    "Razer makes good products that I have used over the past decade. This is no exception, I picked it up on sale and have been using it with my Android tablet. Synching the controller to the tablet was a breeze and I found it easy and comfortable to use on games that support bluetooth controllers."

    "I purchased this not knowing for sure if it would work with the S7/Gear VR combo and it absolutely blew me away. It even works well with some other games as well. I'm finally able to use a helicopter sim on my phone and it feels great.. I didn't have to download the pivot app at all, just configured using Mode B. No hassle at all. I Definitely would recommend this to others."

    "I went on a trip last month that was going to last for a few weeks. this was going to require a lot of traveling. I really enjoy playing video games but too often can't due to my busy work schedule. I ended up getting into mobile gaming and wanted to get a controller for it to make it feel more natural. After picking this up I can safely say that this is one of the best investments I've made into video game adapters and such. It was real easy to use and set up and seems to have the phone neatly secured during play. "

    "This controllable is a very respectable controller that is basically an xbox type ripoff, but it works just great. The buttons have a great feel with low travel and the color is sleek and it has a nice feel in your hands. The cord is a litle on the short side but I definitely would recommend it for someone looking for a cheaper replacement gamepad. "
