My primary complaint: I couldn't find my phone, so I tried finding it using my Tile. But my phone had switched to power saving, and had turned off Bluetooth and Location, so Tile was useless. I was able to turn them on via Google, but off course I could then easily make my phone ring via Google too. If Tile added the ability to turn on Bluetooth and Location via the same button press on its devices, then you'd have something. Until then, I don't really see its usefulness. Buyer's Regret!
The pack includes a redesigned slim, which is now in the form factor of a credit card (unlike the original square design). The thickness is slightly reduced and now more compareable to two creditcards stacked. The idea is to place it in your wallet to keep track of that.For larger models that may be an option but the thickness and stiffness of the slim made it uncomfortable for me to actually use in my somewhat minimalistic wallet. However, my back pack didn't have those limitations and is now trackable.
The Essentials don't include the high end sport, but one tile Mate. That is neither waterproof nor as attractive as the sport, but the CR1632 battery is now ... you guessed it ... replaceable! The other improvement is that the tile Mate is now capable to connect to your phone over up to 200 ft (double the original). That's too far for the louder sound to make a differencebut in general use it does help to overcome background noises more effectively. The dual color design with the silver tile button is also more attractive than the drab original (but a far cry from the Sport).
There are two new devices included that are not even listed on the tile website (yet). The tile Sticker is a very different concept from the tile mate. The battery is not replaceable, but it's rated at 3 years. At the same thickness as the Mate, it's round and significantly smaller than the Mate (or especially the even larger Sport). There is no attachment loop as it's meant to be stuck to something with the adhesive backing, as the name "Sticker" may suggest.
New (to me) is also the Premium Service which costs $2.50/month when paying on an annual basis or $2.99/month when going month by month. Included in this service are features like Smart Alerts, extended warranty, location history (30 days), and free battery replacement. The latter only applies to the devices that allow for a replacement, of course, but the Smart Alerts are interesting. It's a type of geofencing that basically determines your location (based on your smartphone) an the location of the included devices. Tile uses a message "It looks like you left home without your 'Keys'" as an example. I won't get far without keys anyway, but there sure are applications where you may benefit from such nanny service. (It's just difficult to make it useful for items you only occasionally need, and not to become annoying the other times.)
Overall, this is a nice collection of different tile devices although it depends on your application if it's worth the investment. I am currently torn and may come back to render a more definitive verdict.

Auch nach meinem Auslandsbesuch findet die TILE App das TILE nicht mehr richtig, die App sagt es wäre in der Nähe und sie würde noch einige Sekunden um sich zu verbinden, verbindet sich aber nicht mehr und somit lässt sich das Tile nicht mehr finden, ich kann es nicht mal auf der Karte sehen obwohl es vor mir auf dem Tisch liegt.
Ich habe das TILE letzte Woche Donnerstag gekauft, eingerichtet und getestet und in mein Portemonnaie gepackt (mehrmals getestet auch danach).
Am Freitag bin ich in den Urlaub geflogen,
Bluetooth Verbindung meines Smartphones war immer aktiv, ebenso Standort (vor und nach dem Flug). Jetzt habe ich mein Portemonnaie im Hotel verlegt (ich habe eine Konstante aktive Datenverbindung im Ausland). Leider Zeigt mir die TILE App mein Portemonnaie wäre noch in Deutschland, das klingt etwas unrealistisch da dort meine Reisedokumente drin sind.
Dazu kommt dass die TILE App zu diesem (relativ Teuren) Produkt nur in der Basisversion vorhanden ist, das bedeutet um das gekaufte Produkt vollumfänglich nutzen zu können müssen wir ein monatliches Abonnement abschließen, davon stand nichts in der Beschreibung.
Abzocke, geht zurück sobald ich wieder zuhause bin.
Always reassuring to see your luggage is loaded onto your aircraft by a quick check on the TILE app. The Rugged TILE is my dogs collar and provides peace of mind. The lack of the ability to replace the battery used to be problematic but now this has been resolved.
The smaller dot TILES are hidden within my briefcase, medic pack and laptop bag. Another is on my car keys
I am going to unpick the stitching on my wallet to insert the credit card shaped TILE into the lining and then re-stitch it to help aid ensuring the tracking device goes undetected if my wallet is stolen.
Cuts down the time to find my car keys/smartphone in the morning rush
So I discovered that smart alerts do not work for me because I always keep my Samsung Galaxy in a battery saving mode. When changed to "High Performance" the alerts started to work. Tile needs to run as background process which battery saving mode restricts. Glad I found but it is a pain since I cannot use the battery saving mode. Getting this function to work made me add a 3rd star to the review.
The smart alerts themselves have days when they keep going off very often (several times on a 2 hour visit to a park) saying I had forgotten all my staff which I did not. This got very annoying. Strangely, it doesn't happen all the time... after that I had several days of no false alerts at all.
Overall I did find it useful on a few occasions but the false alerts, useless map coordinates and frequent "device is out of range" messages when the device is next to me made me return the product. I might try a competitor or wait for the next version that might have those issues solved.
Having said that, many people will find this device useful despite the drawbacks. I just could not justify the price I paid (£90 for 2 packs plus £30 subscription) given the issues. I will come back to the concept in one way or another.
So, I bought 2 packs of tiles: 4 + 2. Also, I bought a regular home key finder with 8 tags.
Cost: Tiles almost £90. Home Key Finder £25.
I must say that I started thinking if it's not just better to use a regular Home Key Finder outside but of course you must carry the controller (it's small but still extra thing) plus the tags are just tiny bit too thick. Tile slim better fits in a wallet or passport.
Then I started to test both systems and the Home Key Finder worked perfectly and swiftly. Tile sometimes works fast but sometimes i see "connecting" message rather too long - annoying when you are in a rush.
Smart alerts are supposed to notify you when you leave Tile behind except that i turned them on and not even once was i notified i left Tile behind. Doesn't work for me.
Last map location is pretty useless too. So I left my wallet with a Tile at home and discovered later I don't have it with me. The last known location was from 2 days before in a park. I wasn't sure if I lost it at this location but it turned out it was just at home. Again, that makes this feature useless for me. Someone answered a question here saying that this is basically the last location I was in contact with another Tile user but that's useless piece of information for me. Tile should know the last time my wallet was at home and show me that location.
Of course, if you do lose an item with a Tile attached another user might pick up it's signal and help you find it. Given my simple tests I'm sceptical.
Do I need to set up some extra permissions on my phone? I dont know.
I have 3 types of Tiles: Mate (like a key ring) for keys and bag, Slim(for wallet and passport) and the Stick one (I put on a bike and second phone). Beware, the stick one can be placed on something only once. I have no idea how useful it will be if I try to remove it. Also, the stick one is definitely not as loud as the other two. Really I just wanted to try it with my 2nd phone as I had 2 stick ones in the pack. It would have been better to get a Slim one.
The jury is still out. I'm considering returning the £90 worth of Tiles and trying another tagging system. I will continue testing but when I see the Home Key Finder for £25 work so much better I have doubts if the Tile technology is mature enough. Unless I'm doing something wrong.
