Additionally, you can also download remote play apps from Google Play Store, or stream videos, etc.
The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld comes with precision gaming controls featuring haptics, gyroscope, which can also be remapped. It will allow you to experience games on a large 7-inch full 1080p HD touchscreen, with 60Hz refresh rate and a full-screen aspect ratio of 16:9.
