Arkon Sticky Suction Deluxe Windshield Dashboard Car Mount for Samsung Galaxy S5 S4 Note 3 iPhone 5 iPhone 5C 5S Smartphones

I really hate car mounting hardware that is phone specific. Yes, it fits perfectly, but when you get a new phone the mount becomes landfill. My husband and I have different models of phones as well, and when we go on trips, my phone ends up being the one used for the GPS and map apps. And I hate the way he has his phone set up. So when it is his turn to drive, I am stuck staring out the window.

But no more!

We set this mount up for my phone specifically, but then tested the following in the mount:

Galaxy S5
Galaxy S4
Galaxy S3 Mini

They all worked great in the same holder!

Installation was fast and easy! Even in the hot Texas sun it stays mounted tight to my dashboard.

Yes, it does look a bit “universal”. However, I will accept the trade off on looks for the added flexibility.

Overall: 4 Stars. Sticks great, holds phones, does it’s job!

The SM679 sticky suction deluxe car mount fits all large smartphones up to 6.75” tall, including the Samsung Galaxy S5 and previous Galaxy S series smartphones (including the S4 and S3), Galaxy Note 3, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, and Motorola Moto X. It also fits midsize tablets, including the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and 8.0, Galaxy Note 8.0, iPad mini, and Kindle Fire HD. This mount package includes Arkon’s Slim-Grip Ultra Universal Holder and a sticky suction deluxe windshield or dashboard car mount with one-touch lever. The mount is ideal for car dashboards, windshields, and other flat or slightly textured surfaces. The sticky suction base uses a powerful combination of polyurethane gel and suction to provide a maximum surface bond. In order to prevent permanent indentation marks on soft vinyl, leather, or similar dashboard surfaces, Arkon recommends using the included 3M adhesive mounting disk. The sticky suction mount is also easily removable and reusable. To restore the suction, just rinse the pad with a mild liquid soap and warm water then air dry. The smartphone or tablet is held securely in place with the spring-loaded holder, and can be inserted or removed from the mount with one hand. Included with the holder are 8 support legs (4 short and 4 longer versions). The top and bottom adjustable-leg design of the Slim-Grip Ultra helps keep any side buttons and ports unobstructed. For the Samsung Galaxy S5, Motorola Moto X, and for the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, iPad mini, and Kindle Fire HD, the best mount holder configuration is to attach 2 short support legs on top and the 2 long support legs on the bottom of the holder. For the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Note 2, and Galaxy Note 8.0, use the 4 long support legs on the holder. For the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, use the 4 short support legs on the holder. The arm of the suction mount adjusts vertically and provides 360 Degree rotation, providing flexibility in viewing the smartphone from any angle.
