Another Android Gaming Handheld Arrives - JXD S7300B - Looking Perfect For Retro Games On The Go

Another-Android-Gaming-Handheld-Arrives-JXD-S7300B-Looking-Perfect-For-Retro-Games-On-The-GoAlthough there is already a plethora of Android devices out there sporting d-pads and buttons, JXD seems to be keeping on top of their game by releasing new hardware to succeed their older models. The JXD S7300B is a 7" dual-core Android powered handheld, equipped with dual analog sticks and everything you need to play retro games on the go.

While these devices never come pre-loaded with the classics, it's surprisingly easy to get the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog, Super Mario World, Crash Bandicoot and more up and running on this new hardware. With a large selection of emulators available download from the Google Play store, we outlined plenty of these and where to get them in our Ultimate Guide To Retro Game Emulators on Android Mobile Phones. All you need now is ROMs of the original games.

From initial reactions and uploaded videos of the JXD S7300B in action, it very much suggests it's ready to offer you everything you'll ever need to compress an entire collection of games into one handheld - all at the price of $165.

JXD S7300B Features:

  • Dual Core 1.5Ghz CPU
  • Dual Joystick
  • Dual L,R shoulder buttons
  • Dual speakers
  • OTG extension
  • Root/Superuser Access
  • HDMI dual-screen display

Hopefully RetroCollect will have one of these handhelds soon. Expect videos of the device in action along with our thoughts on how well the JXD S7300B handles emulation of the older consoles shortly.

This looks like a decent device but I've still got a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth from previous JXD experiences.

hmmm.... I've had JXD devices before and while they felt solid, had competent enough controls and a decent screen, they were badly let down by exteremly poor battery life, dodgy emulation and really poor chinesey (tacky) looking front end menus/software which weren't too easy to navigate. English support (or any for that matter) was also terrible.

This may have changed since though - I purchased my last device about 2 years ago and I haven't picked it up again since.

The dual core should help with the dodgy emulation (unless it was a fault with the actual emulators themselves), but I hope that this one has better battery life than about half an hour to an hour of gameplay.

Looks a bit cumbersome to hold. Looking forward to hearing what the RC team thinks of it.
