You can skip to the end of the review, and this is what it will read: Buy this selfie stick… That’s really all there is to it!
The box arrived and it’s actually kind of plain looking. Very little to it. Seems Taotronics have opted to save waste by not producing an oversized box. Very cool Taotronics! Here’s where to find it: Product Link
When you take the selfie stick out, it’s already folded up. The first thing you notice is that it’s small. Way smaller than some of others out on the market. It’s actually small enough to put in your pocket, I usually carry it around in the my jacket pocket. It measures about 17cm and about 24cm with the mobile holder part folded out.
It really is easy to use. You simply, take your phone, place it in the holder and then plug in the 3.5mm cable into your headphone port. The Cable provided is linked ot the little red button the handle. This means you don’t need a Bluetooth dongle, which should save your battery a little.
The materials are great, the handle although grippy has a smooth finish to it. It is a good weight as well, not heavy at all. You could happily carry this around all day long without any issues, and you wouldn’t need to have an arm like Matthias Schlitte (he’s an arm wrestling champion… just in case you’re wondering).
There is a hinge at the top at the base of the mobile holder so you can adjust the angle of the phone. It’s a good strong hinge. I have taken this on my road trips, and on vacation, it has done the job and stood up to the (sometimes) brutal punishment.
In conclusion, this is a great selfie stick, small and compact. Buy this selfie stick… Buy it, well, what are you waiting for?
