Likes:
  • Very easy to place the phone/take out
  • Phone is very stable (and position is adjustable)
  • Pretty clean install. Cables are mostly tucked under trims (see picture of cable before placing it under trim)
  • Phone does not auto-lock due to its position/Face ID - (I have a corporate policy on my phone that does not allow to cancel auto lock.) - make sure you go to Settings - Face ID & Passcode - turn off "Require Attention for Face ID"
  • Phone does not block the view
Dislikes
  • aesthetics are not perfect (might improve with a black sticker/skin on the MagSafe)
  • Phone is slightly blocked by the steering wheel

can I ask the OP how the Apple MagSafe charger works with this setup? I got the first spigen one tap holder, but the apple MagSafe doesn’t fit in that. And I see another holder, but how does that integrate with the first holder.
 
Works very well. You have to buy all the components in my list. You have to use this part for the Apple charger - take the original part out of the Spigen one and replace it with: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08S5WP4TN?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details&tag=tmc064-20

There have been a couple of time that the phone dropped due to a big pothole. Overall I love it. I also trust Apple’s electronics for charging more than some other vendors.

Thanks. just so i understand, there’s a part of the spigen onetap that I can take out? And then put in the spigen Mag fit holder? Do you think you can share some pics? Thamks
You have to remove a part from the one tap and also remove a part from the mag fit. Then you put the mag fit part into the one tap. That’s it.

Details: You take the part that has the swivel ball out by unscrewing the adjustment screw and pulling it out. (This is the part with the magnet that you attach the phone to.) The goal is to use the Apple charger so you remove the one tap magnet and replace it with a part that can hold an Apple charger.

I am traveling and cannot take a photo right now.
