I quite like the kooky design, with the vertically aligned buttons on the right hand side it looks like a digital photo frame you can take down from the shelf and play games on.

Plastic looks cheap as hell and I'll bet that stick is a dpad mirror, probably just a single speaker too.

Interesting item for sure.  Not a gpd by any stretch. They didn't even cover the screw holes on the side.  Easy to fix.

The Android is a strong selling point as you can always side load Robert Broglia's series of .EMU emulators if there's no Google  Play like on the Tlex. So you know the gaming will be smooth.

The big question is durability of the console and response of dpad and buttons.  How long can you play without it being uncomfortable?

Is that worth the 45 dollar gamble?  Hmmm

That thing has been around for years now. They must have had a giant warehouse of them and have slowly been selling off the stock they haven't already sold.

Makes sense.  What was the name of the old ones.  I'd like to Google it and find out more on it.

I've never seen it before so would be interested to know the original name too. I remember the JXD S7100 which looked kinda similar but not this one.

If all you can afford is ?35 then I don't think you can do better than this or the Tlex Ulike, at least they will play PS1 and Snes pretty well.

I believe it is the JXD S7100, just with a different shell

I don't think it's the s7100, it has shoulder buttons, a different control layout and the row of buttons on the right. Not the same board but very similar specs.

Definitely weird to see such an old chip in a device in 2018!

I bought a tlex ulike and it was junk. that does not mean they all are, the one i got though was. the tlex if working properly has way more power than the rs-97 and technically can do more. What the tlex won't have is community support. You also don't know if the controls are any good. personally, I would take the rs-97 anyday.

I would wait until there are more reviews of the Tlex, Retro Core's was pretty good. Ancient ARM or MIPS devices are still ancient though, remember the RS-97 can't do full speed Snes, GBA or even moderate speed PS1. Neither are going to be great as your main emulation handheld.

Personally I would save a bit more and grab a GPD XD, may be some good used deals on older ones when the new version is released.
