We’ll take a better have a look at the system and provides a quick overview with some private ideas. Full disclosure that I’m not a PC gamer (normally a Ps type of particular person), so I’m not aware about all the small print that make this gaming handheld nice, however I’ll attempt to put it when it comes to what I feel as a common gamer.


The packaging appears very modern with the black field and glimmers of inexperienced on the surface. On the within we get an even bigger pop of that inexperienced with the AOKZOE comfortable in its foam mildew. Behind the AOKZOE we see the directions included in a pleasant envelope and the PD Quick Charger boxed in an analogous type.

Going into the system a bit extra, we do see that there are a number of options that permit for flexibility together with your PC wants and gameplay. Whereas it has all of the buttons and triggers of any console controller, the AOKZOE additionally consists of highly effective entrance going through audio system, a slot to your SD card, a USB port, and a headphone jack.

The unit is kind of giant. In comparison with a Nintendo Swap, it’s wider, heavier, and thicker. Nonetheless, after the preliminary setup and testing some options, I instantly discovered myself extra comfy with the grip and measurement than with the Swap. 


The setup had some bumps, particularly since a number of the steps appeared pointless. As soon as I handled it extra as simply the setup for a PC, the method felt a lot simpler. After the preliminary setup, you’re free to customise how you would like, with completely different themes and lock display choices. Because the AOKZOE has a touchscreen a number of it was easy clicks right here and there.

The hiccups got here largely from the touchscreen keyboard. There are two accessible choices, with the primary keyboard being introduced up by tapping a small icon on the taskbar that may change themes and likewise consists of swipe capabilities. The opposite might be introduced up with a button on the underside proper hand nook proper over the “Turbo” button. This one is a little more handbook and is probably going meant extra for gaming chat. It took a while to get used to them and notice there have been two, particularly with the desktop keyboard not all the time working. A straightforward reboot all the time fastened this although. The touchscreen had no points, however I feel I’d counsel utilizing a stylus to make issues simpler. 


The graphics are undoubtedly superb after attempting a number of completely different video games. I went via some completely different genres together with some Fall Guys to Future to get a way of various gameplay. The readability is actually crisp, however some modifications could must be made to ensure that sure video games to play easily in the event that they require extra to run. I needed to make a number of tweaks for extra FPS video games to maintain up, however fortunately there’s a number of management over these capabilities.

After all of the setup, I used to be capable of start putting in gaming platforms and video games together with Steam and Epic. Epic was a bit more durable to make use of and get to the show I wished, nonetheless Steam labored extremely properly since they’ve their Steam Deck UI. 


Total, the video games ran properly till my handheld died out. The PD Charger actually replenishes the battery faster, however I don’t consider it’s adequate to run the AOKZOE and cost on the identical time. I’m fairly excited to maintain enjoying with it and it’s a possibility for me to strive sure video games that solely run on Microsoft. I’ll undoubtedly think about getting extra demanding video games to try it out extra.
