Dingoo was Linux also, not Android. It was a little slow and shoddily made though. Android in maturing and I think Google has to address it's problems that app developers that write emulators complain about eventually. Till then you will have to go through the trouble of jail-breaking an iPhone or carry one of these devices around along with your smartphone to get good emulation.
I do like devices like this, it is always exciting when the devices is new. Problem is I have many devices now that can do what this one does. I'm waiting for a device that can emulate the Dreamcast/PS2/gamecube/xbox level of systems, everything before them is emulated pretty well but I'm guessing emulation machines wont get to that point for a few years yet.exodous
The Neo Geo X is an overpriced piece of junk that has been found to be running the old, crappy emulator from the Dingoo. The Zero plays Neo Geo games better than the damn Neo Geo X does!
"Problem is I have many devices now that can do what this one does"
Which devices (assuming you mean portable ones)? The Android ones tend to be poorly made with shitty battery life and sound lag, and the PSP/Dingoo are too slow. Personally I can't stand using touch screens for this kind of thing (so phones are out) but if you don't mind that (or don't mind carrying around a bluetooth controller) I guess there's always that option.Jerram Fahey
The portable that I use the most next to my phone is my Pandora. I was a day one orderie and ever since I got it I loved it. I can play pretty much everything below the Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/xbox level on it so I don't really need anything else. Besides, my Pandora was made in the US, now they're made in Germany(and have a 1GHz chip in them now). I can OC my current Pandora to around 900MHz so I'm just saying until a handheld comes out that can play at the Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/xbox level I'm not upgrading.
If I didn't have a Pandora I would buy one of these. Price wise this is a steal compared to the Pandora, but I own a Pandora so, like I said, until I can play some PS2 games I'm not buying a new device for emulation. If some good GCW Zero exclusives come out I might buy one though. . .exodous
There only one about the device that i dont like is the Menu ... It is kinda ugly and doesnt fit with that lovable design ... And i think they should add a touchscreenGjnKai
