I did not have this problem when I had my truck but since moving into a sedan my cellphone has nowhere to go. Putting in the cup holder is the game of round holes and square pegs. Sometimes I just throw it on the floor or slide it between my leg and the seat, if you can believe that. And yes, I have tried just about every cellphone mount there is. The 8 plus has gotten too big and havy for most of them. You would think by now there would be a built in holding place in cars. Considering how long it took them to come with cup holders, I am not surprised.

Volvos are the worst at this, as it has to do with safety - not allowing occupants to put objects where they might cause injuries in a crash. Had two '05s and the cupholders were set so far back we got tennis elbow drinking coffee while driving.

I suppose they could have molded in a rectangular recess or modular phone holder by how, but then they're contributing to driver distraction.

Maybe cellphones belong put away while driving. Hmm.

VW's have a nice spot for them below the center console with handy usb ports for charging/carplay/android auto.

Then you should complain to them about it and see what the say.

My Highlander has a great place in the dash for the phone and lots of other things.

I've found the best luck with an Amazon vent clip. I had to tie-wrap it in due to the aforementioned weight of phones, but it could go wide enough to hold a Mega. I think screens have just recently gotten bigger than 6.3".

I have compensated for the lost vent with the Heat/Air controls turned up to MAX. It usually works fine. Even on hottest days. Keep it charged and let it run. All max.

Most drivers seem to just keep it in their hand for easy texting and internet browsing accessibility.
