4.0 out of 5 stars Holds my Xperia Z very tightly., 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MONTAR Universal Car Mount For Smartphones GPS One Hand 360 Rotation Best Holder Cradle Windshield Dashboard For iPhone 5/5S/6/6 Plus Samsung Galaxy S4/S5/S6/S6 Edge Note 3/4 HTC ONE M8/M9 Sony Xperia Z3/Z4/Z3 Compact (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Bought this car mount for my new Xperia Z.

The mount sticks VERY firmly to glass - haven't tried it on any other surfaces yet.

Just a couple of comments ... it is a very tight fit on the phone, so fitting the phone is a bit of a struggle as you really have to use one hand to hold the "gripping jaws" open while holding the phone in place. With the Xperia Z this is a bit tricky because you have to clamp it in just the right place - see below. I can imagine how the design could be improved to make this easier - add finger grips round the back that you "squeeze together" to open the jaws, instead of having to prise the jaws open with your fingers from the inside while the phone is in the way.

On the Xperia Z (unlike the phone in the picture) you do not want to clamp the phone near the middle, because that's exactly where the power button is. Also just a bit further down are the volume up/down buttons so you can't clamp it there either. Also you can't clamp it ABOVE the middle because then you can't connect a charger when in-car. So you have to clamp the phone rather close to its bottom edge. This works OK for navigation apps, but for "dashcam" apps it seems that there is a bit of vibration in the videos, I am guessing because the camera is right up the top, and the phone is held right near the bottom.

All in all a good sturdy mount, but just a couple of issues make it not quite a 5 star!
