Sounds pretty beefy!
Thanks to ThePhawx
Edit: amended title, the Win 3 is a separate device.
A bit smaller than the Smach Z? Why compare it with a system that has a totally different form factor?
What do you expect from a youtuber?
I assumed that was a joke, given how big all the prototypes of the smachz were up until recently, but the stuff they were showing off at that recent trade show was a little more svelte, so maybe my joke sensor is a bit off.
Pretty sure the Win 3 is still going to be a separate thing, so I think title should be changed.
@AVahne Yes, they are separate things. And yes, the title is wrong
Damn with the amount of the time the Pyra's been in development for, they're already going on their 3rd alteration
Pyra is in the same boat as Smach Z in terms of development progress, and Smach Z is pretty shady.
It will be a real downfall if PGS gets released before Pyra
Pyra = Quality > GPD Wins/Pockets = Quantity & much lesser quality
PYRA = Not Released Yet = Quality Unknown = Quality Comparisons Are Meaningless
The case quality of the GPD Win 2 is awesome, but so far, it seems A LOT of batteries fail for all GPD Devices (except for the GPD XD+) after a year or so, which is a bit concerning.
GPD have changed the battery supplier starting with the MicroPC. They finally got access to a company in china known for quality batteries.
Batteries that work? Competition sure is heating up.
I mean, even ED can't claim batteries that work until he actually ships them. I have my fingers crossed though.
We're using the same company as before, and most Pandora batteries from 2013 (some even from 2011) still work fine
That's good to know and hopefully true. I know many of my customers refuse to buy any more GPD products from me as they had that problem with the GPD Win 1 and GPD Pocket... and batteries aren't available anymore.
It's also an issue for distributors - I had to fully refund quite a lot of units as I couldn't return them to a working state again due to the lack of replacement batteries
My original Pandora battery is still working fine and I got that along with my Pandora back in May 2010. I did purchase a new battery a while back but haven't needed to switch over to it yet.
Pyra(s) launched during these years: 0
GPDs launched during the same years: 4 (maybe more?)
Number of team members working on the Pyra: around 4 - 7
Number of team members working on GPD stuff: Probably more than 30
Quality over Quantity = Pyra
This is something we will have to find out.
We do not know yet.
True. While I'm trying my best, I can only do as much as the companies did offer, as I simply haven't the funds to switch companies in worst case to make sure we have the best quality.
And the GPD Win 2 is of top-notch quality (except for the batteries).
