Hi, this is not a review at all, just very initial impressions of this device, specially comparing it with 5110B, which is the more similar device to this.FEELING:
As you can see in the picture, device is very similar to 5110B, but there are some differences. The first I noticed is that device is very light, 5110B is much heavier in weight.
The DPAD is not the same as 5110B. It's a 2-piece DPAD which reminds me to the first 5110.
Screen is a TFT panel 800x480, quite similar to the ones of g5a or 5110B. So, don't expect wonderful view angles.CONTROLS:
As I say, device use a 2-piece DPAD. The first thing I thought was that it would be difficult to handle. However, I inmediately played SF 3 and KOF games and I can make special moves without issues, so in this sense I have no complaints. A one piece DPAD would have been better though.
Analogs are different story. I have heard some people that have problems with left analog stuck. In my sample unit this does not happen, but analogs are not very good in any case. Are completely similar to the ones of 5110B, so not very precise. After using G5A, I find quite difficult to play with these analogs, to be honest.
Buttons feeling is ok except for L an R which a are bit hard, exactly like the ones of 5110B. SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE
Device comes with Android 4.4.2 (kitkat). Firmware has a very similar structure to a Legacy ROM so it's pretty stable.
It comes rooted and with some prebuilt emulators and apps that I suggest uninstalling and downloading them from google play store.
Device is a RK3188-T, so clocked at 1,4 ghz max. I will see If I am able to overclock it. In any case, performance is good, similar to devices like G5A. Screen rate is 60 hz and device has proper joystick driver, so no problem so far. Tincore keymapper works nice with the device too.
About battery time is hard to tell yet. It went from 100 to 80 in a hour running games, so I suppose it will be similar to G5a, about 4 hours or so max, but it's too soon to tell.
If someone wants me to test anything (except paid games from google play store xD), let me know and I'll try to find some time to run something.
