To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
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.
I bought this dock to hold my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 while driving. It is excellent and I strongly recommend it. It holds the device solidly without shake or wobble and can be rotated portrait or landscape and adjusted easily. The side jaws expand and contract to clamp the phone firmly. They are large enough to accommodate a flip cover or slim protective case. The bottom jaw has a gap to insert a MicroUSB2 or larger MicroUSB3 charging cable (but the cable and charger do NOT come with the dock). The jaws and supports all have soft rubber padding. Don't waste time on unbranded or cheaper docks - I tried two before this, both were wobbly and difficult to install or remove the phone. This Samsung one, although more expensive, is rock solid, and the Note 3 clips on and off effortlessly.
This is my second dock to put in my other car. The Samsung dock is well built and holds my Samsung S7 securely. It will hold other phones just as well including my wife's iPhone 5. The grip to the windscreen is very secure and I have NEVER had mine fall off, unlike other cheap alternatives. I like the smooth design to!
Bought one recently for my car but have had the same one in my work van for 3 years. It’s never fallen off and I put my phone in and out a few times a day every day and mechanism still good. If I had the money I’d by the company. Use it for Samsung S8 and iPhone 6, mechanism easily adjustable and will go bigger or smaller than these phones.
