OnePlus 3 Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The OnePlus 3 SmartPhone is the successor to the very successful OnePlus 2.  What’s different?  A lot.  A faster processor, 16MP camera, slightly larger in size and a new operating system.  This is normally sold as an unlocked phone which means this will work with multiple carriers. While the OnePlus 3 is a large phone featuring a diagonal screen at 5.5 inches, this phone is 6.01 x 2.94 x 0.29 inches (152.7 x 74.7 x 7.4 mm).  These are the measurements needed when selecting a mount.  I haven’t seen any OnePlus 3 custom cradles so we are going to discuss universal mounts.  The OnePlus … Read more…

LG G5 Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The LG G5 is the successor to the very successful LG G4.  What’s different?  A lot.  The LG G5 features an aluminum case and this makes the phone a lot more rugged than most other smartphones.  The power button is built into the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.  That’s a lot different from most other phones that typically put the fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone, not to mention the power isn’t normally integrated within this area.  The most unique feature of the phone is that the bottom has a removable panel which allows insertion of a … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the HTC One M9 Smartphone

The HTC One M9 is another excellent entry from HTC.  Released with Android 5.1, it will also support Marshmallow 6.0.  This is one of the few phones I have seen with the Corning Gorilla Glass-4 which means scratch-resistant glass and potentially no need for a screen protector. With a now common 5.0 inch diagonal screen this phone measures 5.69 x 2.74 x 0.38 inches (144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61 mm).  These are important measurements to keep in mind when selecting your mount.  I’m not aware of any custom mounts for the HTC One M9 so we are going to discuss universal mounts.  The HTC … Read more…

Industrial Heavy Duty Tablet Mounts

Tablets have made their way into industrial warehouse settings.  Broken tablets have also made their way into industrial warehouse settings.  It’s time for an article on heavy duty tablet mounts.  We are going to look at heavy duty tablet mounts with universal cradles.  This means they are going to fit mainstream tablets such as the Apple iPad, Apple iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy Tab with or without a case or skin. Many of today’s warehouse management application suites have a mobile option that runs on an Apple iPad.  I have even seen stand alone inventory apps.  Makes sense.  Tablets are … Read more…

How to Select the Right Otterbox Case

Thanks to my recent quest for the best case for my brand new Apple iPhone 6s Plus, I became a bit of an expert on the topic of protective cases.  I looked at a lot of different protective cases and at the end chose the Otterbox Defender for Apple iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus.  Getting there wasn’t too easy.  I tried numerous cases and researched what was probably several dozen cases from various manufacturers.  I have used Otterbox cases for many years and my research and experience enlightened me to the fact there are different models of Otterbox cases.  This … Read more…
