Best Cell Phone Tripod Mount: Ulanzi ST-02S Review

The Ulanzi Aluminum Phone Mount is a solid and well-constructed tripod cell phone mount that is made of aluminum.

No Tight Springs!

The wide base makes it possible to accommodate phones with cases and there are no tight springs that might cause any damage to the phone. 

Most phone mounts use springs to hold your phone that are so tight that it requires alot of agility and finger strength. I cracked my screen protector trying install my phone. Yikes!

Fits Most Phones

This mount can fit several popular phone models, including the iPhone 12, 11, Pro Xs, Max 8, and Samsung S21, and is priced very affordably at under $20.

Overall, the Ulanzi phone mount is a great option for those looking for a durable and versatile solution.
