Announcement on Facebook.

They managed to figure out that bundling PDF instructions with 80Mb video file is not such a brilliant idea.

512 MB Micro SD are no longer correct working when formatted internally.
128 GB works correctly. Everything above is incorrectly displayed in size.
But since USB OTG can also handle NTFS, the 128 GB internal limit is not particularly annoying.

Still testing battery life but it made it feel snappier and scrolling seems to be handled much better by doing that greying out it does momentarily to speed it up. Also now supports apps like Naptime by Franco.

I own a mars , but seeing that naptime app I installed it on my device , does it actually make any difference with this devices ? Do you have certain options to enable-disable for maximum efficiency ?

Okay so device had been running great for me but battery drain was nuts even with naptime putting the device to doze mode on sleep. Then the update came for 10-26-20 and it said power drain was a fix in the patch notes and it seems to have worked 5 hours in sleep and lost maybe 1%. I'll update this post after a few days.

Bump:

Okay so it seems to have been stable and for two days asleep only lost this much and is behaving same. Now I'm gonna try it with naptime back and see if it improves anymore. For reference it was not at 100 but 97 so the drop is very little so far.

I can confirm it as well. Battery life is much better now. I only lost 2% in the last 3 days.

Yeah good to hear. I haven't tried naptime again yet.
