I have to lead this review with a word of caution, if you’re afraid of spiders you won’t be interested in this product for sure but this is the perfect time to post this review, just a day or two before Halloween! The product is called the Life-Phorm and it looks just like a big mean spider but it’s a stand or mount or as they call it, a positioning device, for tablets, phones and cameras and it’s certainly unique as I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve seen and have the flexible legs tripods and stand but this one is certainly different from those. Read on to learn more..

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The Life-Phorm stand comes in a very sturdy and attractive box with pics and info on it.
You won’t find much inside of the box, just the Life-Phorm and the user guide.
The Life-Phorm’s legs all fold inward for portability kind of giving it a dead spider look, when you open it up it really looks like a dead spider then.
It really does look like a spider, it looks like a big mean scary spider actually. Arachnophobes might not like this product at all. The product those does seem well made, it’s made of plastic of course. Tip to tip diagonally when the legs are spread out it’s about 18 inches across and when folded it goes down to just above 8 inches across. It stands about 5 inches high not including the mount which adds another inch and a half basically. So it’s not small, but it’s not big either, it’s small enough to be called portable.
The tension on the legs can be adjusted with the screw joints of the legs and at the tips are hooks for gripping along with holes so you can secure it with string if need be. The legs can be adjusted right and left at the top where they meet the body and then there are two joints on the legs themselves that can be adjusted up and down and to make the legs curl to grab onto things.
The mounting bracket is actually four pieces, two of which are a tripod screw and washer together and then you have a sliding bracket that the screw goes into and the main mounting bracket that can fold open to accommodate larger devices. The bracket is made of metal and it does have padding on it to protect your devices from damage while in the bracket. You can use the bracket for your tablets and phones etc but the screw is a standard tripod screw which should fit the majority or camera and video cameras out there today. Basically you use the mount for your phones and tablets and then take it apart and just use the screw for your camera. The mount can be adjusted from about 21/2 inches up to about 4 1/2 inches without extended the bottom section. When you unfold it you can then go up to about 8 1/2 inches which should be fine for most smaller tablets.
Using it with a tablet is a unique experience for sure, it takes some work to get it to balance correctly but the user manual gives you a good idea of how to do it. The mounting bracket seems fine to hold the tablet, you just adjust it, put the tablet in, slide it tight and then tighten it all with the thumbscrew and you’re done. You can use your tablet vertically or horizontally with the stand, you just need to adjust he legs to make it stable and yes it works and it’s stable once you get he leg positing right. It seems like I had to do a lot of work to get it to work really to get it to work as a tablet stand, it took a while to get it adjusted correctly, the legs and the mounting bracket itself.
I also attached a camera to it with just the tripod mounting screw and attached the Life-Phorm to trees and it held just fine. The Life-Phorm can also be used for example on unstable ground as the legs can adjust to the different levels and surfaces but yet keep the camera level and stable.
As far as look are concerned the Life-Phorm is certainly interesting, I’ve never quite seen anything like it at all. The product itself seems well made and sturdy, fine for outdoor use.
It can take a bit of work on your part to get it to balance and stand correctly with a tablet, not sure it’s worth the effort really.
If you’re looking for something that you can take anywhere and use with just about any device then sure the Life-Phorm is a decent product. I can see taking it camping, hiking etc and using to hold the camera on trees or wherever and then at the end of the day maybe use it to hold your tablet while you relax. It can cut down on the need to carry multiple mounts and stands as it really is an all-in-one.
The mount is adjustable form about 2 1/2 inches up to about 8 1/2 inches so it should be able to accommodate most devices.
The legs can be adjusted to fit on and around things like trees to hold your camera in place for that perfect picture.
All in all it’s not a bad product, but I’m not sure I’d use it as an everyday type of stand as it does require a bit of work really.
+Works well and holding onto things
-Soft covering coming off mounting bracket
-Not what I would call easy to use
