Android gaming may get a truly mobile experience with the JXD S5800

Mobile gaming is certainly fun, but can be limiting. The lack of hardware controls is sometimes frustrating, as games like Grand Theft Auto are much better with dedicated controls.

Consoles like Ouya or Gamestick are fun, but tie us to the living room. NVIDIA's Shield is great, but a touch bulky, and best used as a secondary device.
