After 1 month of use of these highly anticipated earbuds, there are some little things that kinda ruin the experience.
Here is what I think can be done to fix that:
When taking the buds out of the box, the app on the phone should have a popup (optional to disable this) asking you which device/s you want to connect to.
Similar to point one above, on the main screen, at the top or near the to we should have quick access to the device list. Currently I have to scroll to the bottom > click on settings > click on device list.
But this is something that when I need it, I need it fast. Even with multipoint, sometimes I need to connect to a different device and it would be ideal to have access to this setting without so many clicks.
When on multipoint and I get a call, the device I am watching a video on or listening to music doesn’t auto pause. So once I finish the call on my phone and go back to my computer or tablet, I need to scroll back and find where I left off. Also if I move away from the computer and lose connection, then the sound starts coming out via the computers speakers and if auto pause was a feature, then this wouldn’t be an issue.
Touch controls - I think touch is too sensitive. It should only activate if you tap harder than simply touch. I activate controls simply by taking the bud out my ear or brushing against it if I am adjusting my glasses.
If the hardware doesn’t support registering the difference between touch and a harder tap, then there should be an option to do something like a quick double tap activates the touch controls for 3 seconds.
Double tap > then long press, one tap, 2 tap, 3 tap. Or something like that. I know that Anker might think this is too complicated for some users, but I am telling you, the touch controls are sooo sensitive that the current situation is worse. Something like my suggestion could be an option in the settings (only activate touch controls after a double tap) a checkbox with a disclaimer like that or something.
Nice to have:
5. As the buds don’t always charge when in the box, I think it would be good for the lights to flash on the outside of the box a few times when you close the box and it starts charging both earbuds. So if you don’t notice the flashing, then you know something is wrong with the way the buds connected inside. I know there are lights in the box, but I can’t always see the light through the eartips and it is something I really need to spend time making sure the buds are in the box. This is a BAD experience. I never know if my buds are charging or not. I need to double check and make sure I see that little light inside the box is on.
