Works well, but doesn't fit oversized handlebars. – Bicycle Swivel Mount Holder for Samsung Galaxy Nexus i9250 - Black Reviews

Pros:
The phone clamping mechanism fits the Nexus Galaxy perfectly, and is easy to use and secure. Swiveling mechanism is nice. Everything seems to be well made. Its inexpensive.
Cons:
The handlebar clamp is also well designed, but will only work on conventional handlebars with 26mm or less diameters(about an inch). Modern bikes with threadless steerers typically use bars with a clamp diameter of 31.8mm, so on my modern road bikes it will only clamp far out from the stem, which interferes with the top bar riding position.
Other:
It would be better if they designed it to clamp to thicker tubes, with shims to reduce it.
Bottomline:
Does what it should, well, provided it fits your handlebars.
