The VERZA is one fickle lady.  Today she's playing sweet.  No snap, crackle or pops!  Although she wouldn't connect immediately.  Took a whole bunch of switch flipping to make her connect with my iPod Touch (which I recently found again).

I've just tested the new Samsung Galaxy J SC-02F Jelly Bean 4.3 based (this is so far a Japan-only Samsung phone that's like a mini Note 3...same specs as the Note 3 but in a 5" screen. It's not exactly the i9506 either).

 

The good news is that this Galaxy J works with the Vamp Verza with the XDuuo microUSB<->microUSB cable. I don't know if the xDuuo cable is an OTG or straight-through (like the VentureCraft). I'll yank out the Verza mini cable later to see if that works or not.

 

There's life in the Verza still for Android :D.

 

Edit: I've tried the miniUSB cable that came with the Vamp Verza and it works fine too.

Does anyone know if you can upgrade the battery?  I'm always running out of juice!

Not officially, but if you can find a bigger battery that fits, it is just a straight swap.

Am surprised that nobody has done it yet.  Just looked at the pics of the VERZA opened up.  It does look easy...  Maybe too easy...

It is suppose to be easy.  I did a gut swap between the VAMP and a white Unit 4.0, and that was even more involved than just a battery upgrade.  However, just make sure you get a battery that is thin enough for the case, so I suggest you open it up and measure it before getting your battery.

I don't know what is in the air, but I am AGAIN experiencing cracking with my Iphone 4 and the original Vamp.  I give up and am going to bite the bullet to upgrade to the 5S.  I am at a loss as to what is causing this problem, but hopefully changing out source, amp and connection will eradicate the problem.  I know it is not my files because the problem is intermittent.

Could anyone confirm for me (perhaps AnakChan) if the Go Dap X flip case for Iphone 5 is compatible with the Verza?

Shame on you that didn't read my MM5 review with my VERZA... (j/k). Yes it works.

Thanks Dr. Sheep, where can I find your review??

 

Also, does the GoDap flip case attach on the opposite side of where Metallo would go?

 

Also, the flip case is a Japanese import (to US) and doesn't come with a screwdriver like Metallo does.  What screwdriver would I need to attach?  It looks like a very small star shape, but I am not handy and have no idea what it is called.

 

Have you used either or both?  If both, which do you prefer?

Here you will find all the answers.  However, I do not have a Metallo.

Update:  Picked up a 64GB 5S, connected to Verza and loving it.  I am planning to go with the flip case from Venturecraft over the Metallo if I can find it (emailed Venturecraft, no luck with US Google search).  Compared to the original Vamp, I would say Verza is more neutral- bass isn't as boosted and mids are definitely more forward.  One of the things I like about Verza over Vamp is the bass boost option when I want it.  The mids, particularly vocals, are coming through so well I just changed my mind about ordering Alpha Dogs, at least for now.  The synergy with the Sig DJ and Verza is fantastic.

 

If any Iphone 4/4S owners would be interested in purchasing Vamp, PM me.
