So, my phone as it turns out, ain't that great at all for emulation. I mean, it runs them, but the 58 Hz refresh rate really ruins the experience. Well that, and the small 3.5" LCD screen. So naturally, I've been looking a a myriad of Android-based devices to sate my emulation needs. Now, there are few stipulations to this, things that I want established as I post The PSP for homebrew, and why I wish to avoid it: =============================== -Snes emulation, as of now, Snes9x is based off of 1.43, before Blarrg implemented the cycle-accurate S-SMP emulator of his, which passes all the SPC700 hardware tests. What does this mean? Horribly inaccurate audio. For anyone who needs elaboration, I'd be willing to do ABX testing to compare Snes9x on the PSP to Snes9x 1.53 There is a beta port of 1.53 in the works, it's being test but at the time of writing, I don't know how it fairs. If it can be resolved, I might consider a PSP. Summary - Sound is way off -The interlacing issue on the screens, this leads to ghosting and fast-paced games look blurry a lot of the time. As for other no-name Chinese tablets ======================= -JXD SX7800 or whatever it's called, has a bad kernel, many HDMI out issues, 58 Hz screen tearing, nonfunctional right control stick, to name a few. Also, finding a good retailer for them proves difficult. -GCW Zero, same issue as PSP, currently no Snes emulator based off of Snes9x 1.52, therefore, this truly kills the experience, knowing full well how bad pre 1.52 audio is. For other tablets, they often require an external controller if you wish to avoid using touch controls. This is where the nVidia Shield portable comes into play, at $200, you have a very potent Tegra4 device that has a built in controller, nice 720p HD screen, and 1080p HDMI out via mini HDMI. Decent battery life, SD card slot, headphone jack, it's truly an awesome device. What do you guys think, any suggestions or things to add to this at all?
