Anonymous 06/24/14(Tue)00:02 UTC+1 No.1710985 Report

I've heard they are. I personally use a Shield though.

JXD S7300b is a good one. D-Pad can be kind of wonky, fortunately the analog sticks are good. Button membranes for ABXY are clicky and delicious as fuck. Start/Select and volume buttons are cheap, but haven't failed yet. Screen resolution is retarded and dpi on screen blows, but for vidya it is fine. Battery life blows and gets slightly better with custom ROMs. Runs hot on left side, will make your hands sweaty. Will run practically anything you throw at it. Definitely worth a buy if you can get it for $150 or less.

If you want a cheap little Android emulator buy an Xperia Play for like $20. If you want something kick ass buy a Shield for $200. Everything in between is just some compromise.

I wouldn't recommend them. I owned two of them at different times and they both died. I suspect the shitty chargers fried the batteries.

I've had a GPD G5A for months and have had no real problems with it so far.

I have a JXD S7300b and once I found a good custom firmware I think it's overall a good machine that has some problems.

- For some reason mine crashes after a few minutes of continuous play right after you turn it on. Restarting it fixes this problem until you turn it off again. Annoying, but not really tragic.

- Battery drains fairly quick while in standby. Can't leave it unplugged for more than a day

- Left analog and D-Pad have same binds.

This is also just a personal gripe, but it's a bit too big for a handheld. I think I'd have rather went with the smaller model which is comparable in size to a PSP.

I'm getting one of these this week. Anything I should know?

The battery life is pretty short, but since the charger isn't a piece of garbage like the 7800's, it doesn't really matter. You can also charge it via USB, which is a plus.

Also, the start and select buttons are positioned in a pretty wonky way, but you get used to it.

anyone here try the jxd s5800 ?? It's smaller than the 7300 and also functions as a phone. I'd like to ge tone

I used to have a S7300, currently use a S7800. I have a lot of fun with it, though it has its hiccups

>Doubles as a tablet: can comfortably flip it vertical and read books, surf the web, or do whatever else a tablet can do on it
>Decent battery life, seems to be about 20% an hour of constant gameplay, more if I'm just reading or something else
>Pretty decent speed on anything. Anything I've thrown at it runs fine with the appropriate emulators and minor frame skipping. PPSSPP with 2D RPGs rarely dips below 40FPS. Emulates everything I want with no problems.

>Chinese product means occasional problems. Mine has a weird quirk where the touchscreen stops working when the battery drops to around 50%. I have no idea why this happens, but I can still navigate around with the button controls when this happens, and whenever I charge it back up it works fine. Ultimately it doesn't bother me, but it could be a huge problem for others
> Really needs community firmware ASAP. The stock firmware is pretty shitty and has a bunch of bloatware you can't get rid of.
> I've heard terrible things about the chargers that come with it. When I used it, the charging port on my device got pretty fucking hot. I replaced that ASAP.

Ultimately, I'm very happy with my JXD, but there are minor annoyances about it that could ruin other people's experiences.

I have an S5110 and use my S7300 almost every day lately. I remember a ton of threads about it last year shortly after this board was made. They're good for anything up to Dreamcast on consoles and DS/PSP on handhelds. GPD's devices are generally considered better these days but I've never actually used one.

Bottom line: even the non smart consoles on the website are worth it. JXD is one of the few good buys from China. You will love any model. Don't low ball it. Get one that costs at least $70. It will do anything you need it to.
