Is there a decent DS emulator for android yet? or are they all still garbage?

Drastic is expensive but works pretty much flawlessly. it's one of the best emulators I've ever used and I think it's better than playing on an actual DS.

You should elaborate. The DS is fairly close to perfect for playing DS games.

The app probably has image filters to enhance the video.

That's the last thing on my mind when playing a handheld game. Comfort and control are the most important. To each their own I guess.

I prefer comfort and control as well. I don't see how making the whole screen a touch screen while including all the buttons on there is in any way convenient. I despise any app that uses a virtual gamepad on a small screen. Make it HD for all I care, it's not worth getting used to.

The GBA emulators are probably as far as I go because there isn't as many buttons everywhere, and even then I don't play them often.

What do you mean? The Portable Computer board was made for Android devices!
