Where do you sit your bigass Phone?

Just bought a iPhone 6 plus and it doesn't fit anywhere. What have you Samsung Galaxy Note or any other bigassphone users been doing?

LOL this is terrible. Steve Jobs was right! Smaller phones will always be better...

I have an HTC One it fits in all the storage areas.

1. Pocket
2. (FRS) under climate control- BRZ has a big silly start button in the way.
3. Center in cup holder phone slot

Yeah. Like ciro said. Center console.

If it won't sit upright in that little wallet-slot, maybe take the cup-holder insert out altogether and just lay the phone in there.

Possibly the cup-holder in the driver's side door panel could be padded appropriately to receive a phone.

There's definitely a lack of catch-alls in these cars.

I use a kenu airframe mount and it mounts to my vents. I had to make a couple supports to hold the vent up (using plastic USB cord covers) and it works really well, though it did fall off a couple times around corners when it wasn't secured very well.

I have a Nokia Lumia 1520 which makes any other phone on the market look small.
I sit it in the passenger seat or in the phone slot where the cup holder is.
The phone may not lay perfectly in the slot but it still stays in place just fine.


My ultimate goal is to get a phone mount for the dash and use the damn thing as a HUD.

Had a buddy get a ticket just for having his phone sitting in his cup holder. Cop said if it is out it is "being used". Not how the law here reads and he will take it to court but I always keep mine put away now.

I have a Samsung Note 3 and use a Beatsonic dash phone holder in my FRS. Works great and easy access when driving. Search for the Beatsonic group buy thread or contact them directly to get the best pricing.

How the hell did the cop know his phone was there?

I have a 10 Series which has the push-button start like the BRZ Limited and the little slot next to it fits my 4.7" iPhone6 perfectly. That slot was one of the main reasons I didn't get the 6+.

Scosche Magic Mount to the right of the radio on the flat surface. Metal plate in a TPU case held to the back of the phone'. Worked great on my 5s, still works great with my LG G3.

I've been putting mine in the space left in front of the cup holder. Like between the cup holder and where the outlet is in the center console. Slides right in there upright.

I put my phone in the cell phone slot in the cup holder. With the charger plugged in right in front of it, it works perfectly.
