Post by: a good yeshiva bachur on July 14, 2019, 09:06:59 AM
Is the magnetic one better then the suction? is it better on a vent?

Magnetic for me kicks.
 Have a magnetic connected on all my phones and all my vehicles have a magnetic mount in the cars that way I don't have to be busy opening and closing holders.
   And suction works fine, but I personally use it in the CD slots.

 Try the magnet and see how you like it, and if no good buy the other one.

  That's if you have the newer cars then yes, a slight problem. Or if you have a really old car.

If this is your problem, you could use the ones that you put in the air condition (like I have)

Not as firm as the CD slots, where it doesn't move.

I personally dont like the magnet.
So i use this, if your car has a vent acces.

If you dont have vent access you can use this one

WireCutter: The Best Car Phone Mount (https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-smartphone-car-mount/) recommends the iOttie which comes in 3 options (vent, suction, CD Player). I use the CD one (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JCLPCKT) as it is the most secure.

This is the best mount I've ever bought. I bought one for each of my family members - no joke.

And I say they work a tenth of what these work.
 For the magnetic ones, the cheaper they are the weaker the magnet, so do yourself a favor and get one that can hold your phone vs your phone falling and chance of cracking the glass.

That's right but you could also find good ones
What I usually do I buy 3 from 3 different sellers and use the good one

Any magnetic ones that work for a Toyota Sienna 2016?
The standard CD slot holder doesn't fit well. There's a lip which blocks the holder from going in, and I'm looking specifically for a magnetic holder mount that goes into the cd slot so it's firm and stable.

Just saw this today it looked really good. Sticks out of cigarette lighter with flexible wire.

I personally don't recommend magnet ones for multiple reasons:
A. If you got a big / heavy phone, it's hard to find a strong enough magnet.
B. Even if you do the stability can't compare to a regular mount, which for me is important especially for longer travels when I'm using my phone more, so not having to be particularly careful so my phone shouldn't fall is important.
C. I have a see-through case and the magnet ruins the Aura glow of the note 10+. ;)
D. Having one in my car for anyone to use, and not just those with magnets in the back of their phones.
E. Doesn't work on all phme cases.

Having said all that, I find the air vent mounted ones work well, (having the added bonus of cooling off your phone when the AC is on) mine came with a wireless charger built-in which turned out to be much less useful then I thought it would be. (Mainly because it used micro USB and needed the phone to be the exact height to get the wireless charging to work)

I use a no name brand just like this and I love it. You can practically put it anywhere. I put a magnet directly on the back of my phone. Works great.
