Latest in the lineup of retro gaming handhelds from ANBERNIC comes the RG351M, the successor to the ever-popular RG351P retro gaming handheld.
Featuring the Rockchip RK3326 clocked at a speedy 1.5GHz, as well as 1GB of DDR3L RAM, the RG351M is fully equipped to handle retro games from a variety of generations. Ranging from old arcade classics, all the way up to 5th generation consoles (PS1, N64, etc.), and 7th generation retro handheld (PSP, DS, etc.).
Sizing up at roughly 15.6×7.1×1.8cm yet weighing less than 300 grams, the Anbernic RG351M is a highly retro gaming console, and with a 480 x 320 IPS display, you’ll be able to enjoy high quality visuals in all your retro games, and with a respectable 3500mAh battery, you’ll be able to retro game for hours on end too.
Unlike its predecessor, the RG351M features a sleek aluminium metal shell, providing a sturdier, more premium feel during usage compared to its contemporaries.
The Anbernic RG351M features built-in Wi-Fi functionality too, enabling you to access a variety of features such as ad-hoc online multiplayer for retro games, curating box art for your library, and enhanced menu personalization.

From a hardware perspective, this is a premium product; everything feels as good as you’d hope. In my experience, everything up to PS1 and some N64 run and look really good. Just bear in mind that not everything you try does run smoothly or look that great.
Obviously, emulation is tricky with some emulators being better than others and some games are more demanding than others. Understand this and you won’t be disappointed.
One thing to be mindful of is the screen resolution. For the most part, the 480x320 screen is a good match for the 8/16-Bit era with the exception of any arcade games that utilise a vertical orientation; 320px isn’t enough to render a 1:1 pixel output so it looks a little squashed (although still perfectly playable).
One of the first things I’d recommend is installing the ‘elec351’ operating system for a much better user experience and user interface; it really removes all impressions of a bootleg system when compared to the out-of-the-box experience.
Final thoughts: I love it. It’s the perfect portable way of reminiscing your youth as well as exploring all those gems you missed first time around.
Works very well would reccomend
