    wait about 4 or 6 years and you'll have a device that could play any game between 2006 to 2014 and low spec games from 2015 to 2020. Hell, I'd buy it as a pocket pc just to take it to a friends place or while on vacation just to play rocket league or unreal tournament, all you'd need is this, an hdmi, an xbox controller reciever or usb hub and some xbox controllers.

    Running Windows 10 Home on the internal disk and Ubuntu Mate 18.10 on a SanDisk Ultra 400GB card. It's an intriguing little device, but it has some annoying quirks. Windows occasionally goes to sleep while I am using it. Didn't have much luck with my USB3 Ethernet adapter. Hopefully those quirks will be corrected and more OSs will support it. I just needed a small full Windows laptop to watch movies on and do light work when I travel. The GPD Pocket 2 has a chance to meet those needs. Great review. Tx!

    Whats the point of these at this day and age? Why would you need more power than the best tabs/ phones of that size provide?
    Do you need a device that small so you can run windows? Why?

    • Armando Zapata
      Armando Zapata 2 months ago

      Windows runs on the x86 architecture, which is a whole lot more powerful than anything Snapdragons can bring to the table still... For power users, this is a must in order to run high end software, do video editing, and some more stuff.
      Granted, you CAN browse internet and TheXvid content mostly on your phone. However, a Windows or Mac PC let's you do the things these mobile OS won't allow for. There is a lot more software available for Windows and Mac than on Android and iOS.
      The trade-off for x86 though, is high power consumption.
      So you can pick either having:
      A. a high efficiency, lower performance device which still let's you do 90% of stuff adequately, at the expense of top end performance
      B. A high performance, low efficiency device for power tasks, which can go as far as emulating a phone OS though raw horsepower, and basically give no restrictions on software compatibility. Your battery life suffers tremendously though.
      It's basically the same argument of getting a sedan/hatchback against a pickup truck, or SUV. Likewise, getting a low end flip phone vs a cutting edge flagship monster; both perform similar functions for different people and needs. Some can go for a flip phone and love the simplicity, while others love the touchscreen and options new phones provide (despite being beyond and above their initial purpose). And others will swear by Pick-up trucks, while others will say it's a colossal waste of gas and money, and will prefer a sedan.
      This argument of why go for this, basically is the same as why to go for a regular laptop over a phone in a nutshell. :)
      PS: I own the Pocket 2, and also have a good smartphone. They both serve me differenty, but compliment each other fantastically.

    • Armando Zapata
      Armando Zapata 3 months ago

      I can run a steam game (Bad Company 2, or NFS Hot Pursuit) for about 2 hours on it without issues. You can also unlock the base TDP from 4.5 to higher, and sacrifice battery life for even more performance
