You really cannot compare the two mounts. The Exomount is just a plain jane mount and the one from Proclip is part of a permanent install solution (need 2 parts; one for car and one for phone). Personally; I've used Pro-Clip for years and the items they make/sell are rock solid. Yeah, they are a tad pricey but, worth every cent they charge.
I ended up getting the mountek early. Just a heads up that it does not fit the 2008/2009/2010 Subaru WRX.
Hands-down the best mount for a phone in a car is RAM. It's expensive, but it's the last mount you'll ever buy. Lifetime guarantee - not that you'll need to use it - they won't break! They use a modular design in 3 parts:
The Cradle - the part that holds your device. They've got dozens of different kinds to hold everything from a cell phone, pda, radios, gps, fishing rods, cup holders, and even laptops. I have the "Finger Grips" - it's reconfigurable for different devices and holds very well.

A newer/better cradle is the X-Grip: Universal RAM X-Grip™ Holder & Mounts
The Arm - The cradle and mount both have a ball on them. The arm has a socket on each end and can be tightened. Both the balls and the arm are coated metal, so you can REALLY wrench down on it and secure it. No more drooping windshield mount!
The Mount - Many many many different mount options. You can get the traditional windshield mount, a vent-mount, handlebar mount, flat surface mount, or one of many vehicle-specific mounts. I opted to use a flat mount and just screw it directly into the dashboard. I was sick of windshield mounts that fall of the window when it gets hot or cold. This mount is ROCK SOLID now.
I don't have a photo with my phone up on the dash handy, but here's what the mount looks like with my old-school TomTom:
