RAM Mounts Universal Cell Phone Holder Kit
Great Cell Phone or GPS Mount
Installed this about a year ago on my ninja 650 and could not be happier. Held by Galaxy S3, Moto G, and now iPhone 5s. Never had any issue of phone coming loose from grips as the rubber nubs have a great grip on phone. My wind screen keeps air from hitting the mount and even at speeds well over 100mph theres no signs of mount failing me. I do suggest that you make sure to apply electrical tape to the bar you are attaching u-bolt thing to in order to keep mount from slipping. Also be sure to tighten grip of mount that controls the angle of phone but once tightened there is no movement, highly recomend.

I got this so I could video my rides with my phone. It attached to my bars perfect, without blocking my display. Even on a bumpy ride, and very windy conditions it held on to my phone. If you don't have a camera on your helmet, then this would work with your phone.

Secure mount for smartphone
This is a great mount for smartphones with 5 inch screens. Holds the device securely at all kinds of angles. The device does not move!
I mounted direct to the mirror mount and it works awesome.
Just make sure the X-Grip does not touch any buttons. :)

Decent Product with a Few (fixable) Fatal Flaws
I just installed this phone holder today and have yet to use it. However, I have noticed some flaws that should not exist in something that costs this much.
-Mounting hardware is clumsily designed. U-bolt setup with the little plastic insert and standoffs is a little strange. Although it's very flexible in mounting configurations and seems very secure after installation.
-I've read the other reviews saying that the rubber pieces fall off.. they seem firmly attached so far but again this should not be an issue for something priced as it is.
-The most annoying thing for me so far: The clamping arms kind of "float" so that your phone can just rotate freely about 30 degrees. This is just bad design; some designer at RAM not really thinking things through. I've attached a photo of my fix... just a small zip-tie holding one arm to the screw post so that only one arm is free to move. This keeps the phone in one orientation and is installed under the round cap with 4 screws so that it is imperceptible on the outside. It also doesn't affect how securely the phone is held in place.
Overall it's not a bad product.

Secure with several mounting options
The X-Grip is secure yet very easy to attach and remove your phone. This kit gives you several options for mounting, which I'm still trying to find the optimal location without blocking my instrument cluster. I think my only complaint would be that with my Samsung Galaxy S4 if you aren't carful about placing the phone far to the side the grips trigger the volume and power buttons. I imaging this might be a problem on other devices as well. If you have a case on your phone this might be less of a problem. I don't have one on my phone.

Holds any type of phone
Easy to install and holds my phone at any angle securely. Great that it is not dedicated to a specific phone model. When I upgrade to a new phone it will still work. Simple to insert and remove phone into mount.

I am very pleased with this product.
I use my phone as my GPS on my Vespa. The RAM mount holds the phone securely. If I have any complaints at all, it's that the mount does permit the phone to rotate around 30°. Sometimes, if I am leaned over, and the phone is rotated, the image will go horizontal. Otherwise, the mount works very well, and I like the flexibility of the RAM system. I also have a mount for my Drift Ghost camera.
