As the title says, I got a pleasant surprise when this arrived. All the parts are of good quality and look well made. The main hinged frame is made of metal and is a decent weight.The rubber components are thick and wont tear in a hurry. It looks good on the dash and it doesn't move. The phone stays put as well, you just place it on the rubber pad and it stays. How does it do that? because the surface isn't sticky,....genius. If it all stays together, and it certainly looks like it will this is a bargain. I bought it for my HTC Desire phone but it will just as happily hold my iPod touch,the wifes phone and probably a sat nav if you have one. That would save the giveaway circular mark on the windscreen that the opportunist thief looks for when he steals your sat nav out of your glove box.
All in all, worth every penny of the £8.99 it cost.
