Top critical review

I bought this Eno as a second tuner, and because it was cheap, as I have guitars in different rooms, but it is unusable. I read, either on the box or in the included leaflet, that this thing is accurate to within 5%. 5% seems like a lot to me. It seems to be very easy to tune up with this so that it says you're in tune (everything is green and the line is rock steady on the centre line), but as soon as you play, it's obvious you're not. I use a Boss clip on tuner, and although that does struggle with the lower two strings, especially the bottom E, it is accurate. Producing products for cheap is all very good, if the product actually does what it's supposed to do, otherwise it's money spent on something to throw in the bin, so not cheap.
While writing this, I did a quick test. With the Eno clipped to the guitar, I tuned the bottom E. When it said it was in tune, I moved the tuning, just a little, but enough to hear the pitch change. The Eno didn't register it. The needle didn't move, and everything stayed green. My ear is okay, but it's not great, but even I could hear the pitch shifting, and this thing couldn't.
I don't like to give such negative reviews, but there are times when it is justified. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I've used tuners for years and they're pretty straight forward tech.
