Next, there are a few key areas from that initial preview that id like to update my opinion on and package up this video, as my final review of the ineo next ultimately id like to ask the question: should you buy an ino next first id like to Address my comments on the d pad and buttons with regard to the d pad the overall feel of the d pad is still not something i particularly like, but in practice its a solid d pad and i never experienced any erroneous input. The one part i do like about the ineo nxd pad is the overall snap when pressing in any given direction. This snappiness on input is similar to the face buttons themselves, which are genuinely excellent. The one main point id like to address here is that the d pad is quite unique and, while i wouldnt say its my favorite d pad, if i had to assign a grade to it id say its a 7 out of 10 and the only reason for The point seduction is its uniqueness, not gelling with me rounding out the inputs id like to take a brief moment here and talk about the triggers when i first had the device the triggers themselves. Have this grand smooth motion to them? They have a crazy amount of travel and a consistent tension. If i had to say one negative thing about the analog triggers its that they are almost a little too perfectly suited for racing or flying games.

What i find myself doing in other genres is partially pressing. The input which feels a bit odd truth be told pivoting over to other inputs. It needs to be said immediately that the analog sticks are my absolute favorite part of the ineo next, the fundamental design, how tall the sticks are, how they travel the consistency of the travel it lines up with everything i look for. The only sore point is that i am of the opinion that the analogues themselves could use a firmware update. The ispace app is helpful in how it instructs you to try and recalibrate the analogs in real time, but even when doing so, there is still a small area of the analogs that dont internally offer the full travel fundamentally the ineo next overall design is well done With fantastic ergonomics for its size, i dont think firmware wise for the gamepad. Anything needs to be improved outside of the small analog issue and it is possible to re tune this with other software to modify dead zones and travel. Before i talk about what to expect gaming wise id first like to talk about the ispace app, when i first got this app and tried it weeks ago, there was a considerable amount that just wasnt functioning properly um. Please report that its actually fixed a lot of issues i had with it initially, and there is a lot of genius behind its design. Not only does it help with finding updates for your device, it helps walk you through some issues you might be having on top of that, the buttons have been condensed down and can be tuned to do whatever you like, provided the isps app is running at this Point its a nice time for me to segue into the gaming functions.

There is a way to use fsr quickly from the isbase quick menu, which is one of the best ways to maximize the potential of the ineo. Next now, while the ineo next doesnt have the gpu horsepower of the new steam deck coming, what it does have is the cpu to hit high frame rates so most of the time when running aaa games, the most advisable course of action is instead to pivot the Workload to be a cpu problem, so how do we do that? Well, you run games in windowed mode and select a lower resolution with fsr. We can upscale improve the image quality. The end result is good enough image quality with exceptional frame rate. The last part we need to talk about is obviously that the zen 3 cpus will undoubtedly perform better in specific high end emulation applications to come back to my original question is the ineo next worth buying when we position the inex compared to the steam deck? There are only a few areas: the ino next has an advantage. First, the zen 3 cpus are really quite good and having eight core and 16 threads using the iono nx, as your main computer becomes a more viable option. Naturally, id only say this is worthwhile when the machine is docked, but its still clearly an advantage. The other advantage for the ino next is that its available in more regions than the steam deck is so for some people, the steam deck just doesnt, have any availability.

Last, the ineo next is also still a bit smaller than the steam deck is for some people. This is a big enough difference to matter. The price is largely what is going to come up as the main difference most people see and when we compare on that metric and when we compare it from that metric im in agreement, the steam deck is easily the better value thats. Where the end of my review is going to stay, there are qualities of the ionian x that offer compelling reasons why someone would want it with gaming concern. The cpus are its best asset and youll need to orient games. You play to be cpu bound to make the most of them on the system. Ultimately, youll have to make the determination. If these advantages, the ineo next has are worth the increased cost over the steam deck. If you were to ask me, since i happen to be in a position to get a steam deck, would i get the 650 512 gigabyte version of the steam deck, which is most comparable to the ineo next, which has a one terabyte ssd but starts at fourteen Hundred while the controls in the ion x are quite good, they arent on a whole other level better than the steam deck. This is why the answer would be that i would still get the steam deck, but the steam deck is available in my region, and the design of these systems are both oriented towards gaming exclusively.

If the ineo nx was a hybrid design, i could see myself making another decision again. Ultimately, youll have to make the determination what youre looking for to get out of these systems im going to leave it out here. As this is the end of my review, there will be some game demos after this. If you care to see as always guys. Thank you for your time and thanks for watching Music Music, oh uh, Music keep going Applause, okay, theres, no other way around.
