RAM Mounts Universal X-Grip IV Cell Phone Holder
I bought this product to use with my Samsung Note 4. The tension is not sufficient enough to hold my phone securely. Any bumps (especially at highway speeds) will cause the device to fall out.
A redesign where the holder supports the device from the bottom might be the solution.
Truly disappointed with this item.
I do not recommend this product for the Note 4 or similar device.

Works well on my iPhone 6 Plus with Tech21 Case
Great addition to my bike. Secures my iPhone 6 well with Tech21 case.

Best mount ever
If you have a problem with this mount then I blame you for a bad install or failing to ensure your phone is secure. No offense to their bad reviews but I have a mount on a 2004 SV 650S and a 2014 Thruxton 900 and I have never had issues with the boots or the phone falling off (iPhone 6 with black leather case - thin case). I do not work for RAM mounts but I swear by them, best holder I have ever had. I use an iPhone 6 and it never falls off on freeway, bumpy roads, smooth roads, canyons, etc. I drive 50 miles a day for work. Very secure. I even use this in my Tacoma and fly over bumps with no issues. Maybe others had a defective item or a slippery case or something. I don't know but I recommend this holder for your phone. If you are worried get an otter box but it should be fine.

iPhone 6 Plus as GPS
I purchased this mount to use it when I need to have a gps on the bike. I have a 6 plus iPhone in an Otter case and this holder works perfectly with that combination.
It has plenty of gripping power and the ball mount keeps my phone in any orientation needed.
Do not recommend this if you don't have a case on your iPhone as it will not have enough gripping surface.

Is as advertised.
From what I've read some people have had problems with the rubber boots sliding off while riding and from looking at it I could see that easily happenig, but nothing a little super glue couldn't fix, now they're not going anywhere. I have it holding my S5, while it doesn't seem like the most secure hold it has held well for the 2 weeks I've had it including a few limited triple digit speed runs.

The rubber feet come off... and so will your expensive device!
The little rubber boots get weak over time and come off.
I lost my phone once... and looked down another time and the phone was barely being held. It's a mickey mouse designed cradle.
I wish they made the custom ones like I had for the Iphone 4-5's I used to own.
waste of money.

Does Not Work
My Iphone 6+ in an otter box is within the parameters of this product; however, the X-Grip is just to week to hold it. My phone went tumbling down the highway. The otter box saved the phone but what a waste of money.

It works, but GLUE the rubber feet down!!
I originally ordered this for my phone and radar, had to return it because it blocked two crucial areas on my radar, so I found the magnet plate mount by ram and ordered the smaller version of this mount as well for my phone. The MOST important thing you need to do with this mount is GLUE the rubber feet down before you even ride. They will vibrate lose and your device will go bye bye. I have a velcro strap for extra security around my detector as well.
