I got this case to go with my new iPhone 15 Pro.

[www.amazon.com]

Spigen Magnetic Ultra Hybrid MagFit Designed for iPhone 15 Pro Case

Great fit on the phone, buttons line up perfectly.
Nice lip around the screen side
Nice lip around the camera lenses as well.
Very strong magnet holds phone securely in my car while I drive, with this iPhone mount

Also it as a lanyard hole, perfect for using iPhone as a camera

Car mount I chose
[www.amazon.com]
so far, so good.

Magnetic charger/night stand
[www.amazon.com]
Stand, MagSafe charger and USB-c power adapter.

thanks for those

we went with this car mount, so not directly in front of the vent

[www.amazon.com]

we have used spiggens over the years, always seemed fine.

thinking about trying this one, with scalloped edges... but don't love the non clear edges

Curious if you don't charge your phone in the car, or if you plug a cable in?

I've been on the lookout for a Magsafe charging car mount with clamping arms. My brief test with Magsafe was that it was pretty strong with the bare phone, way too weak with a thin non-magsafe case, and ok with an add-on metal sticker. I like really thin cases, and haven't found a Magsafe case I like.

So far, this is the only Magsafe mount with clamps I've found [www.amazon.com] , and I tried it, but it was a little cumbersome to use and my van is a bit of a rough ride, so it still slipped out on occasion.


Thinking of trying this one next, with magnets and clamps, but not Magsafe, so it won't have the higher charging speeds for iPhone: [www.amazon.com]


And if I still hate that, then I may revert to the RAM X-Grip and just tape a Magsafe charger in the middle! [www.amazon.com]

Have you done a test drop to see how protective it is?

I went with [www.amazon.com] which has worked well for my iPhone 13 Pro.

I like the look of the Apple leather cases but I find they're insufficient protection.

I went with the Lamicall non-blocking mount.

My current car mount has a charging loop that's failed, so this will work fine, and I can plug in the charger if need be,

I like Lamicall stuff and have their charger-ready stand.

[www.amazon.com]

I was looking for 'Phone stands a couple of months ago and the selection has skyrocketed in a short time.

My ideal stand and mount would be a cradle style with a space for the charging puck.

Not likely, maybe I can cobble something DIY.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I did look at this one, but I decided to wait. Don't drive very much lately.

Gonna try to avoid that, for now. I dropped my iPhone 5 on a downtown sidewalk with a similar case, with a screen side lip. Landed right on the screen side.
"Dammit!" I yelled. Somebody walking by saw it, made a sour face and said "ewww"

Case had a scratch on the corner from the impact. Screen was not cracked or scratched at all.

Thanks for your review! I've been looking at cases as my wife and I plan to eventually upgrade to the 15 Pro from our 11 and 11 Pro phones.

I have been entertaining something different, but according to my Amazon history, I have purchased [HOLY CRAP] a total of EIGHTEEN!!! Spigen cases for family members dating back to the 6/6s. Almost all were Ultra Hybrid but none were MagFit (phones preceded MagSafe).

The choices/colors seem even more limited than they used to be, but I keep going back to Spigen because our phones have been the victim of 100s (perhaps 1000s) of drops with no repurcussions. We've had two cracked screens during that time, but both were the result of impact to the face itself.

I think this is a great idea - short reviews with a link

We're always looking for recommendations from people we "know" and I think many of us who have been on the forum for years and years have developed a level of trust with other members

I'll be posting my little review of an iPhone 15 case shortly
