TLDR; It's not very accurate, doesn't have much resolution, limited ranges, accuracy issues between Auto and Manual modes, can't be used while charging, lose the custom charge lead and you are screwed, tilt head detection has a bit of an alignment issue, LED testing is limited, and the secondary measurements basically don't work.
But for $70 it's very handy and nothing else can touch it, and the probe design is gorgeous.
Absolutely no match for the much more expensive SmartTweezers.
Maybe they can fix some stuff in firmware to improve it.

Ordered one w/i a week of Dave's original post, and it finally arrived two weeks ago (here in the U.S.). [I bought Miniware's TS80P soldering iron in the same order and it arrived very quickly.]

It was worth the wait. Good value, in my opinion. My real point here is to note design consistencies across the tweeters and the soldering iron, such as the use of 3.5mm (1/8") male stereo plugs, USB-C connectivity, and simple firmware updating and configuration file storage and handling.

Are these products perfect? No (nothing is perfect ... but much is improvable). These are reasonably rugged for the cost and the inherent limitations of their sizes, the firmware is upgrade-able and appears to be hack-able, and investing in learning one is surprisingly usable on the other -- and thus hopefully on other existing and yet to be released products. [Noting how Chinese companies "copy" each other's user interfaces (Rigol and Siglent come to mind), Miniware's competitors might want to study these products as examples of how many features can be controlled with how few user-interface units -- 1 and 2 buttons respectfully here.]
