OontZ Angle 3 Ultra is of the preferred portable Bluetooth speakers solely because it perfectly balances the ratio between the features provided and the rate quoted. The trilateral speaker, which is modestly priced under 50 US Dollar, offers a list of features such as IPX7 water-resistant rating and Bluetooth 5.0 connection. Possible customers may have come across brilliant reviews for Anker Soundcore 2 and wonder which one to choose between it and OontZ Angle 3 Ultra. Both the speakers are almost similar in price, size and water resistance. So it all boils down to decisions made based on distinctive features.
To start with the most apparent: battery life, OontZ Angle 3 Ultra has a 20 hours battery while Anker Soundcore 2 holds a slightly higher battery power (24 hours). But Anker’s Bluetooth range of 66 foot is no match for Oontz’s 100-foot reach. Oontz is triangular and has the dimensions of 6.5×2.8×2.8 inches while Anker’s rectangular speakers are 6.5 x 2.2 x 1.8 inches in size. The sizes are not very different, and both of them are considerably compact. Both run on the 4.2 Bluetooth version, but Oontz has a power of 14 Watt whereas Anker falls short in this arena with a 10 Watt power capacity. Coming to their most popularized feature, i.e. water resistance, Oontz is IPX6 water-resistant and IPX7 resistant.
