1.0 out of 5 stars Cost prohibitive, 28 Jun. 2015
I paid 6.99 for 4kg (2kg free). I needed half to surround 6 lettuce plants. I have no idea how well it will work, but even if it is fantastic it has cost me 75p per lettuce. At this price I may as well have gone to the supermarket!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good on smaller dogs, 8 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is sold as OK for dogs down to 7kg. Our dog weighs 9kg and is too small for it. The chest piece prevented her from waking properly and had to be removed. The back piece, with the camera on, is really too heavy and unbalanced and the camera slips sideways.
I think it would be fine on bigger dogs, and maybe on short squat dogs, but a 12kg lower weight limit would be more realistic

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a true Android phone and incompatible with smartwatches, 8 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This phone was bought for my son, has been quite happy with it but I personally find it clunky and awkward to use compared to my iPhone.
However, this is not the reason for the 2 star review. We bought him a Moto 360 Android smart watch for his birthday, this needs the Android Wear app to be installed to allow the watch to sync. However this app is not available on the app store and the Firephone cannot download apps from google play. The app only works on conventional android 4.3, not on the FireOS - the forked version of Android on the Firephone.
I contacted Amazon. They logged it as a problem, and told me to contact Motorola to ask them to submit the app for inclusion on the amazon store. I contacted Motorola and they were appallingly unhelpful.

So -if you buy this phone you need to be aware that standard Android peripheral devices will not necessarily work. It is not an Android phone. So if you want a smart watch you may be out of luck, and possibly left with a disappointed child who opens his present only to find out that it has to be returned.

Stick to a conventional Android phone or you may become unstuck later - as we have.


B-Grip Glider Shoulder Strap for Camera

4.0 out of 5 stars Neck saver, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is very comfortable and easy to use, its sorted out my bad neck very nicely. Obviously you need to be a little careful of the camera dangling by your side, but rally not a problem. I've knocked a star off because it is a bit bulky when you need to put it in a bag, and it needs a separate tripod adapter - purchased separately. Overall I'm very happy with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Purely a snowboard bag, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag is purely a snowboard bag, although it is advertised as a ski and snowboard bag. It will not fit ski boots (even UK5 ) in the pockets. Packing them inside with the skis would risk damage to both boots and skis.

I am thus arranging for a return of the item and have bought the 175 cm Da Kine bag which takes ski boots.

As a snowboard bag, though, it looks sturdy and well made and good value for money. It warrants 4 stars as a board bag, but only 2 as a ski bag.

It was sent from Germany, so expect it to take a few days to arrive (6 in my case).

5.0 out of 5 stars Mine are 10 years old and still like new; this knife is a present, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Global knives are to die for. Just make sure to use the proper sharpening wheel set to get the angle right. If you do they will last a lifetime. Mine are 10 years old and still like new; this knife is a present.
