Been waiting for a D-pad like this. Still not sure if I want something this big though.

How are the nubs compared to the JXD s7300's? If they're about the same, then that's fine for me.

Nubs are not very good, I think even worse than 7300B

Seeing you like 5110b, have you considered the GPD-g58? I say it because g58 is very similar to 5110b but q88S is a 7 inch device, much bigger and not as confortable as a 5 inch device (for me at least)

You raised a good question.
The fact that a 7 inch device can't be confortable as a 5 inch one.

I love the grip of the 5110b, and it weight.
I don't know how a 7 inch device will apply in this case.

My main objective in changing the device was to solve some minor annoyances of the 5110b, like the wake up bug and the lack of home and back physical buttons, but thos problems I'm quite aqquainted to it, so maybe it's not the time to change devices att all. My 5110b is working perfectly today, plus, in the past I've changed his battery.

Other objective was to get a bigger screen, but for someone who mainly plays with it on the crowded subways of Rio, a 7 inch can be a pain to play with narrow space.

I will take a look on the 5800.

Thanks again Skelton!
The hardware must go to the limit !

No go im afraid. Had it confirmed in an email from them that Wilgoo dont take credit card and from the looks of the Geek buying site they dont either (still waiting on an email confirm from them though), not that they stock the q88+ yet.

So! If anyone can recomend a site that stocks the q88+ and will let me pay with a credit card, please let me know. This device ticks almost all of my boxes and is a shade under $100USD. My birthday $$ wants me to buy it  ;D

If the G58+ was available, that could be a different story though, especialy if it had a realy nice d-pad.

I had no problem at all with the s7300b nubs, so that doesn't tell me a whole lot.

Are they not comfortable? are they hard to use?

It's hard to move them in a fluent way. s7300 nubs were better in this sense, though I never liked 7300 nubs either.

We do not support the payment via Creditcard directly. You can register an account on Paypal and complete your payment via Paypal. This is the safe payment way. Thanks.

So what is it with battery, how strong it is? skelton said its only 2800 even if it says 5000 on willgoo website, so can anyone confirm that its really 5000 and you can play longer than on g58 ? what device has better battery G58 or G88+ ? I suppose G88+ will use more battery because of bigger screen so its better to buy g58 to play longer?

I have already explained that. My device is a protoype and not a final device, that's why my device comes with a 2800 mah battery and 4 gb nand flash. Final device is 8 gb nand and 5000 mah, at least according to gpd, but I don't have a final device.

That still isn't helpful. I'll wait for someone who owns the final hardware to say something.

Well sorry If I am not helpful, but I don't know what to say. I tried to play dead trigger 2 and nubs are not precise and pretty unconfortable. In s7300B it played much better.

Analogs are quite bad to be honest, which is not a problem for me because I don't use them. But if you want a device with good analogs, take a look to g7, or the iPEGA, But q88 is not thought for a good analog experience, so to speak.

But you've already said you've only used the prototype and not the final. I want to know how the analogs are on the final.

Most probably the same, because only difference between prototype and final is battery and nand flash, at least according to GPD.
