Thread: Android Samsung Galaxy 3 vs Iphone for Resound 761s

  1. Default Android Samsung Galaxy 3 vs Iphone for Resound 761s

    My phone is a Galaxy 3 and is not compatible with the APPs I dont want to change phone services, I like mine. But could I buy a cheap i phone with NO phone service and use it with the HAs?

    You would not be able to have phone calls streamed to your HAs. I don't think any iPhone is "cheap" if you only intend to use it as a hearing aid remote for the app. And you would have to carry two phones everywhere. Sounds impractical to me. Of course if your iPhone used the same Sim size as your current phone then you might be able to switch to just the iPhone if you found two became too inconvenient to carry around. Who knows - maybe you might decide you prefer the iPhone. Stranger things have happened.

    Little unclear of what you want to accomplish. If you want something you can use as a remote for your hearing aids, you can pick any compatible http://www.resound.com/en-US/compatibility smart phone (Android or Apple) or other Apple device. As mentioned earlier, you'd need to carry both your old phone (for calls) and your new device. If you're wanting to use an Apple Phone for streaming calls, I'd talk to your phone carrier and see what possibilities are to change your phone to a compatible Apple phone. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

    Well, you can get a reasonably cheap iPhone on ebay. The lowest grade model that will work is an iPhone 5. Should find one for a hundred and change. If you get the right one, you can even have your carrier switch you to it. There are two versions used in the US. Ask your carrier which one they are. There is an app on the Android store that will transfer your data to it.

    Personally I'd never give up my Android phone for Apple but that's another discussion. Yes there are advantages when it comes to hearing aids but I really dislike Apple products in general so I'll suffer...

    ME THREE!!!!! Apple is the new Microsoft. Back doors on their phones, proprietary apps. They are Big Bro painted in rainbow colors on an apple to lull us into a sense of security. I'm sticking with my Samsung Galaxy S6 Global. (And hope to *never* need any phone-based app to stream my personal calls into my aids.)

    The Apple logo has not been multicolored for well over a decade. And my iPhone has never exploded! I love Apple products because they work! I would never buy android. They are all a compromise because one company designs the hardware and another company designs the software and those two companies do not co-ordinate because the hardware comes from lots of different companies. All unnecessarily messy.

    LOL!! I truly live in a cave. I don't even know what the Apple logo looks like anymore. Yes, you are right that the Apple family of products DO work pretty seamlessly together, but I just object to it being such a "closed" system, where they want to control the apps, books & music available to their product family users. Also, the company seems to make sub-optimal decisions as to what lines of product they will support (or continue making) as well as the basic hardware functionality of things like laptops, where they remove ports and CD drives without warning.

    Yes, it was shocking that the Galaxy Note 7 with rechargeable lithium ion batteries turned out to be a fire hazard. Um, isn't that what Phonak has in their rechargeable aids? Hopefully using smaller batteries that won't go BOOM in the night.

    Yes, the trend for rechargable batteries in HAs is not something I favour either. Although poor design/quality control contributes to the risks because most mobile phones have Lithium ion batteries but usually don't catch fire if you use the manufacturer's charger. Some other brands have especially if used with cheap chargers. Hopefully that won't be a problem for hearing aids.

    Actually the Apple closed garden is what I like about Apple. Don't get me wrong - they are not perfect but a whole lot better than the alternatives. I have a five year old Apple MacBook Pro with a CD/DVD SuperDrive and the drive has never been used. All software is downloaded over the net and all my content. Apple still make a separate SuperDrive in case you ever want to access an old CD/DVD or burn one but I don't know anyone who still does that. USB drives have taken over for carrying files around and all the rest is done over the net or in the cloud. Apple tends to be the first to remove ports or drives but everyone else then plays catch up a couple of years later when they realize that those things just aren't needed anymore. If you enjoy doing things the way you do or fiddling with making things work together from different manufacturers then that is fine for you. Personally, I just want it to work out of the box without my needing to do another degree at night to make it work. To me computers and phones are just tools. They need to be easy to use and intuitive.

    Of course I am biased - I have been an Apple user since the early days of the Mac when using one involved being a bit of a rebel. Actually most of the time we didn't admit to it because we knew the long discussion to convince us of our errant ways would ensue. If you have not seen an Apple logo for that long then maybe you should go into the next Apple Store you see and just have a play. It won't change your mind but you might understand what we see in them.
