Well I have to say I wouldn't be bothered by the contrast if it's per the picture here, as it is still very readable even though not ideal, but I agree with your battery marking assessment. The lack of credible means to transfer the content to a PC though is for me a major issue. It's just too inconvenient to consider using. I'd rather use notepad on my iPhone or something like it. I await version 2 with anticipation, R.I.P :-) someone hasn't heard about the GM Nova in Mexico :-)
A USB port and the ability to download a .jpg or .pdf would seem like the minimum requirement. Sounds like yet another large team of college grads first attempt at product design. Could have hired a few people who know what they are doing.

I agree with your assesment. I'm not really sure what type of product they were trying to produce. Unfortunatly, it looks like their entire design purpose was to create a paperless piece of paper for the sake of being green. I'm not sure I go through 50,000 sheets of tablet paper in my own lifetime, but I guess they are quoting the lifetime of the product.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
