This turned out to be a very good purchase. Purchased primarily for a iPhone but also used to mount a Logitech web cam. Because both the phone and web cam are relatively light the tripod worked great. When I attached a little heavier camera s when the trouble began. The tripod is not designed for anything much heavier than a phone. The included phone adapter works very well. Can be mounted either in portrait or landscape positions. I suggest you purchase a Bluetooth remote to make life a little easier when trying to take photos or videos. All in all a very good unit.

This is a sturdy and secure tripod! The part that holds the phone has quite a bit of tension to secure it, the ball-pivot support offers a wide degree of angling, and the tripod legs/feet have a rubber padding on the bottom that allows the legs to stay secure on a surface even when not opened fully. My only two gripes about this product are: - the tension of the phone holder is a little difficult to stretch open while trying to put the phone in. I wouldn't call it a deal-breaker, just be aware that it's not super easy. - the fastening mechanism for the ball-pivot is also difficult to use. It is a small lever on the side has to be pushed and held in order to move the ball-joint, and the tension on this is also strong which makes this hard to do. I may call this feature a deal-breaker. I would have rather it been a fastening screw than this tension slide.
I'm a stay at home parent and I love to watch my son grow up through my own eyes. However, I have a lot of family that lives out of state due to the military. This tripod works great to set up and start recording video of myself and my son interacting so that family can take advantage of seeing his life stages, and I get to still be in the moment. I have a Nexus 6P and with my bulky case it still fits with no extension tube, which is saying a lot because it's a rather large phone. The legs are easily adjustable but it does need a fairly wide area to set down on, such as a desk, the floor or a table. About 1 square foot will do.
