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 handheld consoles (PSP, DS, etc.).
Sizing up at roughly 15.6×7.1×1.8cm yet weighing less than 300 grams, the RG351M is a highly portable 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 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.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
After a bit of research this one came highly recommended, and I'm very happy with it.
The device is solid, with a very high production quality. Buttons have a nice solid feeling to them, the d-pad is nice and responsive. The switch style analogue controls are fine, however I rarely use them I'd say they might get uncomfortable with long use due to their slightly lower position.
The device ships with a generic micro SD, would recommend backing it up at the very least/maybe replacing with a better quality card.
The default software is OK, some games are the wrong region/language pack however.
Great piece of hardware, recommended!
Build quality is outstanding, Feels very premium. Display could have been higher resolution and makes some systems look strange due to the pixel count and strange 3:2 aspect ratio but you can change aspect ratio for each system on RetroArch and use various filters which makes things look amazing. Does require a bit of tinkering though, games don’t look great out of the box other than GBA, Lynx and WonderSwan which are pixel perfect. I also advise installing ArkOS as the installed operating system isn’t as good.
Specs say 256Gb SD card is max but I am using a 512Gb with no problem at all. This handheld runs any system without issue predating the PS1. N64 games do run but suffer slowdown and audio crackling. Dreamcast works but same applies.
Overall this is one of the best consoles I’ve ever owned and it feels great to be able to play thousands of games on one system. As an owner of the older RG350 this is a big upgrade.
Can’t recommend it enough.
I must say the build quality of the RG351M is fantastic, solidly built and the buttons feel great. Unfortunately as I have big hands, it’s a little difficult to comfortably play and this is where Droix have been amazing. I emailed their customer support and they recommend the RG351V, after checking a few videos online, decided on replacing the 351M with the RG351V and now the return is being processed and I’m eagerly awaiting the V (in gameboy grey) with a partial refund. I can’t fault the RG351M but if you have larger hands, it may be best to check the V first and I also can’t fault Droix for their after sales support and will be definitely using this company in the future.
A great device which comes with a brilliant selection of retro games. I have to check ,cross check and explore to what the rg351m can do with YouTube as well the internet. Still in the researching stage but very impressed so far thanks😉
Great quality product from Anbernic, the M version feels awesome in the hands, however the P would have also been just as good if your budget didn't stretch as far.
Droix customer support were also quick and easy when I had some questions.
