Holders for phones want to clamp your phone (landscape position) with clamps that squeeze either the off/off or volume toggle!
I struggled to my last note 5 and now this Redmi Note 10 Pro in a position where the clamp was not fouling or operating anything; but even then if your screen display goes off… operating the on/off button is tricky without a long finger nail under the clamp bar is not easy.
I see a 3D print design coming on - to put the pressure elsewhere…
Have the same thing, well had, with a HolyStone and Pixel phone.
Rotation won’t help as the switches then just foul the base of the clamp, and offsetting the phone adds a huge imbalance to the controller.
Answer, a few minutes to make and print up a small standoff rail the protects the switches which has worked for me.
All that it is needed is a U shaped section, the internal height of the U just clears the buttons and the lower edges of the U are shaped to mate to the phone or case.
Doesn’t need to be very thick, a 1mm wall is all you need.
Mine is built around a pixel 6 in a case so might not be quite the right size for anyone elses phone/case combo but I can post if needed. I suspect it will manage to work on most phones.
You don’t need any clearance on the buttons themselves, well no more than .5mm at most so overall the button cover can be quite ‘thin’. That means that all you need is 1.5mm ‘spare’ movement in the holder section for it to work.
Mines works even with a larger phone and a case. At worst strip off the foam off of the holder to but an extra .5mm
Not sure if I understand the issue then. How does a harness affect this issue?
When using my Mini 2 with my Redmi Note 10 Pro, I noticed that if I clip the phone into the Mini 2 controller’s bracket so that the phone’s USB port is on the right hand side … the top of the controller’s bracket puts pressure on the phone’s power button, which frequently switched off the phone.
My suggestion was to rotate the phone 180 degrees so that the phone’s power button is below the phone, instead of up top. The controller’s USB then goes into the phone’s USB socket which is now on the left (not right).
Since doing this, I have no more issues with the phone powering off due to the controller’s top bracket.
I can’t see the point in a lanyard unless I’ve a large tablet connected. Which I do with the M2P. If I were to do the same with the Mini 2, I’d try and avoid one that uses that top edge to fasten. Something like this seems better, and it protects the controller too.
