There are handheld Android-based consoles available (similar to my MK808 in power but with built-in joypad, screen and speakers) available from the usual places.  Probably pre-rooted too as they're all sold by the usual Chinese drop-shipping companies.

The only caveat is watch out for the cheaper ones with the resistive screens as you'll have no end of problems trying games that use the pinch manoeuvre.

I purchased one of these 'early on' and they truly are fekking terrible. The worst thing is the audio - so bad it is easier to turn the sound off. :(

Suppose they are worth £20 though. ;)

Compared to the MK808 at RCM, they're much, much worse?  (if you forgive the audio problems)?

Am I better off leaving emulators on my Note 3 then?

Honestly the emulation is pretty good . . . sound is horrendous.
