Anyone got a screen protector for this, as it wasn't included in the box? Which phone would have the same display/button layout?

Mine come with screen protectors - front and back set x2. One set already applied, and the second set put inside the leather case. You should probably ask for a refund if your don't have these and they are most likely not BNIB.

It should already have 1 screen protector applied on the screen and on its carbon fiber back fresh out of the box and also there should be 2 extra spare screen protectors in the box.

Yeah, you are right, didn't event notice them. I wouldn't call the ones aalready applied "protectors" to be honest, but the ones included are :)

Uhm...the stock one stock applied to the front looked more like those included with new phones...one of those very, very thin ones you take away once you unbox the device. The back one was indeed a proper one. I now applied the other included one to the front. By the time I'll have to change it I guess there will be third-party ones around just like it was for the AK120.

So you mean you have double layers screen protectors on the front now? redface.gif I am not sure if that is a good idea for screen sensitivity and UI smoothness....

The pre-applied one on my unit. You can see the edge of the protector. While not as think as those Corning glass protectors, it is definitely not the type of new phone films you described.



But you are right, in any case when another replacement is needed there should be plenty aftermarket options for us to choose from.

Try scratching the screen with a sharp knife to check if it is a real protector and let us know.

Ok, i figured that it was an .aif file that was not able to play, and not .aiff.

 

Dear AK representatives, would there be any potential firmware to be released in the future to support .aif files?

I am more interested in seeing a better fit, nicer looking case for the AK240 than the default one that comes with it. Or at least a black version like the one I have on my AK120 rather than a greenish brown one which can get dirty very easily.

Same here.. not a fan of the stock case.  Not that it's not well made or anything, in fact the color is quite unique and cool imo.  Just that I bought it for the metal look and feel and it totally beat the purpose if I use the case.  Also having extremely bad experience with the AK120 case with scratches on day 1, this time my case never even come out of the box.  I'm just using the small pouch from my TG334 to store it inside my pocket.
