beware with these
the sticky bit to hold the phone is fine as long as the surface is straight and square in contact with the pad.
as for the windscreen bit. the sucker didn't work and they provide a sticky pad to use if the windscreen sucker doesn't work.. I used it and regretted it. it took half a can of "sticky stuff remover" to remove.
whilst I think it's a great idea in principle and certainly a good price. The actual implementation is very very poor.
Got one of these and it works brilliantly, much better than the other phone holders I have used. Well worth £9.99 so this is a barging.

Mine has been stuck to the windscreen for over a year and holds my phone well, never come off the windscreen. Did you do the lever on the sucker to make it stick? As for the sticky bit a quick wipe with a bit of soapy water and its as good as new. I may have been lucky but I found it a really good product.

I have read mixed reviews on Amazon, but my wife took the chance on it...I do find that with a lot of suction cups you have to ensure they are really firmly pressed against the window screen and lever firmly fastened to get an airtight seal. Also I am sure the curvature of certain cars windscreens can cause problems, as I am sure certain heated windows. May also be useful using some isopropryl alcohol on the intended spot to ensure surface is free from any grease.

One useful tip for these if you are intending on using just one phone with it...buy a cheap plastic case for your phone from eBay attach that to the grip pad and simply clip your phone in and out of that. Even with slightly curved backs of phones, the majority of phone cases have flat backs, and also leaving one permanently attached is useful in not having to wash the gripgo.

They have this exact one in my local pound land store.
I wouldn't use anything other than the kenu airframe plus well copy that is

In fairness to this, they are not the same as the ones in Poundworld (in fact as far as I am aware they are not available in Poundland), the Poundworld ones are imitation ones, not sure of their durability....but before stating they are 100% markup are you talking about exactly the same product?
Can't really complain about the price, but going off the Amazon reviews I would steer clear. 65 out of 127 reviews are 1 or 2 out of 5.

If anyone wants a really good quality one that comes with a 2 year warranty then get a Osomount one from Amazon. They usually about £16+ but worth the investment. Have used mine for over a Year without a single problem (and that's on motorways, bumpy roads etc). Complexly solid feel to it, the phone feels completely secure.
Yes I bought one cope days ago, same one from pound world...
It's piece of **** the rubber melts when it's very hot in the car
Agree with negative reviews. I used one for a month. Admittedly I used it a lot, but the green sticky part came away from the plastic. Good idea, but not a good product.

You Guys can have mine, it won't work if you have a gel case , it fell off. When it was new it was ok, now got a vent holder £1.84 from eBay
£1 in poundshop and homebargains
yes my one broke after a couple of weeks hence why I had to remove it. and use all that sticky stuff remover.. and yes I did use the lever to provide suction to the mechanism.
The one in PoundWorld ISN'T this one, slight variation in the name (GripIt not GripGo) and it's not a JML product, but does have VERY similar packaging.

Agree Kenu (or the blag ones) are good but not unless your air vents are horizontal or vertical. I've a Ford Kuga and they're on an angle so my Kenu is pretty useless unless I drive with my head tilted on a 45 degree angle.

Much cheaper than other similar items on Amazon. Hot for you

And who mentioned B & M. The deal is at Home Bargains?
The Pound World ones are an imitation product, but both my father and I have one and they are excellent quality and so far have been utterly reliable, securely holding a large smartphone or occasionally even a heavy old sat nav unit. And they stay stuck to the screen like a limpet. Well worth a quid.

If this JML one is anything like the cheap copy, I'd happily pay the £1.99 for it.
I would say no after watching the following review...

I bought one from Poundworld a while ago and tried it with my Nexus 5. When I tried to take it off it nearly pulled the back cover off the phone which is non-removable...
I had one it was great then the green thing lost its sticky ness - washed it and it got worse
I saw the one with the window suction cup for £2.99 in my local (Newtownabbey) store...

Mixed review sure but this is actually decent quality, even for the cheapo imitations. I mean, sure it's good quality and you get what you pay for, but I find £16+ a bit high for a phone holder. £1.99 vs £16+ I know what I'd rather go for.

On another note, I've been using a knock off from eBay that cost me £3 and it's not let me down, I leave it constantly attached to my windscreen and just renew it every so often. A lot easier than clip on mounts.

To all those suggesting cold because you can get it in Poundworld for a pound, look again as it's not exactly the same product. It may look it, but brand is obviously different which technically makes it another product.
As has been mentioned, sticks to the phone better than the windscreen. the whole thing (my HTC M8 too) would have disappeared out of the window if i hadn't had it on charge.
My son got it for me for fathers day but i ended up having to bin it

Not practical for all car types, and blocks an air vent....swings and roundabouts.
As others have said these don't grip to the phone if it's not a fairly smooth surface, which rules out a lot of cases - it's useless on both the Casemate Tough and the Speck case we have on our phones as they both have slightly raised patterns on the back. As a result mine went in the bin after the first time my phone fell off.
I had one of these & it was terrible.

The sticky pad stuck to my phone more than the unit, so it would come with the phone when I removed it.

The unit would also fall off my dash while driving, which made it useless.

Based on my experience, definitely not recommended, but maybe its better on phones with a less grippy back (not LG G3), & mounted to screen, not dash. At least it's very cheap!
DO NOT USE WITH ANY XPERIA Z PHONES I COULDNT GET MINE OFF IT AND ENDED UP BENDING THE PHONE BEWARE
£0.99 in pound world
