Retro TV Smartphone Holder and Speaker for $16.99

Actually a mobile phone holder, this small “TV” also includes a Bluetooth speaker. Thus the Smartphone becomes the 70’s tube television. If you want something like that.

Retro Speaker and mobile phone holder

This gadget would be worth a mention as a smartphone holder alone – retro always works. The principle is as simple as it is ingenious: The smartphone is simply inserted, the picture is set to landscape format and you look at it on a small monitor. The only limitation is that, depending on the size of the display, the edge of the picture is cut off. An indication of the maximum mobile phone size can be found on one of the product photos – 5 to 6.5 inches. But if one assumes the given dimensions of 8 x 18 cm for the TV, one can probably assume that rather “smaller” models are supported. So a Mi A2 rather than a Mi MAX 3.

The holder is available in three different colours: orange, white and “coffee”. Also here you can choose as according to your personal taste.

Provided the phone fits, the screen looks pretty good.

Almost irrelevant is perhaps the function as a loudspeaker. This is a Bluetooth speaker with 3 watts of power and a 1200 mAh battery. Without having heard it, I suspect that it’s rather below-average quality. Just my tip: Don’t buy the holder because you want a speaker for your smartphone.

But if you like the design (and if you have a sufficiently small smartphone), you’ll find a cool holder for watching videos on your smartphone here. The Divoom TIVOO has a similar design, but is a pure Bluetooth speaker (a good one too). But with more than $60 it costs a whole lot more. And, of course, it lacks the ability to simply play videos on the smartphone display.

I love Gadgets destined to ease your everyday life - e.g. smart home gadgets. I own a few Xiaomi Gadgets (Xiaomi Mi A1, Xiaomi Yeelight Bedside Lamp, Xiaomi Wifi Repeater etc.), and would consider myself a fan :)
