Gladius Mini – For when you want an underwater drone

I’ve just been watching the utterly disastrous Donald Trump saying how Hurricane Florence has been one of the wettest from the standpoint of water. He also, amazingly, tells the world that the Hurricane was “not good”. Wow. So, after I’d finished laughing at the utter fool, I received …

Fancy some rugged Jelly? Meet the Atom

Last year we reviewed the teeny-tiny Unihertz Jelly Pro. It’s a regular Android phone, but shrunken down to 7.8 x 12.5 x 5 cm with a 2.45″ screen. There’s everything in there that you’d expect. WiFi, GPS, 4G and all the usual apps, but it’s tiny enough to …

Tsumbay Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Yep. I got me a Bluetooth speaker. This one has a 5W output and is waterproof. Inside is a 2200mAh battery which should keep you going for about 20 hours and it takes 3-4 hours to charge up from scratch. By waterproof we mean that it’s shower resistant. …

ZeroWater 7-cup Water Filtration Jug – Review

Today, my friends, I bring you a water filter. Yes, a water filter. Where I work the water tastes a bit… “funny”. I’m based on a farm, and although the tea and coffee is passable, when you drink the water straight out of the tap it can taste …

Polk BOOM Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Going for a bike ride? Taking a shower? A bath? Perhaps you’re on a boat or you’re taking a holiday? Want some music for your travels? Well, check this new speaker out from Polk Audio. It’s the Swimmer Duo speaker and, although it’ll work fine on it’s own, …

Can a Galaxy S7 survive your toilet?

The release of a new phone usually means the publication of some mad video from somebody, somewhere, doing something crazy with it. Whether it be dropping it or getting it wet, there’s usually some sort of damage involved and we all sit back, laugh and point at how …

Ulla – Reminding you to drink !

I’ve said this a few times before, but we really are starting to get some new and interesting things in the ‘ole Coolsmartphone inbox now. Today it’s this little magic water reminder thing (that’s my description anyway). It straps onto a water bottle and reminds you to drink …

Reviveaphone Splash Review

Have you ever caught yourself trying to hide out of the rain so that you can check something on your mobile? Don’t worry, we have all been there and if you are not lucky enough to own a flagship from Sony, Samsung or indeed Motorola then you will …

Admit it. You need this.

Yes, I recently dropped my phone into a pool. I tried to dry it out, but alas the damage was done. I didn’t have one of those clever EVAP pouches to try and get the moisture out and I quickly learned to be a bit more careful. Trouble is, …

Going on holiday? Don’t forget to use protection

Some months ago I wrote up a review of this TouchAbility waterproof case. If I remember correctly I splashed it with water, got the hose-pipe on it and gave it some positive feedback. However, it’s rare that reviewers get enough time to do a full-on test. Say, for …

Give your phone flower power!

If there’s one thing I’m never really much good at, it’s watering the plants. During my recent bike ride to Paris pretty much everyone at home forgot and my hanging baskets sadly fired dried up and became hanging soil carriers. It’s either a sad statement on modern life …

Kensington EVAP Rescue Pouch review

I’ll be honest, Kensington sent me this a long while ago and it sat in a drawer for far too long. I’d forgotten about it until this last weekend, when “something” happened. The EVAP Rescue Pouch is a step up from the “bag of rice” solution should your …

Sony Xperia Z goes for a swim

We’re getting a number of retailers approaching us at the minute. They’d all like us to promote the fact that the Sony Xperia Z is available from them. Tesco have sent us a lovely video featuring staff member Peter Statham. He’s 72. Yes, 72. Peter works in Tesco …

Google release underwater maps of coral reefs

You may have noticed that maps have been in the news quite a lot recently. It seems that Google are enjoying the attention their main competitor is getting, and has decided to launch the latest addition to their navigation suite: Underwater Maps! The first places to be mapped …

Sony Xperia Go now available for £199.99

The boys at eXpansys have promised us a brand new tablet if we pimp the heck out of this, so here goes (OK, they haven’t. but we can dream eh?) The Sony Xperia Go is now up for £199.99 on their site. That’s unlocked, and cheaper than the …

Giffgaff get a little wet, major network outage ensues

We like Giffgaff. They’ve done things a little differently and built up quite a following. Today, though, has not been a good day. A major service outage hit the network – one that took almost 8 hours to fix. Calls, texts and data failed completely around mid-morning today …

PowerTrekk – Charge your phone, with water

OK. Two words. Smartphone. Battery. Battery life, it must be said, is usually pretty bobbins if you actually use your phone for any length of time. Want to get from A to B? Get the GPS on, use the mapping feature, do a bit of browsing, record some …
