Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016WiFi direct is much faster that makes transferring files useless via BTagreed at that. but some devices such as amplifiers do not have WiFi Direct. so you're right and you're wrong simultaneously.

(I use it myself. and it's SERIOUSLY helpful) or even transfer songs from android to android. when the other device lacks NFC.

bluetooth is dead, wi-fi is much more faster, 10 - 100 times the range and you can connect from 10-1000 phones, tablets, pcs, game consoles, etc. bluetooth is dead.
divis200, 08 Jun 2016Oh wow 4x speeds... It will still take minutes to transfer a 50mb file...And your point Mr. Innovator? It's so easy criticizing something even if you've contributed absolutely nothing.
Still only WiFi file sharing via share it is faster than bluetooth. Bluetooth cannot be used for file sharing.
Bluetooth will become again useful when they reach 300m, 500m, 1km, 5km or more transmission range. It would be great for meeting people locally in that range. Just think about so many applications, features it could enable. It could be top technology in any smartphone. I hope they develop 1km or more range bluetooth.
wow.. heard about bluetooth next version after long time.. excited for it..
That's a good thing to hear. I'm currently using note 4 paired with samsung gear circle earphones and I'm already impressed with range which seems to be more than 10m. Quality however isn't the best and it goes down as you move away from the phone.
divis200, 08 Jun 2016Oh wow 4x speeds... It will still take minutes to transfer a 50mb file...4x speed for low energy...
The focus is on giving more possibilities for low energy devices instead of just heart rate monitors for example, making A2DP Bluetooth headsets using the Low Energy mode.
The HS mode goes via WLAN link anyway
Oh wow 4x speeds... It will still take minutes to transfer a 50mb file...
Connection between smartphone & car audio system with Bluetooth just for audio files, if play videos (fr smartphone) files by Bluetooth on car audio system screen yes awesome new version Bluetooth now available, if no! So not difference between 4.1/4.2 & 5.0 version.
Bluetooth has its importance due to low power consumption, the LE takes it to a different level. I think Bluetooth will play a major role for Internet of things.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016WiFi direct is much faster that makes transferring files useless via BTTransferring files, agreed. But WiFi is extremely power hungry.
I think this new standard will be great for high-quality audio for wireless headphones and speakers.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016WiFi direct is much faster that makes transferring files useless via BTwifi may be faster but there are some devices that work on bluetooth(speakers, and headphones for example) that can be kept turned on for a long time, i have a stereo bt headset that can play for 8 hours or stay in standby for 24...thats not possible with wifi..true a cellphone will be able to withstand that amount of powerdraw...
anyway this can potentially give apple's walkietalkie software a run for its money
