    Honest long term review after owning it for 7 months., October 17, 2014

    This review is from: Satechi Universal Smartphone CD Slot Mount for 3.5″ – 5.5″ Smartphones for iPhone 6, 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4, Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, Note, Note 2, Nexus S, HTC One X, S, Motorola Droid Razr HD, Maxx, Nokia Lumia 920, LG Optimus G (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    ******************I UPDATED THIS REVIEW ON 11/21/14************************

    It’s been about 7 months since I bought this mount and I must admit that it’s been working great. Overall, this is one of the decent, clean solution out there for your smartphone mount in car. I am not a huge fan of suction cup or on-dash mounts.

    Pros
    – Utilizes space that’s not being used by most people, which is CD slot. This could be a Con for those people who listeners to CD, but if you bought this mount for smartphone, I figure you either stream your smartphone via bluetooth or AUX (or just have a spare iPod in car)
    – Part that holds the phone is spring latched, so it’s easy to mount and take out. I find this to be one of the most convenient feature.
    – Swivels and height adjustable. Think of it like a tilt & telescopic steering wheel in 360 degrees.

    Cons
    – It didn’t do this first 3 months, but it started to squeak as I drive now. Not to brag or anything, but I had this mount on both Lexus and BMWs and it still squeaks even with the smooth pavement. I just have to move the tilt & telescopic position slightly to stop the squeaky noise. Not a deal breaker, but definitely is annoying.
    – What also went bad after 3 months, is the slide-in CD slot holder. I do not drive hard or anything, but after 3-4 days of driving the mount is out by 1/3 inch. I have to push it back in, otherwise it’ll just fall down after a day or two. This is quite annoying and is caused by the weak mechanism of the slide-in CD slot holder. I did put in the thickest pad to make sure I have the tight and firm, secure connection.
    – I can’t do much about this one due to the design of the mount, but it blocks whatever buttons that are placed above and below of this mount, which could be annoying to some.

    Side note : I have fitted following phones securely without any problems.
    – iPhone 6, 6 Plus
    – iPhone 5s (it barely fits without a case, but if you have a case it’s not a problem)
    – Galaxy S4
    – Galaxy Note 3, 4
    – LG G3 (with and without the Circle Flip case)
    – HTC One M8
    – Moto X (2013 edition)

    ****************UPDATE AS OF 11/21/14 ******************************
    Couple things to update.

    First, I mentioned previously how the ‘slide-in latch’ is getting weaker. Well, it’s now even weaker. I mean, it’s enough to hold my phone while driving, but it just simply comes out way too easily when I’m trying to detach the phone. My opinion is that it’s caused by two things.
    1. Spring latch that holds the phone is getting somewhat stiff. Basically, the clamp won’t stretch out as smooth as it used to which causes to move the entire unit.
    2. Mentioned again for the third time, but it’s also caused by the weakness of the slide-in latch of this mount. If it was little stronger, it probably won’t come off this easily.

    Second, the squeaky noise while driving is getting somewhat worse. I haven’t been mounting my phone on this thing too often past couple of days. Just to those people who are curious and may think this matters, I park my car inside the garage during winter/summer. My car isn’t parked outside in the extreme temperature (very cold/hot) very often. As I live in Utah, this is a common thing where summer is burning hot and the winter gets quite cold along with lots of snow. However, I don’t think this matters way too much with the squeaky noise part of the problem but worth mentioning anyway.

    I am starting to get annoyed by these little things. However, I will still keep my rating of 3 stars. But if another thing starts to fail, it will definitely go down to 2 stars.

    Mount works great. Depending on where your CD slot is, this might get in the way of some buttons, but it is far more sturdy than vent clip mounts. It is also very easy to adjust, and there is no need to loosen and tighten a bolt. Just twist it where you want, and the mount stays in place. Does not affect CD player usage (although you need to remove the mount to change CDs).

    Works Upside Down, January 5, 2014

    I was initially disappointed to find that the mount, when installed, interfered with the volume button, which was mounted just below the CD slot. The solution? Just insert the mount into the CD slot upside down! Although it doesn’t look as aesthetically pleasing, functionally, it works just as well and still places my phone in the perfect position for quick interactions during navigation.
