The stand itself is pretty durable and well made. It is well designed to allow the user to set devices in the cradle without having to worry about whether it’s already plugged in or not. However... the base is not heavy enough to remain stable when devices are set on it vertically. If it had more weight on the bottom, this would be an even better product.
The finish is great and durable. It does what it’s supposed to do and looks great too! I've been using mine for a couple of months and the pink finish is still flawless. It's GREAT for watching movies (in landscape orientation) in bed!
EDIT: The Seller reached out regarding the above review and offered to refund or replace the product which I appreciate, but is not necessary. As I stated above, the product itself is good and I'm able to use it, however it's the design of the product that could use improvement. The base needs to be heavier to counter-balance the orientation of the device it supports. I have modified my original 3-star review to 4 stars as after consideration, I do believe the original rating was a bit harsh. I have an iPhone 7 which is not a particularly tall phone; I would not use this stand to hold an iPhone Plus vertically at all as it would not take much to throw off the balance and send the phone tumbling backwards, but if you're ONLY looking to use it horizontally (landscape), this stand is still awesome.
