While most of us are probably waiting to see what the S7800 has to offer, here come JXD with a new handheld that probably isn’t going to impress many people. The S5110B is an incremental upgrade to the S5110 which adds dual analog (are they real analog? no idea! are they implemented properly? probably not!) and the same AmLogic MX dual core processor already found in the S7300.
Forgive me for the pessimism but I’m sure I’m not alone in growing tired of these JXD and Yinlips machines. It could be that they got it right in this one, but if they did it’ll be nothing but a fluke. I’m beginning to think that for a flawless Android gaming experience the best bets are going to be Ouya and Shield, and that’s unfortunate. Maybe when (if?) RockChip follow through on their promise of becoming a “more open” company and team up with a well established and respected manufacturer we could see the “perfect” device come from China, but until then I’ll probably be giving these things a miss.
If anyone’s confident enough to give this thing a try then, as usual, you can head on over to Willgoo for some more pics and to place a pre-order.
