Compact, powerful and convenient!

I haven't been using this device for very long but I've put a lot of time into it since I got it.
I've tried a variety of games and emulators; Saturn works great, I've managed to get some of my favourite PS2 and Gamecube games running, as well as various android games; roblox because it's easy to test, king of fighters 2012, morrowind (tes3mp and OMW) as well as Mdickie's Wrestling Empire.

All of these games run great, and I am thoroughly impressed with performance.
The battery life is equally impressive, easily lasting more hours of gameplay than I can realistically fit into a single day.

So far, I haven't seen anything to suggest the hinge crack problem and I hope I never have that problem.
The device is relatively comfortable but I find it a little bit hard to hold the console the way I would hold a controller, due to there being nowhere to rest my index fingers. (the entire back of the console is occupied by the triggers and bumpers)

Even the audio quality is outstanding - miles ahead of the likes of Anbernic's devices. When you hold the device right, the speakers are loud and full. The headphone jack is clean and I hear no distortion or noise even with my most sensitive of earbuds.

Last thing I'll mention is the controls. I love these slide sticks, they feel great - much better than small "proper" sticks like on the switch or the vita.
The face buttons feel nice and responsive, with a clear actuation point.
The only thing I'd have liked to see improved upon is the d-pad, it's the typical nintendo style d-pad which is my least favourite for any type of game. Nearly impossible to play fighting games with this d-pad, sadly.

All in all, I am more than pleased with my purchase - DroiX's service was excellent, the packaging was good and of course, the device itself I absolutely adore. I can't recommend it enough for anyone who's looking for a device with a more convenient form factor.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Retroid Pocket Flip. We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying the device and have had a positive experience with it so far.

We are also happy to hear that you have not experienced the hinge crack problem and we hope it stays that way. Our team works hard to ensure the quality and durability of our products.

Thank you for your kind words about our customer service and packaging. We strive to provide a positive experience for all of our customers.

Once again, we appreciate your support and we hope you continue to enjoy the Retroid Pocket Flip.

Brilliant

I originally bought this to replace my Anbernic RG280V with something more powerful, has android and is just as portable. It does this and more - the support for Wii games was a pleasant surprise with the majority of the games working well. The more demanding games I don't mind missing at all (theres too much that works well already!).

There are some niggles that I think YouTube videos and written reviews have mentioned that I've not really noticed :-
- The hinge may be loose or even break in the wrong hands but honestly its been locked in position quite well when I've been using it.
- The L1 and R1 buttons seem quite narrow when the screen is fully open but I have slim fingers.
- The buttons seem hard to push down fully but I just push harder, they also seem to been loosening a bit.
- Yes its fiddly to setup but there are guides to walk you through the better emulators and launchers available.

There are some features that I wasn't expecting as well :-
- Gamepad support is great with Retroids version of Android and the physical buttons will more than likely be supported. If they aren't theres Retroids utility software which is likely to solve things (I haven't needed to use it yet!).
- The extra meta buttons are a great idea and come in handy when mapping the controls. Some software like Dolphin even automaps these keys to sensible choices!
- The addition of a basic FM radio and music app is a great idea when I'm not gaming as I can now use this with headphones as a second device whilst travelling, walking, etc.
- Its quite thick but otherwise small compared to the likes of a Switch or a Switch Lite (probably a Pocket 3, 3+, 4 or 4 Pro) and easily fits in a pocket and because its a clamshell it doesn't need a case, which makes it even smaller.

All in all its a brilliant handheld I'll be playing on for a long while. I just hope that Retroid make a Flip 2 as there are one or two games that work well on the Pocket 4 and Pocket 4 Pro that are missing on this one.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review for the Retroid Pocket Flip. We're thrilled to hear that it has exceeded your expectations and that you're enjoying its features, including the support for Wii games and its compact size. We appreciate your feedback about the hinge and buttons, and we will definitely take it into consideration. Thank you for choosing the DroiX, and happy gaming!

Looks great but a bit tricky to set up

The Pocket Flip looks a great piece of kit but is a bit tricky to set up (for a relative novice like me at least). That said, I bought it as a bit of a winter nights project so I’ll look forward to learning how to get the most out of it! These are very much my first impressions!

Retroid pocket Flip

The device is what I was looking for, A clamshell MAME and PSP device.
It Runs 95% of PSP games full speed, lots can run with upscaling.
Killzone Liberation is a struggle but on the whole it's good device and it's a Clamshell Retro handheld!!
