I’ve found most phone stands to be pretty gimmicky mostly because I rarely have a need. That being said, there have been a few times while traveling when my 3D printed phone stand has come in handy for my wife or kids… So, I keep it in my travel bag.

Mophie just introduced a step up from my plastic crap… It’s a foldable stand that uses MagSafe… and the reviews are really positive.
