I went to manage my pledge and it was $597(3atoms) and I change it to $610 ($13 extra for the armband) but after I updated my pledge it went automatically to $630..! Can anyone help?

@Aron: I was praising you about reminding people to focus on the phone! No misunderstanding.
Good work Aron about trying to answer questions to the best of your ability if Unihertz delays their response... :)

Review from Kickstarter
It was a nice crash test for my current phone: https://www.youtube.com/watch… :) WVC > if everything is as you said, they are just putting together "unsold stuff from previous orders", this makes me think that Atom is not a choice for me, to replace my old Samsung B2710... WVC > Comments for making it larger, are to let Unihertz know, that we would accept a bit bigger phone, especially if they have issues with "cabling it", was mentioned earlier. That antennas won't work and so on... Unihertz > more or less great work done, and I think "best" that you do not talk about HW pickup decision. I understand there is no more other phone on the market, which would support Android 7.1 and later or any other updated OS/FirmWare is available on the market. That makes Unihertz do not care about backers/buyers. The only alternative I found is: Motorola Photon Q LTE, but not produced anymore and was not available in EU market...

Review from Kickstarter
@厌难折冲: I assume it will be released, but "For other areas, we charge $20 for express delivery. The parcel will be sent out from HK warehouse via DHL express. " - so I don't know why not with free shipping like to EU/Japan/USA.

@Nick: after enjoying the irony in your remark ;)), let's enlighten @Giorgos: "How to purchase Add-On products? 1. Press the “Manage Your Pledge Button” above. If you have not pledged yet, it will say “Back this Project”
2. Increase your pledge in the pledge Amount box by the total of the add-ons you want to add.
3. After the end of the Kickstarter campaign you will receive a survey that will ask you questions so that you can explain how you would like the add-on money assigned."

Review from Kickstarter
@Hei: that's what I'm doing, I just don't like when somebody mentions me as a bad example. While @Unihertz is quite inactive with replying to the comments (thanks for showing up a few hours ago!), I'll try to answer those questions I know the answers for - everything according the Atom, so still concentrating on the phone.

Review from Kickstarter
Corning Glass 3 I heard is more durable than Aluminum. Not bad at all! It's very comforting to know that the glass on this phone will be tougher than my Light Phone 2 coming out next year, whose outer body is 100% aluminum. Another great design element includes the case/buttons one-piece construction; that way dust wouldn't be able to seep in the gaps, an issue common on most laptops. Please stay civil and @Aron: FOCUS ON THE PHONE

Review from Kickstarter
@Giorgos: the "special kit" costs $229, while you can pledge 3 Atoms for $597, so with the armband ($13) and bike mount ($15) added it only costs $227 per Atom. That's not a big difference, but since you've pledged for 3 Atoms, it's cheaper to keep your pledge and add $13 and $15 as many times as you need.

Hi, What would the radiation level be like on this phone? The SAR value in relation with european norms ??
Jimmy Johnson
Review from Kickstarter
I understand the creator might be busy but this no contact is crap. A lot of posts are complaining about stretch goal discounts and they keep going, they are letting some dude named Aron speak for them, and there is a serious lack of communication. It worries me and I have my pledge schedule to cancel in 5 days if they don’t start communicating. Instead of speculation about why things can’t be change we should have an explanation. Backers are how they are building this product and yet they can’t figure out how to update us.

You should have named the different Atom offerings with element names. For example the single Atom would Hydrogen the double Atom would be Helium and so on.

@Matthew - absolutely. Totally lame stretch goals.
Zero benefit to the backers who got them there, just a grab for more backers, and very poor value one at that.

Anyone think its odd the stretch goals are discounts? I mean they made a million so why not just make a 12 dollar attachment free as a stretch goal.

Review from Kickstarter
@WVC: it seems I know a lot more about HW development than you. The last time I've expressed my wishes and dreams was two weeks ago. "there's the way Aron does it which is subversive and detrimental to the overall effort" - that's just meaningless, like all of your comments about me. Try to focus on the phone! "polite suggestions" - why weren't my suggestions polite? BTW, did you see @Unihertz's or @Stephen's replies somewhere in the past two weeks? If you're older than 30y then I wonder, because you can't bear others' opinions and thoughts. I really do hope it was your last comment about me - have you seen me jumping on anybody (just like you)? FOCUS ON THE PHONE. @Hei: as you can see I wanted to read @Unihertz's and @Stephen's replies and opinions, but some oversensitive folks are always getting mad at me no matter if I just try to help someone (like the guy with his questions about ANT+). BUT I think you're right: "It was quite insolent of certain individuals to suggest we should just accept whatever we're fed." @Unihertz, @Stephen, please, express your thoughts here, share your vision with us!
WVC
Review from Kickstarter
@Aron - you've admitted that you know nothing about hardware development. You're only proving your own point. If you think BlackView and Unihertz are on the same level regarding size, resources, and experience, you apparently know nothing about the phone business. Also, why don't you wander over to BlackView and give them your recommendations? Why don't you go post two dozen times about how "only if the phone had an IR Blaster it would be the perfect phone" and see if they're responsive to redesigning the entire thing at the 11th hour to accommodate you.

@Hei - I never suggested anyone should "just accept whatever they're fed." I am saying that there is a respectful way to offer suggestions, and then there's the way Aron does it which is subversive and detrimental to the overall effort. I'm advocating for only two things - one, folks making polite suggestions should bear in mind that Unihertz is trying to make the Atom the best it can but is also dealing with real world restrictions tied to the manufacturing process and has already committed to a specific (and short) time line for delivery, and two, one you've made your suggestion do not harp on about it post after post after post after post after post (@Aron). Go on with your life and stop trying to bully Unihertz to do your bidding and stop monopolizing the comment thread.

Review from Kickstarter
I agree, we ought to speak up about what could be improved/upgraded. Otherwise innovation would be stunted. It was quite insolent of certain individuals to suggest we should just accept whatever we're fed. We're human beings, not robots. This project is much, much more than just a business; offering a product to be sold and phased out later. It's about offering a level of quality and hence, endurance that surpasses all competitors. It's not difficult once you put your mind to it.

Review from Kickstarter
@Nick Martin: google for BlackView BV9500 Pro, you'll be amazed - BlackView will start their campaign soon, but they will start delivering their phones in August. Whoa! ;)) Calling 4 months a tight schedule in 2018 is BS. How will you use your Atom outdoors without seeing anything on the screen? Why accept an almost good thing when it could easily be perfect? Sorry, but a campaign is about campaigning.
Nick Martin
Review from Kickstarter
@WVC - +1 to your comments!
Hei Yeung Lau
Review from Kickstarter
I understand technical difficulties, but I personally would go for a change of screen. We backers just make suggestions, it's not a deal-breaker for me. But if the team could take upon our suggestions and improve current specs within the 4 months left, it would be beneficial to all. The dimensions are fine. Improvement of some specs that can be feasibly upgraded within allocated time frame would prove the customer-oriented nature of Unihertz, and would build customer loyalty and trust. @WVC, I understand completely your case. But with recent technology like CAD manufacturing, it has become much faster than 20 years ago to make changes/redesigns. Not to mention it is not a one-man job, but a dedicated team to help make people's lives more convenient and seamless. I do not wish to antagonize anyone, and we are all in this together. God Bless!

Review from Kickstarter
@WVC: "overflowing" - most of the time there are 12-24 hours between two comments, that's not what I would call "overflowing"! @Unihertz: keep up the great work!
Aron Somodi
Review from Kickstarter
@WVC: "You don't have a company's reputation at stake, so (and this is @Aron)" - who requested or demanded anything in the past two weeks? I assume your favorite movie is "Silence of the Lambs" - sorry, I just expressed my opinion. At least I've tried to brainstorm a little with the fellow backers. I said the Atom is great as it is, but it could have been better. Almost all of the reviews say the Atom is a neat little powerhouse - with a screen which is barely visible outdoors. There would have been solutions, and October isn't a tight schedule with a finalized product IMO, I've participated in successful campaigns with even tighter schedule, but it's OK for me. SO nobody had requests or demands in the past two weeks, BUT I still have the Jelly / Pro's update e-mails and they rock, while the Atom's updates are mostly marketing BS with @Unihertz and @Stephen totally inactive here.
WVC
Review from Kickstarter
This comment thread is overflowing with people who know nothing about manufacturing or the manufacturing process. Without trying to put words into Unihertz's mouth, it's pretty obvious how this developed. They had the Jelly Pro - a tested and successful product. They saw an opportunity to make an incremental change to make that product appealing to a different section of the market (i.e. ruggedize the phone). They also saw an opportunity to push a tight schedule by restricting the changing variables (i.e. focus on changing the casing and meeting rugged/water resistance standards). Likely having supply lines from the Jelly Pro still active, this was an ideal situation and they took the opportunity. Thousands of other folks also realized this was a great idea and backed the Atom. Unfortunately, folks with no actual knowledge of how manufacturing works have been glutting the comment section with the most absurd requests. Completely different screens, completely new features, changes in size and shape . . . etc. I'm afraid that these folks have no inkling of how difficult such dramatic design changes would be - negotiations to establish new supply lines, factoring in those unplanned cost changes, incorporating those design changes into the manufacturing process, and performing additional testing to ensure that the already proven model and format of the Jelly Pro would not fail under completely different configurations. Given the extremely short schedule for this phone, there is no way any of these proposed features could be incorporated without forcing a schedule delay (and possibly a cost increase). Your uninformed requests are putting Unihertz in a no-win situation. You are asking them to field a piece of gear they cannot possibly adequately test in a time frame they cannot possibly meet. But what do you care? You don't have a company's reputation at stake, so (and this is @Aron) please continue to make your entitled demands and do your best to actually hurt the Atom and this campaign by continually asking backers to compare the actual vetted design of the Atom with imaginary, non-existent Utopia Phones that are perfect in every way and do everything you can magically think of. Meanwhile, the comment thread cannot be used for its actual purpose (reasonable questions to the project designers about the existing product and not demands for completed 11th hour redesigns, polls, and the like - heck, lets even demand Unihertz just destroy some Atoms for our entertainment). And I cannot fault Unihertz for declining to wade into this circus - you've made it impossible for them to comment here. They cannot (and nobody in the world could) meet the insane requests for radical redesigns, so you've placed them in the situation where they can only come here and say "Sorry, we cannot do that within the scope of this project" over and over again. I'll say it again - if you think it's so danged easy to design and manufacture the "perfect" phone - then do it. If you actually support the Atom and Unihertz, then please stop trying so hard to undermine this campaign. "Complete Silence" would be more than welcome at this point (and I suggest you consult a dictionary because the word "complete" has a very specific meaning that you are failing to grasp).

Review from Kickstarter
The screen is quite poor on the prototypes from what I've seen; for such a durable phone it needs to be protecting high-end stuff! Otherwise the protection level is not worth it. Since it's small, it needs to be extra clear and compete with the best phones, like Andy Rubin's PH-1 Essential Phone. Maybe different colors/body types? Red isn't for everyone...Speakers need to be protected from dust...

Is the glass used Corning Glass SR+?
Ahaha!
Review from Kickstarter
@Aron & Hidehiro. Then we are 3. For me 2 SIM are very useless too. Yes, I would be happier with 1 SIM and 1 micro SD. However, I bet that if Unihertz would publish a survey, the result will be astonishing higher than 3, probably more than 90%. 2 SIM are useful for separating job & home. However, when hiking you don't care of job. So I feel Unihertz is wrongly mixing 2 unrelated niches.

Review from Kickstarter
@Smith and @LIMA: thanks for your corrections, I didn't know it! @Matthew L. Rodriguez: (just in brackets to avoid trolls: that's why I tried to "campaign" for a better screen, but I stopped because a few got annoyed. I thought a 800x480 AMOLED screen would be better OUTDOORS, because most of the reviews say it's quite dim and low-res. What would really make the Atom unique is a transflective LCD, which is gorgeous outdoors - I have an Amazfit PACE fitness watch, and no phone could beat its screen's visibility under the Sun! :))

felica needs additional security encryption logic (JIS format card OS) other than NFC-F. It only can be a viewer if it only support NFC-F. We can not make a payment with it so it may be useless for customers in japan... https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c…

I think it comes down to size. I'm looking forward to holding a phone again that's not made of wet soap, but I wouldn't mind if it were a wee bit bigger.

My honor 7x has two slots, and unless I'm mistaken, one can hold either a second sim or a micro sd card.
Aron Somodi
Review from Kickstarter
@Smith: Atom has NFC, so most probably it will work. @Hidehiro Shimizu: they said the hybrid sim tray (2 sim and 1 micro SD slots) would take too much space - maybe next time! (I would be happier with 1 sim and 1 micro SD, but that's me, and maybe you.) @Stephen: (just in brackets to avoid trolls, because it's my opinion since @Unihertz never replies to our questions: as far as I know what we saw in @Zack's video is the final product - @Unihertz said they won't change anything, but it already seems pretty sturdy and durable! :))
