I'm a huge Amazon fan. Mainly because the prices are the
cheapest, the service/returns policy is the best. And through the magic
of 'affiliates', you
can now browse and buy just the smartphone and tech kit you need on
Amazon right here. Although the kit won't cost you a penny more, a few
pennies do go to this site, to help keep the wheels turning and the
Phones Show on the air. Thanks in advance!
Note that if
you want to buy stuff other than these bargains, you'll
find it easiest to just
use this link through to the main Amazon site, so that your
searches will work across all products!
Here then are my current Top Bargains and Tech Picks, as at
April 2019 - take your pick! Note that these aren't just plucked
page - each of these is based on my personal use and all
the kit that I
have in my own gadget bag and car.... 8-)
Triple XXX headphones - these massively out perform their UKP50
are essentially reference audio in your ear canals. Crystal clear bass
and top end, thanks to three speaker drivers in each ear. See also my AAWP review.
- Or, if you'd rather go wireless, see the Tribit XFree Bluetooth
headphones - I've tried loads of Bluetooth headphones under UKP100
and these are the best. Yes, the buttons are stiff and need more of a
nail 'pinch', yes, the gimmicky 'handles' to fit in the outer ear
aren't needed, but the Tribit XFree are all about audio quality - it's
stunning. Maybe not totally pure (this is Bluetooth, after all), but
rich bass, clear top end, amazing sound stage, and all for a
guide price of UKP24. Amazing. Reviewed by me here.
Element Force - it's the ultimate Bluetooth speaker -
indestructible, super loud and bassy output, charges via Type C. And it
now travels with me wherever I go (overnight, at least!) See also my AAWP review here. Guide price UKP45
Type C 'mini hub' charging and listening adapter - this is the one
you need if your smartphone only outputs digital audio (think Pixels,
HTC, recent Sonys) - now available in red! Guide price is UKP17. Reviewed by me here.
- HIDIZS pro-grade DAC/dongle - if you're a real audiophile
then this is the way to get top notch high volume, high quality audio
out of any phone with a USB Type C port. Prices seem to vary with
availability, but I paid UKP28. They're UKP40 or so when I last looked. Reviewed by me here!
- One more headphone set to recommend, this time for sports
fans: Veho 360
Water Resistant Sports Earphone - although not advertised as hi-fi
quality, these are tremendous. OK, they need two hands free to 'fit',
but they stay in place and have a full 1cm speaker driver. Terrific
bass! Guide price 10 UKP, which is staggering value.
- EasyAcc Megacharge D20,
UKP35 or so, but worth it. 20,000mAh, quad output, double input, QC 3.0
compatibility, tough casing and a really bright floodlight torch! See my review here.
ultra colourful folding smartphone stand
- Veho T2 laptop bag - impressive all round padding
for laptop, travel essentials (shirt, toiletries etc.) and all manner
of gadgets, with pockets and slots and so on. And it converts into a
backback in seconds, with padded shoulder straps. Guide price 25 UKP.
mains USB charger - UK accessory, solid and capable with twin
outputs and QC3.0 compatibility. Guide price under 12 UKP
