Should I use Bluetooth all the time?
Essentially, keeping Bluetooth enabled on your phone at all times opens you up to potential hacks, abuse, and privacy violations. The solution is simple: Don’t use it. Or, if you must, make sure to turn it off as soon as you’ve unpaired from the device in question.
Does Bluetooth use minutes?
While checking battery usage, you’ll most likely find that Bluetooth is barely using up any of your phone’s power. So, to sum it all up: Streaming media with Bluetooth might have a small effect on your phone’s battery, but just leaving Bluetooth running for background devices barely uses any battery at all.
How expensive is Bluetooth technology?
A typical Bluetooth transceiver integrated circuit (IC) costs roughly $1, compared to $5-$7 for a Wi-Fi IC.
