Let's dig deeper
So, how does it perform? As stated previously, Andromedia claim this device will give you a "home theater effect," through the utilization of two separated speakers on each side of your smartphone. Sitting at my home desk and listening to Spotify through a wide variety of tracks brought me to appreciate how the separated speakers work. They don't provide you with a full surround sound cinema experience, but they certainly sound fine.
There's one main issue with this product and it's the same as you will see with basically any small speaker system - a lack of bass. Thanks to the small product design and the speakers only providing you a 4W output, lovers of punchy or big bass need skip over portable speakers completely - unless you're willing to cart around something that's much larger and more expensive.
As for further testing - playing music in my kitchen while I was preparing meals saw the device shine. Not only is my phone propped up nicely for me to be able to change songs as I see fit, but it also helps tie it in with the total package. Not only does the whole set-up look great, because the grip is so firm, you can easily pick up the phone and device together by picking up the back of the device.
The NFC and Bluetooth connections are extremely easy as you would expect, alongside the 3.5mm AUX-in jack working as it should. As per usual, the quality is slightly better when using the Bluetooth connection - it's well worth the trade-off in battery life.
There's another use that you probably haven't thought of yet. If you're not holding the phone within the curved body, the whole device actually fits quite well around your neck - making you an awesome portable speaker at any party or home-event. There will be no-one cooler on the premises, that's for sure.
There are a couple of issues with the device that I'd like to point out, though. Thanks to the design, there's next-to-no way for you to be able to charge your phone and prop it up at the same time, alongside there being no 3.5mm out jack meaning that this device couldn't be used on a plane trip or library - if they could implement this, I think the final review score could jump as high as 10% up.
There's also the issue of a small battery, thanks to the physical size of the product. Coming in at 600mAh, it's certainly enough for a few hours of play-time, however, if you're camping, expect your phone and speaker to die within eight hours' time.
