How would you rate the screen?

Or look out for a cheap JXD7800B...great battery life and much more powerful.
Still, heat added for the price.

I bought this for friend in Tesco, but there is no uploaded games on this device. Is there any place where I can download some of the games?

I know nothing about these things, but is Play Store too obvious?
What am I missing here?

How do these work?

Is it a games machine and if so, where do you get the games from?

If not, what exactly is it's purpose?

Screens not bad I mean I use it for playing old school roms which don't need a hd screen but it's fairly good probably similar to iphone 3G screen, you can YouTube etc but screen is average/good

Google Play store, it will play Android games. It is an Android Tablet.

You can also download emulators for classic consoles and provided you own the original game play Super Mario World.

So you can download emulators?

Is this machine actually any better than just owning a decent tablet?

Screen res sharp?

Get a used Nexus 7 for around £65, root it and use a dualshock or other bluetooth controller for a far better experience and battery life.

Bought one of these for around £100 and sold it pretty quickly. Main grip was the screen quality, however for £40 I'm having this

So, spend more money on another device then add to that by spending money on another piece of equipment and you get a better experience?

Yup. If you want a bargain basement bit of kit then get the Archos.

Arent they both 7 inch? I realise my suggestion, as with the jxd, are more expensive but either of those two will give you 8+ hours use and a better gaming experience as well as being useful as tablets and readers etc.
you wanna play emulators on a fairly iffy screen for 2 hours before its flat then this is a great deal...havent said otherwise.

you can get emulators from the google play store. there is some good free/cheap ones on there, but the free ones aren't normally that great.

then search for ROMs on your pc, connect the device and put them in the app folder. unplug from ypur pc and boot the emulator.

Exactly spend more to get more...it's great! Or spend less and get this...I really don't want this as (apart from CoC or Boom Beach) I am not interested in andriod/ios gaming but this would be great if you were!?

Thought that was the latest. DX were clearing them out around £50 but sold out.
Can be had for around £80, less second hand.
There is a 2nd version of the Archos...probably why they are clearing out the 1st gen cheap.

I had the JXD S7300, as much as I loved it, it kept stalling and crashing on me

Tho I still went ahead and brought the JXD S7800 and I'm so glad I did The battery life is GREAT! I get at least 4 hours if I'm tethering WiFi from my phone to it and streaming movies with full brightness. It could easily last 8+ hours on airplane mode too with just playing games or watching movies etc.

I know this is nothing to do with this post but just thought I'd share it with you

oh and install an app from the play store called Happy Chick, it will give you everything you need for emulators & games on pretty much every classic console

Can anyone tell me aside from the usual md and snes emulators what run on this is there a mame emulator if so and it's any good I'm sold.

As nice as the JXD is, it's 3 times the price (new) and isn't a fair comparison. Even second hand they'd cost twice as much as this.

I got one of these from Tesco for £42 and really can't complain about it. It's fantastic for emulating old consoles and I've got thousands of retro games on mine.

There are two weak points: screen and battery.

The screen has a strange marbling effect when showing white. You can tell it's a cheap panel.

The battery doesn't last very long at all. I get about 2.5hrs gaming out of mine before it's flat.

Thanks everyone for your import ! Great deal but now I am actually looking into buying a JXD7800B !!!

Check this link out and what its able to do, I've just viewed all the videos within this link and I know what I want now

GAME is such a useless retailer; no mention of the product's model number, or device specs.
Someone got a link to one or the other?

Reading through this thread and seeing the amount of questions, one would assume that the website google.com doesn't exist.

I would say that hukd has a large gaming community so would it not be better to ask here so they can get answers from people who have experience with the topics been discussed? Google is ok but you can't always get what your looking for where as here people can just browse all the comments to learn the stuff on this device?

Still a cutting-edge tablet



I'm not saying this is a bad deal, but please be realistic. This is far from "cutting edge" 1.6ghz dual core A9, 1gb ram and a sub HD screen, sure that's more than what you would expect for £40 but it's hardly the best that money can buy.

Got one of these from Tesco a few months back. Great little device for emulation. The screen is average and the battery life isn't the best but it handles 99% of things I throw at it well. All games can be mapped using the built in button mapper. A great app for this is DosBox Turbo. With abit of tinkering you can get old dos based games running well. Well worth the money imo.
