      This is a perfect windshield mount cell phone holder. It took less than a minute to install and has been completely secure. It's got a suction cup with a little ratchet button that gets it fully suctioned in a matter of seconds. Once it's installed, you can swivel the phone holder for horizontal or vertical viewing. It has a bendy arm which stays where you put it so you can adjust the angle and height. It has arms with foam cushions to protect your phone. Those arms accept large phones (I have S8+, something like 6 inches) and once you click the arms around your phone, you're good to go. When you leave the car, there's a release button right behind the phone, which prevents accidental releases but is still easy to work once you've used it twice. While you're driving, there is some minor vibration, after all, it's hanging by a single arm from your windshield. But there's far less vibration than i excited and my phone is always readable. I used to have my phone tilted in a lower center console, which meant that when i need Google directions, i had to look away from my phone. Now it's up high under my rear view mirror, which feels much safer, as I'm looking inches to the side instead of down near the floor. Great price, looks like great quality, and it couldn't be easier both to initially install and to use everyday, that i wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I now have my phone up even for my daily commute, just in case of construction or accidents, because it's that easy and convenient. Please don't use it for anything other than maps. I know some of you are thinking of doing that. Don't do that. Hang in there a few more years, the self driving cars are coming. Until then, maps only!!! Sorry, off my soap box. This is a great product!

      Wayy too shaky and unstable 4 vehicle use

      This device was a good "idea" but not so much when it was placed in vehicle for use-Its flexible and good in that sense but having the flex arm it allows wayyy too much moving and shaking when your device is attached to the windshield of your car and its hard to focus on if your using it to follow gps from your phone or to read anything. I kept it hoping I could still use it somehow but it is kinda brutal on my smartphone with all the shaking so I can't leave my phone attached to it constantly when driving so if this is what you might be purchasing it for I don't really recommend it because its gonna have that annoying distracting movement no matter what kind of vehicle you drive luxury etc. Its worse if you are on a rough road. Even though a fixed arm isn't as convenient it eliminates that constant shake so I will be investing in the fixed holder for future use hated that because this one would have been quite useful. Also the release button for the suction cup is hard to manage and the release button for your device is in a very inconvenient place. Not a good option for any moving vehicle.

      Best one yet

      I've been reluctant to use a cell phone holder that holds the phone above the dash thinking it would obstruct my view so I tried the one that attaches to the vent but the phone was getting hot from the Heat or cold from the A/C (even if the vents were set to blow elsewhere). So I decided to try this one thinking it would mount better and be less messy than one sticking to my dash board. It's been a couple of weeks, so far so good. I mounted it right where my rear view mirror is so it hangs well below the mirror. I don't feel it obstructs my view and it's convenient for looking at my GPS without looking down. It hasn't fallen off once but it does have minimal shaking when going over rougher terrain (or torn up plowed Boston roads). I thought the spring loaded arms that go along the sides of the phone to hold it in place were broken but they weren't. There's a little green lever that you push to release your phone, sometimes you have to manual pull it out for it to work the next time you want to put your phone back in (minor inconvenience). There is also a little ledge you can pull out to go under your phone and help hold it in place, I didn't realize that at first as it held the phone fine without it. I'd recommend it.

      I like this phone holder. This is my second one that I have bought. It holds the phone firmly in the holder. The side supports have ratchet type adjustment and the release Works well. The long arm is very versatile for positioning. The release of the suction mount can be a little tricky. Make sure you release the suction cup button prior to removal. It holds the arm firmly in place. I bought the other holder Bestbuy carries. I didn't like the way it side supports work. It seems like it grips don't grab the phone firmly. It doesn't click into position like this model does. It does have a shorter and stiffer arm. But this limit's the adjustment you can make. I had issues with my dash and mirror clearances while my phone was plugged in for charging. I didn't need to use the vent supports. I'm not sure how good they would work. Well that's my take on this holder. Hopefully this will help you decide on your purchase. Good luck

      First, let me thank the Best Buy team member who recommended this product with only a brief description of what I wanted and issues I was having. It's for my wife and she has the iPhone 7 Plus with a Nodus Access case. The case is leather and the issue was that with my Kenu holder from Target, it only fit in the vent and the way my vents are setup in my Toyota Camry and Toyota Corrola is couldn't quite sit comfortably in the vent. I explained that the Kenu holder also didn't seem to quite grip the whole 7 Plus with this leather case wrapped around it. She immediately pointed this holder out. Funny thing was I was already researching other options around $34.99 and they seemed like they would go great. Alas, she came right to this and said, this will work perfect and she wasn't lying. Her phone easily.....easily fits within the wide grippers on the sides to hold her phone AND case. However, it's not overly bulky; it just simply holds in its position. Another great thing is that this piece has 'feet' to hold the bottom of the phone in a ''just in case' type scenario. I will add pics when I get some time but this would be 6 stars if I could choose that. Great job Bracketron and thank you to the team member who knew her stuff and made the best recommendation!

      Uber Gear

      Since I started with Uber, I needed to get something to hold my iphone in place safely to follow the navigation system. This was pretty cheap at $20 but it does the job quite well. Easy to put together as there are only two parts, the arm and the plate. Suction cup worked quite easily, sticking to the windshield without any trouble. I use an iphone 6 and the grip mechanism holds it in place rather well. I will say the ‘arms’ holding it in place are rather long, so depending on how you set it up, if its not perfectly facing you, those arms tend to get in the way and slightly block the view of part of the phones edges. This is more of an annoyance than an actual problem. Also, if the arm isn’t touching the dashboard, the unit tends to bounce a bit while driving if you’re on something other than a smooth road. Again, no so much a problem as an annoyance. I’m going to try and see if I can bend the arm to have it rest slightly on the dashboard and hopefully it’ll fix that. Removing the phone is also pretty easy. Release button on the back is easy to access and you can have your phone in your hands in a jippy. All in all, for $20 bucks, it does the job, no real complaints.

      Product experience put to rest my skepticism

      I have to admit I was skeptical about this one. But I needed a way to mount my Android-based GPS in a way that allowed me to glance at it and not fumble for my phone and hold it while driving. My concern? That with no support other than a suction cup that would seal this to the inside of my windshield, it would drop onto the floor at least every few hours. I bought it and immediately put it into service on a 6-hour drive. No problems. The next day - still no problems. Since owning it, it has not fallen off. And so based upon that alone, I was quite happy. The rest of the product is good quality. It helps to know where to reach for the quick-release when you have to park the car and take the phone. The clips are good quality and I did not need to extend the little platform that supports the phone from below - the side clips were enough. Positioning might be a concern - my LG V20 has a power button/biometric scanner on the back so I need to mount it a bit higher if I wish to have access to that. Well worth the money. I consider this essentially a safety device and as such I expect a certain level of quality, functionality and reliability - higher bars which this device has met.

      Bought this hoping for a fix to a simple problem, my previous $5 mount (different brand) which I bought elsewhere lasted for about two years until I upgraded to the 8 plus which was too wide. After purchasing this i became immediately annoyed... the goose neck jiggles with every slightest movement meaning the screen moves constantly. The clips on the side are supposed to ratchet when you push them snug to the phone, unfortunately the one I purchased only did so about half the time so putting the phone onto the mount became a hassle. Being someone who tries to stay positive and muster on, I exchanged this for the more expensive magnetic version.... the magnet isn’t strong enough to hold the iPhone 8+ and silicon case, so after awhile it slides off and falls. These mounts are a hair more expensive than others and are quite low in quality, they even feel a little cheap/rickety/not solid... I will be returning the magnetic mount and looking elsewhere.
