Do you love to take selfies? I’m not necessarily a huge fan of being in pictures at all, but obviously given my profession as a blogger, I take A LOT of pictures, and have to be in many of them! When I do take selfies, though, I definitely like to include others. Even having long arms, though, that definitely isn’t an easy feat! That’s why I was excited to review a Selfie Stick from Mpow!
Disclosure: I received the product mentioned to facilitate my selfie stick review. Regardless, all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
The Mpow® iSnap X One-piece U-Shape Self-portrait Monopod Extendable Selfie Stick with built-in Bluetooth Remote Shutter is a tiny selfie stick that can be only 7″ in length, so it is easy to carry around. It can even be put in your pocket! It connects to your device via bluetooth pairing and then pushing the button for snapping the picture.
The Mpow Selfie Stick features a u-shape clamp, which is not only great for holding the phone, but it allows it to fold up over the stick itself, which helps keep the size small when not in use. The clamp really holds the phone securely. I never had any worries that my phone would slip or fall out. Plus, with the opening of the u shape I also don’t have to worry about it sitting right on my power button, which is on the side of my phone.
The downfall, it doesn’t work with my Lumia. No matter how hard I try I cannot get it to work. It does mention that it’s capatable with iOS and Android, but the Lumia is a Windows phone, so I’m not sure if that is the problem. Sometimes it will say it connects, but as soon as I push the button it starts blinking and is disconnected again. Or other times it won’t connect at all. So, I tried the bluetooth function with my husband’s Android phone, and it worked perfectly!
Overall, although I am disappointed I can’t use the bluetooth feature with my Windows phone, I still think it’s a great selfie stick. I just opt to set the timer instead, which works out nicely! I can still snap fun pictures like this one of my cuddle bug and me!
It packs up really small, holds the phone nicely, has a wrist strap for extra caution, and it looks sharp, too! I haven’t had to charge it since I initially charged it when I received it, so it definitely keeps a great charge, too! Plus I love that it not only folds up small, but the length can be adjusted as well! The Mpow selfie stick can be purchased on Amazon.

I really like that it can fit into your pocket easily! That’s a little troubling that it doesn’t work well with your Lumia. Hopefully, it’ll be upgraded or improved in the future to include it. So far, the Mpow Selfie Stick looks great though! I’m glad that the phone doesn’t fall off too!

I think I could have some fun with one of these. I like that it folds up so small too. It makes it easier to carry that way when I am not using it.
Yes, exactly! I love how portable it is!

This selfie stick looks very useful. Thanks for sharing!
for all the times I’ve seen ppl taking selfies, I haven’t yet seen anyone using one of these sticks. I do say, you can’t even tell it is a selfie! I would want one but not want to use it out where everyone is walking around!!
