Overall a good pack with some quality stuff, some less quality
I only really wanted a car mount for my new phone, but this looked good value and the reviews are positive.
For the most part, my review would be positive too.
I use the holder on my windscreen, so can't comment on how it works mounted on the dashboard, but it's working well on the windscreen, and creates a very firm mount on the windscreen, and the grip on the phone is also very tight.
It's only fallen off once, when I'd left the car parked in full sun on a hot day: not surprising it fell off, and certainly not a fault - I can't see this happening if you were driving, as you'd have the ventilation on, and the windscreen wouldn't get as hot.
It's very flexible in terms of positioning, so you can get your phone exactly how you want it. It's also possible to position the phone in the mount so that the camera has a clear view, unobstructed by the mount, if that's useful to you.
The mount can be folded back in on itself when not in use, keeping it very neat and unobtrusive.
The desk mount is obviously the product of witchcraft, as it grips both the desk and the phone by a completely non-obvious means - it's not even as sticky as a post-it note to touch, but sticks magically! (though I think I once read/heard something about this on a science programme).
The polycarbonate case does what it says on the tin. It's a good fit - such a good fit, that I found it a bit tricky to remove. So I've decided not to use this, as I don't really care if the back of my phone gets the occasional scuff mark. If you really want to keep your phone in a pristine out-of-the-box state, then it'd be very good at that.
I'd already got an "official" Samsung screen protector, so haven't used the screen protectors that are included in this pack. Useful to have spares for when the time comes.
The only real disappointment in this pack (and the reason I've docked one star off the score) is that the "Mini Portable Desk Stand and Stylus" is nothing like the one shown as the last item in the product description (though is accurately portrayed in the video & the 7th product image when you click on the large image at the top of the page. It isn't a stylus by any stretch of the imagination. Instead, it's a rather strange piece of rubber with a not terribly effective sucker on one end (maybe it works better if you've the polycarbonate case fitted), and a ball of rubber on the other. I've tried a few times to get it to hold the phone, but it's a very precise balancing act, and even if you manage to balance it, as soon as you touch it, if falls over. Might as well just put the phone flat on the desk. Totally pointless lump of rubber!
Thank you for pointing out the error, we have updated the page and if you contact our Customer Services team, we will send you the correct 'Mini Portable Desk Stand and Stylus'.
