One thing that frustrates me about gaming on my phone is how much screen is taken up by on screen control interfaces. Having bigger than average hands, this normally leads to a less than desirable experience. Enter the Moga Gaming Controller. Awesomeness in a $50 throwback to retro gaming that also brings new school design into the mix.
Made for Android phones and tablets, the Moga Gaming Controller is the perfect accessory for those who love to game on the go. Google play titles are instantly upgraded thanks to the intuitive controls and familiar feel of the Moga Controller(think Playstation sized). What I love the most about the Moga controller is that it's connected to your sdmartphone or tablet via bluetooth for a simple connected experience. The biggest drawback to using the Moga is that it's not totally pair and play compatible, as you have to download the Moga app which serves as an extra step between yourself and gaming glory. One feature that i was relatively neutral on, was the fact that your Moga controller is battery powered. It gives you around 20 hours of play time, but a rechargeable battery absolutely wins in the convenience category.
If you have an Android device (OS 2.3 or higher), and love to game, this is absolutely your best way to go. Available now through Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and online retailers, $50 and the Moga Controller is all yours.
