    In regards of UI, m6 is basically a heavily customized Android where you scroll vertically only. It doesn't have a playstore though and you can only sideload limited white listed Apps. Smoothness wise... To me it feels close to a Samsung S4 which isn't superb but it good .vs where ap80 is suitable

    I'm with you on that. They should scrap those, make the screen just one page. This is a player for people who load up their micro sd cards with quality music and just want to listen and enjoy without any gimmicks.

    I noticed it's very hard to carry around the AP80 in my pocket as the wheel get's easily pressed and I often accidentally turn my device off while moving.

    I pointed this out on my initial impressions after I received my unit last month. I thought it kinda fixed itself on my unit, but looks like it didn't. The power button is kinda sensitive, indeed.

    Did you also enlarged the holes for the play/pause and previous/next track buttons? Because those are the ones where you could barely press those buttons in that leather case.

    I didn’t. Those actually line up on mine. They are a bit hard to push, but I don’t use them that often. They are a little close together too, and I don’t want to compromise it’s (meltable) integrity.

    They do line up on mine, too, and yeah, as we said, they can be barely pressed at all with that case. Will try your soldering iron mod on the USB-C and 3.5mm holes sometime.

    Yeah, I just realized that the holes are a little close to each other after making that post, and it might ruin the leather case if you tried to enlarge it LOL.

    Despite getting the early Dec "pick another colour than red to get it now" email, I'm still waiting. Personally, I wouldn't care, but I told my wife it is for her and she doesn't get this Kickstarter extended delay nonsense. However, if it doesn't appear soon, I'll be contacting my credit card as well.

    Oh well!

    Looks like you should've opted to wait for red instead of agreeing to change it to black, believing they'll immediately ship out. Oh well...

    I believed the disinformation :)

    So the other day I bought the AP80 from AliExpress and I ended up buying a red one. Well the day they filled my order they ended up putting more colors on their website. Anyway I contacted them asking if they could please change the color to blue if it hadn't left the warehouse yet since I really like the color blue. So last night they messaged me and said the held my package for me so that they could change it to blue. So unless reviewers or someone else got ahold of a blue one I'll have one of the first blue ones and I'm stoked!

    Still no blue on Hidizs' own website, bizarrely.
  13. PCgaming4ever
    Yeah I thought that was really bizarre too. I did see some people had gotten the purple one on post on Hidizs' weibo page. They also mentioned the new colors available for sale or pre sale or something like that on the weibo page so maybe it's a china first color then they will ship those colors to the rest of the world?

    Heads up guys people that are dealing with issues with their devices you may want to hit up their weibo account they are answering issues and questions there pretty well from what I can tell. Example they are saying on wiebo they will exchange your leather case for a new one with the holes fixed.
    Translated version: "This is the case. In the early days, our leather case did not take into account the actual needs of users with large plug headphones. As a result, the headphones of these users could not be inserted. Now this bug has been fixed and will be standard on the product; Users who have purchased AP80 can contact Taobao customer service, we will mail a new leather case to your office free of charge, thank you for your supervision and support of Hidizs brand"
    Link to that quote use Google translate to read

    Also I saw a post saying they have a unreleased beta out and you can contact Taobao customer service and ask for it maybe someone who knows Chinese can get in contact with them and get the file and post it on here.

    Agreed that pedometer is stupid in a DAP. Cannot speak about FM radio - I am sure some would really appreciate it (I don't care either way).
    I am still waiting for them to deliver on their promise to add proper podcast & audiobook support, though!
    Judging by their responses here, and fulfillment of KS orders - I do not hold my breath :frowning2:
    @kenloveme totally disappeared, and out of 3 DAPs I bought in 2018 through KS / Indiegogo - the AP80 was the worst in the way the company handled the fulfillment and customer support.
    AP80 is my first, and most likely last product I buy from Hidizs. VERY disappointing experience all around!!
