    Hey guys. I've been researching a lot on how people are using Dolphin on their Android devices. I downloaded it on my Samsung Galaxy S8 and got playable (but not perfect) results. I have the Snapdragon 835 processor by the way. I've attached a little bit of me playing Super Mario Sunshine and was wondering how well you guys got dolphin running on your AndroidOS devices. P.S. sorry for the small screen. I used a free recording app. EDIT: I just realized that show FPS was off. Whenever I turned it on and wasn't recording, it hung out at about 21 FPS

    well... I use a xperia z5 compact... it uses snapdragon 810 (you know... the one that burns a lot and is like 40% less powerful than snapdragon 835)

    there are many old gamecube games that can be played at "kind of stable" 60fps like digimon rumble arena 2... mario party 4 and 5 (didn't try 6 and 7) also super smash bros brawl is full playable (I don't know why smash bros melee didn't run at full speed)...

    other games like TLoZ TP runs at full speed in dungeons... but in the outsides it runs at 5fps...

    I am really impressed with the actual emulation of dolphin in android... maybe waiting a couple of years... the next gen smartphones will handle all the games at full speed...

    Been trying the nightly builds, not much improvements, and I use Nvidia Shield tv, It has a Tegra X1 by the way. Can just nearly play sonic adventure 2 battle, tough the dreamcast emulator Reicast R7 works a lot better and faster (minus some graphic problems)

    A Dolphin emulator for Android? Sweet. I doubt it'll run at a decent framerate on my phone (PSP hardly can) but worth a try just to see it running. :P
