Whether you want to watch a video at home, follow a route in the car or keep your mobile in view at the office, smartphone holders can take many forms. A quick tour of what currently exists.



Smartphones and tablets are part of our daily lives. They contain our life. Beyond the functions of telephone and office automation, they also serve as a support for watching films, reading books, looking at photos, listening to music... provided you manage to hold them at arm's length without tiring. Otherwise, you will probably first use a book, a set of keys, or any other object that can support your smartphone or tablet.

Maybe you'll end up opting for a real stand, designed specifically to carry your device. There are now a multitude of them, small or large, mobile or fixed, with suction cup, with clamp, design, heavy, light, in different materials... In terms of prices, there is something for everyone, from 2 € to several hundreds of euros, depending on the type of smartphone supported and whether the support offers the possibility of recharging.

At home

It is obviously the use that will determine the type of support. For the home, you can opt for a compact support that can be deployed quickly anywhere. These "stand" type supports can be useful for watching a video or making a video call.

There are even some with a gooseneck, to be fixed on the corner of a table or on the edge of a bedside table. Convenient for watching a small series episode with your head on the pillow without ending up with ants in your hands.


In the office

When you're in the office and working with a tablet or laptop, it's better to tilt it for more comfort. The appropriate support will be rather sturdy, permanently on the desk, and ideally designed. To keep an eye on your smartphone at all times at work and be sure not to miss a call, the "stand" position is the most appropriate. And if you want to have a battery always charged, it is possible to turn to an induction charger. However, make sure that your smartphone is compatible with this wireless charging technology.

By bike or motorbike

The smartphone has now replaced most of our good old GPS, especially on bicycles or motorcycles. There too, there are specific supports to be fixed on the stem or the handlebars. Of course, this support must be able to easily accommodate the smartphone, but also resist vibrations and falls. A support that keeps the smartphone dry is also a good idea for two-wheelers.

By car

As we know, manipulating your smartphone while driving can be dangerous and cost you dearly in fines and license points. The range of car supports is vast (suction cup, clamp, magnetic...). Please note that not all cars are ideally suited to certain fixings, particularly those that grip the ventilation grilles. Check the format of yours before any purchase.

By plane

More and more pilots embark with them in the cockpit of iPads containing all the maps and documentation necessary for a flight, dedicated weather applications, the flight log, etc. There too, there are adjustable supports, with suction cups or to be fixed on the thigh.
