    Oops, apparently I dont keep track of what phone I have. After Dean's post I checked and i have a S8 not S10, so apparently I'm no help to you.

    Do the one's you're talking about just look forward? The teslong has a mirror that screws onto the end so you can see the walls of the bore better, all the pictures folks have posted using a forward looking scope dont compare to what the teslong shows with that little mirror. I can actually tell what I'm looking at with the teslong vs. some of the pics I've seen using mirrorless scopes where I cant. I'm sure the guys who have been using that kind forever can accurately interpret what they see, but straight out of the box, first time ever looking into a barrel I could easily understand what I was looking at.

    A couple I saw had mirrors but I would have to say the mirror made it to big to use in most smaller caliber rifles....
    Harbor freight had a 5.5mm which I believe is .22" or so...but I don't know about the accessories like the mirror....
    So I would hqve to venture a guess that teslong is probably the best way to go.....
    Info appreciated.....

    sometimes the app on my phone wigs out. I just close all other apps and reopen with no problem.

    The only thing I got to do is go to settings for WIFI and click on the one for the bore scope

    Happen to me,but I figured it out.Keep the first app instructs told you,don't screw with the app button itself,you'll slow your phone down,the app is mudded up .Restart your phone.I think this is what your experiencing; when you first plug it in,it tries ,then goes to a gray screen or partial gray,part image, tap your phones back button,should take you to a screen,top screen shows a pic of a complete endoscope camera,one below shows a pic of your cable "usb endoscope" with a setting symbol, tap that one,not the top one.Sometimes takes a couple back and fourths ,depending what else is running in phone. Good luck.

    I just got a Telsong last week and found a 2" crack in my brothers rifle barrel about 5 inches from the muzzle. It was really cool to be able to see throat cracking and other things I was not able to see with the prior USB cameras that can't see at 90 degrees. Best $50 spent in a while.

    Couldn't get most of the apps to work. Ended up down loading the one suggested by Teslong, CameraFi. Works great. A little slow to open, but otherwise works fine.
