Honestly, I was really skeptical about the quality and functionality of this mount because of the price but let me tell you...I am shocked. No wonder this thing has such a great rating. Go ahead and buy a few while you're at it. I have 3 of them in each of my cars. It holds my phone no matter the orientation and I haven't had an issue with the phone slipping at all. My only issue so far has been the tightening screw that adjusts the orientation but I figured that it was my fault. I tightened the screw pretty tight but was scared to overtighten it because it's plastic. Vibration cause the screw to come a bit loose and the phone flopped around. I tightened it pretty tight the second time and haven't had an issue since. Go ahead and buy it. I researched a few mounts before buying this and compared the reviews...this was the definite winner.
This phone holder is very nice (so nice that I ordered a second one for our other car). It holds onto the vent reasonably well (you might want to check it every week or so to make sure that it's not slipping off), it's easy to install and remove, and it hold the phone securely from three directions. The bottom shelf is particularly nice (my former holder did not have one, and the phone would slip down and sometimes out of the holder, and the side holders have both friction fit and small lips to hold the phone in place.It replaces a phone holder that sticks to the windshield. Although there are advantages to that--easier to see--it was not good for (my) Android phones, which tend to overheat when used as GPSs. Because this holder mounts on an air vent, it's easy to keep the phone cool.
A great buy at a great price! I've gone through several similar pieces. None made it to a great rating. Finally found what we were looking for. Easy to take your phone on and off. It's sturdy, not cheap feel, it's good quality! Easy to take off with one hand. Not too much weight for the air vent (I was concerned about this) but not a problem!
