Jelly Comb foldable Bluetooth keyboard with built-in track pad. Pros: Nearly full size (about one "Enter" key narrower than full-size); Good tactile feel; No missing buttons/functions. Keys and trackpad worked out-of-the-box on Samsung G7 Nougat 7.1. LEDs don't blink periodically when on, so you can't tell if you left it on, however, it seems to idle in a low-power mode so the built-in rechargeable battery does not run all the way down quickly when you forget. Fairly ruggedly built, all-metal case, magnetic closure.
Cons: No positive hold-open mechanism, so it needs to be used on a flat surface. Power LEDs don't blink periodically, so you need to look at the On/Off switch to see if it's on. Other: Charges using Mini-USB cable. I wish the track pad were located at upper right rather than lower right, so I hit it less often accidentally. So far, I love it!

I bought this keyboard because I was fascinated by the idea of being able to have both a trackpad and a keyboard in one for use with my android phablet. So far it's working great for that purpose. The touchpad is multitouch, and doesn't take long for someone to get the hang ouf it. The keyboard itself folds and unfolds with ease, and connected to my phone without problems. It has little feet at the bottom that allows it to easily stay in place when on a flat surface (such as a table). I've been using this keyboard for a few days know and the battery is still going strong. The finish itself feels and looks premium, with just the right amount of weight to make it hardly noticeable in the pocket. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase, as it has helped my write alot faster on my android phone.

Just got this keyboard out of the box! Folds up nice and small and was really easy to pair to my ipad. My only complaint is that the trackpad is not compatible with ios devices. I reccommend buying a stylus as well if you are planning on using this with an ipad or apple device. Other than that, I was pleasantly surpised with the keyboard, the keys are small but nicely placed and easy to type with (if you like flat keyboards like I do--much like a macbook keyboard)

I have not had a lot of success with Bluetooth headphones. This one is great! It connects to the device quickly. The keys respond perfectly and it feels bigger than other foldable keyboards I have tried. The touchpad on the side is in the right place for me. I have a tendency to hit track pads with my thumb and cause myself all sorts of problems. I do not do this with the track pad on the side. I have used it with my Android tablet and phone and it works great.
The first keyboard would not charge. I contacted Jelly Comb and they asked me to try two or three things to resolve the issue. They sent me a replacement when these didn't work. Thanks for a great job.

The Jelly Comb pocket size foldable keyboard works just fine but the keys are tiny and if you don’t press hard enough on the keys, you will have to keep re-typing words. If you have large hands/fingers, you might end up clicking 2 keys at once. You can’t type too fast or you’ll miss keystrokes. However, for the price and convenience, it’s a great little companion to your phone or tablet. I have used it on my iPhone 8 Plus and keeps the sync to bluetooth without glitches. As noted in the description, the touchpad doesn’t work with iOS, but that’s a crazy Apple issue and not related to this item. The instruction booklet is very small so it might be hard for some folks to read the keyboard guide without a glass. I still can’t figure out where the delete key is. I also hooked this up to my Samsung smart TV via bluetooth and logged onto the Internet (IE) and Netflix and it works just fine and the touchpad works, too. I wouldn’t use this as an everyday keyboard but it’s a cool little addition to your collection of geek paraphernalia! :)

I bought this keyboard to use with my Galaxy Tab s3 and it works like a charm. The BT pairing is very straight forward. The battery lift is decent. I used the keyboard on and off for about 2 hours (mostly the mouse pad) and my tablet said the battery level of the keyboard was at 10%. It does take a bit of getting used to. Especially because, as many other reviews have said, this is not touch typing friendly. The fold line on the left offsets the “F” key and the “F”, “T” and “V” keys are smaller in size.
I do not see this keyboard as a permanent replacement for a traditional keyboard by any stretch of the imagination. But for someone who does not like typing on the onscreen keyboard on a tablet, this is the BEST solution out there to use as an “on-the-go” device.
I personally bought this to use while travelling when I don’t want to haul my bulky laptop in my backpack. My trusty tablet gets the job done when all I need is to edit/create documents, spreadsheets and presentations and to reply emails and browse on my tablet.
- Easy to setup.
- Compact. Does not need a lot of space
- Pretty well built with all metal body and hinges. Data cable is tucked in very well and I don’t see it being damaged unless the keyboard is handled very rough.
- The keyboard charges very fast and you can use it while charging. (I use an external power bank)
- It has scissor keys just like traditional keyboards. So pressing the keys feels like typing on a regular keyboard.
- It uses multi-finger gestures. Scrolling though pages on apps is easy (takes a bit of getting used to)
- The battery life could be better
- Not touch typing friendly. Typing needs some getting used to.

I purchased this keyboard to use with a Galaxy Tab A tablet so that I could use the tablet for quick note-taking. The keyboard appears well built, charges quickly and paired easily with my tablet. The keyboard is small, but that is not a downgrade--I purchased this for portability and it certainly is. When I first paired the keyboard, there was a terrible lag between key strokes and letters appearing on screen. I contacted the company, and they responded quickly. I hit a Fn-Android key combination on the keyboard and the lag disappeared (this is not documented in the instructions). It is now perfectly responsive and is perfect for my needs. Would definitely buy again.

I am writing this review with this keyboard. It found my computer, paired, added the software and was up and running in less then 60sec. I am running windows 7. I did have some questions prior to purchasing this and found customer service to be among the best, they too rate 5 stars, Thanks Cassie for all your help. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a full service keyboard with attached mouse that has limited space in the carrying case or is mobile. typing on this was very comfortable
