    Absolute Garbage

    Speaker won’t even stay connected to my iPad. It disconnected every few minutes from Bluetooth. When I checked battery after unplugging it showed 80 percent after 2 minutes also. What kind of garbage battery goes from 100 percent to 80 percent in under 5 minutes! On my Android it stayed connected but when I played it over night it died in under 5 hours. Far from the 12 hours of battery as advertised. Google reviews and iPad reviews show terrible as well. I will be returning this speaker.

    If I could rate this 0 stars I would. I previously purchased a UE boom bluetooth speaker that worked flawlessly that was easy and simple to pair with my smartphone. The UE Blast is a crappy speaker. I tried multiple times to pair with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and I could never pair them together even though they were on the table right next to eachother. To make matters worse when I tried to return the speaker to Best Buy for a refund they told me that I needed to go through the manufacturer. All around bad experience with Beat Buy & Logitech

    Don’t waste your fine with this. I fully charged mine up and within 20 minutes the battery went from full to 60%. It also wouldn’t stay connected to my iPad 6th Generation. It kept disconnecting and wouldn’t stay connected. There are much better speakers than this.

    I am an engineer and very familiar with electronics, technology, etc. Setup is a nightmare. Mine won't connect to WIFI. Instructions are horrendous. Factory resetting the device is almost impossible. Online support? Good luck with that. Can't wait to return it!

    I bought two of these and both did the same thing. When you say something to Alexa she would start talking and her voice would start skipping. Then it would close out of a game or something right in the middle of it. Very poor quality.

    Alexa function is very unreliable speaker works sporadically barely usable very dissatisfying experience. App has many negative reviews which was consistent with the speakers performance! .

    Loses wifi connection and now will not turn on, have to wait for label and then ship back , then wait for them to determine what is wrong, then find out if they will ship one to me that will work.

    My speaker wouldn’t connect to more than one phone. Once it was connected it wouldn’t play a full song with out disconnecting.

    It never would take a Charge and it did not work. Maybe. Manufacturing issue?
