Last week someone asked me about a magnetic smartphone mount and I have been using the WizGear Vent Mount. This is a magnetic smartphone mount you can mount on your car’s air conditioning vent. It comes with 2 adhesive plates that can be attached to back of any smartphone along with an extra non-adhesive plate that you can place inside your smartphone case. I prefer the non-adhesive method since I switch phones often.

Okay, guys so I have to admit that I wrote the whole script for the OnePlus Two two weeks back but since I got the Moto X Pure and a bunch of new phones came out, it got delayed plus my thoughts on this phone changed drastically due to lots more phones coming at near the same price as the OnePlus Two. When I first got the OnePlus Two few weeks back, it was undeniably the best smartphone you could buy under $400. Well, fast forward a few weeks and the smartphone world has changed a LOT.
4 years ago, Samsung launched the first big smartphone with its first Galaxy Note Android smartphone. At the time, no one knew that phablets like the Galaxy Note would become popular. In fact, most media outlets called it a ridiculously large phone that’s not going to fit in your pocket. Well, fast forward to 2015 and everyone is using a large phone these days. Even Apple introduced their iPhone 6 Plus to satisfy the people’s urge to use large smartphones. Phablets are like the SUVs of cars and if you want the best SUV, the Galaxy Note 5 is really the best you can buy right now.

For those of you who live in the U.S., did you know it’s illegal in over 50% of the States to have a suction cup phone mount on the windshield of your car? (See my article here for list of illegal States). Cops will probably not pull you over but if they wanted to find a reason, this could be one reason to pull you over. If you like to carry illegal stuff in your car (not that I recommend it), pay attention, I may save you from going to jail. Besides that, having a suction phone mount on your windshield does get in the way of your view.
