    I purchased a highly rated car mount for the iphone called the iottie.

    I've only used it a handful of times and after inspecting my phone after taking it out of the case, there are three areas on the phone which are scratched. My phone is now scratched on both the left and right side, as well as on the back.

    I was perplexed at first; but then I realized the scratches on the phone correspond exactly to the points which are in contact with the iottie mount.

    The thing is, I never take my phone out of the case except for cleaning. The problem with the iottie mount as that the contact points are very small. That means that a lot of force is being generated at 3 small contact points (back button, side clamps), as everything clamps and snaps forcefully into place.

    This really ====es me off, as the phone generally looks good otherwise. Aside from the scratches which were originally on the phone Ughh.

    I just feel like tossing this phone in the trash sometimes.
