If you are thinking if this Mi Selfie Stick is only compatible with Xiaomi’s phones only, you are wrong! The Mi Selfie Stick is compatible with most Android devices and all Apple devices running iOS 6.0 and above too!

The Mi Selfie Stick has a phone slot that is able to extend out to support most phone, eg. Apple iPhone 6 Plus(5.5inch) and its Xiaomi Mi Note(5.7inch). I don’t have any phablet-sized phone with me nor any Apple iPhones’, but let me test out with my Redmi 1S(4.7inch) and my old Samsung Galaxy Ace 2(3.8inch).
