I use speakerphone all the time, and I've never had any problem with it being half duplex. We can even both being speakerphone. We're always going to be "taking turns" in talking, with even interruptions being in those little pauses between phrases or clauses.

I think that, if half duplex didn't work well enough for most people, they would have a better solution by now, like using noise cancelling to remove the speaker's audio and stop any feedback loop.

Privacy is, of course, a different issue. I'm not going to take a call on speakerphone if other people are around and I can't go out of earshot.
