This is definitely a problem.
While I love my AirPods overall (in terms of convenience), they + iPhone 6s + Apple Watch + WiFi (sometimes) show 3 problems for me:
- AirPods disconnect from phone calls.
- AirPods disconnect from playing the Music or Podcasts app (and thus pause the playback)
- AirPods have frequently gaps/skips/blips in music playback
I'm not badmouthing AirPods; I love the vision and the convenience. But we also need to be honest and transparent about the shortcomings of v1 so that Apple engineers can continue improving them.
A friend had to replace a Samsung Note 7 and considered Pixel Phone since it came out around the time of the Note 7 recall.
He did not buy the Pixel Phone: "No waterproofing, whereas I can get that with other phones."
I don't see Pixel Phone surviving any more than the recently cancelled Chromebook Pixel.
