Top customer reviews
I think the problem is the size of the Galaxy S4. I did not use have the phone in a case when using this stand, but even without a case the S4 is quite a bit wider than an iPhone. If you are considering this for heavy use with any of the larger Android phones, I would suggest trying the Square Jellyfish tripod instead (also sold on Amazon).
Usage: I bought this because the iPhone 6 actually has quite a good timelapse feature on it, but isn't easy to attach to a stable surface for long periods of time. I wanted the holder part to be able to screw into my standard DSLR tripod, to give me the options of placing it in different places, higher, etc. But the BONUS was that one could also use this as a phone holder for watching videos instead of taking them!
First, sizing: it fits my iPhone 6 (across the side) just fine, even with a slim case on it. It DOES NOT FIT my brother-in-law's iPhone 6 Plus which has the Spigen NEO EX Hybrid Metal case on it: he has to remove the case for the holder to fit it.
I love that this thing folds flat, like to almost the size of a lighter. And it has a little hole that you can use to attach it to your keychain. I don't do that, but you could. I would only be careful about whether having your keyring through that hole affects how you can/can't place your smartphone in it, and whether the keys themselves will get in the way (or clang against your phone during video taking).
There are two parts to this thing: the smartphone holder piece (which has a standard 1/4"-20 thread tripod connector on the bottom), and the 3-legged tripod legs component which screws into the top piece.
Smartphone holder: As mentioned, it folds flat, and though not ROCK solid, feels well built enough that I wouldn't worry about it falling apart during use in the field. The surfaces that contact your phone when holding it have a rubberized coating so it won't scratch, and those prongs have tiny "lips" that make sure your phone won't slip out. The grip is held by a hidden elastic of sorts, and feels like a quality setup: quite a firm, stable grip on my phone!
Tripod: if you look at the provided quicksheet, there's an easy way to open up the legs by dragging a finger with one of the legs around in a circle; be sure to follow that, because otherwise you're just guessing which leg is the one that's stationary and which one will open it up. The lightgrey tips of the legs are again rubberized for grip, though I wish they would have chosen something darker to not get dirty so easily.
Flexibility1: You can't adjust the HEIGHT of the tripod, only the direction in which your phone is pointing. And even that is somewhat limited, meaning if you want to shoot the camera upwards you may have to flip the phone around so its screen is towards the stand. Not a dealbreaker, but something that might annoy you if you had to deal with it a lot.
Flexibility2: This holder is deigned to hold ACROSS your phone sideways, and thus hold your phone in landscape mode (the wide way). If you wanted to have it portrait-oriented (i.e., vertical photos/videos), the holder won't fit like that. The workaround I found is to keep the holder going across your phone, but fold up all the legs together and slant them so they become a big leg for this stand, and prop it from behind.
Stability: the whole point of a tripod is to be more stable than we could hold it by hand. And it does keep its position well (provided you use a coin or something to screw the base on tight enough), at least when new: I'm not sure how it holds up after repeated and long-term use.
I bought one for myself, then let my daughter borrow it. She is a videographer, and uses her phone for many productions. She loved it so much I gave her mine, but had to buy a replacement for myself because I didn't want to be without one!
I use this in meetings to hold my phone while I'm taking notes using a (different product) wireless keyboard. I use it for impromptu photos, time lapses, and to watch netflix/youtube on my bedside table. It's just nice to have it around.
OK, so it doesn't hang from trees or wrap around polls, but what it lacks in ability it more than makes up for in availability. Even if you need that capacity, I would still buy this also. I see those specialty tripods as just that (specialized) where as this is something everyone can use.
I think everyone should have one of these.
I was not given a dang thing in return for this review. I just like it. ;-)
Took off one star because the phone holder will not hold an iPhone 6s Plus or a Nexus 6P with the case on it... I am not a fan of removing my case when standing my phone on a stack of rocks on a mini tripod... Seems like a 1/4" oversight that is keeping JOBY from being able to confidently market to all cell phone owners. Wife has a smaller phone so we still get use out of it.
Excellent design, compact, folds out of the way when not needed.
With this and a good camera/phone, you can literally have a very nice tripod+camera setup in your pocket, rather than carting around ten or twenty pounds of DSLR, tripod, and lenses in a bag.
Took me a while to realize this, but its the artist, not the camera, who makes the picture. The greatest camera/lens/equipment in the world is not going to improve your composition, or your location. All it will do is to help make your picture-taking a bit easier. Neither bad composition, timing or location will improve with a big, fancy rig.
Which is where this tripod/stand comes in. You, your phone or subcompact camera, and this stand is all you will need for a majority of your pictures. (excluding taking long-distance animal photos on the Serengiti, Mt Everest and such, which are not your daily events anyway).
Obviously, opinions differ, you might think I am nuts.
