  1. Runs perfectly on my device. Barely any hiccups if at all.

    65.4%
  2. Runs at a reasonable speed. Could be faster.

    9.4%
  3. Pretty choppy, but still playable.

    2.4%
  4. Abysmal speed. No reason to use this.

    3.1%
  5. I don't need a DS Emulator; I already have a DS Lite/R4/i

    I run this on my Galaxy SIII, SIV, and Shield Portable, and they all run games full speed. I just find it difficult on the shield because it sucks running anything vertically, but hey - ACTUAL BUTTONS!

    I doubt it, DraStic was a "from scratch" emulator fully optimized for ARM processors, instead of an open-source port of a PC-made emulator.

    So far for Android, Drastic IS the best DS emulator. In my Xiaomi mi6 all the games i want at full speed even looking better than they used to.

    Well how come it runs like crap on the Switch. When the Switch is the same thing as Nvidia Shield.

    DraStic is not available on the switch. All DS emulation you've seen on the switch is either some melonDS or desmume fork.

    all I know is I have had it on my galaxy s9 + since the day I bought the phone and it is by far the best ds emulator for android runs full speed.
