I'll be honest - I bought two different holders for my iPhone 5, because I just didn't believe that this anti-slip pad would work. The reviews and descriptions just seemed... well, too hopeful. I'm not usually quite as sceptical as this, but as this was only about £8 and the other one I got was £10, I figured it was still cheaper than getting a Brodit, and if the anti-slip pad worked, then it would be vastly less unsightly than the Brodit.
Delivery was ridiculously fast. As in, I don't think it was possible for it to be faster in any way.
So, I tentatively opened the packaging and took it out to the car, finding the suitable place on my dashboard. The space I wanted to put it on was nearly vertical, but the review and description suggested that this would be ok, so I slapped it on. Yep, it stayed on my dashboard. Step 1 complete.
Next step, stick my iPhone on it. So I did, and it didn't make any kind of sound to suggest that it had stuck, so I assumed it hadn't. But when I started to pull the phone away, it clearly *was* stuck, and quite firmly too. So much so, I let go, and took the car out.
It stuck to the dashboard like a limpet. They stick to things really well, right? I hope so, as that's the kind of impression I'm trying to give here. The phone just stuck. And getting it off again was just as described - you effectively peel your phone off, and therefore assume there will be a veil of sludge on the back of your phone, but no, it's clean as a whistle.
I've used it variously in the past few days, and it's been solid as a rock. You certainly don't need your phone to be in contact with the entire pad, or the entire back of your phone to touch the pad; my phone has stuck firmly to the pad with a very small footprint actually being on the pad, and it's been totally solid.
Quite frankly, I don't understand how on earth it's so sticky, but it really is, and it's wonderful. I never did open the other phone holder, it's redundant.
