Three colours of LG Nexus 5X coming

LGGoogleNexus5X-LGeM0Cb.c2.w150Looks like FindYogi have jumped the gun and listed 3 colours of the LG Nexus 5X alongside a spec break down ahead of the expected announcement on September 29th. According to  the site four colours will be available, Amazon India, Charcoal Black, Ice Blue and Quartz White. Several features are listed as Unconfirmed however they make for interesting reading. USB C and fast charging are onboard however worryingly there is only selection for 16gb or 32gb and it appears there is 2Gb or RAM. The Indian Rupee to British pound conversion for the 32gb works out around £240 whilst the 32gb is £270.

Spigen Stealth Universal Cradle Unboxing

vlcsnap-error001The name Spigen is fast becoming one of the favorites when it comes to mobile accessories. Ever reliable cases and peripherals that might cost a little more but the quality is easily impressive. There has been a bit of a wait for their Steatlh cradle and now it has arrived I am far from disappointed.

Combining quality with a simple approach is the way to most people hearts. The Stealth is essentially a clam shell that holds you phone in place, in landscape orientation. There are two notches to pitch your phone depending on the height of your dashboard and this is about all of the functionality. When the phone is not in the holder it folds down to be almost out of sight. No rubber suction cups, not long necks or arms pushing the device out from the windscreen and a significantly smaller footprint to see past, even when in use.

The styling of the Stealth is much like that of a Stealth bomber. The rubberised exterior has facets allowing for a more stylish look and appeal. The interior is a little more plain however there is a small groove behind the phone large enough to take a coin… for your trolley perhaps?

The cradle is attached to the dashboard by a large, super sticky pad on the underside. Packaged are two alcohol wipes, one for the first time you attach it to you dashboard, the second for an hour later when you decide to move it a little as it’s in the way.

The only problem I have encountered with the Stealth is the limitation to landscape. Invariably this will mean the buttons on the side of the phone are more likely to be pressed, therefore the phone has to sit at a point whereby the buttons are not being touched by either part of the Cradle clamp mechanism. No buttons on the sides of your phone? This is the one for you. Another small problem is the landscape orientation, this isn’t ideal for some. Quite a few phones on the market lack the ability to rotate their home screen. It really isn’t designed to take a device in portrait mode.

The Spigen Stealth is a great cradle for your car, simple in design and simple to use. You can purchase the Spigen Stealth Universal Cradle from Mobilefun for £24.99
