It works best on hard surfaces, but not well on thin carpet and almost not at all on super thick carpet.
Doesn't hold a charge well off of its charger. but when fully charges lasts a good while. Charging is simple and easy, All you have to do is put it on its charging place once the plat is plugged in.
There are features I haven't even gotten to explore completely, so I'm looking forward to doing that in the very near future.
Right now, as I type this, we are utiling the "Watch With Me" feature where the Droid react as you watch one of the "Star Wars" films. Currently there are, I believe, 6 of the 9 films compatible which is 4 more than when I first bought them and installed the Android app. Right now we are watching "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and I can tell you most assuredly they do react and ir's kinda' cute and funny to watch and hear them. At times it seems like they are "talking" to each other. If you have seen the movie you'll know R2-D2 doesn'T really appear animated until the last1/4 of the movie but of the 2, R2-D2 is the most animated and vocal until the last 1/2 of the movie...that's when BB-8 gets more animated and vocal.
The app has to remain open while watching the movie and you can tell they are in sync with what's playing because it has some built-in "detectors" that will appear like for the Wookie and Resistance Leader (Leia). Movements of the Droid are limited because they, too, need to be plugged in while watching so the power doesn't drain and you don't need to worry about them travelling and falling off a table-top ot other surfaces. That being said, their heads do move (R2-D2 also rises up & down) and their sounds...well sometimes the sound coming from the droids is a reaction (like being scared when something appears suddenly) and sometimes their sounds are a commentary to either the situation ot the person on screen.
I noticed in Google Play there are multiple apps for the droids but the one to install is called "Star Wars Droids App by Sphero" because you can manage and operate ALL of the Star Wars droids Sphero makes. I was able to connect to both droids in the apo to watch the movie.
In all, they have been enjoyable and though I've.watched them a lot this first time out , they only seem to ADD to the movie experience...they are not really distracting at all.
