Summary: Great Idea, nice and cheap, but flawed. Might need some software tweaks on your phone - several apps on the marketplace for this, some need root access. Was really useful though until I lost it because of the rubbish strap that comes with it.
Summary: Brought this on a whim even tho the bad feed back. I got it really quick and paired it really easy just follow the instruction anf it is fine. U have to use the live link do not pair like a normal Bluetooth device. Stays conected to just remember that u have to stay with in 10m of your phone . Would have given 5 stars but the battery is not good 6 hrs is all i get to a charge.
Summary: At full price, this would be a major disappointment: although the latest firmware improves the disconnection problems that initially damned this gadget, it still falls to automatically reconnect if you move out of bluetooth range, which seems pretty short (you can usually get it to reconnect from the liveview but if you leave it too long then my phone at least kills the liveview software so you need to restart it from the phone.
Summary: Its a shame really, I was looking forward to this little trinket. I can't really vouch for how well it performs with other phones, but for the HTC desire its very frustrating. Prepare one and all for a heavy modification of your phone to make this connect for any useful length of time. It has disconnected somewhere in the region of 30 times today already, with very few automatic reconnections.
Summary: Hi ive just purchased this mn800 but was just wondering if anyone knows if the bluetooth conection times out like it does on the phone or does it stay connected all the time sony erricson experia play
Summary: As per previous reviews, I've encountered the same problems as others - doesn't connect, drops connection, freezes, very short battery life. etc - which frankly makes it unusable for more than a few minutes at a time. I downloaded all of the free plugins and found most actually worked in the moments with the LiveView was actually working for me.
Summary: The thought of having a bluetooth android watch that can do facebook, rss, email, txt, etc. sounds awesome. While this device does do all of that, it's extremely buggy. I am using my LiveView with an HTC Droid Incredible. The liveview app drains your battery, even if you're not using it and bluetooth is off. Thank god for task killers!
It's not as useless as it sounds but early adopters only.

Summary: I've had mine for over a week now and have encountered a lot of the connection issues and buggyness mentioned elsewhere. I'm using a Desire running CM Mod Version: 6.0.2Desire latest stable build. CONS: The main things for me are: BT connection isn't stable. It drops constantly. Just pressing the right shoulder button normally re-connects and it goes for a while before it drops again. It's not a huge deal but it isn't working as intended.
Summary: Firstly credit where its due, this is a fantastic idea, and well done Sony for bringing the idea to market. If they got this right, this has the potential to be massive especially at this price point. The hardware is in my opinion very well made, and actually looks good. The screen is okay and functional and the buttons feel solid. Can't complain on the hardware side other than battery life which is average at best (6-8 hours). Not great if you are using it as a watch!!
Summary: Nu skall vi se. Just fått hem den. Första intryck: 10 Uppdatering av mjukvara: 10 Skärmens upplösning: 7 Att få den att fungera: 3 För helvete. Jag kan inte gå in på annat än plug-ins. Har allt påslaget i telefonens app. Den reagerar inte när någon ringer mig och den fastnar i någon slags loop när man fastnar på klockan... Lite senare: 5 Det funkar oftast. Ibland får man starta om den. Ibland funkar den inte. Vissa plugins funkar sådär men det är iofs inte Liveviews fel.
