Not very good at all. a waste of money
Suction cup is of poor quality, keeps falling off the wind-shield.
Adhesive pad works well when the car is not moving, however once you start driving the vibration will cause the phone to fall.
I would not recommend buying this product!
This is just a great phone holder and I have just ordered one for my wife's car too..
This had been fixed on the windscreen and jot taken on or off.
Very poor. Avoid. You get what you pay for!
No marks left on either case or phone (when taken out of case). All the pot holes in the UK are not going to dislodge my phone from this mount
I found that the angle of the pad was not as adjustable as I needed, and after a few days it did not hold the phone securely, and the phone kept falling off
- carefully took the sticky pad out from its base. (It's only "sticking" there)
- pressed it on to the phone
- Spread the glue onto the base (only a thin layer to avoid messing everything with the glue)
- pressed the pad (and the phone) back to the glued base
- let it dry
Now the sticky pad follow the shape of the phone, and carries it like nothing. Problem fixed!
I've used this for flat backed phones and it's perfect, it just doesn't work with the Nexus 6.
Worked fine for the first day and then my phone started falling off (LG G3).
Cleaned it, gave it all lot of tlc. All to no avail. My phone keeps falling off after about 5 minutes. Disappointing.
bought couple of months ago but used only 3 times.that was it.sticky pad on the base came off..
The unit also is not that well made with the locking screw keep coming loose and the sticky cover for the screw head fixing dropping off before the end of the first day. The sucker fixing is barely adequate and again over the bumps it drops of the screen.
Will be looking for a more robust unit to suit my needs and terrain.
I have had this for a couple of weeks and it hasn't lost it's stick at all yet so an excellent item.
To cut a long story short, the item was already in the dispatch phase before I could cancel the order so it was sent out and delivered.
Since I had it in my hand, I decided to check it out anyway before returning it, and I'm glad I did.
I heartily recommend it if your looking for an easy to install and use phone holder for your car.
The only thing I would say is that you need to ensure that the holder is tilted ever so slightly to the back to ensure that the phone doesn't become loose whilst driving. If you stick to this simple rule, it be be solid.
So... If you're looking for something to do the job it's designed for well, go for this.
I would recommend it for any phone, even the biggest smartphone.
I am going to use them in the windscreen of Heavy Good vehicles too
Just remember to let the phone lean back slightly at least and it will be an absolute joy forever. Brilliance at last.
This is no good, and certainly dangerous, so I have returned it, and plan to replace it with a traditional holder.
It probably did not help, that the day I tried to make it work the temperature was around 0 Centigrade, but then it often is here.
If your case has any kind of ridged pattern, the phone won't stick properly and will keep falling off.
If your case isn't designed to come off easily (as mine isn't) this isn't the product for you.
Also well worth the price and fast delivery
At present I have had no issues.
First class company,
I was just hoping the long stick was movable left and right and not up and down only.
When I came to install it in her car, the pin on the suction mechanism lever was half out, so I had to squeeze that in with some pliers. Hope it lasts.
It certainly sticks very well, and leaves no residue on the back of the phone, but getting it off is a two-handed affair, as you have to hold the holder and then pull the phone off. This would be annoying if you were trying to get out of the car with something else in your hands. After just 4 days, she is already saying that it is starting to lose it's stick a bit, as it gets fluff and stuff stuck to it. You can just wash it under the tap, but I was not expecting to have to do that every week ! I was originally looking for a car holder for my iPhone 6+ when it comes, but I am not sure this would be it. I really need something I can use one-handed.
Driving my 10 ton loading shovel it helps me to keep full
Control of shovel and if family need me they can call me with the knowledge of knowing I am taking the call with safety of others.
Small design, simple but robust mechanism and great variety of positions possible. Holds the device incredibly well! The 'pad' is ridiculously sticky and does NOT leave a sticky residue on your device!
The sticky 'pad' will need cleaning with fresh water, no soap needed, once a week (subject to usage) to ensure the pad remains as sticky as possible.
After inspection, it`s probably down to the HTC having a curved back, as the holder worked fine with my wife`s Samsung Galaxy S3 mini.
Please bear this in mind, it will NOT work with a HTC One Max.
I'm thinking to replace the device by something with a better design.
YES - it does work! YES - your phone will stay STUCK! YES - I will be buying more!
Brilliant!! Thanks to MobileFun for very fast shipping and great packing also. Why have I only just discovered MobileFun? Where have you been all my life? :D
Save your money, buy something else.
Unfortunately the star rating is for the product and not the customer services team...
However, it is working brilliantly, survived 1000km drive from switzerland - robust and reliable.
As the arm is quite long, the positioning ends up aligning well with other instruments, out of line of sight, but easily in view. Best thing was it is close enough to really work for a hands free conference call as well.
Worried that the stick might not last, but cross that bridge if we get to it.
It holds my Massive, Heavy Lumia 920 with ease.
I've bought two of them, one for the Smart car and one for our Nissan Elgrand.
2 very different cars, 2 very different setups, both work perfectly for me and my Lumia.
You can even stick it to the pad at an angle so that you can use the camera while you're driving!
Turn it horizontal whilst in use if you want (useful for satnav), angle it towards you for better speech recognition, I've got one on the windscreen and one on the dash and I could be more pleased.
I´ve used both window and dash mount. The difference is that the dash itself is a bit soft. The suction cup is at bit soft. The lever is quite tall and the green pad is soft and sticky. These many soft items and tall lever cause to much vibration for getting 5 stars.
Btw, the adhesive disc is easily removed from the dash without leaving residue anywhere. But it won´t stick anywhere again at all. Separate discs are available. At least in Sweden.
I agree that the green pad is almost to sticky. I use my SGS 2 without casing and the back cover stays on the pad if I´m not careful.
I have had no problems in hot summer conditions.
Use the guarantee!
I´ve experienced that an iPhone 4S (glass back cover)is easier to remove from the sticky pad. The 4S does not get stuck as hard and yet it won´t fall off.
Now I consider trying the Clingo ventilation holder due to the shorter lever. Hopefully the vibration will decrease and my view out the window gets better.
I hope you got a little more info.
Regards from Sweden.
The sticky pad that you apply your phone too is excellent and i have had no problems...if anything it can be a bit too sticky and can be tricky to peel your phone off. However i would prefer it that way than watching my phone falling off, sliding down the dashboard and bouncing out the window and down down the road! The suction clamp that applies to the window is also excellent and it has never fallen off the windscreen. I bought this because it works well with the samsung flip cover, I just stick the phone in portrait and let the cover fold back over the bracket.
The holder is now useless and my phone is covered in sticky goo - looks like a long job to try and clean it all up.
I would avoid this unless you live in antartica
1 - it clings to the windscreen like no other unit i have had before
2 - the arm is rigid so the mobile/PDA does not vibrate or bounce around (much)
3 - the sticky pad holding the mobile/PDA is fantastic and when it does loose it's stickiness, you wash it - brill!
The main let down of this mount is the ball joint between the sticky pad and the arm. I have had my 6 months and the joint has lost it's grip which causes my iPhone to "droop" especially if its being charged. I'm sure I can do something to rectify the problem myself but for now I just let it rest on the dash.
Would have been 5 stars but for the ball joint flaw.
Great service from Mobile Fun too!!
My only problem is that my lovely shiny new Smart Phone is SOoo heavy that I don't believe the suction cup and / or the sticky backed plate is strong enough to hold the whole arm in place if it is stretched out horizontally, so I am looking at other ways of fixing the Clingo unit in my car.
* Built well - strong yet light
* Suction cup lever very easy to set in place, with firm grip
* Easy to move phone around, yet enough friction in the joint so the phone does not flop down when driving
* The sticky surface is not a gimmick, it DOES hold!
* Recommending this to anyone I know who is searching for a solution like this.
