iClever IC-BTS02 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review

iClever's Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is one of the best cheap Bluetooth speakers we've tried. It sounds good, it looks great and it's affordable. Read our iClever IC-BTS02 review.

Should I Buy The iClever IC-BTS02 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker?
We really like iClever's Bluetooth Wireless Speaker. Audiophiles will still prefer to spend 40 times the price (and then some), but for most of us this £25 speaker is portable, good-looking and offers more than adequate sound.

iClever IC-BTS02 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker review: Good looks, great sound and just £25 iClever's Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is one of the best cheap Bluetooth speakers we've tried. It sounds good, it looks great and it's affordable.

It's surprising just how much sound emanates from this tiny zinc-alloy box. Given that you can easily fit the 64.5x64.5x70.1mm, 261g iClever in a single hand, the 5W speaker hidden inside does a much better job than we should reasonably might expect from such a portable Bluetooth speaker, both good on bass and free from distortion at high volume.

The 5W speaker inside the iClever offers bedroom-filling sound that is much louder than what's available from your phone, tablet or laptop, although its meshed-top design forces it to throw audio upward rather than around the room. With Bluetooth 4.0 technology it also boasts good range (up to 33ft), and we experienced no dropouts walking room to room with paired phone in hand. If your mobile device doesn't support Bluetooth you can instead use the Bluetooth Wireless Speaker's AUX connection, and a cable is included in the box.

Pairing a device over Bluetooth is as simple as flicking a power switch and then finding and tapping on the iClever in your phone or tablet's Bluetooth Available devices menu. This little device can remember up to eight Bluetooth connections, which is useful if several family members will be using it, and it will automatically connect to the last paired device when available.

The price is appealing. While you'll find many Bluetooth speakers listed online that feature the same design - a premium-feeling glossy black zinc-alloy box with blue trim, each with their own vendor's logo stamped on the front - the iClever is the cheapest we found, at £25.99 on Amazon. Our only gripe with the design is its penchant for fingerprints; sat and left on the side this may not matter, but the iClever features three bottom-mounted buttons for altering the volume and playing, pausing and skipping tracks, which force you to pick up the speaker. (Or you could just use the controls on your phone, of course.)

The iClever also has a noise-cancelling mic that can capture dialogue from up to 2m; a button on the front of the device lets you accept phone calls and chat via the speaker itself. This makes the IC-BTS02 ideal for conducting group conversations.

Battery life is good, and with low-power Bluetooth 4.0 tech inside you can expect eight- to 12 hours of playback - more over the AUX connection. The iClever will automatically switch off after 15 minutes of inactivity, preserving its power reserves.

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.
