    Definitely Windows phone. Those legacy devices you mentioned don't do so well.

    My Samsung Galaxy S4 works flawlessly with CUE. I especially like how well Pandora works. Voice calling (dialing) also works great.

    Legacy devices? You got to be kidding? Windows is older than iphone or android.

    From what I'm reading, Android's Bluetooth support has some issues that recent iphone or Windows phones don't. That goes beyond just CUE to things like Smart Home device compatibility.

    You are probably thinking of Windows Mobile. Windows Phone is newer than Android and iPhone and it shows.

    There is evidence that Google is working at catching up on full Bluetooth support and is serious about it (see recent acquisition of Nest and inclusion of one mode of Bluetooth LE in KitKat 4.3 api18). It might come down to how committed you are to Android devices, how recent yours is, how confident you are it will get new OS upgrades, and your own level of patience in waiting for such things. Also, how hard you need to push your Android device with CUE.

    I have one, but I'm not the power user with it that others are so far as my needs to make it do stuff with CUE beyond a call once in awhile.

    Nor is it helpful to the discussion or the OP.

    I use an iPhone 5, I can make calls, play music on my phone, and play Pandora. Sometimes I can get directions from my contact list but often it doesn't seem to like the address formatting; I haven't figured out what it doesn't like about some entries. So it works but hardly great.

    I choose Apple products because of their excellent integration with each other, innovation, and great App support. That my ATS isn't a willing participant is disappointing, but I'm more likely to dump Cadillac than Apple (even though my father's owned three Caddys, and this is my second).

    Darn, I did it again. I forgot how much flack I got for suggesting an alternative in the "Which was the best Cadillac of all time: Catera or Cimarron?" thread.

    Hoosier, yer killin me here.

    From the FWIW department, I don't have any issues that I've noticed with my HTC One running Android KitKat. But then again, I don't mess with my phone much in the car nor make many calls, nor navigate from my contacts.

    I can't get my Nexus 5 to link with CUE... Anyone else have these types of problem with Android?

    Power: symptoms? Do you or a family member have another Android phone you can try? If so, does it connect OK?

    Wife and I both have Android. You have to tell the phone to search for Bluetooth then tell it to connect to "Cadillac". Then you have to watch out for a notification on the phone asking for permission to download contacts. Tell that message to go ahead and "always", and it should be okay.

    I think there's a youtube video that shows the process for an Android with CUE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhqOkQKRukw

    Sorry, you're response was a friendly dig, I overreacted.
