RAM Mounts Universal X-Grip IV Cell Phone Holder
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.

such a simple idea and works perfectly, hard to believe that it can hold a phone so securely. I am using with a Galaxy S4 with an Otterbox, and it fits and holds great. Simple solution at the right price. As usual, great Revzilla service, quick shipping, quality packaging, outstanding communication. Thanks

Large cell phone will fall out
I bought this holder for a long trip where I could use my Samsung Note 2 as a GPS. The note is in an Otter Box case. It worked well at low speed on perfect roads.
As reported in some one else's review, my cell phone fell out of the holder while on a cement highway (think thump, thump, thump as you go over the seams) going through Birmingham Alabama at around 65 mph. Luckily I noticed it beginning to inch its way forward out of the holder and caught it after it hit the handle bar.
The cell phone stayed in my pocket the rest of the trip. I would not recommend this holder for large cell phones in otter box case for more than riding on smooth pavement at lower speeds.

Holds my very large phablet phone, a Nokia Lumia 1520, perfectly, as well as a BMW (Garmin) Navigator V GPS. Any device this thing can't hold shouldn't be on a motorcycle anyways! The rubber "fingers" provide very good grip, even at speed. No worries of anything falling out, ever. Pair this with a RAM mount of your choice and you're good to go!

This product is exactly what I have been looking for.

Excellent product - RAM Mounts are the best and this is the best phone holder out there!
If you lose your phone with this then you must have not tightened your ball down securely. I've taken this thing off-road on my pig of a R1200GS and forgot it was there. The tension on the grips hold my Samsung Galaxy S5 steady and true. I commute daily 40 miles each way through the twisties and the only time it almost came loose is when I didn't put it in flat against the base, it still held it though. I was on some gnarly dirt and rock trails on National Forest roads and it held firm. Just make sure you tighten the ball properly and you've seated your phone properly and it's not going anywhere.
