These are all nice but CPU power is just not there with A7 (not to mention GPU in case of AllWinner). How about using a SD652 (quad A53, quad A72, Adreno 50X) instead and selling it for 100USD or so?

A83T is a really weird choice since to get full CPU performance you would need already liquid cooling. In Android/RemixOS GPU performance is more important and there the single core SGX544MP1 simply sucks. But since the target audience of this device are rather clueless people that associate ‘octa-core CPU’ with performance (even if Allwinner’s crappy 3.4 kernel already shut 4 or more CPU cores down due to overheating) it will be most likely a success.
