A flawed gem, the A320 offers a tantalising glimpse into the moment that Chinese consoles began to grow up.
Whilst the Dingoo keeps one paw dipped in China's murky past of copyright melting rip-offs, it packs an intriguing level of features into a reasonably priced pocket-sized console.
The Dingoo is not for casual gamers though – mainstream consoles never launch with the quirks that blight the A320.
In a routine session with the console it is common to see a user lurch from love to undying hatred and back in a single breath.
That said, the Dingoo impresses on many levels and the comments of enthusiast developers point to a very exciting future, thousands of miles away from its homeland.
