Harman/Kardon Esquire Mini

The Harman/Kardon Esquire Mini: mini footprint, maxi appeal
Audio enthusiasts worth their salt know and respect the Harman/Kardon brand – it’s got a pedigree that many other brands can only dream of attaining.
While it’s not perfect, the Esquire Mini Bluetooth speaker is a product that’s well worthy of bearing the Harman/Kardon logo. It’s an eminently portable and versatile speaker set that also happens to sound great and sips power – and it’s classy and stylish, too.
We’ve put a test unit through its paces, and here we tell you how it did.
Styling, features and initial impressions
The Esquire Mini doesn’t come with very much in the way of accessories. Slide open the drawer-style box (by tugging on either of two fabric tabs, a nice touch) to reveal the unit resting on a bed of black foam. Beneath it is...

LG G3 Review

With the success of the LG G2 last year, there was a lot of expectations on this year’s release from LG. Thus, we took our time to dig deeper into the new LG G3 to see if it met expectations. Check out our LG G3 review after the break.

JBL Synchros S100i Quick Review

Sony Xperia Z2 Review

Sony continues to improve on the Xperia Z concept they introduced about two years ago. Today, the 3rd-generation Xperia Z2 has surpassed almost all aspects of the original blueprint while maintaining that distinct signature. Check out our full review of the Sony Xperia Z2 after the break.

The Xperia Z2 followed the same design philosophy that Sony used in the Xperia Z, Xperia Z1 and the Z1 Compact so at first look, there might not be much difference to easily distinguish them from each other (unless of course you look closer).

We didn’t have the chance to own the Xperia Z but eventually got the Xperia...

Sony Xperia E1 Review

Walkmans have come a long way and if you’re a 90s kid, you pretty much know what I’m talking about. Now evolved into a mobile device, Sony has continued to keep the Walkman brand intact and has been incorporated into their mobile devices with audio being one of the main features.

It also comes in a dual-sim variant so this will be appealing.
