The TrimUI Model S is one of those handhelds that just appeared out of nowhere at the end of last year. Not much was known about the company behind it or the device itself. Now that it’s been available for a few months and the software has matured a little, let’s take a proper look at the little gadget.
After a lengthy and slightly worrisome stint at the sorting office in Heathrow, my GPD XD Plus finally arrived on a warm morning back in April 2018. I used it on the stock firmware for nearly 3 years before reading an interesting update regarding Android 10. At this point I decided it might be time to revisit the GPD XD Plus.
When rumblings of the PocketGo S30 first started it was due to be another RK3326 OGA clone device. They even went with the same 3:2 ratio 480×320 display in preparation. But I know from speaking to the BittBoy/PocketGo team that they’re not keen on EmuELEC as it can be difficult to get to grips with. At some point they decided to try and keep things simple by going a different direction, whilst for whatever reason (possibly price) also going with different hardware.
Anbernic’s latest handheld is the same old hardware in a shiny new shell. The original LDK first pushed this design style, but Anbernic have improved and polished it. The dinky little Anbernic RG280V is cute as a button, but do we need it?
We’ve all become quite used to a bit of a fanfare when a new handheld gets announced. Promo videos, pre-orders, even the occasional countdown. But sometimes one just appears out of nowhere, and in those cases they’re usually not worth the plastic they’re made from. But not always! Let’s have a look at the Family Pocket FC3000.

The PowKiddy V90 quietly appeared on AliExpress a few weeks ago now. Styled after the GBA SP, this little clamshell handheld piqued some interest due in part to its smart looking design and low price. Read on for the PowKiddy V90 review.
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.
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.
The highly anticipated release of RetroPie for the RPi4 was the excuse I needed to grab a RPi4, as well as a nice case to house it in. After hunting around I eventually settled on the Argon One RPi4 case. It’s a very reasonably priced aluminium alloy case with both active and passive cooling, and some other clever tricks up its sleeve.
