I have one from an ebay seller named CLIPOO but it does not look like they sell them anymore (see pic) It is made from one piece aluminium and is very strong. I mount it using a generic ebay "out-front" garmin compatible mount and it has never come loose after almost a year of riding. Initially it came with 3M double sided tape but I moved it to another phone so I used ordinary hot-melt glue and heated up the clip over a stove so the glue stayed liquid. I also sanded the back of the phone for extra grip (it's a cheap old plastic phone).
Some of the cheap generic ones on ebay do not have much of a stick area and I am wary of them but I have not used one.
You may be able to find a KOM branded one with a large sticking area (see old ad below) but I'm not sure if you want to stick it directly to a phone or use a case. If a case there is one on ebay called the Fouriers (see pic). It looks good and it appears you can just stick it directly onto a phone or use the screws to mount it to a case.
Also, try to put the mount in the middle of the phone and make sure there is clearance to twist it off.
