Â I have always liked the phone holders from IOTTIE and have always looked forward to new releases as Iottie seems dedicated to improving on their design and functionality with each new release.The reasons I like this Smart Phone Holder is a pretty long list but I will try to condense it down to those things that really seem to set this smart phone holder apart for me.One of the biggest reasons I like this Smart Phone holder is how well it holds to the dashboard or windshield I have found that using the small disc that is included in the package, I am able to install the Smart Phone holder on the slightly curved part of the dashboard and it still holds exceptionally well. And because of the way the “arm” telescopes in or out, I can make sure the phone is easily reachable regardless of where I install the Iotti Smartphone holder.Flexibility – what I mean by this is that with this Smart Phone holder there are many different ways you can setup the phone holder to work in virtually any situation – it telescopes longer than previous versions which helps bring the phone closer to you while driving – improving your view of the phone. You can adjust the arm up or down to place the phone in the best position for you -Consistent Quality – Iottie seems to always use the best materials and design when putting their smart phone holders together – and make it easy to put your phone into or remove your phone from the Smartphone holder quickly and easily.This new smart phone holder has added a magnet at the bottom of the main piece that holds the phone which allows you to put the USB cord you use for charging the phone and the magnet will hold it when you leave the car, making it easier to find the USB cord when you are ready to plug it in the next time you are going out for a drive.The Best Quality, the best design, the firmest hold, it all adds up the making this the best car phone holder I have used. Background info:I bought the Easy One Touch 4 in the fall of 2018 because of its features and price. I still use the original because it still works and nothing ground-breaking has come out–all it needs to do is hold a phone. The only problem I had with the Easy One Touch 4 was the adhesive coming off after a few months, but I was able to get a replacement [via RMA] in a few days. I’ve bought the Easy One Touch 4 several more times for family and friends based on the price/performance ratio and the after sale support. I wanted to see if the Easy One Touch 5 had made any major improvements, so I went ahead and ordered it.Packaging:The packaging is roughly the same, although the sizing chart had been removed and the stock image now shows the mount being used in a “luxury” vehicle; this tells me that the company is trying to move upstream [which is fine], but outside of Lyft/Uber, I don’t think most people would use a phone mount if their car already hasinfotainment/GPS built in. The packaging does look nicer and the color palette remains the same. The font has also appeared to change, but I doubt anyone cares much about the packaging except for environmentally conscientious individuals. Every component inside receives its own bag–this is likely to prevent dust and/or damage to the adhesive. Aside from fully sealing the outermost box, this is the best option. The manual contains multiple languages and instructs on how to adjust the newest feature; a magnetic charging cable holder; more on this later.First Impressions:The piano gloss black has been removed in favor of a less fingerprint prone matte black and the “push panel” has been upgraded to a more subdued and trim less soft-touch rubber. The push panel, which is used to automatically retract the arms, no longer bears the brand name, but gains a texture. This design choice is intelligent becauseit lowers tooling cost and looks more premium–something the packaging is also trying to convey. All rubber grips have been slightly altered to provide a surface with more grip and depth to help hold a phone securely. I did not have any issues with devices falling out, but it is good to see.More Details:The suction cup and tab mechanism is largely unchanged and intuitive; no reason to fix what already works. As a side note, the instructions clearly state a “curing” time and temperature to mount the base and arm. If you do not adhere to the instructions, the adhesive will not form a strong bond and may fall off. Additionally, if you have a car where the dashboard is made of rubber or has been recalled for something like UV degradation (google car dashboard melting recalls), you may have an issue with the adhesive regardless–this isn’t to say it won’t work, but if you have a mid-2000s Toyota Camry and park in the sun, you might find that the suction cup has melted.The Magnetic Cord Organizer:Inside the box you will see a small black strip of rubber with 2 magnets on opposite ends [similar shape to a Breathe Right strip]. This is to wrap around your charging cable so it doesn’t fall away between your chair and center console or anywhere else you wouldn’t want it to fall. There is enough clearance for most phones and cases for the cable to rest in a neutral place and everyone I’ve showed it to did not have any issues using it with their phone.Changes:The arm now extends an additional 3 inches (8 total) in case you have a very long dashboard or want your phone to be as close to you as possible. The tension mount on the back of the device is now thicker, stronger, and has better quality threading–it is easier to work with when compared to last year’s model. The feet are still adjustable, but the position of the feet is no longer controlled by a dial; the same piece of plastic used to hold the magnetic cord organizer can now be pushed (gently) towards to user and moved up or down depending on the height of the phone.Notes:There are wireless charging variants of this device, but I feel that the cost increase is not worth it–you still have to touch your phone to mount it, it takes 3-5 seconds to plug in your phone and the cable will already be directly underneath the mount.TL;DR Its the best car mount available [that I am aware of] in its price bracket. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Â The phone bracket – the part that matters, as it holds your $1,000 investment in place – is incredibly solid. No amount of vibration could shake it loose out of the bracket. (see video). The mount bar and sticky pad haven’t been tried yet, but I’m far less worried about them. I’ll update the review once I install the mount into the car with the included sticky pad and suction cup. At this point – 5+ stars; I’ve never had a mount this solid, with the capability to display the phone in portrait or landscape mode.The Car Mount:Simple to install, excellent design and easy to use. Very flexible, solid, sticks well to the provided pad. Easily adjustable height, reach, angle and orientation. Magnetic cord holder is kind of a gimic – just as easy to wrap the cable around the mount. Still very impressed with the whole package.Details:Made from solid, reinforced plastic. Not going to shear off during anything resembling normal use.Side grip bars do NOT touch any buttons, unlike most other mounts I’ve seen.Easy to release with a single squeeze.Easy to insert – just press and the wide side bars snap shut.Fits Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in a thick case.Does not cover any of the cameras. Yes, you can use this as a mount to video from your car. This is too tall to fit the Pixel 4a. The previous model, the One Touch 4 DOES fit the 4a, so get that instead of this model. Otherwise it hits the volume down button when you dock it and you can’t hear anything on your phone. I exchanged this for the previous model. Otherwise I’m sure it’s great for other phones.The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable . please observe that you just won t be able to reuse an adhesive mount when you take away it. with One-Touch Design Compatible iPhone Xs,XS MAX,XR,X,8,8Plus,7,7Plus,6,6Plus Galaxy S7,8,9,10 Mpow Car Phone Mount Google Nexus Red Dashboard Car Phone Holder Washable Strong Sticky Gel Pad,MPCA032ER,Mpow Car Phone Mount, Dashboard Car Phone Holder, Washable Strong Sticky Gel Pad with One-Touch Design Compatible iPhone Xs,XS MAX,XR,X,8,8Plus,7,7Plus,6,6Plus, Galaxy S7,9,10, Google Nexus, Red,Mpow.
