This week got a simple but powerful gadget. One wouldn't think that I would spend hours researching on this topic. My problem was I needed something to hold my iPhone where it was easy to reach. It also had to be simple to use. Transferable between different cars. Not something I would miss if it broke or got stolen because it cost nearly the same as the mobile it holds.
Just by luck I came across iHold (Probably as iHold isn't what its brand name is, weird situation here). I liked it right away, the reviews on amazon really helped me know this was a good choice. I was only spending £8 ($17) but still wanted to make sure all worked as it should. Does the suction work well (no dropping off after sometime), does it cold the phone as it should, am I able to move the phone viewing angle so I get the best view while driving!
I use my iPhone in the car for everything... Navigation, Radio, Music and taking and receiving calls. The iHold really looked the real deal for me. When it arrived got it out and did the first obvious test does it really hold the phone as the picture shows? Due to its holding hands being curved. To my delight it did. It was also such a solid grip the iPhone was not going anywhere quick, once in its vice like grip.
The red rubber strips that hold the iPhone are pretty, give the iHold a cool look feel. The suction cup works perfectly. Once attached to the window it's like it was meant to be there. The whole unit is just solid even though it's made of plastic. The device does wobble either so no trying to touch a moving target when driving.
My only gripe is even though the you can move the holder viewing angle its very limited which means you have to make sure you have the right adjustment before sticking onto the window. I had to take it off a few time to try different options.
Over all I am very happy with this cool find!
You can find it here on Amazon UK.
