Just remember that when using any mic with a mobile device, unplug it when you playback your file. Why? Because you plugged your mic into the audio jack, of course. Most apps will assume you've plugged in a headset or other type of speaker, so the apps send sound through the jack and not to the main speaker. Please don't panic and assume your mic malfunctioned (some reviewers appear to have done just that). If you really want to keep your mic plugged in during playback, you can change your settings to always use the main speaker (very easy to do on most phones/tablets, but I still find it simpler to unplug the mic).
The little clip is strong, and the mic stays on securely. The chord is much longer than I'll ever need, which is fine by me. I've never fully unraveled it, and never will. Nor will I ever run into a problem with it being too short. Bottom line, I feel I can rely on this mic to do the job, whatever I'm doing.
One last thing. When buying electronics it's really important to understand that the manufacturing costs depend very heavily on what % of the devices are lemons. You can sometimes find the exact same product coming off the same assembly line under different brand names and the only difference is that the cheap brands are more likely to be faulty (eg. maybe 3-5% of the cheap ones are duds, while the expensive brands only allow <0.1% failure rate). Even so, most of the cheap ones will work just as well as the high-priced brands. For simple electronics like this, I usually choose a low-cost one and take my chances. I would never take that chance with a complex device like a phone because too many things can go wrong. But with a mic? Sure! I took a chance and I would do so again. I always check reviews first though, and make sure I see some glowing reviews. I want to know that if the product works, it's going to work well. The last thing I want is a device that is poorly designed, and there are plenty of those out there too so be careful.
For me, this little mic is a good example of an inexpensive product at a price low enough for me to easily take the risk. Do be honest with yourself though. If you get a dud, would you be really upset? Would you bother trying to get a refund? Maybe you wouldn't bother, but you're willing to risk the cash anyway. Just be honest with yourself. And if you're feeling unlucky, don't buy cheap electronics!
Be sure to carry extra batteries. The mic itself is very good but it was picking up too many breath noises as I paused. It turned out it was because I had the camera mic setting on auto, so each time the volume was going up when I wasn't talking. Problem solved but those damn wind foam covers they never stay on. I fasten mine down with a plastic pull tight.
I've used this on both a Samsung Smartphone and a Canon EOS M6, both without issue. Note that if you do use it with a camera such as the Canon, you'll need an LR44 battery (which comes with it), and you'll need to remember to switch it to camera mode.
