Hey guys, this is my first review here, feel free to comment..
Yesterday I recieved the DPL Suction holder for the N95. Due to the way it holds the device, I don't believe it will work with an N95-8GB, but I will test this later in the week and let you know.
So here it is:
This holder cost me £2 on eBay, plus £2 delivery, which took 5 working days. Needless to say, I didn't have very high hopes for quality/usability.
When I opened the parcel, I was looking at a cheaply printed box, which had been badly damaged in the post:
The contents of the box were, the suction mount/arm assembly, and the N95-specific clip. No paperwork or anything else
Heres the unit assembled:
It surprisingly felt tough and not like a cheap plastic toy.
From here, I was just more pleased with the unit as the seconds went by.
Firstly, it is extremely flexible:
Secondly, the part which puts it ahead of most of the other car holders out there, is that it doesn't Block off, or fowl ANY of the N95's Buttons/Sockets:
However, the camera lens is completely blocked off, which means no filming your driving.
The next great thing is that it secures nicely, with a reassuring click sound. I tried to remove it without pulling the release lever, and it was extremely difficult to do (without removing the rear N95 cover too). I don't believe the handset could fall out of the mount, even if you were off-roading on huge bumps.
Another great feature is that you can swivel the handset 360degrees in the holder, plus face it left/right to a small degree. Heres the unit mounted in my car:
