    Phone holder

    Do you guys think that this phone holder will work?

    1. Will the strong magnetic field affect /damage the phone?

    2. Will it stick to the dashboard without damaging the dashboard when it is removed?

    3. Anyone of you using it?

    I'd be asking what you expect from something that's worth between $2.77 and $4.61?

    This one is the business.

    Not magnetic and not dash mount though.

    I had a similar one but I don't know what would happen when it gets removed as I sold it with the car. Worked well enough but I installed it so the base of the phone was resting on something as I never fully trusted it to support the weight over bumps etc.

    A couple downsides for my phone stopped me getting another. They require a metal disc or pad which was supplied to be stuck to the phone or it's case or you can maybe just slide it in between the case and the phone if that seems secure enough. Anyway it interfered with the wireless charging feature of my phone and messed with NFC features like google pay making them unreliable. I found a spot that worked on my phone but it took a bit of fiddling around and seemed to slow down the wireless charging although at least I got it working. If you have those features and want to use them it might be an issue.

    Amazon has reviews of it:

    I think the magnetic bit is OK, but the sitting on dash thing? I'd say it would last 5 minutes.

    We have one on the work ute it works well, the main drivers party trick is to throw the the phone at the base and it sticks.
    Myself being a bit OCD and ex military where everything has to line up does not like seeing a phone at a crazy angle when I am out in the ute with him picking up temp fencing. It matters little as its blue toothed into the Toyota infotainment system.

    mate has a similar item. works well.
    tho depends on case etc. eg my case is magnetitic.

    sticking it to the dash is rather poor as most are not smooth surface the glue pads can grip onto, and they tend to have non-stick type coatings.
    however they will stick to the window very well.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    I slipped the metal disc inside the clear plastic cover on my phone - it works a treat

    I have a part roll of 3M double sided tape which we used to stick the Kevlar armor plates to the floor of the helicopter, it works fine on the phone holder. If you pulled on the phone holder it would break before anything unsticks.
