Comprehensive Review of Different Types of Cellphone Mounts.
This Spigen magnet is both a love and hate. I love that it allows me to quickly Mount my phone without the need to fiddle with a claw-type mount. The reason I'm giving this Spigen a 1 star is because the build quality is very poor. It pains me to say this because I've been buying Spigen products for years and have always loved them. But I have to say Spigen must have dropped the ball with this product. I just purchased 2 of this magnet today which would bring my total purchased for the last year to 8. The magnet works fine for a few months or less but then starts to break. The mechanism that holds the magnet front to the pinch fingers on the back breaks after a short while. And when it breaks the magnet front will start spinning freely so when you mount your phone it cannot stay upright instead it will swivel. Spigen needs to have it's engineers look at this issue. This issue has happened to literally every single one of Spigen magnets I've purchased before. I just bought 2 today and unless Spigen corrects the design flaw I will not buying Spigen magnets again after the 2 I just bought breaks in the near future.
After repetitive adjustments & removal, the grips broke from the mount. The IPhone 6plus seemed to be too much weight for the vent and the mount couldn't compensate this weight, so constant adjustment was needed. The size and portability is convenient, but repetitive removal weakened the grips and they eventually came apart from the mount. (Displayed in pics) After about 2 weeks, the mount is useless.
I bought this is anticipation of my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 arriving 9/4/17. Obviously a large sized and heavy phone. I tested it with my work phone (I'm a veterinarian who does house/farm calls at least two days a week so GPS navigation/Google Maps, invoicing, etc all done on the phone). The phone is an older large android phone in an enormous, bulky, and heavy otterbox 2 piece case. The work vehicle is a late model Honda Element. We have broken about 4 car mount phone holders in the past month, the other two barely fit the width of the phone in the case and the phone would unexpectedly explode out of the clips at us. I placed the rectangular magnetic sticker on the inside of the outer portion of the case. I mounted the mount on the air vent with ease. It feels extremely sturdy. The swivel and customization ability of the mount is great but it helps that you can use the screw portion to tighten it down into position as well. It worked FABULOUSLY. Despite crappy PA roads, bumps, jerks, etc the phone never wobbled or wavered. The magnet is very strong, I attached the work phone while still in the office and violently swung and stabbed in up and down in the air and the phone never came off. This is so much easier to deal with then mounts that you need to two-handedly insert and remove the phone from. I know this will work amazing on the Note 8 and will post photos and a follow up shortly.
I have a Spigen case for the Galaxy S8+ that I use as my daily driver (with a huge Mophie juice-pack case reserved for long flights and the like) and so I already know they make quality gear. I was a little wary of buying this, having seen some of the reviews, but all I can say is that I'm more than happy I did. I opted for the blue item as it was a quid cheaper than the black, go figure; it's a smart, dark blue and is hidden away anyway once the phone is attached.
I've been known to use a few different methods for holding my phone in the car, and this is the best bar none... the magnets are really strong (too strong even?) so the phone isn't going anywhere. I got this in conjunction with a Spigen matte black slim case iPhone 6 Case, Spigen® [Non-Slip] [Perfect-Fit] iPhone 6 (4.7) Case Slim **NEW** [Fit Series] [Thin Fit] [Smooth Black] Premium SF Coated Non Slip Surface with Excellent Grip Matte Hard Case - ECO-Friendly Packaging - Slim Case for iPhone 6 (4.7) (2014) - Smooth Black (SGP10936) and this case has a dent inside to stick the metal plate on to, so you don't have to stick it to your phone, which is quite clever.
The system is perfect. You get two magnet stickers to put on your phone or in your phone case, nine times out of ten it can be hidden and won't effect the look or feel of your phone.
I usually really rate Spigen products which is why I had no hesitation paying double for what I've come to expect as being high quality goods. Very disappointed in this however. Fitted to an F30 3 series bmw, the holder is so heavy it bounces over bumps and slams up and down. So not only is the phone less secure, I was concerned that it would eventually damage the vent. I tried it at different height levels in the vent. It may suit vertical slats better for this reason but then, I'm not sure if that would cause it to move left to right more. Overall, disappointed. Returned for a refund and would not recommend.
I'm middle of the road with this one. It doesn't feel like it clips onto my air vent all that well and I constantly have to push it back in. I have a Note 8 and I'm sometimes worries it's going to fall off and damage the phone. The other thing I'm not happy about is the fact the magnetic plate you stick to your phone or in my case the back of my cover, it stops the wireless charging from working. Obviously the magnets interfere with it somehow. So it means having to take my case off and on to use my wireless charger.
I don't use this every day but when I do (usually on long journeys) it has worked as expected. The magnet is strong and holds my Pixel 2 securely and tightly. The only issue I have is that because it is attached to the vent it can sometimes become loose, nothing that can't be fixed by tightening it somewhat. For average use like mine it works great.
Now this was a product that I had mixed reviews about to begin with I thought it was amazing the magnetic was really strong between the two I could put the phone on the stand and it would not move at all but as the weeks went by and the connector that clips onto the air vent of the car started to dwindle it went from being a strong grip to something that was quite lacking in strength over a six-month period unfortunately I no longer able to use the attachment
Little more expensive than some of the cheaper versions you'll find on eBay, but definitely worth paying the extra money! It comes with a metal plate the same size as the magnet that can be stuck to the back of a phone or the inside of a phone case, and the magnet is very strong and keeps the phone in place even when going over bumps and potholes, unlike some of the cheaper versions. If you're looking for a phone holder for your car then this is definitely worth a look!
Very strong magnet easily holds Iphone 6s Plus. Nice build. However very poor quality grip to car vent means it can often come off when phone is removed. Work ok with smaller phone and smaller magnetic stickers, but still can fall off if you accidentally touch it. I lost it already as it fell off, else would have returned for refund.
This is so much better than the round version of Spigens Car Vent Mounts. This holds my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 perfectly whilst driving. The ability to adjust the angle is really useful too as so many car vents are at funny angles these days.
Great product and magnet strong enough to hold phone with no problem and regardless of road condition. Small and discrete and does not interfere with use of air vents.
The main problem with this item is the plastic covering the parts which you push onto your car vent come off when you remove it. As a result you get these plastic bits fall into your car vent. I managed to lose one but get 2 out after the magnet was re positioned during the 1st installation. This should not happen and I ended up gluing the bits back on so I could use the magnet. I contact Spigen to return but was told I had to go though amazon which was too much of a pain to bother with.
I use a HTC One M8 and drive an Astra. The holder itself is surprisingly small, and unobtrusive so it fit into my vents with ease. The magnets are very powerful and keep the phone secure in place through any journey. It's so powerful in fact that you need two hands to get the phone off the holder.
This really does have a strong magnet. Once you get it right the magnet does hold your phone. I have used with iPhone 6 and 6S and its does its job. Little tricky making sure you put the holder into the correct slots on your heater vents but once done it is great little unobtrusive. I would think it would fit most cars. I have only tried in a Smart and Ford Mondeo.
I'm not saying this is badly built etc, but the issue only arose when I used it.
