Thinking of getting a JXD S5800? - sunflowers - 11-18-2014 06:10 AM

Any idea about this? Who had one? I only have JXD S7800 and so far i love the device. But i wanna buy a s5800 as a Chrismas gift for my friend. I find a post about it and seems that it's a nice device. Help my out.. Thanks.

Why would you buy one that is technically slower than the one you have?

If you're working under a budget, that's the one to get.

This is a thread I created asking about available gamephones:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/android-devices/looking-for-a-new-gamephone/

In short:
JXD S5800 (MTK6582) - $130. There is no mention of any software or hardware issues, beside a d-pad issue with some of the older models, so you shouldn't encounter it.
Much i5 (MTK6589) - $240. Basically the same as the S5800, with a more dodgy firmware. Has frame rate issues and thus cannot run emulation that well.
Much G2 (MTK6589) - $130. Doesn't have enough buttons for some emulators. I didn't hear much about it, but it's supposed to be decent.
Much W1 (MTK6592) - $300. Has the best performance of all devices, but there have been some reports of unresponsive controls. For that price, you could get both a gamephone and gaming tablet, so it's kind of ridiculous.
Much i6 (Probably an MTK6595, MTK6752 or MTK6795) - A device that is supposed to be announced in the next month or so. Don't have any data on it as of yet.

Also, all of the devices run at 720p, with the exception of JXD S5800 - which runs at 540p.

The best phone currently, performance wise, is the Much W1. However, since it's very expensive, the more practical choice would be the JXD S5800. It's the cheapest, has good controls, and its firmware doesn't suck. Keep in mind that most Android apps are designed to run at a native 60hz, and both Much i5 and Much G2 run at 52hz, so even though they have better screen resolution, they cannot play anything that requires audio/video sync well.

Thank you so much for your reply. It's so useful for me. I have no enough money to buy the Much W1, so i think i'll get a JXD S5800. lol
