Upcoming: Upgrade Your Retroid Pocket 2 to A RP2+

[Update 10/30: Pre-Order Available Now at GoRetroid.com   (Ships by December] https://www.retrokezins.com/2021/10/retroid-pocket-25-pcb-upgrade-and-rp2.html Retroid Pocket 2+ PCB Upgrade DIY FTW Rumors about the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus and the Retroid Pocket 3 have been around since last year.

Overall Score - 8.3/10 There's a lot to like about the GameForce and some things to not like but the high res 4:3 screen on a horizontal RK3326 device with awesome ergonomics make this one a great 4:3 option just slightly behind the 351V overall .  GameForce Gaming Handheld CPU: ROCK-CHIP RK3326 Quad-core Cortex-A35 up to 1.5Ghz GPU: Mali-G31MP2 Memory: 1GB DDR3L Screen: 3.45 inches TFT IPS screen, non OCA Resolution 640X480, Response time 10-15ms, Viewing angle 85 degree Charge and Data port: USB-Type C Charging voltage: 5V. 2A Battery: 3000 mAh Memory Card support: TF card, up to 512GB WiFi: WiFi Built-in, 2.4Ghz band Backlights: 7 Colors LEDs Dual Speakers Dual Joysticks (ALPS, same as PS VITA) Dual Vibration Motors System: EmuELEC and RetroArch (Officially supported by EmuELEC with a 4.1 build specific to the GameForce) Scores are always fairly arbitrary when going from reviewer to reviewer and subjective. I often debate whether to even use them but 8.3/10 is my est
