      This works great on my iPhone 4s and it fits it securely while it is in an Otterbox Defender Case. It attaches to any tripod 1/4-20 mount. I often use it with a mini folding backpacking tripod making it easy to put in a pocket and take with on my motorcycle. Since there are free apps for timed shutter release, I can now get easy self-pics without trying to balance the iPhone on a rock. Other free apps let you take time lapse movies which of course need a tripod mount if you want that sun up to sunset in 20 seconds kind of thing. This is not a secure enough grip to use it for motorsports, or mountain biking, but for fixed location shooting it works great and is fast to deploy. Folded, it isn't much bigger than a pack of gum and it is light. You can also use it to hold the phone to watch a movie. This item is also available with a compact tripod, but I already had a backpackers tripod available.

      Been using for about 6 months till last week. Shooting with IPhone 5 testing some apps for a class on mobile photography when it cracked. Luckily had headphones (used for remote) attached and caught IPhone by them as it hit table on the way to a tile floor.

      Joby has not been very easy to deal with to get replacement. If I even want one now.

      To bad since it did work well. Better than other options at the time. Time to look around again.

      Comments about Joby GripTight Mount for Smartphones:

      This is a spring loaded, very basic grip that screws to a basic 1/4 inch tripod adapter. But the grip OBVIOUSLY wasn't designed for today's smart phones. I have a medium sized phone and it stretches to fit it. If you stretch it to fit a + sized phone and it feels like it will break. It's eh.

              Comments about Joby GripTight Mount for Smartphones:

              I'm very happy with the small and lightweight yet sturdy construction. It fits my iPhone well and attaches easily to my tripod. I wouldn't recommend using it if you're going to be moving around a lot - for example if you attach a mount to a off-road vehicle and then attach your phone with this mount, you'll probably end up losing your phone. It's stable on a tripod, but there could be a possibility of falling out if you're doing crazy stunts with it.

                      I am very happy with this product and it will come in very handy for traveling light where I don't want to carry a separate camera as I always have my phone. It works great with the newest iPhone 6 as very adjustable. I like that you can fold it flat and attach to a keychain also to keep it more compact.

                      It was the perfect answer for my new IPhone 6, since I already owned a small Nikon table-top tripod and ball head. Thanks Joby.

The device weighs nothing and folds completely flat. The spring loaded fold out forks are very powerful and holds spartphones very securely. Highly recommended.

                              I am in corporate communications. Needed a simple solution for our team to shoot steady video with their iPhones (4 & 5). I paired this GripTight mount with a $ photo tripod, et voila! Mission accomplished. I put a small piece of velcro on the the Joby and another piece on the side of the tripod leg... and now our team members just pop in, grab the tripod and they're in business.

                                This has been perfect! I needed something I can mount my phone onto a tripod and this really did the trick. What I really like is that you can put several types of phones. You don't need a special case so even if you get a different phone in a year or two, you can still use this mount.

                                  Mounted this to my Redrock Micro cage to capture a second 'user generated' looking camera angle for a recent project. It mounted very easy and was exactly what I needed to do the job.

                                    I use this to mount my Samsung Galaxy S3 to a tripod. It works as advertised. Just a word of warning, I can't recall the exact model of phone I tried using, but this item can't spread far enough apart to mount anything much wider than an S3 or maybe S4. We tried mounting what I think was a Galaxy Note with a case on it, and it wouldn't go around it. Though we didn't take the case off of it, it looked like it may of worked if we took the case off of the Note. I'm not 100% positive that it will. But, anything like an S3, with a case on it, seems to work.

                                      This mount is so compact and easy to use. You can fold it up flat to fit on a keychain or in a pocket. Fits on any tripod. I actually took this one back to get the one that has a built in mini tripod, which was only $ more and it also folds flat. It's adjustable with a swivel head (insane) and it can mount horizontal or vertical. Will adjust to any phone size. Great to have even if you just want to watch videos, movies, or for FaceTime. Fabulous!
