Best selfie sticks for iPhone and Android

Best selfie sticks for iPhone and Android
Selfie sticks are among the most controversial smartphone accessories of our times, and it seems that people either love, or despise them.

Perhaps it's not surprising that they are now banned from various places - including stadiums, museums, and Disney parks - as they've become a safety concern. Nevertheless, if you must have a selfie stick, you may was well go for the best ones.

We've spent some time in search of the best selfie sticks that are currently available to buy in the US, and we're presenting them in the list below (in no particular order, buy links included). All the selfie sticks seen here are compatible with pretty much any iPhone, or Android handset that you may have.

P.S.: Needless to say, if you want high-quality selfies, besides purchasing a selfie stick, you'll also need a smartphone with a good front-facing camera.

Why don't they just say "best selfie sticks"? Android and iOS make up about 95-96% of the global smartphone market. There's no need to specify OS compatibility here. A Windows Phone or something running a Blackberry OS is akin to a Bigfoot sighting.

Let’s get this out of the way up front: no one truly needs a selfie stick, and most have build quality that reflects their low prices. But if you feel you absolutely must have one, they can be somewhat useful. To find the best selfie stick, we put in 20 hours of research, brought in 22 testing models, and took dozens of selfies in various conditions.Additionally, it was one of the few we found that actually had some unique thought put into its design—by comparison, 11 other sticks ended up being identical copies of products that were either more expensive than the models we tested or that had significantly lower user ratings. It’s not a perfect tool, but it gets the job done for a low price.
