The only predicted problem I can see remaining is thermal; I think this one of the first cased system videos I've seen, and there's a suspicious cut after the first two games, so I wonder if they had to pause filming to let the system cool down, or to recharge an empty battery. Maybe I should check the phawx videos again, but I'm honestly a little unsure how much continuous filming I've seen so far.

I wish they'd enable the power icon so we can see the battery level. I think they've hidden it there, haven't they? And I wish they'd give up on the glance-away-and-you-miss-it dissolve fades. I'm not surprised they can't get all of that gameplay out of a single charge, but them doing all this amateur level PR shit over the top of it just makes me wonder what else they're hiding if I'm honest.

They'll be @e3 again, soon :/

I don't like the form factor of the Smach Z, regardless of its hardware etc..
The hands holding the device look cramped and slow because of it's width and you will have to hold it pretty high or tilt your head down.
The GPD Win devices and their clamshell form work much better in that regard, as the screen is above the holding point of your hands and they are slimmer, because of the seperated screen.
Also, the placement of the buttons looks very unergonomic.

Smach is at E3 . A number of people have tweeted saying they used it hands on.

Here are a couple of vids released
