I recently got very into smartphone photography and honestly, I wish I'd known about this product from the beginning. I paid $20 for a smartphone mini-mount and it fell apart. When researching a new tripod I was offered the chance to try this product in exchange for an impartial review and I immediately ordered a professional camera tripod (at a great price).
I was really nervous to see if it would fit and it does! The screwhole on this will fit a standard camera tripod, meaning you can buy just one tripod for use with your smartphone and also for your DSLR or digital camera (even if you plan to buy it later). Considering the price of specific smartphone tripods, this is a much needed product.
There are two screw holes so you can position it horizontally or vertically and due to the simplicity of the design it's extremely well made. I have quite a large phone (LG G3) and it stretches far enough to fit without putting pressure on or damaging the phone.
I love that you can use this with a professional extendable tripod and get the best of both worlds. It doesn't need to be extremely flexible or roll around as it will attach directly to the part of a tripod that allows you to tilt the smartphone at different angles like a camera and because of the design, it is not going to break with overuse. Five stars, I'm in love!
