    "My brother plays a lot of games on his phone so I decided to get him a controller for his birthday. The first one that I tried out was the POWER A MOGA Pro Power. The response timing was pretty good and my brother said that he loved it."

    "I've had quite a few SteelSeries controllers over time, and they are always top quality, never had a single problem with them. Easy to connect to your Android and the batteries will last a few game sessions."

    "I do not think that this is one of the best Android game controllers, as it is not designed just for Android and can be used on multiple formats. The other problem I have with this remote is that if you want to use it with your phone comfortably you need to buy an additional product."

    "Finally, some cool stuff for Android phones! You can also hook it up to your computer, or to a Samsung VR headset. I prefer using my phone though, since it's totally wireless, I can game anywhere I want and take it room to room. Decent battery life at 5-8 hours... I guess if someone is a hardcore gamer they might be having to swap out the batteries every day, but that's the only downside I see. "

    "POWER A MOGA Hero Power is one of the coolest and least expensive gadgets you can get a person who enjoys games on their mobile device. Just plug it in and it acts as a holder for your phone and provides a controller that functions just like a normal console controller."

    "With all of the current games coming out on Android, it makes sense that controllers would be a needed product. I went shopping recently and picked up an iPega PowerLead PL184CN Bluetooth Controller. This controller turned out to be really glitchy and not worth the money."

    "How can I be expected to have a marathon gaming session if my controller doesn't even last the day? Worse, this is supposed to let me play tablet games without needing to have the tablet in my hands the whole time; but most of my tablet games don't work with it. And the controller itself heats up the same as the tablet when it's used for longer than a few minutes. What's the point of this product? I returned it for a refund."
