The Glif is a smartphone accessory with two primary functions: mounting your phone onto a tripod, and propping your phone up at various angles. The design is simple, yet out of this simple design emerges countless uses. Mount your phone to a tripod for taking great pictures or making movies. Prop your phone up to watch videos on the plane or check Twitter while you eat breakfast. All of that and more in a compact design that is manufactured in America. The Glif is made from recyclable rubberized plastic that feels great and plays nice with your phone, and is small enough to fit in your pocket, purse, or backpack. It has a 1/4"-20 thread that fits any standard tripod or camera mount. The Glif will work with practically any smartphone, with or without a case. Use the included hex key to fit the Glif to your phone. Once sized to your phone, you won't need to make any additional adjustments. The Glif will fit devices between 58.4–86.4mm wide and 3.1–12.7mm thick.

Tripods are a big deal. In another lifetime I got very serious about photography and learned enough to even make some money from it. I learned breathing exercises and odd positions to minimize camera shake, but your body is not very stable, no matter what you do. The Glif is one of the most secure and handy ways to get the best out of the fantastic camera in your iPhone.
There are some alternatives on the market that are a little cheaper, but they generally aren't as useful or portable. Also the Glif can act as a stand by itself, so if you can find a counter, rock, or table to stick it on, you don't even need to have a tripod with you to get the benefits of one.
In addition to improving low-light photos, it allows you to do things like use the time-lapse feature on the iPhone, take group pictures with you in the shot (selfies!), or long exposure with the right software.
You adjust the glif using an included allen wrench. There is an adjustment on each end, one for the tripod setting and one for the desk style setting. Once you've dialed it in you can put the allen wrench away and your Glif is ready to go for that device. If you have other devices you'll need to adjust this each time you change devices.
This will fit a very large range of devices. Including devices with cases. However todays larger phones may cause issues. this will fit an Iphone 6s+ easily. But if you put a case on such as a lifeproof, then you'll find the Glif just barely functions and not very securely. Anything smaller than that will work fantastically.
I also bought the Manfrotto Mini Tripod for desktop video making and the Glif works perfectly there too. Plus the angled ends really do work well to enable the Glif's stand-alone stand function. For example I've used it to prop up my phone on a table in portrait orientation while having pizza. Sounds trivial but a real bonus when you're on the go and catching up on messages on a lunch break somewhere.
I can't speak for its durability as I've just received it but it feels very solid and well made. So for now despite it being a bit pricy; considering its very practical design, multiple functions and that it's excelled at everything I tried so far - plus the hex key adjustment tool and keychain holder it comes with - I'm giving it 5 stars.
The camera app functionality on smartphones have improved to the point where you can take high quality photos in low light. Exactly the situation for which a tripod mount like this comes in handy. If you purchase a tripod with a panorama swivel head, this attachment will enable you do these wonderful panorama,and other special effect photos even better.
It's just a wonderful photographic gadget, not new by any stretch of the imagination. An inheritance from my father, who was a professional photographer, was a handheld Kodak C-Clamp with tripod ball head. Not much new under the sun, but this reincarnation of the C-clamp will make you smile when you see your improved pictures.
Oh! I bought 4. One each for my daughter, son, my son's girl friend, and ......me!
