Can you reupload images please? I just see a chinese child face and a lot of chinese words :-(
Done

Thank you very much!

It really looks as a 5110B with a GamePad sticker :-P

It's exactly that, a 5110B with a RK3188. Have in mind that 5110B was a device by GPD/softwin that was sold under the brand JXD.

This device will be cheaper than g5a (probably same price as 5110B), so they look that target. Users that don't want to spend  too much for a decent device.

Both on sale now on willgoo!!!! I am still thinking if I should get GPD G58 or a Nvidia Tegra Note 7 lol. My iPad mini retina got stolen back in January :/ and I've been looking for a portable emulator to replace my psp. I know android is better for that than ipad (expandable storage plus no need for jailbreak bc the apps are on playstore) and since I've been trying to see if I should get another ipad or get the Nvidia Tegra Note 7. The GPD G58 is so tempting tho I just wonder is it a waste to get that and an iPad mini where the Tegra Note would function for both a tablet and emulation device (of course with Game vice controller coming out!).

Hi!

I have been checking these things and they look very sweet!

Still, I have two questions:
- The DPAD of the G58 comes in a single piece of plastic (like S5110B) or in two pieces (like S5110)? That is very important for fighting games :)
- Since the DPAD of the Q88 looks a lot like the one in the G5A I will ask those that have it, is it THAT bad for (hardcore) fighting games? Will it broke after 1000 hadokens?  ???

I play fighting games with the g5a pad without any issues, but q88 is pretty different from what I have been said, so don't know if it's better or worse.

the g58 seems exact to 5110B, so I suppose it's one piece d-pad, but cannot say for sure.

Does the quad core 5" one have an IPS screen?
If bluetooth really is on those devices, it might be an interesting device. Though I couldn't stand the G5A's battery life (especially with a 3000mah battery and a 480p screen).

I think it's the same as 5110B, so no BT and no IPS to sell at low price I guess.

For me battery time on g5a is fine. 4 hours is more than enough for me at least. My PSvita has same battery life.

I suppose the resolution for the Q88 (dual core) is just 800x480p, right?

Also, don?t you think 3000 mA is just crazy for a 7 incher?

1024x600 according to their webpage (have in mind the model willgoo is selling is the inferior dual core model)

http://www.gpd.hk/product/showproduct.php?lang=en&id=49

No idea about battery. GPD g7 used a 5000 mah so I suppose this should be quite similar, but who knows....

q88+ should be quie similar to gpd g7 in almost everything, it's just a different design (more 7800 like)

Hi again and thanks for your help Skelton  ;)

It is strange, willgoo says the regular Q88 is dual core, with 2800 mA. GDP says it is SINGLE core and no battery and resolution indications  :o

http://www.gpd.hk/product/showproduct.php?lang=en&id=48
http://www.willgoo.com/gpd-q88-dual-core-android-gaming-tablet-7-screen-8gb-p-577.html

For the other one, G58, the resolution is nowhere indicated neither in willgoo or in GPD...

http://www.gpd.hk/product/showproduct.php?lang=en&id=44

Strange to say the least... I am interested in both of them given the price tag, but I would order only one, I want something to replace my good ol' S5110, I want to feel and improvement but I don't want to expend a lot of money...

Confirmed: Q88 is dual core. Both Q88 and G58 has the resolution " 800*480". Later GPD will updated these information on their site. We just got this information from them.

I was probably too overanxious and ordered a Q88, I suppose I could not resist the price...  ???

I will try to post a review at the forum when I get my hands on it, if there aren't any by that time. I know it is a low end device, I just hope it is not very low quality.

Do you think this will handle DS and PSP games properly (no frameskip, I don't mind having no sound)? And Dreamcast? (that will surely be too much but it may worth asking)

EDIT: Thanks for the answer Willgoo. By the way, you have an order  ;)

I have my doubts, the dual core comes with a RK3026, which is less powerful than an amlogic-mx..... But never saw an rk3026 in action

Hey,

I have just noticed. They have "downgraded" the Q88's CPU at the GPD website. Yesterday it was 1.5 and today it is 1.2 Also, they have deleted the reference to 8GB in the description.

I think I will send an enquiry to willgoo... If that is true I will upgrade to a G54 or a G7...

Skelton, I have a 5110B and I like device, so I am thinking in getting G58 as a replacement for it. But I have one concern:
Will you support g58 as you made with G5a? The fact a device has your ROMS is a definite factor before ordering one. Thanks in advance

I don't know. That depends on GPD.

I want to get to it but I need advice which would you recommend I buy from, Willgoo or Geekbuying? Geekbuying has $10 off until May 8th or something but I read everywhere that people say not to buy from there is that true?
