Wow. I was NOT expecting that. As the reviewer herself notes, ‘OnePlus’ is noted for delivering very slick & comparatively affordable phones. So, this was a huge surprise.

I was curious about this watch. Though we have never owned a OnePlus phone I have read plenty of good reviews about them.

How can you get the step count off by more than 10,000. That is mind blowing.

As some of you know, I check the step counts on Garmins, Fitbits & OCCASIONALLY Polar & Amazfit. I expect to see some of them off by say 1%. This is damning. Didn’t they TEST. I am at a loss.

Why bother to release a watch if it has so many faults.

A whole team needs to be FIRED.

Well, that is that. I will not bother looking at this watch.

A Decent Pat On The Back For The ‘Canon EOS RP’ Mirrorless Camera I Bought Last Month.

Pretty decent endorsement of the Canon EOS RP. I went from a Sony a7 II to the EOS RP. So, I can see where this guy is coming from and pretty much have no real bones with what he has to say.

I like my Canon EOS RP. No buyer’s remorse. It is an easy camera to use and I just LOVE the Canon lenses. I had missed those.

I definitely would have no qualms about recommending the Canon EOS RP to anyone. It is affordable and well-worth the money and THE LENSES. Yes, the lenses. Get the camera for the new lenses.

Samsung ‘Galaxy Active’ Smartwatch Gets A Far From Favorable Review At ‘Gizmodo’!

Wow. Not good.

For many, including I, the ‘Health Tracking‘ is the primary rationale for getting a smartwatch like this.

As she says, the good news is that this is all software-related and Samsung will be able to fix it with new versions of the firmware.

Glad I did not rush off and get one as I had originally thought of doing.

I am now waiting to check out the Garmin MARQ Explorer.
