Sick of balancing your smartphone over your speedometer while navigating Google Maps? There’s a more comfortable (and safer) way to do things when you’re on the road. If you're done with fumbling with phone mounts that are constantly slipping, dislodging, or popping off, you can get for nearly 50% off at Amazon — but only 'til midnight!
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
If your phone has ever fallen off your mount mid-drive, you’re not alone. But Amazon customers swear by this mount, which offers three different ways to attach your smartphone to your car — it can clip to the vent, suction to windshield or stick to the dashboard. Once it’s installed, you can spin, raise or extend the arm to the position that best suits you. With more than 6,500 five-star reviews, you know it’s a mount you can count on.
“I liked this mount because it gave me options. The suction is really strong and the adjustable arm is great,” one noted. “The vent mount, however, I really liked. The best part of this particular mount is the ‘wings’ that support the mount against the vent and the adjustable clip. My other mounts wiggled around and swayed during turns. This one is well supported, has a good grip and releases easily. Definitely a keeper!”
This lightweight yet sturdy case provides shock-proof protection and elegant style. It has a raised screen silicone bumper and lips to protect the camera. 2,700 five-star reviews attest that it’s not just a pretty case and it's just $14 when you apply the on-page coupon (was $30).
“Any phone case is a compromise between heft/bulk and the degree of protection provided,” one noted. “My phone usually sits in my pocket so it is really only vulnerable when I take it out and hence I need an extremely robust case. This case from Humixx seems to hit that ‘sweet spot’ between providing adequate protection whilst not being too bulky. It sits nicely in the hand and the rubber bumper around the outside has a soft touch making it pleasant to hold. The rear is cystal clear which means that the Apple logo is perfectly visible through the case which is a nice touch. All in all, I really like this case and I can recommend it whole-heartedly.”
If you don’t like the vice-type phone mounts, this popular magnetic mount might suit you. It uses eight magnets to hold your phone in place no matter what kind of road you’re driving on. To mount it to your dashboard, it uses a high-performance adhesive that stands up to extreme temperatures. And, so you can adjust your phone’s position, this mount has an adjustable rotary ball joint. More than 4,000 Amazon customers give it a perfect five-star rating.
“This is the one, friends,” a wrote. “I have been to the mountaintop; I have seen the Promised Land. This magnet holds so hard I can't get it off without making a sound. I have tested it with a OnePlus 8T and my wife's iPhone 12 Pro Max. They don't budge at all in any orientation.”
A closely-watched measure of the UK housing market has reported a "surprising amount of momentum" despite the mounting cost of living crisis, with prices hitting a new record. The Nationwide study covering June showed the annual rate of house price growth easing back for the third month in a row, to 10.7% from 11.2% in May. "Nevertheless, the housing market has retained a surprising amount of momentum given the mounting pressure on household budgets from high inflation, which has already driven consumer confidence to a record low."
Bethany Haines, the daughter of an aid worker murdered in 2014 by ISIS militants, has met with one of his killers, Alexanda Kotey. David Haines was one of those abducted and executed by a gang of four dubbed the 'Beatles' due to their British accents. Ms Haines said she had an “honest, friendly conversation” with Kotey, who admitted that he was the one who abducted Mr Haines.
Boris Johnson is facing mounting pressure over groping claims against a Conservative whip, as two senior female MPs demand a "zero tolerance" approach to sexual misconduct in the party. Chris Pincher quit his role as deputy chief whip after allegedly groping two men - and the PM is being urged to kick him out of the Tory parliamentary group. Downing Street defended the prime minister's decision to appoint Mr Pincher to the whip role earlier this year despite concerns reportedly expressed at the time, saying it was "not appropriate to stop an appointment on the basis of unsubstantiated allegations".
