I have this controller and it works pretty good. The iOS support is the old icade version. So don't purchase it for that. Works great on android.

Yeah this gets an F on Fakespot. I don't know why you'd pay this amount when there are plentiful other controllers with real quality reviews for less.

My Dual Shock 4 + this mount [amazon.com] + this cable [amazon.com] are working beautifully on my emulators.

OP built up his post count in random threads and now posts a lot of random code deals from Amazon. Seems like a paid seller.

Yeah, the DS4 is a very good controller a lot of people already own. Grabbing a mount and some sort of USB OTG cable makes for a much better gaming experience than using one of these godawful cheapo controllers. If you can use a DS4 or Xbox One controller, you should. There are no better controllers.

Yeah, doesn't look like he's made a regular post in 5 months. Only Amazon codes for F rated knockoff items. Doesn't even participate in his own threads. Definitely looks like he sold his account or is shilling.

My understanding is the best android/windows joystick on the market is Madcatz C.T.R.L.R. [jet.com]which you can get for $40. Much better investment IMHO.

I prefer MOGA since it charges my phone while I play

Wow. Lots of negative comments from people who have never tried using this controller. I own the g3s and a xbox360 controller. Imo, bluetooth is the way to go. OTG is a pain in the ass if you have a long cord, and g3s' bluetooth has no noticeable input lag ime.

The g3s has a wayyy better d-pad than the xbox360, and the d-pad is probably the most important thing for emulation. 8bitdo has decent build quality, but the d-pad sucks and isn't reliable. DS3/4 are good controllers, but they require root+sixaxis controller app for bluetooth functionality.

This is a good option for people who don't want to shell out $40+ for a name brand controller, and it's higher quality than a lot of the other cheaper brands.

I have both gamesir g3s and 8bitdo SFC30. imho the SFC30 is the best controller for Nintendo emulator because of its key layout and g3s is better suited for more recent games on Android or pc. If you look into their product pictures, 8bitdo has B key on the left and A key on the right, and similarly left Y and right X, which perfectly match to old fashioned Nintendo pad. Whereas g3s has a opposite layout closer to Xbox controller. It may not be a big deal to some as you can always reconfigure and remap the buttons but i just don't want to visually confuse myself.

And $24 for a g3s doesn't appear a too hot price, lukewarm I shall tell. I got my new g3s for $15 over eBay during a gamesir sale.

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to get this or not. Is this the best bluetooth controller for mobile devices?
