Secure and good access to screen; covers speakers
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Overall I am very happy with this and would recommend it. It holds the phone securely while still providing adequate access to screen...which are the 2 biggest complaints against the competitive products. However it will NOT protect your phone from rain or sweat or crashes. And unless you have a very slim cover, you will need to remove it from phone before putting phone in the bike mount. The bottom part of the bracket covers the speakers so if you listen while you ride, music is muffled a bit, maybe 25% at top volume. Nuisance but not a deal breaker. Volume buttons are covered, too, you need to use tap screen to adjust volume. It is easy to install. The mounting can be put on the stem instead of the handlebar, but unless you have a very long stem the angles will prevent it. Tried to insert more padding to elevate the bracket, but that made mount too unstable. It can be mounted horizontally, but the strap still goes the long way, it does not rotate. The mount itself does not swivel, but this is a benefit to stability and security. Good product that is functional and will meet your needs without being overly complex.
