    App is impressive

    My friend's boyfriend had a blast playing with it. He was so excited when he saw him self appeared on his iPad screen. We made the robot walked around our kitchen table and set one of our friend as rebel. It's a great for entertaining friends.

    Little, but lots of fun

    Bought this from Apple because of the packaging. The white sleeve looks so nice compared to the alternative.

    I was a bit nervous at first since it wasn’t working on my iPad. I contacted customer service and they directed me to the FAQ site and I realized my iPad is just a little too old.

    When I tried it on my iPhone 8, it worked perfect. Initially, I was skeptical by the facial recognition, but it actually works! On sentry mode patrol, it lets me pass since I set myself to commander. It’s so cute!

    For me, mission mode makes it worth the price. Love the AR experience during mission mode. I’m looking forward for UBTECH to upload new missions in future app updates.

    Def recommend this product as a gift to any Star Wars fan. It’s a bit short for a Stormtrooper, but lots of fun~

    Great Robot and Fun to Play with!!!

    The Trooper Robot was delivered the second week of Jan and looks AWESOME!!! Setup takes about 10mins with the first time update, very simple and easy as long as you follow the instruction. Great price about what the robot can do: facial recognization, AR in gaming mode, video streaming from it's camera and technology on the feet that can detect edge while walking on the table.
    Walking is a bit slow but I get it, that's how current bi-pedal robot does and with this price point, I can't complain more. Both me and my son enjoy playing with this robot and I believe with the App update along with more content, this robot will become a big hit in the market. Get one if you have not spend your $$$ yet!!!

    DO NOT BUY - Never Works


    Without a doubt the biggest piece of junk ever. DO NOT BUY. Just wasted 4 (FOUR) hours with 2 iPhones, an iPad, and an Android Galaxy - NONE can connect to this thing. And this is even with their hyped "udpated App" that they mention above should fix the problems. Nope.

    You get stuck in a frustrating loop of it first connecting directly, then it can’t connect to wi-Fi, and then you can’t connect directly again. App locks up on connnection screen.

    Deleted app, reinstalled, reset robot, repeat in different order, every time- lock up or fail to connect. I’m the most tech savvy person in the world so this isn’t us - this is RIDICULOUS implementation of connectivity.

    And then guess what? Go to ubtech.com and try to find support for this droid. They don’t even list it.

    Try to reset your password? Also fails. It sends you a link to verify your email address, and when you try to verify, you're taken to a page that doesn't exist. All of these things should be example that they have no idea what they are doing. Nothing works properly.

    I’d really love it to work, but no one can connect to it!


    UPDATE! After a few hours, opened again, deleted all apps, and started over. Guess what? This time I got a connection to work and it wanted to do a firmware update of everything. MIRACLES! Yay, that should fix everything, right? After firmware update, it reboots, connects, but, uh, guess what. Connects, says it connects - but no, can't issue any orders, take pictures, do anything. So we reboot everything. And now guess what - back to the same problems that started this review - CAN'T CONNECT!

    And that's after firmware updates. And resets. And reboots. And re-installs.

    AVOID THIS ROBOT AT ALL COSTS! Wasted a weekend wanting it to work.
