I'd choose the Flare and test it with my wife.
I'd test out the Hip Hop and Club/Dance music that I prefer and the Gospel / R&B that she prefers. I'm Android. She's Apple, so we would be able to test out both versions of the app. She also prefers music on the softer side. I prefer it loud. So we can test the sound at different levels. She has Apple Music. I use it as well as Spotify and Amazon.
I plan on using it in the bedroom, kitchen, and outside while i'm doing work.
We have 3 kids. 6, 12, and 13. The 6 year old loves music. I'm curious to try the flare in dim light to see how entertaining that might be for them.
I would post pics and video on Facebook, Instagram along with a short review. I've been telling my friends for a long time that Anker makes great stuff!
