This model is silver color and 13.3-inch screen and weight are 1.4kg. The built quality is awesome if we compare with other laptops that I reviewed in past it has the best-built quality. The screen is nice built and one-handed open. The hinges are very strong and perfectly tuned. The material is flexible and the laptop is super thin.
This model has 2 ports on both sides are USB Type C and support Thunderbolt 3 and a headphone jack. There is no SD Card slot. So, if you are a photographer or video producer then you should buy an external adapter. If you are charging your mac then you have an only single port to use! Very disappointed with Apple.
The keyboard is good. It has 2nd generation butterfly switches. The quality is much improved compare to the previous generation. Spacing is good and very comfortable for typing. The keyboard is more responsive compared to the previous generation.
It has also LED backlight that is much improved compare to the previous generation. Particular keys get their own LED light. It looks pretty good and LEDs are brighter.

The display is amazing and brighter. It is 67% brighter and 25% more color. The resolution is same as the previous generation is 2560*1600 224 pixel per inch. It is a very sharp retina display.
It has wide viewing angle and bezels are very thin. The image is good but you have to calibrate it first. Overall display quality is awesome. It has wide viewing angle and bezels are very thin. The image is good but you have to calibrate it first. Overall display quality is awesome.
The webcam is 720p FaceTime HD camera with green LED indicator is good but not great. The trackpad is relatively big but overall it’s a best one. Buttons are good and more responsive. When you are typing your palm accidentally touches to trackpad but don’t worry you can use palm rejection to avoid this.
Speakers are good and it is both sides of the keyboard. It has clean audio and no distortion at full volume. So, it’s a nice thing about it. Audio is very loud and deeper bass. It feels good even at high volume. The best thing about this model is Touch bar and touch ID. It is awesome and fully functional. You can use it for final cut pro editing, web browsing, and much more. I really like touch bar.
It has so many awesome features. There is no functions key but you can access from touch bar but it is virtual keys. You can also adjust volume and brightness of display from touch bar.
The drives are fast and the base model is 2.9GHz Intel Core i5 6360U dual-core sky lake processor. It has lower clock speed and performance is same as before. It has internal GPU and it’s running in Intel Iris Graphics 550. You can connect the 4K and 5K display with it. You can also connect external GPU for gaming. It has 8GB 2133MHz DDR3 RAM with 256GB of PCIE based SSD, which is very fast for memory storage. It has 3 microphones. This model will cost you around $1800.
The battery is 61WH and battery performance is good. For regular work, you will get 9 hours of battery life.
This model cost you around $1800 and you will get awesome built quality, amazing display, speakers and keyboard and awesome touch bar.
In my opinion, I really enjoy the touch bar and other features of MacBook Pro 2016 13-inch but it is very expensive. If you use baseline model of 2016 MacBook you will not get touch bar and it’s around $1500. I think it is very expensive compared to the previous generation MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. No doubt it has more features and some important upgrades but it is expensive.
If you have the previous generation MacBook Pro then I think you shouldn’t upgrade to 2016 model otherwise if you want to experience touch bar then go for it. It is awesome! If you are new for MacBook Pro then definitely you shouldn’t purchase this because in this price you will get best laptops with super configurations.
That’s it for this review. I hope you like it.

Good quality sound and decent bass. I loved it! Thanks, JBL.
Physical Structure: I must say the quality of material is much improved with compare to 1st generation. The material of grill and frame is made of metal & plastic and it is very durable & strong. It’s a splash proof and rain resistance but you can’t submerge in water. Weight is 750g.
Buttons: The buttons are soft touch and it made of rubber and it covers with silicon light material. Buttons are clicking and more responsive. On the upper side, 6 buttons are there. The power button, Bluetooth Paring, Volume buttons, Connect/sharing button and speakerphone button.
The best feature is Connect/Sharing button, it allows you to connect another 3 devices to this Bluetooth speaker. But make sure It don’t have JBL Connect feature. There are 5 LEDs showing battery life. Speakerphone audio quality is good.
Additional Features: There are 2 45mm drivers behind metal grill & JBL Passive Bass Radiators on both side. It looks awesome when playing music. It provides better bass.
Ports: There are 3 different ports. 3.5mm audio jack, USB 2.0 for charging the speaker. And last is USB Type C also for charging port and you can charge your smartphone too. It’s awesome.
Battery Performance: It has 6000mA battery. It has very long battery life. The good thing is when your speaker is at 50% low battery then you can charge your smartphone about 100%. Holy Shitt! I think you don’t need power bank If you purchase this!
JBL says 12 hours of battery life on the box. But when I test at 50% volume I got 14 hours of battery life while playing continuous music. When you at full volume you will get around 8-9 hours of battery life while playing continuous music. I really like the battery performance.
Sound Quality: The sound quality is awesome and very loud, clear and distortion free with decent bass. But with compare to other wireless speakers in this budget, I feel the bass is slightly less deep in JBL Charge 2 Plus. Overall sound quality is awesome. You can use for personal entertainment like movies and games.
There is one good feature which makes it better from JBL Flip 3 is the sound is not distorted at a high pitch and high notes. It provides awesome & very clear music quality at maximum volume. So, this thing I most like about it.
So, in my opinion, I really like JBL Charge 2 Plus wireless Bluetooth speaker that is under 100$. Overall this is the best wireless speaker with compare to others in this budget.
The built quality is good and JBL improves the quality of the material. It is splash proof and rain resistance. Buttons are good and JBL provides 2 awesome features like Speakerphone and Connect/Share.
Audio drivers and passive bass radiator provide clear audio quality with decent bass. USB type C port you can use it for charging your smartphone. Long battery life and it provides 14 hours of continuous music play. Sound quality is good, loud, clear and distortion free.
The one thing I like most about it is sound doesn’t distort at high notes. That make it better from JBL Flip 3 wireless Bluetooth speaker. So, If you are looking for wireless speakers in this budget then definitely you shouldn’t ignore it.
That’s it for this review. I hope you like it.
