  1. Hello
    Highly recommended Lknotztt site company Aodim really fast excellent service recommended.

  2. Any hints on buying from these sites on how long they take and if there are any extra fees? I’m assuming these handhelds are shipping from China usually, so may take a few weeks and there would be some kind of import taxes to pay in the US.

      Mostly these things ship from China, occasionally places like Banggood and DX ship items from an EU/USA warehouse but they don’t usually have a wide selection of items available to order that way. You can expect to wait up to 4 weeks from the day they shipped the item for it to arrive, often it takes less time than that and sometimes it takes longer. You don’t really have to worry about import tax, they label items as a gift with a very low value and in the UK at least they just slip straight through.

  3. Can you please add our website?

    We specialize in handheld emulators and we are adding android handhelds and tablets in the near future!

    Thank you!

  5. sells some, but it was Chinese New Year when I ordered mine, so it took forever, do they shipped it for free.

  6. It is pity that removing zhuzhuchina from list, it is good shop, and volumerates is close down, long time ago. Most shame that almost all shop reduce a number and variety of Obscure handhelds for sell.

    1. i’ve added zhuzhuchina… i saw some people on gbatemp who have ordered from there successfully so i guess it’s legit. and i’ve altered volumerates to volumerate, which is still up and running.

    I think you should add sunsky-online. I have purchased many things there and never regret. I always compare price within this site, and And for me not bad.You can compare their price and choose your shipping method.

    Thats my suggestion. Thanks.

    1. That one’s new to me, I’ll check it out – thanks.

  8. good

  9. Really appreciate this list. These chinese sites baffle yet entertain me, and on rare occasions persuade me to part with real money. The paper models, however I am still trying to get my head around, they are amazing. Still didn’t manage to find a NEO FAMI even in that exhaustive list, guess I should just give it up. Thanks again for collating this.

  10. Thanks, very curious those sites ^^
