A380 Apartment - Seat recline?

Does anyone know what the actual recline is on the A380 Apartment for the seat?

I've seen very mixed reviews from "it's fine, great, soft" to "no recline, horrible, don't do it".
But I can't find anything that actually says like:
4", 2", etc.

Well, not sure it will be overly sientific, but I try to report back as I am flying SYD > AUH on the 27th.

Were you able to guesstimate the seat recline?
Thanks!

It's not the best for "lounge position" to be honest. I couldn't tell you a number though then again it's not so bad I wouldn't fly it again, had a very comfortable 13 hours

The seat controls are a little hidden. I suspect many first time flyers in the cabin don't realise it's there.

It does recline but nowhere near the angle one usually gets on other carriers. Many will be used to seats that become fully flat beds like in EK or QF F but the EY cabin is not designed that way.

Would you say it's equivalent to an F seat on a US Domestic carrier/flight? Like on DL/AA I think most of their "regular" (non-lie flat) the recline is like 4-6" depending on the air craft.

I would say it's the same as QF 737 J.
