Car and Motorcycle Mounts for an LG V60 ThinQ 5G Phone

LG V60 MountThe LG V60 is the current flagship for LG.  The specs rival most of the other top of the line phones.  Like most LG models of the past, the big brands like Samsung and Apple will outsell it, and when it comes to residual value in 2 years, it will be worth a lot less.  Because of the lack of popularity, the secondary market is weak when it comes to LG.

We previously reviewed mounts for the LG V30.  This is three generations later.  Bigger, better, faster and the fingerprint sensor was moved to the front of the phone.

This is a large phone.  Checking in with a large 6.8 inch diagonal screen size, the physical dimensions are 6.67 x 3.06 x 0.35 inches.  Adding a thick case to this phone will likely have the width approaching 3.5 inches and that’s fairly wide for a phone.  This means some universal mounts may not fit, especially those that use a smaller 3 inch cradle size.

Speaking of cases, get one.  This photo was taken minutes before the phone slipped off a table that was 18 inches off the ground.  Luckily, only the back cracked so a case will surround it and nobody will be able to tell but I feel stupid knowing far better.  I just wanted to get this photo and the case was being shipped albeit a day too late.  So annoyed.

Anyway, back to the phone mount discussion.

The mount being used in the photo that accompanies the LG V60 is the Square Jellyfish Jelly-Grip Car Air Vent Mount.  The Square Jellyfish Jelly-Grip will hold the LG V60 with or without a case.  It has a ball and socket so the cradle swivels into any orientation.  This mount will work on flat vent slats that are 3/8 to 1 inch deep.  The included cradle opens to 3 5/8 inches which gives us plenty of room even if your phone has a thick case.

Another useful and popular option for an LG V60 is the Arkon Ultra Slim Grip Suction Mount which has an expandable cradle that opens to almost 7 inches.  Unlike the vent mount just discussed, this one uses a cradle that holds the phone from the top and bottom.  The legs can separate to allow connection of the USB-C cable.

The mount comes with an adhesive dash plate so that you can attach to the mount to your dash as well as your windshield.  The phone can rotate 360 degrees into portrait or landscape using this mount.  This mount comes with a 2-year warranty.

Another place to mount an LG V60 is the CD Player.  Somewhat obsolete in terms of use, the CD player slot can make a handy mount point for the LG V30.  Consider the Mpow CD Player SmartPhone Car Mount.  Be sure to follow the installation instructions that accompany this mount to ensure a secure proper fitting.  The included cradle is expandable to fit your phone with or without a case or skin.  Your phone can swivel 360 degrees in this mount.  The cradle opens to 3.54 inches so no problem for this phone.

Let’s check out a mount for a motorcycle.

Combine the Techmount Universal Motorcycle Handlebar Mount Kit with the Techmount 4-Techgripper.  The mount is constructed of metal and fits handlebar diameters from 7/8 to 1.25 inches so it covers the majority of motorcycle models that can accommodate a handlebar mount.  The cradle opens to four inches.  An included small hex wrench is provided for installation.  Very simple installation.  We always recommend tethering your device when using on a motorcycle for added security.  Safety is of utmost important on a motorcycle so be sure this mount is solidly installed and keep your focus on the road.
