Update October 2012:

This is one of two reviews of Elago mobile device stands. I recently bought an elago P2 Stand for tablets, can now compare both for suitability for smaller smart phones and larger smartphones. Watch the video for a more in-depth discussion.

This is a very attractive stand, well-suited for nesting a smartphone for video calling, or multimedia player. The cable management holes in the back work as well for audio cables as for charge/sync cables. In this review, you'll see that I replaced their small sticker on the backrest with a iPod Nano screen protector to give a bit more soft surface area for whatever I put on the stand.

Others have claimed this stand tips over easily. I hope I demonstrate in the video that this really depends upon WHAT you put in the stand. Take a look, ask any questions in the comments, and as always please click "Yes" if this review helps you in your shopping.

I've been looking for a stand for my new iPhone 3GS and I've have visited so many different websites during my search. I chose the M2 Mobile Stand because I wanted a stand that I could use without taking my phone out of its protective case. The stand is very well made and extremely solid. The M2 also has rubber feet on the bottom so it does not move around while it is on my desk so it is very easy to email or text while the iPhone is on the stand. The M2 is made of fairly thick but light weight metal and therefore it is not bendable, however the iPhone lies at a very comfortable angle while it is on the stand. It is very difficult to see in the manufacturer's photos; however the stand also has two small slots in the bottom "fingers" of the stand that matches the speakers on the bottom of the iPhone so the sound is not compromised (genius!).

The M2 will hold my iPhone in either the vertical or horizontal position comfortably and I can use a USB cord to charge the phone while it is in the stand. Aesthetically it looks better when it is charging vertically because the USB cord goes through the slot in the back of the stand; however it will charge horizontally as well so you can watch movies as it charges. I know some people will not be happy paying $30 for a stand with no power or docking cord but Apple supplies one with the iPhone so I'm just using that one. I think it is a great quality product and I'll be buying another one for my home computer. Well worth the money.

Pros: design, solid construction, able to hold iPhone without removing the protective case, slot in back of stand for USB cable, holes in bottom of stand for iPhone speakers.
Cons: Non Adjustable

Let me preface this review by saying that this product is beautiful, solidly constructed, and very useful. I keep the stand next to my laptop so that I can easily answer calls or Facetime without picking the phone up. It has the potential to be a perfect stand for the iPhone. But, it sports two major flaws:

1. The skid pads on the bottom are useless and don't stop the stand from sliding when you press on the iPhone's screen
2. The iPhone's back rubs against the stand's bare metal, which could scratch the phone

Thankfully these issues could easily be fixed by Elago. I fixed the issues myself by buying Waxman 4215395N 1/2-Inch Heavy Duty Bumper, Clear, Round and fixing eight of them to the stand: four bumpers on the bottom, and four on the plate where the phone is placed. I've uploaded pictures that show where I placed the bumpers. By doing this, the stand no longer slides on my glass table and is held firmly in place. When I press on the iPhone's screen or home button, the phone is rock solid in the stand. In addition, the bumpers prevent the stand's metal from scratching the iPhone.

If Elago added a similar fix to the stand, it would be a 5 star product. Until then, it's a great stand that can be easily made perfect by the end user. It'll just cost you the extra $5 for the bumpers.

All of the good reviews of this product had my expectations set very high and, unfortunately, this product did not deliver. I was looking for a stand I could use on my nightstand to hold a cased iPhone 4 and a naked iPod Touch 3g (though not at the same time). I had just about given up when I found this product and couldn't wait to get it.

The build quality is excellent and that's this product's biggest plus.

It holds my iPhone 4 in it's Otterbox Defender perfectly and the iPod Touch in a Speck Pixelskin sits well, too. But I wanted a stand that would hold my iDevice "as is" whether I had a case on it or not. Yes, it fits both while they are naked, but not securely. The slightest touch will cause them to slide off and the supports that are on the stand do not keep it from touching the metal so scratching is a real possibility. Slightly Widening the curve on the two supports and carrying the clear "cushioning" through the entire curve might do the trick there. And moving the logo with it's thin layer of cushioning higher, to the top edge of the stand, might help.

The other issue I have is that the stand is just too light. It moves at the slightest bump--such as trying to tap the "sleep" button in an alarm app--and if the iDevice is naked, then it moves as well. I solved this problem with some poster tac around the bottom edge, but even that is not perfect and ruins the sleek look.

If neither of these issues matter to you, then I'm sure you'll be very happy with this. It's well-built and looks great anywhere.

This stand holds the iPhone at a good angle both for looking at and for hearing the speaker. I like the fact that it can hold it comfortably either in portrait or landscape. I's attractive and looks like a tiny iMac. What I'd like to see next: a stand stable enough to allow full use of the touch screen without knocking it over.

What you see is what you get. It is not adjustable, but I think it is pretty sleek and cool. The 2 slots in back make it easy to attach your charging cord and headphone cord to the unit without throwing it off balance. I use it by my bed and have cord hooked up to the headphone jack to my stereo, cool way to listen to tunes in bed and nice for using as an alarm clock as well. Might get another one for my office.

UPDATE: 12/05/2013

I still own it, still use it, still love it - works great with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and accommodates it even in a case.

------------------------------

I bought the stand in Silver for my first generation iPhone and liked it. I LOVE it with my iPhone 4 since there's no shiny "chrome" to clash with the brushed finish of the stand. Paired with the Apple Wireless Keyboard (Retail Packaging) my iPhone looks like "Mini Me" next to my 27" iMac. I also like using the stand to hold my iPhone by the bed when running my alarm clock app. The narrower profile of the iPhone 4 means a wide variety of cases should be compatible with the non-adjustable stand.

The one thing I didn't like about the Elago M2 Mobile Stand and why I knocked a star off is that there was nothing provided to protect a naked iPhone from scraping against the aluminum. This was easily solved by applying Plasti-dip 12219 "Performix" Multi-purpose Rubber Coating 22 Oz. - Clear to any points of contact on the stand.

Update: While I still sometimes use this for my iPhone, my current favorite use for the Elago M2 is as a stand for my Barnes & Noble NOOK Touch eBook Reader (NEWEST model, WIFI Only)(aka Nook 2nd Edition). It provides a stable and attractive stand that allows for hands-free reading at a desk or table. I use it when eating or knitting, and I can tap the screen with a pinkie to "turn" pages. It also makes a nice charging stand, obviously in conjunction with a charging cable.

This is also my go-to "portable" stand. It may not fold, but it IS lightweight and sturdy. It easily fits in my overnight bag for use with my iPhone or Nook.

Not much you can say about a bent piece of metal. It's one solid piece so hopefully it won't break. The edges are smooth, no burs or slivers. Quality product, and it's universal so I can use products other than an iPod. I recommend this product if you have multiple devices that aren't all iPods or so long as you don't mind a free hanging sync cable.

Check out the pictures I posted of my iPod 2g in the iFrogz Luxe case.

The stand is well made. My only major complaint is that on the iPhone 5 with the headphone jack on the bottom of the phone, you cannot plug it in while the phone is sitting vertically in the stand. Since that's a main reason I got the stand, it's a pretty big issue for me. Also, a less significant complaint -- there's a lot of extra space in the stand if you are not using a case (brackets are too deep). I will probably get a dock to use instead, if I can find a decent one for the iPhone 5.

Not only is this stand great looking... it's also very functional. When at my desk, I use the M2 mobile stand to hold my phone while checking dates, email, weather,etc. I can make calls without removing the phone from the stand... it's that sturdy. The angle is pefect, both vertically and horizontally so that I can get a great view of my iPhone 4's display. Beauty and function in one package!
