Damir, Apart from that particular unhappy experience, did you like the X-Grip? I've never used one, but am thinking about it.
Sete, I like RAM products, they are robust and very adjustable with the purchase of different joints.
The problem is there are still too many buttons on each side of an average smartphone, so the RAM XGrip clamps need to be positioned too close to the top left and right corners of the phone, to clear the Volume up and power buttons. Using the RAM rubber tether is the only way to trust that your phone will not fall, but the rubber will overlap the four corners of your screen, blocking some information, so I don't like that part.
Lately with the smartphones pushing 2K and in lieu of my mishap I simply don't trust these plastics enough,...I use this analogy; "it's kind of like trying to hold a $2K bundle of cash, holding it by the outside edges, using only the NAILS of your four fingers, on the bumpy highway, well into 3 digits winds"
...hmmm no thx, I am using one in my truck only, and it works good there.
I also have a few of them RAM suction cup mounts for my action cams, and I don't trust those either, and always add a tethering string (just in case)...if I ever do skydiving I will ask for TWO parachutes
Phones are taking over our lives and are a BIG distraction anyway (I can't believe I said that), and especially they don't belong on the handlebars of a motorcycle. I love technology and my smartphone, but will try and keep it in my pocket, since ridding a bike require all (200%) of your engagement and concentration.
