Will I be able to use the Airpods with other phones?

If it runs on bluetooth - yes, sound will come out but you will be limited with other features like gesture controls, utilize the sensors and the w1 chip because it goes along with iOS10 and Apple products only.

Meeh nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing wow .... For 1/4 of the price you can get an android phone instead
Mang Domeng - September 7, 2016 at 7:26pm
Hahaha! The Note 7 you mean! They are now on sale at 1/4 the price! And there's a new special feature - it explodes!
