    What would be better in terms of emulation performance?

    I know the Pi3 with retropie is a popular option for a lot of people but wouldn't a cheap Chinese android box give a similar level of performance or possibly even better?

    The Pi 3 is not as fast as a lot of the android boxes out there. Personally I would use this https://store.treats4geeks.com/index.php/pixiepro-27.html

    If you want an android box that is cheap, using a Nexus Player works for emulation and is cheap to buy. I am not sure if it is cheap to get one in your area however.
