I'm not familiar with "My Arcade," but this has my interest. A portable NES that uses actual NES and Famicom carts.

I did like a few of their official licensed mini arcades, but most of their stuff is a bit kitschy. This only has buttons as a dpad to copy switch, not for any practical reason like being able to use one side of a controller as a separate controller. Reminds me of that thing that resembles a Game and Watch handheld (made by Lexibook, not My Arcade).

If you know what normal "My Arcade" d-pads are like, the split button setup is a godsend.
The dpad on those mini arcade things actually works better with the joystick on, which makes no sense at all. It's too mushy when used as a dpad. It's actually not the worst dpad I have used and the games still play well (especially the ones with left and right movement like Mappy, Galaga, and Galaxian), but it could have been better. Not sure about their other devices, but I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't great.

I'm actually thinking I'd buy this.
I've got a FC Mobile 88 and it's fantastic, but flawed. It hates a few of the less used upper Famicom mappers, and the TV out is a subpar mono cable to rca mono split which blows, and the batteries probably last 10-20 hours on the ones in there which is fine. I like it it works, but it's FC only. This though with the nice wide panel, and using BOTH carts and with that battery life, if it matches the 88 or passes it in compatibility I'm all for it.
That render is annoying, B and A are swapped, best not be for playing or they can choke. >:\ I've seen plenty of those more keychain sized or pocket players from China that seemingly all love to put those backwards making enough games unplayable.
