Update (7/1 3:50pm): Amazon has discounted the Mpow Selfie Stick even further. It’s now just $10.50 Prime shipped.
Mpow gave me their iStick Selfie stick last month and I’ve used it with a number of phones big and small. On the small side, I’ve tried the Moto E and iPhone 4s without a case. But the stick expands so big that it can take small tablets like the Samsung Mega. It is strong enough to hold an iPhone 6 with a big battery case (see image, top). The fit is tight and it can be swung around pretty violently without losing its grip on your device.
More importantly, it is designed so that when the phone isn’t attached, it can flip around and fit in your pocket when the telescoping arm is closed (so maybe you CAN sneak it into Disney World!). This is the big differentiator.
The Bluetooth connectivity is easy to set up on both iOS and Android and it easily connects to multiple devices. Once connected, a thumb push on the button snaps a picture using the phone’s native camera or 3rd party camera app.
The iStick includes a wrist strap to help prevent droppage and has 3 different color microUSB charging ports if you want to differentiate.
The only downside? It is a selfie stick. Call it a Mono-pod if you can’t bear it.
Today only, Amazon’s Gold Box has the iStick for $13.99 Prime shipped which is such a good deal, you’ll want to buy one for everyone you know that wants to take selfies.

Also, iPad Air 2 16GB Wi-Fi in silver or gold will be on sale for $399. An additional 10% discount via Target’s Cartwheel app brings the price down even further to $359.10, which is nearly $140 below MSRP.
