Hi! I just received my powkiddy q80 (pocketgo2 perfect clone) . it works perfect with rogue firmware 1.04. no stuck buttons. dpad works very good, not perfect, good feeling. buttons feeling good, but not as good as rg350 buttons, but really good enough.
rg350 dpad is a little better, still not perfect too. street fighter alpha2 moves are difficult to do with each console, but moves works more often with rg350 than powkiddy q80 (pocketgo 2 clone). with powkiddy , left side, hadouken with ken are very hard to do, right side hadouken works perfect. Rg350, both sides the same, hadoken a little hard to do each time, but possible to get them work everytime with some practice, powkiddy left side hadouken cant work each time with practice for me. In Pac-Man , control not work perfect with both console, not always register the good direction everytime, both console has this problem, but it happen more often with powkiddy. So Pacman is more playable with rg350, but not perfect. In platform games like Mario and Sonic games, both console dpad works near perfect, no stress here, im happy. powkiddy a little more bright but worst colors accuracy, Blue is not enough saturate, but most others colors seems have very good saturation and black are better. powkiddy has slightly more motion blur than rg350. in general i think i prefer rg350, for dpad and color accuracy and better overall saturation, even if a little less bright than powkiddy, and in general i prefer brighter screen, but colors of the rg350 are really better than powkiddy, they are more accurate, WHITE is WHITE, and blue is more saturate, colors of powkiddy look less accurate, blue is a little washed out, but others colors are very saturate, its still a brighter lcd screen, but the WHITE has a Big yellow tint, that i dont like much. rg350 is more like Cold colors and powkiddy is warm colors with too much yellow tint to my taste, specially with white that is looking yellow. the rg350 lower dpad position dont bother me much. but i prefer powkiddy dpad upper position. But to be honest they cant be compare to my ps vita oled with enso henkaku 3.60 that works at 500mhz. My ps vita has everything better and screen too. But i want something to be more pocket for some situation. The rg350 or powkiddy do the job well. and both works great with retroarch too.
im satisfied with the powkiddy q80 build quality and dpad and buttons. this revision seems better than first pocketgo 2 version. i dont saw any problem i read from pocketgo 2, the problems have been corrected. The volume problem seems not happen with the original powkiddy firmware. Now with rogue 1.04 , volume at minimum is still a little high, but nothing like i imagined from people that complaint, maybe this problem had been corrected too. at minimum volume i find it still a little bit too low even in bed in evening
The Rg350 and Powkiddy Q80 are both much better than my gcw-zero. ( i hate my gcw-zero dpad so much, its really bad and much worst than these two consoles lol!) They are both better than my gp2x, gp32, caanoo, wiz, rs97, dingoo a320.. , i had a lot of console. Finally we have better retro handheld than some years ago. But i still prefer a little more the rg350 over the powkiddy q80. ( i have a gpd xd plus and gpdwin, but to me they are not direct competitor, the form factor of gpdxd and gpdwin is too much bigger) ( i think my favorite N1 number 1, retro handheld is still my ps vita oled with enso henkaku and number 2 is my gpdwin1, but this thing is really big and weight a lot and the dpad is very bad like gcw-zero.. , in general i prefer to put a handheld like rg350 in my bag
or at worst my ps vita.
hope this topic help some people !
(you can buy powkiddy q80 on aliexpress, i paid 74$ Canadian money) ( i bought my rg350 from geekbuying, but you can find it everywhere)
