Review: OMorc over the ear Bluetooth headphones.

Update:
I have re-reviewed the product with my Xperia Z5 premium and it didn't have the stuttering issue I got when testing with my Chromebook.  Also, the sound was slightly better.

As this proves your mileage will vary.



Today I'm reviewing the OMorc over the ear Bluetooth headphones, which as of this review cost £19.99.

On first look, the headphone felt plasticky.  I like the fact that the arms can fold to a slightly more compact size.  The cups were fairly comfortable but not my cup of tea.  I'm not too fond of over the ear headphone because of their bulkiness.  Also, I feel that the cups were not the most comfortable.

Soundwise, the quality sounds OK.  It's not the best headphone nor the best.  The headphone isn't exactly noise canceling but the cups cancel out some sound.

However, one fault of the headphone is that the sound slightly stutters if I moved my head when wearing the headphone.  Moving the headphone while the sound is playing also result in stuttering.

Review: Omorc Foot File

Today I'm reviewing the Omorc foot file for £22.19.  I got the product as  a free sample, but this won't influence my review.

Pros:
Waterproof (ipx4)
Works
Comes with 2 replacement

Cons:
Turns off automatically

In the box is a useful instruction booklet, containing the all important information about the operation of the device a well as a short USB charging cable, 2 spare rollers, a cleaning brush, and the device itself. Also there is a cover that can be put on the device to protect the roller.

The product works as expected so nothing to comment on that aspect.  It removes dead skin as described.  The product has an IX4 rating, so it can withstand water splashes.  One thing I do not like about the product is that it turns off automatically after a certain amount of time.  Also, to charge the product, there is a small hole in the product.  However, the rubber is so thick that I was initially not sure whether I was in the charging hole or not.

All in all, it is a good product, but I do not like the auto turn off feature.

Omorc Smart Fitness Tracker

Today I'm reviewing the Omorc Smart Fitness Tracker with Sleep Monitor which cost £20.99.  I have received this device as a sample for review, but this won't influence my opinion of the device.

Pros:

  • Comfortably fit on the hand
  • Does the job
  • Show time and date
  • Show notification


Cons:

  • Non intuitive settings
  • Can show notification but cannot interact with them
  • Hard to put on the wrist

One thing I need to make it clear is that this fitness tracker is no smart watch.  It comes nowhere close to the Android Wear.  For example, although it can show notifications of incoming emails, you can't see the details of the emails.  In the same vein, although the device show incoming calls, there is no way to pick up the call without using the phone.  Furthermore, the "find your phone" feature never worked for me.

In addition, I feel the user interface is non intuitive it's clunky and hard to use.  It uses a combination of top to down swipe and left to wipe swipe to navigate the menu.  Also in the mix is tap to access a menu and then hard long press to select the menu item.

Wrist secure pongs
When I first got the device I had trouble registering to the Zeroner app.  However, apparently one of my attempts got through, but when I tried to reset my password, I wasn't able to.  It would say reset password sent but as of the writing of this email, I have received no reset password emails.  This is a severe oversight.

Now going to the physical aspect.  The watch is quick slick and goes on comfortably on the wrist.  However, instead of using the traditional clasp system found in traditional watches, it has two prongs that pushes into the hole bands.  To charge, the entire watch face has to be disconnected from the band to reveal a USB male port.  This is quite inconvenient to remove every time I need to charge.  Other reviewers list this as a pro but I find this a con as the rubber is quite stiff and I fear breaking it every time I remove the product from the band.


USB interface

Would I recommend the device?  No.  The non intuitive interface combined with the problem with the Zeroner companion app, and the charging mechanism prevent me from recommending this device.

Review: VicTsing 20000mAh Power Bank with LED Flashlight

Today I'll be reviewing the VictSing 20000 mAh power bank with LED flash light.  The device costs £28.99 on Amazon.  VictSing has kindly provided a sample device but this would not influence my decision.

Pros

  • 20000 mAh, which can fully charge a Sony Xperia Z5 from flat to full at least once
  • Two out port to charge two devices simultaneously
  • Contain a flashlight
  • Charges using MicroUSB
  • Battery level indicator

Cons
  • Heavy
  • NOT Qualcomm QuickCharge.  Charges phone using standard charge.  Charges itself up with standard charge as well
  • Rather chunky
First off the bat you would notice is it's weight and the size.  This is not a light weight battery bank.  However, for it's size you get 20000 mAh of juice.  According to calculations, that is enough to fill the 3430 mAh Xperia Z5 Premium from flat about 5 times but I haven't personally tested the number of times you can fully recharge the phone.



Would I recommend the power bank?  No.  For the price you might as well get one with Qualcomm QuickCharge 3/2.
