>> Bluetooth matters to you and you have an android phone, try rockbox as an app AND check your bluetooth earphone is not "phone calls only"
>> Many phones will run it successfully as mine do = Galaxy S 1st gen, Motorola Defy 1st gen and many others I tested (owned by friends, sorry I can't remeber which)
>> BUT some won't as some I tested. Many times it only seemed to be a display problem = rockbox running but impossible to use with tiny unreadable screen. Hopefully more screen resolution being available, rockbox will run on more phones.
>> Rockbox as an app is not stable but still very usable. My advice is to create a list of shortcuts including AT LEAST "SHUTDOWN" to make sure you can easily and definitely shut the app when you don't use it and want to save battery life
>> As for bluetooth earphone bear in mind some "phone call/hands free" bluetooth may not work with a music app (not only rockbox, any app including android native media app). I have this problem with my Samsung SBH650, shame as it would allow me to connect many of my "cable" earphones.

Rockbox as an app is good as... rockbox..! It depends on the smartphone as it does on any other port. As for crashes, it's like using it on an "unstable" port. Some unstable player player barely ever crash (my D2 never do). My smartphone did until I spotted exactly when. I avoided a few things that seeemed to make rockbox crash and it worked. I even became so used to it that I cannot even remember what things were implied. It has become a natural habit so I don't wonder.
