I guess you forgot to show us which programm/app/method do you use for testing the Bluetooth speed. I would like to test mine and I´m not sure how to do it. Thx in advance.

Business Opportunity in Ruvol I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that I believe is guaranteed to be as challenging and exciting as CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.” It is my hope that one day Ruvol may surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.” The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play. HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED and HOW YOU CAN MONETIZE IT? I detailed everything in my UKposts video. Here is the link: BIG MONEY POTENTIAL IN RUVOL! It is worthwhile to note that the people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. Even just a small percentage of these 800 million is good enough to earn big money from Ruvol either as an ONLINE GAME BUSINESS or as a PHYSICAL PRODUCT DISTRIBUTOR. You may contact me at: Thanks and God bless! RODOLFO MARTIN VITANGCOL The Ruvol Inventor

Gary, Thank you for this relevant information. I have a cat and 3 dogs who need to move outdoor from time to time. Thus to provide security and keep the doors closed during winter doggy-door tech will be employed. I think Bluetooth 5 will allow them to come and go while maintaining a secure id that allows them to enter and bars others from coming in.

Does doubled data speed also meens a delay half as long as in 4.2?

Not really... The data latency is normally set by your connection interval, which can only be as short as 7.5ms in both 4.2 and in 5.

I have serious question, My question is,"If we have 2 different Bluetooth earphones connected to same device and let's say we are playing pubg then will other teammates in my game will be able to hear audio from two Bluetooth earphones?", "What if one is wired and one is Bluetooth earphone?", Considering mic is on in pubg!?!? Please answer my questions! (Obviously i have Bluetooth 5.0 in my phone with Bluetooth 4.1 Bluetooth earphones!)

so let me get this straight, 16 ft we get increase speed...aka more than enough distance to your device. does this mean that possibly we can use our Bluetooth to transmit Mic/Audio without the lost of audio quality?

Very disappointed with the range on my S8 when using my Bluetooth headphones, nowhere near the distance as with my S5. Has Samsung ignored coded mode or is there an issue with their Bluetooth software? I have received an update tonight and Bluetooth connectivity was mentioned in the bug fix list so I'm hoping this will solve it. I won't be able to tell until I'm at work tomorrow as that is where my headphones are. Reading on Samsung's forum there are lots of people complaining about the Bluetooth on the S8, shame as otherwise it's an amazing phone.

RussDurrant 2 things wrong with your assunptions. #1 android doesnt have BT 5.0 support until Android Oreo. #2 your BT headphones are not BT 5.0 capable. To get the full benefits of BT 5.0 you need to have both devices BT 5.0 capable and minimum Android Oreo. THIS IS NOT A SAMSUNG ISSUE!!!!

Bluetooth uses less power than Wi-Fi. Bluetooth has lower throughput than Wi-Fi. From these two points alone you can understand that they are good for different use cases.
Fremet 4 роки тому
Bluetooth is a lot like an old car. It can seem pretty crap at first with all of its quirks but once you get used to "driving it" it's really quite useful...... and I'd argue that wifi is similar in that there's a kind of unspoken "learning curve" Oh well... I use both technologies regularly, just some of my two cents

That's why the revolutionary bit of the whole Bluetooth 5.0 thing sounds like fake news to me. They further adopted the technology to better suit the IoT world but it is no technological breakthrough. All things equal( including bit rate) 5.0 will need to use more power to accommodate for the longer distances. Anyways, great videos, Gary. Keep it up :)
Gary Sims
Gary Sims 4 роки тому
That is why the bit rate is lowered to just 109Kbps for the CODED connection.
Evgeni Enchev

You are right. According to Core Specification, the transmit power remains the same. However, in LE Long Range mode the packets are with 2 to 8 times longer duration. Hence, the transfer of same data is several times more expensive for your battery in Long Range mode.
Gary Sims
Gary Sims 4 роки тому
Errr... Nope. The power usage is the same as BLE 4.2.

One thing puzzling me, what is the point in BT vs just using wifi? Connect 2 devices over wifi you get infinitely faster connection over a much longer distance. So why use BT at all? I assume there is some reason for simply not using wifi or BT wouldn't exist anymore, but I can't think what that is.

Sonos only offer home speakers where power consumption isn't a priority like it is for mobile devices. I use jbl xtreme and charge 3 speakers as my home theater and for the skatepark. If they could have used wifi for said devices without affecting battery life I would be down for it but I suspect they couldn't and why blueooth became the standard with my earbuds and mobile speakers
neowok 4 роки тому
What do you mean how would you use wifi on speakers? Ask Sonos, they have been doing pretty well at it for years! What about a farmers field? you say "send back" send back to where? a farmhouse? why could you not use wifi enabled sensors to send data back to the farmhouse? why would it need a router in the field? The router would sit wherever the data is being sent back to, wifi can go a lot further than BT can, particularly in an open field! Are you saying wifi can't run from a battery? seriously? a mobile phone using wifi alone could last days if not weeks on a single charge using just wifi, a sensor in a field could easily power the sensor and the wifi using a battery and recharge itself using solar.
Gary Sims
Gary Sims 4 роки тому
How would you use Wi-Fi to connect to wireless speakers or to a smartwatch or to a FitBit. What about Beacons?If you have a farmer's field with humidity sensors that send back data about the field conditions does the farmer need to put a Wi-Fi router in the field as well? Bottom line Bluetooth is low power and can run from battery.

Bluetooth 5 is twice faster as Bluetooth 4.2 but, as the range increases transfer speed decreases. However you get a range of 100 Mts+ that's great.
