      Grip mechanism is garbage - otherwise great

      This wasn't my first choice. I picked this item without reading about it because the one I wanted was not in stock despite the app saying it was. But that's another story. The attachment to the window is very strong and employs a great mechanism making attachment easy and secure and release is also easy. The flexible neck holds position well under the weight of my iPhone 6S+ even with a case. (Unit instructions indicate no case is to be used but it worked fine with a case). However, while driving an SUV down the highway there is a noticible bit of shaking but not enough to make GPS/maps difficult to see (though you couldn't and SHOULDN'T text with it because of this). The grip sides are adjustable and have a flexible rubber coating to really grip the phone even with an otterbox case. However, the grips adjust outward using a push-button attached to a small plastic complex gearing mechanism. Once you extend the sides by repeatedly pressing the button to spin the internal gears you have to press the sides inwards until the phone is gripped. I think the tension put on the gears when you grip your device creates too much strain for the fine plastic gears and mine stripped on the first day after several uses. Now when I press the button the sides no longer extend. I have to repeatedly press the button while trying to expand the sides manually until the gears engage. Eventually at some point the gears completely disengage (indicating they are stripped I think) and I can open and close the mechanism without the locks engaging. Conversely, when I press the sides in to grip they do not lock unless I manage to engage the gears agin by technique of button pressing, jamming, squeezing and shaking the device. I am returning this garbage. A spring loaded mechanism would hold better in my opinion.

      Great for my phone, okay for some

      Got this mount for my 2014 Moto X. I do not use a phone case. Out of three or four mounts I tried at Best Buy, this one seemed to grab my phone best/with the least effort and was actually also the least expensive so I am satisfied with it. I use the suction cup mounted to my windshield, which also has been fine so far (about 4 weeks) and has not shown any loss of suction due to heat or vibrations/bumps. The mount does cover the volume buttons on my phone (on the side), which may annoy some users but has not been an issue for me since I connect my phone to the car via bluetooth if I want to use it for music/phone/GPS while driving. This way I can change the car volume instead. As someone who occasionally enjoys a fast turn, I can say the ball joint pivot of the mount seems adequately stationary when tightened, and this was important to me when choosing a mount. I imagine this mount could accommodate any current smartphone, potentially with the exception of a Galaxy Note or iPhone 6 Plus, but even those might be okay. In addition to gripping from the sides, the mount also has small fold-out ledges on the bottom, so it is unlikely a phone would fall out unless the side grips have poor contact with your phone and you hit a large bump. I will note two negatives I have found to this mount: 1) I have also used an iPhone 6 with a hard plastic rounded case, and while the mount still works, it does not grip this phone as well. 2) The release mechanism for the mount does have a cheap feel to it, and I am not sure how long it will last before some plastic part breaks. I have to select yes or no for whether I would recommend this to a friend, but really I would recommend it to a friend *depending on their phone* and would suggest if possible that they try it in store first.

      Reasonably priced mobile phone car mount

      For $20 you cannot find a better solution for mounting your mobile phone in your car. I tried one in my car and liked it enough to get one for my wife's car as well. I like the flexibility that permits the mount to be placed wherever you like it to be. You can easily move if from spot to spot on any glass surface. It is flexible enough to hold small phones like old school iPhones and larger phones like iPhone 6 PLUS. You can mount your phone in portrait or landscape mode, and change any time you like. There are two things I don't like that prevent me from rating this as a 5 star item: (A.) The extended arm that holds the phone does move up and down as you hit bumps in the road, so your phone will jiggle a bit. (B) I find it sometimes difficult to get my iPhone to be held firmly in the rubberized jaws. They open easily but close only when you depress two buttons simultaneously. If you change out phones of different sizes all the time this may be a hassle. Since I use the same iPhone 6 Plus all the time, I tend to leave the jaws in the position that is JUST tight enough for me to wiggle my phone into place in the rubber holders that line the jaws of the device. If I actually open it wide and try to close on the phone, the jaws don't always lock tight and the phone will fall out. But since I don't change the jaw openings, that is not a problem.

      Works well enough

      I purchased this around product around May and it lasted until this month (November). I would have rated this higher, had I not realized some of the hassles I went through with this product after trying out a different cell phone holder. It worked well enough, but I found myself always messing with the button that releases the clamp (holding the phone) to make it wider. You have to keep clicking it until the mechanism catches and then it pushes the clamp apart. If you have it laid out horizontally, sometimes you pull your phone out and and the clamp closes a bit, making it an ordeal to put your phone back on it if you do this while driving. It finally broke after on a cold morning (about 30F) for whatever reason the suction released from the windshield and I couldn't get it to stay after multiple attempts. After 10 minutes of trying repeatedly and wiping the windshield over and over it finally stuck to the windshield. I then attempted to adjust the phone holder and the plastic snapped, breaking off the holder itself. Until it broke I hadn't thought about the amount of time I wasted messing with the device and my phone every day. Please note I was using the phone as navigation in a horizontal fashion; perhaps having it vertical is less of a hassle. I find it to be on the lower average price/quality end. I gave it three stars because it does what it says it's meant to do, and works well enough. Frankly, if you can spare the extra $15 I just spent on the Bracketron you will save yourself some annoyances.

      Great cell phone mount for my cell phone

      I originally purchased a cd slot mounted holder from another company to be used in my 2017 Chevy Traverse. In concept it was good but was not practical as it blocked the touch screen on the radio and did not stay in the cd slot very well, it bounced a bit too much. So I set out to replace it with one that mounted on the windshield or air vent and was a bit sturdier. Best Buy had exactly what I needed. This holder comes with a suction cup for the windshield or an air vent clip. Since I was concerned about the phone blocking my view of the road with the suction cup option I decided to used the vent mounted feature. With in minuted I installed it in the car and had it holding my iPhone, its sturdy and doesn't obstruct my field of vision. The deep rubber grips make it easy to load just about any cell phone including those with a Mophie battery. The release can be accomplished with one hand thanks to the push button release. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in hands free cell phone operation especially if your car has the blue tooth option.

      I use this product with a Samsung S4 Active and over all have had a good experience with it. There are a couple issues that prevent me from saying that this item is "great". First, the ribs that hold the phone in place can make it a little tricky to get the phone clamped in properly. It takes a little finesse and the use of two hands is a must. My preference would to be have smooth surfaces to clamp against the phone rather than the rubber grooves, this would make insertion much easier. Second, the clips that hold the phone to the air vent are difficult to operate. There are no tabs on the spring loaded clamps so it takes a little effort and perhaps a couple of tries to get them locked onto the vent properly. Once they're on, they hold well but there were a few frustrating moments getting to that point. The window mount is a great option but personally that puts the phone a bit far away to see well. I use this for GPS purposes so the air vent option is a better choice for me. Over all, I would recommend this item to someone who is looking for an inexpensive way to mount their cellphone in their car. It works well once you get past the initial frustrations.

      A good, basic, budget-friendly mount

      While the construction and materials of this Insignia mount leave a bit to be desired, for consumers who don't have the big bucks to shell out for top-of-the-line accessories (i.e., me) I would say it's definitely Good Enough. This mount does what I need it to do, which is hold my phone snugly (thanks to its adjustable grippy arms and its foam-lined back panel) in a convenient location above my car's radio and controls, and I will say it has held up for over a year now of constant use (though I haven't had to adjust the grippy arms very much since I first got it, so it's basically just sat in the same place clipped to one of my vents the whole time). All in all, it's a decent phone mount that gets the job done, and for what I paid, I can't say I'm dissatisfied.

      Does the job, suction cup lasts two years

      This is a repeat purchase, once the same manufacturer, one another brand. This works well, easy to mount below the mirror and adjust for a non glare view without blocking visibility out of the window. This model has a bonus, a clip mount that goes on an air vent vane. The part that grabs the phone unclips to move it to the other mount It does block airflow but I must say I like this location better. As I had this brand before, I saved the phone mount. So, I have two locations to put my phone, helpful for guests or to hold an iPod. As the the phone holder, I prefer my older one to this one. The clamps on this one are fatter and, to me, more difficult to snap the phone in. I may not have given it enough of a chance though. I do recommend! Note though, the suction cups wear out and after two to three years need to be replaced, something I really don't mind.
