      "This is a terrible gift idea. I received one as a gift, and I felt the person who gave it to me must hate me. First, you have to go through gyrations to use the Google app store, instead of Amazon's shallow substitute. Then, unless you pay a premium, you're treated to ads on your lock screen, that are just annoying, and can't be removed! Additionally, the battery life on this is just crap."

      "I was not expecting a lot for how little they cost but the quality really impressed me. Not only did this turn out to be a great gift for a coffee drinking friend I liked them so much I ordered a set for myself. I honestly did not expect this much heft in such small scoops but they feel incredible every time I make myself some coffee."
