A Oddly Decent Smart Phone Controller, But It Has Its Flaws.
on 6 September 2016
I used this on a Samsung Galaxy S3 and was pleasantly surprised with how well this controller coped with 90% of compatible games. The controller comes very well packaged, looks and feels very premium in the hand and was just generally impressed with the overall build quality from the controller itself to the fake leather bag that comes with it. I was also surprised with how comfy the controller was to hold and how responsive the thumbsticks are. But there are a few things about this controller that ever so slightly let it down, some are fixed with other more expensive MOGA controllers, others aren't and wont ever be. Now keep in mind for the price this is a great controller and the reasons I believe this controller isnt as good as is could be really dont matter all that much for this price, but its something buyers should know before hand.
To use this controller you need to use the MOGA pivet app, on the app it shows you all the games that are Moga compatible and unfortunately there arent that many... theres alot dont get me wrong but theres also alot of games that work on all bluetooth controllers that dont work with pivet, there is a work around with another non official app but thats a pain to use and doesnt work half the time. So if youre gonna be buying any MOGA controllers check first if your favourite games work with it.
So thats the reason all MOGA controllers are slightly flawed.
And this is why this one might not be the best option MOGA wise... So take a game like GTA SanAndreas. Game works flawlessly with this controller, but.... This controller doesnt have enough buttons to be able to do everything using the controller so you end up having to awkwardly press the screen whilst driving to do drivebys and a few other things. This is fixed with more expensive models that fully replicate a console controller though.
All in all this is a great controller for £7 but it has its flaws, some that this model only has others that branch out across all MOGA's controllers. but if you want something small, portable and you know the games you want to play work with it then this honestly isnt a half bad buy. Just dont expect to play emulators with it cus theres no support whatsoever.
