The very strong, temperature-controlled magnet in this mount works with thin and thick phone cases, without any damage to your phone. Cradle-free for ease of placing, using and removing with one hand. We like the lifetime tech support and 3-year warranty.

Easy, basic design allows portrait or landscape usage. 360-degree rotation. Strong magnetic pull holds phone in place even over bumps. Great customer service.
Some models may not clip firmly to vent pieces and may slide back and forth. Magnet on back of phone may interfere with the phone’s GPS and mapping capabilities.
Fully adjustable, landscape or portrait orientation, adjustable to different angles, universal device for all types of devices. Strong magnet and a fairly small, clean-looking design. Adhesive mount for surfaces so you aren’t stuck with sliding and movement that can happen with vent-mounted magnets.
Requires prep before usage many may skip, leading to inconsistent results. To mount properly, you must first clean and dry the area, make sure the dashboard is not too hot, tear off the film and hold the mount in place for several minutes so the adhesive can properly stick, as well as leave it for 24 hours before using.
