    Been off the forum for a bit (nightshift!)

    Had a search but don't see much recent.

    However my UK 6p 64GB has never been great for bluetooth.
    poor range to my 2 headsets so i get c
    ut out on streaming audio if the phone is in my pocket.
    In the car I get patchy connections.
    I listen to web radio via an app (XFM in the UK or Spotify) on Parrot Bluetooth and I seem to have a sporadic issue of the phone 'timing out' every 10-15 minutes where the audio stops. If I unlock the phone via fingerprint the audio restarts for another 10-15 minutes.

    On calls in the car I seem to regularly have an issue where I start a call and after a few seconds the call appears to drop,then my bluetooth disconnects. After a few seconds it reconnects and the call continues. During the cut out the call continues non the phone and people on the other end can hear me via the phones mic.

    My previous HTC One M7 worked with my headsets & Parrot flawlessly. After nearly a year with my 6P,the bluetooth is the only thing that has me looking at replacements.

    Sim Free 64gb 6P
    Android 7.1.2
    Updated March 5,2017.

    Anyone got similar or solutions?

    It really is a damn shame and I wonder if its hardware?
    Really is the only issue I have with the phone.

    Have you turned off battery optimization for the bluetooth share?

    Too bad you already have 7.1.2 since the changelog for that supposedly deals with Bluetooth fixes.

    Thanks. She was a great companion.

    Unfortunately we had to put her down just before Christmas this past year. Right around Thanksgiving she started behaving strangely: constantly pacing, bumping into things, getting 'stuck' in the corner of a room, etc. The vet said those were classic symptoms of Alzheimers (dog dementia). We tried different treatments but nothing seemed to keep it from getting worse. By the time Christmas came around she would no longer eat or drink.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. I have been there and understand your loss. No better dog IMHO.

    She was quite popular with the folks visiting Yosemite last year with her Doggles on.

    Heh heh - I think we've hijacked this thread for more meaningful discussion.

    Sorry,missed these replies (Dont mind dog based chat either )

    I'll give it a try.

    I am pretty much done with the 6P,purely on Bluetooth issues.
    When the phone is connected to the car BT set up,it cuts the radio off whilst navigating apps etc.
    Using it for calls is now pretty much pointless (kinda the original purpose of a phone!)
    Now when I dial a call the bluetooth will disconnect from the 6p whilst dialling and then reconnect a few seconds later.
    It will drop the connection in calls as well,before reconnecting. I mainly take work calls on the move,so not very professional.
    Trialled my old trusty HTC One M7 and it still works flawlessly with the in car Bluetooth.

    I have seen the Pixal has Bluetooth issues too by some posts/sites.
