What we have here now is an AB Bluetooth remote shutter (ASHUTB Bluetooth Remote Shutter). And we hope we can provide you as much information you need to know about this another cool gadget with our review. For those who are fond of taking their own photos with their own Android or iOS smartphones – also known as “selfie” – then you’re going to love this one too. The AB Bluetooth remote shutter is one of the 2 popular wireless remote controllers which enables you to take your own picture, far from your own device. You may not know it yet but I see more and more people getting their own Bluetooth remote shutter and I only know 2 of these kinds so far – IPEGA Bluetooth remote shutter and the other one is this AB Bluetooth remote shutter. In most cases, you will notice people have this in family gatherings, reunions with friends, malls, streets, and some were using it for fun. They seem to enjoy taking their picture in a much farther view rather than extending your arm trying to ensure that all of you fits in that small frame. 🙂
My friend, asked me to check out his AB Bluetooth remote shutter (ASHUTB Bluetooth Remote Shutter) – and so I did. I took the liberty to unbox the new wireless remote controller and inspect almost everything after I unboxing the device. I did a couple of tests too with my iPhone if it works.
If you are planning to get yourself this type of Bluetooth remote shutter then it will cost you at around PhP 500.00 – PhP 550.00 a piece. It’s much cheaper than the IPEGA Bluetooth remote shutter. And to give you more ideas about this product, I will try to provide you at least a decent review and what to expect or not with ASHUTB – AB Bluetooth remote shutter for Android and iOS.

Downsides of ASHUTB Bluetooth Remote Shutter
The only downside I see about ASHUTB AB Bluetooth remote shutter 3 is that CR2032 battery. Unlike its competitor, this device does not sport a rechargeable Lithium battery. So you better use it wisely or stock a handful of CR2032 battery in your kit so that whenever you need it you will always have a spare.
The Good thing of ASHUTB Bluetooth Remote Shutter
Well, unlike the other Bluetooth remote shutter if the stock camera won’t work with ASHUTB AB Bluetooth remote shutter 3 the first time, you will just need a third-party app. Just download the latest Camera 360 and use that to take your selife shots. 🙂
