Ball Call is a mounting device for cell phones or tablets with a design that's reportedly been inspired by the ball-and-socket joint found in human knees and elbows. Each device consists of a compact socket that will stick to almost anything, such as the dashboard of your car or a table, and a small ball made of steel. This ball has been included so it can hold your device magnetically, in a horizontal or vertical position, at any angle of your choice.
The cost of Ball Call is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping for a total price of $27.98.

To begin using your Ball Call phone and tablet mount, stick the flat black base of the device to a flat surface you've selected. This flat surface could be in your home, in your car, in your workplace, or even on a boat. Once you've done so, you should notice that half of the device's small steel ball is sticking out of the black socket piece.
Next, with your ball and socket in place, stick the included slim magnetic disc to the back of the smartphone or tablet that you want to use the device to mount. If you have trouble sticking the magnetic disc to your phone or tablet while it's in a case, remove the case.
Once the magnetic disc is attached to the back of your phone or tablet, allow its magnetic power to attach it securely to the ball in your ball-and-socket device. You can attach the phone or tablet to the steel ball horizontally or vertically, depending on your preferences and what you plan on doing with the digital device. If you don't like the original position you put it in, you can quickly swivel it upward, downward, to the left, or to the right.
Your cell phone or tablet should stay securely attached to your ball-and-socket mount until you want to remove it. When that time comes, you'll be able to pull it off the mount's steel ball with a gentle tug and use it as you normally would in your hand. Unless you pull the mount off the surface you originally attached it to and transfer it to another surface, it'll be waiting in the same position to hold your digital device again when it's needed.
Some smartphone and tablet mounts make use of adhesive and suction cups to hold their bases or their backing steady, but these things won't stick properly to every surface. Mounts incorporating these materials often end up falling down, sending the phone or tablet that they're holding to the floor, too. On the other hand, each Ball Call uses magnets instead of adhesive or suctioning technology, which will make its hold on your digital devices more secure. Plus, its magnetic pieces will stick to almost anything and will likely tolerate more weight than a plastic suction cup or an adhesive strip.
Each of the three pieces that make up every Ball Call (ball, socket, and magnetic disc) is no bigger than an ice cube, which makes the entire device an extremely compact one. The ball will rest in the socket when you're not using it, and you should be able to carry this pair in virtually any pocket, backpack, handbag, or glove compartment. You'll have the choice of leaving the magnetic disc attached to your phone or tablet or attaching it to the steel ball for storage.
Every Ball Call comes in a combination of black and shiny gray. Not only will this color combination make it match the appearance of most smartphones, but it'll also allow it to complement the color scheme of a wide variety of vehicles. Moreover, if you ever drop your device, the shiny gray ball with black accents will allow you to spot it quickly.
Some mounts will only hold a digital device in one position, such as straight up and down or angled slightly toward or away from you. However, that won't be the case with your Ball Call, as it'll allow you to swivel the phone or tablet it's holding in a full circle, or 360 degrees. To find the ideal position for your current activity, such as texting or a video call, you can swivel your digital device around on the steel ball until you're completely satisfied. Its position can also be changed in seconds, if necessary.
If you just need one Ball Call for yourself, you can obtain a single one at once, but they also come in sets of two, three, or four. A larger set may be a good thing to obtain if you've got family members, roommates, or even coworkers who may benefit from using this type of mount.
Making video or audio calls while having to grip your phone in your hands at the same time could become annoying if you want to multitask. Fortunately, your Ball Call will enable you to mount your phone almost anywhere and use it without hanging onto it with either hand. Therefore, both of your hands will be free to type on your desktop computer, carry grocery bags, apply makeup, make dinner, or complete other tasks that are on your plate.
A mount with a suction cup or sticky adhesive strip may only be able to hold small to medium-sized smartphones without being able to tolerate the weight of a large phone or a tablet. The Ball Call mount should be able to securely hold up large smartphones and tablets of at least a moderate size, though, since each one's magnetic ball is made from durable steel. That makes this mount an ideal one to use when you want to watch a movie on a tablet with a screen large enough for at least a few people to see.
Along the same lines, this phone mount with its steel ball will likely last much longer than one with a plastic suction cup or adhesive strip. A plastic suction cup could rip after just a few weeks of use, and an adhesive strip could lose its stickiness after a few weeks or months, but the Ball Call may last for years. Even if you were to attempt to smash the steel ball inside each one, it might stay intact anyway, and the included magnetic disc is also made from metal that's stronger than plastic.
The Ball Call's base will naturally stick to a wide variety of surfaces, but for optimum results, you should make sure any surface is clean and dry before you stick the base to it. Similarly, the back of your smartphone should be clean and dry before you attach the magnetic disc. Sticking these pieces to wet or soiled surfaces may interfere with each piece's magnetic power.
