We will test the main specification and gave out our result later.

OK. Let us see more details on this device:

The cool game center which is totally different from JXD S7300 and other current handhelds:



And the keymapping menu- Later I will show you how it works:



The testing result on Antutu:





The back side really brings me a surprise. As you can see that it is designed as a "hand grip", which will help you to hold the device firmly. This avoid the device drop down or slip from your hand:





OK. Here comes the d-pad and its analog stick. The d-pad is just a little different from JXD S7300's.





The right side face buttons:





But the should button is not dual one. Only had the L, R shoulder button. No L2, R2 buttons like S7300 :'(



Here are the pictures when we turn on the device:











More testing will be released later...

They will release the final gamepad on middle or end of this month but without the 3G version.

They will release the 3G version later but dont know when.

I dont mine to get the gamepad without the 3G because i seldom using it, most of the time i am using is wifi.

Good to hear, really interested in this device, hope it is as good as its potential seems to be. The major things I would like to know are:

-Quality of the d-pad, especially for emulators
-How well the analog sticks work (Are they analog?)
-The battery life (which I imagine should be pretty good compared to other current devices)
-The virtual mapping tool I read it is supposed to have to map touchscreen games to hardware buttons.
-How comfortable is the unit to hold and other general things like build quality and sound.

I'm taking notes...

I'll test all the gamer stuff on this device. If somebody have a request to be tested i will take note about this. (In general, i think i do many tests that users most interest have, but if there is any question that i find usefull to test and grab video, i will show)

In general, i have a good battery of tests to do, including the most popular android games and stuff like that.
In first time, my test will center on benchmarking, running android games (i usually play android games basically in my travels to my office, in subway or bus, then i can give my personal impression about how feels this device running these games because i consider myself a "real" tester of devices, because the use i give to them)
the games that i usually play are:
- Nova3
- Modern Combat 4
- ShadowGun
- BladeSlinger
- Dead Trigger

for emulators, i have my own list of games that i know how must to run. With these games, i can feel if the device have input lags or things like this.

(note: when i grab v?deo of these games, usually i put my camera over the screen, and i cannot see what happends on the screen. this is the reason because i sucks playing these games on my vids... hehehe)

greetings!

It's A31 then? :(
From the benchmarks and reports I've read, the A31 is barely any more powerful than the dual core RK3066 - and in some cases performs far worse. Take this for example.

Quote
First, let me state my feelings on the matter. First, the A31 is, at best, a slightly "upward" but still extremely "sideways" move if you are coming from the RK3066. Its performance is "neck-n-neck" vs the RK3066. On a "per-core" basis it gets slaughtered because the Cortex-A7 is significantly lower performance than the Cortex-A9 per clock cycle, AND, the chip is only clocked at 1.2 ghz per core vs the 1.6 Ghz of the RK3066. So more performance per clock cycle and a higher clock speed means that for single or dual threaded applications (which is the majority of all android apps) it under-performs significantly vs the RK3066.

I'll be giving this one a miss. I'll hold out for an RK3188 handheld.

Doesn't matter if this device is 'barely' better than an Rk3066. Most rk3066 devices can't enter deep sleep and so the battery life depletes even when you aren't using it. Add in the fact this is the first device to have a big battery and that should allow you to game for much longer per charge than current devices. And if the build quality is good and the mapping tool works well, then count me IN!

I had the Archos Gamepad and turned the CPU down to 1.2 ghz and it played all my android and emulator games just as well as my Nexus 7 did. If this has similar performance as the Gamepad, it should play most games quite well and the overall speed of the device should be pretty good. The downside to the Archos gamepad was disappointing screen quality, weak D-pad, less than desirable battery life. This particular device appears to be potentially better in those areas, although we will have to see the results of the tests. I would certainly be willing to sacrifice some processor power to get a much better overall gaming experience. If this is more of a "sideways" processor move, it could potentially be much better in almost every other area of the device compared to the Gamepad which would be a step in the right direction and I would purchase it in a heartbeat.

I used the rom in this link, not sure if it is either of the ones you are describing.

I use the one from the Spanish guy. Love it. Allows all games to be installed to the external sd. Not had any sd lag or unmounted problems either. This firm has solved all my problems except for the battery life.

It looks like the successor to the S7300. Very nice, though I'll probably just wait for the next JXD systems.

A few things that always sucks on game tablets:
- Viewing angle (important when you are not at the perfect angle for viewing), IPS is allegedly better than regular LCD
- Battery life: archos gamepad was something I liked, but bad battery life is a no-no
- Dpad: dpad clicking, when my wife is sleeping and I am playing, is really a turn off
- Wifi connection: may be faulty. My G18a is awful, so I added an external wifi dongle. Now it is okay, but I can't add anything external...

Deenox, please add viewing angle (my G18a sucks awfully on this matter), as for wifi connection on several routers (if possible) for testing

Dude, calm down. Asking literally the exact same thing over and over again is just sooooo fuckin annoying. Willgoo or others will post and notify you when any news is available, until then just sit back, relax and wait for an update. The device just barely launched, everywere says the same thing - mid to late may for the initial release (which in reality probably means mid june)... It's still the first week of may, and you've been asking the same stupid question since the day they announced the device a few weeks ago...
