Translations being what they are, there's a lot of room for misinterpretation.  What I was concerned with was that someone mentioned noise.  Does anyone know if it's a creaky kind of noise?  The kind of noise that you can physically feel because some part of the plastic is rubbing against another?  To me, that's worse than noise, that's like "fingernails on a chalkboard" sensation.  My 7300 was like that initially until I broke out an X-Acto blade and shaved off the far edges of the dpad just to get it to stop doing that or I wouldn't be able to use it.

So, can anyone with actual experience comment?  I know there's very few of us with a G7 so far. 

Personally, I'm feeling so fly like a G6, like a G6, like a G6.  Haha, sorry, I couldn't resist  ;D

That is the feeling I have with the 5800 pad. Directions are fine but something is rubbing.

My GPD G7 came with a few problems:

-The right stick is lower in the case than the left causing it to be gritty.
-When I press to the right of my screen it looks like something is poking the screen from behind, causing a blemish on screen.
-The device don't read the charge correctly, it said 15% for hours!
-The right trigger is much harder to press than the left trigger.
-My Dpad can almost spin around if you try to turn it.
-Around the outer edge of the screen the corners are pressed down, Perhaps done intentionally to keep it there.

Other than that...great device. Perhaps Im just unlucky, If the stick and screen could get fixed I would be very happy with the device.

Haha, I had mid expectations coming in :P, Im not returning it or anything, and if it came down to something that stopped me from being able to use it, I would take it apart.

Alright:

-Can't charge through Usb, at least I can't. I plug it into my computer with the provided cord and no charge sign comes up on the device.
-Heat you cant notice until you place your hands in the center of the device, hands on the grips you feel nothing. In general the device gets warm, I wouldn't say hot.
-Weight, I would have to say holding it with one hand its a little hefty. Two hands the weight is way below the average tablet.

Hope that clears somethings up.

Thanks, It seems good so far, it has a large battery capacity so i can live without usb charging, Have you done any game streaming on it? I plan to use it exactly like a Razer edge, with splashtop gamepad thd. (really does  look like a better, cheaper Razer Edge)

I have not, but now that you mention it I will try it, I forgot about splashtop :P
