Built over the course of two days, by 12 members of the Chi Hack Night to show budget issues in a simple and easy to understand format.
I got the kit from Google and I think my Nexus 5X with the Google Fi billing is EXCELLENT. One complaint: the Lego directions for the phone stand are backwards.
If you build it the way the directions indicate, the cord doesn't hold the phone against the backrest. I had to reverse the side that has the cord race in it, and then it works well. Just reverse the walls, so the cord comes through the taller wall, and it works well.
