Similar magnetic phone holder is trading in Amazon.in for Rs. 950!
I have a few doubts here.
1. Doesn't the magnet attached to the back cover bulge a little? Doesn't it feel out of place? The stickers in other products appear a lot slimmer and blend with the surface
2. Here the magnet is being attached to the phone while in other brands it is a metallic plate(magnet attached to car). Will the magnet getting attached to the back cover all time pose any problem with the electronics of the phone ?
Anyway, this appears to be the cutest set up.

1. Yes. It does protrude out (by ~1cm) and looks awkward. But this is one compromise than having a traditional mobile holder in the car. Also, I've fixed this magnet on top of phone case. So I can use my phone without the case when I don't have to drive/ride.
2. Haven't used those. So, can't comment on it.

I was talking about these type- here, instead of magnet, metallic piece is attached to phone, magnet gets attached to the holder. Appears thin too.

Fellas, any good recommendations on waterproof iPhone 5s/ Nexus 5 phone holder for the motorcycle? Found a good on Amazon.com but they don't ship it to India.

I just ordered "Gear X Premium Design Multi Fitting Heavy Mobile Holder For Dash And Windscreen" from flipkart. The design looks durable and good for large phones (I have a oneplus one). Will post an update once I have received it and tested it.

I was looking for a dashboard mount and don't want to fix it on the windshield and thereby, after wasting lot of time on search and money on other devices, I bought this Smart fish monster grip. The product is very good in holding my GPS and fixed this on my flat dashboard surface. I am not sure whether this can be fixed on the non-flat dashboard surface.

Pros
  • Very sturdier.
  • Good Plastic quality.
  • Good suction.
  • Grip is excellent.
  • Can be fixed both on the dashboard as well as on the windshield.
  • 360 degree rotation.
  • Looks compact.

Cons
  • It needs an effort to remove my GPS device. I prefer a clip sort of mechanism for the removal of devices.

Overall, I am very much satisfied with the product and it serves my requirement very well.

Hi, yes I managed to install it yesterday. The overall pack comes with 3 options.
1. AC vent duct
2. Small windshield / dashboard conventional mount
3. A longish angled mount (which helps if you want the dash free)

The best part is that the grip sticks to the dash (photo coming up). The grip is pretty strong and it was able to hold a oneplus one pretty effortlessly through the craters of mumbai. I still have to figure out the best position for the holder though.

The only thing to keep in mind is that it has many small parts and its quite easy to misplace.

Overall stability and grip is good and it serves the purpose completely. Happy with this product.

There are some pretty good ones at: http://www.sbkstore.in/accessories/g...ne-mounts.html. Expensive though, but the products look well made and sturdy. I am looking to purchase one for my bike as well and my search led me to this site.

I am planning to buy "Amkette Car Mount S80X Capio (Black)" for my Moto X.
The cost is Rs 899/- in flipkart.

Basically, I need a sturdy mount which will not fall of easily. If any other better options are there within Rs 1000/-, please suggest me the same.

Anyone who has used this specific model, please let me know your experience.

Thanks,
Rajat
