Product Review : Hoteon Mobilife Bluetooth Selfie Stick

No More Balancing, Crouching, Stretching, Or Racing Back To Beat The Camera Timer!

The last year and a half has seen a boom in the use of the internet and gadgets for communication. Because we are unable to meet colleagues, friends, and family physically, we have been using our phones like never before to keep in touch. Video calls are extremely common, be it for work or to connect with our loved ones. Surprisingly my parents haven’t really picked up on this trend except to video call me on WhatsApp for a few minutes.  So when my cousin recently turned 60 (which by the way is a big milestone and celebrated in South Indian culture), the family decided to shoot videos wishing him and put it together as a surprise for him. We also arranged for a Zoom call on the birthday itself to wish him.

While virtually guiding my parents on how to set up the camera for the video shoot and Zoom call, I realized that there was a problem in fixing the camera so that they could shoot comfortably and without the fear of it falling down. I myself have faced this when my husband and I have wanted to have a proper picture of the both of us and we don’t have anyone else around to click the picture for us. So I did some research and came across the Hoteon Mobilife Selfie Stick on Amazon.in. 

The Hoteon Mobilife Bluetooth Extendable Selfie Stick is a collapsible stick with a built-in tripod and a bluetooth clicker.  It is an amazing product and is pocket-friendly – both in terms of the price and the size.

Here is what I liked about the product

  1. It is a single product with multiple functions – a selfie stick, tripod & a blue tooth clicker.
  2. It is collapsible & lightweight.  I can easily carry it around in my purse or even pocket if I want to use it when I travel. When closed, it fits nicely into your palm.
  3. It is easy to set up. There is no need to assemble the product as it is one single piece. The bluetooth clicker is obviously detachable and you can pair it to your phone within seconds when using it for the first time. Apart from that, mounting the camera is also quite easy and takes only 2-3 seconds to pull the slot and fix the camera. When you want to use the tripod function, you just need to unfold the legs…also done in a couple of seconds.
  4. You can adjust the height of the stick to suit your requirement. The basic height is about 10 inches and it can be extended to approximately 2 feet. This versatile height adjustment along with the rotatability of the camera slot makes it good for shooting videos from different angles, handling video calls, live broadcasting or just taking pictures.

I found the stick and the tripod to be quite sturdy and stable, despite being lightweight. I have used it for video calls – both with friends & for work. Earlier I had to carry my laptop if I wanted to be hands-free during the call and didn’t want to risk balancing the phone against any other object.  The Hoteon Mobilife Bluetooth Extendable Selfie Stick now gives me the freedom to set up anywhere in no time – I can now take meetings in the lawn and enjoy the fresh air & sunshine at the same time! Or cook in the kitchen while discussing the recipes with my besties.

Importantly, it is safe and easy to set up & use for people like my parents who are not so savvy with gadgets. They now can be comfortably part of calls on Zoom and feel connected with the family even if they are unable to meet.

It is an ideal product for people who love to travel light and also like to click countless selfies. It also will be a big help for video bloggers, influencers, students, and teachers.

Overall I am very happy with the product and the amazing features available for the price point. I plan to now buy another for my parents as my testing of the product has been a success!

    1. I probably take one of the worst selfies. That is why this is such a blessing. I can easily carry it and set it up anywhere and take a pic peacefully with the Bluetooth clicker.

  3. Thanks for the review. I was looking for a selfie and tripod stick for y mobile as well as the camera. I will check if they have something for both of the purpose. The price is reasonable too.

    1. This just supports mobile phone and is too lightweight to take on a camera. But I did see many other sturdier ones….you can buy a clicker separately too in that case.

  4. It’s a useful product for us, the bloggers especially. Nowadays for online classes, virtual meets, also we need such accessories. The bonus is that we’ll get it at such an affordable price.

  6. This comes as a helpful post at the right time. I’ve been looking for a selfie stick and wanted someone to share an honest review. Shortlisted this one for my personal use.

  7. Thanks for sharing the review, Vasumathi. I was looking for something like this. It is more a stand rather than a selfie stick, isn’t it? It is so reasonable as well. I do have two already but this looks good for selfie videos. I will surely check it out. And yes, the 60th birthday in Andhra is a big deal. We have a huge function and its known as Shashtipoorthi.

  8. I am planning to buy a selfie stick and here comes your post. Will definitely check out the products you mentioned.

  9. I’m a photo a addicted person, I love to capture memories in through camera 📷 or mobile… This tripod stick is very useful for me…. And the price is also reasonable…

  10. I have a tripod that is for DLSR and making phone set on it also good but it is so huge that I need to drag it and adjust it each time. This stick looks so short and great for table top for sessions, adding it to my cart soon.

  11. I’m always on the lookout for better phone stands ,,, I have come to a point where i somehow break them everytime i get a new one ….so its a nice read
