in place for pictures or videos. I like how it handles, it is reliable and comfortable to work. It's light weight make sit easy to carry around and I also appreciate how it can be warped around something for stead pictures or videos. I have told several of my friends about it so far.

    Santa brought this flexible tripod for our daughter for Christmas. She has fun “vlogging” with her fans, her plethora of stuffed animals, so this was the perfect gift to allow for a hands free experience. We can also use it to capture family memories, watch a movie or read a book. Well made and it works on her phone or camera.

    Great product. Love everything about it. I use it for filming videos, holding up my phone so I’m hands-free, normal tripod use for group photos & selfies... it’s been the perfect answer for many more uses as well! Great quality! This is been a great purchase for me. I am very satisfied.

    It was a lot smaller then I thought it would be. The hight is short with the legs out enough to support my iPhone 6+ its only 6" high, not high enough for what I wanted it for. for just shouting selfies or short videos it would be ok. For the price and the size i would not recommend it, But it might be ok for a kid

    Where was this thing when I needed it?

    I did a panel at a local con a few weeks prior and was wondering if someone could have filmed it for YouTube, not knowing this device existed. I wish I had had it sooner, it will make my videos easier to tape. The only thing is that it takes a bit of maneuvering around to get the right camera angle, but it is a pretty cool contraption.

    I needed a new tripod mount for my iPhone XS Max figuring I'd use my existing cheapo mobile tripod - this Joby is far better! I've only used it a few times so far but it feels very sturdy and the mount is stable even on my big phone (in a case.)

    I mainly use this tripod for quick timelapses. It's overall a nice product, however, when putting a phone, it tends to be top heavy and easily catches the wind, causing vibrations when shooting. Other than that small issue (that can be solved with a little jerry-rigging) it's a fine product.

    It fits my iphone 5c great with a case around it as well. i needed a way to have my phone stay on my dashboard for getting driving directions. at one point the legs did disconnect from the rest, since you can pull off the legs, that fustrated me since i was putting it in my bag when not in use.

    I really enjoy using this Tripod, you can grip it to anything also can adjust it to a certain height. Only down side to it is holding the phone itself. Gotta be careful recommend using a case on your phone while using the product.

    Purchased to use with cell phone for YouTube live. Holds the phone with no problems. Seems to be sturdy material. The only problem I’ve had is when someone moves the tripod, it’s like I have to start all over again with finding the correct angles.

    This thing is awesome!! Ever tried to film a video with one hand? It’s a pain huh. With this you don’t have to. It’s a mini tri pod but can also grab onto objects! This has made pictures and videos way easier to take now that I don’t have to hold my phone. Just set up and press record.

    Works as advertised. I have a 6s plus in a case and the fit is tight or at least it will easily slip or get squeezed out of the holder if not gentle. Wish there was more of a front lip in the edge of the holder. Haven’t tried it without the case on.

    Does the trick for what I’m using it for. Would like a little more versatility in the mount in being able to rotate. Have only had for a couple weeks so the jury is still out on the durability of the legs and their longevity.
