Review: iGrip Universal Fit Sturdy Swivel Mount for Nokia N95 & Nokia BH-700
So, I bought both these products a couple days ago, and thought I'd review them for you guys. I only recently started driving, and the other day on the news, they mentioned there was a $150 fine if you are caught talking on a cellphone, or even if there is a cell phone in your hand. There is not a lot to say about them though.
The iGrip mount is pretty neat. It fits any cell phone. The sides are adjustable, hence making it possible.
My main problem with this is the adhesive at the bottom. I don't know if it is like this with all of them, but the adhesive on the unit I got is not very strong. I've stuck it to the dashboard of my car, as you can see, but it is a little flimsy. My brother was putting a cd into the player yesterday, and accidentally hit the mount. It was a very light touch, but it caused the entire thing to fall down. The other possibility for this flimsiness could be the material my dashboard is made of. I'd give it a 7/10 on its stability at the moment due to its inability to stick properly. The sides are made of a foamy, cushion type material, so it doesn't press the buttons on the side of the N95. On the whole though, its a decent unit which can fit any phone, so that's good.
The BH-700 bluetooth headset. I did not do a lot of research before ordering this, as i needed one right away. It's not that bad though. It looks pretty decent and is small in size. The sound quality is good as well i thought. It's not out of this world, but it will do for me.
The range is pretty good. I'm able to hear properly all throughout my apartment.(It isn't very big). The talk time according to Nokia is 6 hours. I used it quite a bit in the last couple days and I'd put the talk time between 5.5 hours and 6 hours. The stand by time is around 160 hours according to Nokia, but I have yet to test that aspect. It takes 2 hours to charge the battery when it is completely empty.
The headset comes in black and white and you get one of the necklace things if you wish to wear it around your neck. It fits my ear very well and the controls are placed properly. There is a power button, volume control and an answer/hangup button (the one that says Nokia on it). The power button is a little hard to reach as it is very small, but both the other buttons are of decent size and very responsive, requiring light touches to press.
Like I mentioned before, I did not put a lot of research into these as i needed something right away. I tend to receive a lot of calls while driving and it gets very distracting. I'm sure there are better products out there if one looks, but for someone who wishes to know about these two, there you go.
