    Suction cups has never worked for me, ever.

  2. Elias Bardis on February 10, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    I saw the clip one online and thought "that is gonna need a very specific car to clip on…" Glad i looked here first! Great review!

  3. CUV D'Great on February 10, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    You missed out the rear view phone mount.

  4. shady 88 on February 10, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    My wife has the cup holder phone holder

  5. M Sebastian on February 10, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    I had the clamshell one. I didn’t like it because I have a Samsung phone and to access it you have to press a side button, and the clamshell does not allow that. Also after a week or two it kept sliding off the dashboard. Even after washing and drying the bottom repeatedly.

  6. Berkan Işık on February 10, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Hi, I’m using this product and I’m very happy that it’s completely organic, it doesn’t hurt your phone and it’s very convenient

  7. Joey Elias on February 10, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Best holder review on YouTube. Nice sunglasses too that I would like to buy (name or link).

  8. shady 88 on February 10, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    My wife has weather tech if u need something get that brand

  9. robert lee on February 10, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Just curious, why wasn’t weather tech cup mount not included? These are my experience with phone holders #1) vent mount doesn’t work well. It just doesn’t securely stay in place.It keeps moves and fall sundown time to time 2#) windshield mount has the same problem.#3) the cup mount it doesn’t work for me. You have to get your eyes off the road while you are driving. I am not sure why the cup mounts are so low level.#4) I just ordered a dash mount from Wal-Mart. I am waiting for it.i am a little bit nervous after watching your video.The review from customers on extended arm cupphone holder from weather tech is pretty bad.

  10. Tray on February 10, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    I Wouldn’t be able to put a phone mount on my windshield, due to the fact I would get pulled over and a ticket for "obstructing" my view, because in virginia you can’t even hang a Air Freshner Tree on your rear view mirror without getting pulled over. I don’t need any excuses to deal with the cops but I really want a windshield mount for my phone. I’m from connecticut so when I got pulled over for an air freshner I was done with Virginia for a few days because it was the most petty ridiculous thing I’ve ever experienced when dealing with a cop. Thankfully she was in a "Good" mood and gave me a simple citation instead of making it a much bigger deal… 🙄 Everyone I know hangs their trees on the mirror in every other state but Good Ole Virginia makes it a law so they can charge you a fee and you can ADD funds to their unessecary "Common Wealth" pot.

  11. The Bardock on February 10, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    Where are your shades from? I like them

  12. Darrell Dath on February 10, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Any suction phone holder and the bosynoy worries me during the freezing winter. Don’t think can hold during winter.

  13. Ozzy Sphabmixay on February 10, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    When Heisenberg from breaking bad, goes breaking good.

  14. CUV D'Great on February 10, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    The rear view one I got was bucky and heavy so it keep tilting down ward.

  15. UpNorthVids on February 10, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    straight up dr. robotnik sunglasses lol

  16. R Negs on February 10, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    First time on your channel, you remind me of Heisenberg

  17. Aerial on February 10, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    Imagine the electronic radiation in that car lol. 100x exposure per phone. It’s like sitting in a microwave oven..x100

  18. CUV D'Great on February 10, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    I feel confident with the cd slot phone holder

  19. Sara Burns on February 10, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    My vent mount causes my phone to overheat in the winter, when I turn the heater on.

  20. Larry B on February 10, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    The suction one looked good but don’t feel good about having my phone hanging from something not mechanically mounted. Did like the clamshell one but don’t like that it can’t be repositioned and don’t like the idea of it causing a clamshell shaped spot on my dash from uneven uv wear. Think the cup holder might be the one for me. Would like to find one with a larger neck if possible. Thanks for all the work!

  21. Un café con Cristian Diaz on February 10, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    … you escaped from the Matrix just to become youtuber?… good channel 🙂

  22. CUV D'Great on February 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    I had hoped the air vent mount clip could be build with a metal, that would make that type of phone holder last for a long time.

  23. Philip Soon on February 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    Awesome comparisons. There are suction cups and there are suction cups, but the best ones are from Ram Mounts. Their products are certified for mounting ‘electronic flight bag’ iPads onto cockpit side windows.

  24. M W Sloat on February 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    you should buy five different cars and test all holders in each car to see how versatile each holder is

  25. John Marko on February 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    So I need to invent a clamshell mount with a suction cup. Thank you sir.

  26. Nick Wells on February 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    The suction cup mount should have another locking level. It pops into locking from loose and then you should be able to push the lock down more and it’ll create more suction. It looks like you didn’t lock it all the way.

    Keep the great reviews coming!

  27. coji ion on February 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I found a really cool device in the UK to hold your phone during a flight or whils on a desk. Foldmeup.co.uk I believe was tha name, it also has an amazon uk shop.

  28. Gibbet Hoskins on February 10, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    With the window mount there is a clip that you have to press to full clamp the suction cap to the window, that is why it fell off i think

  29. Sandy Morales on February 10, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    Nice video! Good job sir! 👍👏

  30. Abdullah 2 on February 10, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Thank you so much for the review

  31. CUV D'Great on February 10, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Follow by the air vent one

  32. Dawn Liphard on February 10, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    I wonder if the clip would work on the visor. My daughter tends to like waiting in the car watching videos and thus could be cool for hands free watching.

  33. Alex Petrov on February 10, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    This guy is so underrated! he doesn’t get enough credit. He puts so much effort into his review videos. Great content!

  34. Vlad Serhiychuk on February 10, 2021 at 6:04 pm


  35. Steel Kreel on February 10, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Why buy a cup holder mount when you can just put your phone inside the cup holder? That’s what I do. Still dangerous to look at as you’re looking away from the road but still

  36. English Teacher James on February 10, 2021 at 6:07 pm

    wow slim coooool

  37. Quantiko Music on February 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    First time watching this guy, and oh my gosh, the humor and the straightforwardness is insane 🙏🏾 no paid sponsorships or sugarcoated descriptions. Honesty!!

  38. Steven S on February 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    Luckily, my car has Android Auto built in, so I just plug in my Samsung phone (and I had a LG previously) and use my tablet-style Infotainment screen to view Waze and other apps on my phone. I have both cup holders available and don’t have to spend money on a device to hold my phone!

  39. Yat Chow on February 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm


  40. Linda McNeely on February 10, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    do any of these get in the way of your vision while driving?

  41. Anthony ! on February 10, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    So annoyed by the fact there isn’t a good one for me.

    I’d love one that sits on my dash, like the clam(p?) one, but my dash is too steep.

    The vent ones are all too weak and droop over time.

    Winow suction ones can’t take how heavy my phone is, and fall after a while. It makes your window dirty and is too far away.

    The cupholder one just doesn’t make sense for me. Cupholder is similar to his in the video, so useless.

    The one that is a wannabe HUD I just hate I don’t want it in my face the whole time.

    If anyone has one they recommend, please help me out 😭

  42. Jeff Tomashunas on February 10, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    I have the TopGo with the long goose neck I love it. Now I use it in my Work Van (Ford Transit) it has 4 cup holders which are up front next to the dash board. For me it works perfect its sturdy and reliable for my needs. Thanks for the great review on these.

  43. Scott S on February 10, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    I see you didn’t include the Proclip brand. curious what you think

  44. s ravikumar datla on February 10, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    Tq.. Excellent information sir

  45. k c on February 10, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    I once defended a guy who was pulled over because he had dice hanging from his mirror and another because he had a crack in the front glass, the window mount might be an actual vision obstruction as opposed to an excuse to pull you over without cause!

  46. radical games on February 10, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    you look like the cat guy

  47. Arctic Gator on February 10, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    I think im going to get the clamshell one and just use 2 of those 3m velcro type strips on the dash

  48. Robert Meyer on February 10, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    First, you’re funny.
    Second, I got an esoulk suction mount phone holder for Christmas.
    I tried to use it on the way home, last night.
    It wouldn’t hold. It has a suction cup, with a lever lock. It has no adhesive.
    It was 0 degrees, last night.
    I waited until the dash was warm to try it. Still no luck.
    Do you have any experience with esoulk products?

  49. Smart cookie on February 10, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    I enjoyed this video but what kind of madman doesn’t have a protective case and/or a pop socket/ring on back?

  50. A. Jain on February 10, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    11:40 it grips phone so hard think it might break it !
