Selfie sticks are all the rage right now! Everywhere you look on social media, people are using them everyday. There's even silly cases of people posing with fake selfie sticks, using broom handles and pipes and other random objects. I'm not huge on taking photos of myself, but I was thrilled when I was offered to review this bluetooth selfie stick by Liansing. I'm starting to do a lot of reviews lately, and this is definitely going to make my photo shoots a lot easier from now on!
The selfie stick is very small and compact, measuring only 7.2" folded. It can easily fit in a purse, fanny pack or even your pocket if you wear cargo pants or have deep pockets without taking up too much room. When needed, it can extend up to 31.5 inches and you can get some really far shots with it! The stick came with a USB charging cable, a waterproof storage bag, a wrist strap and a very simple, easy to follow instruction manual.
To charge, you simply plug the USB cord into the base of your selfie stick and then plug the USB end into your computer or any other USB charging station. While charging, a red light comes on. I was also able to plug it into my phone charger and it fit perfect as well, which is awesome for when you're not near a computer but still have your phone charger! The selfie stick charged very quickly, it seemed fully charged in less than 15 minutes.
The grip is rubberized and spring loaded and stretched to accommodate pretty much any phone size. It's actually a little strong and takes a little bit of practice to get your phone in there. Once your phones in though, it's very secure and in no danger of falling out while you're moving around. The grip also swivels to any direction you may need it and locks in that position with a screw type locking mechanism. You can pretty much get any angle you desire with this selfie stick!
Connecting my phone to it was a breeze! I simply pressed the button to turn the stick on. It blinked while it was searching for my phone. On my phone, I did a device search in my bluetooth menu, and it found it within just a few seconds and had no problems connecting. I put my phone in the clamp and simply pressed the camera button on the stick to start taking pictures! It was so easy!!The grip is slightly rubberized and easily stays in your grasp without getting sweaty and slipping. This stick is very sturdy and easy to take steady pictures without shaking or blurring.
I am very impressed with how versatile this stick is, you can get pretty much any angle or distance you may desire while still staying nice and compact. It's so easy to use that I got how to use it within seconds even though I don't have much practice with selfie sticks!
