Moga controller + Android + RetroArch = Some pretty nice mobile emulationJun 1, 2016
I used to have a WP and besides a few NES/GBA emulators, you really couldn't emulate much on it. I recently picked up a cheap $130 Android phone at Best Buy. The Samsung Galaxy Express Prime. It has a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 Exynos 3475 Quad CPU, a Mali-T720 GPU, and 1.5GB of RAM. It's also running on the latest version of Android (6.0.1 Marshmallow). It also has a 720p super AMOLED screen. I typically get about 5-6 hours of screen on time. Now I've recently bought a Moga controller and downloaded RetroArch from the Play Store. I just have to say... WOW. This thing even plays PS1 games full speed and it was still cheaper then my 3DS (phone and controller combined). Honestly I haven't really used my 3DS in a month or two because the emulation is just so much better on my phone (and that's all I really used my 3DS for). Anyone looking to play emulated games on the go should seriously consider Android. It's cheap (around the same price as a 3DS for a phone and controller with decent performance), doesn't need to be jailbroken or hacked (unlike iOS and 3DS), and it just feels higher quality and polished (compared to 3DS emulators).

The Raspberry Pi 3 is a surprisingly versatile and fast little computer.Apr 14, 2016
I can't believe it's only $35. I'm running Ubuntu on my Pi (because Debian is for fedora wearing, hat tipping losers ) and it runs better then I ever imagined it would. I just got done playing SimCity 2000 in DOSBox with a couple of tabs open in Firefox at the same and it didn't slow down at all. I'm genuinely impressed. This computer is perfect for people who need a cheap machine for light web browsing and word processing.
