Phone holder for in the car

Anyone got a recommendation for a phone holder inside the car? The RAM mounts seem very popular and I've seen people get into accidents without the phone falling out. Just curious if there's anything better out there. There's a LOT of junk on amazon and ebay...

Looking for something that will suction to the windshield probably without being a massive wobbly chunk of plastic.

I bought a couple of these (different brand from Amazon) and love them. I spent way more than $1.99, though, so I'm sure these will be well worth it.

I noticed that one. Does it damage the vents at all?

Nope. It's a real soft rubber, so it grips the vents.

I noticed this one says, "Up to phones 2.9" wide." If you have a larger phone (such as a Samsung Note #), it may not fit. Here are a couple other options that may be worth looking into:

Was going to recommend the Kenu Airframe but the one in post #2 looks like a knock off for 1/10th the price.

Ordered one of these when I got my VeePeak OBD reader on Amazon. It's held up great so far, around town on bumpy Tucson roads when it's on my dash, and on canyon runs when I stick it to my windshield and record.

Bought the original Kenu and the knock offs, they're effectively the same but cheaper.

Pretty sure i have the same one and it works great. The suction part is also sticky so def put it on your windshield and not the dashboard or you'll have a nasty circle when you take it off.

I got this wizgear magnetic car vent holder. Works great. No complaints, although the iPhone compass is a little off.

I use this one too and I'm pretty happy with it. However I've been curious about the Spigen Style Ring and might try that out.

that thing sucks
it won't stay in place or hold your phone as well as the infiniapp holder
and the infiniapp holder allows quite a bit of angle adjustment

Bought this for my '06 325xi. It works amazingly with my iPhone 7+!
