HSG X5A Tablet
I recently received a HSG X5A-G tablet for a project of mine.
It is actually quite nice, apart from a couple of hiccups with the battery meter (more about this below).
Sold as: A1CS X5A / G11, It actually is a X5A-G
Even thought the battery meter on it cannot be trusted (it never gives 100% and quickly drops to 60% where it stays for a while until it drops to 10% where it stays forever before shutting down) I can get 4-6 hours out of it with WiFi on.
The main issue is that the inaccurate reading seems to be software based. As Chinese manufacturers do not release their Android source (violating the GPL) it can be hard to fix until HSG releases their Kernel source. The closest thing we have now, is the Telechips source code, which does not boot the tablet - it can produce useful modules though.
