So, Pokit has arrived and seems to work OK. I'm using my phone with it, which is a Samsung S7 Edge.
It connects OK, but in "Voltage DC" mode, it is responsive for the first few seconds then it seems to freeze. I get no large numbers on the screen indicating the measured voltage, just the background. Then, after maybe 4-5 seconds, it seems to recover again. Then, after a few more seconds of steady updates, it freezes again.
I accept that the readings may be slower than a standard multimeter to save the battery - perhaps just one or two per second - and I could live with that (although it would be nice if the refresh rate was configurable). What I don't understand (and don't like from a usability perspective) is why the updates seem to stutter.
Is this normal / expected and is there a fix?
