    Is the 720p screen a downside?

    • +5 votes

      There's a 720p screen on the Nintendo Switch which is 6.0". Definitely not a downside. Higher resolution also means much weaker battery life.

        Nice. Might get one but depends what sort of games. I've got an severely unused Vita somewhere.
        What sort of RPGs can I play on this?

    •  

      not with that size screen. it's only 5 inch, also it probably couldn't do higher resolution the fps will take a hit

      Since this is mainly for emulators it's pretty perfect.

      No. It will be faster to play in lower res. The CPU is not exactly the strongest in this. Kinda wish they put in a flagship SD835 in there instead. That will run Dolphin Emu (Wii/GC) and PPSSPP at full speed.

    Is this a real GPD or a knock off? Plus GPD 2 is out.

    • +6 votes

      It's a real GPD XD Plus. This is the android variant. GPD 2 is windows, is not out yet and costs $650USD.

      GPD is the company that makes a number of different handheld devices. You are referring to the GPDWin which is Windows based gaming and the GPDWin 2 is out to beta testers. They make the XD (this, Android based) and the GPD Pocket (smallest true Windows 10 notebook available on the market).

    What's Android like on these? Weirdly customised, crapware loaded bug heap or is it mostly stock?

    The MediaTek SoC is a bit of a bummer, makes porting much harder.

  •  

    These look great, I wish I could justify buying one. Anyway thanks for the deal OP.

  •  

    Awesome find!

    I just cancelled my preorder with them and reorder again

    "64bit N64 and SONY PS games"
    REALLY???

    • +1 vote

      Yes? I don't see the issue. It can emulate 64bit N64 games and also Sony PS1 Games.

      •  

        Wow so just download all the rooms put in sd card and it will read them all? I used to emulate on pc long time ago but always need to find good emulators some work some not and play around with settings button etc so is this really user friendly and powerful?

        • +1 vote

          Yep stick them on and they'll work. You'll still need to map the buttons for most games.

        •  

          I assume you havent touch android based retro emulation? It is much more convinient now than the windows based one. Hell even Hyperspin (that crazy complex front end) have an Android version and so does retroarch (multicore emulator) which pairs well with hyperspin.

    "Closest price I could find was $209 on Gearbest, so this is a big discount. Ships after the 25th. Faster shipping was only an extra 90c for me (Australia Air expedited)"

    Um, that doesn't add up.

    • +1 vote

      How so? It might not be worded elegantly but what OP is trying to say is this:

      The next cheapest one he can find is from Gearbest for USD$ 209
      FastTech selling it for almost USD$30 cheaper
      Ships after 25th of february when it launches (still preorder world wide)
      Shipping is free if you are willing to add 5 more weeks to your 25th of feb launch date but you can add 90 cents usd to expedite the shipping (will still arrive after 25th of feb but instead of 5 weeks after it might be only 2 weeks after).

      Now i have never heard of fastech before but the website I usually go to (obscure handheld) seems to vouch for them so there’s that

        Now i have never heard of fastech

        The people who started Dealextreme sold up in 2012 and started up Fasttech. They're a reliable crowd.

    Is there any difference between the EU and US version beside the power plug?
