First of all - I had a lot of handhelds in my 40 years of gaming experience. Exotic ones like the Atari Lynx, popular ones like Nintendo 3DS or PS Vita and last year I did get myself a Switch Lite. My GPD Win 3 is a total other caliber without wanting to make the others bad. But concerning quality of materials used and inside life of this little beast this is simply playing some leagues above. I did buy it in order to enjoy some games you just get for PC. And as I have simply no space for a PC and monitor - I already have the Playstation 4 and Xbox Series S connected to my TV - my decision was to get the GPD Win 3. And for me this one is the right choice. I love to feel the quality in my hands, I love the screen sliding up and using the keyboard and love to play atm American Truck Simulator. I think a lot more will follow but atm I'm totally fascinated with ATS. It looks amazing and compared with On the Road Next Generation Version on the Xbox Series S this one is also some leagues above. Fantastic Open world, super smooth gameplay and fantastic graphics despite playing not on the highest level. I could - but this shortens game time and the difference is not that big ..... so. Well think I gotta drive some miles again and wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :))
Brilliant little device, works really well and soundly built. Excellent service from DroiX, couldn’t have been more helpful.
As per the title, if you’re already looking at this device, you know what it can do.
The good news is, it plays games fantastically and I’m blown away that I can play games like Fallout 4 with mods at 60fps on a handheld device. This is the future and I be damned if it’s not good :)
I don't recommend you purchase the device expecting play the latest most demanding games without compromise but if like me you're happy a gen or so behind and looking to clear some titles from the backlog, you are going to be blown away !!
The controller inputs are solid. Really nice feel to the buttons, D-Pad and the sticks feel high quality (basically knocks spots off the likes of the Switch Joy-Cons and feel more akin to the Xbox / PS sticks).
Why the 4 stars, what do I dislike?
Ughhh the device can be a bit frustrating. The build quality is not great (I have wonky loose power button), the keyboard sometimes has a mind of its own but gets the job done and the most annoying thing of all is the fact that the controller if the device sleeps, doesn’t wake with it. This results in either having to constantly hibernate the device and or restart it each time you want to play.
Screen quality is good on the whole, very little light leak but just could be better.
The device / controller rumble is annoying and far from immersive as they claim. It's more like a mosquito than a rumble and I find it highly annoying so try to disable it in game wherever possible.
And that’s it.
The Pro’s far outweigh the cons for me personally but your mileage may vary. I am not disappointed with my purchase, I absolutely love the device with how niche, weird and powerful it is. As a general indication of what I can do / what I have been playing without issue:
Fallout 4, Skyrim (enhanced edition), Prey, Far Cry 5 and the more recently released Outer Worlds. All have worked great when you find their sweet spot and 60fps low to medium settings is not out of the question.
Emulation wise I have been playing Metroid Prime and F-Zero GX at X2 native resolution and they run full speed with no issues.
I genuinely believe that with some solid driver updates this device would be perfect but for now I have a few little irritations hence the 4 stars.
If like me handheld PC gaming has always been a dream, this is your jump off point. I have owned several niche devices in the past, this is the first that really does deliver and does what it says on the tin. Fallout 4 on the go at 60fps !!!!! I’m a happy man now go treat yourself.
GPD WIN 3 Handheld Gaming PC
Well I got my first WIN 3 in August, which had some Software Issues (didn't recognize the controller/mouse anymore). But due to the excellent service of the Droix team I got my replacement very quick. I love that device and although the price is high I think it is worth it.
