You can't use it as a tripod for a cell phone because when you position your cell phone to take a standard portrait photo or video, it is too top heavy. You can adjust the legs some to compensate for this but after just barely touching the side of the camera it was still enough to send it toppling over. If there is a slight wind or draft, I would not trust it. The legs should be much heavier than they are.
You also can't aim it straight down on a desk in tripod mode because the legs get in the way of the shot and there is only one spot (a groove) on the swivel that allows you point your cell phone. This would only work when taking photo's of very small items, like a coin, but you would still have to crop the image to remove the legs.
Also, that groove mentioned above is not cut right; it does not allow you to full rotate 90 degrees, it's always off by about 4 degrees meaning that you cant get your camera to line up for a perfectly straight landscape or portrait photo or video, it will always be a bit off, just enough to ruin the shot. You can try to adjust the legs some to compensate, but the problem with the legs is mentioned above.
The Groove is also stationary meaning that while you can rotate the cell phone, if you want to make use of the groove to shoot straight down, you have to use the groove and with that you have no choice but to accept the position of the groove relative to the legs, once again your shot is ruined.
So the only way this works is when using the legs to wrap around something, but they are so short, this can only be done with the smallest of stationary items. I could engineer a better design than this in a couple of hours.
Lastly. The remote does not work, nor are there instructions. There is a small FAQ's that comes with the tripod addressing basic things that no one needs help with but it doesn't even mention the remote.
