The Vodool can certainly hold Apple and Samsung smartphones with its unique K-shaped cradle but its awesome adjustability allows phones of the length 10.8cm ~ 16.8cm and the width 5.0cm ~ 8.5cm to fit meaning that virtually any smartphone is compatible – a great feature for people who have multiple devices or multiple drivers.
