Please Note: I was given this product in return for a genuine and impartial review.
Comes in a good size box for the product (Frustration free packaging), the design is basic, and to the point, you have a picture of the octopus tripod on the front. And on the back pictures of the contents, I was surprised not to see any instructions but to be fair it is quite simple to put together, and for me, I never read instructions unless I’m stuck!
What’s in the Box:
- One Bolt
- Two Tripod Adapters
- One Cell Phone Holder
- One Flexible Tripod Octopus
- One Rhodesy lintfree cloth (with Rhodesy printed on the cloth)
What do you get for your money?
The Octopus Tripod itself feels well made and is very flexible and bendy which of cause is what you want from an octopus stand! It’s lightweight so easy to take with you everywhere you go. With the Octopus tripod you can set it up anywhere, the adjustable spherical head has a 360-degree rotation which allows the smartphones, cameras to adjust it to the perfect position. You can wrap the flexible tripod legs around a pole, lamp, tree and pretty much anything and it will hold securely to it. It is also ideal for watching movies or youtube videos on your phone.
The cradle that holds your phone nice and securely. However, that said I’m not sure how long this will last as it’s spring-loaded and this is okay for phones but will struggle if you have a wide case on them. I have used this with my iPhone XR, and iPhone 8, both have Griffin survivors cases, and this works well with the iPhone 8, it does struggle to fit the iPhone XR with the survivor case, fits fine without the case though.
Interestingly there is no mention of how long you get for the warranty which I never spotted before writing this review.
- Very flexible
- Universal Fit
- Adjustable spherical head 360 Degree Rotation
The Rhodesy octopus tripod is an excellent product if your purchasing to use with a phone just make sure if you have a thick case that you check the measurements, the product is built to a high standard, and I have had no problems when using it with my iPhone 8.
The only issue and it is not with the product is the fact there is nothing to reference how long the warranty is with the product which is a poor advertisement in my opinion. If you are going to buy this product in my view, you need to know how long the return period is for.
Due to the unknown warranty period, I have deducted 1 star under the features in the author’s score breakdown.
Definitely gets my approval 😊
