FLIR Thermal Imaging on the Cat S62 Pro 4G

Caterpillar, the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, has an incredibly badass, rugged work phone with advanced thermal imaging: The Cat S62 Pro 4G. Although this device is considered a heavy duty smartphone, its design is rather sleek and modern when compared to previous models and other hard-wearing phones.


Sleek & small – not your typical “hardcore” smartphone!

This device has glove support, so you can use it even when you’re wearing thick work gloves, and an orange programmable button on the side. What does the orange textured button on the Cat S62 Pro 4G do? Whatever you want it to! That’s right. You can set the orange button to work as a flashlight, to use search and rescue, or open any app on your device– assign any task your heart desires to the customizable orange button! Furthermore, there’s a circular fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, so you can easily secure and unlock your device.

The sleek body of the Cat S62 Pro 4G is made of a tough, high grade aluminium and the back of the device has a non-slip rubberized TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) – it weighs 248 grams. This particular device has a 5.7” FHD+ display made of Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which is a damage and scratch resistant glass. It is also IP68 and IP69 certified – that means it can withstand dust, dirt, salt mist, vibration, pressure, and sand and can also be submerged underwater up to 1.5m and dropped from 1.8m. It’s even MIL-STD 810H certified as well, which means it has passed military standards for ruggedness. All in all, it’s a pretty badass phone that can survive even the harshest of circumstances. A Youtuber even put the Cat S62 Pro 4G in their washing machine in 40 degree water for 55 minutes and it survived the washing cycle! That being said, you can safely wash the Cat S62 Pro 4G with soap and water or clean it with alcohol or bleach wipes.

You might be wondering about the Cat S62 Pro 4G’s battery life. Would it last a full workday? Yes, it would AND even longer! Its 4000 mAh battery can last for up to two days of general use. Moreover, it has dual SIM slots and expandable memory, thanks to microSD. Its 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage is impressive – it’s as big as my Macbook’s storage! Powered by a Snapdragon 660 chip and Android 10 (with upgrade to Android 11), it runs quickly and efficiently, perfect for all of your work and life needs.

So what are the cameras like on the Cat S62 Pro 4G? Well, it has a 12MP rear camera that can shoot video at 4K and 1080p, an 8MP front camera, and the incredible FLIR thermal imaging camera. The FLIR thermal imaging camera is actually the highest quality thermal camera on the market – it’s a Lepton 3.5 professional grade camera that has 4x more thermal pixels, 30% more image sharpness, and 10% wider field of view than the prior version of the phone. The Cat S62 Pro 4G has the FLIR app for your thermal imaging needs, which tells you the exact temperature of objects within the camera frame. The app also has a box tool that allows you to place a box over a specific area in frame and can tell you the average temperature and minimum and maximum temperature within the box. Need to send a report with thermal imaging information? The app also exports a FLIR thermal image report in .pdf formal! In addition to taking photos and videos, the FLIR thermal imaging camera on the Cat S62 Pro 4G can also do Youtube Live streaming and record time-lapse content.

What is the cheapest Samsung 5G Smartphone?

What is the cheapest Samsung 5G Smartphone?

What is the cheapest Samsung 5G Smartphone? The Samsung Galaxy 5G A22.


5G is currently the newest mobile data network; it makes your smartphone experience fun, easy, and lightning fast! With 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the Samsung Galaxy 5G A22 has enough power and memory for your day to day needs, like streaming content, scrolling through social media, and gaming. Even though it’s not the priciest phone on the market, it packs a lot of heat into its 16.76 cm display.

Screen Shot 2022-01-09 at 9.46.46 PM

One of its most exciting features is the screen itself. The Samsung Galaxy 5G A22 has a 1080p 90Hz refresh rate screen, which is very high-end for a budget smartphone. Despite the screen not being AMOLED, the TFT display is breathtaking to use. The display shows sharp, crisp, and stunning imagery and its Real Smooth technology is easy on the eyes and snappy. This device can be used outside, in direct sunlight, and its flat screen design is extremely responsive, with no accidental responses to your touch.

Screen Shot 2022-01-09 at 9.49.23 PM

Another highlight is its Rear Triple Camera. The main camera is a 48 MP wide angle lens, the Ultra Wide lens is 5MP, and there’s also a 2MP Depth Camera. Its primary camera does a stunning job of taking everyday photos and can zoom up to 10x. Moreover, with Ultra Wide, you can explore wider angles, up to 115 degrees, adding extra perspective to everything you capture. With its Depth Camera, you can customise your background focus by adjusting your depth of field, and you can also create background blur in your image to highlight your subject. Lastly, we can’t forget about the Front Camera or “selfie camera”! Snap Instagram worthy selfies with the 8MP front camera with bokeh effect, which gives you more focus on yourself and less focus on the background.

Additional features include its fingerprint sensor, which makes it easy for you to secure and unlock your phone, and its 5,000 mAh battery. With 5,000 mAh, there’s no need to recharge all day long!

“Do you check your smartphone before you pee in the morning, or while you are peeing?” -Roger McNamee, The Social Dilemma, 2020

2022 is right around the corner, and I’d personally like to adopt some healthier phone habits before the new year. Admittedly, I’m quite addicted to my technology. In a modern world of constantly wanting things to be better, faster, & bigger, it’s easy to be buried in technology 24/7– for some, it’s simply part of life. From believing I need to respond immediately to everyone in my life to being obsessed with news updates, my iPhone 8 feels like an extension of my body; I literally think I’ve lost part of myself when I lose it. Thank goodness for the FindMy app!

However, we need to remember that our smartphones and all the apps on it are meant to be addicting – they literally cause the release of dopamine (the “pleasure” chemical). I personally don’t think it’s our fault that we’re glued to our devices. What we can do is set up systems in our lives to make our smartphones work for us, instead of the other way around. Smartphones are supposed to be a tool that makes our lives easier, not something that sucks our life force and happiness away!

At Unlocked-Mobiles, we care about your mental health in addition to wanting to help you save an extra buck. :) Here are some tips for a better relationship with your smartphone in 2022.

  1. Don’t check your email constantly – schedule specific times of day to check it and don’t check it outside of work hours.

Let’s be real – email obsession & compulsive email checking is a real problem.

Marketing emails, work emails, personal emails, delivery emails, updates, updates, updates… they pile up fast in the ol’ inbox!

To mitigate “email addiction”, schedule a couple of specific times a day (preferably less than 5 times) to check your email.

Furthermore, if you haven’t already, be sure to organise your email to prioritise what’s important and sort out the trash. You’ll get to what’s crucial faster and get distracted less.

  1. Turn off notifications, except on your most important apps

Not all notifications were made equally! Do I care about a notification from Jiobit that tells me my cat has wandered back home? Of course.

Is a Microsoft Teams message from my boss or coworker something I should reply to in a timely manner? 100%.

Do I care about my “Last Chance to Play Starbucks for Life”? I honestly DGAF.

But all of these notifications pop up on my phone, and are always distractions from the task at hand I’m working on.

By turning off notifications, you’ll clear out a lot of the white noise from your life and create a more streamlined, productive smartphone experience.

  1. Keep your phone out of bedtime

Using your smartphone right before bed can have some pretty damaging effects on your brain. Smartphones emit a blue light that communicates to your brain that it’s time to be alert. Therefore, smartphone usage around bedtime is actually keeping you up longer at night and messing with your sleep schedule! Unfortunately, the long term downsides of constantly losing sleep are awful – insomnia, depression, etc.

You can solve this whole issue by committing to keeping your smartphone out of your bedtime – or even your bedroom. Charging your device outside of your bedroom is one healthy solution. Another one would be to schedule a “phone off” time around an hour before you’re scheduled to go to bed. Furthermore, most smartphones have a night shift mode, where you can reduce blue light if you must use your phone before bed. However, the phone out of the bedroom before bedtime strategy is the best option, in my opinion.

  1. Set time limits on Social Media

Social media was meant to be addicting! If you haven’t seen The Social Dilemma already, I highly recommend it. It delves into how harmful social media is for humans and how it’s used to manipulate and influence people.

I’m not saying you should cut out social media completely. But it’s definitely better in moderation. Apps like Instagram and Facebook have a setting you can turn on where you can set a daily time limit for social media. Once that limit is reached, it will send you a reminder that you’re at your limit and that it’s time to sign off. If a friendly notification isn’t enough to stop you, there are social media blocker apps, like Freedom, that can block you out of your social media, based on the schedule you set.

  1. Sit in your bad feelings, instead of using your phone as a distraction from them.

It’s so easy to use social media as a distraction from bad feelings. It feels good to numb the pain, and let your mind float into a world of funny memes and your ex’s Cabo photos; it feels good to avoid the pain. For some people, it has become a habitual self soothing activity.

Ultimately, social media is a horrible way to cope with negative emotions and is pretty bad for your mental health, for the most part. You’re pushing the emotions away and distracting yourself, instead of fully processing the feelings and using healthy coping strategies.

Personally, as someone who has anxiety and has been prescribed anxiety medications, I’ve noticed that using my phone & social media when I’m feeling down is worse for my mental health. I tend to compare myself to others while scrolling through endless posts and wishing my life was like everyone else’s highlight reels. When my therapist recommended healthy coping strategies for when I’m feeling down, I felt a world of difference. I created a list of activities I enjoy or that would help me during gloomy times, and I always felt much better after completing the activity versus how I felt using my phone as my default coping mechanism.

Here are my personal “healthy” coping mechanisms (feel free to create your own!):

  1. Journaling until all my “brain vomit” is out.

  2. Meditation

  3. Yoga

  4. Running or walking around my neighbourhood

  5. Petting or playing with my cat

  6. Taking a long, hot shower

  7. Drawing out how I’m feeling

There are also apps, like Calm or Headspace, that can help you if you’re feeling less than perfect. However, be sure to turn off notifications or block social media when you’re using them, so you don’t get distracted from your self care practice!

If you’re looking for something fun and active to release your feelings, there’s also an app called ActivitiesApp, where you can find entertaining physical activities near you.

Best wishes on your 2022 journey! I hope you will find healthier practices this year. :)

What is Dolby Atmos on Samsung Galaxy smartphones?

What is Dolby Atmos on Samsung Galaxy smartphones?


You might have seen signs advertising Dolby Atmos everywhere as it’s being marketed all over the place. You may think… what the heck is Dolby Atmos? Does it even make that much of a difference?

It does.

Dolby Atmos is an impressive new technology that brings movie theatre level surround-sound into your daily life – it gives you a better, smoother listening experience when you enjoy your music and other digital content. In fact, Dolby describes Atmos as, “the most significant development in audio since surround sound.”

Here’s where it gets a little interesting – Atmos creates 3D surround-sound, also known as spatial sound, by adding variable height for sounds. You might be wondering… what is 3D surround sound? Well, it’s similar to how sound works in real life. Sound naturally comes from all directions. Therefore, 3D surround-sound comes from above, below, and around! For instance, when a plane flies above your home, you hear that it’s above you. The same goes for when your annoying downstairs neighbour blasts music at 6AM – you can tell that the sound is coming from directly below you. Basically, Dolby Atmos recreates real life and delivers it straight through your headphones or speakers.

Atmos can be found on Samsung Galaxy S20 Series phones as well as many other newer Samsung devices. On your Samsung device, can enjoy Atmos with earphones,  bluetooth headsets, or bluetooth speakers. Furthermore, there are four different settings for Dolby Atmos on a Samsung phone: Auto, Movie, Music, and Voice. Auto adjusts to whatever you’re listening to, Movie is ideal for films, Music makes music sound richer and more balanced, and Voice helps make voices louder and clearer. There’s also an Equaliser setting where you can adjust the decibels based on the sound you’re listening to (there are Classic, Pop, Normal Jazz, Rock, and Custom settings). Atmos on the Samsung Galaxy even has a setting for gaming (“Dolby atmos for gaming” setting) that provides you with the best audio experience when you play games on your Samsung Galaxy phone. It creates all sorts of audio magic by mixing your audio in real time, based on your Atmos settings.

What will you listen to with Dolby Atmos?

Experience Dolby Atmos.

Tablets are easier to use than a smartphone because of the bigger screen making it easier to view websites and watch videos.

However, there are some reasons a tablet may not be for you. If you need access to an HDMI port or USB ports to connect to a projector, non-wireless printer, or hard drive, then a computer may be better suited for you.

How to Take a Picture of the Moon with a Smartphone

How to Take a Picture of the Moon with a Smartphone

iPhone 12 Pro


If you’ve ever tried to take a picture of the night sky with your smartphone, it’s pretty clear that the moon never looks as good in photos as it doesn’t in person. However with the increase of innovation in the tech industry, handset cameras are becoming more high quality. This means you don’t need to break the bank to get a high definition photograph. Whether you are on a romantic night out or hanging with friends at a beach bonfire, here are some tips to help you improve your photography and best capture your memories.


Night Sky Photography Tips:

  1. Clean your lens. Thumbprints can obstruct a good image so give your lens a wipe with a lint-free cloth before heading out.
  2. Steady your hand or use a tripod to ensure a clear image.
  3. Plan your timing. The moon is most visible as it is rising so try your luck at the beginning of the night.
  4. Pinch and zoom to frame and then make sure your flash is off.
  5. Want even more control over your quality? Download a specialized camera app. This will allow you to manually adjust things like ISO and shutter speed.
  6. Check if your phone has advanced photography features. Some handsets have a Night Mode in their camera settings that elevate camera performance.

Google’s Next Smartphone Will Be Powered By a Custom Chip

Google’s Next Smartphone Will Be Powered By a Custom Chip



Google is joining the tech industry’s new trend of developing their own processors, alongside the ranks of tech giants Apple and Samsung. However, this chip stands out from the pack. But what makes the Google chip different?


The Need For Custom Chips 

It seems like extra work to design both the software and the hardware of a new flagship smartphone. So why do the tech giants find it necessary to develop their own chips for their phones, laptops, and other gadgets.? It comes down to the fact that advancements in software development has simply outpaced advancements in commonly used hardware systems. According to Rick Osterloh, Google’s hardware chief, the company has hit the ceiling of what it can build with other companies’ chips. Osterloh continued to say that the previous hardware wasn’t capable of running sophisticated AI models. It comes down to hardware capability. If you are innovating the future of tech, you can’t play by the rules and regulations of the past.


Google’s Announcement
In the beginning of August 2021, Google announced that its next flagship phones (the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro) will be powered by a custom-built processor called Tensor. The Pixel 6 series is set to be released in the fall. The Tensor chip has taken four years to build with the best artificial intelligence and machine learning experts. Google calls the chip Tensor Processing Unit, or TPU, in reference to the company’s open source machine learning platform TensorFlow. The TPUs will be application-specific chips. They are designed to be machine-learning and compatible with the AI servers that live inside giant data centers. Up until now, Pixel phones have been powered by Qualcomm processors, the most popular processor within non-Apple smartphones. This new silicon Tensor chip will have a similar architecture so customers won’t lose app compatibility.

What’s next in the future of custom hardware in the mobile industry? We’ll have to wait until the fall to see the impact of the new Tensor chip in the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro.
