Retroid Pocket 2 vs Anbernic RG351P: Definitive Analysis

The Retroid Pocket 2 and Anbernic RG351P have been out long enough for me to give both extensive time and a definitive opinion of both. When I score devices,  I keep price and $ for $ value always in mind so I no longer use price as a category. The RP2 is slightly cheaper than the RG351P. The 351P has more out of the box appeal but the RP2 catches up to it in many areas if you are willing to put in some work. If you are a complete beginner to these kind of devices,  the 351P may suit you a little better.  I originally scored the RP2 a 8.5/10 and the 351P an 8/10. Community support and new developments during the first 6 months to a year of any new open source style system definitely has some big effects... Going Head 2 Head:  Retroid Pocket 2 = 8.5/10  RG351P = 7.4/10 What really drags the 351P down is the screen size, lack of built in WiFi and battery performance. If it weren't for those three issues it might have been a LOT better.  SCREEN   Retroid Pocket
