I’ve been a proud owner of a GPH Wiz for over a year now, and been able to test it in every way possible.
When I bought it the Dingoo A320 was just beginning to become available, and I wondered if it would be better than the Wiz. Well I couldn’t hear all those “the Dingoo kicks the Wiz’s ass” trash talk anymore, and decided to get a Dingoo for myself.
So far I’ve been quite impressed with the Dingoo, although there are a few showstoppers that make the Wiz my preferred Open-Source Handheld.
Here’s my final comparison report :
|Look’n Feel *1|
*1 Look’n feel:
The Dingoo has uniformly designed Emulators, they all have the same Button-shortcuts to enter / exit menus etc..
I found that some games (i.e Super Punch Out) are not working with native Dingoo-Emulators, which is a no-go for me. Check out a complete liste at http://a320.bluwiki.com/go/Non-Working_Games Solution to this problem is to install Dingux, a Linux OS which runs it’s own Emulators. But in Dingux, every Emulator has it’s own Button-Shortcuts, which isn’t as user-friendly as with the native Dingoo-Emulators.
This has been fixed by Lion_Rsm, with his awesome Dingoo Emulation pack
*3 Emulation :
Some games (mainly MAME stuff) runs definitely better on the Wiz. Don’t know if it’s Software related , but there is a difference. Also, GameBoy (Color) Emulation looks definitely better on the Wiz.
Although the Dingoo scores better on that fact sheet, i still prefer the Wiz. It has a better Display, and the overall Emulation performance is a bit better than on the Dingoo.
It’s the compatibility issue which makes me stick to my Wiz.
