Selfie sticks to hold our cameras have been around for a long time, but recently they’ve taken off and received an entirely different meaning with smartphone users snapping photos. The “selfie” and selfie sticks are now a popular device that’s here to stay, so here we’ve rundown five or so awesome selfie sticks for Android users.

Call it a monopod or a selfie stick, but these are essentially poles that can telescope out to adjustable lengths for the perfect photo. Many are just standard poles to hold your smartphone, but others have wired remote shutter options, handheld remotes to snap photos via bluetooth, or some of the better ones even have the shutter button built into the sticks handle.

Over the past year or so the selfie stick has really taken off, but finding one that works and works well, not to mention fits many large Android devices like the Galaxy Note 4 or Nexus 6, isn’t quite as easy. With that, below are five good options for those seeking out a selfie stick.

CamKix 40-inch with Remote

To start we're suggesting one of the better selfie sticks available, one that I can sadly admit to using personally. The CamKix adjustable selfie stick is small being just 11-inches in size, but can extent to 40-inches while still being durable enough to hold the heaviest of phones. It can fit devices up to 3.25-inches wide, so the Nexus 6 is barely too big.

That being said, almost all other Android smartphones will fit the CamKix with ease. It features an adjustable telescope p to 40-inches, it's light and compact, and has a quality remote control for the shutter. Simply pair over bluetooth, and snap away. Many comes with remotes, but this one is a quality product coming in at a hefty $29.99. You can also get it for $19.99 without the remote.
