I have noticed phones with a handset (like the one in the image) have a little cover that resembles something like a cold camera shoe under the bottom of the handset’s top speaker holder. Is there a use for it? It has a line bump in the middle, but it doesn’t go all the way from both sides, it leaves a gap. I have also seem some of them have extra space on the top of the cover, and some don’t.

    English is not my first language and I don’t understand what camera shoe mean. But I think I know what you’re asking for. That phones can be mounted on a wall and what you’re asking for is there so the handset doesn’t fall off.

      It’s ok. English is my first language and I don’t understand what OP means by “cold camera shoe.”

      Native English speaker here, I don’t have a clue what a “cold camera shoe” means either…

      This is the camera shoe for a Sony DSLR

      Edit: note that this is a “hot” shoe because it has contacts that can power accessories. A cold shoe is just a mount. You can use to to attach a flash or a microphone for example
