Over all this is a good hand held. The buttons feel good and are very responsive. The screen looks sharp and colors are vibrant. The sound though a bit tinny at times sounds fine. All buttons are plastic but are not harsh on the fingers. At first I was thinking the A & B Button placement would be problematic but I found that your thumb can rock back and forth on them easy. The small size makes it very portable and is perfect for someone who finds themselves waiting around more often than not.
I’ve really enjoyed this so far. It is definitely small, about the size of a deck of cards. But all the games play great. The size is actually a positive in my mind, because it fits in my laptop bag or coat pocket with ease. It’s a no frills operating system, which means it’s not full of bloatware you don’t care about. It’s quick to turn on and off. The games load fast and I haven’t had any issues with the play quality.
I was a little taken with how small this device truly is, more so that I've watched video reviews prior to my purchase and I always thought it would be bigger than it's actual size - but this is a Retro "boy" after all. When I received the product, it came pre-loaded with +900 games, 75% battery for out of box game play, a charge cable and a mini manual. I was one of the unfortunate few who received a screen that was slightly detached but easily replaceable screen, but also had a hairline scratch in the top-middle bezel of the screen. It doesn't effect my line of sight during game play, but it's still a little annoying that it had this scratch prior to me taking it out of the box. The sound coming from this small speaker is fairly loud, but does come across as tinny at it's louder moments, but given the device it has great feedback. The buttons are solid and responsive, but the common complaint of the L+R bottons on the back of the device are a chore to press with my larger, thicker fingers (average male sized hand). Screen has a nice back light that you can adjust for whichever scenery you plan on playing this device no matter how dark or bright it may be. During some gameplay, you will notice some frame rate delays - but no different that you would experience through other dated handhelds that are not projecting 3D images. Overall, I'm satisfied with this product, it serves it's purpose for reliving some nostalgic gaming while having the efficiency of being mobile while doing it. I would and have recommended.
