Just about to order a GPD G58
« on: May 18, 2014, 11:18:46 pm »
  Hello (First post on the forums), I've been going through the forums for a few weeks gathering tons of information on various devices, and I think I've made my decision on the G58. It's a newer device, but we'll see how it pans out. I've never owned an android gaming device and I'll be ordering from geekbuying. I'm hoping some custom firmware comes out for it at some point, but either way I'm looking forward to having something portable to use. I considered the GPD G5a, but as a portable device I don't think it's suited for travel. I may invest in a g5a+ when they get released though.

  I'll provide a full review with video of the g58 once I receive it, so if you have any recommendations on things to test, I'm willing to try some stuff out. I hope to contribute to the forums in content and discussion, really been enjoying reading through what the community has to say on things, wish me luck!
Ordered one of those fancy GPD G58 devices. Review soon.

Yeah, I can't really afford a 3DS + Games, and I'm a huge fan of classic gaming, so this looked to be a really strong option for me. I have a high definition webcam (720p) and a nicer condenser microphone (I do audio work), and I'm native English speaking, so I figure I might as well do a thorough review on the device. I'm currently looking for different games to try out. Majora's Mask is one I've picked out (both because it's a good benchmark and because I can test analog controls on it), and I'm sure I'll find a myriad of other games.

I'll try as best as I can to accurately capture the quality of the speaker(s) on the device and, if I can, get my friend to help me out with his fancy high tech video equipment. Might end up being a 720p webcam video, but we'll see.

Just received the device earlier today. Have been toying around with various emulators. Very impressed so far. Will post a quick video soon with a full review coming some time after that.
