GRIPS & STABLE, BUT DIDN'T LAST LONG
Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2019
14 MONTH UPDATE: It broke after very little use over the past year. One of the legs developed a cracked ball. Was a five star review, now three. Sorry Joby.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Just as described, it is stable when using as a tripod and also grips when wrapping the legs around something. Tips for Google Pixel XL users: turn off Active Edge before using it as the clamp tends to activate it. Also, for Pixel XL, you'll need to attach the clamp under the the volume control to keep it from adjusting your volume. If you slide it all the way to the bottom of the volume you'll still be able to use the phone camera's menu to change between camera, video, etc.
To JOBY, a requested improvement: please add a hot shoe and/or some other enhancement to be able to clip an external mic to the clamp.
