Video Review Console / Tablet JXDs601
Thanks to the store willgoo.com sent me a sample of the * console JXDs601 of which is talking a lot lately in related forums retro consoles and Android in general. whereas now there are several similar alternatives (consoles android) try to make this review as objective and focused as possible, and if I use some reference to another console is only to graph or get an idea of some particular point. In no way do I want you to understand this review as a comparison between consoles. for that, possibly generating other inputs where talking about it. That said, I invite everyone to continue reading this review that, as in every previous attempt to make it in the most clear and direct as possible for anyone interested in this product. Unboxing and first impressions
The console comes packaged in a cardboard box, printed on nearly all sides by images and texts appropriate to their content.
Opening the box we find the interior divided into 2 compartments, and all properly packaged, which I was pleasantly surprised since we are not used to seeing great care in packaging of such products.
- Wall Charger with standard jack (EUR), Mini-USB connector (5V 500mAh)
- About sealed with headphones / earphones-the-Ear
- USB-miniUSB cable (to connect the console to the computer)
- Console (properly wrapped in a protective envelope, and turn into a bubble bag)
- Brochure mini-guía/descripción console. The Folic includes a list of all installed applications on the console. This point is especially grateful for those who have touched your life in an android device as briefly explains what each option / console app. Physical description of the console.
- Audio out (headphones / earphones)
- TV out (mini-jack connector 3.55mm)
- Vol -
- Vol +
- Triggers L & R (Left and Right)
- MicroSD slot
- Power Button
- Switch to lock buttons (Lock)
- D-PAD (Directional digital Phillips)
- Stick (Joystick)
- 4 action buttons (containing the same symbols as buttons on a Playstation controller / PSP: Triangle, Circle, Square, X)
- Start After carefully inspecting the console, you get to the coclusión that does not have a "Home" button
The texts of the box are all in English, which feature the following:
(Example video recording, using the camera built into the console.)
Performance Testing / Benchmarking
Test result: 1694. Above the Samsung Nexus S, and below the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.Acerca the result, as can pareciar, performance in all sections has been fairly even, with the 2D test the worst has been given to the hardware, getting only 990 points in 3D counterpart, thanks to the Mali-400 chip, get 1438 points. Launcher preinstalled (Game HUB 1.05)
When you first turn this console, we have a launcher adapted to it. This is the "GAME HUB 1.05", a launcher that is configured with the software preloaded on the console, and then allowing you to choose emulator and the ROM in a graphical way to be a part lanzar.Por quite comfortable, especially for new user in the Android world, since we should not have much knowledge of this environment in order to select and implement any corresponding ROM emulator, and directory structures lost in the attempt to find the needed files (ROMs) to run a juego.Por other hand, this launcher can be quite annoying for anyone used to manage in Android, since some functions and shortcuts layer important for this system.For example, access to the Android settings are not in launcher home screen, which typically would be in "screen-> menu button-> Settings". In this case, the configuration is in the * icon * "Settings" menu "All Apps" on the main screen.
may , a more veteran user will choose to install Android launcher any more "standard" for a more natural use of the device. For these tests, I chose to install the "Go Launcher", which works fine with the resolution of this console. Rooteo and installation of the Market The default console is not installed with the Market, so it must be manualmente.Antes install this, you have to make the process of rooteo the device, and for this I followed * this guide (it's in Russian), but with some modifications. Then give the steps for how Root: Downloads: - * UnLook Root - Enable Debug mode (Settings-> Applications-> Development-> USB Debugging) - * Install Root UnLook - Connect the console to the computer. Wait for the appropriate drivers installed. Note : If at the end of the process still appears "unknown USB device" off the console, wait about 5 seconds and reconnecting. (Alternatively, you can run "Install drivers" in the installed program folder in the Windows Start menu) - With the program open and the drivers installed correctly, click on the big green button "Root" - A window with android devices connected. select for the tablet. - Wait until the process ends. Upon completion, the program will ask if you want to install some applications. In my case, I installed the battery saving. (These programs are optional) Then according to the guide there is a software program to clean up the console. I have run this script directly, but later I realized that I have eliminated the gamehub.apk, and I wanted to analyze, so I reinstalled the whole system again, hoping to regain everything as it comes factory, but I lost the GAME settings HUB

Android gaming test
In general, android games run with hardly any slow-down in specific areas, but not involving at all a bad user experience. Emulators Test arrived at what should be the main objective to acquire this console, and is the world of emulation of retro-consolas.En this point, we will establish a "range" of emulation, considering the 8-bit consoles emulation base, and reaching the most current consoles and have an emulator. To be blunt, this console can emulate almost any system well below Nintendo 64 (N64) and Playstation One (PSX), or whatever it is, any 16-bit system will have no problem on this console to be emulated .. Thus, according to tests The following emulators run almost perfectly: - Gameboy Color - Gameboy Advance - Nintendo NES System Entretainment (Nesoid) - Super NES (SNesoid) - Mame (MAME4oid) - Mame (Arcade Tiger)
(Video where you can see various emulators of 8 and 16 bit running on the console.)
Note on MAme4Droid Reloaded (MAME)
Stick B ->  (Button_Y)
This setup will leave buttons assigned as follows:
 -> Low Punch
Nintendo 64 (N64oid)
(Video where you can see the console emulating PSX and N64)
TV Out (TV output)
[Media] <object width="560" height="315"> <
(Video demo, running the game GTAIII with the output to a TV)
The downside of this option is that the screen is still receiving touch events, which are reflected in the connected display, but the console turns off your display, making use of the screen should be done blindly, ie , click on the console screen (which is off) and see their interaction on the big screen, makes reference is lost on that part of the screen are pressing, and of course games that require some precision (vs. plants zombies, for example), can be frustrating trying to play them. However, to games / emulators that go well with the buttons, the resulting experience is very satisfactory, because the console command fucniona well as connected to the TV, so you can enjoy retro-consoles emulated without problems. Update Firmware As I write this review, has released a new update / firmware of the console that brings new improvements in his performance / stability, and the expected TV Out (output to TV ) download from the official website Mirror Pros, cons and possible improvements to the console After performing the above tests, we can list a number of pros and cons of the console, which I think are interesting when considering the acquisition of this product. PROS - * Compact size . As a replica of the PSP Slim (with a few millimeters larger), it is very comfortable to carry in any pocket. - * Touch screen quality . Despite being a resistive screen responds well enough to not require the use of a pointer in it (you can use your finger directly) - * Recharge battery with the same USB port data . This detail is very interesting, since it is not necessary to go with a console exclusive charger to recharge. Simply connect a USB cable to any available port on a PC, and can charge the console. - * Battery . As you can read user comments, the battery can last more than 4 hours with a relatively intensive use of the console (3D games, WIFI). with a more normal use (surfing the Internet, watching movies with a resolution similar to the PSP for not requiring both the processor), can reach 5 hours without problems. - * TV composite video output . For some it will be a step ago, but under the circumstances, this can be much more practical than it sounds, since there are still many devices / TVs / monitors where this type of entry is still a standard, and therefore can connect the console without problems. Plus it's much easier and cheaper to have a composite video cable + audio (typical A / V cable that is 3 on 3 RCA connectors) and a minijack adapter 3 outputs (Video, Audio Left and Audio Right .) - * Manufacturer interested in feedback from users . It has been the case the console manufacturer wanted to know the opinion of some users to know that things can improve in future firmwares. Although this is no guarantee of anything, the act of showing interest is a vote for the manufacturer, in favor of the incorporation of improvements (via software) in later firmware revisions. CONS - * Processor gelding well below its posibiliad by defect . Currently, the processor is castrated at 60% of its actual capacity (normal, without overclocking), presumably to save on batería.Cierto is that some users have contacted the manufacturer to see the feasibility of a little speed up processor in a next firmware revision. - * No HOME button (or in this case, the "Home" button is not active). The Android OS becomes impractical in the absence of this tecla.Actualmente there is a solution to assign the key to another key physical home console. - * trigger buttons too hard . With the use may end up softening, or directly to waste. - * D-PAD "exploded" . The feel of the D-PAD is not very good as gaming experience. - * D-pad and analog with the same functions . You could assign different keys to these controls, and 2 in order to have different sets of keys to allocate console emulators. IMPROVEMENTS - Consider a hypothetical revision of the console, a good way to update the console is adding more power to the processor with the addition of a program to manage serial console speed, and you may choose between saving energy (limiting the speed of the processor) or performance (speed up) - Another point to consider is a redesign of buttons, especially the trigger, and the plastic piece used in the D-PAD, which is not divided. - Addition of a key HOME-Upgrading to ICS? Information Website: http://www.jxd.hk based Review : http://manguiro.blogspot.com/2012/03...t-jxds601.html Summary After being tested the console for a couple of weeks, I must admit that my initial impression is much improved, especially with the last firmware update and its output TV Out, and the interest that is showing the console manufacturer as to what users say, and who knows maybe take some firmware with increased processor speed (castrate less) and with this win enough to run more smoothly Nintendo 64 and Playstation One For now, the section of the screen I was pleasantly surprised. Being resistive, responds quite well, even using the fingertips, and do not need a pointer to push the pantalla.Por the contrary, the triggers are too hard and are annoying to use. possibly be completed by using smoothing. The overall price of the console I think it is quite reasonable and low, and therefore can result in a purchase affordable for many potential users. While you can find better alternatives in terms of processor / screen / gpu, also imply a higher cost than they can even be twice what it costs to this console. Conclusion This product is not the best of its type or much less, but after giving it some use quite more interesting than it first appears. The truth is that if a user already has some kind of emulation of retro consoles, a PSP with custom firmware, this device may not be of interest, as ultimately pursued more or less the same. However, for those who want to capitalize on an Android device, in addition to a retro-portable console is a good option to considerar.También turns out to be a good choice for new users who want to enter the world android, but not want to spend a lot of money on a device with this system operativo.O above in a word, if you do not require a great deal and do not have economic alternatives like, catches this console, it sure gives you good times retro -emulation. final note I think for all those users who like to have equipment "for tinkering" should have a console like this, but is the one discussed in this review, if you can be one of the alternatives, as these devices give much play, not only in paragraph playful, but also in the technical "Crockery", being devices that lend themselves to that users can get their hands and tinker in the guts of your OS Acknowledgments I thank again willgoo.com store for the sample sent for analysis and review, users also http://www.elotrolado.net and http://www.gp32spain.com (especially Skelton, forero of both sites) for their interest in the console, comments and contributions made which have improved the content of this review.
