received the Kiwii Selfie Stick as a promotional item for an honest review. A selfie stick has always seemed like a ridiculous item to me and i've passed on getting one for that sole reason. I don't do a lot of selfies - but that's mostly because - i can't take good ones. I always look weird and never can get the angle correct. The Kiwii Selfie stick solves all those problems and more that the first generations of selfie sticks had. The item came quickly from Kiwii. Mine is black, around 8" long when not extended. I've tried it with both a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a Note 5. The phone holder extended sufficiently for each phone to fit in the cradle quite securely. Only work to do upon opening was to attach the string handle. no batteries or blue-tooth pairing to do here - just connect your phone w/the 3.5mm cord attached. You will never run out of battery power with this selfie stick from Kiwii as you use your phone's power to operate the shutter button on the handle. The handle is covered in ribbed black soft to the touch rubber - affording a secure grip! The Kiwii selfie stick extends to about 2.5' long, which is a perfect length for selfie's. I loved that the extendable telescoping segments were creased on 1 side to add a TON of additional rigidity to the Kiwii selfie stick! this won't bend or break too easily - unlike those cheap transistor radio and walkie talkie handles from the 70's and 80's. Long & short - if you are looking for a selfie stick - THIS IS THE ONE TO GET: KIWII SELFIE-STICK/MONOPOD!! plus you gotta love that the best desgined Selfie-stick on the market is priced better than the other worse models on the market!!
