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.
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.
