My GPD Q9 has been in their factory for repair for the last 4 weeks. They must be pretty busy fixing the XD first batch.
They seem to give other stuff a lower priority right now...
:-( cant you ask them to replace it with a XD for just the price difference? It looks to be better :3
Glad my trusty q9 is still working then, true i have had it for just under 4 months, but i game on it for 4-6 hours/day, from emulators to android, watch my anime via it on the television, read entire manga series on it, use it for browsing, facebook, mail, messenger, study book reading, music, basically as a laptop for avg. 9-10 hours x day( god bless summer break!) then i also take it with me to all the otaku hangouts/events, friends, cosplay meets, etc. I g to about three times per week, to use it in the train :-) so it has been on long journeys in a backpack dozens of times. I think the battery must have already been trough over a 100 full charge cycles.
I also smashed it into thr wood floor once, screen first.
Yet it holds up perfextly well, i am really happy and impressed with it! And after dozens of hours of arcade fighting games, shooters, bullethells and platformers o the snes and such, i can say that so does the dpad. Felt flimsy at first, but is actually sturdy as hell - i play street fighter, kof etd quite often and quite intensively on it. I seriously wish more consoles used this design...
... That probably does not make you feel any better tough :-( i just mean to say (given noone else reported theirs broke yet without dropping itmfirst) there is not a general issue with build quality, which makes me hopefull for the xd :-)
