For my money, the g5a is the best so far!  I have zero complaints.  If they have a psp form factor with all of the same specs, it would probably be a decent machine, but I doubt it would have l2 and r2 shoulder buttons.  The analog sliders also would not be "clickable" either.  That would lose you 4 mappable buttons.  If you don't mind the bigger form factor from the hand grips, I'd consider the g5a, which already has great custom firm by Skelton.

It depends on how you plan on using it. A lot of old games and Android games don't use L2/R2 or L3/R3 so it doesn't really bother me much. G5A is probably more comfortable and better for playing on a TV, though. Seems like G58 is better for the traveler and G5A is better for the console gamer, even though they are both handhelds.

I think you are right about the travel.  I have the JXD s5110b and it is smaller and easier to find a zip-up style case that fits well.  I just like the nice analogs on the G5a so much better!  I have connected it to my TV a couple of times and it is neat, but I only have a 6 foot long mini-hdmi cord and that leaves me sitting too close to the TV for comfortable gaming.  When I connect to a TV it would be to stream amazon prime instant video movies.

I want to get the GPD G58 but can't decide between Willgo and Geekbuying. Can anyone tell me if Geekbuying is trustworthy? I see a lot of negative stuff about them around the web saying they are a scam but how are they still up lol.

I'm an example... avoid Geekbuying or start learning how to fix a console yourself.

Is there any idea or information available about a possible release date for Q88+ quad core version?

Thank you very much.

Buy G7. At the moment, there is no news about any new version of 7" GPD console, but maybe next few weeks we will get first information about next generation of GPD devices...

Q88+ should be available in some weeks, but not sure about an exact date exactly. It depends how much you want to wait.

New devices with RK32XX, I wouldn't expect them until August/September minimum I think, unless Kelvin from GPD tell us something different.

Good. So, Happy, is q88+ a Rk3188 or a RK3188-T?. I have no problem overlocking it, but if it's a RK3188 the better.

IPS screen for sure?

Sounds great!

But are there any more information available?
Where to buy?
Photos from the device?

Such things.....

i'm really excited with Q88+, but a guy just uploaded a video on youtube to show that he has a problem with the buttons on left side of the gamepad...

im planning to get one too, but I dont understand if this is an emulator or isolated issue since the posted impressions were quiet good and Skelton would definitely have caught this if it were an issue.
