Bought the jb ghost town for my nephew for Christmas not knowing that it was limited compatibility. I went to download the app to find out that my Huawei P smart 2019 wasn't compatible!. Very disappointed.

Thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear that you didn't have a compatible device available. Hidden Side's Augmented Reality features require special AR technology. While there are lots of devices that do support that tech, not every one does. You can always view the full list of compatible devices at LEGO.build/DeviceCheck.
I really enjoy the theme of these sets and ordered a few. The Ghost Lab has a lot of nice little touches, including the unique ectoplasm tube piece. Outside the game, there's a few moving parts to play with in the final model, as well as the 3 minifigs and dog. One thing that would make it cooler is if the platform had been deigned to rotate or have doors. If access to the AR game is important to you, make sure you check that your phone can run it ahead of time. I like the sets themselves, and ordered before properly determining none of my devices would run the game.
I think that this set is a great set for the smallest of the range! It has great minifigures (Jack, who is unfortunately not exclusive and pretty common; JB, who only comes in this set and the bus in the first wave; Mr Elton/Douglas who sort of comes i the stunt truck, although this time he has hair - and he also contains a possessed face and incredible hair; and Spencer, the ghost dog, who is an excellent piece.) Overall, the set is a pretty good lab, including a 3d printer with something in it, jugs of chemicals (which you can move around to interact with the app), that spinning thing (also used to interact with the app), very lab-ish looking things pointing upwards and a computer. The set does have quite a few stickers, although I do not think they are too hard to apply and add nice details to the set, which I like. Apart from both of the phones, the pizza and the keyboard, everything you see is a sticker. Overall, I think this is a great set which can be played with and enjoyed both in the real world and in the app.
