I have reviewed another iOttie product in the past. I was very impressed with the quality and features of their MiGo Selfie Stick, so I was very happy to oblige when they reached out to me to review their Easy One Touch Mini Air Vent Phone Mount.
I could immediately see the same quality craftsmanship in this mount as in the selfie stick. They really seem to focus on strong components that will stand up to daily use. All of the moving parts move smoothly. I did find the button for the vent clip to be a bit difficult to press. The trade-off is that the clip has a much stronger hold on the vent where it is mounted. If you are not moving the mount often, this shouldn’t be a problem. It is a little problematic for me, because I move it back and forth from the car to my stationary bike… guess I just need to get a second one!
It is so easy to place your phone in the cradle. You literally just push your phone against the button on the mount and the arms snap into place. That’s it! To remove it is equally easy. There are two push buttons below the arms on each side. Grab hold of your phone and squeeze these buttons toward your phone to release. Easy-peasy! It accommodates a generous range of phones sizes and handled my large phone (with and without the case) with ease.
I love the range of movement that the mount has. I can angle my phone up, down and side to side with ease… whether I’m on the go in the car or getting a better view during my workout. There is a locking mechanism on the swivel base that can also hold it at a set spot. There’s also a set of channels along the rear of the mount to keep all your cords properly managed.
I use my phone to take pictures, so I can’t really show it in use with my phone. It looks exactly like iOttie’s stock photos when in use.
Overall, another great offering from iOttie. I continue to be impressed with how much thought goes into designing even the most basic of products. Highly recommended!
Pros: Strong, stable hold. Easy to insert and remove device. Cable management system.
Cons: Takes some strength to open clip.
