If you're looking to buy, I'd suggest going for GPD Win not this one. This is an android base device so you're pretty much limited to android games and emulation but the GPD Win runs windows 10 and gives you more freedom. Here's a hint

but that's nearly 300% (about £300)
Most ppl have phones more epowrfuk than this so you can just get a pad to clip your phone to.. So cold..

I understand but if you go for this you've simply wasted your money. Better getting nothing or an android phone instead. It's like a half complete piece of kit tbh. It's good in terms of quality but with limited capabilities. With windows 10 version you technically can play your steam and Xbox one games and it can act as a portable PC for you too.

I'm just waiting for the Rainway App to make its way to the switch. And by waiting I mean hoping and praying!

Well if Nintendo agrees that'd be a revolution in cross platforming but what are the chances?
This is really good value for money. Battery life is amazing on this thing.

I had one of these and upgraded to the win. This machine is still worth getting, it will emulate everything well up until the psone era.
Great little machine for emulation, I love having all my 16 bit faves in one place and not having to faff about with a separate pad.
I've been looking at these from UK suppliers for around £180, is there not VAT, import duty and fee's to add to the Gearbest price?

I've double checked and there is 20% VAT (plus admin costs) that is payable once it enters the UK. Whether you get away with not paying is purely luck, if Gearbest mark it as a 'gift' then you'll only pay if they spot check it, if they don't mark it as a gift then you will pay (dependant on what value Gearbest put on the invoice)

I've never had to pay anything like that on stuff I've ordered abroad. I just won't pay it if that's the case.

You must have been lucky then, some people will have to pay for when they do spot check's. I'm not sure refusing the pay if caught would be a good idea though as you've paid for the item so it belongs to you and as it was bought from China I don't think you'll be covered under the Consumer Contract Regulations and allowed to sent it back.

​Huh! Do you understand percentages??
from my experience if you select the free/cheaper postage option you are less likely to pay the import tax. When I have chosen the fast option (eg DHL) then I have had to pay the fees.

These devices are great, I have a much older JXD model, and this looks even better.

Sorry but cold.

The Linx vision is cheaper than this if you shop around.

You could buy a low cost android tablet / windows tablet + controller without the risk of import duty and better tech support / communities if you need help
I have one and they are great. Forget the negative comments and if you love emulation then get one. Fantastic screen, inbuilt controller, great battery life and great specs for emulation. Flash with the legacy rom to get rid of the crappy stock rom and emulators and then download the good emulators from play store and your good to go.
Any codes?

You can get retroarch for android, so this device is fine.
it's really ugly though sadly - that big square of wasted space in particular. Not sure the DSXL was the correct choice of inspiration for the design

!00% is £111.38, 300% is £334.14
thanks for the likes
sorry for causing debate about the % (2xx%)
Expired now as back up to £124, add the VAT payable and it's not much cheaper than buying from Amazon with next day delivery with a U.K. guarantee.
