JXD's Upcoming S7800B Android Gaming Handheld Packs An Emulation Punch

JXD-7800B-Emulation-Ready-Android-ConsoleEarlier this year we were lucky enough to get our hands on one of JXD's earlier product releases, the S7300B. This Android based tablet offering video game controls provided a stunning platform for emulation fans, however, it's about to be bettered. The JXD S7800B is just around the corner and its advancements in power are set to blow the emulation scene wide open.

This revised model not only sports all new processors, enhanced displays and updated sotfware, but also comes with the added advantage of how far emulation has come on the Android platform as of recent. Since our last dabble with JXD's hardware, the Android operating system is now capable of emulating even more systems than ever before (including some rather recent ones, albeit questionable legal territory) along with the added bonus of countless updates to existing software.

Stock of the JXD S7800B has finally arrived at Willgoo and several other online retailers, however, units are yet to be dispatched due to testing requirements. Nevertheless, a handful of videos have surfaced online showcasing how powerful this system really is. Not only can you expect more fluid PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 emulation, but also several newer systems and all the old favourites behaving as expected too.

Got mine via eBay, arrived today... Pretty sweet device... didnt know it had so much stuff "on it", ie you can download all the PSP stuff directly, little unsure about doing that to be honest... but when I dont fancy sitting in front of the SNES or Megadrive, well this will do just perfect... feels nice in the hand, nice large screen, and unlike the Archos (that I had and gave away) it feels like it will last for more than 2 weeks (thats how long my Archos lasted till the screen got phantom presses)...

Happy with this...

Would you comment on the SNES emulation? Mario World looked a little slow and laggy in the video.

Hey man

how does the D-pad and the other Keys/controls compare to the PS Dualshock in terms of precision and solidity? Do they feel like they're solid enough to last years? Generally speaking, does this console have a typical "Chinese" feel to it? I'm asking this since I recently went through a horrible experience with a similar device (IBEN L1) and don't want to repeat the mistake again. Thanks in advance for any input.

SNES emu seems pretty perfect, I played Super Mario World for a while, I noticed no slow down or any other issues, looks great on the screen, I have not spent much time on it though, so far though excellent... Didnt even know about PSP emulator, that works pretty well, little frame skip but impressive stuff...

I had a Achos Gamepad before, and it felt poor quality, and after a few weeks I got phantom presses that made most games unplayable... They sent me another brand new one, but that was me kinda done, the battery only last about 1 hour also... So sold the new on to a friend cheap (loosing a lot of money)....

This one feels nice, it looks nice too, much better quality, sure it dont feel like a Vita in solid sense, but the dpad is nice, the buttons are nice and all in right place, sure feels nice in the hand, and yes, pretty solid, analogue feel nice, not to soft so have a nice resistance...

I have also had a Dingoo and Caanoo, so have a few of these, this is much nicer, only issue so far is the "game software" that allows you to download roms etc, its just slow, but I guess thats a bandwidth/latency thing... I have all my own emulators anyway, so doesn't bother me much...

Thanks a lot man, much appreciated. Just one more thing, how does the JXD 7800 work as a regular tablet? Is the wi-fi connection stable enough when being far from the router?

I have had no issues with wi-fi, so assume that to be ok, its a Android tablet to feels like a Android tablet when you need it to... Nice though having the controls attached, and the little "assign the buttons" app is near, and saves for each individual app, so once you save your SNES controls they stay...

You have access to the Google play store etc, so you can use it as a normal tablet... nice screen to
