Cell phone mount?

Anyone have a cell phone mount on their bike? It would be nice to have since I find myself wondering the time, because my speedo seems to be off by 5 or so depending on speed, and because I'd like to use the phone/Bluetooth for tunes. I know I know pay attention to the road etc and I agree with that. So anyone find a good cell phone mount?

Purchased 5/3/2015 w 10,600 miles
No mods I'm aware of

I looked at RAM Mounts. I found one in a Honda dealership that I bought - I think TechMount is the brand. Wasn't terribly cheap - but seems sturdy. These are the 2 pieces I got. Have used it several times (iPhone 5 and 6)

Here's the one I got, the RAM Aquabox. After probably too much research, I went with this one because it's water proof and because the touch screen works through the plastic. Check your phone's size and the mount sizes though, most newer phones are larger too...
