The Listening Experience
I used the LuguLake BT-10 in two different environments, in my quiet office, and outside with a few friends around. Inside of my office, there were no problems at all. The sound was enough to fill my room with audio, to be able to hear it from all corners nice and clear.
When it came to sitting outside with some friends and the BT-10 blasting away, it did a good job of filling the area we were sitting in with audio, but it definitely didn't perform as well as it did in my quiet office.
For those who want to sum up the entire review in a few points, the What's Hot and What's Not part of my review will help you. Skip right to this bit if you want a quick read, or if you want to find out what I found to be the most notable parts of the BT-10, we're going to jump into that right now.
A Different Design: The truth is, the LuguLake BT-10 looks far different to what I'm used to reviewing when it comes to portable speakers, but I really enjoyed its look.
Large Phone/Tablet Stand: The best thing about the BT-10 would have to be its stand. I was able to slot my Xperia Z2 on it, as well as my Z2 Tablet (a 10-inch slate at that) without a problem. Large enough to not worry what phone or tablet to be placed on it.
Expensive: For what it is, the BT-10 is expensive. If it had better sound, I'd definitely think twice, but at $90, it's just too expensive. Even though it's on sale right now with Amazon at $39.99, the original price that LuguLake are charging for it is $89.99. If you can still get it at around $40, you could consider it.
LuguLake has an interesting speaker with the BT-10: while it sounds good, it's $90. It looks great, but it's $90. It has a large phone/tablet stand, but... it's $90. This is the biggest problem here. While the price is $40 on Amazon right now, the original price was $89.99. LuguLake had it priced far too high.
It dropped in the two weeks or so while I was using the BT-10, from $44.99 to $34.99 and now to $39.99, so that's another good point for the speaker. If you want a stylish speaker with a physical 3.5mm jack on it, and enjoy the design, the BT-10 is $39.99 right now.

The Bottom Line: LuguLake needs to show improvement in its next speaker, with the BT-10 being less than impressive. It is built well, sounds fairly good, but it's still lacking. A retail price of $90 doesn't help, even if it's on sale for $40.
