Very nice bit of kit
It does what it says on the tin.
Seems ok so far
For me the longevity of the product was important. I really didn't want to buy something poor quality that would break and have to be replaced. From product waste and ecological perspective. I've used it for 1 month and all good. If it lasts a year I'll come back and give it 5 stars!
Pretty good
So far so good. I have used it on the dash only and it does fall off if left in a hot car but it has re stuck on fine to the dash. The holder for the phone is great, easy to stick my phone in, holds securely and easy to take out each time.
not quite adequate
does not apply for vertical position
No happy
Hate to say but sticky mount has failed devices no longer attach. Worked for about a week and a half.....
Difficult
I have goes ka. Is difficult to put it anywhere but side window.
Doesn't fix to dash of windscreen due to angle problem.
Would not have bought it if seen first.
No hold for big phones
I have a iPhone X max and an otter box cover on it and so the stand can’t handle the weight and only has two small pieces for the phone to rest on and nothing to keep it in place so I can’t use it because the phone comes flying off it when I start driving and making turns.. good quality tho but just not suitable for my phone
Not very good stick keeps unsticking and phone falls
The phone keeps falling off the red sticky back. Ideally a holder should have a firm grip of the phone
Sticky mount doesn’t hold
I cleaned my dash in multiple areas and installed the mount. It comes loose regardless of where i put it. My phone is superight and it won’t hold it, very disappointed
Does NOT NOT NOT stick to most surfaces
I feel irritated by this product. The blurb online promised it would stick to virtually any surface. This is not the case. It does stick well to glass but that's about it. Also, I purchase it in conjunction with a VRS case with back slot for credit cards. The two products don't work well together as you need to pull the phone off of the sticky dot. This means the credit card flap is under a lot of pressure and would be unlikely to last long term. VRS phone case fine. Olixar Dash Genie is a con :(
Good basic holder
Holds the phone pretty well, not sure how long the sticky pads will last but happy with the product so far.
Holds my galaxy s10 comfortably
Uselss
Completely useless plastic crap. Would hold to dash or to phone with its 'sticky' pads. Fell off when I went round corner first time using it. Very disappointed that I wasted time and earths resources.
Dash genie v2 in car dashboard windscreen holder
I would of like to know that the sticky pad was strong enough to hold my at any given angle and not fall off as it has done several times and nearly damaging the phone in the process. I have since had to angle the phone so it caddles it slanting forward, it OK but falls off from time to time.
Rubbish
Absolute rubbish, slightest bump, corner or acceleration and the phone is on the floor
Universal but not so sticky
Support is only at the bottom or one side so it is quite easy for the phone to fall off unless the holder is tilted well back.
Doesn't work on my windscreen
Doesn't work on the windscreen of a 3 series BMW due to slope of windscreen, can't fit the phone in. Very disappointing as otherwise looked well made etc. Haven't tried in another car so might work for others. Haven't tried to return it as nothing wrong with it otherwise, will look more closely at an alternative product!
Works as Advertised!
The holder works very good. You can put it on the windshield or the dash and it stays in place and holds the phone.
excellent
Great product , well worth the money.
Have recommended to friends.
Excellent I have bought a second one for the other vehicle
This adheres to nearly every impermeable surface in the vehicle reliably, even the curved dimpled dash, without marking the surface and comes of cleanly. It also adheres reliably to the various devices I have used it with (up to 5.5 inch phone, not tried anything bigger). It occasionally needs to be cleaned by washing in soapy water and rinsing. The surfaces need to be reasonably clean so if your dash/phone is filthy forget it or clean it. Keep the pads covered (keep the film covers its packed with) when not in use or they will be fouled by dust and need cleaning to restore function. In portrait mode there is little room for a charger lead butits not impossible.
Sticks like superglue
I was sceptical about buying this after reading mixed reviews,but I was convinced after watching the you tube review, when I received it,I was surprised how small it actually was,but i’ve Used it & can confidently say it”s really good & the stick phone holder is very sticky,it takes a bit of force to release it after use,I would have no hesitation in recommending this product
Nice idea but not great in reality
Didnt realize it uses a gel sticky pad to get the phone attached to the holder, and there are no clips. Nice idea and I would prefer this but I don't think the gel stickpad is going to last long. Already my phone has fallen off the mount a couple of times.
Fab product, great price!
This mount does 'exactly what it says on the tin.' It grips both the dash and phone extremely well and holds firmly over even the roughest roads. Completely adjustable and a very competitive price make this a No.1 must-have accessory.
Fab accessory!
Great mount. Suitable for all my devices and seems to work on all surfaces, even dimpled ones. Grips both phone and dashboard like a clam! Great value for money.
Lovely holder
after a lot of time involved trying to find the proper mobile phone holder I found this mobile phone holder to be ideally the perfect thing it fits well into the car and hold my mobile phone without any problem even any bumps it still holds it
Looked good. however
This phone holder looked like it might suit my needs. However, the phone (Huawei P9) failed to stay in the holder. Also the holder fell from the dash. The holder is too small with not enough room to for the phone especially if stuck to the windscreen
Good gadget
Great suction cup base and good phone holder for most applications, not great on bumpy roads or to mount on the windscreen as the sticky bit that holds the phone gets tired after a while and phone falls off but great in more conventional applications
It does the job perfectly well
It does the job perfectly well, the grip is firm and is perfect for my phone
no good for my car
My car windscreen is too steep to hold my phone in a vertical position and the dashboard has no flat surfaces to hold the device. The arm attached to the ball joint is too short to allow full adjustment on the windscreen. Good idea but didn't work for me.
TOTAL FAILURE
This product is a total failure and if Mobil Zap wants to stay credible and have products that can be trusted, I am asking for a refund. It did not even work for a whole day.

Looks like a good Idea
After using it for a day of driving, I don't know how long the sticky pad will last. it seems to be less sticky already.
I think the magnetic disk is a much better idea.
Excellent Holder
This holder did everything that I wanted as described in the advert. Excellent buy.
Great holder
This is a great piece of kit which does exactly what is says on the tin. The fact that you can convert this from portrait to landscape is really useful and the phone sits extremely well within the device. Also the fact that it can be windscreen or dashboard mounted is really handy. All in all a very useful addition to my Audi
Great product
I have bought car phone holders before but this device is great my previous car phone holders on the windscreen have been cumbersome and awkward to hold the phone. By having it on the dash board it doesn't block your view or distract you from viewing the road ahead , an excellent device I have shown it to family and friends which they are thinking of buying
Fits the bill
I like the dash genie. It stays in place and keeps my phone in place as well. It is what I needed.
Good and stable
I am really happy with this product. My phone attaches to it well. The only thing is that it's tricky to get off the windscreen so I leave it on the windscreen and pray that no one breaks into my car thinking I've got something in the glove box worth taking...!

I am happy with this though and spent a long time deciding which phone holder to buy.
Neat unit.
I bought this unit as it was recommended by Autoexpress. It arrived quickly and I was impressed by the small size. Assembly was quick and the unit attached firmly to the dashboard. It could also be removed and repositioned easily. The sticky pad for holding the phone is very effective just by placing the phone in the unit. Removing the phone can be a two handed job as it sticks so well. I've only had the mount a short time so i will have to see how this settles and whether the sticky becomes less clingy. Altogether I think the unit is worthy of the recommendations.
Great product, great service
This phone holder was delivered quickly and we'll packaged to my home address. The original was missing a part but the returns process was simple (and free) and the replacement was with me quickly. I highly reccomend it for commuting and leisure, it holds my phone steady and is adjustable as described. Thanks a lot!
Really happy with product, would recommend.
Really happy with the product but one issue I do have is that the sticky pad stays stuck to the phone when I remove it from the holder. I have had to super glue the sticky pad back to the holder to prevent this happening. Otherwise this holder was just what I required and have not issue with it adhering to dashboard or windscreen.
Would recommend this product and MobileZap.
The best I've tried but could be better
Firstly, the suction base sticks like a limpet and keeps the phone holder rock solid so top marks there.The sticky pad that holds the phone worked fine on the phone back case (smooth plastic) and even in sharp turns the phone stayed put (good as it's a 5.5inch screen phone). Not so good with a silicone gel phone protector fitted which has a slippery finish and I lost the phone a few times. I overcame this by sticking a 1mm thick strong magnet above the sticky pad and putting another inside the protector. Overall I'm very impressed.
Good Item with a big BUT.....read if you want a window mount
Read this if your phone is more than 10cm long and you want to use a window mount position.

Unless you have an almost vertical windscreen this will not work because the connecting arm is so short the phone cannot stand upright.

I have tried it in two different SUV's and three saloon cars and none will allow a window mount with the phone in the vertical position.
The worst ever.
Has been two weeks after I put it in my car . This is it. Rubbish It's not stick any more.
Very happy with product
Items arrived today 7.1.2017, order placed on 15.12.2016? Consider that a quick delivery time for the Xmas/New Year holiday period here in NZ.
Just so neat and simple!
So many car phone holders have various jaws, claws and brackets to make a specific phone fit that they end up being ugly. The Genie v2, on the other hand is simplicity itself and all the better for it: Whatever model of phone you are using, it will not obscure any of the buttons or connections, you just end up with the phone apparently hanging in mid air in front of you! The red dot grips the back of the handset, at first maybe a bit too strongly, I once pulled it off, but it goes back where it belongs easily enough. Unlike many phone holders that I have had, the suction of the base of the Oliver has never came loose or fallen off.
I would strongly recommend this one above all others.
Simple ideas are best!
Having just bought a Sony Experia, I tried to sort through the minefield of different in car holders, worrying about which ones would leave the side buttons clear and still allow connection of the USB lead.
So many of them are ugly, with various claws, clamps, arms etc., so when I saw the Dash Genie v2 I was immediately taken with its simple, unfussy appearance.
At such a reasonable price, could it work as well as it looked?
The answer is yes, my phone just sits there and I have no worries about it slipping, having used it extensively recently. Speed bumps, winding country roads etc no problem!
Olixar Dash Genie - Good Value, takes a couple times to stick properly
Product is of good value, however, when assembled for first use, the adhesive bottom (which sticks to dash/ windscreen) kept un-sticking from the dash after a couple of minutes of holding the weight of my device (Sony Z5 Compact), meaning I was trying to re-apply to dash every few minutes, until I moved the Dash Genie to another spot on the dashboard - now appears to be more stable when in use!
Fantastic phone holder
Finally a phone holder I can trust,using the satnav on my phone now is so simple and doesn't end up on the floor and also talking on my phone hands free is an absolute dream,well done i will be buying more stuff from you,
Not as good as some reviews suggest
Firstly, the base only stays put if it sits on a very flat surface. Any curvature at all and it won't be happy. The sticky pad that holds your phone in place is also less than perfect, so the lack of any clamps on the side to hold the phone means it flies out of the holder on occasion.

However, when it does work it holds the phone fairly well, exhibiting good levels of stability on rough roads, making the screen easy to read.
super sticky!
Great little phone holder.. Really sticky pads for window and phone.

Good because it has a little shelf which makes it easier to manage when placing on and off all day.

As a temp truck driver I'm always moving from vehicle to vehicle so It's small, light volume makes it great for my over-stuffed work bag.

Excellent!
Great simple to use Universal in-car holder
Great simple to use Universal in-car holder for my iPhone 6 Plus, which the holder manages to cope with the size of!

Watch the sticky Holder for the phone back as this sticks like cement and can be difficult to get the off the Holder!!
Disappointed
Read through other users descriptions and purchased - didn't grip my car dash so pointless, if you have a Renault don't do it
Not good value
I found that the adhesive was not strong enough to stick to the car and it fell off with the phone
Not good value for my money and I would not purchase again
Secure
Holder is secure, sticks on a surface and stays there without worry. Only concern is the sticky part on which the phone rests on itself, it loses it's stickiness fast but the actual holder which rests on the car/surface itself is high quality.
Excellent item
Very pleased with our purchase. Works excellently on textured dashboard. Great suction. Would highly recommend.
Not as good as it should be
I like the idea of this but unfortunately the "sticky gel" came out of the holder (stuck to the phone case). It is essentially not much use to me now although I can press the gel back into the holder, it comes out each time I remove the phone.
I had previously used the iBolt iProDock 5 which worked very well, but now with an iPhone 6s and LifeProof case the iBolt doesn't open wide enough to hold the phone when in it's case.
Excellent product
Very pleased with our purchase. Very good suction and works very well with a textured dashboard.. Would highly recommend.
Good holder
I want to give a gift this holder for my sister who was a birthday
Awsome
Purchased as a replacement for my old one that broke after many years of good service.
As it states easily portable from vehicle to vehicle which is great if like me you hire vans/cars for work. Grips all dashboards that I have used it in. Holds my note 3 when using it as a sat nav with no problems.
Useless
Supposed to be a dash mount. Does not stick to dash. Xperia z3 just falls off mid drive. Horrible
Value for money
I recently bought my Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder and am very pleased with it. It is very easy to install and holds the phone securely in either the vertical or horizontal position. The phone can also be twisted to enable easier viewing. It will be interesting to see how long the sticky spot lasts. I consider this product great value for money.
waste of money for a big phone
Sticks well to windscreen and to the phone but bracket does not come out far enough from the windscreen so the phone can stand up straight. Also the the bracket is too weak and when driving the phone shakes left to right like a nodding dog
recommended
After a short time of use I feel, that the product fits well for it's purpose. It us easy to install. I used a little contact glue to make sure the holder doesn't disengage. I can recommend the product.
Great product
I purchase this in car holder to hold my Blackberry Passport. I wanted something easy to use and with abaility to be movabel from one car to the other. I am very pleasedwith it. It holds my Blackberry Passport in place wiht no problem (and it is a heavy device compare to a normal mobile phone). The ratary ball mean you can angle it the way you want 360 which is great. Really pleased with it.
Highly impressed
The most convenient mobile holder I've used so far. The build quality us also above par. Don't think I would wanna try out anything else from now on.

Not good for Subaru windscreen
The profile of my Subaru windscreen won't allow my iPhone6plus fit into this mount. Don't buy for iPhone6plus it's too small.

No Good
The suction pad that attaches to the dashboard is very good but the red adhesive area that holds the phone fails after a few minutes. Vibration results in loss of adhesion and connecting a power lead also causes the phone to leave the holder. I'm looking for an alternative but suspect I'll have to consider Brodit again despite the cost.
sticks like glue - very adjustable
Great little holder. It can come off the dash after extreme heat but is easy to put back, I usually clean and wet the sucker. I leave it situated on the dash permanently. I thought it had lost its 'stickiness' - the red gel which the devise is held on by, but contacted MobileFun and they told me to wash it with a spot of washing up liquid and it's back in service. The red gel area does start to look a little untidy/dirty after a long while and I haven't managed to clean it. Overall it's great and I'm buying another for my 2nd vehicle.
Excellent mobile holder
This mobile holder works very well. I was a bit sceptic before I got it if it would attache to the surface, but it does.
Dash Genie for iPhone
Great product. It was easy to put together and attach to the dash.
Works well
Great product... no cumbersome sliding side clamps and foam pads. Works via sticky pad and bottom lip. Sticks well to textured dashboard too.

Excellent
I have tried a number of different phone/satnav holders over time, but this one is the best I have used. It,s piece of cake to set up And I have tried it on the dash in different positions including on curved section,no problem. I am using it to hold an iphone5 using GPS software. The other thing is it hardly wobbles, unless it is very rough road.All in all this is brilliant piece of kit and good value, which I would reccomend.
Great idea BUT
My Galaxy S3 kept falling off, or the whole thing fell off, so not good. Would be ok with a small light phone.
phone holder
I find this holder very strong as I have samsung 5s and it holds it very firmly

Sleek and stylish
Very satisfied with this purchase. Looks great, fits perfectly, and allows for easy attachment and removal my phone. Sticks with good adhesion directly to the dash, it's been a couple of weeks now and it hasn't looked like coming away.

Phone fallen off so many times - dangerous product
I use my Samsung S5 as my sat-nav and need something sturdy to keep it in place - my phone has fallen off this holder SO MANY TIMES when navigating. Very frustrating and dangerous when on a motorway and my phone has fallen off. Now ordered the Kenu Airframe instead.
A v good product......
........for your car, but when off road driving the phone can become disconnected from the holder. The harsh ride which caused this is way beyond anything which should be encountered when driving on tarmac.
Good buy
Sticks to the dashboard like a limpet! A little problem with the phone mount as my phone kept falling off after about 20 mins. I was mounting the phone in portrait and then turning through 90 deg to get landscape operation for a satnav app. When I put the phone in landscape first, so that the cradle clips were at the bottom, the phone stayed in place. The picture on the back of the product packaging appears to show the cradle in a horizontal position when in use.
A true dash genie
this is the best holder I've tried, it stays on the dash, it's not big so doesn't obstruct your view, will hold a small to medium or a light weight large phone, needs a larger sticky pad to hold a heavier phone, my HTC one m8 stays put in portrait position but falls off in landscape positio hence only 4 stars , I'm very pleased with the dash genie.
Great product
Does exactly what it said it would do & even holds the IPhone 6 plus.
not very good
I have a corsa, and this phone holder will not stick any were on my dash, I will be looking for a different one.
What more could you want?
The money you pay for this is ridiculous, you try and find a universal clamp that takes such a variation is sizes let alone you don't actually have to clamp it. It does exactly what it says in the description and holds your phone secure at a ridiculously low price. Highly recommended
Dash Genie v2 Universal in-Car holder
Just what I wanted to hold my Galaxy S2. Work's a treat!

The best phone holder i'e ever bought.
Excellent product which i guarantee you wont be disappointed with. I was a bit worried that the phone wouldnt be that secure but after living with it for a week i'm absolutely made up with it. My Z3 is a big phone but its rock solid on the Dash Genie which is mounted on a curved part of my dashboard so its really unobtrusive. Top product.
Dash genie
What a great product ,works a treat & does exactly what it says on the tin.Would highly recommend item & mobile fun for the prompt service
Should have known better than to buy cheap
Dashboard Genie looks good and is a neat size. Mounted it with my smart phone on the clean dust free car dash and off we went driving into the sunshine. Thirty minutes later the contraption fell off the dashboard. I then held it in my hand by the stem, while using the phone as satnav. Then the phone fell out of the cradle. I do not think the adhesive and suction are strong enough.
Great
Works really well and a great price.

Works really well and a great price.
Excellent holder
Exactly what I was looking for. It sticks easily to the dash (and can be removed just as easily), the phone sticks tightly, and it swivels for the best viewing position. Great price and only a week to deliver to my rural location in Australia. Highly recommended if you want a holder that has a low impact on your car, holds tight and doesn't leave a smear on your windscreen.

great dashboard phone mount.
Easy to fit, easy to use. Works great with my HTC one in its Otterbox case.
Wish I'd bought one earlier...
This simple device is perfect. Sits neatly on my dashboard and holds my larger than average mobile, Nokia 625 securely in place, does not fall out over bumps or when I swerve or go around corners. Sticky pad really holds tight. I can turn it to help me use my phone as a Sat Nav. When my daughter used my car, she poped her iPhone on and was so impressed, she wants one. I can view screen really well and tilt as needed. Can charge phone whilst it sits tight on this device. Worth the money and arrived very quickly... Don't laugh but thinking of getting one to use on my office desk :-) !
In place in a dash!
I use this with my Apple S4 phone. Really pleased with this piece of kit. Effortlessly easy to fit and does exactly what it says. No movement, no sticky residue and can be used in portrait or landscape. One very happy customer.
Finally!
At last a car mount that works. Sticks like cement to a dashboard, although it shakes a little, this is the car's suspension's problem not the holder. On the windscreen this baby is perfect. Really impressed.
