The Eocean Selfie is a stick and tripod of sorts. To be honest, I never thought I would add a selfie stick to a top picks post in my life.
But this is special, needing its own classification and contemplation.
It is a hybrid between a selfie-stick and a tripod. It folds to a height of 31.5cm for storage, or the perfect travel companion. At its longest extension, 100cm is no problem. Add that to your already-extended arms and you get one hell of a field of view.
The cell phone tripod adapter is removable, allowing it to fit any phone from 2.05 – 4.13″ – perfect for even the biggest iPhone.
The mount is secured via screws, not springs, which ensures a strong and secure grip.
Once your phone is secured, you have access to a 360° rotation. Great for panoramas or that video blog you’ve been meaning to do.
It can be a little unstable in high winds, so try to keep it as short as possible.
PS – it comes with a wireless remote control. What excellent value!
The Joby GripTight One Mount is a teeny-tiny tripod for the iPhone mount. Actually, it’s for any smart phone or device under 3.6″.
What this allows you to do is connect to any tripod that you already have.
It connects via the quick release plate, and basically, anything that has a 1/4″ screw mount.
It holds your cell phone in place via rubber phone grip pads using internal steel springs.
Basic and simple, but necessary.

- Weight: 11.6″
The UbeeSize Aluminium is a silver tripod, which sticks out from the many black tripods on the market. Unlike some of the other phone tripods here in our list, a cell phone tripod adapter comes with the tripod.
This iPhone mount will allow a device up to3.75″, allowing the securing of even the biggest iPhones or Android phones. Removing the mount reveals a 1/4″ screw, allowing you to attach high-quality mounts.
The three flexible legs can be adjusted individually, perfect for those uneven surfaces. They will go to a maximum height of 29.5cm, which is useful but not so tall that it will blow over.
Adjustments are made via a twistable plastic screw grip, which looks fancy. Along with the tripod, you get a carrying case and Bluetooth remote control. both are welcome when using this trendy camera tripod.

They are confident in their product, offering a 2-year money back guarantee. So if you don’t like all of the extra features, you could send it back.

The Joby GorillaPod Hybrid is, in our opinion, the best phone tripod out there. You can’t go wrong having Joby as manufacturer, nor with picking the GorillaPod range.
These flexible tripods are as versatile as they are lightweight.
Perfect for travel, this strong, durable, but portable tripod only uses the materials with the highest quality. It will work as well on the 1000th day as it did on the first. So much so, it comes with a one-year warranty.
The Hybrid version comes with a bubble spirit level and quick release plate. These ensure your Apple iPhone is always lined up and packed away in a jiffy.
You will need to invest in a separate iPhone tripod adapter though.
The 180° tilt and 360° pan allow you to get creative in your captures. Adjusting the GorrillaPod is simple and smooth, all done through a twisting know and locking wheel on the side of the head.
You’ll be using this to shoot time-lapses, or with a remote shutter for those adventure group shots.
