Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Most people these days use their phones to take pictures. While the convenience is great, a thin rectangle isn't the most comfortable thing to hold and keep stable while taking a shot. With one of these camera grips, you can attain a better and steadier grip while documenting your next vacation. Some can double as an adapter that lets you attach your smartphone to a tripod for even more stability. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best smartphone camera grip on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 29, 2019:

Looked for as many options as possible that feature a functioning shutter button, but did include some models that simply function as ergonomic grips. Made sure that most models are able to connect to a tripod, so serious photographers have that option. Nearly all of the products listed claim to work with just about all smartphones, but if you have an XL phone or a particularly large case, you should look closely at the maximum width of each model.
