The GoDonut Portable Universal Device Stand is a compact, portable stand for mobile phones and tablets. It does just one thing, and it does it very well.

Steve Jobs often said of new technology from Apple that “it just works.” What I took from this is the late Apple co-founder felt the latest iPod, iPhone, or another product, was powerful and easy to use and worked automatically out of the box. Recently, I had the opportunity to check out the GoDonut Original universal stand. My conclusion after a few weeks of use: indeed, it just works.
The circular stand measures just 4 inches in diameter and 1 inch in height. But don’t let its small size full you. It’s a compelling solution for what it does. The molded plastic device features simple grooves that hold your smartphone, tablet, or another slim mobile device in place. By offering two slots, the GoDonut provides an adjustable, multi-angle experience in portrait or landscape mode.
One of the most frustrating things about buying a new mobile device is that you also have to purchase a new cover or case. The reason? The newer device is almost always designed just a little bit different than the one it replaced. Not so with the GoDonut, which has been created to work with most electronic devices, including Kindles.
Mobile device stands aren’t a new thing, of course. However, I have found many on the market aren’t strong enough to hold your device over long periods. The GoDonut is weighty enough to offer incredible stability whether you’re watching your favorite TV show or movie, or doing work. Best of all, it’s light enough to carry with you. It’s also washable and stackable when not in use.
Because people have different styles, the folks over at GoDonut have also launched the stand in multiple colors. These include hunter green, jet black, lime green, purple, cherry red, and pink. There’s also clear, metallics, and glow-in-the-dark options available, depending on where you make a purchase. Businesses can also have a 2-by-1/2-inch imprint placed on GoDonuts when purchasing the accessory in bulk.
Coming very shortly, GoDonut will be releasing a new swivel version of the circular stand measuring 4 inches in diameter and 1.5 inches in height. There are also two notches offering three different viewing angles, which makes it compatible with most slim mobile devices. As its name suggests, the accessory also provides a 360-degree swivel rotation for added flexibility. The swivel version will be available in the same colors as the original, hunter green, jet black, lime green, purple, cherry red, and pink.
Made in the United States, the GoDonut stand was Winner of the 2019 TWICE Picks Award at the Consumers Electric Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. You’ll find the innovative and yes, attractive, GoDonut stands at retailers, both online at Amazon and at most brick and mortar stores.
Mobile device stands come in various designs and sizes. The best are those that are durable and work with a large number of different devices. It also helps when they look good. Since receiving my collection of GoDonut stands for review purchases, I’ve used them every day throughout my home. You’ll find one on my desk in the home office and another near my bed. Friends received the rest of my lot, and all were impressed by the device’s durable design and flexibility. During testing, I used the GoDonut with current-generation Apple devices, including the iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. I have also used it with the 11-inch iPad Pro and 2019 iPad without a question or concern.
