MPOW Grip magnetic universal car mount phone holder

We all own smartphones. And there’s nothing more enervating than not being able to heed a smartphone’s call while driving – although agreed that driving and texting is something that should be avoided at all costs. But if you still need to keep your phone within reach when making your daily commute, then you can keep a grip on things with this magnetic universal car mount affixed to your dashboard, and offload the worry of having to rummage for your phone while in mid-drive. Suitable for iPhone 7, 7 plus and Android smartphones, it’s a cinch to install with a one-hand motion and your smartphone latches on to it magnetically so you can be sure it won’t be knocked out of place on a sharp turn or sudden swerve. What is doubly convenient is that it also allows 360-degree rotation so that you needn’t worry about re-adjusting your seating position while your eyes are glued to the road, to instead skew the mount according to your seating position and not vice versa. A soft rubber suction cup ensures will keep your smartphone scratch free as well.

What’s better is that it has other talents like noise cancellation to ensure reliable audio output with no interference.

Other features include a built-in microphone to enable hands-free chats when you’re cruising forward, as well as support for MicroSD, with aux input and output as well.
