JXD S5110 Handheld Game Console: The Unholy Marriage of a PSP and Android

by Paul Strauss

While I’m personally holding out for the Archos GamePad, if you absolutely must have an Android 4 gaming device before the holidays, you might want to check 0ut this oddity. The Chinese made JXD 5110 bears more than a passing resemblance to the Sony PSP, but it’s all Android, all the time.


This handheld gaming system runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and supports 95% of all Android apps out of the box. It’s also got a (single) analog thumbstick, D-Pad, ABXY, Start/Select and shoulder buttons. Games are played on its 800×480 resolution, 5-inch touchscreen, and it’s also got a low-res (0.3 MP) rear camera built in. It’s powered by a an ARM Cortex A9 CPU, and has an ARM Mali400 GPU. It’s got 4GB of on-board storage, and can be expanded via a MicroSD card up with as much as 32GB of storage. Its built-in Wi-Fi supports 802.11g/b/n standards.  It’s also got an HDMI output so you can connect it to your TV.


Of course, the main reason to buy a handheld like this is to play emulators of older gaming systems, and the S5110 can play classic games using any of the numerous Android-based emulators out there. It even comes pre-loaded with several emulators to get you started. While it’s definitely an odd-looking system, it’s available now, and costs under $100(USD) too. You can grab one over on Amazon in either Black or White.

    The s5110 is outdated. Go for the s5300, it comes rooted, and if you can wait, the s5600b (dual core 5in) and s7300 (same specs as the archos gamepad but much better looking all around, with properly placed L2/R2 buttons) are coming out shortly… Also the archos gamepad has a gameplay battery life of 2 hours. That is horrible, for $200 you can do muuuch muuuuch better all around. Check out willgoo.com, or the forums at dingoonity.org

      Ah, we mentioned the S7100 (now the S7300) last year, but at the time it ran Android 2.2. I’ll definitely check them out as I’m looking for a replacement for my old Dingoo A380

    Good to know, but I definitely want the dual analog sticks and a 7-inch screen. Looks like the s7300 is the one to watch for.

    Yup, grab the s7300b, the folks over at jxd on alibaba say it should be ready for purchase by the end of the month, unfortunately a little too late for the holidays, but worth waiting for certainly!
