Anyone own both the Brydge and Smart Keyboard?
Hey everyone. I own an iPad Pro 10.5’’ alongside with the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.
I got really frustrated with my Smart Keyboard crapping out sometimes and just not connecting, leading me to have to reseat it for sometimes a few minutes until it finally worked. That was defeating the purpose of the practical, “built in” keyboard.
Being excited with iPad OS coming, I purchased an open box but never used Brydge keyboard Version II for my iPad Pro.
The thing is, after the purchase, I discovered a video on a trick on how to get the Smart Keyboard to quickly work again. (Basically, taking it on or off wouldn’t solve it, but nudging it from side to side works 100% of the time so far, in just one or two seconds).
So now I’m in doubt about my Brydge keyboard purchase. It has not been shipped yet. It was pretty inexpensive (around $60 when converting from my local currency), but I’m afraid it could be a bit useless if I can now use my Smart Keyboard more reliably. I could cancel my purchase (at the risk of not finding it again later, since its the only one listed for sale on my country), or wait until it arrives, test it for a while, make my decision and try to see if I can resell it later (if I decide to not keep it)
Would it make sense to keep this keyboard for situations where a solid hinge would be useful? (Lap typing and bed typing, watching movies on trips where the non-vari angle aspect of the Smart Keyboard pisses me off, etc).
Interested in hearing some opinions from you guys to see if anyone goes with a variable setup of Brydge keyboard and Smart Keyboard!
