4 major disadvantages of the number of Internet users
Although Project Q has not yet been officially launched, netizens have begun to count its shortcomings. First, there is the issue of battery life. According to previous leaks, the battery life of Project Q is only 4 hours. In addition, some netizens think that the design of the mobile phone that needs to be connected to the Internet for a long time is unreasonable. Some netizens also criticize that it requires PS5 to use, bundled sales methods, and its functions are not as good as other portable game consoles such as Steam Deck or ROG ALLY.

After all, it is very attractive to play on the bed or sofa. It’s just that the peripheral hardware of PS5 is expensive. For example, the “Pro Switch” Dual Sense Edge costs close to HK$1,600. It is estimated that Project Q may be close to HK$3,000 or even more expensive.
