    Oh no! I'd ruled out the G Watch R until listening to Paul's comments and reading the review on the site! Heard over reviews (guessing based on video reviews rather than in the hand reviews) that its screen is too small, cropping is an issue as its a square screen with just bezel making it appear round. What I do like about the G watch R is that the screen seems recessed so will be a little protected unlike the 360. Also P-AMOLED with ability to keep the screen on efficiently.

    Was considering 360, but the processor and battery size put me off. One review suggested that after software updates, the performance and battery life are now comparable with the G Watch R now. Can that really be true???

    Will be interesting to hear your views on Zen Watch when it comes in, however, from the pictures I've seen, although the strap and casing look nice, that is one large Bezel around the screen. The other thing nagging me about the G Watch R is James comment recently regarding square vs round :-(

    I'm sure the Sony will be good, but just don't like the look of it.

    Any idea if the One Plus watch rumours have any weight? Guessing not.


    Could do with being able to visit a retailer in london to see them all side by side, but it  doesn't appear they are high street items :-(

    • Hello. I've been using this smartphone since 2016, I went through the official upgrade to Android 5.1.1 and then to 6.0.1. Long story short I'm now with TWRP 3.2.3-0 and Lineage 14.1 (Android 7.1.2). I found some interesting bugs: one is that if you have low battery, about to self power off, and you switch on the torch, it stays on even after the phones is powered off, and you can't turn it off whatsoever, except plugging in the charger and switch on the phone again I guess, but I didn't try it. The matter is that if you let the torch on to let the battery discharge completely, and the light goes off, when you charge it again and switch on the phone you can't switch on the torch anymore, even tho the system claims is on, it doesn't beam any light from the flash led. The only way to "reset" this status is to open the phone, removing the back cover, unscrew 3 screws that hold a tiny bar and manually disconnect the battery (most rightside connector) and then reconnect it. Not even holding the power button helps. Another bug is that if you turn on the phone, and then, without putting it on stand-by, check with some kind of cpu monitoring app the cpu cores activity, the less powerful cores of the A53 are awake and running. If you put the phone in stand by and then re-awake it up, they are always on sleep or "disconnected" or similar status. Even tho it seems that this doesn't affect performance, so it seems that they doesn't show correct running status but still works. Last but the most important: the phone THROTTLES at room temperature!!! If you try a cpu intensive app, the cores throttles at 800 MHz or less, and if it heats more it goes down even to 200 MHz stuttering everything! I don't know if it gots bad thermal spread design or is it a thermal sensor bug, since in system monitor apps it shows temperature above 49~50 in idle while room temp is 20 to 23 °C and over 67-68 while running full calculations! Can anybody confirm or else suggest me some solutions to these issues? Thanks.
    • It worked well on my liquid a1 (running custom rogers rom). Should work on any acer based 2.2 roms I think. But I cant guarantee 😉 use at own risk.
    • I have experience this fine product by Honor. There are some features which are competing with expense mobile companies as well.I'm looking forward to buy honor 20 pro for some latest updated version of it.
