    Awesome little radio! It came in a nice box, no damage from delivery. The package came with the charger, wall adapter, belt clip, battery, antenna and the radio itself. No lanyard. The radio does have USB-C which was added in a clever way. 2 of the pins from the standard battery type were removed and replaced with an LED indicator that shows red when charging and green when fully charged, as well as the USB-C port. The speaker is very loud and has super clear sound. Playing music in FM radio mode sounds amazing, you can hear the volume and quality in this video i made: Bluetooth and GPS work as expected, but you will need to be outside to get a GPS signal. For some reason Bluetooth and GPS do NOT work at the same time. If you enable one in the menu, the other is disabled. This could cause confusion if you enable Bluetooth, the left/arrows to access the GPS menu do nothing. All bands are working, and you can even listen to the FM radio waiting for an Airband signal. When a signal arrives, the radio automatically switches away from the FM and then back, very cool. Airband is listen ONLY, if you try to use the PTT button you will just get busy tones from the speaker. Since the radio is basically the Radtel RT-490 / Socotran 8629 / JJCC 8629 in a new more modern looking case with the new USB-C battery, it is possible to use the Radtel programming software and also the app (not made by them, probably JJCC, but it's the only public links i have found). If you have a PC or an Android phone, you can download the software from here: "Radtel RT490 6 Band Radio Bluetooth APP Download (for Andriod)" "Radtel RT-490 6 Bands Radio Software" ("seller" linked here some software in one of the questions, the same software as above, but only in Chinese so don't bother) The programming cable is the "K" style Baofeng, my cable is on the way, haven't tested it yet.

    Great hand held radio. Covers more bands than any other hand held that I have owned before. I found it easy to program the radio using my cable from the baofeng radio that I had, you have to set it up as a Retevis on chirp. Also loved the AM air frequencies (RX only) great to listen to the pilots talking to the local airport.

    Recieved item today, tested and 100percent working. still looking for the android app for it. Very satisfied with this radio. But your courier in the Philippines, Ninja Van is the worst, slowest with very bad tracking service. Hope you find another partner courier here. Thank you Baggood.

    The good - fantastic audio reports; rugged feel; the bands it offers The bad - no way is the battery 5800 mAh, more likely 2000-2500 mAh, battery lasts a respectable 12-16hrs with average usage. My Watt meter hovers around 8.5-9W, not 20W. The screen is a very, VERY soft plastic - as in you will scratch it by wiping it with a microfiber cloth - the solution? Put a flexible cell phone screen protector on it. The verdict - at this price point, knowing what I know, I would absolutely buy it.

    good radio with wide band capabilities. could be sold for a cheaper price than $85 as it is a copy of Radtel and some minor finishing issues. But nevertheless a good radio with USB C charging option.
