Name Mpow air vent car mount

Price Β£7.99

What Car? says...

Rated 4 out of 5

This air vent holder is good quality and very stable – offering support on the side and base without restricting access to the charging port – and it’s good value too. The ball and socket hinge has a good range of movement but it can be quite fiddly when tightening and loosening it.

Name iOttie Easy One Touch 3

Price Β£24.99

What Car? says...

Rated 2 out of 5

This phone mount offers solid stability and an easy one-handed mounting system. It does, however, come with a hefty price tag that isn't entirely justified considering the quality of competitors. The suction cup gets a very sticky gel pad, which is great for keeping it in place but not so great for taking it off. Comes with a one-year warranty.

Name Olixar inVent

Price Β£6.99

What Car? says...

Rated 4 out of 5

Brilliantly simple and pocket-sized, with a sleek and stealthy design that will be unnoticeable on your dashboard. It is small but has extendable arms to fit just about any smartphone, even with a case. Being an air vent holder, it doesn’t have a tilt function, but it does offer 360deg rotation so the phone can be viewed in landscape or portait mode. For a simple, does-what-it-says-on-the-tin phone holder at a great price, this takes some beating. Includes a two-year warranty.

Name iOttie iTap Magnetic

Best price Β£21.95

What Car? says...

Rated 3 out of 5

Attaching a magnetic strip to the back of your phone might not be everyone’s preference; but if you are happy to do so, then this iOttie holder is one of the best around. The magnetic strip, which doesn’t damage your phone in any way, can either be attached directly to the back of the device or stored between the phone and the case. The holder has a small ball and socket joint that allows you to move the phone around when it is mounted. It is quite pricey for something so small, but it feels high in quality and comes with a one-year warranty.
