BT 5 (i am almost sure 5.1 will be released. You will use 5.0 then. Whether or not i am right, this is not the topic we are discussing about) To be honest, you wrote many WAFFLES here. BT 5 is currently a must-have feature due to several reasons; Bluetooth 5 provides the high speed in terms of the speed between packets. In reality, the speed is in terms of link speed. Historically, BLE was capped at a 1-Mb/s data rate; that’s doubled to 2 Mb/s with Bluetooth 5. This means low latency, while watching a movie. Moreover a Bluetooth 5 radio at 2 Mb/s will see a big advantage in application throughput when placed the same distance apart. This means you can hear clearly what you are on at longer range. Many people here complain about temporary loss of connection and clarity, while their phone are placed into back-pocket. This will kill such an unacceptable situation. I got Iphone X with BT 5. Of course, i would like to invest in not crappy tech but future. anyway, my question is still there, is there anyone here who can say the Gets`s connecting range (ft) with/without any obstacle?
