      What's the alternative? Overpriced indie shit?

        The only AAA I played was P5R and Civilization. Other than that I played:

        Into the Breach
        Binding of Isaac
        Hollow Knight
        Into the Breach
        Ender Lillies
        Baba is You
        And a ton of emulated games.

        If you think all of these are trash then you should look for another hobby.

      I'm playing Retroarch on the OLED and the battery seems fine to me. Although, I don't really have much to compare it to since this is my first handheld since the original Gameboy Advance. But I was playing 1080 and Star Fox 64 the other night and I was surprised by how not shit it is. Dreamcast is good too. Gunna try some Saturn later on.

      Unironically, the Steam Deck is extremely efficient at 10-15W, more so than any other chips.

        are you talking about total power or TDP? because it's got pretty big diminishing returns past ~11W TDP

        Do you turn it off by tapping the power button? Thats not turned off, thats sleep, which on PCs keeps the RAM powered.
        To turn it off, you have to hold it and select Shutdown.

    It's fine if you're playing anything but newer more demanding games. Or Okami, for some reason. I can play something like Etrian Odyssey for quite some time on one charge and not even be half way through my battery on my LCD unit.

    Got the OLED today and I'm hearing a buzzing sound on my IEMs. I've seen that this issue is quite widespread. What's the point in having 3.5mm port if it's defective. None of the reviewers I looked out pointed this out too.

      I just swapped to a pair of earphones that weren't affected by it tbh.

      There is actually a fix discovered for this
      The cause is that the daughterboard with the audio jack is grounded both via exposed ground on the board itself and its screws, creating a ground loop
      To fix it, insulate these two screws from touching the board by putting kapton tape between it and the board
      Supposedly, steam support says they are offering a mail in fix, though it is unclear what the fix is yet (I bet its the same thing)

                But we're talking about this effecting oled as a technology overall. I've never seen anyone mention a smearing problem with the switch oled, so is it just a thing with some oled panels but not other or not?

                Oleds in general are more prone to smear at low brightness and pure black image

              • 3 months ago
                Anonymous

                I see it at full brightness.
                The only cause is black pixels turning on into grey pixels. It's too slow which causes the smear effect as those pixels slowly turn on.
                Unfortunately, games quite often have dark areas.
                Screen brightness, refresh rate, etc, none of that shit matters.

            lmao dang yeah, you made me check, turning it down does makes it much more worse, but it's only distractingly bad at such a low brightness that I would never actually use during normal gameplay.
            Call me coping, but it's not enough of an issue I regret the purchase since I like the benefits of OLED over LCD. Playing Tetris Effect has been a treat.

    That's just x86 devices in general. The fact the LCDeck had the best battery life before is just a testament to how absurd these line of devices were.

    Thankfully the OLEDeck has way better battery. To the point that I don't need to charge it everyday.

          And people who use devices with IPS screens complain about glowing blacks and backlight uniformity issues. Guess everyone is fricked if they buy imperfect technology.
          The headphone jack thing on the other hand is an actual dumb design error. I'm not surprised nobody noticed it before the deck went into the wild, though. Who the frick uses 3.5mm anymore.
