As technology has progressed, the ability to emulate our favourite games from decades ago has become a simple task for the more powerful platforms of today. The JXD S7800b, is a quad core Android tablet built for nothing but gaming.

Coming equipped with dual analog sticks, a D-Pad, fourteen buttons and a generously sized screen, anyone taking a quick glance could be easily forgiven for assuming the JXD S7800b is a rival to Sony’s PS Vita. While bearing some similarities on the outside, this Android gaming handheld isn’t built to take on the mainstream market, but instead to provide a fantastic platform for playing games from Google’s Play Store.

To give a bit of background, over the last five years we’ve all seen a rise in mobile gaming from Angry Birds to Flappy Bird. This new playing field in everyone’s pocket has brought non-gamers out of the woodwork, resulting in a massive boom known as casual gaming. In between these mind-numbing challenges though is the occasional decent title which makes for great gaming on the go. The likes of Sega’s Sonic CD mobile port and Super Hexagon have justified the use of touchscreen enable devices, but as retro gamers, we’ve all felt that these modern titles could do with more tactile controls - and this, is where the JXD S7800b steps in.

Not only are the physical controls on the JXD S7800b compatible with a wide range of apps, but the handheld also provides a solution for the touchscreen only titles. Using the handheld’s key-mapper tool, commands can be dragged and positioned over existing touchscreen controls and then mapped to the physical controls - allowing your actions on the D-Pad and the like to be translated into touch, leaving you to take full control of your game of choice.

As great as this is for modern gamers who enjoy touchscreen affairs, the JXD S7800b has a far greater potential to be tapped into. With a wealth of game emulators around on the Google Play Store, retro gamers should take note that this handheld could easily become their system of choice over all the originals. From ZX Spectrum to Sega Dreamcast, this under-appreciated handheld can handle them all, and with style.
