1. Aduro Adjustable Universal Gooseneck Smartphone Stand
This Aduro Smartphone Stand is easy to use and carry wherever you go. A 360 degree rotating device, the holder is compatible with most smartphones and cameras. The size of the bendable gooseneck — 21 inches — makes the device portable and flexible to take anywhere. The clamp is also sturdy enough to secure your phone on any 3-inch thick surface while you take photos, record a video, or just need a convenient way to have your phone by your side and within eyesight.
2. B-Land Cell Phone Holder
The B-Land Phone Holder is so flexible to use, you’re going to want to take it everywhere.
With a 360 degree rotating holder, adjustable angles and light, this phone holder will make you feel like a real blogger. The phone holder’s ring light has a setting of 10 adjustable brightness levels — for that flawless, glowing look — and three different colors of LED light, which gives you plenty of different selfie options to take and choose from. It’s also a universal phone holder and comes with a sturdy, metal clip, which you can use to clip on most tables and desks of different thicknesses.
3. KobraTech Cell Phone Tripod Stand
This KobraTech Mini Cell-Phone Tripod comes with a Bluetooth remote control you can use to take photos or record from up to 30 feet away.
The flexible legs of the tripod allow you to use the device without needing a flat surface — just wrap the legs around a chair, tree and more. But it’s the TriFlex design of the legs and their adjust-ability that makes this item so easy to use and to accommodate your preferred way to use your phone. The stand is just not for your phone, either. It’s also used as a GoPro adapter mount and as a tablet stand. You literally have all your equipment for a photoshoot in one.
