Android gaming has just gotten another boost with the release of the JXD S7300 HD Gamepad2. This Android based portable gaming console looks like the Wii U GamePad and some gamers have even said that it is superior in many ways. Aside from running the various Android games available at Google Play you will also be able to run games from other platforms thanks to its pre-installed emulators. Some of the gaming platform titles you can get to run on this device are the PlayStation, Neo Geo, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, Famicon, Super Famicon, Sega Mega Drive, and the Capcom Play System 1 and 2.

The GamePad2 runs on stock Jelly Bean straight out of the box which is a plus already. The pricing starts at $165.99 for the 8 GB model and will goes as high as $185.99 for the 16 GB model. You can add more storage space to the device using the microSD card slot which can accept a maximum of size of 32 GB.
Playing the hundreds of thousands of games over at Google Play using this device will give you a great experience since you will be able to use the physical controls of the device. There’s an Android button mapping system onboard which converts the virtual controls to its physical counterparts.
The main kicker for this device is its ability to play games of other gaming consoles with the use of an emulator. This significantly adds more titles that you can enjoy playing. If you miss playing the classic titles from your PlayStation one, Nintendo 64 or even the Gameboy Advance then you can do so with this device although you’d have to get the specific ROM of the game first.
One final addition that we loved about this device is that it already comes with the Superuser app which makes it easy for you to root.
