My Boy! GBA Emulator


Many of us remember the good ol’ days of the GameBoy Advance, but unfortunately they’re now considered a thing of the past. That’s where My Boy! GBA Emulator comes in. Bring your old games back to life on your Android device. The UI is easy to navigate, save your game in a snap, and even learn how to launch the games via your desktop. This is one of my personal favorites. On my Galaxy S7 Edge, My Boy! GBA Emulator runs flawlessly while playing almost any games. There are a few strange slow spots here and there, but the majority of the emulator runs flawlessly.


DraStic DS Emulator


With DraStic DS Emulator, you can now play your Nintendo DS games, on your Android device. Your favorite interactive games at your fingertips, on your smartphone or tablet. One of the cool things about this app is that you can you use an external controller, making it even more fun to use.
Sync your games with Google Drive, customize some of the features, and even increase your emulation speed if the game is a little too slow for your taste.


SuperRetro16 (SNES)


Every 90’s kid will appreciate this one: SuperRetro16 (SNES). Remember the games you knew and loved from your Super Nintendo Entertainment System? Now you can jog your memory by downloading SuperRetro16 (SNES), and play them again for years to come. The cool thing about apps like this is that you no longer have to wish that your kids would’ve experienced the games that you had as a child, because now you can show them.
One of the awesome things about SuperRetro16 (SNES) is that there’s cloud syncing across all your devices, making your games available to play, whenever you want to, in whatever form you decide.


Nostalgia.NES Pro


The Nostalgia.NES Pro is the perfect emulator for the “modern” nerd. The simplistic design is not only fun, but it’s also customizable. Resize the buttons to suit your preferences, easily save your game, and the best part? The ability to rewind. Yes, you can rewind your game to alter the result of your last move, possibly saving your character from utter destruction.


My OldBoy! GBC Emulator


The My OldBoy! GBC Emulator is similar to the My OldBoy! GBA emulator, but it’s specifically for GameBoy Color games rather than Gameboy Advance games. You can easily change the color palette of your game and even launch games from your desktop. This emulator is neat because it has customizable controls and has special features, such as link cable and tilt sensors. This particular emulator also takes advantage of ARM Assembly code, allowing you to easily get to 60 frames-per-second on even low-end devices. I tried out a Super Mario Bros. Deluxe ROM on this emulator, and it runs great!


ePSXe


ePSXe is an amazing emulator to bring Playstation (PSX and PSOne) to your Android phone or tablet. Go multiplayer with up to 4 players, or play by yourself. With a 99% compatability rate, you can play all your favorites, use external controls, awesome save features, cheat codes, shaders, filters, and more!


MD.emu


Sega Genesis is back and better than ever with MD.emu. This emulator features on screen controls with gun support, accurate sound, cheat codes, and automatic save. The best kind of blast from the past, The original Sonic the Hedgehog has never looked so good as on your Android phone/tablet! The benefit of this emulator is that it’s a Sega Genesis emulator, meaning it’s older, and as a result, it’s easier to find perfectly legal ROMs from places likewww.archive.org.


FPse


FPse is one of the best emulators out there for the original PlayStation, especially because of the stunningly high resolution, offering some amazing graphics. In this well-thought-out app, you’ll find it’s never been easier to use an emulator. There’s 10 different game pads to choose from, multiplayer options, a cheat code search engine, and when you download the app, it’ll search your device for PlayStation games and automatically match them with covers. It makes things look neat, organized, and overall very professional.

Cubot X16 coming in July 2016


Filip Reznicek | 8:00 AM | , , , , ,


Looking at the specs it’s pretty clear we are not dealing with any kind of a high-end device, but an oldschool lowend. Not anything from the ultra budget segment though, the quad-core MT6735A processor clocked at 1,3 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage are quite alright specs. Rest of the specs include 5-inch OGS display with 2.5D curve and HD resolution , 13 Mpix rear camera with autofocus and 8 Mpix front one with Intelligent beauty function. Battery will have 2700 mAh capacity and Android 6.0 Marshmallow is going to preinstalled. Phone will be available with hybrid dual SIM slot so either two SIMs or SIM + microSD card.

Cubot X16 dimensions are 143,5 x 69,4 x 7 mm and the price haven’t been revealed yet. But with such specs its surely in the sub-$100 range for sure. From the pictures lying around you can see that design-wise the Cubot X16 does pretty well too, but still it would need something more to stand out better in the sea of similar phones.
