What’s the difference between this an a normal raspberry pi3 .?
Some of the software options look quite old so I suspect that there isn't much in the way of community support for this. Although it can apparently run Raspbian (2015 image).

Yeah agree
But if someone knows what they are doing it might be comparable to the raspberry pi 3 for some projects
I am only going to use it for one specific function which I know it will work for i.e Home Assistant

Support isn't much there unless you want to go around and compile your own kernels etc, in which case it's a sweet board.

But for the more happy go lucky tinkerers .. raspberry pi is better.
One thing that is possibly better than the Pi3 is the SATA support, also 1Gb network port.

There are a few good Android builds for these, so slightly more user friendly than some of the Linux based ones.

It does but costs 4 times as much
I'm a DIY enthusiastic, and I've used both Raspberry Pis and Orange Pi. In short, stay away from Orange Pi. Its specs look amazing for the price, but performance and stability will drive you mad.
I run Armbian on an orange pi PC (Not plus), there's an image for the + model you can download here.
It runs really stable, I'm currently using it as a node in a k8 cluster with raspberry pi's.

Same here, no problems with mine. I was using it as a PBX until recently, which it may end up being once again. I run armbian on all of my boards, and raspberrypi-ua-netinst on my Raspberry Pis.

Stability issues are usually down to crappy power supplies/sd cards/cables.
Mine arrived DOA
Price gone up to $44 / £31 now ?
Well I'll be if anyone has the same issue where the board is seemingly dead the thing can take a osp charge cable mine now works so the mini USB must be at fault I can live with that.

I think these can only be powered via the barrel connector not usb
That would explain it then and I meant psp in my previous post.

If you run android on it you can power it by mini usb, for linux you need to use the barrel connector.
Isn't the android build on these chinese?
