Mitashi GameIn ThunderBolt

Mitashi GameIn ThunderBolt

Mitashi have for a while now been coming out with, fairly low priced, handheld gaming devices like- Smarty, Chotu and Touch Series. And only last year came out with an Android (2.3) version in the form of portable devices which are now available in a different hardware and Android 4.0.4 (ICS) system update.

Their most recent device in this category is the Mitashi GameIn Thunderbolt, which is the successor of the Mitashi GameIn Thunder. The thing Mitashi brags a lot about this product is the fact that this deice gives you Android openness. But is that really enough to get a gamer to buy this device, let’s find out.

Mitashi still isn’t a company that gives serious competition to companies like Sony and all. There is a very simple explanation to this: quality. This is a major turn off and isn’t something that a company can earn overnight.

First Look:

And to top that, the sticky buttons and plasticky looks don’t exactly help in earning that rep either. From the outset, we can almost see a plastic coating on the device which shows very blatantly that its something cheap. The buttons and the feedback are just about alright too, nothing compared to the Sony PSP. However the device itself is quite sturdy and does look like it can handle a few falls.


The screen itself is decently large at 4.3 inches with a 5-point multi-touch capacitive input. The response is just about okay, you could say it does the bare minimum required. It has a screen resolution of 480 X 272 pixels and screen density of 160 dpi. A better screen is expected for a device at this price, cause a slight tilt in the screen leads to extreme color changes and can be quite irritating while playing.


The sticky buttons and late touchscreen response are factors that certainly prove to be essential in this aspect. This device is loaded with tons of games, oh and did we mention these were games that your grandfather probably played Games of the 80’s/90’s 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit are the ones that are offered in this device. There are pre-loaded versions of Android games on this device without access to Google Play Store.


– Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

– 4.3″ screen with 5-point multi-touch capacitive input and pixel dimensions of 480×272.

– 1 GHz single-core Amlogic CPU, Mali-400MP GPU.

– 512 MB RAM, 4 GB internal storage, Up to 32 GB microSD support.

– 2 megapixel rear camera, 0.3 megapixel front camera.

– Wi-Fi, 3.5 mm audio jack.

– Warranty: 6 Months

Our Verdict:

We don’t see this product flourishing in the market, especially when its priced so close to a PSP. It maybe a good gift to give a nephew of yours or something. This is only fit for a toddler who may play with it for a few days and play with other stuff.

We also think that they could have done away with the camera and used that money to better other features, like maybe the screen or the touchscreen response, or even the buttons.

All in all a very average gaming device, with nothing too fancy or extraordinary. Although cheap, it really isn’t the best device for even a rookie gamer.


P.S. The actual unboxing video is coming out soon…we promise!
