hi, I made a camera tripod for htc sensation, which needs nothing special to make.
first, I brought my old unused camera tripod, which has ability to remove its connection with the camera part, you can see it in the picture below:

then, I measured the width of its edge to make a part to connect the phone on it and put the part instead of the old part.
after that, I cut a part of thin wood to replace it with that part,
then, I needed a part that can hold the phone, so I used one of my unused mobile covers and glued it to a part of a wood and made the phone holder.
finally, I glued the phone holder to the part which I made before and made something like this:

then inserted it to the camera tripod stand:


sorry, I'm not good at English.

Very cool! I've bought cell phone tripod mounts on amazon but my HTC Sensation seems to be too big for them. LOL.
