More RAM, at least 1GB

Optional trigger buttons on the back.


640x480 resolution screen.


gba/psp style layout option


A Bigger screen and a quick acces to SD card


Hardware volume control, like a volume wheel


Big +1 for the easy SD card access


Ability to Screen cast to Tv, while using controller on device (leveraging Chromecast, or some other protocol)


option to use AA or AAA batteries for the power supply rather than a phone battery


#1 - Hardware acceleration of graphics
#2 - Tutorials form the creators of Gameshell, like “How to replace battery with bigger one”… vs


Horizontal layout like the GBA or PSP with shoulder buttons

  • Set the texture for the front panel to a bit more rough, it is nice but a bit too light for me
  • easier access to the battery

For GPU and screen cast, I think it is something possible for the current version, AA battery, i fear that they will not last long at all…


I would add the ability to either search in roms section, or be able to, using the right and left button, switch to the next letter in the alphabet.

  • an easy method to install more emulators
  • out-of-the-box OTG Ethernet support
  • larger battery
