smaller than expected
I don't have a smartphone, but I do have the Dura version, so although I don't need the "electronic fingers" I bagged a pair of these when the word went out that they were in stock: they sell out quickly everywhere, which says something.
Quality is as expected and they feel lovely to wear, with a nice long cuff and the gripper works well.
I roughly measured my hands and got a good fit. However they're not shaped and the palm is a little baggy when gripping the bars: you have to wriggle the wrinkles out of the way, but this is a minor complaint.
Obviously they're not windproof and I've found their limit to be around one or two degrees. I'm getting a windproof shell which should mean these will do for all but the coldest rides.
I haven't done a direct back-to-back comparison, but initial impressions are that these aren't strikingly warmer than the Dura version. These are great gloves for a good price, but if you don't need ET and are on a budget, you won't feel short-changed with the non-Merino version.
