I am using the Anker powerconf S3 running firmware version 29.12 now for some time and I find the following issues which make the usage nearly impossible:
For the iphone to autoconnect via bluetooth the anker powerconf S3 needs to be turned off and on again. Otherwise if I leave it on and leave the bluetooth zone with my phone and then come back it will not autoconnect again. This means: Everytime I leave my desk with my phone and then return I need to remember to turn the powerconf off and on again. Besides the fact that this alone is annoying it is even more annyoing when you have to press those buttons for 3 Seconds each each time. Is there any way to get the Will we soon get a firmware update to autoconnect via bluetooth when someone returns to his desk? Or at least a way to just press on the Bluetooth button once shortly and by that have the same behavior as if I would turn the Anker powerconf S3 off and on again?
I baught the anker powerconf S3 because if I just go in speaker mode on the iphone the audio quality is too week. But after the switch people I talk to via my iphone connected to the anker powerconf S3 via bluetooth say it has gotten worse. Mainly because the volume is too low. So I started to search for microphone settings. In the app called soundcore there is only a representation of the voulme settings from the speakers of the anker powerconf S3, but not for the microphone. Now some say I should connect the anker powerconf S3 with my computer and there I would get some audio settings for the device in the hidden sound settings for audio devices. As I tried this I discovered that the anker powerconf S3 doesn´t even appear as a USB device with Sound settings. It does not appear at all when connected with the USB cable. Either connected to a USB 3 or USB2 port. It does not get recognized by the computer running under Windows 10. So my Questions are: How can i get the anker powerconf S3 to be recognized as a USB Audio device ? 2) Where can I set the microphone volume for the use case iphone -> Bluetooth -> anker powerconf S3 ?
Some youtube videos about the anker powerconf S3 give the impression that one can use a USB cable to connect to the iphone to have a better audio quality. This sounds completly reasonable to me so I thought they were probably saying the truth. Unfortunatly the USB to phone connection is only for charging. So my Question here is: Why is that the case? Will we soon get a firmware update, where this phone to anker powerconf S3 audio connection via USB will be possible?
Just a tiny feature request: Would it be possible to use the LEDs as a volume scale between mute and 100% volume while tapping on + and - on the Anker powerconf S3?
