Choosing a phone holder can be a stressful and confusing process. There are so many options on the market these days that it is often difficult to establish what you really need to mount your phone safely, securely, and legally.

Are you willing to drill holes? This is an important question to address when selecting a solution for holding the phone. A large percentage of the products on the market right now require at least some drilling or manipulation of the interior of your car. A better solution is one that sticks to your board, allowing you to mount your device firmly and securely without the need to create unsightly holes in your board.

Do you want to charge your phone while it is mounted? If so, you need to make sure that your mounting solution comes equipped with the correct adapter to allow you to charge the phone from your car battery. It's also important to make sure you buy a device that uses the correct voltage and shape of the adapter. Be sure to double-check - some adapters may look quite similar, but they provide very different voltages!

Do you have a touch screen device? It is important to make sure the adapter is the correct shape to fit the type of phone you own. Obviously, a bracket that obstructs the screen will not be suitable for devices with a touch screen. Before buying (if possible), you should try to use the phone while it is in the adapter. This is a safe way to check if the phone holder will meet your expectations and requirements.

Hopefully, these points will help you make an informed purchasing decision the next time you need to buy a mobile device.
