Closer Look
The H1-Touch Holder is made of aluminum and is very sturdy. The aluminum structure weighs in at 205 grams. Like many devices that are geared to Apple products, the H1-Touch comes in a gray color. But Thermaltake knows there are more than just Apple users out there so they also offer a black and red model.

You have to love the design of the Luxa2 H1-Touch holder. It’s simple and sleek. It has a real essence of elegance that says modern all together.

The upper half of the H1-Touch consists of the moving parts in the device. The front portion is a series of arms with joints that adjusts in different angles to hold the device. At the end of each arm are rubber coated pods. These pods are used to hold a firm grip on the device placed between them.

Blocking your view of the area where the arms meet is a black rubber padding that feels a little sticky adding a little more security to the gripping device.

This whole assembly can be rotated 90° to allow for horizontal or vertical display. You can also adjust the viewing angle up or down.

In the image below, we get a good visual presentation of what enables all of the features and functions mentioned above.

As you can see everything here is metal which should result to long years of quality operation. While taking a minute to play around with the device we found it did not make an ounce of noise.

When it comes to branding, only the Luxa2 reside near the bottom of the base.

To help plant the device to the surface of a table is a rubber footing.

Conclusion

A real mobile phone user would love a device like the Luxa2 H1-Touch holder. When we say ‘real’ users, we are talking about the individuals that use their mobile phone often especially as a video or audio player. You wouldn't fully enjoy listening to your favorite music or viewing the latest movie from Hulu while holding the phone for a long time. Placing it in the H1-Touch, you can sit back and enjoy without worry.

The H1 is pretty sturdy and has a fair amount of weight to it and because of this you do not have to worry about your phone tipping over, even if you are one of those people that have the larger extended batteries. There is another reason for the H1-Touch’s sturdiness and it’s the wide base.

The H1-Touch is made of solid aluminum and built well. This is one of the reasons why it is a good buy with it being around $30. I am sure you could find some plastic copies of a device like this. Plastic is light, chances are you won’t be getting the kind of quality and sturdiness the H1-Touch offer and it would likely put your device in danger.
