There are a number of different cellular controllers we examined that simply missed out on a spot above, plus a couple of that we’re eager to check quickly.
Turtle Beach Recon Cloud for $100: Here is one other Xbox-branded controller that helps Xbox Cloud (*11*) and Remote Play and comes with one free month of Game Pass Ultimate. It feels good in-hand, has a strong cellphone clip, and works with Android, Xbox, and Windows. It additionally options some audio enhancements (when plugged in), programmable buttons, and a helpful Pro-Aim function that reduces sensitivity on the precise stick for aiming in FPS video games. It’s a great improve decide over the PowerA controller listed above, however solely if you’d like the additional options.
GameSir X3 for $100: On paper, that is an improve over the X2, with refined buttons, extra choices for the joysticks, and a cooling fan on the again, however I like to recommend the cheaper X2 Pro listed above as an alternative, as a result of the fan provides bulk and weight and it wants energy by way of a devoted USB-C port. (It has a separate USB-C port for pass-through charging of your cellphone.)
PowerA Moga XP7-X Plus for $100: This controller affords all the things the XP-5 X does however you may also take away the stand within the middle to fit in your cellphone (my Pixel 6 Pro matches properly). It is sturdy, affords loads of buttons (solely a screenshot button is lacking), and may wirelessly cost your cellphone. But it’s costly, has a MicroUSB port once I’d choose USB-C, and has solely a 2,000 mAh battery, so stick to the XP-5 X except you actually need that spring-loaded cradle to suit your cellphone in.
8BitDo SN30 Pro for $45: Conjuring reminiscences of the SNES, this controller works with Android, Windows, MacOS, and Switch. It has built-in rumble, a strong D-pad, good battery life, and a USB-C port.
Razer Kishi V2 for $100: This standard extendable cellular controller is available in Android and iPhone variations. Both can stream PlayStation or Xbox video games and work with Windows too. But now we have not examined it but.
Backbone One Android for $100: The Android model of our favourite cellular controller for the iPhone is out now, however now we have not had an opportunity to check it but.
