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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Armour Charge Cable – Up close and personal

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. …

Olixar X-Duo Carbon iPhone 7 Plus case Review

Every one of us at Coolsmartphone love our gadgets, but we all also have the same issues and problems with putting it in a case. My nice shiny new iPhone 7 Plus has been crying out for a new case to make sure it doesn’t hurtle towards the …

Lumsing Pilot 4GS 12000mAh Portable Charger – Review

This is a big battery that you charge from your iPhone or iPad charger. It has two USB 3A output ports and it’s got a 12000mAh capacity. If I’m honest, that’s about all you need to know. Portable chargers aren’t something you can write about a great deal, …

X-Doria Defense 360 Protective iPhone 6 Case – Review

Let’s be honest, the trouble with protective cases is that they make your shiny iPhone look bloody ugly as flip. Your iPhone looks gorgeous without a case, but no-one will see that because it’s hidden behind a stack of rubber and plastic when you try and keep it …

Voices in your Head? – Sony Launches new Xperia Ear

Virtual Assistants are something that major phone vendors have been pushing for a while. Whether it may be Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana or the new Google Assistant on the new Pixel phones. Now Sony has gotten into the act with their new Xperia Ear. According to the Sony blurb, this …

August Retro EP634 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

I’m going to completely give away the whole upshot of this review in the first paragraph for you now. Sure, you can always skip along to the bottom of the most reviews, but I’m going to serve it up on a platter right here in paragraph one. OK. …

Aukey Wireless Review: Enough to get you going

Bluetooth headphones are now all of a sudden a big deal. The world has awoken and realised that they don’t have to plug their ear buds into a headphone jack to listen to their tunes. All because Apple decides to get rid of it?! Once the reserved for …

Mpow Thor Foldable Bluetooth Headphones – Review

If you’re after some “proper” over-ear headphones with noise cancelling tech, these could be on your shopping list. First though, perhaps the biggest plus point for me is the price – just £18.89 on Amazon as I type, which is really rather good. The headphones have the usual …

Aidrive 32GB i-Flash Drive – Review

Just recently we took a look at the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive. It’s effectively a USB stick for your iPhone and iPad that’ll also plug into your computer so that you can back stuff up. It was £39.99 for the 32GB version. This one is a lot cheaper, …
