Compact and Inexpensive, with Few Shortcomings

This is a very ingeniously designed and versatile car smartphone mount. It is very compact, and at first I was skeptical about the suction cup's ability to attach securely to the windshield. However, a simple twist of the dial was all it was needed to attach it. Furthermore, I've left it attached for a few days used it with my iPhone 4S during that time, and it had remained firmly stuck to the windshield. However, there are a few things that I've noticed that you might want to consider. iPhone is a fairly light device, and that probably helps with preventing the cup from detaching. Also, I have not had the best experience with attaching this holder to anything but smooth, clean glass surfaces. It also probably helps that I am using it during the mild California winter - in my experience with other suction cups and windshield mounts they tend to come off in summer or really cold winter weather.

The smartphone holding area is very versatile and can hold most smartphones that are available today. I would not try it with Galaxy Note or an even larger device, but short of that it should work well for most smartphones.

The range of positions that you can put your smartphone in is one of this mount's greatest features. You can practically adjust it for almost any viewing angle, and it's relatively easy to adjust these angles while you are driving.

The biggest shortcoming of this mount is its extension. It is a very small mount, and it will keep your smartphone very close to the windshield. This is problematic for two reasons. First, the visibility of the smaller smartphone screens will be diminished to the point of being useless. This could potentially be a safety hazard. Second, it may not be possible to extend the charging cord all the way to the smartphone from the cigarette lighter plug. This could prove particularly problematic during the longer drives.

If you are looking for an easy and convenient "backup" smartphone mount, then this little guy might be just what you would want to get. It's compact, versatile, and holds firmly to the windshield. However, for longer trips or if you rely on a GPS device daily then you might want to get a more robust mount.
