GPD XD PLUS questions before buying
« on: January 31, 2018, 08:36:10 pm »
Hello I just got few questions to ask you GPD XD Plus Owners

1. On the GPD XD the bluetooth doesn't work correct? the new GPD XD Plus the bluetooth does work correct?

2. Is GPD XD PLUS huge improvement from the GPD XD?

3. Is the Screen sharper on the GPD XD PLUS?

That's all the questions I have

Thank You for answering my questions have nice day

1. Old XD has no bluetooth. New XD has and looks like it works ok.

2. Surely it's an improvement, bluetooth, android 7, 5ghz wifi, better compatibility with newer games and apps, 4gb ram, but it's not really that huge.

3. According to The Phawx video, the old XD has a screen that's kind of yellowish, while the new XD it's more like blueish. Look at 4:25:

the screen is the same. It just has several mode for white colour balance that phawx didn't change, But you can change them with miravision. (included in the firmware).

I have several videos on my YT channel

I can't tell about any differences you can see while using the device but they are using a different screen now.
When I was finalizing a order of parts from GPD I ordered a couple replacement lcd assemblies and a bunch of lcd ribbon cables and after originally saying they were identical on both devices Crystal got back to me and clarified the XD+ is using a different screen and ribbon cable and they aren't cross compatible.
For all I know they could be using the same panel with a different controller and connector but there's something different between the two.

Well, when I said the same i meant that the colour / contrast etc is the same. Noy sure if it's exactly the same panel.

Does anyone know what the maximum resolution and refresh rate is for the HDMI port on the XD Plus? I'm planning on plugging it in to my 4K TV occasionally for some gaming and possibly some media streaming.

Thanks! That sounds perfectly fine for media streaming.
