This list required a rather extensive overhaul, as we discovered several items that were unavailable or raised red flags in terms of durability and quality concerns. The Auto Tech Luxury and Soaiy 3-in-1 both had a tendency to cause damage to the vehicle, while some other models featured very unreliable adhesive that could potentially lead to broken phones.
We noticed that a new version of the iOttie iTap is now available, so we updated the list to reflect that. This is a solid model for small to mid-sized devices, but when used with a large, heavy phone, its stability begins to decrease a bit.
