They’re coming thick and fast now! PowKiddy are the latest brand to hop on the hype train with their re-imagining of HardKernel’s Odroid-Go Advance. The new PowKiddy RGB10 is yet another OGA clone just released. It bears a striking resemblance to the Q90 released earlier this year, but of course this time it’ll be powered by RockChip’s RK3326.
I know I’m late to the party with this one, but it would be a shame to not review the RG350M. Some of the recent reviews on this site haven’t been what you would call glowing, and it’s rare that you come across a handheld quite as good as this. So to prove I’m not just an old stick in the mud who likes to whinge, have a read of some nice things I have to say in the Anbernic RG350M review.
Out of nowhere, the PowKiddy V90 has popped up on AliExpress today. Rumour has it that the PowKiddy V90 is the same hardware as the original PocketGo, but made to fit inside a clamshell reminiscent of the GBA SP.
On the face of it the Q400 has a lot of things going for it. It was always going to be overshadowed somewhat by the more powerful RK2020, but judged on its own merit it’s quite an intriguing little machine. Unfortunately it hasn’t panned out well for the Q400 yet. I haven’t written it off yet though, there may be hope. Read on for the Supbor Q400 review.
It’s difficult to know where to begin the RK2020 review. The moral high ground regarding cloned hardware is probably not it. It’d be easy to dismiss the RK2020 as a lazy copycat device, attempting to cash in on the good work of HardKernel. Whilst it’s true that the RK2020 wouldn’t exist without the OGA, this hobby usually treads a legal grey area one way or another. There is no proprietary hardware inside the Odroid-Go Advance, so whilst it might be cheeky to build 100% compatible hardware, given the success of the OGA it’s hardly a surprise to see.
In one of the strangest moves from a gaming company I have ever seen, Sega have decided to celebrate their 60th anniversary by releasing a collection of ludicrously small Game Gear Micro handhelds.
It’s been a long time since that first batch of Odroid-Go Advance’s started shipping out back in January. The devices quickly sold out and many people have been waiting months for HardKernel to announce fresh stock. Well, the wait is over as HardKernel releases the revised Odroid-Go Advance version 1.1. Read on to see what’s changed.
We all knew it would happen eventually. Chinese manufacturers have seen the success of the Odroid-Go Advance and decided to get in on the action. There are probably more of these to come in future, but the RK2020 is the first Odroid-Go Advance clone to hit the market.
The PowKiddy X2 is a pretty brazen attempt to cash in on the aesthetics of the original Nintendo Switch, even by Chinese standards. But hey, at least they switched the colours over! Whilst the PowKiddy X2 is a Nintendo Switch lookalike, it should be no surprise that underneath that Neon Red and Blue colourway it’s another story.
