Design and controls

The curved ergonomic design and excellent placement of keys and handles provide superior grip and handling experience, which is quite similar to Xbox One and PS4. JXD used Alps (Japan) joysticks that mean precise control, clear feedback and a faster response. The back-groove design allows gamers to hold the device steadily during long gaming sessions and minimizes user fatigue. The ergonomic design provides excellent control and offers the accuracy serious gamers want.

Performance and battery life

The combination of Rockchip quadcore processor, 4 GB RAM and Mali-T764 GPU provides enough power to smoothly run graphics intensive games. The 7-inch IPS display offers vivid colors and great viewing angles and makes gaming more enjoyable. The 10,000mAh battery provides enough juice for long gaming sessions and is rated to last for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Battery timing on standby is even more impressive and the tablet is rated to last for up to 30 days on a single charge in the standby mode.

Display, Audio and Software

The 7-inch FHD IPS display translates into a pixel density of 323ppi, which means sharper images, clear text and impeccable viewing angles (178-degrees). The IPS display also reduces glare, allowing gamers to use the tablet in brightly-lit environments. HDMI output allows users to connect the tablet with large displays and supports up to 4K UHD video. The built-in AAC speakers offer superior sound quality and are placed cleverly in a separate sound chamber. In addition to native Android games which are downloadable from Google Play Store, the tablet also works well with 18 emulators that allow gamers to play games of other platforms. The supported emulators include PSP, PS1, DC, N64, NAMEPlus, GBA and GBC, SFC, NDS, FC, WSC Bandai, PC Engine and MD.

Conclusion

JXD Singularity S192K offers all the power and ergonomic design serious gamers expect from a console-grade tablet, but it comes at a price. It brings enhanced gaming experience within the reach of masses and supports most game emulators, allowing gamers to enjoy their favorite games of other platforms. The bigger battery means long gaming sessions on the go, while HDMI port allows users to transfer the display to a big screen. However, Chinese manufacturers often don’t offer software updates and security patches, which leaves users vulnerable to security risks and same is the case with Singularity. If latest Android version and security patches are not something important to you, the gaming console offers all the power, features and gaming-focused design that help take mobile gaming to another level.
