Ordered A V2 Miyoo Mini

  I went ahead and ordered a V2 Miyoo Mini in blue this time. It looks a lot better than the toothpaste white V1 version I'm using now.  The V2 has a better screen,  improved d-pad/face button action and slightly better battery Performance, so it was hard to say no. Hopefully I receive it within 3-4 weeks so I can let you know.  I feel like the V2 still at the sub $60 pricepoint with a few slight improvements paired with the much improved OnionOS CFW will likely bump things up to a 9/10 type Score from me. https://www.retrokezins.com/2021/12/miyoo-mini-review-micro-retro-game.html

PowKiddy Q36 Mini Marketing Photos

The PowKiddy Q36 Mini came out the other day. On paper it's powerful enough to run "most" PS1 (PSX) games well and is on the tiny size of micro handhelds. $59.99 placing it firmly in the budget realm.  Using Open Dingux as the OS is really the only thing that makes this an interesting option considering we are currently in the middle of a wave of mostly Android handhelds.  US $59.99  30%OFF | POWKIDDY NEW Q36 Mini 1.5 Inch Ips Screen Open Source Handheld Game players Keychain Mini Console Children's Gifts https://a.aliexpress.com/_mLsE6vq Personally, I have no interest in this one at that price given that the size makes it's hard to use with big hands. PowKiddy is not known for build quality as well, so I  think you can do better for less money, but this is still a semi-interesting micro handheld option. From the video,  it doesn't look like a high quality build.  Here are the official marketing photos from PowKiddy:
