Re Flare speakers
Trying to connect my new phone to speakers. Absolutely no luck. Why is it this difficult? It should be easy & straightforward but no.
Phone BT (Bluetooth) enabled
Pressed the BT button on speaker once. Flashing. Nothing. No connection. Zip.
Tried manual scan with BT on phone. Nothing.
Press & hold BT button on speaker, fast double flashing. Nothing.
Tried manual scan with BT on phone. Still nothing.
Tried using Soundcore app to connect. Nothing.
Tried connecting manually with Soundcore app. And still… Nothing.
It shouldn’t matter if they were previously connected to another phone. Either the speakers should connect to multiple devices, or if they can only connect to 1 device, they should overwrite the connection data.
I have visual & mobility issues & certainly, judging by the lack of progress so far, won’t be recommending Anker/Soundcore to the groups/forums that I attend/ curate. It’s a shame, as I was really impressed at first. How time changes things.
Updated review coming: great sound, lousy UI & connection, Support lacking (let’s see if today is any better than last time). Restore my faith, please.
