Gamepad or game controller is an accessory for mobile devices, which is somewhat beneficial to many. Aside from the ease of usage instead of using the touchscreen display. You can also fire rapid button combinations which is harder to do using your fingers and tapping the screen simultaneously. I’m sure after reading that line, you tried and it is really hard isn’t? well the price of game controller these days are very cheap. You can find china-made controllers in Amazon for as cheap as 10 bucks.
Some games are not directly compatible with game controller you need to mount each button manually, while some games are not picky – meaning they can easily adopt to the new controller automatically which is definitely great. While browsing in Amazon I’ve found some affordable, yet good controllers from company such as Ipega.
Before you purchase a game pad, It is wise to ask yourself if what particular games will you play, and if it will truly make the buy worth it. Well if your answer is you will going to play first-person shooters, racing, role playing games, and moba games, then I can say go ahead and purchase one now because you will definitely see the benefit of using such device, rather just using your bare fingers.
I also want to emphasize that these devices are battery-powered of course, they are wireless and what do you expect. You need to find one which can lasts for 3-5 hours. It is very important that you understand that you know when your gaming controller will going to die as you are on the middle of an important mission of the game, then suddenly it run out of battery.
I hope you can find the best device for your smartphone, you can also try purchasing a wired version then buy a separate USB to micro-USB cable which is well known as USB OTG cable adapter and you can use wired controllers such as Logitech, Steelseries, and many more. You won’t have to deal with discharging issues with this idea.
