I cannot comment on it's durability and longevity yet, but it's ease of use, practicality etc are very, very good.
With the iPhone 4 insert you get a perfect fit and the touch screen works perfectly through the case.
I have one, itsy bitsy issue (well I've got to balance the review!) which is the fact that, being an iPhone 4 it has the case on, to address the signal issues (thanks apple!), and it's a tad annoying having to remove it each time to put it on the bike. However this really is just a niggly little thing and doesn't detract from how good I think this product is.
If you want a bike mount for your iPhone (3 or 4), the I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this product.
The first of which I noticed that although the iphone 4 fits snugly, once I had closed and secured the lid, I did notice that where the gap between the top and bottom is where the silicon inlay/seal should, but was actually further inside than it should have been. Since then if the weather had looked as though there might have been some rain, I would always check the seal, and on occasion, I would be able to see a small amount of the silver edge of the phone and I would adjust the silicon inlay accordingly.
Another problem I found was with the screen, because it has a gloss finish, if reflects a lot of light and shadows which can make it difficult to read the screen at times. I do have a matt finish screem protector on my actual phone to reduce reflections, but because this is placed inside of the mount, the gloss screen cancels this out.
The next problem I encountered was that the mechanism used to attached the phone mount to the handle bar bracket wasn't too secure. On one occasion whilst cycling along a very rough road surface, I heared something bouncing on the road, I looked down and I saw the bike mount, along with my iphone was not where it should have been. I quickly stopped and retrieved it to find that the phone had been suitable protected from the impact. Since this incident I have always ensured that the mount has clipped in correctly, but this week it failed again. Unfortunatly, there was traffic and it had bounced into the centre of the road where a car ran over it.Read more ›
the other thing about this case is the transparent membrane which allows the iphone4 to be operated with no issues whatsoever. wearing gloves would be a different matter but that'a asking too much.
now to the main problem with the unit - the clamping mechanism. it simply isn't strong enough to stop the unit rotating on your bars or moving slightly over time, particularly if you're riding high pressure tires over rattling road surfaces. mountain bikes with decent suspension would probably work better, the exact opposite of what some folks are saying below. for the record, roadies take way more vibration than mountain bikes due to the lack of suspension and 120psi tires.
overall i'd say it's worth a punt but maybe only for short commutes or on hybrids or mountain bike with more forgiving rides. if you're a serious rider on group rides over 50 miles you won;t want this device annoying you with its constant slipping. i would also feel anxious about my iphone in a downpour over rough roads as the sealing catch isn't tight enough to instil confidence.
I've been cycling with it for a few weeks now on mixed road and off-road and it's not moved about at all. However, it is important to check that all the clips have clicked home. The only small problem so far has been the highly reflective screen cover it uses. Should you be lucky enough to be cycling in the sun the screen becomes pretty hard to see. Otherwise this feels well made and rugged and I would definitely recommend it.
