1byone Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Review

When you’re young and full of beans you really enjoy writing about tech. Mobile phones, gadgets, gizmos – it lights your fire. Then, after several years of looking a Bluetooth speakers, you start to wane a little. You get sent dozens and dozens of the things. Some

Tech Armor Privacy Screen Protector – Review

First, a big hello to Lawrence Daniels. He’s the PR guy for Tech Armor. Now, apart from their company name obviously being incorrect (it should, of course, be Tech Armour), they’re pretty good as a company. I partially have to say that because they sent this particular

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge – Case reviews

Choosing your next smartphone is a big decision. With different storage options, colours and sizes now available it can be no easy choice to make. However, protecting your phone can be just as important, and this gets even more complicated with the hundreds of options available to

Spy Watch – Review

Check me out ladies. I got me a spy watch. I’m just like James Bond, but with an added belly and some questionable reasons for actually owning one. This, it has to be said, does exactly what it says on the tin. There’s two batteries inside –

Annke SP3 960P HD Wireless IP Camera – Review

We’ve head quite a few security cameras cropping up here at Coolsmartphone. This one is from Annke and you can control and move it from anywhere via your smartphone. First up, the plus points. Although you’ll spot an ethernet port on this, it connects very easily via

Syllable D700 Bluetooth Sports Headphones – Review

We recently took a look at the Syllable A6 Bluetooth headphones and now we’ve got the sportier D700 ones. They’re available on Amazon USA for $19.99 and here in the UK for £13.99. Initial impressions are very good. I tried these on at the gym and they

aLLreLi KA150 Wireless Keyboard – Review

This is just £12.99 on Amazon and, I have to say, I quite like this. It’s definitely my preference when compared to the gaming keyboard we looked at fairly recently. This is the aLLreLi KA150G Wireless Keyboard and it comes with 18 multimedia function keys too. Out

aLLreLi 8GB USB Voice Recorder – Review

If you want to carry around a device which is no bigger than your standard USB pen drive but want to record audio, listen up. You need this thing. The Allreli USB voice recorder arrives in a slim unassuming box and has a snug top to cover

Allreli K9500 Gaming Keyboard Review

So, this is how the conversation went on this one.. “Hello, Coolsmartphone HQ?” “Yes, this is Allreli. We make gadgets and things. Can we send you a gaming keyboard?” “Err.. well, we don’t really cover PC gaming ?” “It’s really good though, it has a really cool

Titan – The toughest charging cable in the world. Review.

Cables can get frayed and worn out pretty quickly when you use them regularly. It could be you, your kids or your dog doing the damage, and it usually means a broken plug or a torn cable. My wife is pretty skilled at wearing out the connection

CHOETECH USB Type C Charger – Review

Two weeks, I finally caved in and accepted that my Nexus 4 wasn’t just a little old and creaky; it was beginning to malfunction. I replaced it with another Nexus because there are few models I could point to and be impressed by their reliability… and naturally that

Samsung Gear VR Review

Every few years, it seems that certain trends become the “in” thing in the mobile and computing space. For the last few years, it was “wearables”, smartwatches etc. Starting last year, and really taking off this year is Virtual Reality. HTC announced their Vive last year, and

Syllable A6 Wireless Bluetooth Sports headphones – Review

Headphones you say? Without a cable that’ll get snagged in my coat / zip / neck? Yes, I’ll have a look at that thanks. These, unsurprisingly, are headphones with Bluetooth built in. Getting them paired up with your phone is the first step, but before we talk

Slicoo Wood / Bamboo case for Galaxy S7 – Overview

We got sent this “Nature Series” case by Slicoo. It’s just £9.99 from Amazon at the moment and we did let them know that we hadn’t actually got a Samsung Galaxy S7 to test it with, but they said not to worry. The full name for this

Garmin Dash Cam 35 Review

The purpose of dash cams is varied. Some would say that they’re an essential tool for reporting exactly what happened in those moments before a crash. Others would tell you that they’re a great tool for showing terrible driving on YouTube. Personally, from what I’ve seen on

ZUS – A car charger with a cool addition. Reviewed.

The people at nonda got in touch with us and wanted to send us a car charger. We said yes. Then, because it was a car charger, it kinda went into our review queue and I didn’t really look at the great additional feature this thing has.

Tronsmart Type-C Quick Charge 3.0 & Type-C Charger

More car chargers for you today, and this time it’s for those of you with a USB Type-C device. This puppy has a standard USB port with Quick Charge C3.0 AND a Type-C port to fit the latest smartphones including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Lumia 950,

Tronsmart USB Rapid Car Charger Review

We get sent some stuff here at Coolsmartphone. Lately it’s been cables and in-car chargers, so expect to see a lot of reviews featuring these. To be honest there’s not a great deal you can write about them. This is the Tronsmart USB Rapid Car Charger and

StarTech Bluetooth Audio Receiver with NFC – Review

Your phone is brilliant. Trouble is, the speakers on your phone are complete pap. Some of the Bluetooth ones you buy are a bit weedy too, so when you’ve got a chunky and expensive hi-fi system sitting in your house, you kinda want to use it. Whether
