This thing is awesome, just the right amount of tension to hold my phone in place for landscape mode (which is what I got it for). It's quite compact as it folds down flat, and it works great with my other JOBY gear.
I do have a few complaints/concerns however. While being able to hold my phone in portrait mode is not necessary, it would be a nice plus. In addition I'm a little concerned about the durability of this mount over time. It feels as if it might wear over time and eventually become less useful.
But for now it's working beautifully for what I need it for.
I have other Joby equipment, so I gave the GripTight Mount a shot. It's basically a frame with a spring-loaded extension that has a hook at one end. You screw the frame onto your tripod mount, pull out the extension, slip in your phone and let the extension close down until it's gripping it across the middle. Then you take your shots.
The frame is rubberized to hold the phone in place, and how well it works depends on the kind of case you've got on your phone; mine is leather, so it gripped pretty well. A friend's case is hard, glossy plastic, and her phone tended to slip a bit if you jostled the tripod. It didn't fall out of the frame when held parallel to the ground...but it did slip about an inch out of kilter. (The frame, by the way, was too small to fit another buddy's ginormous Android phablet, so this is a one-size-fits-MOST smartphones, not one-size-fits-all).
There was a fair amount of play in the spring-loaded extension, which felt a little flimsy. It certainly did the job indoors, but I probably wouldn't use it outdoors in windy or action conditions; the phone probably wouldn't stay in place.
Ultimately, fiddling with the GripTight and an iPhone in an overhead position was such a pain in the neck I broke down and bought a real digital video setup. But I don't really blame the GripTight for that; I think I pretty much got what I paid for.
In the use case of a fixed location or someplace where you're not concerned about dropping the phone, it's great. Otherwise, go with something like the RetiCAM Metal Tripod Mount (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FS5L9D4). The RetiCAM doesn't fold up but is rock solid and your device will not slip or fall out of that one.
As a bonus there seems to be enough space within the grip so you can slightly tilt the phone up or down once you have it in the grip. For instance you can place the bottom of the phone towards the front of the grip, and the top of the phone towards the back of the grip and your camera will then be aimed up a little bit. This is nice if you want to just use this device on its own without a tripod. You can just sit it on a table or something and still aim it up and down a bit to get a good shot. Pretty useful since it can fold flat and be thrown in your pocket if you don't want to take a whole tripod with you.
Anyway, this device is study and seems rugged but dead simple. Exactly what you need to mount your smartphone on a standard tripod.
Somehow I must have overlooked this exact model which is cheap and nearly perfect. It does require excellent hand-held stability as it is not stable by design. It will sit flat on a surface and the way it's made you can slightly tilt your phone forward or back a few degrees. I use it with a stickpic on a hiking pole. It works best if I stop along the trail and simply rest the hiking pole on a branch or rock and record a quick video. When I do an action video on the move it is tricky to keep the phone from shaking or tilting a bit, but after a little practice it seems good. I think the other camera mounts available would suffer the same flaw as the phone's weight all ends up on a 1/4" bolt attached to a lightweight pole.
I can not speak to durability as I just got it, but have already put a backup in my cart in case I lose it.
