When I received the Xenvo, I was so impressed by it's sturdiness, weight and it's size. And it is what I imagined how it would look like the first time that I would buy one. The three pics that I uploaded is how I happened upon a Tri Pod unit ever in the first place. I was in CVS and I saw this little Tri-pod and it cost me about $7.00 and change for it. I used it at a Fireworks Display and wrapped the legs around a railing along the Boardwalk. The first pic shows what happened to it. The phone holding Clamp fell off with my phone attached to it, falling almost 20 ft. into the sand below almost damaging my phone. (So much for a tri-pod). It was embarrassing that I had to jump the railing all the way down to rescue my phone, (A Galaxy S9+). So now I have this Xenvo Tri Pod. The second photo shows it's size in comparison. So it's proven that you get what you pay for. Re-Inventing the wheel? I think that this $7.00 tri-pod was a spinoff from the Xenvo because it looks and feels of some time and effort to it's quality. The Third pic has the Xenvo standing alone Proud and I am pleased with it's quality. I can also accomplish much more with this unit and confident that I won't be rescuing my phone anymore. 5 Stars Man!.If you haven't gotten one yet, I would highly advise it!
