  • Game library Android Apps with Google Play and Amazon Apps, and PC Games by means of Steam (including adding non-steam games) great!
  • Graphics Tegra 4 graphics power fully capable of handling all the pixels on the screen with ease. PC Games are streamed, and are as amazing as your PC is capable of. great!
  • Battery life Keeps going. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) Considering it replaced a full-size laptop with an XBOX controller, this is perfect. great!
  • Durability Excelent build-quality. Feels hefty but light enough to hold. Does NOT feel like one of those cheap knock-off XBOX controllers. great!
Detailed review
It serves a specific purpose.

If you are looking at the Android side only, it is fully capable of handling everything you throw at it, but it can be a hassle with the physical controls.

But, if you are looking for something that would get you away from the gaming rig in your office, and enables you to play truly AAA-class PC games anywhere in the house, this is it, simple.

Sure, the PS Vita is cheaper, but while there are some "Big" games on it, but these are more like "knock-offs" of their PS3 counterparts. They don't even come close to provide the experience you are used to with their bigger brothers.
