Took me 45 minutes to successfully connect it to OnePlus 5. Connection does occasionally break. Seems to work better when it has a good mobile internet, but I don't see why would internet be required at all (except firmware update)
Ok, I want to tell everyone to stop complaining please, cause this thing, and the mini sphero itself is incredible!!!! It's super easy to use, fun to use, and if you get bore 'which I don't see happening anytime soon' you have mini games to play. All this for $50, totally worth it.
Absolutely amazing, Sphero Mini is art Science and Technology all rolled up into one little ball. Precision control unlike nothing I've ever tested before and I have tested hundreds of robots and vehicles. Nothing and I mean nothing compares to Sphero Mini. The app is beautifully designed with a minimalistic interface, it is extremely easy to use and the range of speeds that this little robot is capable of is amazing. I could spend hours talking about how amazing Sphero Mini is. I look forward to Future app updates and new shells like a golf ball shell perhaps. The point is I cannot believe how affordable this robot is how much fun it is and how much joy it brings me. Everyone needs a Sphero Mini in their pocket. I'm looking forward to add ons like a marble madness style modular race track with obstacles and race Gates. I think it's worth investing the money to build a credit card payable version of one of those quarter machine vending machines you see in grocery stores but have it full of Sphero Minis. Put it in a high-end Sports Bar and build a racing table for people to race on and you would have yourself a heck of an experience.
WARNING: update won't work on older hardware. Use a newer phone to update Sphero's firmware and you'll be rolling. Love the product, the app, the design, everything is perfect here. Keep up the good work!
Bought the mini. Downloaded the app got past the email and then booted back to play store. Same thing every time I opened app.
Junk app. Won't even work. How am I supposed to play with the sphero mini if I can't even control it!😡
