Finally, I have the Retro Game 300 in my hands. Its certainly impressive. But is it everything we want in a handheld console? Or is there still improvements to be made?

The PocketGo has new cfw 1.31 which fixes a majority of screen tearing issues. You should give it a shot!

Nice video! Turn down the gain on the mic a bit if possible. It’s distorted a bit from clipping.

Thanks for the reviews man, I am between this and the GPI case (I will be playing mostly GBA games). Which do you recommend over the other?

Just got one of these.. Volume issue is solvable as there is a software setting. I set my volume to 7 - it was set on 90. It's still sensitive but nowhere near as bad. I'd like to know how to switch the screen orientation in FBA320 tho, for the vertical shooters.

All these retro handhelds are garbage..Not only are the screens too small, and the built in games in them suck big time, but they are also full of glitches, not to mention that they eat away at the batteries faster than you can count to three, especially if you play with the volume turned on..Save your time and money, don't buy this garbage

Who don't they make dreamcast and Xbox games hand-helds? I'm sick of all these 16 bit crap hand helds every year. We've played these games over and over again its about time we have dreamcast ps2 and Xbox games on an hand held console.

@Ray890 Wow the bastards, thats the reason i bought this too but the transparent version
Ray890 Vor 3 Monate
Nope, marketing nonsense. it's 320x240 just like all the other devices. This was one of the reasons I bought this one specifically and I learned the hard way, plus someone on Discord directly confirmed it to me

It's worth rooting the SD Card and adding Retro FW firmware. There's also a V3 model out now with an IPS screen, which I've ordered as the screen was the only let down on an otherwise brilliant little handheld.

I think the IPS screen option might fix the screen complaints that have been about... perhaps you have the TFT model.

Well I wasn't impressed with my rg300, the screen the buttons look and feel great, but the performance was awful, gba SNES were a pipe dream on my one, the Bittboy has a nastier look and feel compared to the rg300, but an arm CPU it's far more capable, even with only one core, lots of support, I have been pleasantly surprised with my Bittboy, it has pretty good battery life, it charges quick and has decent unofficial support, I have a GPI case which is amazing, fantastic look and feel, good SNES emulation, but it's not as slick and portable, I had a gap in shifts at work, the Bittboy slid so nicely in my pocket, it was there to keep me entertained for over an hour, I was stoked with the little thing and would recommend one to anyone who is little tech savvy, who enjoys retro games.

Shoulder buttons are easily the highlight of this for me, prefer the landscape looking knock offs!

Does it run Super Mario RPG and Star Fox properly? Those two are always problematic on really low end devices. You are right about the colors looking a bit dark and desaturated. On the other hand, on the LDK they look too bright and still desaturated (but that might be the screen brightness), so neither is getting it right. That's not a big deal though, it's not enough to detract from the experience, but I think I would prefer how it looks on the RG-300.

I think $50 for a tinker friendly handheld console is pretty much an all around better value than some of these startup consoles that you only really care about two years in after they gain traction with average to terrible supply availability.

Go to settings and reduce the loudness of the speaker to about 20. That should do the trick.

I don't know if it's just an artifact of your recording, and I don't own either handheld, but from your side by side comparison, I honestly prefer the Retro Game 300's colours. Sure, they are darker, but the saturation seems much nicer. The LDK's screen seems like it would produce very poor blacks, like the backlighting is way too high, and the contrast is low. Everything looks slightly desaturated. I bet a better comparison would be seeing how Super Metroid looks on each screen.

"..more sensitive than my stepmother" haha! Well said. You should do a video ranking these handheld emulators. Curious how you stack these up against each other. Thanks!

@Non Player Character Number6 I did not find it that dull, particularly considering it was filmed in a brightly-lit studio.

Either my headphones are going, or your audio is clipping. Love the video as always, though! (just lower your input gain and put a limiter in your NLE master bus).

AV OUT function Elliot??? Some RG300"s say they support it, some don't. The one I've ordered doesn't so I'm confused by that. Did yours come with the emulators and roms ?? I will have no idea how to install emulators on this if mine doesn't
Seacliff Vor 4 Monate
For anyone who has this, does this have a Wonderswan emulator, and if so how is it? I heard the LDK's and Pocket Go's Wonderswan emulator was pretty 'meh'. Wanted to know if it improved here.
Looks wonderful! seriously thinking of getting one!
