To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought two, one for each of my kiddos. It is awful, very cheap, and feels flimsy. It doesn't have as many games as advertised but does have many different variations of the same games. When the battery dies it just dies, no warning. When charging you have to guess when the battery is charged. One of them has a loose port already so I will probably send them both back if I can find the boxes (my children moved them & now the boxes are lost, lol). I also received a card to upgrade the games to newer better devices with an email but I believe that is a scam. I emailed them and received an email back that said I will be contacted soon about my free upgrades but noone got back to me. That's some bulls**t, why don't this scammer send the upgraded one instead of the old one in the first damn place? Please beware
I don’t know how this game console has so many good reviews. Bought this for a birthday present. Noticed right away how lightweight and cheap it felt. The first one I purchased - the usb cord couldn’t plug in, it was made incorrectly. Plus the first game on the device didn’t even work. They replaced it and it work for about the first 60 minutes of play, but then it started having issues. It would turn on and the screen would go out. You could still hear the game, but couldn’t see anything. I returned it. I would not buy again.
These are very cheaply made devices. I ordered two and one of them came out of the box with the battery charging port broken. So it cannot be charged. I was not able to return them because they were a gift and were not opened until after the return date. They do not stay charged very long and are easily breakable.
I bought this because of all the good reviews. It arrived during the blackout, which was useful, and worked fine for about a week. After then, it started to glitch constantly, and would randomly turn off. The only time it worked was when connected to the wall, which defeats the purpose of the second controller. I returned it.
Gave this to my son for Christmas. He just opened it up in the beginning of Feb to use. It no longer works. The port where it plugs in pushed in when we went to plug it in. My husband took it apart to see if he could fix it and found that all of the parts are just placed inside and nothing it really soldered down to hold it all together. We now realize why this is so cheap because it will break after a month of use.
I bought 2 of them for my son .. one worked fine and the other stopped working after a day .. I exchanged it and even the exchanged one stopped working after a week and there is no exchange on it .. so it's a bet if u buy ... But when it works it's sure is fun .. even I was playing Mario on it
The handheld is working well, but the controller allowing us to play against each other, on the tv does not work. I ordered a second one in case I just got a bad one. It doesn't work either. My grandson was looking forward to this feature most of all. I contacted the seller about the controllers and have not received any response.
I tried to like this product. Its budget friendly. It has a long battery life. The games library is large, even though some are freeware or overseas versions. It even came with a second controller for free. The only problem with this product is a major one. The D pad is loose and "wonky". So you will never know which way the player character is going to go. Which makes 99% of the games you play, unplayable. Sad really, because other than that. Its a solid product.
It stopped working after a using it a few times! We had a feeling it was a not going to last after the first use, we had to reset it immediately. The controller was useless. After a week, it completely stopped working.
