They offer a huge upgrade from your phone’s tinny built-in speakers and range in price from premium high-end models to great speakers that cost less than $50.

What is the best Bluetooth speaker?

Our pick for the best Bluetooth speaker is the UE Megaboom 3. The Megaboom 3 sounds great when playing all genres of music, offers an impressive 20 hours of playback, and is sturdy enough to face the elements outdoors. It’ll even survive an accidental drop in the pool.

The best Bluetooth speaker for those on a budget is the Anker SoundCore 2. For $40, the SoundCore 2 delivers loud sound in a durable, compact body. While it’s a bit small for the average backyard party, it’s great to toss in your bag for a beach venture or other outing. Plus its 24 battery life will survive any day trip you have in mind.

How to choose the best Bluetooth speaker for you

There are a couple things you’ll want to consider when shopping for a Bluetooth speaker, the first of which is whether you want it to be wireless or wired. While a number of wired speakers like the Amazon Echo provide excellent Bluetooth listening, you can’t bring them outside your kitchen or living room. Stick to a speaker with a rechargeable battery for on-the-go audio.

With that, you’ll need to decide if an option with a voice assistant is the best Bluetooth speaker for you. If you plan to use your speaker in your backyard, it could be useful to have Google Assistant’s or Alexa’s powers at your disposal. That way you can change the music using your voice, rather than controlling the audio through your phone. These smart features will not work beyond your home’s Wi-Fi, so opt for a non-smart Bluetooth speaker for the beach or other outdoorsy locales.

How we test the best Bluetooth speakers

Every product on this list is considered the best Bluetooth speaker for one or more standout features, however each must meet basic requirements during our testing to be considered. We spend several hours listening to music, making calls and toting around every speaker to make sure it sounds great across all genres, provides solid call quality and withstands minor bumps or splashes.

If a speaker offers smart features, we enable the supported voice assistant to see how it fares against other top rated smart speakers. We’ll use it to control smart home devices, browse playlists and get answers to other common queries.

We also test battery life, exhausting each speaker’s battery after a full charge to see how long it can last under realistic conditions. A smart speaker connected to Wi-Fi should last at least 10 hours, while a standard Bluetooth speaker should last around 20. Most people want to know how much play time they can expect when their speaker is brought along for a day trip.

LG Wing with Rotating Secondary Display Official Unveiled-Specifications And Features

Published

on

LG WING

We first heard about the LG Wing in the first half of the year, with murmurings that the firms was working on a whacky form factor. The idea of a phone with a smaller, second screen that pops out from the back sounded really outlandish, but it’s real and it’s finally here.

What should you expect from this offbeat smartphone? And is it a one-trick pony or does it have much more to offer? Here’s what you should know about the LG Wing.

LG Wing: At a glance

he LG Wing is the first phone in the manufacturer’s Explorer Project, promising innovative designs in the smartphone space. Of course, the dominant design feature here is the second screen that pops out from the back to sit at a perpendicular angle to the main screen. But another noteworthy design decision is a 32MP pop-up selfie camera, hidden at the top of the rear half.

Meanwhile, the LG Wing’s core specs are a Snapdragon 765G chipset with 5G, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4.000 mAh battery.

The Wing packs a rather interesting rear camera setup, featuring a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 12MP “Ultra Wide Big Pixel” camera. LG says you also have a “Gimbal Motion Camera” feature which allows you to use the second screen as a grip and delivers a suite of capabilities to the 12MP camera.

Some of the touted photo/video capabilities in this regard include a “joystick” for controlling the camera angle, a lock mode to reduce blur and judder, follow functionality for smoother video when on the go, a pan follow mode for horizontal movement, and a “first-person view mode” for “rhythmic and dynamic” movements.

LG Wing: The second screen explained

The phone can be used in a so-called Basic mode or in the Swivel mode, with the former seeing the 3.9-inch second screen hidden away and operating as a normal phone. Pop-out the screen for Swivel mode and LG says certain apps can be used across both screens or two apps can be used at once (one on each screen).

One early pre-release clip showed the main screen being used for GPS navigation while the second screen handled a call and music. A second pre-release video showed a racing game being played on the main screen and the game’s track layout on the smaller screen. LG also gave the example of watching a video on the main screen while texting on the second display or watching a video on the big display and getting media controls on the small screen.

There’s no word on the number of apps that currently support the LG Wing, but we will hopefully see adoption improve over time. For what it’s worth, the LG Second Screen accessory hasn’t seen much adoption from developers.

LG is also offering a Multi App feature that echoes a similar feature seen on the Galaxy Fold and Surface Duo lines. This will allow you to create a shortcut to quickly launch a desired pair of apps. If you want to watch a local video while browsing the web, you could theoretically create a shortcut to open your video player and browser in one go.

LG has focused on durability too, saying that the hinge mechanism should last for 200,000 swivels. This is equivalent to just over 100 motions daily for five years, LG says. It’s also added a special material to the back of the main screen to protect the second screen from being scratched and to enable smoother pop-outs.

LG Wing competition and alternatives

The LG Wing is unlike any other phone we’ve seen yet, so finding alternatives to it might be a tough endeavor.

In saying so, the Microsoft Surface Duo is similarly unique, while also offering two separate screens. The big difference here is that the Surface Duo offers two equally sized screens in a book-like arrangement, as opposed to the Wing’s big screen/little screen setup. Still, you’re also getting the ability to run an app on each screen or one app across both screens. You’re also getting the aforementioned app pair functionality to launch two specific apps at once. The Surface Duo’s $1,400 price tag and anemic spec sheet (no 5G, NFC, wireless charging, or multiple cameras) might be major deal-breakers though.

Another potential LG Wing alternative is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, also offering multitasking capabilities and two screens (a smartphone display on the outside and a tablet-sized screen on the inside). Toss in a 120Hz refresh rate for the main screen, nifty Flex Mode functionality, and capable cameras, and you’ve got a great foldable. Unfortunately, this comes at a cost of $2,000.

There’s nothing really like the LG Wing, with other foldable and the LG V60 perhaps coming closest.

The LG V60 could also be up your alley if you’re looking for a full-featured smartphone with an interesting trick up its sleeve. Like other recent LG flagships, the V60 has a Second Screen accessory that gives you a dual-screen foldable experience. This isn’t quite as polished and pocket-friendly as the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but you still have the ability to run an app on each screen or one across both displays. Best of all, it’s available for around $900 in the US, making it much cheaper than the aforementioned Samsung and Microsoft devices.

Pricing and availability

The LG Wing hasn’t received a specific US price just yet, although the firm told us it would cost roughly $1,000. The company says the phone will be available in the US via Verizon at first, followed by AT&T and T-Mobile. LG adds that pricing, availability, specs, and color options will vary by network.
