Doesn't look very comfortable to hold. Stick and buttons right at the top. Surely it'll feel like you're just gripping the top of it.

Clearly never seen a steam deck then?

__SteakDeck__104d ago

@stoney101 It’s obvious you’ve never held a Steam Deck. Lol Even though it’s a little heavy, it’s the most comfortable handheld I’ve ever held. There are others who also agree with my sentiment.

This looks a fair bit bigger than a steam deck.

I mean, I love many things about the Steam Deck, but it's a pretty big stretch to act like it's comfortable to hold compared to older, smaller handhelds with a similar form factor like GBA, PSP, Vita, or even Switch Lite. It's a pretty chunky device.

Yeah steam deck is comfortable for some, but for me it gives me huge strain in my fingers. Its not really suitable for small hands. I have to choose between using the analogue sticks or the triggers since I cant reach both at the same time. Very very annoying. I only use it for none shooters now.

@_SteakDeck_ I think stoney knows what a Steam Deck is. andy85 is the one who doesn't understand how to hold these things.

@neon I own a Rog Ally and even that makes the hands ache because of the position of everything after a while. This is even larger.


I’ll pass. I have a Deck and an Ally that’s enough for me. Ally does EXACTLY what I need it to do.


ASUS ROG Ally Handheld Console PC Review

The ASUS ROG Ally can run games beautifully when it works correctly, however, poor battery life and a need for constant tinkering take it out of the running for average users.

I’ve never enjoyed handheld gaming until I got this. Even my Steam Deck takes a backseat to the Ally. I keep it right next to my bed plugged in on Turbo mode. It does require some Windows know how but once past that small hurdle it’s smooth sailing.

I liked it a lot when I reviewed it. The only issue is for people that are not tech-savvy, it could be a bit tedious, and the battery life really let me down. I love the unit all said though.
