Extremely sturdy design : You can see the metal backbone after only a few short seconds inspecting the speaker. This makes for an extremely sturdy and well-built product. I can see it surviving many different camping, beach and global trips.
Tight-clamping: Even with the smaller iPhone 5, I had no issue lifting this product off the ground completely without supporting the phone with my hands at all - the clamp is great enough to remove any slippage issues but will not damage your phone.
Portable: Thanks to the way it folds, the Curve Mini will easily fit in your laptop bag or backpack
The weight: Unfortunately, due to the thick metal back-bone and solid plastic exterior, it's quite a heavy product. It's also a weird shape, meaning that the weight is oddly balanced - so you need to pick it up with care. Although it's so solid you could probably drop it and not care either way, as long as your phone survives the fall.
The bass: As seen with all of these small portable speaker options, there's a severe lack of punch, rumble and boom. Listeners of bass-heavy music and punchy offerings ranging from house music to heavy metal will be left disappointed if this is to be a main at-home product. However, if it's for travel, it's quite good.
Providing you with a solid package, plenty of hours of battery use and a firm clamp on your phone, we suggest the Andromedia Curve Mini speaker stand to any user looking for a travel alternative speaker solution.
If you're wanting a punchy and big-sound at-home solution, you should look into proper speakers, or our previously reviewed Arctic S113BT will be slightly more suitable.
This speaker does exactly what the company states and it does it well.
