14.Is this speaker compatible with the Galaxy S9 phone?
This is a feature on the phone side. On my Samsung android phone, once connected, I can go into Bluetooth settings and select whether this device should be used for "Media", "Phone Call" or both (default). The speaker itself does not control this feature, as it's just a Bluetooth accessory connecting to your phone. I'm guessing your phone has a way to turn off the "Phone call" use of it, but you'd have to check your phone to be sure.
15.What’s the accessory in the package?
Yes, it should be. As long as the device is equipped with Bluetooth it should work.

Besides the Groove Bluetooth speaker, the package contains a USB-C charging cable, a 3.5mm aux cable, a 60cm lanyard, user manual and warranty card.
The Bluetooth transmission range is 100ft/30m, which can provide a stronger connection with longer distance compared with other ordinary Bluetooth speakers on the market.
