aLLreLi F5 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s been a reoccurring theme whenever we review Bluetooth headphones. There’s definitely two types of headphones that I’ve found over the years. The first type will last for ages and they’re usually in-ear, but the sound quality just isn’t that brilliant. …

Bozlun B15P Fitness Tracker – Review

  Well doesn’t this look familiar? Indeed it should. This looks a lot like the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 we reviewed last year. Remember that? Here it is.. Indeed, this Bozlun B15P Fitness Tracker could probably fit in the same charging connector. It’s a similar size and has …

Poweradd USB Rechargeable LED Bike Lights – Review

Yes, bike lights. Welcome to the never-ending list of stuff that we’re reviewing here on Coolsmartphone. I’m hoping that we’ll have some sports cars in next. These are LED lights. Back when I was a kid I’d have a huge battery in each of my bike lights and …

5-Port USB charging station – Review

There are some products, much like a well known paint manufacturer, that simply do ‘what it says on the tin’.  This charging station is one such device.  It has no bells or whistles, no flashing lights or additional bumpf, it simply charges multiple devices! It comes in a …

Aukey SK-M12 Wireless Speaker – Review

Christmas might be a long distant memory already but there’s still time to treat yourself to some shiny new tech products! This is the second Aukey wireless speaker I’ve reviewed.  Unlike the first model, which I rather liked, this speaker has a more rugged look.  Like most Aukey products …

Huawei Mate 9 to get Alexa. Let’s test it.

Over the last few days I’ve been faffing about with the voice-controlled Amazon Echo Dot. It’s got an invisible lady inside called “Alexa” which will do your bidding. The device itself is a magical disc-shaped unit which will wake up and then answer your questions. It’ll also play …

Spy Lantern Surveillance Camera – Review

Having a security camera on your house can be a good and bad thing. Sure, you can keep an eye on things, but it’s also a sign that you want to keep something protected, and thieves might target your house because it’s got cameras hanging off it. So …

ProBox 2 Air Android TV Box – Review

Some time ago I decided to cancel my current satellite TV subscription. To be honest I thought the monthly fee was extortionate and decided to go along the “cable cutters route”. I found that I could get nearly all, if not all of the content I wished to …

V88 Plus TV Box – Review

Back in the “old days” we used to have photos on film. We then sent them off to get processed and we’d get them back on nice paper and we’d put them into albums. Now, we have smartphones and we have our photos stored either in a “cloud” …

Rophie USB-C to USB-A Adaptor

If you want to live in an Apple world now you have to embrace the dongle life, there is just no avoiding it. Ridding the iPhone 7 of a headphone jack is either seen as user hostile or a move that took courage. Unfortunately the new MacBook Pro …

EMTEC GEM Box – Review

Let’s break this down shall we? Imagine taking a fairly powerful Android phone, removing the screen and replacing the navigation system with an Xbox-style controller, then outputting the video to your TV. That’s basically what you have here. Inside is a quad core CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB of …

Ghostek Cloak 2 Protective 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 has been crying out for a new case to make sure it doesn’t hurtle towards the floor …

OneAdaptr FlipDuo & FlipPower Review

Traveling with bulky power adaptors and chargers is a complete nightmare. Each company wants to use it’s own connection, Micro USB, Mini USB, Lighting Adaptor etc etc. The only thing that seems to follow any form is the fact they all require a USB plug. In the UK …

Festive Feature – LOPOO Christmas Decoration Kit

About 14 years ago I started reviewing phones. Now I’m reviewing Christmas tree decorations and, if I’m honest, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. Either way, it’s the time to get festive. If you’ve just been up to the loft and grabbed your decorations …

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 …
