Have you ever tried to keep a phone or tablet device standing upright only to have it slide down? Or attempted to use the existing market stands only to have them topple at the nearest rattle or bump? You know the frustration this can result in. If you have had enough of unstable standing apparatuses or trying to balance your phone or tablet against a hard surface, take ease knowing that the Lookstand 2.0 for phones and Lookstand Max for tablets is here to help alleviate your problems.
After undergoing a functional redesign, the Lookstand returns with a slimmer design and added sturdiness. It is not just an easy freestanding assistant to phones and tablets. It is capable of attaching to the back of the device, and folding neatly into place when it is time to pack up and go. In fact, the Lookstand 2.0, when folded, is small enough to slide into your pocket right along with your phone.
Features and Improvements
The Lookstand 1.0 revolutionized phone stands. However, admittedly, the detachable mount and bracket were not the easiest to detach from the phone. Hearing the feedback and absorbing the advice, the Lookstand 2.0 is now 25% easier to detach. The Detach Mount is slimmer and much easier to dislocate or attach from the device with simple slide-down functionality.
The Lookstand 2.0 offers increased strength and long term durability. The shaft at the base now has a stronger hold and an extra spring allows for a firmer rotation. The bolts on the hinges have also been fixed.
Now the Lookstand patented models can remain attached to the back of the device. When you are ready to go, you don’t leave it behind, just simply collapse it. The stands can now vary up heights from as low as 3.5 in (9 cm) to as tall as 7.1 in (18 cm). The medium height is 4.7 in (12 cm). This offers choices of varying preset heights so you can adjust the stand to your desired position.
The attached mount can tilt up to 120 degrees. It rotates as needed for a full 360 degrees if you need to flip the display of the image. The stand is stronger than any generic device holder, which depends so much on the right balance and the right space that placing it with a device requires a lot of careful consideration. The Lookstand 2.0 and Lookstand MAX are stable no matter the surface you choose.
The size of the device in its collapsed form is such that it slides easily into your pocket for easy portability. It transforms to your needs and angles, all with a simple design created to work with the detachable mounts. You can detach the devices from the stand, and use for wireless charging with the mount still attached.
Operating the Lookstand
Operating the Lookstand is simple. It can operate as a kickstand for your device or a grip. It can also extend, and you can hold it in hand vertically or horizontally for easy visibility and portability. You can extend the height of the device by using the glide function. For phones, you can use the Lookstand 2.0 as a selfie stick or a device holder.
Suitable for any need associated with a portable device, the Lookstand transforms into a phone stand or tripod for your chosen device.
Believe it or not, 4 hours is the average time a person spends on their phone daily. In the upright position the human head averages about 12 lbs. Now think about how much it weighs when used to look down at your desk or lap to see your phone. Its weight increases up to 4 times! That’s about 60 lbs. Luckily, the Lookstand’s multiple adjustable positions help alleviate about half of that weight from your neck and shoulder.
But don’t be swayed simply by its functional superiority, the Lookstand is also stylish and trendy. Created in South Korea, the Lookstand is already being used by many Korean fashion influencers and celebs to create content for their audiences.
The Lookstand 2.0 is suitable for cell phones and weighs at a mere 1.6 oz (46 g) and measures 1.2 in x 3.7 in x 0.2 in (30 x 93 x 6.9 mm). It is designed from the AL6061 aluminum alloy, and is available in 5 colors including black, gold, steel, red, and blue.
The Lookstand Max, perfect for tablets, is lightweight in its own right, coming in at only 2.9 oz (85 g), with dimensions of 1.7 in x 3.9 in x 0.4 in (42 x 99 x 9.5 mm). It is similarly designed from an AL6051 Aluminum alloy, and is available in red, steel, or black color choices.
