Android Controllers in Kenya
There are a lot of controllers on the market today, you can choose any design and any size. When compiling a selection, price or form factor was not a decisive argument. But due to the fact that ultraportable controllers did not stand up to comparison, most of the devices here have approximately the same shape and size, as well as a design similar to the controller from the Xbox. Or at least a Playstation controller.
Mad Catz C.T.R.L. works with both Android and PC. It worked without problems with Android devices with which this controller was tested (Shield Tablet, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, etc.), but when paired with a Windows PC, there were problems, for example, it was not assigned correct lower shifts, there were smaller difficulties.
Designed by C.T.R.L. gravitates towards the traditional arrangement of elements, as in the Xbox 360, which has become the key to its popularity among controllers for PC and Android. There are two analog sticks, a D-pad, 4 main action buttons on the front (A, B, X, Y), Start, Back, a sync button, two triggers, and two smaller shifters. Perhaps one of the best extras is the two front-facing multimedia buttons that act as play / pause, fast forward, rewind, and volume control. This is especially useful when using the Gear VR and for controlling a Shield Tablet connected to a TV via HDMI from across the room.
C.T.R.L. there is another unique feature – three different modes, which are activated by toggling the three-position slider. The far left is GameSmart mode, which is basic for use with Android. In the center is the mouse mode, which works on both PC and Android devices. It gives you a full mouse cursor that you control with the left analog stick. Finally, switching to the right allows you to use the controller in PC games.
In terms of batteries, this controller uses AA type and is capable of providing approximately 40 hours of continuous gameplay. Even if you do not need so much, in any case, in this part, you will not experience problems with the device.
For those who require a game controller that can be inserted into a phone, Mad Catz C.T.R.L. there is a screw fastening. When it is removed, a strange protrusion and a hole remain on top, and this is not very encouraging, however, there is nothing particularly terrible here either. The mount itself holds the phone well thanks to the sliding “vice”, and this is true for any device.
Overall, C.T.R.L. not only works great, but also feels good in the hands, it weighs enough for those who like to “feel the thing in their hands”, but does not seem too bulky. We can recommend it to all those who are interested not only in the feel of the gadget, but also in special additional functions such as working as a mouse, supporting a PC and working with media content.
If MadCatz captivates with its media features, good phone holder and feel, the Stratus XL is without a doubt the coolest Bluetooth gamepad we reviewed. It has a great look and a good color scheme – black with orange and gray accents, and it also feels great in the hands. A pleasant weight, but not excessive, and the device feels solid enough.
Like MadCatz C.T.R.L., this controller resembles that of the Xbox, but the button layout is more like a Playstation. The two joysticks are pushed down and in a row, with the D-pad at the top left. On the other side there are four main action buttons (A, B, X, Y), and in the center there are three unique buttons, on the end there are standard four shift keys.
SteelSeries Stratus XL is compatible with PC and Android, in the case of Android it works equally well with any game that supports controllers, including your favorite emulators. Android Controllers in Kenya
Unfortunately, this Android controller is more geared towards tablet users and those looking to pair it with a PC as it lacks a phone holder. You can of course get a phone case with a kickstand, but this will limit the portability of the design. However, if you want a controller that looks and feels great, you can’t go wrong with the SteelSeries Stratus XL.
Despite the fact that the gadget is already several years old, Power Pro is still one of the best controllers, and not only in the Moga range, but in general on the market. Yes, it feels a bit cheaper than the previous two, but the rechargeable Li-ion battery and built-in phone holder make this a great option for gamers looking for the ultimate portable solution.
The controller includes two analog sticks with a click function, a D-Pad, four action buttons, Start and Select buttons, two triggers and two shifters. Once again, we see the influence of the Xbox 360 / One on the layout of the elements. The design is dominated by black with slight orange accents.
