Get it right.
Terrible smartphone pro tip: An open carton of eggs is perfect for propping up your phone to display a recipe or watch a TV show while you’re cooking in the morning. It’ll also give you salmonella!
Legitimate smartphone pro tip: Any remotely natural angle to hold your phone for a FaceTime call delivers a painfully unflattering camera angle for your face. Point down, not up! (Yes your arm will get tired.)
Smartphone pro tip you already know: Dropping your phone on your face in beds hurts more than you’d think.
Look, as sleek and stylish as modern phones are, they are absolutely terrible when it comes to being propped up in one place.
That silky smooth metal edge is wonderful for sliding effortlessly in and out of our pockets, but not so great for leaning on the windowsill while you wash dishes.
Your probably mind-blowingly good camera can take shots we wouldn’t have dreamed could come out of a phone ten years ago, but a cheap point-and-shoot with a tripod is going to be about 1000x more functional when it comes to actually pointing at something without you holding it.
So your video shots are suffering. Your digital streaming is more annoying than it needs to be. And it’s only a matter of time before you break your phone trying to balance it on a stack of books to line up your camera just right.
The solution is right here. These adjustable mounts are about as adjustable as they can be, with the long part letting you get your phone right where you want it and the swiveling end letting you get it pointed just right.
Whether you’re watching or filming or both, this is the move. Plus you’ll get two!
