The Best Magnetic Phone Mount
The safety is the most important thing for us, you need to drive to meet your daily life in most parts of North America. A study shows the mobile phone has a great impact on driving safety. A mobile phone is not the accessory that comes with the car, there is no suitable place to place it. If you put the phone in the cup holder, it is unsafe to look down. As the vehicle moves and the phone sways back and forth, it is very annoying. Therefore, it is imperative to purchase a suitable mobile phone holder.
After trying a variety of mobile phone mounts, today I will give you a brand that has recently made us very happy: SCOSCHE. The California-based accessories company was founded in 1980, 40 years ago. Their products focus mainly on accessories for mobile devices, such as cell phone holders, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, and even heart rate monitors. After visiting the brand at CES, I was very interested; but they have a wide variety of products, and the difference is not easy to find out. Just coincidentally, we got a full set of magnetic mobile phone holders of the SCOSCHE products. Enjoying happiness alone is not as happy as sharing it. We decided to share the experience with you.
SCOSCHE have four categories according to categories: MagicMount Charge, Original MagicMount, MagicMount Pro, and MagicMount Elite.
After tried them out, I found that the differentiation of these four products is obvious. Start by packing the smallest Original on the right.
Here's what inside:
Installation is very simple, first put the protective sticker to the back of the phone, without wireless charging you can directly attach to the back center, with wireless charging on the back of the back position, probably like this:
Apple original silicone shell and original leather shell are compatible with this mount. After testing the iron piece, no problem with the suction force. There is also a small clip on the back of the bracket that fixes the charging cable. It is very intimate:
Although this car has CarPlay, there is no suitable position to put the phone. I usually put the phone in the cup holder, if you got two drinks, you will have a problem:
Let's install a SCOSCHE's mount! it is the simplest and most reliable adhesive installation, the installation takes only 1 minute, 30 seconds for finding the right position and 30 seconds for the stronghold to ensure firmness:
The installation is complete! Put the phone on and try it out:
It's very nice.
Pro is higher than Original, let's find out the difference together: First, the box is transparent, and the front cover can be opened directly to see the body.
Here's what inside:
Let's try this one on MINI. After some research, I found this location to be the most appropriate:
Because the surface is smooth enough, it is very easy to stick. Pro claims to have more suction force. We borrowed an iPhone XS Max to test it. How is it performing? No problem at all! According to the SCOSCHE, Pro suction is 30% stronger than Original. The comparison between the small series and the field also confirms this. The magnet of the Pro magnet is indeed stronger than the Original. It's better to get Pro for a heavyweight phone like the iPhone XS Max.
This Elite phone mount has an all-metal design and has won many awards. There are two colors: black and silver, we get the silver one. Accessories are more luxurious than Pro, with iron plates, PopSockets iron sheets, curved surface adapter boards, color product introductions, brochures, and cleaning wipes.
The metal texture is so good, it feels very smooth. I personally think that if Apple has a mobile phone holder, then this should be what it looks like. There are no other types of plastic ball knobs, Elite is directly fixed by the friction of the metal.
Worried that it can't be positioned? Come see our test. Let's put it in the car first:
In fact, the friction of this mount is very strong, even a larger phone such as the iPhone XS Max can be well supported. In addition, thanks to the built-in 4 powerful neodymium magnets, Elite's suction is even better than Pro.
I think Elite is more suitable for who that are pursuing beauty. After all, high-end car interiors are made of aluminum, solid wood, leather, etc. The plastic mobile phone holder is not very tasteful in it, and the all-metal mount looks way much better.
As the name suggests, this magnetic phone holder supports Qi wireless charging. 10W fast charge, mainstream mobile phones such as iPhone, Samsung are supported, the box is the largest of this series:
Compared with the size of the mobile phone, it seems that the accessories are very rich, what's in there? Here you go:
The base can be replaced, no matter if you want to place it on the center console or stick it on the glass.
The iron bar is easy to install and fits on the outside of the phone case. We use it. Use the U-shaped indicator board to align the bottom of the phone and easily install the iron bars in place.
There is no need to repeat the installation of the mobile phone mount. It is worth mentioning that the suction cup behind it is very strong and does not shake at all. After determining the position, connect the power cable to the car charger and you're done.
Start the vehicle, pay attention to the charging symbol in the upper right corner, and successfully charged! With the wireless CarPlay, some MINIs were originally equipped with a wireless charging pad, but unfortunately, I don’t know what engineers think, mobile phones like the iPhone XS Max can’t fit in the wireless charge holder! With this Scosche wireless charging stand, the problem is solved perfectly.
In conclusion, the magnetic bracket has many advantages and is very easy to use. The SCOSCHE works very well and is worth every penny.
- Original MagicMount is the most affordable, the most compact accessories, suitable for users with small mobile phones;
- Pro is more suitable for most users, in addition to our adhesive type, there are other models to choose from;
- Elite is for high-end users, it is a bit more expensive but it is made of all-metal;
- Charge supports wireless charging, phone can be charged while put on, eliminating the process of plugging in, which is very convenient.
