Call JREF and tell them you can tell the difference. They'll set up a test and you could win a million dollars if you pass. Just like those audio fags who claimed they could tell when their gold plated jacks were plugged into their speakers lol

All those ching chong handhelds have one or two things wrong with them. Like 2 or 3 iterations away from being good.

If you want something that looks retro and doesn't have glaring issues get a Retroflag gpi case. Some setup required but not too hard.

From someone who autistically follows the chink console scene:
You want the RG350, it's the best retro handheld right now. It can emulate games up to the PSX, and it has a dual analog control setup.
A smaller and cheaper option is the LDK Game. This one can only emulate certain non-demanding PSX games, but everything GBA/SNES and below is fine.
Anyway, if you're going to get a RPi case then the RetroGamePi is your best bet. It has an analog stick, and is meant for the more compact Compute Module version of the RPi3. If I were you I'd get one of the handhelds above, though, they're much better little systems.
By the way, for the RG350 and LDK you really ought to install CFW on them. It makes the emulators perform much better, and it's only a matter of flashing an image to an SD card using dd.

>> No.6047629

What about the game kiddy 350h? Looks like it's the same thing as the RG350 just with a better control layout.

Not for long. "You are here forever" is a lie. One day, I will become the Unaboomer, and live a happy life in my cabin safe from peeping eyes.

If you want power: Pi 3 Based Handheld
If you want something GB styled: RG300
If you want something GBA styled: RG350
That's the best you're going to get right now but it's subject to change in the future.
If they did a Pi Zero 2 or a Compute Module 4 then you'd see something very impressive out there but until then Ingenic-based devices and Pi Zero Handhelds are the status quo.

Pretty good actually.

Based on some of the videos they seem to run...alright I guess. Yeah a bit of hickups but since I'm not really going to be playing fighting and racing games (never really could get into them) feel it's workable. I'm guessing Ape Escape will have issues however which would be a fucking shame.

Tbh I'm not really sure why people want to emulate PSX on a handheld or phone when you can just buy a PSP for $30.

I have one. Ape escape, SOTN, THPS 1-3, JoJo's, SfEX2, Gran Turismo 2, Blitz 2001 all run 100% perfect. I couldn't get MK trilogy to run but I think it was a rom issue. Mutant Academy 2 and Tekken 3 ran like shit. Overall I was very surprised and impressed. And there's an active community working of compatibility all the time.

you can root just about mainstream android phone, install IineageOS, totally disable wifi and 4G, and remove all "analytics" or whatever. as for the camera, you can gorge it out yourself or just put a damn sticker on it. are you retarded? Snowden already gave out detailed instructions on how to do all that too.

>install IineageOS
LineageOS contains (((binary blobs))). Install Replicant instead.
Besides, that still won't save you from the compromised propietary bootloader and the backdoored modem processor which has TOTAL access to the CPU. Not to mention the fact that all your calls can be recorded, and your exact location can be found using tower triangulation.
>totally disable wifi and 4G
Yes, "disable". I won't trust your "disable" button unless power is physically cut from the hardware.
>as for the camera, you can gorge it out yourself or just put a damn sticker on it
Extra, unnecessary effort.
>Snowden already gave out detailed instructions on how to do all that too.
Snowden, while a good whistleblower, does not always give the best of advice. For example, he recommends Purism laptops which have the ME backdoor.
>lelel nothing to hide nothing to fear
Yes. But who will protect the ones that DO have something to hide? For their sake, we must abolish these systems of surveillance.
Democracy is not possible without assurance that the people can revolt against authority if it gets corrupt. Otherwise, our presidents might as well be kings.

End to end encryption is the only acceptable method of using an enemy's channels of communication period. As far as irrational paranoia about a gaming device spying on you, disconnecting antennas is trivial, including cutting traces. Antennas are easy to identify unless you're a full on tinfoil hat person.
