Smartphone car mounts are a product most people don’t consider when buying the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+. However, when you get in your vehicle you will realize how important a good device mount is, helping you to get the most from your smartphone hands free.
And that’s important because people use their handsets for listening to music, contacting people, or navigating when driving. Of course, you don’t want to be distracted when driving, and holding a smartphone in your hand when behind the wheel is simply illegal in most countries. If you want to avoid a ticket from the cops but still use your Galaxy S10, a car mount is the best option.
Best Car Mounts for Galaxy S10
Considering these are affordable, it is a cost worth investing in. As you may expect, there are plenty of car mounts available, so choosing the right one can be tough. To help you out, we have recommended some of the best car mounts currently available. From affordable simple mounts to more complex mechanisms that will also charge your smartphone wirelessly, our list covers all bases.
Bolt Smart Automatic
It’s perhaps fair to describe the Bolt Smart Automatic as an excellent all-round car mount solution for the Samsung Galaxy S10 range. Among its interesting features is a touch sensitive panel that sits atop the device and allows the clamps to open, while an IR sensor closes them. This makes placing your S10 simpler and avoids you harming the device by squeezing it into the mount.
Elsewhere, the Bolt Smart Automatic’s Qi charging capabilities are a tier above rivals in terms of speed. Like most people, you probably keep your Samsung Galaxy S10 in a case. You’ll be happy to know the Bolt Smart Automatic supports most cases, so just pop your smartphone in and get charging.
Also worthy of mention are the 2-port charger that allows for more than one device to gain fresh battery life. The Bolt Smart Automatic also rotates 360 degrees, offering the ability to position your smartphone as you want.
Anker PowerWave Car Charger
Anker is one of the leading names in the charging market and its PowerWave range of wireless devices are available across various from factors. For the car, the PowerWave Qi charging car mount is one of the most versatile chargers you can buy at the moment. It delivers high speed charging at 10W for Samsung devices like the Galaxy S10.
One of the best features here is how the Anker PowerWave connects with the smartphone. Anker understands setting the mount for different handsets can be a struggle, so the company created an ingenious solution. The PowerWave features notation marks for major smartphone models, making lining up your S10 much easier.
As mentioned, this is a versatile charger which is case-friendly and comes with separate air vent mounts to function in most cars.
Trianium Magnetic Air Vent Car Mount
If you want a car mount that is portable, good-looking, but also able to remain under-the-radar, the Trianium Magnetic Air Vent could be the solution for you. Firstly, this is an aesthetically pleasing mount that sits with a premium quality in your vehicle. Even without your Samsung Galaxy S10 attached the Trianium mount looks good.
Because it clips directly onto the air vent the Trianium Magnetic is also portable, allowing you to easily move it to different vents or indeed different cars. This is a strong mount too, made from high-grade aluminum and anti-slip material. As the name suggests, the Trianium connects to your smartphone through 6 heavy-duty magnets.
Once connected, your Galaxy S10 will be completely secure. However, connecting to the mount requires you putting a magnetic strip on the rear of your smartphone. While this sound problematic, the strip causes no sticking damage to the fragile glass back of the S10. It is worth noting this pocket-sized mount will not charge your phone.
iOttie Easy One Touch Car Mount
Over the years, iOttie’s Easy One Touch mounts have become popular because customers value the spring-loaded connection method. Several models comprise this range, including an Easy One Touch that can be mounted to the dashboard. However, we think the model that connects to an air vent is superior, not least because your Galaxy S10 can stay cool during the summer.
Thanks to the one-touch spring-loaded mechanism, the iOttie Easy allows you to mount and dismount your smartphone from the cradle with a single hand. Placing or removing the Galaxy S10 takes seconds and does not require any fiddling. This method of mounting is exclusive to the iOttie Easy One Touch range thanks to a patent.
Once mounted, the cradle provides a telescopic arm that extends 4. 9” – 8. 3” and pivots on 225° arc for a number of usable positions. Due to Qi technology support, the iOttie Easy One Touch Car Mount can also charge your smartphone quickly for enabled devices like the Galaxy S10.
VAVA Magnetic Phone Holder
For those who want a car mount that gets the job done with minimum fuss, the VAVA Magnetic Phone Holder is a good option. Sadly, minimum fuss means there is no charging capabilities here, but the minimalistic design is perfect for keeping the mount hidden. Small and magnetic, the mount allows you to just easily place your Samsung Galaxy S10 without any effort.
VAVA’s mount is also fully articulated, allowing you to position it at an angle that best suits you, while it can be mounted on a dashboard or air vent. Even though it is small, VAVA has made sure to craft a good-looking product that does create an aesthetic appeal when sitting on your dash or air vent.
As mentioned, no charging is available with this phone holder, but that allows it to be more affordable than mounts with charging capabilities.
As you can see above, there are some excellent car mounts on this list, each an ideal choice for the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+. It is worth pointing out that each of these mounts will also work with just about any other smartphone you try as they are all universal.
