Goal: Find a mount which would support a larger phone or smaller Android based tablet to enjoy Torque1. This mount needs to firmly grip the device and not allow it to vibrate a tremendous amount. It would also be nice if it didn't look horrible and was easy to mount the phone properly/quickly.

Solution: EXOGEAR ExoMount Tablet S

This mount retails for $49.95, and I believe it was worth every penny. It is hard to sharp shoot its faults when it does such a good job of fulfilling my goal.

Its flexibility guarantees that I will be able to use it in the future with other devices. I shouldn't outgrow this product quickly.

Now enjoy my crummy video and pictures. Tested it with the Note 2, Galaxy S, and HTC One so far...

On the Galaxy S4, it would be easy to charge and access the power button. Not so much for the headphone jack. Bluetooth is the key for audio if using this mount.

The charge port is not in the center of the HTC One. It would have to be offset in order for the charger to be plugged in. You also can't plugin a 3.5mm headphone jack. Again, use bluetooth if possible. You wouldn't want the device to go into sleep as it would be hard to press the power button.
