What experts liked

It's of good quality, very heavy and thick, and the pedals are non-skid, so you don't have to worry about slipping during use. We can use it for days on a single charge!
- Oh So Savvy Mom
Smooth ride. Attractive design. Smartphone app.
- Tom's Guide
Fast, practical, and safe. Intuitive app. Included anti-theft lock.
- Lifewire
Easy folding mechanism. Powerful headlight. Shock absorber in wheels.
- Top Electric Rides
Overall, build quality is good when you take into account this is one of the least expensive electric scooters. Its built-in LED information display, and its design make it an attractive entry-level scooter.
- Electric Scooter Guide
Excellent mile range and top speed. Smartphone connectivity for ios and android. Great weight capacity support. Lithium ion battery for long battery life. Extremely compact portable scooter you'll love.

What experts didn't like

The brakes misalign after the first small bump, the clip for the folding feature will vibrate off as it is only screwed onto the fender, the tread on the back tire become racing slicks after a mile and the front tire is....well, its toast after 2 miles on rough pavement.
- Oh So Savvy Mom
Nonadjustable handlebars. Has trouble getting up steeper hills.
- Tom's Guide
Struggles on steep hills. No pneumatic tires.
- Lifewire
Some components, like the brake lever, feel cheap. The brakes needed some adjustment, and the cable routing isn’t the best design. The brakes are also a little noisy.
- Electric Scooter Guide
Low visibility. Not for those with limited riding experience as this folding scooter has an app. We experienced some issues with the android app that comes installed on these folding scooters.
- Pro Scooters Mart
The price is a little too high since there are other models with similar features.
- Electric Ride Lab
There is a red cable going on the outside of the scooter, I would have preferred them to go inside the frame or at least use two black cables. Have an issue with the cruise control, similar to early m365.
