    I ordered my Chuwi V88 at Geekbuying and it was delivered within 2 weeks, which I think is acceptable for freeshipping via airmail.
    First thing I noticed was that the seal of the package was broken and that apparently someone had been working at it considering the small damage at the screen at one of the corners. As long as that surgery benefits me it's OK with me and I must say that I am surprised by the value for money I get.
    the 7.9 inch display suits me well and it's weight and thickness is a relief when I compare it with my Toshiba AT300.

    One of the first apps I installed was AnTuTu and you see that it has got a nice overall score.

    After a few days of fiddling around with it I decided to flash Oma's Custom ROM to it.
    I flashed it succesfully and the outcome is as next pictures show (notice the spoof to Nexus 7).

    Only minus I can see so far is that it got no Gorilla glass and I would have liked a way to charge via USB, but overall I'm a happy man with this tablet PC.

    After I tried another 2A charging adaptor, the loading time went to normal values. So the adaptor Geekbuying delivered seperately was the course of the long loadingtimes.

    It's been a while since you got the device - how would you judge it now!?
    How is the battery life!? The screen?

    I still think it's an attractive prized alternative to established brands like Samsung or Apple and the RK3188 processor together with the 2Gb Ram does a good job, especially after I flashed the Timeless V88 Edition 2 CR (AnTuTu score of 19233, spoofed as a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3).
    Remains the minuses I already mentioned like the screen that nowadays looks like this:

    In practice, however, I do not notice the scratches.

    Fully charged, I can play games like Real Racing e.g. for hours (approx. 4) and the charging takes about 2 hours then.
