KitSound Reunion Speakers – A review of some great old school speakers

We like a good set of speakers here at CoolSmartphone, and personally I’ve been impressed with KitSound speakers in recent years. So I was chuffed when the Kitsound Reunion Speakers arrived on my desk. Recently I was fortunate enough to review the Kitsound Parallax speakers, and they are …

Etekcity Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver – Review

This little gadget is going to be ideal if you have a big hi-fi or speaker system which doesn’t have Bluetooth capability. Likewise, it’s going to be ideal if you’ve got a TV or another non-Bluetooth device and you want to push the output to a Bluetooth speaker. …

Even H1 Headphones – Review

Headphones, as you’ll have no doubt noticed if you go to an electrical retailer, can cost a truck load of cash. On a recent trip to Currys I spotted a pair for £449. That’s almost as much as most smartphones. Here, for £199.99 from Selfridges (yeah, a bit …

Paby Pet Tracker – Review

We’ve covered this already here at Coolsmartphone but now we’re lucky enough to borrow one to review. For $79.99, this is a pet activity monitor with in-built GPS, WiFi and a SIM card so that you can see where your pet is, live. Oh, and get this, it …

Energy Sistem Music Box 7 – Review

I tell you what you need on a Monday morning. What you need is a Bluetooth speaker review. Oh yes. Straight off, you should forget about those lightweight and small Bluetooth speakers that you see in stores. This badger weighs in at nearly 1.7 kg. That’s almost a …

Brainwavz B200 – Review

As recently as last week, we covered the launch of the Brainwavz B200 earbuds which retail at a whopping £156. Not long after that post, the review pair arrived at Coolsmartphone Towers for testing. First impressions? The looked the business. They arrive in a nice box, which included …

Fresh ‘n Rebel Rockbox Cube Fabriq Edition – Review

Available in three colours (concrete, peppermint or this indigo one), this is a mini Bluetooth speaker with a fabric finish. It’s a cube which is 5.9 cm wide, tall and long and kicks out 3 watts of power. It should keep your music blasting out (depending on how …

Bookee App Review: Tinder for Betting

When I was a lad we used to go and meet girls at the park or maybe at the local nightclub. Now, with powerful smartphones, you simply swipe your finger across the screen. In a way it can be a little disheartening to see everyone communicating via a …

Zecti Robot Tripod mini – Review

I don’t know about you but I love taking photos with my phone. Today we have phone cameras that are really rather excellent. They’re right up there with the compact cameras that we used to carry around a few years ago. There is, however, still the long-standing issue of …

Doro 6050 – Review

I find myself doing something that I’ve not done for a long, long time. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a flip phone. The last time I reviewed a flip phone might have been the Motorola MPx200. That was a smartphone and, given that it was launched 2003, a …

Samsung Galaxy S8 – Review

Samsung definitely needed to do something big with the S8 and the larger-screened S8+. They’ve not had the best time of it recently, and there’s been widespread coverage of the infamous exploding battery issue. The S8 needed to be good, and indeed, it is. The popularity of the …

HTC U11 – Photo special

HTC have dropped out of the limelight of late. Vodafone don’t seem to be ranging any of their handsets and Three are all out of stock of the HTC 10. Whilst playing with their U Play and U Ultra it occured to me that both handsets had pretty …

Kitsound Parallax Speakers – A Review – Versatile and Sweet

I like Kitsound products and I always have, I find that their bassy sound and value for money hits a sweet spot for me. Normally I tend to use their Bluetooth speakers or headphones, but as you may have read I’ve recently discovered eSports on the iPhone and …

Tech 21 Samsung Galaxy S8 cases – Review

Head to Tech21.com and you’ll find a range of cases for the iPhone plus LG, Sony, HTC and Motorola handsets. There’s lots of designs and types to choose from, but one thing in common you’ll find is the fact that they’re properly drop tested. Today we’re looking at …

iClever BTH20 Bluetooth Headphones Review

I’ve been sent through the latest sports designed headphones from iClever, the BTH20 in ear headphones. Good Points: Incredibly light. Very comfortable. Excellent value for money. Good sound quality. Well designed. Water resistant. Bad Points: Controls on the right side. Wire routed to the front rather than the …

Sunnycam Xtreme 1080p HD Video Glasses – Review

You have to be a little careful when describing this particular product. They are a pair of sunglasses with a hidden camera at the front. It sounds a little dodgy if you put it that way. The camera is noticeable, however many won’t spotted on a day-to-day basis. …

DROCON Blue Bugs 3 Drone – Review

Yes, I’m being sent drones to review now. What I know about drones can be written on the back of a stamp. I’ve had a play with some cheaper ones in the past and, usually, they take off and then crash. The end. My flying skills aren’t the …

Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus – Review

OK, first things you need to know. This, the Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus, is £189 on the Wileyfox website or (as I type) £164.99 on Amazon. SIM free in both places of course. It has a 5″ 1280×720 screen at 296 PPI with 2.5d Corning Gorilla Glass 3. …

LG G6 – Review

I’ve gone through some phases with my smartphones. I switched over to Android with the HTC Hero. It was then a succession of HTC handsets before I switched to a Samsung Galaxy device, but since then I’ve been firmly glued to an LG device. The LG G3 was …

ICZI 6 Port USB Hub – Review

  It may be that I’m that sort of person, but I’ve always had cables hanging around. Even before I was messing about with computers or mobile phones, there were scart leads and coax cables, RCA cables, speaker cable and the list would probably go on if I …
