Review – Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge cases from 32nd Shop

I often find it hard to review cases – most people have their own preferences, whether they’re flip cases (either sideways or up/down), shell cases, rubber cases, no cases etc.  Most cases tend to do what you expect of them, and often the cheaper they are the poorer …

Solve iOS storage anxiety with an OLALA iDisk

Small storage options for phones have been around for so long they are almost ignored by the tech community. Apple especially has been guilty of making the entry level price point as cheap as possible just for a great ‘from’ price. Capacity restraints are a very real for …

Newton Mail App – Review

Remember all those years ago when you’ve got your first email account and you couldn’t wait to set it up with a stupid account name? Now, many years later, it’s quite embarrassing having to pass those details to any prospective employers, hospitals or friends.  So what do you …

Wireless power for your smartphone by Aircharge – Review

Keeping your devices charges whilst away from home is a continued nightmare. After dragging around a bulking power adapter, you struggle to find a power outlet. This is where a brand new Kickstarter campaign steps in. https://ksr-video.imgix.net/projects/2682888/video-723673-h264_high.mp4   Aircharge is looking to secure £20,000 with backers providing over …

As we race towards the bottom price point, there are some amazing handsets available for a more bank friendly price heres my review of the Nuu Mobile X4.

Archeer Solar Charger – Review

Doing a review of a solar charging system at this time of year isn’t perhaps my wisest decision, especially not here in the UK on a cold and wet November day. It’s going to be dark by 4PM, but I’ve got a solar charging device from Archeer. This …

Acer Iconia Tab10 – Review

It has been a few weeks now since the latest Acer tablet arrived on my desk at Coolsmartphone towers. In that time I have been using it as my main day-to-day device for media consumption. I have not really been using it for very much in the way of work …

Wileyfox Spark X – Review

There was a time, not too long ago, when phones costing £139.99 were best avoided. “Android landfill” they used to call them. Cheap devices with a questionable build quality, a dire camera and wonky screen resolutions. Here, for your money you’re getting a completely network-free device with an …

Get festive with a FLAVR Christmas Jumper – For your phone

Phone cases are something that are a fact of life. We don’t really want to hide the fantastic style and shape of our shiny expensive phone, but we have to. This FLAVR case adds a bit of a twist, and they’re really only useful for the next few …

Pebble 2 Smartwatch – Review

I was one of the Kickstarter backers for the original Pebble smartwatch back in 2012. I still actually own that too. Shortly after I purchased the Pebble Steel. However, when the colour Pebble Time watches appeared, I fell out of love with them. I thought the new colour ePaper interface was a …

Nomu S10 – Review

Here at Coolsmartphone we are approached by device manufacturers from all over the world. I must admit that it is the unheard-of devices from the far-east that intrigue me the most, so I jumped at the chance to review the unknown brand Nomu and their S10 device. ‘Who …

Speck Presidio Clear Case Review

Cases always cause me an issue. The manufacturers spend hundreds of hours designing the phone so it looks its best. They shave millimetres and dropping grammes to make it as sleek and pleasing to hold as possible. However, every handset seems to make a bid for freedom at …

Good news people! We got sent a brand new Tesla to road test. We’ll be bringing you a full 30 minute video of the resulting…. … oh wait no. We got another cable. Don’t worry though, this is a strong, industrial-grade cable and it’s called the Armour Charge. …
