CELFIE Stick Bluetooth Extendable Selfie Stick Review

I've heard about selfie sticks before and I've always wanted to have one. Why? Because when we go on trips, it's hard to take a photo of me and my family and if we do have one, we have to ask other people to do it for us. It is a bit of a hassle so a selfie stick was always on my list of "to buy" gadget accessory.

When I was chosen to try the Celfie Stick, I was super excited because for me, it was like a dream come true. LOL. Call me shallow but I admit, for this matter, it's true. :)
The Celfie Stick contained the selfie stick, the plastic phone holder, a USB charging cable and an orange adapter for smaller phones.
My sister and I had fun while taking our selfies, after doing the Insanity workout, with the Celfie Stick at the gym. Here are my thoughts about the Celfie Stick:

The Celfie Stick's handle/stick has the shutter button on the handle, a pink rubberized grip to easily hold Celfie Stick while using it, an on/off switch at the bottom and the USB port to charge the Celfie Stick.

When pairing, there's a blue light which flashes at the bottom of the Celfie Stick. Most of the time, my phone detects the Celfie Stick and connects automatically via bluetooth but at times, I have to do it several times before my phone detects the Celfie Stick. Pairing doesn't need any code for me but per the instructions, if it asks for a code, 0000 is the code.

The cellphone holder is attached to the end of the Celfie Stick. It effectively grips my phone without the danger of my phone (which is a Moto G) and casing included, slipping from the cellphone holder. The cellphone holder is adjustable so that's nice too.

The Celfie stick measures 9 inches when it's not extended and it can extend up to approximately 37 inches. Even though it's extended, the Celfie Stick can still hold the weight of my cellphone + casing effectively. It can be quite heavy during extended use but a few photos is fine.

The shutter button on the Celfie Stick takes a 1 to 2 second lag when I press it before it takes a photo. The camera mode of my phone should be turned on too before the camera shutter works. The next minor flaw I've noticed is that the pink rubber grip disaligns with the shutter button when the Celfie Stick is fully extended. That might be because of the weight of the phone suspended up in the air so the rubber grip's alignment with the button goes off. I can however, adjust it again by rotating the pink rubber grip a bit and it's fine again.

All in all, I like the Celfie stick and I like how handy it is. The stick is adjustable and I can just put it in my bag if it's not fully extended. I wouldn't have to worry about a separate camera remote control because the shutter button is already on the Celfie Stick handle. Ever since I've used the Celfie Stick, I haven't had the need to charge it yet so that's another plus.
