You may have noticed the photo of Mark on our Twitter feed last week using the new HTC One M8.
It was the first time he had been able to try the phone is a super fast 4G Mobile area. We ran some www.speedtest.net trials on were getting up to 38Mbps – which is amazing when you consider some offices still have a traditional broadband speed of around 2Mbps.
With the 3CX Mobile App installed and ready to go we called the office to brag about our ‘Research and Development day’ 😉 at the gadget show. As expected the call quality over 4G was perfect.
As 4G continues to be rolled out (We use EE for out mobiles phones, you can check coverage here) in to more and more areas having your office phone extension with you on your mobile phone is going to be seemless thanks to the speed of 4G and the power of 3CX Phone for iPhone and Android.
“We are excited to announce the release of the latest 3CXPhone for Android client which now offers Bluetooth support, allowing you to connect Bluetooth headsets, hands free kits and make / receive office calls whilst on the go in cars that support Bluetooth connections.”
“Battery life has been improved by tweaking the power consumption, meaning you can now stay connected for longer You’re now also alerted when you’ve missed a call or have received any instant messages”
New Features in V12.0.50
- Fixed issue causing power consumption – Now the application consumes less CPU and Battery power.
- Dialed number was not cleared after a failed call.
- Fixed echo issue on Nexus 4.
- Fixed bug where some global settings were restored to default after provisioning attempt.
