I am very impressed with this phone/tablet stand. It's made of aircraft aluminum with a black powder coat. It is very well made, the adjustable plate has very strong hinges that allow it to be adjusted in many ways. It has enough space as you can see in my picture to hold my fire hd 8 tablet with a faux leather case on it. I like this style of stand because it is higher with great adjustability so I can have something in front of it and still be able to see the whole tablet. It has 4 rubber feet on the bottom that keep it from scooting around. It also has rubber pieces at the bottom of the holding arm and 2 more on the top as to not scratch your phone or tablets. This is so much nicer than a plastic stand and even folds completely to put in a pocket or purse.
