JXD S7300 Android Gamepad 2


Being a fan of both retro and modern games the JXD S7300 Android Gamepad 2 with its Android OS and tablet functions really appealed to me.

Were currently working on the full JXD S7300 review, and thought we would share some hands on photos with the device and give you a few details.

Based around 7-inch touch screen, the Gamepad 2 isn’t as small our compact as a Nintendo 3DS or even PSP, but the large display and flexibility of the Android 4.1 OS really make this budget game system a good look.

Our test unit was supplied by Chinapadmall, and came with pre-installed emulators for Playstation One, N64, Neo Geo, GBA, Super Famicom (Super Nintendo), Famicom (NES), and Sega Genesis (Megadrive). ROMs for each emulator can either be installed from an SD card, or via the built-in Game X cloud centre, however there are only a small selection of titles on offer at the moment.

Android games can be installed via the Google Play store, or even JXD’s own app store which both have offer all the latest Android games.

JXD S7300 gamepad 2 hands on

Currently I’ve only played around with the games which came on the JXD S7300 which include Dead Trigger, and a number of retro titles including Mario 64, and I’ve found all games to run very well, although with various levels of compatibility with the physical controls.

Speaking of controls the Gamepad 2 features dual analogue sticks, and joypad, 4 action buttons, dual shoulder buttons on either side and any number of on-screen controls.

We’ll have a full review up in a few days so keep posted.

    Can’t wait for the review of this one. I’ve been going on and off about buying this handheld, and now I finally have a review to go on about it! Also, you owe me some Newman N2 benchmark scores. 🙂

    I’m updating the N2 to the latest version of the ROM now. Quadrant scores on the way. You might also want to hold-off buying the Gamepad 2 as I have a feeling that a Gizchina giveaway is coming soon 😉

    Archos Gamepad is a non-starter. Buttons instead of a real dpad alone would kill it for me. It only has a single shoulder button on each side. The screen and battery also get bad reviews, and it even costs more than the S7300b.

    All that said, do you prefer the Archos because you bought one, and feel like it was a good decision, or because you work for Archos?

    The Archos gamepad and this are almost the same, only the JXD has TWO shoulder buttons on each side and the Archos is 199.99 dollars.

    How many emulators, and roms does this come loaded with out of the box?

    Which emulators does it come with other than the n64/ps1 emulator?

    I find JXD products are more expensive than they would have to be. It’s hilarious to think this android console is only a little cheaper than PS Vita, which is more powerful and the screen is far better, despite of only being 5″. Of course, they are not comparable, because they are made for different purposes, but I think $100 would be a nicer price. They can of course, PIPO S1 tablet is more powerful and it is under $90!.

    IMHO I think they should change their prices policy.

    Hello, I am still deciding weather to purchase the Archos Gamepad, or the S7300. I have pretty much decided on the s7300, but can still be persueded. I was wondering how the screen on the s7300 is what the build quality is like, and if the analog sticks are nice? And also, what do you prefer? Please help me decide.
