Brand new GPD XD PLUS: Case deformed / battery issue?
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:39:38 am »
Hi,

I've been part of the boards for a few years - just have been quiet. Now I've got a brief question to all GPD XD (PLUS) owners:

Mine has arrived the day before yesterday and it seems like the case bottom is kind of deformed. Not dramatically deformed, but the small plastic feet do not sit completely on the table. So the GPD XD+ has no firm position, tilts and can easily be spinned around it's own axis. See my video:

I'm afraid that the deformation could come from the battery. Maybe it inflates inside of the case? Or is it just normal? For warranty reasons (and because my fingers are all thumbs), I don't want to open the case.

Please could you check if your XD or XD PLUS has the same case issues? If not, I'd send the device back to the seller and would ask for a new one.

Thank you for your help and SORRY for my bad English.

Mine also has very slight deformation to the shell, but i don't think it is anything to worry about. I had to be very picky to even notice it.
