Not perfect for N8. – Mini Plastic Tripod for Cell Phone Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
This is a great product for cellphones, but you need to check BEFOREHAND what the dimensions of your cellphone.
Build quality seems very reasonable, the spring for clamping down is decently strong, but if you use to much force you will end up breaking it.
I ended up breaking mine while trying to modify it
Cons:
This will not work well with Nokia N8.
Its 2-3mm too short to support the N8, you need to force the phone in. BUT that results in scratching the phone's aluminum case.
What you can do is take the clamp apart and try to adjust it yourself, but please be careful!!!! I ended up breaking my spring off the clamp.
None the less, I can still use the clamp and screw it on most tripods. Just need an elastic band.
Other:
Bottomline:
Give it a try, not very expensive. If it works, then amazing deal.
if it doesn't work, then luckily you only got it for cheap
