The M2 mobile phone stand by Elago Design is the perfect solution for displaying your wonderful iPhone (or other mobile phone/device). Made from a solid piece of aluminum, you can easily set your device into the stand for display and use. It’s lightweight and portable. Guess what else? It’s only $25! Check out our full review!
Right when I took the M2 out of its packaging, I knew I would love using it. I’ve tried a number of different docking stations for the iPhone 4, and they all had their problems. The M2 stand is just what I was looking for. I wish I knew about the M2 years ago!
First, let’s talk about the design. The stand has a nice solid aluminum construction. The back of the stand has a few cutouts for cable management. You can easily feed your 30-pin connector through the back of the stand, so that you can sync and charge an iPhone. The feet of the stand (that actually hold your device into the stand) have some small cutouts for the iPhone’s microphone and speaker. There are also some rubber feet to keep your device from rubbing against the aluminum. The bottom of the stand has some rubber rails to keep the stand up and off of your desk, and it also keeps the stand from moving around. The overall design of the M2 will fit in with anything else that you have on your desk (especially with an iMac). The space in-between the 2 fit is just enough so that you can plug in your 30-pin cable into an iPhone.
The best second best part about the stand is the angle at which it props your device up at. It’s at the perfect viewing angle when you’re sitting at your desk working on something. So, for instance, if you receive a text message or a call, you can easily tap on your iPhone’s screen without having to take it off of the stand. The stand is sturdy enough so that you won’t have to worry about the stand falling over. A number of the different docking stations that I’ve been looking at will stand the iPhone straight up, so you aren’t able to use the phone while it’s docked. This stand is just perfect.
Actually, scratch that. The BEST part about this stand is its price! It’s priced at just $25, which is an amazing deal. When first staring at the stand, you’d think that something like this would cost twice as much ($50 range), but it’s most definitely not. The $25 price tag is perfect for anyone to afford.
Out of all of the products that I’ve ever been sent (believe it or not), this is my favorite. Again, once I immediately took the stand out of its box, I knew I was going to love the stand. It’s just perfect. After coming home from wherever I may have been, I can simply put my iPhone into the stand, plug it in, and get on with whatever I have planned. The stand looks great, and it really is the best accessory for an iPhone or any mobile phone. This would be a great gift for the upcoming holiday season!
