Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I've been using this monitor for over 2 months now, and these are my observations thus far:

Pros:
--The wide-angle view. I thought it was almost 180 degrees, but the description states it is 102 degrees. Great view nonetheless!
--The magnetic base is awesome and feels very stable. You can position the monitor pretty much any way you want, and it will stay in the desired position. The magnet is very strong.
--Fabulous image quality, especially at night. I rarely check the monitor when the room is lit (there are thick, light blocking curtains in the nursery, so even during the day, it usually defaults to night vision)
--Setup was simple. It probably took less than 10 minutes.
--The audio-only feature is nice. I can still use my iPhone 6S and switch between apps, while having uninterrupted audio monitoring. This feature helps preserve battery life. Evoz will also stop the streaming video automatically (I think after roughly 2 minutes..?) to preserve battery. You can set it to keep the video constantly streaming if your phone is charging.
--Nice to be able to check on my baby anywhere! Well, anywhere that has a cell signal :)
--Whenever I'm on the app, I can see if another designated person (my husband) is also viewing. There's a small, person-shaped icon in the top right corner of the screen which will have a 1 or 2 next to it, depending if we're both viewing. My husband is the only other person authorized. You can add/remove additional authorized users, which is nice.
--There is an option to record the streaming video, and screenshot it. There are record and camera icons on the screen. Obviously you can screenshot without the app's help, but the feature is there :)

Cons:
--The temperature gauge seems a little off to me. I wonder if it was designed to default to Celsius instead of Fahrenheit because it'll jump from 76.2 to 77 degrees, or go down from 72.4 to 70.8. The degrees displayed are typically in decimal format and they jump up or down to the same degree and decimal "brackets", instead of, for example: 74.2, 74.4, 74.6, 74.8, 75, and so on.
--The temperature gauge seems to run a little hot in comparison to my other monitor. I have the Evoz on the same shelving unit as my first monitor, but the Evoz is about 2 feet higher, on the top shelf. Currently, the Evoz temperature reading is 77 degrees, while my original monitor says 72 degrees. I know heat rises, but it seems quite a jump in temperature for only 2 feet of height. When I'm actually in the room, my original monitor's temp reading seems closer to what I'd estimate myself, and closer to what our home thermostat displays.
--The biggest reason why I continue to use my original monitor is that I like having a separate, hand-held device. If I used only Evoz and just had my iPhone as the monitor, I would be charging it much more. The streaming video definitely saps battery life.

All things considered, I would definitely recommend this monitor to others. I would also tell them that through this experience, I have realized that I prefer having an additional, hand-held device. I wish Evoz had both.

*FYI: My original baby monitor that I've been comparing the Evoz to is the Infant Optics DXR-8.
