This genuine Samsung cradle does the job & has fairly good build quality. There is however some vibration whilst driving in both portrait and landscape modes.
The biggest concern I have with all suction mount cradles is they are all prone from time to time to falling off the windscreen. Whilst they all tend to work on a vacuum type system this has the inherent drawback of being prone to failure due to temperature changes, inevitable in a car environment.
The consequences of this are obvious, your lovely shiny, expensive phone could get smashed are damaged when it falls! Not ideal.
I've kept the cradle but would prefer a more professional stable system. Not everyone is as fussy as me and i can see why so many reviewers are happy with the product.
It works and hold the phone snugly, and would accommodate many other phones with or without cases which is a plus. However in use, one of the bottom prongs that supports the phone obstructs the headphone socket on a galaxy S6, which i use to play music from. The only solution i can see is to cut one of them off.
As a Samsung product i would expect them to product a car holder that is compatible with all of their products and allows use of all of the ports while in use, even if they had a separate adapter for each phone i would go for that
Sticks to the windscreen well, have not had it fall off yet. Also when the clips are tightened the phone is held snugly with no chance of it falling out while driving.
Does the job, but i expect better from the OEMs product.
Works great for the Note 4, even when it has the flip case attached. That's what I wanted, as i don;t want to have to swap the case and original back every time I stop and start car use. Would be nice if it was sold with an air vent alternative or additional mount too, but the windscreen suction pad works just fine. It's very strong. They do provide a stick-on base, which the suction cup can then be used on instead of the windscreen, which I guess I could use on the vents if I wanted. The Galaxy Note 4 is a big phone - so I was looking specifically for something that could (s) handle its size (b) be strong enough for it's weight and (c) meant I wouldn't need to remover the flip case. I think this is just the job.
Looks great and the quality is good,but 4 stars because I can not use my earphones when it is on the stand,the hole is covered.By the why I am using it on Samsung S6 edge Excellent product. Stays in place and does not move or shake when the car is in movement. I even use it with the folded cover. I'm about to buy another one as a present for a friend. The best phone car holder I've ever had. Recommended
Works well for all of the phones we have used in it, s9+ and iphone 6 and 7. The pad for the dashboard was rubbish though, would any stay stuck. Prefer it on the glass anyway and it hasn't fell off yet.
