I have searched high and low for the perfect phone mount for my truck. I wanted something unobtrusive, clean, and minimal that wouldn’t leave the cab of my truck with a plastic wart hanging off an A/C vent. I went through a few options before landing on the pinnacle of automobile phone mounts. Before we get to this majestic example of form and function, I want to take a moment to thoroughly shit on these other mounts.
Plastic Squeezy Garbage
Many of you are probably running some variation of this plastic squeezy garbage. It’s universal so it fits whatever phone you have, but it’s also universally ugly. This one below features a sweet suction cup so you can stick it on your windshield. You can find these mounts just about anywhere and in several different configurations to include the A/C vent mount. This is handy so anyone approaching your vehicle can know you are basic and avoid riding in your Honda Civic.
Gooseneck Squeezy Garbage
This is a very special phone mount that combines all the attractiveness of a giant suction cup with the cumbersome claw of a universal grip phone mount. This phone mount lets every rider in your cab know that you take technology seriously. Adorned with the tangled dangling charging cord, you should probably have passengers remove their panties (or boxers I suppose) before entering the backseat to save time. If you want the added hassle of cleaning a giant slobber circle off of your windshield this is the perfect purchase to hold your undoubtedly old iPhone with a cracked screen.
Obnoxious Sandbag Universal Garbage
This is the ultimate in what you should avoid putting in your car. This hunk of shit sits prominently on your dashboard like a plastic wart. With all the style of a keyboard wrist rest punctuated by a hunk of cheap articulating plastic, how can you resist putting this retarded unicorn horn on your dash? Like the one above, at least this one is prominently displayed to let passers-by know that you have the personal style of an overweight mathlete.
This magnetic round circle is the ultimate in sleek, universal, reliable phone mounts for your car. There are several different brands that all look almost identical so I can’t necessarily say one is better than another. But this design and implementation is the bees knees when it comes to holding your phone up so you can watch Netflix while you drive. Since it’s just frickin’ magnets you can put the phone up horizontally or vertically. I mean you can do whatever you want here with this thing. When your phone isn’t stuck to this little perfect puck, it doesn’t clutter up your dashboard, no slobber circles on your windshield, and no retarded plastic unicorn horn on the dash. If you aren’t running one of these slick bastards in your car you are disappointing your parents and society.
I did buy the Wizgear brand mounts you see above. They were $8 for a pack of two, and I would easily pay double that, or triple that, knowing how awesome these things are.
