RK2020 Retro Handheld Console



The RK2020 Retro Handheld Console is another retro games console with high performance and low power consumption. But this one may be special, as it is the best one I have played yet.

The RK2020 comes with a 1.3GHZ RockChip RK3326 CPU with 1GB DDR3L RAM a 2,600 MAH battery and a 32GB Internal SD Card. Also, there’s USB-C charging, headphone jack and a USB-A port for a Wifi dongle or controller. The big plus for this is the OS is Retro Arch, though I found you can install EmuELEC instead if needed.

On the front is a 3.5inch 320×480 IPS screen. There are four shoulder buttons, a D-pad, thumbstick and 4 face buttons. This is the closest I have seen to a perfect layout. Is there was a second thumbstick then I’d be happy.

The 2600mAh battery and small form factor makes this perfect to slide into your pocket or bag. I found the positioning of the buttons to be great for my hands and I didn’t have any difficultly playing any games. The joystick is one of my favourites, while the d-pad has a nice texture to it.

The interface is the best I have seen, with a slick slideshow effect as you scroll through each emulator. You can then view a list of roms, with album art, which can be scrapped from within the console itself with a wifi dongle attached or from the PC.

RK2020 Retro Handheld Console:

  • Pokémon Yellow – Gameboy – This plays with no issues. No frame drops in the 3 hours I played.
  • Jax and Daxter – PS1 – This played well until too many enemies were on the screen. There were multiple frame drops and performance stuttering.
  • Mario 64 – N64 Alpha – The whole game is slow and laggy, but you can see what the end product would look like.

Adding roms is a bit of a pain, and does invloce installing a couple of pieces of software, but there are a vast array of videos showing exactly what you need to do. New emulators will pop up if you add a specific game for them, which is a nice touch.

Overall, the RK2020 Retro Handheld Console is my current favourite console. The buttons and interface is a big plus for me!
