Retro mini RS-90 gba micro handheld
« on: November 19, 2017, 01:37:02 pm »
Indstr mentioned this handheld in a previous topic: The retro mini https://www.amazon.com/Handheld-Console-Retro-Bran-new-Classical-Children/dp/B0777J6KVV/ref=sr_1_165?ie=UTF8&qid=1510859830&sr=8-165&keywords=handheld+game+tf+card .
After some searching I found out that the same handheld is also being sold on aliexpress under the name Revo mini : https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/REVO-MINI-Handheld-Game-Console-2-0-Video-Game-MP3-MP4-Speler-met-Backlit-40-Ingebouwde/32842291381.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.e23i5g .
The photo's match the prototype renders on gbatemp: https://gbatemp.net/threads/theres-a-new-handheld-coming-the-revo-k101-mini.427939/ .
I'm not sure if I should order one through Aliexpress. The amazon reviews are all made by people who just recently opened an account. Thoughts?
EDIT: Actually it's not made by the Revo k101 people.

It's not hardware emulation but software. Still might get one next month, because of the nintendo style dpad  8)

Does that mean that it has the same processor? then it can be hacked  :)

The look of this is really nice. Love to hear some performance impressions if anyone gets one.

Shoulder buttons are on the back, where the cartridge slot would have been.

So this uses an Ingenic jz4725B. Is that an okay processor for gba and gameboy?

Can the gameboy color emulator run in full screen or with less of a border?

Thanks!
Do gameboy advance games run well? Are there any framerate/speed problems?

I would seriously love to see a full review of this thing.  Does anyone know of one?  It's hard to Google for with so many differently named companies selling it.  Price is all over the place too, seems $50 is the low end on aliexp, with it topping out at $80-90 BIN noe eBay.

It's sped up so not really useful. In the comments uploader mentions that FC, SFC, gba and megadrive work.

Hi all,

Have read through your posts and make a general video to show the Retromini operating. The video is raw in the sense that no cutting or speeding up has happened during the loading or game play in order to provide a genuine feel of the console. Excuse our in-game fails :P.

Without any patching it can read GBA, NES (SFC) and SNES (SFC). For GB and GBC it needs to be patched to GBA format and not all games will run perfectly. In order to run ROMS you must use a Micro SD card.

If you do not buy it from our website we cannot guarantee the functionality will be the same. Without bias it is a pretty cool system, in general I personally prefer a larger screen though (it is just 2").

Feel free to ask any questions.
