Product Review: SelfiePod Selfie Stick

SmarterTravel

What Is it: BoxWave’s SelfiePod, a photo assistant device that lets you take photos from far away.

Pros:

  • Easy to use—just clip your phone on it, set the timer, and take your photo
  • Telescoping arm extends from 7 inches to 41 inches
  • Works with most smartphones, including iPhones and Samsungs
  • Rotates 360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically for awesome photo angles
  • No battery required

Cons:

  • Even when folded down to carrying size, the SelfiePod will take up a lot of room in your bag
  • Using a selfie stick will attract a lot of attention from bystanders when taking photos

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. Never have to bother a stranger to take your photo again, or have the photographer be left out of a group shot
  • Value: 6/10. The SelfiePod was on sale for $16.95 (originally $29.95) on SelfiePod at the time of publication
  • Durability: 8/10. The SelfiePod is well-made and seems much more durable than some of the cheaper selfie sticks
  • Cool Factor: 5/10. The pictures that come from using a SelfiePod will be cool, but it’s tough to look suave while actually using one
  • Final Verdict: If you love selfies and aren’t self conscious, the SelfiePod is a great picture taking tool
