"I believe the root cause of the poor battery life is a bad choice of radio hardware that is not very energy efficient. They probably chose cheaper chips suitable for larger phones where battery life is not that limited. But I think there is also…"

"OK, indeed I overreacted here, sorry for that. I tend to do that from time to time, especially when I have built up a certain expectation from previous posts. The given suggestion made too little sense to me to appear legitimate enough to overcome…"

"It is about the same size as the AW-414, it is a bit wider but it is less tall than many watch phones because the strap connects at the bottom. $169 is a very good price."

- UNBOXING AND TEST - DIWEINUO SMART WATCH PHONE D6 WITH BLUETOOTH...

"That looks pretty nice, very compact and styling is not bad at all. Nice strap design! Too bad they don't power it on in the video. Judging from the specs it has some updated version of the familiar MTK operating system, which is why I…"

"All right, here it is: my review of the Abardeen F80. The hardware is pretty damn good, and warrants the higher price tag. I did not even take it apart yet because there was no need to, and I don't want to risk compromising the water…"

Hello Dr. Kex,

Greeting! I own TW810. I have gone thro' your discussion on TW810. I want to access/view the system files of TW810. Can you please share procedure for how to basically root TW810 so that the watch internal system files are reveled. The reason to have access the system files is that i need to  modify the clock screen saver appearance(modify color ...).
