Has the horrible input lag of previous Android devices been fixed in the newer generation models like these new GPD handhelds? I read something about "custom joystick drivers by tin core" which sounded promising.
I had a JXD S7300 last year. I also had a Sony Xperia Play and Samsung Galaxy S II. I messed around with emulators on all of those Android devices, and the input lag across every Android emulator I tried was atrocious. The controls just weren't responsive enough to play anything well except maybe RPGs.
Maybe I'm more sensitive to it than most, but generally when I pressed "jump" in Mario World there'd be a delay of a 1/4 of a second -- then Mario would jump. I'd run towards the edge of a platform and press "jump" when it felt right, then I'd fall right off the edge with the jump command not registering in time.
I'm a hardcore platform player, and play these games constantly on real hardware, and every Android emulator/device combo I've tried has been a disappointment in the control delay department. I'm hoping that's been fixed but wanted to get the feelings of the community before buying one.
