    I'm not sure that Android is in a state to compare. I mean, this is a homebrew solution that I, in my personal "Homebrew Completeness Scale" that I just named this moment, isn't really as complete as most of the stuff made for Horizon or even running plain 'ole Ubuntu. You can't dock (yet), and wireless controllers don't work (yet). But it's received more development and updates than Android for Switch has at this point. Doesn't mean anything about the performance of the two solutions, (I'm itching to try things out with this update real soon and maybe looking at Android if I'm desperately curious, new configurations and all that take time that is shorter than usual for yours truly because he has to get up earlier tomorrow) but if you were to ask me which of the two I think have the most potential, it would be Android. It's just not a good point of comparison right now like trying to compare an ODroid XU4 to a full, official build of RetroPie on the RPi4 as opposed to some guy tinkering around and getting things like reicast going.

    As for Dolphin, I'm not saying that it's impossible that we won't get it running up to some extent. I ran it on Ubuntu, and I was able to play through the arcade mode with Maxi no problem at 45-50 FPS when the chips were OC'ed. It's impressive that the Switch can even do that, but we're talking about running an emulator that, even on a fully powered Nvidia Shield TV that doesn't have a battery for portability to worry about, can be a struggle with some games to run. If you want something of a more practical ceiling where performance is concerned, I'd say Reicast or Flycast on RetroArch is more realistic of a goal to achieve.

    Besides, outside of a few earlier entries of some game franchises like Luigi's Mansion and Pikmin and the Metroid Prime Trilogy (which I think is money being left on the table for Nintendo in terms of ports given what the Switch is capable of in terms of control options), I don't see myself wanting to play Melee over Ultimate unless I'm feeling really nostalgic and/or want to poke fun at FOX VS. FOX! FINAL DESTINATION! 3 STOCKS! NO ITEMS! NO HAZARDS! AND A COMPETITIVE COMMUNITY THAT'S NOT EXACTLY THE BEST COMPARED TO THE FGC FROM WHAT I'VE HEARD, AND THAT'S SAYING SOMETHING!

    WW and Sunshine both run full speed in lakka with 1700 overclock. WW has slowdowns in the battle with gannon and maybe 1 other time throughout otherwise perfect. As an emulation device I seriously doubt android will outperform ubuntu or lakka.

    i never got ubuntu running on my switch, but dolphin runs pretty well for me (tested wind waker, mario kart, sonic adventure 2 - pretty slow). i saw someone say that bluetooth controllers don’t work but i was playing wind walker with my pro controller

    Lakka doesnt need anything to be flashed, you download 2 files from the link, drop them onto your sd, run with hekate. The overclock options are literally in the first dropdown menu. GPU/CPU overclock you cannot miss them.
