Power Support Claw review: If you've got a Stadia controller, you might as well

Power Support Claw review: If you've got a Stadia controller, you might as well

Google bills Stadia as "one place for all the ways we play" — meaning on TV, desktop, and mobile. But considering Stadia's games aren't controllable by touch, playing on a phone can get awkward. Enter the Claw: a made-for-Google phone cradle custom fit to the Stadia controller. It's not great, but outside of Stadia's inherent drawbacks, it does facilitate phone play, and for $15, you might as well pick one up.

Scosche's new arm mount lets you watch Netflix in the shower hands-free

Scosche seems to know what it's doing when it comes to making wirelessly-charging phone mounts that don't get in the way of your vehicle's climate control vents. In fact, at this very CES, the company extended the MagicMount's utility with new air freshener cartridges that integrate right into the base. Today, though, we come to a little something different: a suction-mounted telescoping arm.

Scosche jams an air freshener into its car mounts so it can sell subscriptions

Last year at CES 2019, Scosche announced the MagicMount Charge3, a car mount that hooks into your car's air vent to keep a phone locked steadily in place. Unlike similar products, the MagicMount was designed so neither the mount or the phone would obstruct airflow from the vents, plus it supported wireless charging for your phone. This may sound like the holy grail of car mounts, but this year Scosche added the one thing that was obviously missing: an air freshener.

[Update: Looking good for GS10 and GS10e, too] Magnetic phone mounts surprisingly play nice with Galaxy S10+ wireless charging

[Update: Looking good for GS10 and GS10e, too] Magnetic phone mounts surprisingly play nice with Galaxy S10+ wireless charging

On most phones that feature wireless charging, you typically need to give up that convenience when installing a magnetic plate for phone mounts — or place the mount in a location where it works poorly to keep it. In our testing, though, that isn't the case when it comes to the Galaxy S10+. The phone is able to work with a magnetic mount quite far up the back, with no loss in wireless charging functionality.

Scosche already announced a nifty wireless charging in-car mount, the MagicMount Charge3, at CES yesterday, but the new MagicGrip Charge is pretty interesting as well. This Qi-powered mount actually grabs your phone from you with motorized arms — something I've never seen on a car mount before.

Nokia 7.1 pre-orders from B&H come with a free photo/video kit worth $65

The Nokia 7.1 looks primed to bring some swagger back to the mid-range smartphone game, particularly in the US. Even still, the quality of the photos and videos captured with the device isn't likely to knock your socks off. But a steadier hand and some reliable lighting should help. To that end, if you pre-order a 7.1 from B&H, you'll also get a free photo/video kit worth $65, which is about 19% of the phone's $350 price tag.

Scosche's magicMOUNT Magnetic Mounts Are Now Available, Current Models Range From $14.99 To $24.99

With the number of options that are out there, our smartphones have gradually become more useful for in-car navigation than dedicated GPS units. Unfortunately, holding a phone in your hand isn't the safest (or most legal) driving habit, and mounting your device to the dashboard doesn't work as gracefully as many accessories out there claim. Yet Scosche might be on to something with its latest products, the magicMOUNT magnetic mounts.

Scosche is offering magicMOUNT in multiple formats, so users can mount devices to dashboards, windshields, tabletops, or walls. Each variation works the same. Users install a "MagicPlate" on the back of their phone or tablet, inside the battery cover, or within a case.
