I now own three We-Vibes: the We-Vibe 3 which was purchased for me years ago as a gift, then the 4+ which We-Vibe sent me and the We-Vibe Classic which SheVibe sent me, both of those in exchange for an honest review.
If you read my original review (which can still be found here, if you happen to be curious), you’ll know that I was so excited about the 4+ but really mad about the new design because it simply was not compatible with my genitals. I loved the specs but the shape was horrible.
Then a few months after I published my review, I saw that they had just released the Classic shape with all of the extras from the 4+ (app, different texture of the toy, new model of the remote) and I was thrilled.
You need Bluetooth LE in order to use the app. For a list of what devices are compatible, see the “Compatibility” note at the bottom of the review.
Did you know Bluetooth won’t connect if the one side is submerged? I didn’t. I did my initial test while in the bathtub and it took me FAR too long for me to figure out what I was doing wrong.
The Classic, like the 4+, has been made in a matte silicone instead of the glossy silicone that the 3 was made from, which I really like the look and feel of. It is also more flexible than the 4+ which means it’s a more comfortable fit for some. The Classic fits my genitals perfectly and stays in place on its own (bonus points for being fairly discrete under clothing!).
One design change that I like better in the 4+ versus the Classic is the placement of the on/off button on the vibrator itself.
I find the button on the Classic is a lot harder to use than on the 4+, especially when your fingers have any lube/fluid on them.
There are four buttons on the controller; on/intensity up, two for mode control, and off/intensity down.
The intensity on the internal and external arm can be controlled separately and you can even create your own custom vibrations (both these features are only available using the app, not the controller)!
Speaking of the vibrations; there are so many settings (10, to be exact. 5 available from the remote and an additional 5 available if you use the app, plus a customizable setting). A lot of them I don’t like because I prefer the internal vibration to be steady or a wave, not pulse, but there are several that really do it for me. The vibe, pulse, wave, tide, and crest were my favourite preset options, in case you were wondering.
On the picture; the white line indicates the vibration of the external arm, the grey line being the internal arm.
It’s made out of 100% medical grade silicone and has a matte finish instead of a gloss one, meaning it doesn’t pick up as much dust and lint as the 3 does.
The vibrations are rumbly, not buzzy, and in my opinion feel stronger in my hand than they do when actually using the toy. If you like intense vibrations, this is not the toy for you. It’s not strong enough to get me off without additional stimulation (I used the Silk Large dildo and the B-Bomb butt plug), but that’s not why I’m interested in this toy. This toy interests me because I want to give someone else the controls and let them tease the hell out of me on and off throughout the day for as long as they want (maxing out at the vibrator’s 3 hour battery life) and not let me cum. Based on the strength of these vibrations and my personal preferences, this toy is perfect for that because it feels really good but isn’t enough to push me over the edge.
