Fenix E30R few questions (beam, tint, etc)

https://www.fenix-store.com/fenix-e30r-rechargeable-edc-flashlight/

I tried to find reviews but none have all the info looking for.
1] The runtimes on the manufacturer’s website seem ok.
2] Is it correct that the beam is semi-floody (I like floody).
3] I’m aware tint is very personal but how is the tint of the SST40 on high, mid and low?
4] Hopefully the beam has no hotspot….?
5] Never had a light this expensive so a coupon would be awesome.
6] Anything you think is of importance like build quality etc.

2)The beam has a medium hotspot and a big spill.
3)green, more green, super green. I plan to replace the sst40 of my e28r (probably the same emitter).
5)You can find cheaper on Aliexpress, but I’m not sure about warranty.
6)Some people don’t like the UI (press and hold for on).

2 and 3 are really bad news, also visible in the great review @samyy linked to.

This light has by far the best runtime at 800, 300 and 150lm.
The efficiency at lower output is less important for me.
Fenix E30R: 800lm – 1h55
Lumintop FW3X: ~850 – ~0h45
That’s a huge difference!

Note that battery capacity is different (2600 vs 3500mAh).
Fw3x also seems to have a strange behavior on mid.
