This controller turns your Android phone into a portable Xbox

Send transmission on the awkward triggers.

. The RIG MG-X, though, has an appealingly straightforward design for a product category that can be a little awkward, which makes for a sleeker approach when coupled with the Xbox buttons. It’s nice not to have to think about which icons map to which commands; you can just naturally use the same buttons you’d have on a conventional Xbox setup.

The controller has a gap in the middle that extends out to clamp around your phone, which connects over Bluetooth. Nacon says it should work with any phone running Android 6 and above with a screen up to 6.7 inches; I mostly used it with a Vivo X70 Pro Plus, which is a giant phone with a 6.78-inch screen, and it works fine. (It does not, however, work with iPhones at all.)

Wow Would like to have one Hope I can real intense games rpg berbercantsh00t perfect for school Latency latency latency Looks like a Gamevice!!! Nothing new here -10 years old and I recall reading Gamevice is suing Switch I like razer Kishi design better. If it’s Bluetooth then it would work on iOS too, no?

No it doesn’t 80$ for that piece of shit? Are you kidding me for that price you could buy a brand new xbox controller and connect it to your bluetooth and it will be significantly better lmao. These cheap ass controller analogs will never be as good as just using a controller I have a MOBA clip and through that I play all my Xbox games on phone only

These things have existed for years lol

New Android game uses a smart vibrator as a controller | EngadgetA new Android game uses a bio-sensing vibrator as a controller.. The_Poolshark DrLupo Darkness429 When's the stream?! Never has the word joystick been more apt. Alas. It's here. The smart vibrator that can also be used as a game controller. Pass the controller bro.

Although not-yet support for cradling Android (cabled, for now) article fails to mention Backbone One (Verge, Apr 2021: '9/10 stunning', updated Nov 2021 re Android.) Subscription for non-iOS/cabled use is extortion, but still worth keeping eye on backbone in this space. So does the Razer Kishi. Looks like those concepts you’d see floating around the rooosterteeth forum back in 2007

No it won't, i also had Razer Kishi which is the best one for these stuff and it was rather disappointed with right stick blocking me to press the right side buttons and S21U not fitting in nicely. Also tried xbox gamepass and the aspect ratio and everything is rather dumb Why does that phone look like it's 3 feet wide lol

how'd they come up with that Stefman95

Backbone One review | EngadgetThe Backbone One is a controller attachment with a telescopic backplate that fits around any iPhone. You're forgetting 2 major flaws: 1 - It doesn't fit an iPhone with a case, and 2 - It doesn't fit the iPhone 13 range of iPhones. That's two major fails in my book.

recently released Xbox-specific version . The RIG MG-X, though, has an appealingly straightforward design for a product category that can be a little awkward, which makes for a sleeker approach when coupled with the Xbox buttons. It’s nice not to have to think about which icons map to which commands; you can just naturally use the same buttons you’d have on a conventional Xbox setup. The controller has a gap in the middle that extends out to clamp around your phone, which connects over Bluetooth. Nacon says it should work with any phone running Android 6 and above with a screen up to 6.7 inches; I mostly used it with a Vivo X70 Pro Plus, which is a giant phone with a 6.78-inch screen, and it works fine. (It does not, however, work with iPhones at all.) Bluetooth is a trade-off I’m okay with This is quite a chunky device, and it’s wider than an Xbox controller even before you extend it to insert your phone. That’s not necessarily a bad thing — it feels well-built and and I wouldn’t have a problem tossing it into a bag when traveling. The use of Bluetooth instead of a USB-C connector is a trade-off I’m okay with, because it makes for a more compatible design and ensures the controller can be used with the phone in a case. It does mean that you have to manually pair with the phone, though, and charge the controller itself over USB-C from time to time; Nacon quotes around 20 hours of battery life. Overall, the RIG MG-X’s controls are small but effective. The analog sticks aren’t as big as a full-size Xbox controller’s, but they’re bigger than a Nintendo Switch Joy-Con’s and feel more satisfying to use. The face buttons are also quite small but tactile and clicky, while the D-pad is accurate enough despite being a little mushier than I’d prefer. I have big hands and I found the RIG MG-X to have reasonably good ergonomics over time for most games. The RIG MG-X’s triggers are its biggest flaw. There is one exception, though, when it comes to the triggers. For some reason they’re unusually difficult to press in all the way, which is a big problem for games like racers where you need to hold them down a lot. A game like where you’re regularly making individual squeezes to fire weapons is okay, but I was wondering why I was losing so many races in Forza Horizon 5 before figuring out that I didn’t have my foot pressed firmly enough on the gas. You can do it, but it takes more force than any other controller I’ve ever used, and it’s not at all comfortable for extended play sessions. It’s unfortunate that this isn’t a good Forza Horizon 5
