My first ever complete handheld build I did in the form of the Gaboze Pocaio
This is the 2.4" original version, I went wit the basic build for this one with only 2 buttons.
Being the first build its not perfect...
Went for the teal and white colour scheme and fitted a nice original glass lens.
During modding the plastic has distorted and left a visible white mark right above the battery bay, also position of the cart is wrong... For a first effort though, I think it turned out pretty well and built the foundation for my future, more clean and improved builds.
I opted to build this by hand, down to the SMD components at the audio amp, I think for a first SMD soldering effort I did relatively good.
Also my first time soldering a ribbon cable which was extremely easy with some flux and a clean tip
I had to do lots of filing, cutting, sanding and finishing to get stuff to fit in the case... Took a long time to get to a presentable condition, overall happy with the outcome, this build was definitely a learning experience and enabled my current builds to be as good as they are now.
