This review is from: Mini Adjustable Tripod for Apple iPhone 3G / 3GS / 4 / 4S / 5 / 5s / 5c and Apple iPod Touch - 360 degree swivel - AAA Products® (Electronics)
I didn't buy this off here, but I looked at these reviews before buying and I don't think they really represent the product very well, so I want to set the record straight. I also looked for a review on youtube which helped me a lot.
I bought this primarily for my ipod touch 4 which is much thinner than any iphone or other ipod but it holds it well and firmly in place. The top adjustment part is on a spring I'd imagine so that's how it's held in place so well. There is also some thin foam on the inside to stop your phone/ipod from getting scratched or damaged. I also have a blackberry touch 9800 (I think) and it also fits in with no problems.
Yes the item does seem a bit cheap but for the price, I'm not actually fussed. I don't know how people have broken them so quickly? Perhaps their tripods were faulty or they were just being a bit too rough with it? Who knows. Mine is fine, and the fact that the legs extend is brilliant.
The ball fixture that allows the holder to move '360 degrees' needs to be screwed tight, obviously don't move the ball without unscrewing because you'll just wreck it. But again this feature does the job.
Even if the bottom half does break, I know I can invest in a better tripod and just screw the ipod/phone holder on to the top of it, so it's worth it just for that really.
All in all this product is worth the money, it's cheap and cheerful but it does the job. I hope this helps any prospective buyers make a more informed decision.
