Buetooth handsfree calls on PinPhone
#7
Handsfree kits are only a thing if you own a car. There is not really a usable hands-free kit for my bicycle. (If I really need to take or make a phone call, I just move out of traffic and stop the bicycle.) Technically, I suppose I could use one of those handlebar smartphone holders (intended for navigation app use) together with a headset-type hands-free kit, but does that really not constitute a distraction (both legally and practically)? Plus, it bears the danger of breaking the PinePhone if anything causes the bicycle to fall. I am not convinced it is an improvement over just stopping for phone calls.

So you should not assume that handsfree kit usage is an essential feature for all "daily-driving" PinePhone users (at least unless you take "driving" too literally).
