Gaming and Computing December 21, 2022
The thing with mobile gaming is the (usually) massive drain on your battery. Do you push for that one final game when at 6% or do you send that crucial text to your significant other, letting them know you’ve not disappeared off the edge of the world and are just running late? You know you’re going to play that game, just as surely as you know the battery will go flat halfway through a match! The point of this? This controller has wireless charging so now you have no excuse for not sending that text message! After the game of course…
This controller is X-Box licenced and, with Gamepass Ultimate on your mobile you can play all sorts of games using this controller with an air of familiarity and a level of control you most likely don’t have with the mobile device on its own. It can fit up to a 7.13“ long device (The only mobile I could find where this would be too small was the Galaxy Z Fold so it should be good to fit whatever you have as long as it’s not one of those), has 2 mappable buttons to aid in your gaming and is compatible with Android and Windows 10/11 games. A word of warning – it may look like an Xbox controller and feel like one but it’s not compatible with Xbox on its own.
One thing that does stand out for me with this particular controller however is that it comes with a little stand for your mobile device so you can actually ‘squash’ the controller down in to a normal size and play as if you had your own little desktop screen! And this means you can play on larger screens such as tablets in this mode. Fantastic if you prefer your screen a little larger.
