S 5 Compatible Car Mounts - ProGrip vs Bracketron
When my fiance asked me to find him a good mount for his car, I obviously turned to XDA and other forums to find the right one. He and I both have the S5 so I bought 2 different mounts to try and give his one and I took the other. I grabbed the ProGrip Mount off Amazon and also got the Bracketron Mount from Best Buy. One is a more affordable option (7.99) where the other is a high end priced mount at 34.99.
First I tried the Bracketron
mount - it was from best buy and is a suction based mount. Overall the mount has a very nice appearance and mounts very sturdily. The part that actually holds the phone is easy to use and gives a nice hold on the phone. The price definitely reflects its quality, as it is made from thick and well molded plastic. This is the mount my fiance ended up taking, since he tends to like more high priced items.
The TechMatte ProGrip
was the next mount I tried. I got it from Amazon and it was about a third of the price of the other mount. I kept this one for myself as I liked it because it was more simple and easy to use. It came quickly in the mail and is very good quality mount for such a low price. I have tried others before that were more than this pricewise and did not hold this well. I live around some pretty bad and bumpy roads and it did not shake or rattle.It gives me the same performance as the Bracketron my fiance took.
I recommend both of these mounts for in the car. They both work with a variety of phones and provide strong hold. One is expensive, the other is not. You can be the judge...
I'm from Washington DC. I'm not exactly proud of it.
