A really solid system with a learning curve. Not as simple to set up as the Anbernic retro devices. But once you set it up and learn how to use it, the Retroid Pocket 2 is a great retro device with a ton of uses.
Amazing device! Emulates some systems that my pi based arcade! Takes a little but of setting up but once its done you don't have to do it again. Amazing service from droiX too super fast shipping and cheapest I could find in the UK! Will definitely be coming back
If you want an inexpensive device to play the classic 16bit era stuff flawlessly, playable but glitchy N64/PS1 and choppy/sluggish DC/PSP with an option for HDMI out and WiFi for Retro Achievements then this is highly recommended. However it won't do this out of the box, you'll need to invest some serious time into setting things up and tinkering. DIG plus Retroarch works great for me. Now I'm past the tinkering stage and getting my portable Retro fix.
With the release of the Steam Deck everyone began talking about Emulation, I already have a Nintendo Switch however I really wanted to play some GBA games, this little device is a great add on to any EDC!
Loving this handheld, recommend if you want to play retro games, love the colour options too!
