We've looked at a few different mobile stands in the past, but none quite like the CozyBot stand. You see, the CozyBot was made for specifically for Android users. Why? Because it is an Android. A little plastic Android that holds your phone/tablet/whatever, to be exact.

I spent the last couple of weeks hanging out with the little green guy, and here's what I think of him so far.

Review

Price: This stand is incredibly affordable - it's only £4.99 (about $7.73 USD). Seriously. That's a great deal.

Where to Buy: Right here.

The Bottom Line: What's not to love? It holds your device, has slots for charging cables, it's affordable, and, best of all, it's an Android!

The Good

  • It's an Android.
  • It has slots so you can string your USB cable through and charge your device whilst in the stand.
  • It can hold anything from a phone to a 10-inch tablet.
  • It's crazy-affordable.

The Bad

  • It's a little bit on the flimsy side.
  • The Android likes to fall forward when there's nothing holding it back (i.e. when the stand is empty).

The CozyBot is shipped as two separate pieces: the Android and the base. To make it once cohesive unit, the Android's feet slide into the available cutouts on the base. Easy peasy.

The quality of a stand is only as good as the material it's made from: in this case, plastic. Don't sell it short though, it's very sturdy with a device in/on it. The Android also appears to be both perfectly scaled and colored; in fact, the green is even the official Android color!

One of the best features of the CozyBot is the side/back slots so you can thread your USB cable into the stand and charge your device while it rests in the stand, making it both convenient and organized.

All-in-all, it's really hard to beat the CozyBot, especially for the money. It's simple, practical, functional, and... Android.

Good luck!

    I MUST have a Cozybot so I can not only prop up my G2x.. but my Transformer too (although it does have a case with stand..) it'll be awesome to not only boast having an awesome stand but to also show my Android pride with this neat accessory for all my current and future Android devices; now that I think about it I may just give it to my friend instead :) she'll love it.

  • Salomon Manuel

    because that little green droid is AWESOME!
    and my phone keeps falling off the desk

  • Yasumy

    Cozybot would be my first stand, as I am an android stand virgin. Please let cozybot be my first. Give me the prize and I will be happy for all the stand virgins out there!

    As a high school student who doesn't have time for a job (AP classes kill all of my time), charging cables for my phone are expensive at 15 bucks a piece. That wouldn't be a problem if I only had to buy one, but unfortunately, the way my desk is configured, it crimps the cable and causes it to be unreliable. If I were to win this Cozybot it would alleviate the necessity to continuously repurchase cables for my phone due to the cable management capabilities of this phone stand. It would also allow for a reliable alarm/desk clock when my phone is on the stand.

    Cozybot looks like the perfect desk stand for my HTC phone. I guess I could also use it to support my iPad. I really want to try it out and write a review/blog post on it.

  • trevor ashman

    i wannt it to annoy my iphone holding wife :-)

    Cozybot will be an awesome stand for my desk so that I look snazzy flashing my phone to Apple fanboys here in my room.

  • O S

    Because it's awesome.

  • Bruce

    I want one because my phone keeps falling over as it is and because I never win on these contests.

  • http://www.tylerlane.net/ Tyler

    I want it because it would make all of my coworkers jealous

  • Hector Acevedo

    Cause all Android toys are cool

  • Justin

    I bought 3 of them. One for me, 2 to give away. We all hate them. "Flimsy is an understatement. Although they made it so a power cord can go in the bottom, in reality - it can't. Plug it in and it will topple the phone over.

    Emailed the company a few weeks ago - no response.
