I got mine from uplay.  So far, I am liking the phone. I am still customizing it, (customizing a watchphone, never thought I would  be saying that!) so I really can't say anything about the battery life. It's kind of disturbing that people are so up in arms about long battery life, especially the ones that aren't waterproof.  Showering seems like the obvious time to charge the phone; several days without bathing doesn't sound healthy. This phone is getting a lot of attention from the modding community. Here is a link to one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2575556 It looks like a standard android phone already.

I'm curious about your experiences!

Battery life does matter to me. Charging takes more than an hour, showering doesn't.

Customizing will make the watch interface much better. I used Lightning Launcher on my AW414, but any alternate launcher will do. The strange thing is: I can't find a way to keep the notification bar visible using another launcher. i think it's still there, but outside the screen.

I'll read the xda thread meanwhile. Thanks for the link!

Try the Sliy Press Keyboard. It is, to my opinion, the best keyboard for such tiny screens. I couldn't use it with the Z1, because it takes all width meanwhile filling the whole Z1's landscape screen. For small square screens, it's perfect! A bit getting used to, but just a bit. The concept of the keyboard is much smarter then other press and slide keyboards, because for the most used characters, just pressing is enough. Only 10-20% of the time, you need to slide (any direction you want).
It's almost qwerty, but not full qwerty. Searching for the right character and getting used to this keyboard lay-out goes fast.

WAY COOL! In the XDA thread, they suggest to install Shake Screen On Off free. While moving the watch face from 'away from you' to 'towards you' (sensitivity can be set), it automaticly turns on! Finally you DON'T have to press a button to see the time! The developer says the app won't drain the battery. I'll test it on my Simvally AW414.

I use lightning launcher with this as well. There's a home button for the notification bar that l use. As far as lock screens/screensavers, I use the kitkat lock screen. An app killer is necessary. With it, the battery only went down about 3% overnight. I have tried the Slidy keyboard before. It's good, but I need the microphone button.

Ok...Bas and Rick , Both of you have watches that are the "here and Now of wrist technology". It would be great to get up to date info from you guys and how the apps and battery life work for you.

Which homebutton do you mean? Part of Lightning Launcher? Or the fysical button?

I installed an activity launcher (Nova launcher), added the activity "standard lancher" in Lightning Launcher via Nova Launcher and uninstalled the Nova launcher after that (the activity icon will not be removed). Otherwise I always had to chose "standard launcher" or "lightning launcher" ("only once"), now, the lightning on is the default ('always')

The AW414 does't need an app killer: the battery doesn't drop at all at night, when in flight mode.

I receive my AW414, after few charge, the battery life is really good.

Be carefull of the value of charger, need use 1A max.

I found some videos of a guy who play with some android games and emulators with his ZGPAX!

 

With  sixaxis apk it is possible to play games with a dualshock controller wirelessly via Bluetooth...

The home button app I use is "Home Button".  It is an icon in the notification bar that work like the hardware button. FYI, HSPA+ is a type of 3G. I don't know what the icon is supposed to look like, though. As for the battery, I think it is the wifi that drains it the most.  The 3% is with mobile data on.  That other forum has a list of specific apps that work/don't work, like facebook doesn't work. For the most part though, google store will say whether it's compatible or not.
