Id like to thank you for sharing this work with us, it works better and battery life has suffer an improvement.

This is the first post I have ever written regarding Chinese tech.

I would just like to think you guys for your work.

When I first received my tablet five months ago it was what I expected for 220 dollars:

3-4 dead pixels,

Headphone jack broken,

Cracking case in one corner,

Laggy and stuttery interface,

However it had a beautiful screen which was the only reason I bought it for.

And overall, I was quite satisfied with the purchase since the screen made up for everything else and after all it was only 220 dollars and it fulfilled its purpose as a PDF reader. 

Now with this ROM it is a pleasure to use and is a device i would readily reccomend to anyone for the price, despite the broke headphone jack, the dead pixels and the poor quality of construction. I really did not expect a powervr sgx 544mp2 to be able tohandle this resolution more than decently. And the processor despite being 1,1 (over clocked) A7 isn't terribly slow, it feels quite similar to my rk3066 1,4ghz dual core A9 in my Hyundai 7".

And miracast works without complaints in sync with my imito mx2 ;)

Overall if you can live with a non perfect product (maybe dead pixels and other technical minor defects) this tablet is awesome for the price! I love it (since we don't have the cheap Google products here in Denmark) and I would reccomend this tablet without a doubt.

As for battery life this device handles around 3 hours of screen on time which is better than my galaxy s3 so that really doesn't mean it is good (it still sick a, but so do other known devices) ;)

But you better have solid nerves and the willingness to surf the web quite a bit and do your homework if you want Chinese devices like this one :-)  

 

Thanks to arc tablet for supporting us poorer consumers and helping us get support  for (and the most out of) our cheap not as popular android devices ;)  

I am looking forward to replacing my sgs3 with an 5.7+ inch Chinese device, after my experience with this tablet (and my other devices). any suggestions for good 5.7"+?

Would just like to say...

(i know the ipad 4 has much superior hardware)

but i just ran a comparisson, and the onda with this firmware is faster at loading youtube than the ipad 4, with about 0.5-4 seconds... not too shabby.

 

Screen rotation of 180 degrees is also faster on the onda.

 

Web browsing is faster on ipad 4.

 

Haven't tested games or app load times, but the A31 suprises. (i know gaming and 3d is hands down better on the ipad) but these results really suprised me, and i just wanted to share them...

 

I don't understand why though since A6x has a custom A15 architecture vs A7 at lower frequency.

 

Maybe it is due to apples animation speeds, which, tbh, are really starting to annoy me. Everything is so smooth, but SOOOOOO slow. Scrolling is smooth but slow (need to swipe 3-4 times to scroll same distance as 1 on android (onda)) also opening any app is so goddamn smooth but SLOOOW!

 

i don't know how apple ppl manage these ridiculously slow animations. Compared with android it is exactly like putting all your speeds to 5x in developer options...

Hi Admin,

 

I've just received my Onda V972 v2 today, it came with Jellybean 4.1.1

 

What i'm wondering is whether i can just put this update on it or do i need to put others on it before hand o i can get it up to 4.2?

 

Thanks

You don't need to install all the updates one by one, just use latest (see post #1) and you will be up to date.

Cheers.

Hi again Admin

 

Is there a fix for the crackly sound that you get when using earphones or is that more a hardware issue?

Thanks
