  • I used to use a magnetic mount with my LG phone with a removable back. I could put the metal plate BEHIND the Qi charging coil, so wireless charging still worked. But with most of today's phones forcing you to stick the metal plate outside the phone, wireless charging is a non-starter. And if you don't use a case, you're stuck sticking the ugly metal plate on the outside of your phone. If you don't use wireless charging, and use a case, magnetic mounts are still an excellent way to mount your phone in your car. Otherwise, not so much. Aside from that, it's sad how far Android Central has fallen, turning into a shill for Amazon.com referral dollars.
  • I always thought magnets aren't good for batteries, same with the screen. Could anyone shed some light on this?
  • These things are not safe.
    Hit a big bump, your phone falls off the mount.
    You reach over to pick it up, and drive into a big-rig truck and die.
    The end.
  • HA! Maybe one shouldn't be putting such importance on a phone that they reach down while driving behind a big-rig truck.
  • I'm still waiting for the day when they make cases either with a metal plate integrated into the case or a recessed area for putting a plate without causing the case to bulge out
  • Me too!
  • Uhm, a great idea to place your phone in front of the vents.
