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.

wm_2012-03-07 10.39.15

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).

wm_2012-03-07 10.51.27

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.

wm_2012-03-07 10.51.03 wm_2012-03-07 11.03.48

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

    This solves both problems!

  • Vikramaditya Rai

    I want it because I'm a big Android fan & also, because, look at it... It's adorable!! It'd look so good holding my phone on my study table...

  • Anton

    I want one to make all my fellow android nerds jealous.

  • http://@phone_pimp(Twitter) Marcus Hamilton

    I need it to hold up my Windows phone. What, at least I'm honest...

  • Jay Vallejo

    Galaxy S2 deserves to be held by the Android God. its still the best phone on the market (yes i have ICS running on it) so what better way to show my friends how good a phone i have by having it chill on this cozy.

  • Mike

    this stand is so awesome.. i work in a call centre for Telus Mobility, sporting a Gnex. everyone around me is jealous, and if i get to sport this badboy on my desk, it will just add to the fun of it all. also it is really practicle to use instead of larving it on my desk i can put it in front of my keyboard and use it with out having to hold it and typing with 1 hand on the kb.

  • Aaron

    Sorry, I'm not going to like a FB page for this. But, tell them to put them up on Amazon and I'll buy one right now.

  • coryteague

    love it!! I hope I can snag one.. if not I'll just buy

  • Kevin Dahlstrom

    Really wants one to show how much of a Droid Geek I am. I can't get to the website, but am leaving a comment anyway...will keep trying. REALLY want one!

    • Kevin Dahlstrom

      No like button, was able to +1 it though. Hope that counts.

  • pauljohnson75

    I would put my nexus in it at the office to make all the IOS fan boys even more jealous.

  • Kelly

    I'm obsessed with Android, and this would just complete my adroid figure collection in my cube!

    Btw, looks like this article brought down their site, can't get it to load, so can't click the like button on their page

  • Schafe

    I totally need this for work. I tether my Rezound to a Toughbook at work. Right now it rests on the latch on the screen and rest up against the window in my cubical, not very safe for my phone if the screen or laptop moves at all. CozyBot would be great so I don't have to worry about it falling off the screen. Not to mention, the green android in a government cubical... EPIC!

  • Nick

    I want this so I can show off how awesome I am at work. All of my other attempts have failed.

  • Al

    I have about 4 locations that I need docks for my phone. My office desk, my nightstand, my home desk, and my car. I would -love- to get one of these for the office to help showoff my android pride :D

  • BIDISHA BANERJEE

    I wished to have a tablet and a phone stand for a long time but had never got them. I am a huge fan of Android and I love all its products. I would really appreciate winning this.

  • BG

    want it! it'll make my tablet more android oriented

  • http://androidphoneitalia.it/ McStarlings

    So much love for this pretty thing. It'd be perfect to keep the Galaxy S2 by my side when I'm sitting on the desk AND be able to see the screen without having to use one hand to keep it up :D

  • Keyan X

    I would love to have a cozybot because my phone/alarm clock would be much easier to read if it could stand up :P

  • Przemysław HentaiMan Badowski

    This is the most usable think I've ever seen! Best for my lessons, because i'm mostly rewriting things from my phone. Usually it gets quite uncomfortable and I have to deal with light from the lamp #firstworldsproblems. With this sweet stand my problem would be over! Also it would perfectly fit on my table, so phone-placement-problem would be dead too. Hope to get this awesome thing!

  • Anup Patil

    I want the cozy bot because its a perfect companion for my galaxy s2 plus i love the android robot :)

  • joee

    A perfect way to park my phone next to my Dyzplastic Androids. Like the way it works landscape or portrait.

  • Jamison England

    It looks awesome and I should have one.

  • Tim M

    I was just about to start surfing amazon for cheap phone holders for my desk at work. This would be perfect! Especially since I'm the android guy on my work campus.

  • Dan

    I've been after an Android-based accessory for a long time and this is the first that I've immediately fallen in love with! Plus it'd be handy for when I'm at my desk, rather than keeping it in my pocket or having it at an awkward-to-read angle.

  • Andrew

    I keep putting my phone down places and forgetting where it is, if I had this stand I'd never forget where it is again

  • colin sewell

    i've been wanting a decent stand for awhile i tried making a home made one out of a tape cassette but it just didnt feel right for my phone . . this would be perfect

  • Brandon Cromer

    I would absolutely love to win one of these. The main reason I want one is so I can rest my Galaxy Note on it while watching YouTube videos at work.

  • Scott

    I want it so my phone will have a cozy place to be while I sleep

  • Joshua Nelson

    Perfecr for holding and charging the Galaxy while I sit in the office bored out my mind!

  • Gerard

    Because it's Android! And it's very nice. I've always wanted to have any android-shaped thing!

  • Joe C

    Adblock was blocking the Like button in Chrome but after white listing the site I was able to click Like.

    I'll love to have one since in my office everyone has an iphone except me, so I like to make fun of my co-workers; one of them is the opposite of me, he's an Apple lover. So, having this would be awesome, and should troll him, and of course, it looks awesome :D

  • Dave

    My phone like many others suffers from Erectile Dysfunction (ED). We have come to terms with it and no longer find it embarrassing. This stand could really help keep my phone upright. This could also give my phone the courage and confidence it needs to bump that sexy Nexus down the hall!

  • Jon Amarino

    I need that "darsh gone cute" stand for my wicked Android device... and to rub it in to "apple" loving wife!

  • http://www.facebook.com/THEadamlewis Adam

    Why do I want this more than everyone else? As a college student who lives in a very crowded house, this would relieve at least one source of my stress.

    I do most of my writing/web browsing on my Acer A500 or HTC Sensation. Both of these devices are known for being on the heavier side of the spectrum. There isn't really a "desk" in my house so everything is done at the dinner table - now imagine writing a paper by either holding up a tablet for hours or leaning over with it flat against the table. It is frustrating.

    This CozyBot would be used every day if in my possession.

  • Sleeepy2

    This seems to be safer than what I am using now (a box with a whole cut into it).

  • Matt M

    I want a CozyBot because anything Android rocks my socks!

  • Lee Rowley

    I'm sick and tired of having my HTC Incredible S lying on my desk at work looking dead to the world with iPhones laughing at it. With a Cozybot my Android can stand tall and show itself off to the world!!

  • Richard M

    This is great for my Android phone.
    Since I'm a huge Android geek this would look great on my table where I charge my phone.

  • Lee Rowley
