Hi all. Today I’ll tell you about per­haps the most pop­u­lar and high-qual­i­ty smart­phone tri­pod from Xiao­mi, con­tain­ing a self­ie stick and a Blue­tooth but­ton. Most Chi­nese hold­ers don’t live long. In tripods, due to the fragili­ty of the struc­ture, the leg con­stant­ly falls off or some oth­er ele­ment fails. It would seem that the design is sim­ple, but there is some­thing to break. That is why, I decid­ed to buy myself a good tri­pod for installing a smart­phone as a com­put­er web­cam, and of course the choice fell on Xiao­mi.

The device is deliv­ered in a small card­board box with col­or­ful print­ing and the Mi cor­po­rate logo, which indi­cates a direct belong­ing to Xiao­mi, and they obvi­ous­ly do not want to risk their “bro­ken legs” rep­u­ta­tion in such a mass prod­uct. On the front is an image of the device itself. On the side are the main spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the Blue­tooth but­ton and the weight of the device. There are also images demon­strat­ing the oper­a­tion of the tri­pod ele­ments.


The device itself is made of very good qual­i­ty dense ABS plas­tic. All ele­ments are tight­ly fit­ted and do not dan­gle. On top is a rub­ber­ized smart­phone hold­er. It can rotate 360 ​​degrees. Every 45 degrees, they peel off and fix the smart­phone in the desired posi­tion.

In the plane, the hold­er can also be adjust­ed. It has a fold­ing design, due to which in one direc­tion the smart­phone can be com­plete­ly brought clos­er to the body of the tri­pod, and in the oth­er direc­tion it can be turned only 30 degrees.

This is not a design lim­i­ta­tion and is intend­ed to ensure that the smart­phone does not out­weigh and knock over the tri­pod. On the oth­er hand, no one both­ers to install the smart­phone on the oth­er side and point the cam­eras down if nec­es­sary. Sur­pris­ing­ly, you can catch a posi­tion in which the smart­phone will not out­weigh and the tri­pod can be used as a full-fledged tri­pod.

The tripod’s legs have rub­ber tips and pro­vide good sta­bil­i­ty on most sur­faces. The legs are equipped with mag­nets that fix them in the fold­ed posi­tion when using the device as a self­ie stick.

Dimensions and height

The tele­scop­ic tube has three parts and in the ful­ly unfold­ed posi­tion, the tri­pod mount­ed on the sur­face has a height of 59 cen­time­ters. In the ful­ly fold­ed state of the tele­scop­ic tube, the tri­pod has a height of 25.5 cen­time­ters.

As for the size of the self­ie stick, with the tele­scop­ic tube fold­ed, it is 27 cen­time­ters. With the tele­scop­ic tube ful­ly extend­ed, the length is 64.5 cen­time­ters.

bluetooth button

Under the hold­er is an ele­ment of mold­ed rub­ber, which hous­es the Blue­tooth but­ton with the Mi logo. The but­ton and logo have a nice blue back­light. I am glad that the device does not work from a bat­tery, but from a bat­tery that is charged via a microUSB con­nec­tor.

Sum­ming up, I can say that the tri­pod is real­ly made very sound­ly and, despite the large num­ber of mov­ing ele­ments, it is much supe­ri­or in qual­i­ty to its name­less Chi­nese com­peti­tors. An undoubt­ed advan­tage is its com­pact­ness, reli­a­bil­i­ty and knock­down of the design. Thanks to the mag­nets, noth­ing dan­gles, while you can quick­ly bring the tri­pod into posi­tion. It is dif­fi­cult to sin­gle out any dis­ad­van­tages, since this is per­haps the best tri­pod that com­bines a self­ie stick that can only be found on the mar­ket in terms of price and qual­i­ty. What do you think about this device? Per­haps for some­one this tri­pod absurd­ly broke or came with a mar­riage. Write about your oper­at­ing expe­ri­ence in the com­ments. That’s all. Thank you all for your atten­tion. Bye.
