Looks and feels great, delivered fast and well packaged, however at this point I've only quickly checked it over and sent it to Santa 🎅
Purchased the RP3+ to play mainly PSP, PS1, Dreamcast and N64 games. I own several handheld devices which all have their own strengths and weaknesses and the RP3+ is no different. Like everyone says, it needs some setup but if you have experience with android apps and adding your own ROMs this shouldn't be a problem for you (YouTube is your go-to for help here). I personally installed all the emulators I required from the Google Play Store and I have my ROMs on a 256Gb SD card. Settings for each emulator can also be found on YouTube if required. ALL the systems I listed above play VERY well indeed and I'm very happy with the performance offered by the RP3+ and it obviously plays all the less demanding systems easily. Retroarch needs a little more knowledge to get things up and running should you want to use it but the end result is worth the time and effort. The device itself looks really nice and is comfy enough (possibly better with a grip....Google them). The screen looks gorgeous and battery life is good. Without a doubt the RP3+ is going to be one of favourite handhelds for retro gaming. Highly recommended if your happy adding your own emulators and ROMs. 👍
Handles most games I've tried excelently, playing PSX at 3x looks and feels great!
The controls feel amazing, and the D-pad is one of my favorite of all controllers.
Very happy with my RP3+! :)

The handheld is one of the best for this price range for a reason. Looks great, works great, great price and is a life saver for long trips. New update as well making stronger stuff like Gamecube emulators run even better. Love it!
