Bluetooth has surely made life easy for people who do not like the use of wires. Wires always get tangled up which is why Bluetooth speakers are amazing.

A powerful speaker as this one is capable of loud sounds regardless of its size. The price itself is lower than most Bluetooth speakers including that of Bose.

The Oontz Angle 3 Plus automatically pairs itself with the last phone it was paired with, lessening the time to connect. The design of the Oontz Angle 3 Plus only contains a play/pause button and no volume adjustment, which means you have to use the screen to perform most of the functions. Do not worry if you get a phone call in the middle of the song. The Oontz Angle allows the ability to become an auxiliary speaker with clear sounds. The major feature of this speaker is the IPX5 rating which means it is not only splash proof but also rain, dust proof with a hard surface that can survive a large impact. You can take the speakers with you at the beach and enjoy your favorite songs while you bathe in the sun. The lower price, durability and loud sounds are good enough reasons for people to buy it. Hopefully, the speakers will have a lasting impression on you the first time you look at it.

​Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Phone (Arctic Silver)

Posted on 21 August 2017

​Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was not really up to the customer standards. Many people debated online over the battery-burning smartphone that had no new features. Samsung faced stiff competition from the new iPhone and other smartphones, which is why the designers had to go back to the drawing board and find a way to meet customer demands.

The new Samsun Galaxy Note 8 brought with it just the amount of creativity that was needed. With curved shoulders and two rear cameras along with a glossy finish, the Note 8 stands a fighting chance. The 6.3-inch screen and the wireless charging make the phone one of the most advanced of its time. The wireless technology is still in the working and Samsung immediately showcasing a smart phone with the feature gives it the modern edge it needs in the market. The similarities include the same water resistance and stylus features. Except for a few new basic options, the stylus pretty much does the same work as the previous Samsun Galaxy Note editions.

The twin cameras are really what the fuss is about in online tech communities. Samsung’s new smart phone brings a new definition to the iPhone’s portrait mode with better quality pictures. Samsung also made sure that they do not repeat the mistake of last year and have added an efficient battery that lasts longer. Customers are amazed at how well the battery works considering it is a high-powered smart phone. In no time, Samsung’s leading smart phone will flock the market with millions of buyers. However, the only problem is the competition it faces. The Google pixel 2 and the LGV30 smart phones are in line with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and it would require some serious marketing efforts to get customers on either side.

VIZIO E50-E1: Ultra HD Home Theater Display™ Review

Posted on 18 August 2017

We have observed how TVs from the same series of a dedicated company provide a relatively similar experience, despite the difference in size. The same cannot be said about Vizio’s latest release, the 2017 E-series.

The distinctive quality of every Vizio TV in the E Series, including the E50-E1, which sets it apart from the others, is its SmartCast system. Alternatively known as a Chromecast built-in, the feature enables you to stream videos on your TV via your smartphone. You can also control most of its functions simply from your phone. Whether you want to play your favorite music on Spotify, or watch your favorite TV series on Netflix, the E50-E1 has it all.

SmartCast gives you access to some features that are absent in Chromecast, such as that of Amazon Video. A “Google Home” option is also available, which lets you interact with your TV using voice control.

However, there are aspects of the E Series that might cause to you to think twice about buying the HD screen. One of these is the huge diversity in picture quality of the screens. Screens that are larger than 55 inches provide excellent picture quality, but most companies are not able to deliver in this aspect. What the Vizio E-Series lacks is good picture quality when it comes to their smaller screens.

However, the E50-51 is still one of the best available options for you if you’re a fan of excellent medium-sized HD display. A 4k HD panel with a resolution of 3840×2160 provides the perfect Smart TV experience, with ultra HD display and lightning fast streaming. The screen is embedded with active LED Zones, which aims to enhance sharpness in color and depth in contrast.
If you’re a fan of Smart TVs that can actually deliver what they promise, you should definitely add the Vizio E50-E1 to your list of choices. At a price of $470, you should make sure you really want it because you have a lot of choices with this kind of a budget.

Posted on 17 August 2017

The introduction of the Razer Tiamet 7.1 has left gaming fanatics drooling over its efficiency and performance and has left other companies spellbound with its supremacy. It has been described on Razer’s website as being the world’s first circumaural headphones (full size headphones), which uses 10 discrete drivers to provide gamers the most amazing audio experience they have ever had.

Ask yourself what price you’re willing to pay to listen to the footsteps of your opponent to gain an upper hand on him. Do you want to precisely “pinpoint” your enemy’s location by accurately tracing the sound of a gunshot? Well these things might not be possible with your regular headsets, but with the Tiamet 7.1, you have an edge over your opponent because of the efficiency of your audio device.

The Razer Tiamet 7.1 is equipped with 10 discrete drivers, 5 in each cup, which provide a gaming experience that is exponentially more stimulating than regular headsets. The sound is so clear and lifelike that you will feel you are actually there and this acoustic awareness will allow you to dominate the battlefield with ease and confidence.

A control unit is also supplied, which can be used to easily tune your headphones. Adjust the volume of each audio channel individually to enhance sound quality, depending on the game and its sound effects. Turn up the bass or tone it down, it is all a matter of personal preference. The control box makes it extremely simple to configure your headset. It also gives you the ability to switch between your desktop speakers and your headphones at the press of a button, saving you the time and the effort of rewiring your device.

The Tiamet 7.1 is also equipped with a boom mic – which is easily adjustable. You can bend the mic in any position, adjusting it to suit your convenience. This is to facilitate in-game chat, which can be vital to turn the odds in your favor.

Experts at Razer have outdone themselves with a product that has attracted the attention of gamers throughout the industry. Sure, they come with a $200 price tag, but the experience – that really matters.

The Vizio D65-E0: Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV

Posted on 14 August 2017

When we talk about decorating our rooms, there is a lot to think about. You cannot afford to go astray with anything that doesn’t compliment the design and color scheme of your furniture. Even if you get everything right, you still need to take care of one small (not literally) detail – your TV.

With the advancement in technology, you do not have the leverage to buy something that will just be replaced by a bigger, badder model within six months. This is why you must go for something that is good enough to stay “new” for the long run. Go for the Vizio D65-E0, a 65-inch flat screen that gives you an amazing experience without causing huge strain on your wallet.

Experts at Vizio have become highly popular, not just because of good appliances they have produced, but also because they somehow manage to mess up something or the other in their models. Their series always have a model or two that shut their critics up, apart from the rest, which range from average to highly mediocre TVs.

The Vizio D65-E0 can be classified as being one of those products that have brought endless fame to the company. With its outstanding picture quality and reasonable price, it’s a force to be reckoned with. It owes its superior picture quality to a “local dimming” feature, which increases sharpness in color and depth in sharpness, providing a better visual experience, especially clarity in dark scenes, which some of the best TVs fail to deliver.

Apart from its functional efficiency, the Vizio D65 is aesthetically sound as well. It has a thin metallic frame with conventional spindly legs that give it a contemporary design. Having it in your room will just add to its ambience.

The Vizio D65-E0 gives you a superb experience with its 4k HD display at a price that is significantly less than TVs from other brands. Its price tag of $850 makes it a successful product because no other company is offering a screen this size at a price this low.
