@Chex and other guys who are interesting in Q88+,

Just got the latest news from GPD. Q88+ had been out of stock now. It will be available next month. We will update the information on Willgoo once we have them.

For the gloss version, we will wait till next month when the device available. We will update you the news promptly.

For the issues on speakers, we just got the confirmation from the manufacture. There is only one speaker working on Q88+. Thus, the issue is normal.

Thanks.

Has somebody problems with the SD slot in Q88+?

I tried some other SD cards but always the same (on official ROM and Legacy ROM):
The OS don't recognize the SD card properly. When I start the device I must put out the SD card an put it in again.
Anyhow the SD card will not recognize everytime and "crashes" somtimes =[

EDIT:
Don't laugh but I think the headphone jack has something to do with it.
When the headphones are out, there is no problem so far... I must test it again after work.

Any updates on your issues adventureFAN? I've just discovered these devices, and REALLY keen to jump in on this one (regardless of it's crappy analogue sticks).

Just one question though. Have you tried different kinds of headphones? I know I have some with a battery powered bass and vibration, and it seems to cause a spike in voltage on some devices. Might be interfering with the SD card?

I could just be talking nonsense though. I do that sometimes ;)

It happens with or without headphones... =/
Sometimes after a coldstart I need to reinsert the SD card.

But I don't know if I'm the only one with this problem.

Ah, that's annoying. How come you haven't sent it back? Hard to trust some of these sites aye? My Neken N6 phone just developed a dead spot across the middle of the screen, and I'm debating if I should even bother sending it back. Heard some bad stories about never getting devices back after sending them in (From PandaWill).

I can't even find any videos of the Q88+. Strange considering they're sold out everywhere. I really want to see what they're like in action.

I didn't send it back because when I become a new one, I must pay the custom charge again... about 36 euros plus shipping.
Thats the disadvantage buying stuff in china.
And yeah, It's a little bit annoying... but I arranged with it =/

Mate, that sucks you've got to pay customs. We have a high customs limit here in New Zealand thankfully. We don't have to pay unless the item is more expensive than $400.

Have you tried customer service or anything? Or just waiting to hear other users opinions?

In my country there's thee possibility of getting it to pass free if you show the receipt of first time you paid. Try to research abbout it i  your country.

Oh ja... it's in every country. I never went through that procedure because I didn't needed to, but it takes a HELL OF TIME when they don't trust the value declared (10$ for a tablet lol). So then they take their time to send a letter home, then I have to send them a transaction value (paypal or visa printscreen) and wait wait wait... until it finally gets unstuck and sent to my place! Terrible. But sometimes, (rarely) it slips through them and I pay zero lol

Sounds like you both get pretty screwed by customs.
I got stung by customs once... For a Sony Xperia Neo phone... They called me at work, asked me to email them details of the online purchase, then I paid the tax over the phone using credit card, and they couriered the phone to me at work later that day.
I guess we don't like waiting for things here ;)

Okey, DHL shipped me the package directly but I must pay the customs also directly to the driver.
Fortunately I have enough money in my wallet.

my unit works nice, all gpd q88+ units have only right speaker working from what i see, other than that it works very nice, only "complaints" are :
- micro sd card slot is not spring loaded, have to use something to get card out
- small a b x y buttons arent that great to hold them constantly for example in mario kart to drive, theyre a bit too soft for this, theyre great for fast taps and very silent.
- tried to turn off screen with hdmi connected so i have only picture on TV and i pressed power button to disable screen but hdmi went black and i couldnt bring screen back again on GPD and TV no matter what i did, also when disconnected HDMI cable i wasnt able to bring screen back, it was disabled, had to reboot console and im not sure how i did it.
