What a great product for my Galaxy S3!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iOttie HLCRIO102 One Touch Windshield Dashboard Universal Car Mount Holder for iPhone 4S/5/5S/5C, Galaxy S4/S3/S2, HTC One DROID RAZR HD - Retail Packaging - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)I am so very impressed by this car mount! I have a brand new Samsung Galaxy S III which is a pretty large phone. I have been searching for the right car mount forever and reading reviews of several different makers and models. This is the only one of which I couldn't find a complaint that it didn't fit or it was too wobbly or that the thing just didn't stick to the car surface well. And guess what? It's true! This is a firm holder that sticks like crazy (don't worry, it comes off ...eventually with a lot of muscle, it's just suction device so it won't harm you car interior). The only problem I had was I could get it to stick to the vinyl dash board of my Mini Cooper which is not exactly known for interior real estate. I finally decided on the plexi-glass that covers the gigantic speedometer in the center of my dashboard. It has held really well for a couple of days now, even in the heat of a 105 degree Southern California Summer. It makes me giddy thinking about how cool my car mount is, holding my new cool phone. By the way, this car mount even fits my phone with the protective phone cover on! It was under $20 which worried me that it would be a cheap product, but it just isn't so.

Which case do you have on the S3? Would a thicker case still fit in the mount?

Thanks for your comment on hot CA weather. I live in Florida and was wondering how the suction would survive all day in a parking lot.

Actually it's been installed for a few weeks now and its been up to 110 F. here, not to mention unusually humid, and the suction doesn't budge. We are very impressed, and very happy with the purchase.

I use a pretty thin case. I don't think you need a thick case for this holder. This is the case I bought: GreatShield Guardian S Series Slim-Fit Wave Design TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 S III (Blue). Although by now you probably got one and I am sure it fits well.

I would say measure the case and if it's greater than 3 inches, it probably won't fit. I have the GNex and I made it by like .5 cm.

Can the S3's camera see out to use it as a dashcam? Thanks for the great review!

Why not? I mean besides using up a ton of space on your phone quickly imo, you can in theory use it as a dash cam.

It works with my HTC Droid DNA + thin-ish bumper case, which is a little bigger than the SIII. Sturdy device, and so far it's sticking to my dash just fine.
