About this deal

Points were awarded for the ability to shift between landscape and portrait views, and for ease of installing and removing the tablets, because you won’t want to be leaving them in the car when you reach your destination. Finally, we took into account the prices charged at the time of writing. Verdict Adjustability We test how easy or fiddly it is to adjust the car phone holders to a comfortable position to view your mobile.

A growing number of automatic and MagSafe-compatible options are now available. Automatic mounts use an IR proximity sensor, open when your phone is in range, and automatically adjust their grip to accommodate your phone once it is seated. MagSafe mounts attach to the MagSafe array on newer iPhones. Dash and windshield mounts are more versatile and are typically a better choice for most people. Some attach via a suction base. Others use an automotive-grade adhesive that shouldn't damage your car. You can't easily move adhesive mounts once you place them, though, and the adhesive does break down over time. If you plan to use your mount in multiple cars, or simply don't want to clean gummy residue when you eventually remove it, choose one with a suction mount. And if your car still has a CD player, you can also choose to mount your phone there. Grip We manually shake all the car phone holders to see how well they grip a mobile and whether it detaches.First, you need to choose between the two basic types of car phone mounts: mounts that attach to your air conditioner vent and mounts that attach to your dashboard or windshield.

Stability We take each in-car phone holder out on a bumpy driving test to see how stable it remains and whether the angle or position of the phone changes significantly.

Mounts with built-in Qi wireless chargers are increasingly common. Your vehicle's DC port powers these mounts, which save you the trouble of plugging in your phone each time you hop in the car. Most are compatible with both Android devices and iPhones. If you often forget to plug in your phone and it supports wireless charging, this is a no-fuss way to keep it juiced up. Ease of use Our testers rate each car phone mount on how easy it is to put together, attach a phone and attach it to a car. Mounts that fix firmly to the headrest of the seat in front of a rear passenger can cost just a few pounds, and are well worth it to stop the cries of boredom and “are we there yet?”. But if they squeak, rattle or fall off in the middle of a trip, you might wish you’d never bothered. Which of the seven we tested will be best at taking the tablets? How we tested them We choose the most popular car phone holders sold at UK retailers and test each in different cars and with iPhone and Samsung devices. We buy all the products we test. Each car phone holder is rated on the following: You may be wondering: are magnetic holders safe? Although we can't vouch for all of them, the ones we tested had a strong grip and won't damage the internal components of your smartphone.
