Anker’s Sound-Core Mini 2 fulfills the functionalities and user experiences with its wide array of technological enhancements.
• Pairing process is flawless; can be paired easily across all Bluetooth capable devices.
• Answering calls via speaker is a huge benefit; however, the phone should be within close proximity to allow for better/ strong connection
• Support for AUX jack is a plus
• IPX7 Waterproof, I have yet to dare throwing this into my pool. But a piece of mind if I were to drop it in.
• Rubberized bottom allow for non-slip and secure
• Battery Life is amazing (while I haven’t confirmed its 15 hours, I can promise that it does not fall short of 12 hours)
• With the price set at $34, performance is comparable against other devices within this price range.
To be desired-
• Connection range can be muffled when separated by a wall.
• Mic function will work ONLY if phone is placed within 10ft (with no wall or barriers)
• Connection will cause a half second lag when playing i.e. YouTube videos on iPhone and Android.
Purchasing price of $34 does justify the # of functions and quality you are getting; after all, when you purchase an Anker product, you are backed up by Anker’s excellent customer service and warranty. And I look forward to bringing this to my camping trip.
