Best universal car mounts

Keep your phone safely in sight and secure with a car mount.

When you're on the go, your phone is more than just a tool for keeping in touch. It's your road trip playlist and your GPS, too. For safety's sake, mounting your phone to your dashboard, windshield, or air vents is the best way to keep it in view while keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. We've gathered up a list of some excellent options for universal car mounts, and trust us, there's no shortage of choices out there.

iDoo Qi Car Charger Mount

iDoo Qi car charger mount

The car mount from iDoo is one fantastic multi-tasker. It offers wireless charging for your Qi-enabled phone, or space for a charging cable if you need to plug in.

You have three installation options: dashboard mount, air vent clips, or windshield mount. Take the time to experiment a little with the best sightlines for your phone when you're ready to get set up so you'll know which variation works for you. The cradle arm is completely adjustable, so you can avoid glare, and the frame rotates 360 degrees. No matter where you put it, the mount will be an essential part of your commute.

Affordable Universal Car Mount

This offering from Affordable is as minimalist as they come, and you know what that means: no obstructed view. It's ideal for dashboard or windshield installation.

It's simple to install and remove when you're switching vehicles. Bonus points are also awarded to this mount for living up to the name Affordable. It's also been favorably reviewed for some time now; it won't drop your phone when you're travelling bumpy roads, and potholes won't shake it's grip.

Koomus CD-Eco Car Mount

Koomus CD dash mount

Remember when you kept stacks of CDs in the backseat so that you'd always have your favorite tunes close by? Well, your phone takes care of the songs these days, but your CD player can still be put to good use. The Koomus mount uses it to hold your phone in a very convenient place.

The low-profile mount is easy to install, and your CD player won't be damaged or even recognize that it's in use. The flexible clamps hold your phone securely with or without its case. You can also rotate your phone 360 degrees for easier viewing.

iOttie Easy One Touch XL Car Mount

iOttie One Touch XL car mount

iOttie's car mount is available in a few different versions, but we're going to spotlight the XL. The suction cup is tough, and won't budge from your dashboard or windshield. If you favor dashboard mounts, you can choose to add their Sticky Gel Pad for some extra grip, although most users say they don't need it. The windshield mount won't obstruct your view, either.

The XL is an especially solid choice if your phone case adds a little extra bulk, since the cradle is designed to hold larger phones to begin with. Your phone can rotate 360 degrees, and if you need to remove the mount and put it in a different vehicle, a quick rinse and dry of the suction cup makes it good as new again.

New Trent Arcadia Magnetic Mount

New Trent Arcadia car mount

For something completely different, check out the mount from New Trent. It holds your phone with a strong magnet, and installs onto your air vents. You don't have to worry about snapping your phone into a cradle, just stick it to the magnetic pad and you're on your way.

The base mount is available in black or blue, and comes with two magnetic plates you can stick to the back of two devices, especially handy if you share your car with other family members. The magnetic plates are thin enough to fit into your phone's case, and strong enough to adhere to the base without having to constantly removing the case every time you get in the car.

WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Mount

WizGear universal car mount

Wizgear produces another magnetic car mount we're a fan of.. The magnet is strong on this one, and if you take the mount out of the car, it doubles as a kickstand for your phone. The magnet can be concealed inside most phone cases, so you won't have to constantly remove the case before sticking your phone to the mount.

The air vent clips keep your phone highly visible without obstructing your view. The base swivels your phone into your preferred position and promises to keep it there until you move it, even when going over rougher terrain. It's perfect if you just need to jump in the car and go with your phone at the ready.

Spigen Style Ring

Spigen Style Ring

An inexpensive alternative for car mounts is the Style Ring. The mount is a tiny black hook that sticks to your dashboard, and the ring sticks to the back of your phone. If you're not wild about sticking things to your car or device, this may not be the right choice for you, but it's convenient.

The ring that attaches to your phone doubles as a kickstand in both portrait or landscape. It hooks to just about anything, so you might find yourself hanging your phone from a variety of places. Positioning the car mount might take some patience to get it just where you'd like it to stay, but it works well for hands-free calling and accessing music. Your phone snaps into place and swivels 360 degrees. It's the smallest car mount you can find, so if space on your dashboard is at a premium, the Style Ring is a solid option.

The bottom line

First and foremost, you need to know the details of your local laws, in terms of whether or not you are allowed to mount anything on your windshield. Next, you need consider how often you'll use a car mount and where in your vehicle it's going to be. Each of these car mounts have distinct advantages all their own, but we think that versatility and durability are the most important qualities to look for.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

Ultra hybrid: all that is hybrid (apparently).

Galaxy S7s are pretty fragile if dropped the right (wrong?) way. You're gonna need a case, so we went hands-on the Spigen Ultra Hybrid, to give you a better idea of whether or not it's the right fit for your phone and your habits.

If you want to let the beauty of your S7 shine through, with a case that feels a little sturdier than those soft TPU cases, then this is the one for you.

We'll break things down in terms of style, features, and design.

Style

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

The Ultra Hybrid comes in three color options: Mint, Crystal Clear, and Rose Crystal. The colors are only around the outer rim, maintaining a transparent back to show off your S7 in all its glory.

With a hard polycarbonate back and a softer TPU bumper around the rim, the Ultra Hybrid can feel a bit slippery at times, especially if your hands get a bit greasy. However, there is a seam that runs all around the rim of the case, where the TPU and polycarbonate meet, that helps keep it stable in your hand.

This is by no means an "ultra-slim" case, but it doesn't add a ton of bulk or weight to the S7; although, it being clear may create an illusion of thinness.

Features

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

The Ultra Hybrid is just about as basic as cases get, aside from being made of two materials, but the thinner polycarbonate backing does allow for wireless charging. Many polycarbonate cases are just too thick, but not Spigen's, which is a great feature, since you don't have to take it off your phone every night to charge.

Design

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

This particular Spigen case underwent the military drop test, which the Department of Defense uses to approve devices for military applications. We still wouldn't take this one off to war, but it's built to withstand some pretty solid drops.

Each corner has a small air pocket that helps with shock absorption — an ideal feature for the Galaxy S7, since dropping it on its corner results in a big ol' spider web of cracks (Google "Galaxy S7 dropped on corner" and you'll see). The front features a raised bezel, so you can safely lay your S7 on its face without worrying about it getting dinged up.

The Ultra Hybrid covers all the buttons, but leaves all the ports at the bottom wide open, so you're entirely unencumbered for using third-party cables. The power button isn't an issue, but if you happen to get an ill-fitting Ultra Hybrid, the volume buttons might be a tad finicky.

This case is designed for those who want their phone to feel protected, because it certainly does feel sturdy and formidable in your hand, albeit a bit slippery.

The bottom line

Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Galaxy S7

This case is for you if you want a case that's easy to put on and remove, one that'll provide solid protection, and one that won't drastically change the look of your Galaxy S7.

If clear cases are what you're after, but this one doesn't quite do it for you, then you should check out our roundup of the best clear cases for the Galaxy S7.

Best Accessories for Nexus 6P

Want to get the most out of your Nexus 6P? Check out these great accessories!

Your Nexus 6P is a powerful device, and right out of the box it works like a dream. Of course, you can always turn your Nexus 6P into a force to be reckoned with by getting a few little extras.

Accessories are the spice of life — they change your phone from ordinary to extraordinary. If you want to kick up the wow-factor with your Nexus 6P, take a look at these awesome accessories we have rounded up for you.

Chromecast

Chromecast

If you haven't heard of Chromecast you probably live under a rock! All joking aside, we can't recommend this great device enough.

Chromecast is a small, little receiver that plugs into your TV via the HDMI port and allows you to stream the display from your phone onto your TV screen. You can look at pictures, watch video, and even play music through Chromecast, making it great for entertaining everybody.

There are plenty of Chromecast-compatible apps and the number is growing. As long as you have Wi-Fi in your home (or wherever you plan on using it) Chromecast will take you to bigger and better screens!

See at Google

Maxboost tempered glass screen protector

It's hard to enhance the wow-factor of your Nexus 6P if the screen is cracked or smashed — that's why screen protectors are so great!

This is a tempered glass screen protector which means it's going to give you the best protection against scratches and scrapes. The Maxboost protector is hydrophobic and oleophobic which means you shouldn't have to keep wiping your screen as it will be resistant to the oil on your fingertips.

It's worth mentioning that Maxboost has a lifetime warranty for their screen protector, so if it ever does scratch they will ship you a new one free of charge!

See at Amazon

Anker PowerCore+

If you are constantly running out of battery power on your Nexus 6P, we have the ultimate solution for you.

Anker's PowerCore+ is a beast! It has a huge capacity of 20100mAh, which means it can fully charge your Nexus 6P five times before you need to charge it again! On top of its huge capacity, it also has two USB ports, allowing you to charge multiple devices at once.

It's quite small for having such a large capacity, making it perfect for carrying around. It's also a rugged in design, so minor scrapes and drops shouldn't hurt it too much, making it great for camping or road trips!

See at Amazon

Cable Creation 10ft charging cable

You may be thinking this seems a little ridiculous, but you have no idea just how useful a long charging cord can be until you try it.

This 10-foot long cable will allow you to move around while still charging your Nexus 6P. Vacuuming the living room? Cooking in the kitchen? It's never been easier to have the freedom to roam around the room.

The cord is wrapped in a fabric weave to give it a stylish look, but it also makes the wire inside fully protected from the outside. If you spill anything on this cord it could stain, but it shouldn't really affect it's performance at all.

Photos Live Case

Photos Live Case

Straight from Google themselves, the Photo Live case is meant to be as unique as you want it to be. It's a simple one shell case that features a photo of your choosing, making it perfect for treasuring a precious moment, highlighting your favorite photo, or even using a unique print from your favorite artist.

The Photos Live case also has an app you can download in order to turn your wallpaper into a rolling slideshow, making it feel like your case is integrated into your Home screen!

A case like this, could make you the talk of all your friends or even make a timeless gift for a close friend or loved one. The Photo Live case is available for all Nexus phones.

Best cheap cases for the Galaxy S7

Best cheap cases for Galaxy S7

Protect your phone while protecting your wallet.

Now, it's no secret that buying a really cheap case probably won't offer you the best degree of protection or the nicest look, but not all cases need to break the bank. So, for all you dollar-wise budget beaters, we've rounded up some of the cheapest cases we could find that still have something to offer.

EasyAcc

EasyAcc's clear case is as simple as you can get and, while it's nothing special to look at, this case is made out of TPU, which is extremely flexible and feels super grippy.

This case is not only completely transparent, allowing you to enjoy the natural beauty of your Galaxy S7, but also totally seamless. The edges of EasyAcc's case are slightly raised to help prevent damage to the screen if you drop your phone on a flat surface.

Just beware of stretching and yellowing of the plastic. The TPU will absorb light super easily, which is what causes the discoloration.

This case is super cheap, starting around $2.60.

See at Amazon

Tekcoo Tbaron series

The Tbaron series from Tekcoo is surprisingly rugged for only starting around $7.99. It's a two-layer system that consists of a silicone skin that your phone sits in and a back plastic cover that clips on over the silicone shell. Even with both layers, all the buttons and ports of the Galaxy S7 are easy to access.

The case looks and feels very similar to Otterbox's Commuter series except with one major difference: that hard plastic back cover feels pretty slippery, which means it will be great for sliding in and out of your pocket. However, slipping out of your hands could happen, so tread carefully with this one.

Coming in a wide variety of vibrant and bright colors is an added bonus of the Tekcoo Tbaron series. If you're looking for a cheap case that adds some bulk and some flash to your S7, this could be the case for you.

Spigen Exact-Fit

It's a simple and unassuming-looking hard polycarbonate shell that easily fits around the Galaxy S7 and will protect your phone from minor scratches to its back and sides. It does have a bit of a lip above the screen; however, it's not quite enough for us to say laying it down screen-first is 100 percent worry-free.The case does get a little thicker around the camera at the back to protect the lens from getting scratched. Even so, it still manages to feel pretty light.

The sides of the Galaxy S7 are a little more exposed that some of your average cases, especially around the headphone jack and charging port located at the bottom of the phone. So it probably would be wise to use this case if you expect to be bumping the sides of your phone on objects.

All-in-all if you are looking for a pretty simple case that is also highly functional and only around $9.99, look no further than Spigen's Exact-Fit.

Cimo heavy duty shock absorbing hybrid

Who says cheap can't mean fun? Cimo's heavy-duty shock-absorbent hybrid case is great for anyone looking to make a statement, especially if that statement is "I like pink!" And, although this case may cause your eyes to catch fire with it's brightness, it actually has some decent features.

It's a one-piece case that is both a mix of hard polycarbonate and silicone that adds a little bit of bulk, making you feel like the phone is safe in your hand. The back of the phone has a pleasant texture that isn't slippery at all, and it's thick enough around the camera to protect the lens from scratches.

Of course, the funky colors and embedded rhinestones aren't really going to make this case for everyone. However, we should mention that it does also come in non-eye-assaulting colors such as black, so for the low price of around $7.98, it's worth checking out.

ArtMine window view wallet case

This wallet case has one card slot so you can always have your bank account at the ready, and the flip cover will protect most of your phone screen. It does have a big square hole in the front cover, which is a good way to always be able to see the time whenever you want. This case is also very thin and won't make your Galaxy S7 seem bulky at all which is kind of rare for a wallet case.

Now, this case is probably best for people who are looking for a wallet case that won't break the break. After all, it starts around $8.90 which is pretty good for a case that has some screen protection built-in.

Where to buy LG G5 modules

Where to buy LG G5 modules

You've heard about modules for the G5, now where can you get them?

The LG G5 has been designed so you can swap in and out component modules to add extra function or utility to your phone. This is a cool option for people who hope to customize their phones for enhanced photo-taking abilities, improved audio playback, or functions yet to be imagined. But when talking about the G5, what exactly is a module?

What are modules?

Modules are attachments which add new or expanded capabilities to your LG G5. LG has created an accessories category for the G5 called "Friends." This means every module is a Friend; however, not every Friend is a module. Make sense? Sorry.

The generic term LG is using to classify its tech accessories for the LG G5 is "friends." These Friends include modular devices that can be swapped on and off of the phone, but among the Friends there are non-modular accessories like the LG Rolling Bot, LG 360 Cam and LG 360 VR headset.

If you're looking for current, first-party modules available for your LG G5, your options are limited at this point.

What modules are available?

At this point there are only a few available modules, but LG and third party manufacturers will presumably be creating new ones to add to your phone in the future:

  • LG Cam Plus — Makes your LG G5 feel and function like a professional camera. It includes physical buttons for shooting and focusing, as well as a zoom wheel, for added convenience when taking photos or video.
  • LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play — Designed in collaboration with Bang and Olufsen (B&O), this module is for true audiophiles who want the best audio quality from their smartphone. Currently unavailable in North America. Learn more about the LG Hi-Fi Plus here..
  • LG Tone Platinum Wireless Stereo Headset — These futuristic, wireless headphones feature a stylish design with retractable earbuds, and provide you with quick access to all sorts of features and controls via Bluetooth.
  • LG 360 VR — Experience the world in glorious 360 VR with these visor goggles build specifically for the LG G5. Learn more about how the VR headset and the 360 cam work together.
  • LG 360 Cam — The perfect pair for your 360 VR headset, this LG Friend lets you take epic 360 degree pictures and video — including directional sound — so you can share exactly what you're seeing and hearing are with friends, family and the rest of the world.

Right now you can purchase the LG Cam Plus which is a camera grip accessory for your phone to make it feel and function more like a traditional digital camera.

Where do you buy modules for the LG G5?

The LG Cam Plus is the only module that is available right now in the U.S. for the LG G5. It's available through certain carriers and online retailers. LG allows you to search for a retailer near you on their website.

If you don't want to go that route, you can also put in an order through Amazon for this handy camera accessory.

See at Amazon

The Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play module is only available in Europe for the time being, and until the U.S. models of the phones receive software updates the module won't work with devices stateside anyway. So unless you have a European LG G5, you're going to have to wait for the B&O Play module.

See at Amazon

LG is also selling the LG 360 Cam, LG 360 VR, LG Cam Plus and the LG TONE Platinum directly from the company website.

See at LG.com

Folks in the U.S. can also buy the LG 360 Cam, LG 360 VR and LG Cam Plus directly from ShopAndroid.

Should you buy a module?

The LG G5 is already an excellent phone right out of the box with its 5.3 inch Quad HD display, lightweight body, and versatile camera. If you have specific areas you want to improve your G5 in, then adding a module might be advantageous. Overall, modules for the G5 are a nice-to-have but not a need-to-have.

Galaxy S7 Wireless Charging Battery Pack

Samsung Wireless Charging Battery Case

If you frequently find that your GS7 runs out of juice too early in the day, you'll benefit from this battery case from Samsung.

While it does add some bulk to the phone, it doesn't add as much as other battery cases thanks to Qi wireless charging — all of the phones ports and jacks remain unobstructed.

The case will get your phone up to about 50% charge in 2 hours, which isn't as fast as plugging it into an outlet but you still have the ability to use the phone just as you would normally while it's charging up this way.

Samsung Fast Charge Battery Pack

Samsung Fast Charge Battery Pack

With its 5700mAh capacity, this battery pack is ideal for charging your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge quickly on the go.

It comes in gold and silver and is capable of charging your phone to 50% in half an hour — that's pretty fast.

And because it has a standard USB port on it, you can connect any length of cable you want, as well as charge any other phone — not just a Galaxy S7.

Galaxy S7 edge LED View Cover

Samsung LED View Cover

Are you looking for a cool case for your Galaxy S7 edge? Then look no further than this neat case from Samsung.

You don't have to flip open the cover in order to check your phone's status. LED lights on the cover give you information about missed calls, incoming calls, and even the music that's currently playing on your device. Furthermore, you can see text notifications and find out the status of your battery, too.

Another useful feature of this case is that inside the cover is a pocket where you can store up to three credit cards and some cash.

Samsung Fast Charging Qi Stand

Samsung Qi Wireless Charging Stand

Over time, micro-USB cables can wear out from consistent use. Give them a rest by wirelessly charging your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge on a wireless charging stand.

With this stand, charging your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge is as simple as placing it on the stand. That's it. No more fumbling around trying to connect your charger to your phone in the middle of the night. No more messing around with wires (except the one supplying power to the charging stand, of course). Neat, huh?

Now the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge can use any wireless charger, but Samsung's Qi charging stand offers even faster charging speeds. This Fast Charge wireless charger will fill up the phone about 40% faster than a standard wireless charger — that's a big deal.

UAG ICE S7 Edge Case

UAG case

If you want a case that can take a beating while maintaining the GS7 edge's sleek profile, UAG's composite ICE case is a great choice.

As its name implies, this case is very light, but extremely durable. It features an armored shell combined with a soft internal sleeve to protect your expensive phone from impacts. In addition to this, the case is quite grippy, which is helpful given the fact that the S7 edge's curves make it prone to slipping out of your hands.

For even more recommendations on great cases, check out our best clear cases article over here.

Best cases for the Nextbit Robin

15
Best cases for the Nextbit Robin so far

If it's colored like a robin's egg, you should probably protect it like one.

The Nextbit Robin isn't flashy in the same way a metal or glass phone is, but it is pretty to look at with its square edges, unique colors and porportions and rather thin design. That being said, you drop that sucker on its corner and it's bye bye birdie.

We've rounded up the best cases that you can buy today to keep your Robin safe and sound, so you can keep Tweeting.

Philips finally has an amazing app for its Hue bulbs

14

A long time coming, but so worth the wait.

Early adopters of the Philips Hue bulbs are used to messing around with third-party apps by now. Philips opening up its APIs at an early stage was a smart move, and the number of incredible apps to have come from that are well worth talking about. At the same time, one of the big reasons many users turned to third-party apps in the first place was due largely to how confusing and downright featureless the Philips Hue app was.

Recently Philips released Hue Gen 2, a replacement to the original Hue app. We've been using it for a few days now, and it is without a doubt the most complete app you can have for your smart bulbs today.
