So what is the SmartBoy device we keep hearing about?

The Hyperkin SmartBoy is a device which you place your mobile phone into which is very popular with the Samsung S8 models. It allows people to turn their mobile Android device into a working Gameboy. You all know the Gameboy surely, the Gameboy was a big hit handheld console early 90's which Nintendo brought out in most countries in 1989 and in Europe it was released in 1990's. It was a big hit back then and sadly discontinued in March 2003, but with Smartboy it assures us we still can play our classic retro Gameboy games.

So if you still own Gameboy games you will be glad to know you can use them with this device from Hyperkin. You can actually play Gameboy cartridges in the device which connects with your mobile. Turning your mobile phone into a handheld Console, the smart boy. This device is an awesome gadget which you do need to download an app from Google play mostly any Gameboy emulator help will work with it for example; GO GO Boy app. When you place your Android into the Smart boy it will load up and when you have the app installed and running, soon as you put in a Gameboy cartridge it will start to upload the files and let you play the game. You can play any Gameboy game and also in Color with the color games. You can also download Gameboy Roms off of the Internet and if you use a data cable you can easily transfer them on to your Android phone. So you can pretty much find all your favorite games and transfer them all over, but make sure you place these in the SmartBoy folder on your SD or internal memory on your Android.

I rate this 4 Hearts, would have been 5 but apart from the design is excellent by the way reminds me of the original Gameboy the fact that it is bulky lowers the rating. Apart from the bulkiness, this is an exceptional little gadget to own especially if you are a fan of the old retro gaming and classics. It as the same D-Pad with buttons, still as the same Nintendo design and it also does not require any batteries. The Hyperkin SmartBoy works on over 31 different android devices especially the Samsung S8 this is actually worth buying if you are a gamer and remember the days of the retro gaming with the Gameboy. At least you will not after using the touchscreen on your mobile.

This I rate the item 4/5

This item is worth the price.

Well I guess this hyperskin smart boy can be really useful to all gameboy players of old because it literally turns your mobile phone into a gameboy, it has all the controls and buttons of a gameboy and it lets you download gameboy games so that's pretty awesome for gameboy players.

This device is good for retro game players and for old gamers, having this hyperskin would let them reminiscence the good old days of hand held game consoles also I think young kids would like this very much.

This item is worth the price.

Wow, first time to hear this one. I think this is gonna be useful for all enthusiastic in games, It will also help them not to scratch their cellphone while playing games, and looks classic. The gameboy still developing their products just to become updated to the technology right now. This one is gonna be a good idea, because most of the gamer right now, preferred to use their smart phone for games.

This item is worth the price.

This is super cool - I think it's a really unique way to turn a phone into a retro gaming console. I've got an iPhone currently, so it's not something that I'll be buying anytime soon, but I'm going to send the link to my friends and family who have androids. I think quite a few of them would get a real kick out of it - or it could make a great gift idea!

This item is worth the price.

I would love to have one! I've been a user of gameboy since I was young. It was really famous back then. And now I can't wait to try it using my smartphone. I'm glad technology has allowed it resurface in this way.

I gave it 4 hearts. It si good to be back with technologies before. I love the feeling of being nostalgic. I love the feeling brought by remembering the times when everything was simple. I am sort of a gamer and even though Gameboy's games are a bit pixelated and low in graphics quality, I still love to play Pokemon, Emerald Version, Megaman and Super Mario Bros. I have heard of this before however I chose not to buy this one because I am contended with my Gameboy emulator named MyBoy.

This item is worth the price.

Didn't know about SmartBoy until now, but I really want to have one right now! Gameboy was my thing, and this is like getting one again. I'm a fan of retro stuff, so this one is not the exception. Price is very affordable, you can get one for only $30, and it's also compatible with another apps besides gaming ones. The only thing I'm not very crazy about it, is the bulky design, but based on the fact is supposed to give it that retro look, then it's good for me.

This item is worth the price.
