    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

    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 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.

    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.

    This tripod does what it’s supposed to it holds your phone. Only bad thing is it only holds it in the landscape orientation wish it also did portrait orientation but it doesn’t. But overall still nice with the posable legs

    Finally one that fits the plus model iPhones. Pros- Works just like the older ones with improved pivoting head for portrait shots! Cons- the legs pop off way easier then the older style one. They snap back together but still annoying.

    Bought this as the tripod stand for my gear 360 camera. The lrgs of the stand can be folded as desired making it a product that can be locked on to bridge railings, wires without the need of any other support. Overall good product.

    This tripod is good for its price. It keeps my phone steady and does what it's supposed to do. I have noticed, however, that it seems to have trouble gripping uneven surfaces if you have a heavy phone.

    This little flexible iPhone /cell phone holder does a good job of holding my iPhone while I film myself golfing. With only a little effort I can even prop it up on my golf bag at the range.

    If you just need a small stand for your phone or camera, this is the one. The joints hold positions well for a steady shot or recording. Base swivels for full customization of position.

    Product works well as I video myself playing drums. Do wish it could wrap onto things better and work in landscape. But still solid product.
