We purchased 2 of the black metal phone stands. It works well with our iPhone 8 plus that has an Otterbox Defender case on both. It comes with 4 soft small round pads for the bottom of the stand so it will not scratch what ever surface it is siting on, although I doesn't look like it will scratch any surface even without having the little feet pads. This also comes with extra feet pads along with extra rubber pad that sits behind the phone so it will not slide off the stand. You can use this for your iPhone vertically or horizontally, both directions work well with this stand. I like the fact I can have the phone plugged in while it is on the stand with no issues with the cord. For the price this stand is well worth the money spent.
