Review: Tile (Gen 2) – Phone & Key Finder

Tile (Gen 2)

Tile is the ideal solution for the days when your phone or keys seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth. Tile is a small, Bluetooth tracker. The app is simple to use and can locate any item, including your phone, keys or even your wallet in just a few seconds. Now you can spend less time looking for misplaced items and get to the task at hand faster.

Tile is a white and square-shaped gadget that will help you find virtually anything you are looking for. The original Tile was only available for iOS; however, the second-generation offering also works with Android devices. It also has a few additional features that boost its overall usefulness.

Top Features

The actual Tile device is made of lightweight plastic that measures just 1.45 by 1.45 by .24 inches and weighs just one-third of an ounce. A small keychain hole is located in the left, upper corner and the Tile logo is on the front surface. The “e” in the Tile is actually a hidden button that allows you to pair it with the phone of your choice. It will work with any Bluetooth 4.0 devices that run Android 4.4 or above and iOS 7 or above.

Some of the most notable features of the Tile (Gen 2) device include the following:

  • The small Bluetooth tracker is simple to use.
  • Ability to use as a phone or key finder, or anything else you don’t want to lose track of.
  • Simply attach the device to any item and sound it by using the app on your phone.
  • Press the Tile to make the lost phone ring – even when it is on silent.
  • Benefit from a Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet.
  • Easily hear the tone or ring thanks to the 90-decibel tune, which is three times louder than the first generation Tile.
  • Water-resistant design allows you to use it in the rain or another wet environment – just don’t go swimming with it.
  • Easily connect up to 8 Tiles to a single account.

What’s Unique About the Tile (Gen 2)

One of the most appealing factors is the fact you don’t have to worry about replacing the battery or charging it for up to a year. This is a hassle free experience for up to 12 months, which means you don’t have to worry about losing your necessary items again.

Potential Drawbacks

While the Tile (Gen2) has a smart and sleek design, there is still a few drawbacks that you should be aware of. One is the fact that the battery is not able to be removed. This means once it wears out, you will have to replace the entire device. Also, while you can attach the Tile to many objects, it is specifically designed for keyrings and you may find it difficult to attach to other items. If you are out of range of the Bluetooth reach, the Tile will not work, as well.

Conclusion

The non-removable battery of the Tile will work for a year, according to the manufacturers. When it is getting low, you will be sent a reminder. At this point, you can reorder a new Tile.

While it does not offer notifications like some of the other devices available, it only costs half the price. The Tile will also remain connected to the phone you choose allowing you to easily find any device you connect it to. This makes it more than worth the low price you pay.
