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.

  • andy h

  • Tandy

    Hi there,

    I would love to cozy on up with the CozyBot as Andy looks cool on any desktop and he will look even cooler with my magnificent Android powered smartphone leaning against him and in turn CozyBot Andy will make my Android smartphone look even cooler.

    A great way to show off that Android spanks the backside of the iphone, picture the iphone leaning against a half eaten apple or a phone leaning against the great 'Andy'...... no contest.

    More than that with a partial paralysis to one arm using my phone would be easier when doing things like watching youtube.

    Oh and its my birthday on the 10th (born march 10th 1969)

    Thanks, good luck to all
    tandy

And when I'm sleeping, my phone lays next to me, it is falling down nearly everynight, but I cant without my phone close to me... My phone is also my alarm, thats why I need it, to keep my phone safe when it stands waiting for more interaction!

  • Keyz Karanza

    I, like some 6.8 billion people on earth, suffer from the ill effects of global gravity. Many have the days been that I have suffered the humiliation of not being able to jump over skyscrapers, play a game of catch with a friend three states over, or yes, even have my Android phone stand by itself on end. While I am not alone with this misfortune, I feel driven to act a spokesperson for the cause and I extend a plea to Android Police. Please show that you care. Dig deep and donate a CozyBot so that my Android will no longer be a reminder of this painful affliction.
