The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a powerful phone with all of the latest technology, including waterproofing and rapid USB 3.0 charging and syncing. In order to take full advantage of USB 3.0, you’ll need a proper USB 3.0 dock. That’s why we’re introducing the USB 3.0 Desktop Charging Cradle.
The Desktop Charging Cradle provides rapid USB 3.0 charging and syncing for your phone, with the new thicker USB 3.0 connector providing a more stable base than your typical USB 2.0 dock.
There’s also space for the S5′s USB port flap, which is part of the phone’s waterproofing and can make the phone not fit in many older docks. The Cradle is also case-compatible, meaning you can keep your S5 case on your phone when placing it in the dock.
The Desktop Charging Cradle is a solid option for the Galaxy S5, with a convenient form factor, fast USB 3.0 and a low price. Our expert videographers have put together a video for the Galaxy S5 USB 3.0 Desktop Charging Cradle, which is embedded below.
If you’re interested in the Desktop Charging Cradle, you might also want to have a look at the Dual Charging Cradle. This is an almost identical dock, but also includes a second slot for your spare battery. It’s a brilliant piece of kit to get both phone and spare battery charged before you head out. If you haven’t picked up a spare battery yet, you can find a range of options on our Galaxy S5 batteries page.
The HTC One M8′s Dot View Case is one of the most stylish cases I’ve seen for some time, with a unique dot matrix effect that uses the light of the screen pouring through a grid to show the time and notifications. This One M8 case has attracted a lot of attention from the press and consumers alike, so we thought we’d show you a little more.
James Woodcock from the Products team at Mobile Fun has produced a hands-on video of the case:
The video shows how the case shows notifications, allows you to answer or reject calls, and even place calls of your own using the voice dialler. You can see all of these functions shown below too – including incoming calls, the time and weather, battery alerts, alarms and timers.

The ROCK Elegant Side Flip Case is one of the finest available for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, so we went ahead and made a video about it. In the video, embedded below, you’ll see the case’s fit and features demonstrated on a dummy Galaxy S5 (as the phone is still about two weeks from release).
You’ll be able to see how the Elegant Side Flip adds minimal bulk to the phone, while protecting it from scratches and minor knocks. The sleep/wake functionality is explained, as well as the window in the front of the case which will allow you to answer incoming calls, check the time and see notifications – among many other functions. Finally, you can see in this case how the transparent back and opaque flip cover match the phone perfectly, particularly when you twin a phone with a case in the same colour.
The ROCK Elegant Side Flip Case is in stock now, and is available in five glorious colours – black, blue, champagne gold, lemon yellow and red. For more information, you can visit the ROCK Elegant Side Flip product page; you can also see our full range of Samsung Galaxy S5 cases on our site. Both links follow below:
Thanks for checking out the article and be sure to let us know what you think of the case! You can also reach us on Twitter @mobilefun or on Facebook at Love Your Mobile. Thanks again and have a good one!
We’ve reached a milestone here at Mobile Fun – we now have more Galaxy S III cases than iPhone 4 cases! To celebrate, I’ve put together a video showing off seven of the best recent Galaxy S3 covers. You can watch it below, or read on for the text version!
This slim case has a padded design and veggie leather construction. The case includes a magnetic closure for peace of mind and an interior pocket for easy storage of your credit cards. The case also comes in black if you’d prefer a more traditional look. A good functional and professional case.
This case is unique for having two windows cut into the folio flip cover. These expose the Caller ID and swipe-to-answer areas of the screen, allowing you to react instantly to incoming calls without having to flip the cover over to see who’s calling. Also includes a plastic grip that will ensure that the phone stays put. Again, a good option for professionals with a need for speed.
This case goes in the opposite direction, offering a sleek and stylish design. The back of the case features Swarovski Elements for that extra bit of glitz and glamour. The White Diamonds case is a brilliant choice if you’re looking for a good combination of sleekness, protection and style.
This cheerful case includes an Andy the Android logo on the rear, making it perfect for any Android fans. The green case adds a splash of colour to your S3 and looks great with all versions – black, blue or white. The case is also available in a more subtle clear option. The Cruzerlite Androidified is protective too, with the flexibility of a silicone case and the durability of a tough case.
This brightly covered flip case is officially made by Samsung and replaces the rear cover of your phone. That ensures that you’ve got the minimum of added bulk and a great deal of protection. As well as ensuring protection of the screen when the S3 isn’t in use, the case’s rear cover is more durable and less flexible than the stock option. Available in the standard Pebble Blue and Marble White options, as well as cooler colours like light blue, pink and orange.
This award-winning, Japanese-designed and built case is made from aircraft grade aluminium on a 5 axis CNC mill for the ultimate in precision and protection. The case is screwed on to ensure a tight fit with no weak points and feels totally solid in the hand. The bumper adds a bit of grip to the phone, too. It’s easy to why a similar design for the S II got an internationally recognised Red Dot design award.
This cleverly constructed case was 3D printed, allowing for a complex and artsy design unlike anything else on the market today. The Macedonia is a double layered case for increased resistance to scratches and fall damage, and feels very solid. The Macedonia also sports an open design for increased airflow. This is a totally unique case and for that I’ll give it the top spot.
So there you have it – seven Galaxy S III cases, representing the cream of the crop as of August 21st. If you have any questions feel free to let me know. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
Since Apple launched their original iPod back in October 2001, the range has grown and evolved. Although iPod’s look fairly similar, each one is individual, and has its own range of accessories. Here you can determine which iPod you have, and find out what accessories are available for it.
What does the “G” mean? When Apple launched the early iPod’s, they weren’t given names like they are today. The original iPod was replaced by a newer model also called iPod. As the newer model had several advanced features over its predecessor, it was dubbed the new generation of iPod, this over time change to 2nd Generation, which in turn got shortened to 2G.
The number preceding the “G” just determines where that particular model sits in the range of iPods. Even now with the Nano iPod, we are seeing 2nd and 3rd Generation models. The original style of iPod is now called the iPod Classic, and no doubt as time goes on, more generations will follow. The only exception to this is the iPhone 3G, where the 3G refers to the technology within the phone, and not the generation of iPhone.
