At first, I was a little excited to see the stylus/stand in my birchbox. But through my first trials with it, I was incredibly disappointed. Here were a couple things that I noticed:
1. The product itself is aesthetically very appealing and looks well made. However, the top black, plastic piece popped off almost immediately! It was barely set in, and I know that if I were to actually keep it on a key-chain, it would break quickly.
2. As a phone stand, I had to take off my camera case to use it because it couldn't grip my phone in a way that would hold it up. EVEN with the case off, I could barely touch the screen without the phone toppling over. Definitely a bummer.
3. Even with a Samsung Galaxy, the stylus barely registers on my screen. It's possible that there are other devices that it would make more sense to use on, but for me it is completely worthless to use.
The one thing that I could find myself using it for is to hold my phone up just enough to watch videos, but only if it's resting on a stable surface. And honestly, I have a computer for that.
I was very disappointed that this was the main item in my box this month. I would have rather had more samples that I could have used. It is possible that with a different phone, this could be helpful. But due to the quality, I would not recommend it to anyone.
