The GorillaPod Hybrid is slightly bigger all around with a height of 9.5" but still feels just as light as the GripTight. Everything is made of durable plastic and the larger diameter joints on the Hybrid's tripod legs feel a lot sturdier with more tension than on the GripTight. You can feel confident in the tripod supporting your phone in any position.
The integrated, non-removable ballhead is all plastic, but is well constructed and feels nice and smooth. It also includes an integrated bubble level for horizontal leveling (no level for vertical). The attached twist knob locks the ballhead securely into place with no noticeable play unlike the GripTight. The ballhead also features a quick release plate with a large button to release, but there is no other lock to make sure you don't accidentally depress the button while you're adjusting the ballhead unlike the GripTight which had a twist lock. Just something to be wary of.
Overall, this Hybrid tripod feels a whole lot better for large smartphone use. This is especially true if you're using a solid smartphone mount like the Reti-Cam (which is what I use) and/or attach third-party lenses. The extra rigidity of the Hybrid is invaluable when adding a bit more weight to the top. So which one would I recommend? Unless you absolutely need the small form factor of the GripTight, I would definitely go with the Hybrid. It is miles better and is still small enough to be portable for most situations.
* Please note that this tripod does not come with a phone mount so you'll have to procure your own.
The tripod fits my camera perfectly: the quick release fits tightly and holds the camera securely. I tried wrapping the legs on various odd objects and various angles, it worked extremely well! Even when I press the button to take a photo there is no noticable bounce. In a low light I would use a timer, which I do even with a regular tripod. An added bonus I did not expect is that it fits into my camera bag if I tilt down the head.
I am attaching a couple of photos for illustration.
Below are some details I collected while deciding which GorillaPod will be the best for my camera. I hope others will find the summary useful as well. The most important thing is to buy the GorillaPod that can handle the weight of your camera (with the heaviest lens it takes, battery, etc).

Ali Julia review
Update July 2015
After 4 years of daily use the tripod legs no longer hold the camera in one position, the camera sags.
I just ordered another one. I have a few other small tripod, nothing works as well.
I wish it lasted forever, but 4 years is not too bad, I used it just about every day.
Will be using this with my GoPro and Sony a6300 for videos. For a little tripod it is pretty sturdy. I'm not sure what probably some people have had with the quick release plate but I have not had any and once it locks in it does not move. My mirrorless camera isn't heavy like my DSLR but with a prime lens it can be a couple of pounds more or less, and this gorillapod seems to serve it well so far.
