I would give it 0 stars if I could. I bought this Sept 14th 2014 and 3 months later it's dead.
The little feet on the inside of it which stick into the vents are all broken. And I never take it out of my vent.
Now the little feet are stuck in my vent.
So now it' useless
It's past it's return policy time and there's no way to contact anyone. Nice.

Be aware that this is a fake product being sold. I contacted kenu and they informed me that the product I purchased is fake replica from China. Looks exactly same as original but the box it came in led me to suspicion.

This is my second Airframe, they are very good. I have two because I have two phones, a personal phone and a work phone. Kind of a pain, but sometimes I need to carry both.

The Airframe easily holds my workphone, an IPhone 5S in an Otterbox case. It also easily holds my personal phone, an IPhone 6S Plus in an aftermarket case. The Airframe pushes onto my car air vent after I attach the phone by sliding the arm outwards and placing the phone inside, then releasing the arm to close onto the phone. It holds the phone pretty securely when done correctly and even after hitting some hard bumps at speed the phone did not slip out and the Airframe did not fall from the air vent.

The Airframe does not adjust for viewing angle, that is done by placing your vent up or down. I find if I insert the Airframe on the lowest vent slat then I get the best viewing angle for me based on my vehicle. The Airframe will block a vent, but since I use the upper defroster vents and the lower feet vents 99% of the time, it does not effect me. I hardly ever use the dash vents as I like a lot of air movement when driving, but I do not like the air blowing directly on me.

I’ve owned all the previous generation Kenu’s and given them as gifts. I love it despite the fact that my phone ends up angled away from me against my vent. With the Kenu Pro, I’m able to angle the phone more vertical so that it’s much easier to see. The new push mechanism to mount on the vent works wonderfully as does the 360 swivel. It’s been completely solid in my drive test so far. The swivel is very easy to adjust so I worry that it may loosen up over time but it’s totally solid in holding my phone steady.

There are many knock offs but you really go get a higher quality product for the price.

This one is the real deal. Of all the junk out there, this one actually works. I travel for a living and keep this little sucker in my travel bag. When I jump in a rental car, this is the first thing I grab. It allows me to keep my familiar iPhone map application in my view in an unfamiliar vehicle. I don't have to take a crash course in a new nav system or chase my phone around the cup holder when trying to negotiate the Jersey Turnpike.

I bought white, so that it stands out and I don't forget to put it back in my bag before returning the rental car, which has happened with 2 black ones.

I have bought other vent mounts for my iPhone 7, but this one is the only one that holds the phone, easily stays put and is easy to use. Not bulky to store, it easily travels. I have a black one that lives in my daily driver.

I really like the Kenu Airframe+ as it's the only car mount I have found that works with my large Nexus 6P and the bumper around it. I tried other mounts that were magnetic and the adhesive wore out over time, and larger mounts with a swivel arm with a dashboard suction cup that couldn't hold the weight of a large phone.

The Kenu Airframe+ vent mount on the back has a simple option for thick or thin air vents and fits perfectly into the vents on my 2017 Kia Sportage. I have driven with the Kenu Airframe+ for a few weeks and it doesn't bounce or shake at all when I turn corners or hit bumps in the road. The phone holder itself has a very solid grip on the phone and it keeps the phone securely in place. I also like the size and portability of the Kenu Airframe+ so I can carry it in my pocket if I need to use it on my desk or another flat surface.

My only serious complaint here is with the holder for the phone. I knocked it one star because of this. It is impossible for me to easily remove the phone from the Kenu Airframe+ with one hand. I have to remove the Kenu Airframe+ from the air vent, then pull back on the spring with both hands to remove my phone. When I get back into my car, I have to insert my phone back into the Kenu Airframe+ with both hands and put it back into the air vents. Over time, I can see where this repeated removing and inserting the mount into the air vents will either damage my vents or the Kenu Airframe+ rubber mounts on the back.

I wish there was a one button feature that allowed me to easily insert or release my phone in the Kenu Airframe+, otherwise it's annoying having to struggle with the spring mount just to get my phone in and out of the Kenu Airframe+ Hopefully, there is a simple hack that would allow for this to happen. I really love the Kenu Airframe+ but it just needs to be more accessible with one hand.

This is clearly much more highly engineered and planned that the cheap ones you get at a carwash for a few dollars.

Look closely at all the AMAZON text and pictures. It is solidly built. It has a firm "clip" that you push to "open" then "lock" the jaws on the vent. One of the main issues is that many car vents are recessed, narrow, or have prominent "finger tabs" that make it hard to "clip". This one works ok with both our cars. A new feature is a ball swivel that lets you turn the phone face somewhat to face you. Since it is nearly flush to the dash and vent, it will be a small pivot. The phone clamp holds my phone firmly (iphone 5SE).

I like using vent phones because (A) the phone is much smarter and more intuitive than my car's built in GPS, and because (B) the vent position gives easy access to a charging cord without the cord running all over the place like to the top of dash or to a window mount. I'm often listening to podcasts or audiobooks for which it is best to have the phone securely and visibly mounted.

I've been using this Kenu for a couple of years now and have since bought several as gifts to people who admired mine when I was driving. It seems to hold my iPhone 6S in place very well, but it almost requires two hands to take the phone out if you want the clip to stay on the vent. You can minimize the phone covering the vent but some of the vent will always be covered up so you'll lose some air flow. I have noticed that it will not work on all cars as you have to have a flat squared vent so that you can get a tight fit on the vent slits. My Legacy middle vents won't work because they are angled but the side square vents work fine. Overall, this is a handy little phone mount that is simple and easy to use compared to some of the over complicated phone mounts that are available.

I've bought 2 others like this. First one I got from Wal-Mart was $10 and it was good, but started coming apart. Then got one off amazon for the same price and was super annoying to use. I decided to fork up the money for this one and i love it. It opens smoothly and holds my s8 in its case well. Highly recommend it.

I prefer a cell phone holder that clips unobtrusively to a vent (as opposed to mounting to the dash or windshield) and is small enough for travel if need be, so I went with a Kenu since I own and very much like the previous generation Airframe+. This one is marginally bigger because of the clip mechanism and swivel joint that increase the stability and convenience mounting big or heavy cell phones. Price point seems a bit high, but it for sure is not a cheaply-made product.

This takes up very little footprint in your car and once clipped to your vent, it is very sturdy. Note that the vent itself may move, so heavier phones will tilt down due to gravity, and in most cases, that problem is solved by attaching toward the lower third of the phone so that it has little room to tilt before resting on the console face.

Unfortunately, this one won't mount to any recessed vents, such as the center horizontal vents of a 2017 Lexus ES 350, where there's not enough clearance above or below for the shallow clips to grab onto something. If the vent clips were longer, it could protrude deeper into a recessed vent for secure contact.
