The manufacture suggests that the camera be 1/2 inch or less from the side of the body of the phone for it to work in portrait mode. The camera needs to be 1/2 inch away from the top of the device to work in landscape mode. If the camera is 1/2 to 3/4 inch away from the phone’s body, the Stand will be usable but some part of the camera might show up in the picture. If the camera is more than 3/4 inches from the phone’s body, the Stand will not be useful.
