Do you miss the old style phone handsets? If you do, the Good Call Bluetooth Handset is for you.
Picture this, you have reception in your kitchen, but not in your bedroom, your basement, but not your den, and so on and so on.
The Good Call Bluetooth handset remedies your reception woes forever. Why is this? Well after charging, simply pair it to any Bluetooth enable phone. Then, place your phone in its optimal reception area (preferably with charging capabilities). If you own an iPhone however, the dock automatically charges your phone. After that, talk, talk and talk.
The unit came with a bit of a charge, but after unboxing, the first task was to fully charge it. After about two hours, it was ready for testing.
The testing was done on three devices;
· iPhone 4
· Samsung Galaxy Player 5
· Blackberry Curve
It was tested with the regular calling feature(s), but for the iPhone and Samsung, it was also tested with other apps that include Pinger, Text+, Skype and TextNow.
Aside for charging it for a couple of hours, it truly took less that 2 minutes from pairing it with any of the above devices to make a call
Call clarity was nothing short of WOW. I attribute this to two reasons; the technology of the product itself, but also the fact that your phone (what ever make or model) is in an optimal reception area of your home/office. As tested, I was roughly 45 feet away from the phone and still had excellent clarity and sound.
There was no difference or disturbance in the call clarity no matter what phone I used or what app was making the phone call. I did however notice a difference on WiFi based apps such as Text + Calls, Skype and Pinger. This may be in part to the fact that the charging base was right next to my wireless “N” router and had maximum reception.
It is made for the iPhone as the dock is available for charging and syncing, but don’t let you as an owner of another Bluetooth enabled phone be deterred from purchasing it. It also appears to sync and charge the iPod Touch 4th generation and works well with the same apps stated above.
Also, with the advent of more technically advanced cars, you can take the unit with you to act as a charger and handset, providing you have a USB auxiliary port. Again, it performed well in this atmosphere. (OBEY LOCAL LAWS REGARDING USING A HANDSET WHILE DRIVING. DRIVE RESPONSIBLY)
With constant talking, you should get about 4 hours of talk time. Standby time should get you 4 days on a single charge. With USB ports every where though, this may be a moot point.
This is a must have for any techie. It is cool and high tech but brings you back to those retro years. Learn more at www.goodcallbro.com.
