Nifty little device

Wanted to use my Retroid Pocket 2 a bit before leaving a review. Comes with a number of games available under the Retroid OS - most of these are fighting games, but couple of gems in there. Wasn't what I had got it for as wanted to re-play some of my older games.

The Android OS is a little difficult to navigate at first, and saving progress in game or changes to settings didn't work. Looked online for some FAQs and found out that need to save and close the emulator in the correct manner. Since then not had any problems and not lost a game save, and after using for a few days the menu screens become easier to navigate and can quickly jump into playing a game. Runs games smoothly up to PS1 and the battery seems to last for a long period of time between charges. You may need to charge at same time if playing for long periods of time with more graphic intense games.

Would recommend getting the screen protector and HDMI link cable at same time with this.

RETROID Pocket 2 Retro Gaming Handheld

Nice little console.exactly as described.my only issue is that it crashes on several emulators,but i put this down to the actual emulators and not the console.looking forward to more purchases from Droix.

A really solid system with a learning curve. Not as simple to set up as the Anbernic retro devices. But once you set it up and learn how to use it, the Retroid Pocket 2 is a great retro device with a ton of uses.

Awesome little device!

Amazing device! Emulates some systems that my pi based arcade! Takes a little but of setting up but once its done you don't have to do it again. Amazing service from droiX too super fast shipping and cheapest I could find in the UK! Will definitely be coming back

A tinkerer's dream!

If you want an inexpensive device to play the classic 16bit era stuff flawlessly, playable but glitchy N64/PS1 and choppy/sluggish DC/PSP with an option for HDMI out and WiFi for Retro Achievements then this is highly recommended. However it won't do this out of the box, you'll need to invest some serious time into setting things up and tinkering. DIG plus Retroarch works great for me. Now I'm past the tinkering stage and getting my portable Retro fix.
