Quad Lock Bike Mount Review: The Deliveroo Phone Holder

quadlock bike mount
When I'm looking for products to review, I get inspiration from some strange places. Sometimes, it's two odd places.

We recently got to play with the Tesla Model S and boy, oh boy, was it fun. To make the most of it, I got in touch with the guys behind the Insta360 Pro; a Google Streetview-quality 360-degree camera. I got some shots in the Model S and the Model X, but being honest I didn't feel it did...

Today Huawei launched the long-awaited P40 Series. I say long-awaited, but I could also say "much-discussed" and maybe even "most controversial" when talking about this phone launch. The Huawei P40 series is the first major consumer phone launch for Huawei since the American Google was forbidden from officially supporting the Chinese manufacturer. I've been test-driving last year's Huawei Mate 30...

Did you ever go to Knock when you were younger? It didn't do much for my spirituality, but I actually did do that pilgrimage. I'm not a big fan of religion, but there's one pilgrimage I'd love to do; Mobile World Congress. Mobile World Congress to smartphone fans is like Knock to the religious types. With the 2018 event...
