While I own both a GPD XD and a GCW-Zero, I personally prefer GCW-Zero.

GPD Is nice and all, but it runs a bloated Android and honestly, it drives me nuts. I have gigantic hands and I find the GPD a little uncomfortable to use, meanwhile the GCW-Zero is a lot more comfortable.

The only thing I wish the GCW-Zero had was a nice bright IPS Screen like the GPD, but there's something you can do about that, thanks to @com64.

If you decide to go with the GPD XD, you might want to consider installing the Legacy Rom following the nice guide on YouTube by Retro Rob.

Good luck.

I disagree a bit. ZERO has the friendly, easy-to-use OpenDingux O.S. vs complex Android O.S.

If you know what you're doing, research & mess around enough with the GPD XD, world can be your gaming oyster.

Honestly Android is hardly complex, you get a frontend and you're pretty much done with it.

As far as bloated, if you install the Legacy Rom linked earlier it's a moot point

So far I'm enjoying my Aikun Morphus X300.  It's been powerful enough to run almost everything I've thrown at it so far and I like the bigger screen and the removable controllers.  The negatives seem to be that even though it's fairly new, Aikun seems to have already abandoned it.  There aren't any software updates available, no one has rooted it, and the promised accessories have yet to appear.  That being said, the glasses free 3d screen makes watching movies a treat.

(For emulation I basically just added the emulators I needed.)

The morpheus x300 is made by aikun, not Xiaomi. Unless Xiaomi has rebranded It.
