I LOVE this cellphone stand! It was a game changer for my home office. Before, I’d prop my cell on the laptop edge, or book, or anything to access the mute button easier (and other functions). Living in the country, in a valley, I’d loose reception if I swiveled even a little in my chair, so I always had to ground the cell on my desktop. Now, my work cellphone is always at the perfect angle to access its functions in and out of a call; plus, the speaker is more vibrant, I guess because the sound is projected off of the desktop. The cellphone itself, is always accessible in it’s new, grounded home next to my monitor. Also, it’s so much better to see incoming calls and texts, even when I am a few feet away from the desk. Of all of the stands I looked at, I suspected this was the best rubberized base pad out there, and it turned out to be true. My wife has another brand, with small round rubber pads, and I noted mine was superior in not slipping. It’s extremely sturdy, and has the right amount of tension in it’s flip feature. The wide feet for the phone allows me to use it with my cell case on. It’s sturdy enough for my iPad, as well. I have been highly recommending it to my colleagues and friends. You can’t beat the function of this item for such an incredibly low price.
