Awesome little device

So pleased with my RP2S - such a great device for retro gaming, even plays (some) Gamecube games - currently bringing back memories with Zelda Windwaker. Highly recommended and my only niggle is the screen size - shame that there isn’t a 4” version

Thank you for your positive review of the Retroid Pocket 2S. We are glad to hear that you are enjoying the device and reliving some great gaming memories. We will definitely take note of your suggestion for a 4' version. Happy gaming!

Excellent little thing!

Very nicely made piece of kit. Joysticks feel of very good quality, though you probably need the upcoming grip attachment for extended use of the analogue sticks. The screen is very colourful, bright and sharp looking. Performance is excellent, Dreamcast runs pretty flawlessly and some PS2 and Gamecube. All lower end systems are fine. There are no games installed as standard, but I have other emulation setups with plenty of roms, so no problems there. Best thing to do is install retroarch and a few stand-alone emulators, get them all working smoothly and then install a frontend of your choice. All in all an excellent device. One more thing, the touch screen works beautifully as well, only occasionally missing my input due to dry old hands.

A great portable retro console with plenty of power

I bought this console as my first retro console and I'm playing with it every day (mostly GBA titles). I tried some PS, N64 and PSP titles but feel that the screen is too small for these games so if I could go back in time I'd probably buy something with more screen estate (Retroid Pocket 3+ or 4pro).
