This controller works perfectly. It's very well-built; if anything, the D-Pad and the XYAB buttons can be a bit shoddy, giving a cheaper feel than the rest of the controller. The triggers and the joysticks are very high quality, especially the latter ones; to me, they are indistinguishable from the ones on the Xbox controllers. As for the thingy that locks your phone on the controller, it's also well-built and reliable: it won't drop your phone on your face if you are playing on your bed :) In addition to that, given its design, it doesn't block any buttons on your phone nor the headphones jack. The battery charges quite quickly and seems to be working correctly so far. It's not very heavy, but it doesn't feel cheap on your hands. In regards to compatibility, I must say I use it exclusively with emulators. No problems so far, no need for a driver either. Just turn it on on Keyboard mode (A+Home), make your phone or tablet connect with it via Bluetooth, and go to favorite emulator and start configuring its keys (just like you'd do on your computer). Easy peasy and lots of fun. Since any half-decent smartphone (mine's Quad Core with 512mb) can run a NES/SNES/PSX/etc emulator, this device can turn your phone in an emulation machine. Which is pretty neat. As for the cons, I'd be hard-pressed to find any. Some people complain about it's size... but I don't know about that. I'm not a big guy, but my hands aren't by any means small (21 cm thumb to pinky fully extended) and I'm not getting cramps from using it. YMMV, though. If there's one clear con about this product, it'd clearly be its user manual. Not that you'd need a big instruction booklet to use it, but at 7 small pages in English, it's by no means very comprehensive. Still, enough to make it work. For me personally, the biggest downside about this controller is its price. These kind of controllers are kinda new and rare, and even rarer to find at this quality, which makes their price be higher than it probably should be. But it's either pay 20 € now or wait for its price to go down. You make your choice. I made mine and I'm happy, that's all that I can really say about it.
The device easily syncs up with any Android phone and is detected as a Bluetooth HID device. The usage of this device depends upon whether the games support it or not. However, it works great for emulators for playing retro games on your phone.
excelente producto, facil de usar y configurar. su calida es buena respecto al precio, es compatible con varios emuladores como lo son: snes, emu64, psp, etc. cuenta con su propia aplicacion tanto en chino como en ingles, su bateria es de larga duracion y se demora muy poco en cargar
1- Funciona muy bien con android. Si funciona mal es por el botón (letra) , al configurar presionar (home) y una letra de la derecha ejem: Y,A. 2- Buena duración de la batería y demora poco en cargar. 3- muy cómodo al jugar y manipular
Pros: seems solid, well built Cons: very hard to setup, included instructions are useless, suggests to download some suspicious software (no thanks!), very hard to find instructions online, no native support in Android nor have I found any apps that recognize it Verdict: good hardware crippled by...
Pros: seems solid, well built Cons: very hard to setup, included instructions are useless, suggests to download some suspicious software (no thanks!), very hard to find instructions online, no native support in Android nor have I found any apps that recognize it Verdict: good hardware crippled by a very hard setup procedure that, unfortunately, beat me. There are some people who manage to use this gamepad successfully with some games, and "somewhat" with most games, but being the kind of person that understands command lines and built PC desktops in the past, this was just too much for me, so it's still useless.
