GPD G5A (rather G58) vs JXD s5800?
« on: May 08, 2014, 12:12:17 am »
I have been trying to decide between these 2 (I put G5A in place if G58 bc same hardware but fewer ppl have G58 yet) for a time and can't decide. I know hardware is better on G58 but the only thing tempting me about the JXD s5800 is the L2 R2 and the screen resolution and vita style analogs but is it worth the higher price and hardware dip? I heard somewhere that JXD S5800 performs around same as JXD S5110B which is crazy for a Quad Core I guess if thats the case I'll get the GPD G58...but what's the score? Lol.

In my opinion the g5a is the whole package.  Quad core, screen resolution doesn't max out your hardware, dual clicky analogs (xbox 360 style with slightly concave tops), and 4 shoulder buttons.  Plus Skeleton has made firmware for it.  It only costs about $100 USD.  I have a JXD s5110b with the analog sliders and they are so much more difficult to deal with than true analog joysticks.

G5A has one major drawback though - portability. It's bulky and needs a case really, if you're outside the USA than finding a suitable case might be difficult too.

However it is a fantastic console with excellent controls, I love mine.

I bought a hard plastic pencil case for mine.  I just put the bubble-wrap from the g5a box inside so it doesn't bounce around.  I may look for a camera bag or something with extra pouches for my hdmi cable, headphones, and charger, but for now it works well enough for travel.

I have mine in a Poundland lunchbox now, works quite well. May be getting a buddy to bring one of the Vaultz pencil boxes over soon, they're like the holy grail of G5A cases!

I'm doing quite well thanks for asking. How is everything going with you all? I received the G5A yesterday and it's a pretty great product. I had a little bit of a delay getting it up and running as I had to purchase a European to USA plug adapter for the power cable to work. I'm pretty impressed with the length of the battery life. I've charged this once and tried various games and it's still almost completely full. I'm still testing out the various emulators and applications. The operating system and software feels responsive and fast. Overall I would say this product is great for the price point and I can't wait to see more from GPD. I honestly wish we could see more quality builds like this for the price in America.

As far as improvements, so far the only noticeable thing for me is that the D-Pad could be improved greatly as it feels a little unresponsive and audibly loud. Also it would be wonderful to see analog R2/L2 buttons on a device such as this in the future.

The G7 looks great, and I hear you have a few new products coming out soon such as the G58. I look forward to hearing more about GPD products in the coming future. Thanks.
