Unboxing the Ayaneo Air 1S with a full test and review of the gaming chops, to see if this is the best thin and light portable handheld console of 2023. The Aya Neo Air 1s is incredibly small vs the Steam Deck and Asus ROG Ally, yet boasts beefy AMD Ryzen 7 performance and gorgeous OLED visuals. There’s even an Ultra Thin model if you want it even lighter!
Those gaming specs are pretty good considering the Switch OLED size, with an AMD Ryzen 7840U in charge plus 32GB RAM. The Ayaneo Air 1s also sports a Full HD AMOLED display, which is crisp and boasts sharp contrast. It’s smaller vs the Steam Deck but also poppier and more detailed too.
Plus, the Aya Space 2 UI is finally much improved! The Aya Neo Air 1s is much easier to configure, and simpler to get to grips with. At any time when gaming you can customise the performance, display and other bits, to suit whatever game you’re playing.
The Ayaneo Air 1s is certainly one of the best handheld consoles from these guys that I’ve tested, so here’s hoping we get some more top devices before 2023 is done. Check out my reviews of other portable gaming consoles including the 2s, Asus ROG Ally and Steam Deck!
