Can't speak for anyone else but when I say it's to high, I don't mean it's to high for the spec.. I mean it's to high for a JXD product.
They have a track record of lousy firmwares and spotty QC.
I can't speak for the rest of the world but Im in the US and sending back a bad unit is kinda expensive.
It's not that the Chinese can't make a decent product, it's that they often dont' try.
I mean foxconn makes Iphones for Apple, but then again they're not trying to cut corners at every turn.
Also there is the consideration as to what it actually gets you? surely you could play more demanding android games, as the 78's mali is long in the tooth.
but these handhelds bread and butter is emulation.. and what will it get you for that price tag?
smoother psp emulation.. ok that's nice.. what else? probably not gonna run Saturn, and what else is there?
Dreamcast I guess but the last time I tried that it ran remarkably well (maybe not 100% on every game, but pretty well)
Is there a android gamecube or ps2 emulator? and if so would this new unit beable to run it well enough to play? Dunno about the first part of that question but the 2nd part I doubt.
If JXD more US sellers, or just better QC I'd be more likely to consider a 250-300 dollar unit.. although that's kinda pushing what I'd pay for a tablet/handheld in the first place regardless.
I mean 1 drop and it's potentially toast. lot of money to be carrying around in a fragile electronic device.
Same philosophy on phones, about 100 bucks is my limit, dont care who's names on it..
Although I will say the samsung's are built pretty damn good, I recently found a S3 in the middle of the road that obviously had been ran over at least once, screen was smashed but it was still alive, kept getting calls and text messages I couldn't answer.
Uh anyway All that having been said I still prefer the design of the 78, this s192 looks like it would be better for just gaming, kinda like a shield, but I like the 78 because it also works pretty well as a tablet which is good when you're traveling.
