OnePlus 5 review
Sorry if this should be in the Mobile World Forum but judging by the dates of postings in there hardly anyone ever looks at it!
I was just wondering if anyone else feels as let down by the Iphone as I do regarding the bluetooth capabilities or rather the lack of them.
I have had my Tomtom connected to my last two phones for the traffic updates for the last couple of years and very well it has worked too. However, I recently got an Iphone and whereas most of the features are simply first class and it is more of a mini computer but with telephone facilities included, the bluetooth is simply rubbish.
Yes I should have checked first but as I replied to someone on an Iphone forum who abruptly said that to me, I don't confirm with the garage that my new car will have a fuel tank, you just assume that it will. Not only is the facility to connect to a TomTom disabled but you cannot bluetooth a picture or mp3 to another phone. Also I have tried 3 different bluetooth earpieces for phone conversations and on each one the other party has said that they cannot hear me clearly enough to carry on the conversation. Due to a hardware problem with the phone (not connected) and subsequently getting the phone replaced, I have tried all this on two different Iphones.
Why why why have Apple spoilt a very very good phone by crippling bluetooth. To me this is a basic requirement and on this particular feature the phone is several steps back from Nokias, etc.
Anyone else with an Iphone feel as aggrieved as me?
"Admittedly the Bluetooth is poor but that has been very well documented for a long time"
I didnt know that! To be honest I didnt research the bluetooth capabilities I just assumed that it would do what I needed like my other phones have.
I haven't tried connecting to use as a handsfree but yes that was an option that came up when I tried to connect to the traffic. Is it loud and clear, can you hear the other person above the road noise and can they hear you ok?
The TT 930 has a good microphone and OK built in speaker so conversations are usually more than acceptable. Much better than the TT 910 I had before.
Mine is the 730 but I will try it. Thanks
