Just received my SoundCore Boost Bluetooth Speaker and love it (review coming soon). It paired via bluetooth just fine and I have smart connect setup so it connects whenever I'm in range and the speaker is active.
I never could figure out how to connect via NFC (read forum post on it). I know NFC is limited range and if you aren't on the sweet spot it won't work. I'm using an old LG G4 with NFC (middle of the battery plate I think) and I set the phone on the speaker with NFC on but it won't connect. Could there be an issue if I have plastic and rubber case. Is it thick enough to block the signal?
Also what are the benefits of using NFC if I can smart connect via Bluetooth?
