When you get around by Google Maps, you can’t just leave your phone in your lap or on the dash. It’ll fall and then you get screwed and make a wrong turn and get lost.
What you need is some way to hold your phone onto something. You can use a suction cup, but those things just suck. I mean that as in they work though. They use suction…
If that isn’t your thing, one of these plugs onto your air vent right by the dash or the steering wheel and you can see your directions like that.
Pretty convenient I guess. I just use a bike.
Have you ever run your phone over with a scooter? I have. I had this case on it. My phone is fine.
If that doesn’t convince you, I have no idea what will. This case is a tank though. I have played minutes of Candy Crush on it, and days of Hearthstone. I have dropped my phone multiple times and used the stand…. And it is still alive
After all this time, this is my favorite case I have reviewed.
Running Belts Vs Armbands. A battle about as old as someone born last year. As I started reviewing both, I was given a chance to see the benefits of both. I see tons of armbands around. Most everyone has them now, and that is probably because it is the popular thing.
The armbands are nice. If you have wired headphones, you can wire the headphones up to your ears nicely. The easy way to run with them is to wrap the cord through, and then you can use your app while you run and switch songs and stuff.
Running belts are nice and easy if you have bluetooth or are good at setting up an app and then are good to run. You shove the phone in it, and then you are all good to run. If you run with an app and are good to know your route and then go, you should use the belt.
Basically it comes down to how you use your phone when you run. If you use an app while you run, an armband is nicer because it is more convenient. If you have wired headphones, then you would also be better off with an armband.
If you run with wireless headphones, you should probably settle on a belt. I think the belt is much better since you don’t really notice it and it isn’t in the way. I do always run with Bluetooth headphones though since I own so many, so that may bias me I guess? Either way, it’s up to everyone to figure out what they like best.
VR is still not a huge thing. But it is getting there. Of course there are the Samsung Gear things. But those are a large expense and quite frankly nothing VR is that great that you should go buy something expensive to try out a novelty.
Google cardboard is basically that. A piece of cardboard you fold over and attach a rubber band and you have a VR viewer. It isn’t comfortable or feature rich, but the word cardboard is in the name so what did you expect.
Folding is easy, and apps are decently easy to use, but it is still a novelty.
Before I moved on to the forgotten wasteland that is USB-C, I loved this charging cable. My original Samsung broke and this dude popped up. It was metal, and with springs on it so I had zero thoughts that it would ever break. I was not wrong.
Though a bit shorter in terms of cables these days, this thing will not bend and become brittle like other cables. I loved it even when it shocked me because it was metal and did that from time to time.
They just don’t make USB-C cables like that… And seriously, why couldn’t they be trendy and call it USC?
