Very good, but careful on the dashboard
April 19, 2018
I purchased it formy Samsung S8 Plus and installed it on my windshield. I first cleaned the windshield with a mix of water, dish soap and vinegar. The holding is very strong. I had to adjust the position and I thought that I would break it because of the force I had to use to do so. I therefore suggest that you first confirm the position you want it on the windshield before removing the suction pad packing cover. The many adjustment screws provide flexibility to the system and once they are all tighten, the assembly is zolid. Also, since I am not sure about the durability of the spring system that create the pressure on the two arms to hold the phone, I release the pressure when I remove my phone instead of keeping the arms open.
Here is an addition to my initial review. Because I used a windshield sun reflector this summer, I installed the mount on the dashboard. It was solid initially, but after a prolonged period (one month) of the car staying outside and heating up inside, the mount detached from the dashboard base. I tried putting it under warm water as recommended in the instruction, to no avail. I suspect that the part of the dashboard I had placed the mount's base was not completely flat, although it looks to be. Since I can't remove the base from the dashboard without risking damaging the surface of the dashboard, I reverted to using the windshield to mount it; and it works. So before thinking about using the dashboard mount disk, ensure that the dashboard is 100% flat. To do so, before removing the disk's thin plastic protecting the sticky surface, place the disk on the area where you plan to fix it and look if it fits flush on the surface.
