Looking for an inexpensive magnetic car smartphone mount? If you're handy, you should be able to make your own with Indigo's thin but strong neodymium 5x1mm disc magnets for a fraction of the price.
Because cell phones have internal magnetic compasses, you may want to avoid attaching magnets directly with adhesive backing. Use rectangular or round sheet metal plates with adhesive instead. Our magnets will firmly grip the plate which can also shield the phone's magnetometer from inadvertent close contact.
High strength N52 grade neodymium magnets aren’t likely to destroy your smartphone but beware of overpriced & underperforming ones as noted in these Google Reviews.

These folks sell authentic, high quality stuff and get it to you fast. Highly recommended! Read the full review by Tracy Myerson.

All Indigo 5x1mm thin neodymium disc magnets are guaranteed N42 grade, best bang for the buck. They are fully documented & guaranteed to hold over 200 grams. Three should be enough to support any size phone while avoiding magnet damage to your mobile device.
With the right choice of metal plate these magnets should work with any size or type of Apple iPhone or Android phones from Google, Nokia, Motorola & Samsung Galaxy.
