Seeing this thread for the first time. Subbed. Maybe I’ll buy one of those just for the fun of it?! Can they n64 games too?

That's supposed to be announced this month no?, I hope it is.
I'm waiting for it so the RG300 drops price.
That's the RG350, this is the RG350h, which is not affiliated with the other versions.

This one is supposed to have a 1.5ghz ARM CPU by All-WInner, so it will be the most powerful of the recent cheapy handhelds.

Can they n64 games too?
Some from the past can, but most of these newer ones can only play up to Playstation.

Any cheap good handhelds with at least a 5 or 6 inch screen?
Most of these look great but I’ll go blind staring at a tiny 3-4 inch screen.

Look at the placement of that analog nub. My hand hurts just thinking about it.

Just got a Xiaomi Mi Max 2 phone:

giant 6.44" 16:9 1920x1080 screen, 2GHz (Snapdragon 525) octacore and a 5300 mAh battery (lasts forever).

Only cost me $170.

With a telescopic gamepad this turns into a really great handheld with a huge display - for only ~200 bucks.

I love my GPD XD, but I haven’t updated it for awhile. I will probably need to look into the updating process (which seems more complicated than I want it to be) if I want to stream my Xbox next month.

What's your budget? I have a GPD Win 2 which has a 6 inch IPS screen and is about the size of a 3DS XL (i.e. it literally fits into 3DS XL cases). It's very good, plays tons of PC games and emulators very well, but it's not cheap. There's also the GPD XD Plus which is Android based and I think has a 5+ inch screen, but I've never owned one.

It will be good with Doom, Quake and some Playstation games, but that's about it.

It might be a design they stick with for a while though,, and eventually it will become more useful.

I think I'd be more interested in these if they went further than N64. Now Gamecube games on a handheld and I'll be sold.
I've kinda done the 16bit generation to death and same with the PS1/N64

The N+ Digi Dock is arguably one of the most unique devices that I've seen in a very long time. The design philosophy of creating a handheld with good components that can essentially be upgraded by a user for years to come is a huge departure from the current life cycle of many handhelds in this space. I got my hands on an N+ Digi Dock a few months ago and I've been meaning to do a proper overview of the unit. In the same way that I did with the Z Pocket Game, this showcase also features an exclusive interview with the developer of this device, Wang Fu.

Wait wait wait. Dreamcast emulation? You mean I can play Skies of Arcadia on a handheld?

I don't think so. Just Aliexpress and some of the other Chinese stores for now.
Take a look:
