Controller for use with Android?

Post by Katie » Fri Oct 02, 2020 8:11 pm

Hi, I just installed the Android version and tried a few games and it seems really nice. However, using my phone or tablet's touchscreen to control it is just awful. Not being able to feel the buttons makes it really easy to miss a button press. Are there any Android compatible game controllers? Maybe either wireless bluetooth or USB-C?

If they're bluetooth, then they'll be compatible. The Xbox One controllers will work, a few of the latest Sony Playstaion controllers will, and there are others by brands like SteelSeries and 8BITDO. This Android Authority article is brief but names a few. I bought a SteelSeries Free a few years ago. Nice and compact so it can be put in a pocket but not so small as to be unusable and it's rechargeable via micro USB. Seems the replacement for the Free is the Stratus if you want that compact size, or the Stratus 2 if you like something Xbox controller sized and shaped.
