Sometimes you want to use your iPhone as a screen, for example to watch an episode on Netflix or a movie and also have your hands free. For this you need a telephone stand or tripod. And there are many on the market. But which one is the best and not too expensive?
Why a tripod?
Unlike a regular phone holder, a tripod stands always stable and does not wobble. This is because of the three points on which the tripod rests on the ground or other surface. A very nice tripod with flexible legs, so you can attach your phone to any tube or other supporting structure.
Do you make a lot of dance videos or other recordings where your whole body is in the picture? Then you should go for a tripod that is man-sized.
Or would you prefer a small, handy tripod? You can then turn your phone into a GoPro-like action camera. Very handy if you want to take a spectacular selfie. Why not combine everything at once? You achieve that with a tripod with flexible arms.
