LOUD BASSTARD

NOT. A. SPEAKER.

Well, in a way, it is. It’s more of an amplifier. Imagine playing songs on your phone and putting it inside a mug or a cup to amplify the sound, except 100x BETTER. 

We didn’t actually buy this. It was actually given to us during a trip hosted by Ford and Bambike (if you guys want to know what we did during that day, click here).

Personally, I don’t always use the Loud Basstard. Why? Whenever I play songs on my phone, I usually use it at the same time to play games, go on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other stuff I usually do on my phone. The Loud Basstard requires you to put your phone in the slot and leave it there the entire time. It’s good for people who aren’t on their phones almost 100% of the time. 

Quality-wise, it doesn’t sound like you put your phone in a tin can to amplify the sound. It sounds good. Not great but not bad at all.

Love it. Like it. Hate it. To each his own. I just LIKE it. That’s it. Nothing too special about it.

Logitech X50 Speakers

Small.

Portable.

LOUD.

Yes. It is really loud. It fits in the palm of your hands and yet it can compete with the loudness and strength of bigger speakers.

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Wireless connection: (Bluetooth)
  • Rechargeable battery: Can last for 5 hours without recharging.
  • Auxiliary input: Can connect a 3.5mm audio cable.
  • Multi-device speaker: Can be used on various gadgets (Smartphones, Tablets, etc.)

It also comes with a charging cable (micro USB) and of course, the manual.

Also, the bottom part of the speakers features a non-slip type of rubber. This is great especially if you’re playing songs that are bass heavy (E.D.M. type of songs) and you don’t want it suddenly falling of the table unexpectedly because we all know that has happened to each and every one of us. Don’t you dare deny it.

Not much to say anymore except that this is a great companion during road trips, outings, hotel staycations, or even if you’re just at home and chilling.

If you’re looking for portable speakers, please do add this to your list because you won’t be disappointed.

ASUS ZenFone Selfie review

See the Perfect you. ASUS’ catchphrase. Catchy actually. Especially with a phone like this.

If you like taking selfies, pictures, and whatever else it is that you do with a camera, then this phone is for you.

The ASUS Zenfone Selfie has a 13 megapixel rear camera and also a 13 megapixel front cam. Yes. You read it right. A 13 megapixel front camera. It also runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, octa-core, 64-bit, Adreno 405 GPU, processor.

To capture the moment as quickly as possible, the Selfie allows you to take pictures in a snap using ZenMotion gestures. While the screen is turned off, drawing an S on the display will take you straight to the camera’s front-facing picture mode, but if you’d rather use a different gesture, you can easily create one of your own in the settings.

There’s also a treasure trove of 16 additional modes to take advantage of: selfie panorama (for 140-degree angles), auto, manual, HDR, super-resolution, low light, night, depth of field, effect, GIF animation,miniature, time-rewind, smart remove, all smiles, slow-mo, time lapse.

This phone definitely is the BOMB. I’ve stopped using phones running on the android platform, but with this phone, I don’t mind using one again. 

Check out the pics:

This phone’s design is so simple. Which makes it look so cool. Sometimes, overdoing the design of an item can make it look so underwhelming instead of making it look better. In this case, the simpler the design, the better the outcome.
