Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Sony Xperia XZ Premium Smartphone

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a nice entry in the arena of higher end smartphones for Android fans.  A little bump in the RAM to 4 GB versus the 3 GB on the standard Sony Xperia XZ makes this phone worth a look.  The extra 33% boost in RAM makes a big difference in performance. The features a respectable 5.46 inch 3840 x 2160 pixel diagonal display.  The main camera checks in with a semi insane 19 MP lens.  Measuring 6.14 x 3.03 x 0.31 inches, this is a larger phone that will need a mount that features a cradle … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Nissan Altima

This was an easy one.  The Nissan Altima can work with almost any mount.  This might be the easiest vehicle of them all to mount a smartphone or GPS.  A tablet is a little trickier due to the size of the car.  Not a lot that will not work in this car but there are a few locations that will work better than others. Our usual photo of the interior accompanies this article.  It’s a very conventional design.  Not a lot of unexpected curves or lips.  Even the seat bolt is exposed.  Normally, I go on to say which mounts won’t work. … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the LG G6 Smartphone

I’m beginning to think I should have shopped around some more for my latest Android smartphone.  The LG G6 is a big impressive phone that currently sells for about the same as my Samsung Galaxy S7 with better features and doesn’t have the annoying beveled edge. The LG G6 has a lot to talk about beyond the size (which is big).  The camera features dual rear 13 megapixel cameras that provide a 125 degree wide-angle view.  The 5.7 inch display has an 80% body to screen ratio and a 2880 x 1440 display.  An IP68 waterproof rating means you can get it wet and not have … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the LG V20 Smartphone

My what a big phone you have!  The LG V20 was recently introduced with some excellent features that rival the other major manufacturers Android 7 phones. It’s a big phone.  Sporting a large 5.7″ diagonal screen, this phone measures 6.29 x 3.07 x 0.30 inches (159.7 x 78.1 x 7.6 mm).  These are the key measurements for selecting your mount.  Mounts with custom cradles for a different phone are unlikely to fit the LG V20.  For those that have a universal mount, hopefully it opens wide enough to hold the LG V20 without a problem. Some universal mounts offer options to upgrade your … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Subaru Outback

In terms of the mounting difficulty scale, the Subaru Outback checks in with a 5 on a scale of one to ten.  Our traditional recommendations work well.  The mounts that are always a little tricky won’t work well.  So, all in all, not a lot of surprises. We always try to include a photo of the interior with vehicle specific articles and we have done so with the Subaru Outback.  It’s a fairly conventional design.  Unlike the curviest SUV on the planet being a Nissan Murano, this is standard stuff. The most popular location for a smartphone or GPS continues … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Huawei Mate 9

This is the first article on our site about a phone from Huawei and it’s a fairly impressive one at that.  The Huawei Mate 9 was introduced by the company in September 2016. Very impressive specs that rival (and surpass) some of the best out there.  An impressive 20 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera with 64GB of memory.  That’s impressive for the price. To get ready for the mount discussion, lets check the dimensions of the phone.  The Huawei Mate 9 sports a 5.9 inch diagonal display so it’s a bit larger than most smartphones.  The Huawei Mate … Read more
