Car Phone Holder
AUKEY Car Phone Mount Air Vent Cell Phone Holder for Car Compatible with iPhone 11/11 Pro/Xs/XS Max / 8/7 / 6, Google Pixel 3 XL, Samsung Galaxy S9+, and Other
I think Car Phone Holder for your phone are a safety concern. When you are looking down at your console, how can you keep your eyes are on the road? So I was excited to find the Aukey air vent cell phone holder. It is packaged well and out of the box it feels solid. I do like the padding in the cradle.
It seemed simple enough to install in the online description but installation was not as easy as it is made out to be. The weight of the holder with my iPhone 11 in the cradle causes the vent to close so then the viewing angle of the phone changes as well.
The 360 rotation can’t be adjusted with the phone in the cradle because you have to get behind the cradle to loosen the plastic nut that allows you to adjust/rotate it. In addition the vent in my car is behind the blinker arm which makes reaching the nut to adjust the angle that much harder. I thought I would try it on my outside vent which made installation a little easier but then the phone charging cord has to across my lap to get to the “outlet”.
I don’t know how you would adjust between portrait and landscape with the phone in the cradle. You also have to make sure all the parts are tight or the phone rotates down. Currently my vent is closed, so not sure how that will work with the car temperature ..
My phone fell out of the cradle twice so far too, so I am not sure how well the side arms hold the phone.. I do like that the cradle is padded and the quick release button seems to work. I am still working with this because I want to love this-it has great potential.
I’ve reinstalled it 3 times so far, trying to get the angle just right. Will update this review if success is found before I get too frustrated and give up.Promised Review By DirectDesign
