Exceptional value for the price. Controls are responsive and the stock OS runs anything through PS1 flawlessly. Many PS2 games work well, but some experience lag. Overall, for a sub $200 device no one can complain. The aluminum body is great, and stock android OS works like any other.
I've been using my RG405M for a few weeks now and it's a lovely device. What I like most about it is the size combined with the 4" 4:3 screen. Anbernic has multiple other devices with a similar form factor but only a 3.5". That extra half-inch really makes all the difference in this being a still pocketable device while retaining a large screen.
The only thing that I would have prefer is having the dpad over the analog stick, as I'd say that a good 80% of my time is spent playing games that were designed for dpads instead of analog sticks. Having the dpad above the analog would give your hands a more natural position for that primary gaming experience. It's not bad, just what I would have preferred.
Overall, it's a well-built, premium feeling handheld that I hope Anbernic continues to iterate on. This is a fantastic form factor that should continue to be part of their portfolio.
Build quality, awesome, feels like an awesome premium console. Battery last forever, rarely shut it of. I been messing with some ps one games and have some small glitch issues, but nothing I can't deal with. I might have to mess with some emulator issues. Other than that one of my best investments I have gotten in a while. Great quality, great game play amd exactly what I was looking for. Over a month in still loving it but have yet to check to many other games. Although missing some of my faves, I have learn that I can add roms which I haven't yet but will try later. Really wished it had ff7 but beggars can't be choosers. Will not disappoint
Pros: incredible storage of games comes with only a few button presses, but my friend who set it up for me had to rebind or reroute the home key to have the nice game selection panels open for easy browsing.
It seems like the model he bought, the portrait style persay (if this is landscape),, has a button my doesn't have, so I would consider that if I were making this choice again.
But it's not a big deal to me, other than I can't figure out how to get back to the android home screen. Without rebinding again.
Lots of old school games and a great selection of old systems!
