Here are some benchmarks using fw 1.1
Total Score 11167

In the bar chart the V972 comes in under the Asus Transformer Prime.

The 1080 MP4 surround avi, H264 .mov, and the MSMP4 stereo 1080 files of the Big Buck Bunny movie all play well in 4K VideoPlayer (I can't get the ogg version to play). Movies played from the micro SD card.
Jumping/scrubbing to different points doesn't phase the player and playback continues straight away without any blocking or errors. If you keep jumping around the app eventually stops responding for a short while but the video kept playing without a problem.
The battery has just lasted about 4.5 hours from a full charge. I hour last night, 3.5 hours this morning.
In sleep mode over night there did not appear to be any power loss. Battery was at 73% when I closed it last night and it was still at 73% this morning. Screen is set to 25% brightness. This was only the second charge though.
Wifi is OK - It is at about 1 bar less than my laptop. Have tried a few different places now. At Starbucks I had 4 bars on my laptop and 3 on the Onda. In the office I have 5 bars on the laptop and 4 on the Onda.
I am very happy with the performance but concerned about the battery life. I am hoping it improves after a few more charges.
A 4 hour battery life makes the device almost unusable for me outside of home.
Thanks for the benchmark results. The GPU looks very good especially considering the 1 Ghz clock speed and screen resolution. I think the A31 is supposed to run at 1.3 or 1.4 Ghz although it seems to be clocked at 1 Ghz in both the V812 and V972. I read on another forum that a future firmware upgrade is supposed to increase the clock speed. We will see but this might also affect battery life.
For comparison I ran the same benchmarks on the Ramos W30HD (Exynos 4412) with 1920 x 1200 retina screen. The CPU and RAM results on the Ramos seem much better whereas the GPU results seem much worse than the Onda. Also note that the clock speed on the Ramos is running at a max of 1.4Ghz compared to 1Ghz on the Onda.Ramos W30HD benchmark resultsAntutu:

Fwiw Quadrant seems to confirm these results with a strong CPU but weaker GPU.Quadrant Standard

The GPU on the A31 again seems better here especially considering the clock speed difference.
4.5 hours is on the very low side. I just realized this tablet is high resolution. That will knock off about 35% of battery life. Also, A31 seems to use more power than RK3066. Could be it spends lots of time on the high CPU frequencies??? For instance, my RK3066 tablet spends most of the time @ 252 MHz (73.67%) - usually 65-75%. 2nd is 1.4 GHz w/6.78%. 3rd is 816 MHz with 6.32%. Would have to check whether V972 was clocking down or not when idle.
Also, almost all tablets I have seen lose power in sleep mode. Maybe V972 does not or maybe the battery meter needed some mins. to adjust. Better to shut off instead to get the real total use time.
Hi Nickos-V, Yes the battery results don't seem great
Wonder if they will improve over time. You could be right about the frequency governing.
FYI here's the Ramos results. Mr Turtle if you run Android System Info from the Play Store and look at the System tab and expand CPU you should be able to see what frequencies your tablet is using as well as the range and current frequency.
On the Ramos after a full charge I am down 41% after 3.5 hours mixed usage with screen on 3/4 brightness and wifi on all the time (it's running Android 4.0.4 btw).
