As the topic states. I am using emulation (NES, SNES, GENESIS & GBA) on my phone.

But are there any stats on wich emulator that are best for each system, performance wise?

Is Nesoid, Snesoid, Genoid and Gameboid the best out there, or are there other contenders of the champion title?

Get all the -oid emulators off the slideme marketplace. Nesoid, snesoid, gameboid, gensoid, etc. They're free.

Do you know anything about input lag? All SNES emulators for Android have always had a bad input lag up to 1/2 of a second.

Really? I've not had input lag on Kirby's Dream Land 3 on snesoid. The game itself is laggy when not overclocked, but the input itself is snappy

I've played through all 3 Donkey Kong Country's on Snesoid and didn't notice any lag

Thanks for the input!

Just wanna say something about lagging (not input lag, but ordinary lag).

Its very much about what you have installed, and what processes being run in the background. I have used Titanium Backup to wipe a lot of bloatware, and when Im gaming, I use Astro to kill off all the unnecessary apps being run in the background.

I always run Task-Killer in Astro prior to gaming, the experience is much better.

I don't use task killer anymore because Android load the apps back to the ram as soon as you kill them. The only way is to disable (ICS feature) or freeze them, or as you said, delete.

neo.emu alone makes this phone worth its full price.

Mupen64plus is a pretty good n64 emulator and the psx emulator on the xperia play is pretty good. Or use fpse orwhatever it's called instead
