Two Best Under $60 Micro Retro Game Handheld Options

 The market is packed full of "cheap" handhelds, but there aren't many under $60 that are actually good. Two that stick far out of the crowd are the PowKiddy V90 (I have three of them) and the Miyoo Mini (I only have 2 for now). Your best option for ordering either of these at a reasonable price is from the official PowKiddy and Miyoo stores on AliExpress. There are two new versions of the Mini coming out soon as well (translucent blue and translucent black).  Miyoo Mini  The Miyoo Mini sells for between $50 and $60 on average and is well worth the price. The ergonomic design has a premium feel and good for long gaming seasons which is unusual for a handheld this small. Flashing CFW on the Mini is essential and not the most user friendly process so I can only highly recommend this device to people who are fluent in firmware flashing processes or willing to read directions and learn.  My Miyoo Mini Review (Hasn't Been Updated for the latest OnionOS): https://www.retrok

Picked up Another Powkiddy V90

For the price its hard to beat the Powkiddy V90 in the $30-$40 range. Figured I'd pick up the red version (looks orange to me but that's fine).  This system does have a little screen tearing here and there and minor issues but for the price its well worth it.  Its pretty easy to upgrade to a different firmware as well.  Due to the price i have this one reviewed as an 8.3/10 at $35.  Real shame they don't make an upgraded premium version of this one though with a better shell. The d-pad, buttons and shoulders are crisp though and worth every penny if you pay under$40.  https://www.retrokezins.com/p/reviews.html I haven't done a new full review write up on this one considering how old it is but I might at some point. Some people smack talk the quality but I haven't seen anything in the 30-40 range that beat it.   What Others Are Saying: https://retroconsoletalk.com/powkiddy-v90/ Retro GameCorps on YouTube: https://youtu.be/3BHkqP7BhSY
