    Worst product ever!!! The Remote Control NEVER Sync's!!!

    Worst product ever!!! The Remote Control NEVER Sync's!!! My sister and I both purchased and we're super lucky if and when it ever sync's up with our apple phones. IT WORKS 1 OUT OF EVERY 1,000 TRYS TO CONNECT. Horrible

    Unable to pair

    Despite following the instructions as given in the manual, the shutter doesn't pair despite being in the On position and next to the mobile phone. Waste of my 50 dollars. Didn't expect this from Apple.

    Don't purchase

    A) Does not tilt. B) The bottom tripod isn't heavy enough to stand on its own. You could buy an ankle weight to wrap around it for it to stand but I wouldn't want to haul around all that. C) Works great as a selfie stick, love the convenience of the remote but you can get a selfie stick for a lot less elsewhere.

    Must Have Accessory

    I absolutely love this product. It is so versatile and fun to use. I had this product for 3 months and use it everyday and have had no problems.

    Poor Quality - Feels Cheap

    I liked the option of having a mini tripod and a selfie stick all in one. You have to put this system together when you open the box. Everything has the feel of cheap plastic. I tried to get the tripod legs to level out and it felt like I was going to break them off. The spring loaded phone holder does not feel like it holds the phone securely enough for my comfort. It is a great idea, but with poor components. This thing could be great if it was made out of higher quality components. As is, it isn't worthy of its price and holding my $900 iPhone.

    Don't worthy of its price

    Very basic monopod with bluetooth remote control. All parts fit each other well, but grip feels very flimsy and when you try to use it as a stand your precious phone in balance from falling on the ground in this case.
    In general I'm satisfied using this stick but I won't recommend it to others.

    Inadequate

    I bought this stick with pretty high expectations but have been let down here. The transition between selfie stick and stand is not smooth plus the material it's been made of feels fragile.

    Expected MUCH better

    Thought I'd be getting a premium selfie stick but that was definitely NOT the case. The material used feels like relatively cheap plastic and it is not easy to switch between Selfie Stick and Tripod mode as mentioned by another reviewer.

    Bought Despite Mixed Reviews

    I was hesitant to purchase this stand biased on the reviews but found it to be versatile enough at an Apple workshop that I bought it anyways. My issues started when I had trouble to getting the instructions out the box-within-the-the-box. However, I was able to assemble it easily without directions. I'm not sure what problems the other people who reviewed this had but they seem to have been corrected.

    I left off a star because of the difficultly in sync'ing the Bluetooth remote shutter to my iPhone. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. A flashing light lets you know if have a connection. I have not tried taking the remote and iPhone into Apple for support so this could be a problem on my end.

    It collapses into a lightweight package that I found easy and quick to "unfold." I thought it was a decent value for the money and would buy again or give as a gift.

    Missing parts 2x

    Bought this as a Christmas present. When we opened box, parts were missing. We took it back to apple and got a new box with all the parts. However the bulb thing was made to big so it couldn't assemble. We ended up just getting money back.

    Not convenient to use, construction not impressive

    I was really excited when I bought this product. I thought the combination of a tabletop tripod (with extension arm) and wireless shutter trigger in a really compact form factor made for a must-have product for any iPhone photo enthusiast. The packaging was good quality and the instruction manual was pretty easy to go through. But there are a lot of cons for this product that make me consider returning it:

    1. Poor design: Going from a table top tripod to an extend tripod is not a quick plug and twist operation. It requires un-screwing, attaching extension arm and re-screwing. Not a very smart design, and would take at least a few minutes each time.
    2. In the table top format it was really challenging to fix the phone (iPhone 6) vertically. Took a lot of twisting and adjustment for the ball head to allow this. And after setting it up the tripod looked quite unsteady in this setup, about to topple over in the slightest push/wind.
    3. Overall build quality is quite plasticky, and this contributes to the unsteadiness.

    Recommendation to improve design:
    1. An easier and quicker way to go from tabletop to extended selfie form.
    2. A better ball head mechanism to allow fixing the phone vertically.
