This is totally asinine. First preorders got faulty-QA units, and now all of the early adopters get screwed. I don't mean to sound bitter, the red unit is an improvement and a planned one at that, but not announcing it properly beforehand is guaranteed to make customers angry.

I welcome the change, and I think the 64GB should be the new standard. But I think that we have enough GPD XD variety - so instead of some brainless upgrade to only one component, they should focus on the next product in line. Issues to fix (http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-devices/lets-talk-xd-issues/) and improvements have already been suggested.

Condering the paint issues with the Blue XD's , I don't think they should be producing anything but black XD's (in all sizes)
Unless of course they can make the red XD's in red plastic.

Post by: Deen0X on October 02, 2015, 08:44:08 am
personally, i consider the 32GB version have the good relationship between price and specs (space)

more than this, is better to buy a 64GB microSD

my usage is:
internal memory (32GB) is for android stuff (android games, game data, etc)
external memory card (microSD 64GB) is for roms, movies, music, etc.

Post by: lemmywinks on October 02, 2015, 10:18:53 am
I want as much internal storage as possible so I'm probably getting one of these, price is pretty good at ?140 and I like the colour. The 32gb would probably be enough but games aren't getting any smaller, I had 72gb total on my old GPD and that ran out of space so I think 128gb total is a safe bet.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: jamesensor on October 02, 2015, 07:20:13 pm
How about an ultimate 128gb sdcard to rule them all? You know, then you could swap between devices... Even keeping saves, folder structure, etc..

Regarding the design of the xd,... No color could save it  ???

If I already didn't order a 16GB model I would consider it but looking at how you can buy extra storage pretty cheap not that big a deal, more storage is great and the RED XD looks great.

Had called GPD. This Red 64G GPD XD is still not available. The one you saw is just for advertising. For most companies here, they will be back to work on 8th, Oct. There might be some companies get back sooner. It depends on their policy.

I think they should make it more storage for Android stuff is always a good thing at one point  we thought 8 gb was OK and now we all know better I have a black 32 with a 32 card that I pulled from my g5a filled with my roms I likely will not be upgrading to this one
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: Web8bits on October 04, 2015, 10:06:49 am
According to GPD, the 64 GB Red version was a special run production for her own aliexpress shop, not available for other resellers like me, willgoo, etc., perhaps the second run production of this console will be available for all resellers around the globe.

To be honest, my model is just a 16 GB and I have more than enough, I use a microSD for almost everything, and I only play a couple of android games.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 05, 2015, 10:43:48 am
Well I've ordered one.

GPD currently have a $10 (or ?6.71) coupon, however the Alipay system isn't like Paypal and there was no way to use it at checkout so unfortunately I paid full price. I've messaged them requesting to cancel it so I can re-order but I don't know how good their customer service is, I'll update on here if they actually answer questions or not.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?

Wait! It might take ages for you to receive it, right? :(
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 06, 2015, 05:33:09 pm
Another 8 days processing time apparently which is ok for me, I'm not in any mad rush to get it as I have a Gameboy, DS and 3DS backlog to play through! I've funded this by repairing and selling faulty consoles and it will have only cost me around ?60 by the time the last one is sold so the price isn't a massive concern.

For anybody wanting to use the $10 coupon with Aliexpress you need to click on the coupon and then select something from the GPD store rather than using it at checkout like eBay/PayPal. You need to use a PC for this as I couldn't do it on my phone, checkout with Alipay is really quick too so make sure everything is right before clicking ok as there wasn't a confirmation screen like with eBay/PayPal.

Post by: need2burn on October 08, 2015, 06:11:02 pm
One of these companies should come up with a dual micro SD solution, or perhaps a small storage spot for multiple extra cards. I personally have a PSP-3000 with an adapter that gets me 2 micro sd cards for a total of 128gb. That thing is full as it is, and that can't emulate everything these new devices can... especially when we're gonna probably see some devices soon running PS2/dreamcast/gamecube well.

Personally, I'd love to see a Windows-based pocket game system with a badass mobile card like the new X1. Windows just because emulation seems to be more mature and plus you have a huge backlog of other PC games. Idk, kinda rambled off-topic a bit.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: on October 08, 2015, 08:55:58 pm
If you're going to need this amount of storage, you're better off with cloud storage. Just open an account on Mega and upload some of your data there, that should give you 50 GB more than you currently have with no obligation what-so-ever.

But if you want a serious mobile gaming machine, nothing you want can be gotten at the size you're asking for, we're still not there - even for Gamecube. But, that's not saying it isn't possible - seeing as streaming is maturing, you can pair a device like a GPD XD with a gaming laptop that can be in your backpack or somewhere else. That will allow you both greater portability and power, but will be very expensive, and not as portable as just a handheld.

Well mine is on its way, got shipping confirmation this morning. Just a quick note to AliExpress buyers - you might want to extend the buyer protection time as this was shipped a while after ordering leaving under a month for their protection scheme. I've requested to extend mine for 7 days which should cover it.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: SONY on October 17, 2015, 12:25:26 pm
So, what's the total now after you extended it?
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 17, 2015, 02:24:01 pm
Should be 7 days extra on top of almost a month, according to GPD it'd being sent via courier now anyway so I may not need the extra time.

I cannot wait to get mine because I'm gonna use mine for nes,snes,n64,gb/gbc/gba,ps1,psp,dreamcast and android games. I love my vita but this is gonna be my new travel partner because I love the style and how portable it is and what it can do. So far the only thing I saw I might not like about it is the clicking shoulder buttons but other than that I think I'm gonna love it.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 17, 2015, 06:19:38 pm
Yeah one of the reasons I sold my G5A was that it wasn't portable enough, the screen wasn't adequate for watching video and there wasn't much storage even with a 64gb MicroSD so having original Android games were a compromise. The XD seems to solve all these problems and I love the clamshell design and XL size.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: tonyp1987 on October 17, 2015, 10:34:59 pm
I cannot wait to get it because the first game I'm gonna play is Zelda oot n64. I'm a huge Zelda fan can wait to play most of all the Zelda games on the gpd xd besides the GameCube and wii versions. It's a list of games I'm gonna play when I get it from Zelda,Mario,tekken, dead or alive, dbz, shooter games and rpg games. I'm to excited to wait but hopefully I can get the money soon to get it.

Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 20, 2015, 07:20:32 pm
Yup it's nice, will do a family shot tomorrow with the XD, 3DS XL and the DSi XL.

Seems really well built apart from the hinge slightly pushing the plastic on the right trigger when it opens, if this doesn't ease up over time I'll open it up and sort it.

Screen is lovely and very responsive, buttons are nice especially the clicky triggers and the dpad is very good. Have no idea where the complaints about the dpad come from as I find it very easy to use. Only used the sticks fleetingly with N64 but they feel good.

Screen seems to be under 60hz though so hopefully this gets sorted in a firmware update, might already have been fixed. Should make a nice gaming portable and a pocket Kodi machine.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 20, 2015, 11:20:23 pm
Found out why the plastic was bending slightly at the right trigger - there are no screws holding it together! Looks like GPD thought plastic retaining clips would do a good enough job but obviously with the painted ones they need some help from screws. Had a root in my parts box and put a spare DS screw in each corner where the triggers are and this has sorted it.

Weird oversight but sorted in 1 minute. I think it was just the strain of the hinge which was causing the plastic to slightly flex, there's nothing pushing against the plastic so screwing it down should cause no problems.

It looks much better in the flesh as my phone camera flash makes it look quite gaudy, it's a deeper red colour than the picture. It cost ?140 with DHL shipping although I didn't use the coupon which would have knocked ?6.71 off. It's more than I'd usually pay but I like  a lot of storage.

...dpad is very good. Have no idea where the complaints about the dpad come from as I find it very easy to use.

This must of been an early batch problem as I have bought mine recently and I love the dpad, maybe im just mushy mad.

(no creaky hinge either!)
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on October 21, 2015, 11:42:10 am
Well mine isn't particularly clicky, it's quite soft but very precise. The only thing taking time to adjust to is the face buttons as for me they are a little off from where my right thumb falls. Not uncomfortable but means I sometimes press the wrong button, I suppose it won't take long to get used to it.

My hinge does creak a bit when, a little when I open it to the 2nd locked position (the most common one) and a bit more at 180 degrees (which I never use) so no biggie. I'm glad that the hinge is solid and can put up with a tiny creaking noise. There are no whining sounds on mine either and everything seems really well put together, well once I'd put two screws in the empty holes that is!

It's the first Android console I've had which is built to such a standard, I'm liking it a lot so far.

There has never been a problem really. The dpad on mine (very early) is incredibly accurate, and very easy to use, and responds really fast. People would just prefer a less mushy dpad and more importantly, a bit more less deep down recessed in the plastic.

but it has always worked very well.

I have a few questions about the different GPD XD models...

-Looking at them, are there any differences besides color and internal storage (16gb, 32gb, 64gb)...? Couldn't I just buy an sd card for the black 16gb model and it would be the exact same as the more expensive model? Or are there differences in specs?

-Any suggestions on the best place to buy one? I know WiiGoo, GeekBuying, and AliExpress (GPD store) have them, any differences between the quality of the product or shopping experience?

Thanks!
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?

If you want it for emulation and small Android games then the 16gb will be fine as you can put ISOs and roms on an SD. However if you want to play bigger Android games then I would say get the 32gb at least. Modern Combat, GTA etc can be 1-2gb each so your internal storage quickly fills up and there's no built in storage swap like on older GPD consoles. The high res version of Bard's Tale is about 3.5gb for instance.

Hi guys,
I tried to buy the 64GB GPD XD, but the official shops are telling me it's out of stock right now for both 64GB and 32GB models.
Does anyone know where to get it, if possible with a buyer protection system like on Aliexpress ?
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: eragon2890 on November 17, 2015, 04:07:24 pm
which official shops ? The one on aliexpress run directly by GPD seems to have it in stock, with a discount plus a free sticker of your choice (if you want) with every order, in fact : http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/GPD-XD-RK3288-Quad-Core-2G-64G-Support-128GB-TF-card-5-IPS-Handheld-Game-Console/1281164_32477172748.html

Their feedback is very good, and so are my experiences with them plus other people on this forum (I believe it was @LemonWinks ? ) so I can recommend you to buy it from there :)

Unless they say it's out of stock off course. But it would seem to be available.

Whatever you do, do NOT buy from geekbuying!! If you get a working one it's fine and they're cheap, but if there's any issue, you can apparently drop dead as far as they are concerned... just a warning.
Title: Re: GPD XD - Red 64GB - Anyone interested?
Post by: lemmywinks on November 17, 2015, 05:57:33 pm
I would hold off on buying from the GPD store, they might not be as reliable as they first seemed. They asked me to send mine back due to a fault and offered to cover return postage, so far they haven't covered return postage and ignored my last message requesting it.

They usually message back the next morning without fail (UK time) and I got no reply to my last message, wish I'd have just kept the faulty one now as trying to sort customs fees out with DHL (who invoiced me after I'd already returned it) and trying to get a replacement from GPD has been too much like hard work. I had hoped dealing with the GPD directly would be better but so far they aren't much different to any other reseller, the only difference is that if I'd been ignored by Geekbuying I would actually have a working XD. Currently I'm ?168 down (plus ?7 insurance I paid on the return postage) and I have nothing to show for it.

Also if anybody from the UK wants one of these then get the seller to mark the value as under ?135 as otherwise you get an extra customs charge on top of VAT and DHL's fee, this is why the charges on the 64gb version have been so high.

which official shops ? The one on aliexpress run directly by GPD seems to have it in stock, with a discount plus a free sticker of your choice (if you want) with every order, in fact : http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/GPD-XD-RK3288-Quad-Core-2G-64G-Support-128GB-TF-card-5-IPS-Handheld-Game-Console/1281164_32477172748.html

Their feedback is very good, and so are my experiences with them plus other people on this forum (I believe it was @LemonWinks ? ) so I can recommend you to buy it from there :)

Unless they say it's out of stock off course. But it would seem to be available.

Whatever you do, do NOT buy from geekbuying!! If you get a working one it's fine and they're cheap, but if there's any issue, you can apparently drop dead as far as they are concerned... just a warning.
Indeed, that's the one I contacted, they are out of stock for both 32GB and 64GB models :(

I would hold off on buying from the GPD store, they might not be as reliable as they first seemed. They asked me to send mine back due to a fault and offered to cover return postage, so far they haven't covered return postage and ignored my last message requesting it.

They usually message back the next morning without fail (UK time) and I got no reply to my last message, wish I'd have just kept the faulty one now as trying to sort customs fees out with DHL (who invoiced me after I'd already returned it) and trying to get a replacement from GPD has been too much like hard work. I had hoped dealing with the GPD directly would be better but so far they aren't much different to any other reseller, the only difference is that if I'd been ignored by Geekbuying I would actually have a working XD. Currently I'm ?168 down (plus ?7 insurance I paid on the return postage) and I have nothing to show for it.

Also if anybody from the UK wants one of these then get the seller to mark the value as under ?135 as otherwise you get an extra customs charge on top of VAT and DHL's fee, this is why the charges on the 64gb version have been so high.
Did you use the official stores on aliexpress or another official store?
Anyway here in Japan i don't have any problems of sending fees or custom fees usually, and aliexpress has a good buyers protection system :)

Yes, all models use same firmware and is unified in all of them.

The AliExpress store.

Unfortunately the buyers' protection isn't worth shit when it takes two weeks to arrive (pre-order) and then GPD take a further two weeks to request a return, the buyer protection is long gone. I asked GPD for an extension and they refused.

So far I have no XD, no refund and it has cost me money to send it back so while you may have had no problems with them please appreciate that they have lied to me about covering return shipping so my experiences are different.

Well I was about to ask if I can trust Aliexpress... I guess I got my answer  ??? :(

Any Idea where I can order one from, or do I wait? I think I can trust eBay, but I will have to overpay.

WTF!!!! I really want one of there things. Amazon has them but the are estimated between Dec 22 and Jan 17. Might as well wait til the next year. Price will probably drop.

eBay is the only way.

I recently purchased a blue, 32gb unit through ebay & it was a very smooth transaction. My advice is to ask the correct questions to the seller prior to purchasing... for example:

A) Is the physical unit defective in any way?
B) Is the package complete with the original manufactured items?
C) Why are you selling the unit? (to discover if there's an odd reason the seller is attempting to make the sale)
D) Any major scratches/dents/cracks in the screen/deformities with the unit?

Again, if you ask these kinds of questions & the seller responds with positive remarks about the unit, you should NOT have any reason to worry. Remember, it's ebay... if after the sale you receive the unit & it is in fact defective, you can open a case to dispute the sale & ebay should be able to reimburse you for the sale, etc.

It's wise to ask those kinds of questions above so that you cover yourself in the event you receive a faulty unit. Also, Ebay sellers typically post good, quality photos of the items they are selling. Make sure to look closely at the pics & zoom in to verify there aren't any blemishes on or around the unit.

Finally, be sure to ask these questions quickly as others around the internet may be interested in a BUY IT NOW option. Once you receive your positive remarks back from the seller & the pictures look fine to you, go for the purchase. Do NOT buy the unit any higher than a sale price of $150... that's the price they go for new these days.    :P

Good luck!

Well apparently the refund is being processed, still no answer about return shipping though after asking repeatedly so it looks like GPD lie just as much as other stores. AliExpress deal with the refund so AFAIK it will just be for the initial cost of the console.

Pretty pissed off as if I had known it would cost me money to return I would have just kept it. I've had GPD consoles before and have always recommended them to people, not doing that any more.

I understand that you are pissed off, I would be pissed too if I were you.

But let me ask you one question. You said you buy it from the AliExpress store. Which one?
I mean you can buy the GPD products in many different stores in AliEpress website, including two official GPD stores.

Concerning your return fees, it is sad but that's basically how any online company works (especially chinese ones).
I mean even on amazon, on local stores in your own country, you will almost never get the return shipping fees back in any way. That's rarely included in the warranty.
By buying a cheap product from a chinese shop, you understand the risks and all. If you don't want any of those trouble, you should try to find a local shop instead.

Also you said the AliEpress buyer protection system is worthless, well you got your refund thanks to that system don't you?
Do you think you would even get a refund of your device on a website without a proper buyer protection system??

From my experience, AliExpress is the best and most secure website to buy those kind of chinese products, you just have to be extra careful and knowing the risks of buying in china.

Despite the fact I had to send back my first defective GPD XD too, I still think GPD is one of the best chinese company for android products.
I mean beside them making really good products (especially if you consider the cheap price), how many chinese company actually listen for their customers when there is a software or hardware issue, and release a fix asap? They are the only one I know doing that.
I just don't think that people managing the shops and the actually GPD company are the same people.

I am worried that this deal is too good to be true. Help!

I bought it from the GPD store, the return address was GPD themselves not an external company. Also if you read the post I wrote then you will see that they requested a return and offered to cover return shipping up to $30 (it was around $28), since then they have received the item and the refund is processing yet they avoid questions abut the return shipping despite offering to pay it. Where I come from that's called lying, so if they continue to do this they are liars. If they do refund the shipping then I will mention it on here.

Also if I had bought and returned it with a different seller then I would have already got my refund as I would have paid with Paypal. With Alipay they hang on to your money (earning them interest) for 7-10 business days. I would be in exactly the same situation as I am now, only I would actually have the ?140 back instead of it being in a high interest account belonging to Alipay....

I would never have sent it back if they hadn't offered to cover return shipping as the fault wasn't major, to be honest I would have been happy with ?20 partial refund which is pretty much the cost of posting it back.
