Good, massively better than my zenithink tablet. I haven't had any drop outs from holding the tablet plus I can use it in my garden which even my phone sometimes can't! There isn't any drop in speed either but I do have a N rated router.

Hi all,

This is my first post. I ordered 2 units of Onda Vi30 dual core from aliexpress at discounted price (during promotion period) about a week ago. The parcel was delayed due to the recent typhoon in Hong Kong. Looking forward to receiving it and testing it out soon. Glad to hear the positive feedbacks from the new owners. FYI, there is also a nice original case by Onda too which was designed to fit Onda Vi30 Ultimate and Dual Core (info here). The only mismatch is the camera hole at the back since Vi30 ultimate has back camera, which is a minor issue. I ordered a couple of that from aliexpress too.

The updates seems pretty frequent at the onda site, which is a good sign. The latest update (v1.1) was date 23rd July 2012. Here is the direct link. The only problem is the site is a bit slow, hence the download takes ages.

Dear wildwilly,

I have yet to receive my tablets. The seller told me that they will put the instructions on how to update the firmware with the package. I believe there are some information online such as those for Onda Vi40 dual core (similar except for 9.7 inch screen). But I would not dare to pass on any information to you until I have tried it out myself. Generally, it should be something like placing the firmware in the microSD card and then boot into recovery mode (fully shut down and power up by holding down home key and the power button at the same time). I should be receiving them in about 2 days time and once I successfully updated the ROM, I will post the instructions here.

regards,

zychen

Hay wild,

http://file2.mydrive...D_v1.0-0702.rar

That's the latest beta firmware, if you have any problems flashing the firmware let me know mate!


Edit: I see someone has already put this up, yes you extract the zip to external SD card, turn your tablet off. Then turn it on again whilst holding the home button too. Then choose update in the menu. Be aware this will wipe your tablets hard drive or movies, music etc so put them on your external sd card or on your pc beforehand

the retailer i bought it in updated the firmware to june or july, i cant exactly remember. i Just bought it, a week ago.
i bought it specificly for 6500mah but im so dissapointed at the battery life.

also wondering if they gave me the right product? ONDA VI30 Dual Core Version Tablet PC Android 4.0 8 Inch HD Screen 8GB Ultra Thin HDMI Camera,is what i bought(6500MAH). the box case is all in chinese.

My ainol novo7 tornado has vibrate and outlast onda vi30 dual core. WTF?

Yeah it sounds like the right one, as for the battery you can reduce the cpu frequancy when notmin use via setcpu or another related app. No it doesn't have vibrate but it didn't dtate that it does, the five point touch means just that. The screen can register 5 individual touches useful for apps that utilise that. But it won't make any apparent difference. Anything else you need help with let me know!

Hi Nathan, I also just got the vi30 dual core.The box i have also is in chinense ,does your box have a yahoo screen shot on it cause if so its prolly the dual core.I hope you bought it from a good seller.I live in the US and made sure thats where my seller is from incase of any issuses.Im having a wifi speed issue,but there is a update that is supposed to take care of this and some other issues.Im just waiting for my seller to mod the update or someone on here to.this is my first tablet.it seems cool expecpt for my wifi upload and down load speed issue.The battery specs i got are 4400 mah.maybe after a couple of battery clcyles it will get better.i aslo read dont charge using usb make sure you charge using the ac cahrger.and like charos said to check your cpu speed and what apps you have running.youll get alot of good info on this site.
