Sony Smartphone Tripod SPA-MK20M for Xperia Z1 Review

Be cautious when you are putting your phone inside camera holder, don’t end chipping your phone’s part. While putting Xperia Z1 make sure power button side is at the location where two sliders are present in camera holder.


  • Very Light Weight.
  • Easy to use, durable.
  • 100% Compatible with wide range of Xperia smartphones.
  • Universal camera holder can be used on wide varieties of mount.


  • Length of tripod legs is very small but still we are not considering it as a disadvantage.

    Heavily over priced, I just bought a similar un-branded one off of eBay for less than 2GBP.
