Review for actual product (magnetic phone mount)
Since it seems like most reviews were written for a different product (the cradle phone holder), I was initially hesitant to buy this magnetic phone mount due to no pertinent reviews.
However, it was delivered today and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the product is essentially exactly as advertised. I like that the mount itself is rotatable and the surface of the mount has a softer rubber texture. It does come with two differently sized metal plates (which you apply to the back of your phone), and I was able to put it under my slim fit case with no issues. Due to the way my vents are positioned I had to put the metal plate closer to the bottom half of my phone, but the magnet has had no issues holding it up.
I also am a bit fan of how minimalist and unobtrusive (relatively speaking) the logo is compared to similar products. The only “downside”, so to speak-is that when the phone is attached to the magnet, it looks like the magnets are visible through the surface. However, I would still recommend this if you’re looking for a decent magnetic air vent mount for your phone.

A Company that You Can Love
First, the box had directions along the side I would have missed that, thinking they were inside.
I did exactly as the instructions said, held the adhesive down for at least 10 - 20 seconds, but the magnet is so strong, that when i pulled it off the back of my phone, the adhesive disc came right off with it. The comany’s customer service is wonderful. When they read my review, they were very kind and accommodating and offered help and refund immediately. I would definitely do business with them, again.

Just installed it today. It was a little heavy for my center vent and keep weighing it down. It was just right for my left driver side vent. Works great. Wish it came with instructions, the wipes are number 1 and 2. Make sure to use scissors to cut them open from the aluminum foil wrapping. It not easy to open just by hand. The clear plastic protector for the phone comes off with the little clear tab on the side, I didn't know that and rip it a little. Once the plastic protector is on place your choice of 2 metal circle piece size goes on your phone and you are good to go.
The clip that goes on the vent it tight rubber and self adjust to your vent size. The magnet is very strong and phone is easy to slide off.

Won't work for iPhone X with a case on
Nice looking minimal design. Quality materials. I read through the product's descriptions and many of the user reviews which were very insightful.
Unfortunately, even though I did my best to use all the pros/cons to make my decision to buy, this item, it did not work for my iPhone X which is in a very minimal case. The magnet just wasn't strong enough to hold it. I inserted the metal plate inside the case as some had suggested. Also, when I attached the magnet mount to my air vent, it held very tight but the vent swung back and forth from the weight of the phone which again made it fall off. Don't want my phone falling.
I wanted to like the item and gave it a few days try, but it was just not going to work for me. So my tip is if you have a case that's other than a super thin gel, it probably isn't going to work for you either. If you use no case, it will probably work. They offer a stick-on metal plate and everything you'd need to attach directly to your bare phone. I prefer not to do that. And, I just wasn't going to take my phone case on and off every time I needed to use my car. Anyways, I returned the item for a refund from BTA-MALL without any problems. I'll need to research and find another mount option.
I hope this information is helpful and best of luck.

It looks good and doesn’t appear to be cheaply made it simply ...
Please don’t purchase this if you have an iPhone 8 plus or galaxy 7 edge or iPhone 6. The magnet was not strong enough to hold any of these phones. I purchased this based on the star ratings. People please be honest when rating products. Your ratings factor in to some of our decisions to purchase . It looks good and doesn’t appear to be cheaply made it simply doesn’t do what it’s advertised to do. Thank you

Sturdy enough to hold iPhone 8+ in an Otterbox upright
Comes with 2 different size magnetic discs to attach to you phone. Was easy to apply. The hardest part was attaching the adapter to my a/c vent. The 2 prongs (guess that’s what you would call them) are really tight. I stuck the adapter to the lowest slat in the vent. I have my iPhone 8+ in an Otterbox case, so you know it’s bulky & heavy! This holds it up! I also like the fact that I can angle it whichever direction I want. You can position your phone in either portrait or landscape view. I don’t have GPS built into my car, but with this adapter- I can access the maps app on my phone. I can see where my phone is directing me to. Love it!

Well design, practical product
Finally, no more fishing for my phone if it falls between my car seats while driving! Thanks for a well designed, practical product!

I have a heavy phone and was afraid this would not hold, but it works. This is high quality. The magnet is very heavy and dense. It fits and stays in the air vent very snug and does not sag. The 3M disc sticks and holds perfectly to my phone case. I wanted to rate this unit because I am so impressed with it. Awesome buy.

Easily portable (rentals)
Small yet strong. Easily portable (rentals). Works as suggested. Would have preferred to glue it to my dash....AC and heat are directly on device... not good for battery or inards......

Magnet attachment does not rotate or bend.
Great little cellphone magnet for cars. The unit attaches to a vent by a hard slim prong that you have to push on. But it keeps the unit on, no wiggle or falling off. The magnet works quite effectively with my Samsung S7 Active.
