Really enjoy this device, far more sturdy than my RG35XX. Stock firmware is good, having options of others to add ma hones is great. Form factor is really comfortable and small enough to take anywhere. Got case at same time, perfect fit for it.
This might not be the best chipset out there, but this is exactly the console I have been waiting for - a SNES controller with a screen in the middle and analogue sticks! Plays everything I would hope for, feels amazing, looks perfect.
Great console great design!
Great controls, beautiful screen, very compact, amazing battery life, very easy to use Linux stock-firmware and generally speaking, you could use this straight from the box, within seconds.
But I'd recommend you at least replace the supplied memory cards, with better quality branded ones.
And if you have the time, I would also recommend installing JELOS to replace the stock Linux firmware, and also update the Android to the Anbernic released version (although I never use the Android myself).
I have encountered one small issue though.
The Linux boot up, whether the stock firmware or JELOS do not boot up each time you turn it on. Sometimes it takes a "reset" to make it work. Not the worst issue ever, but a small bit frustrating. Unsure if hardware issue or firmware.
Very solid device. You'll want to use your own SD card with a new OS but it's easy.
