Getting a controller right tends to be a pretty difficult job, especially when it comes to the low end price point. This device looks great, but the question is does it perform?
Well, I’m happy to say that it works pretty well, especially considering the price. It feels comfortable in the hand, and for anyone who has used an Xbox controller, you’ll feel right at home with this.
Pairing up with my Android was a breeze, and playing games worked great. There was very little set up required, and the controller was working pretty much straight out of the box.
The phone grip is adjustable, and seems to have a pretty flexible range. When it comes to phones I can’t see there being many devices on the market that won’t fit this, including the larger phablets. The grip also feels sturdy, with two rubber pads to hold the phone in place, ensuring it won’t slip out during gaming sessions.
The controller is charged via Micro USB, a cable is kindly supplied with the device. This is pretty handy considering it means you won’t need to carry around multiple cables.
So you might be wondering why the controller lost a star. Well, it feels extremely light weight and the build quality isn’t quite where I’d like it to be. For the most part all the buttons worked well, but the right trigger felt a little loose, pressing in far too easily, especially compared to the left.
Apart from those small niggles regarding the build quality, this is a pretty great controller. You won’t find much better for the price, and for anyone who wants to game on their phone or tablet, this is a great accessory.
