Best Selfie Sticks & Cell Phone Tripods in 2020

Selfie Stick Tripod with Bluetooth Wireless Remote, 3 in 1 Extendable Selfie Stick with Tripod Stand for iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max/X/XR/XS/XS MAX/8/8 Plus/7,Galaxy S10/S9 Plus/S8 Plus/Note 10/8 Review:

I absolutely LOVE how this Tripod/selfie stick can be folded down to almost the size of my hand. I hate having my normal tripod in my bag because it is so bulky. This one is smaller than my umbrella but expands to over 2 feet. I usually regret not having my tripod when I go out alone because I can’t take photos when I find places that would be good backgrounds. I will now never have that issue again. I’m so excited about this.

Also, I’ve had to send several tripods and selfie sticks back because they don’t fit my IPhone XS with an otter box on it. This one expands so my phone fits it in.

It’s also like rubber on both sides of the phone holder part to hold your phone and it seems to be more durable. I added a photo so you know what I mean. Also, the phone holder holds your phone ALOT BETTER than the metal ones. The metal ones I always had to worry about my phone falling out if the tripod was bumped but this one I haven’t had a single issue with it yet.

Lastly, the remote. I always lose the remotes to my tripods. This one has a place to put it so you won’t lose it. When it’s a selfie stick you leave it in that little spot and can hit it with your finger without losing grip or having to use your other hand. When it’s a tripod you just pull it out and it’s so small no one would notice you have it in your hand. I took a photo of this to explain it a bit more.

I really can’t think of any cons for this. I think the only two things that could possible make this better is 1. If it could get taller but then it wouldn’t be as compact and 2. The tripod legs were made out of metal or something to make them stronger not that it isn’t already strong.

Phone Tripod, UBeesize 50" Adjustable Travel Video Tripod Stand with Cell Phone Mount Holder & Smartphone Bluetooth Remote, Compatible with iPhone/Android (Black) Review:

I love this tripod! It's lightweight but sturdy. I have another UBeesize tripod that comes with their 8in ring light, but due to the features of this one, I put my 8in ring light on it instead of the one it came with. Don't get me wrong, I love both of them, but the easy panning works much better for me.

It comes with a carrying case that you can easily toss over your shoulder, which is another thing that I appreciate because I have so much to carry around. Again, due to its light weight, I don't have to struggle to carry it. It also comes with a remote and an extender for larger phones. The remote works perfectly with my Android (I've been able to use it on the phone camera and apps such as SC by using the iPhone button - just a tip! :)) The level bubble is accurate, and hasn't given me any issues.

I'm used to using my Manfrotto tripod, which is quite heavy, so I can definitely appreciate this because it has some of the same features and isn't a hassle to carry around with my camera and other things.

I have zero complaints about this product, and I look forward to using it for years to come!

Selfie Stick Tripod, UBeesize 51" Extendable Tripod Stand with Bluetooth Remote for iPhone & Android Phone, Heavy Duty Aluminum, Lightweight Review:

First off, I want to say that this product does exactly what it's supposed to do and as shown in the photos. It DOES tilt and swivel, contrary to some odd reviews. There are adjustments on the head to hold the camera in either portrait or landscape position, AND it also will tilt facing straight to the ground or directly straight up, contrary to some odd reviews. The BT remote immediately paired with my iPhone X and I was taking tripod selfies with my dog in minutes. Unless we bought different products, people claiming that this head does not tilt or swivel have simply not figured it out yet. It does both. The stick appears sturdy, it stands on it's own easily and the base is plenty wide. Comes with a travel bag, and a GoPro adapter. I just hope that I don't lose the tiny BT fob, may attach it to the stick for safety when traveling. Great purchase!

Phone Tripod, Flexible Cell Phone Tripod Adjustable Camera Stand Holder with Wireless Remote and Universal Clip 360° Rotating Mini Tripod Stand for iPhone, Samsung Android Phone, Sports Camera GoPro Review:

 I recently started a YouTube channel and had been using a small/cheap tripod that was ok. It lasted a few weeks but was breaking so I ordered up the Erligpowht tripod. It is well built and versatile, makes taking photos easier without having to spend 15 minutes trying to find the perfect leveled spot and then positioning it without worrying about falling. And it looks very durable and high quality, way better than the last one I bought. Really sturdy materials, was pleasantly surprised by the quality for the price. The parts are solid, well-made, and they get the job done for shooting film wherever you are. I also use this with my GoPro and it works so well. I recommend it to all my friends who have an interest in shooting video with their phones and cameras. It's a really fun product that you can get creative with. It also contains a Bluetooth remote for family or group photos. I'm looking forward to using this thing to improve my videos, thanks Erligpowht!

UBeesize Tripod S, Premium Phone Tripod, Flexible Tripod with Wireless Remote Shutter, Compatible with iPhone/Android Samsung, Mini Tripod Stand Holder for Camera GoPro/Mobile Cell Phone (Upgraded) Review:

The legs seem to be pretty effective and I've felt no issues with them so far. Personally it irritates me that I won't likely ever be able to get them perfectly straight again, but that's a purely superficial trade-off that I knew I was making by getting a tripod where the legs can be wrapped around poles and other vertical objects. It felt definitively sturdy when I wrapped it around fairly small poles, and of course it stands upright just fine.

The clipping mechanism, however, has room for improvement. First of all, I'm not a fan of the fact that the vertical mounting screw can easily be detached from the base. There are two buttons, one on each side, that releases the mounting screw and anything on the other end. You have to be quite certain that you've fully clicked it into place to know your phone is secure. If you haven't heard the click, the phone or camera could fall out without much force. If it's properly clicked into place, it's pretty securely fastened, but there's just a bit of uncertainty. I'd prefer it to just be one solid piece.

My other complaints are more minor. The back of the phone clamp has a nice foam backing, but the top and bottom "jaws" are just hard plastic with teeth. Having the foam on the top and bottom jaw would make me feel a bit better about not scuffing my phone, and it's a firm enough grip that they shouldn't impact the phone's stability in the mount. I'll probably find some foam material and glue it in there to see how it feels soon.

Speaking of stability, the hole used to mount the phone clamp vertically (there is a hole on the back that would lay the phone face-up as well) is too shallow, meaning there is some room for the phone clamp to wiggle around. It's securely attached so it won't fall off, but the wiggle is undesirable. I'd recommend finding a washer or two and putting those on the screw in between the base and the phone mount. Eliminating that gap with the washers will fix that issue, but it should just be drilled to the proper depth to begin with. Just make sure you leave enough of the screw above the washers to properly secure the phone. The other hole (to mount the phone face-up) is drilled to the proper depth, and I see no reason why this one shouldn't be.

Selfie Stick Tripod, 52" Extendable Phone Camera Selfie Stick with Tripod Stand & Rechargeable Wireless Remote for iPhone Xs X 6 7 8/ Huawei/Samsung Galaxy S9 Note8/ Xiaomi/GoPro/Android Phones Review:

I have ordered a few cell phone tripods now, but this is hands down my favorite. I decided I needed finally buckle down and get a selfie stick to help document my travels, but did. It want to pick both a selfie stick AND a tripod. The tripod is easy to use, able to be extended to a considerable length (for both selfies and tripod use). The remote is compact and easy to use. Just turn it “on”, pair using Bluetooth on your phone, and wha-la! You’re ready to be a pro. I like how you manually adjust the phone cradle so I don’t worry about the common “spring” (like so many others use) failing me. To extend the selfie stick a simple twist of the top unlocks each portion so it is easy to control how long you want it. You can tell it is well thought out as it has a holder for the remote ON the tripod. No digging through the bottom of your bag trying to find the discrete little device. You can tell this is well designed, thought out, and the perfect solution for getting the right pictures at the right angles WITHOUT having to ask a stranger to take the shot for you!

Phone tripod, UBeesize Portable and Adjustable Camera Stand Holder with Wireless Remote and Universal Clip, Compatible with iPhone, Android Phone, Sports Camera GoPro【2018 NEW VERSION】 Review:

Edit 6/20/18: UBeesize reached out after my original review and wanted to make it right. They shipped me out a replacement Tripod and I can report that it has so far been working great - it's very possible the two I received that broke were just a defective batch but so far this newest one they sent me has survived vacationing in the mountains of Asheville and various other Skype sessions without any sign of the clip breaking. Due to their outstanding customer service alone I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one. Updating to 5 stars.

Original Review:
This tripod worked great for a few weeks but there appears to be a flaw in the design that allows the bracket with the phone clip to break off from the tripod. This is actually the 2nd time this occurred - the first time I bought this product the tripod was dropped and the same part broke, so I blamed myself and ordered another one. Now this second one has broke, but it was from simply using the product as designed and removing the phone from the clip. My guess is that the fall my first tripod suffered wasn't all that bad, I just got unlucky in that it fell on the most fragile/brittle part of the unit.

Either way, after having two of these units fail in the same place now, one because of a small fall to the floor, the other during regular intended use, I don't think I'll be getting another one. The pictures are from the most recent unit that broke during regular use.

Mpow Selfie Stick Tripod, All in 1 Portable Extendable Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote & Fill Light, Compatible iPhone 11/11Pro/Xs max/XS/XR/X/8P/7P, Galaxy S10/S9/S8, Gopro/Small Camera,Black Review:

I bought this Selfie Stick Tripod by Mpow shortly after losing another more basic selfie stick by Mpow, and I'm so glad that I did. Although the basic selfie stick from Mpow is cheaper, this selfie stick tripod with a removable bluetooth remote, rechargeable light, and extendable arm is so worth the extra $4.

I take this selfie stick on solo hikes or use it in my "studio" to create my own vlogs. Sometimes I just use it with my phone for the additional light on top that has a low, medium, and high setting!

This thing is also sturdy too with great material and collapses to be very compact. I highly recommend this as your go-to selfie stick for all occasions. Way to go Mpow!

Vproof Selfie Stick Bluetooth, Lightweight Aluminum All in One Extendable Selfie Sticks Compact Design for iPhone 11 Pro Max/11 Pro/11/XS/XS Max/XR/X/8/8 Plus/7/6s/6, Galaxy S10/S9/S8/S7/S6/Note, More Review:

An awesome product with very light on weight. I am usually a photographer and travel a lot. And being a photographer I can only click pictures of the beautiful places and people but sometimes I do come across those places where I want to be a part of the picture. And that's where I use this selfie stick. It is very easy to use. The remote button access makes thing much more easier. Likewise, the stand that can be made with this selfie stick is another level. It lets me make my phone stand in a far distance and get a better view of the environment and with the help of the button its easier to click a picture. It is very smooth as well. Very easy to bring it to a certain height and than again bring it down to its actual height. It is tall as well. Not only this, the grip to the phone is fantastic. It doesn't fall at all neither it becomes loose or shaky. Overall, I really liked this product. I haven't seen any flaws so far. But if I see any in future than I will definitely update it. Recommended!

Yoozon Selfie Stick Tripod Bluetooth, Extendable Phone Tripod Selfie Stick with Wireless Remote Shutter for iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max/Xs MAX/XR/XS/X, Galaxy Note 10/Note 10 Plus/S9, Huawei and More Review:

If you throw away the box you loose the instructions on how to pair your phone Bluetooth to the Tripod Camera Key button
USER GUIDE: First Step: Bluetooth pairing
Touch & hold the camera key (this is the little black button unit that slides in and out of the tripod) for 3 seconds until its blue light flashes (evidence the Bluetooth is on). If you use the iPhone like I, go to Settings, Bluetooth and look for the "YOOZON S10" and choose to connect/pair it. If the pairing is successful the blue light will remain on. If you want to shut off the YOOZON camera key button, just hold it down for three seconds until the blue light turns off.
Don't forget you can remove the camera key button unit from the tripod... it slides up and out from the base.
You need to charge the camera key button for it to work initially and whenever it wears down. The company provides the connection cord. Store it in a handy and memorable location.
The volume button on your mobile phone acts as the "shutter" button, meaning you can press the volume button on the phone to take a photo OR you can use the wonderful remote button attached to, but removable from the tripod.
