    Decent game controller

    • Written by from Sidcup

    Overall a very nice game controller.

    The build quality might not be exactly 'Apple' standard, but it is not 'cheap'. The controller may rattle slightly when not fitted to an iPhone because it has moving parts. Once the iPhone is fitted, the controller does not rattle.

    The Inputs are sturdy and responsive, the triggers feel good and it is comfy to hold. Works with a lot of games out of the box and it will benefit from even more in the coming months.

    Charge it fully before use, and if it seems to not be working, just give the reset button on the back a poke with a paper clip. Works a charm for me.

    Great Controller

    • Written by from Leicester

    When you first pull the controller out of the box it sort of feels a little flimsy but as soon as your iPhone is docked in the device those worries disappear and you realise this is a solid device.

    Overall the device feels like it was made by people who game. It's clearly modelled on an Xbox 360 controller which is no bad thing. The buttons are quite compact, but that's not always a bad thing either. Once you get used to the feel of the device you'll be right at home with the plethora of games available.

    The analog sticks feel identical to those on a 3DS or a PSP and are very responsive. I've been playing a lot of Dead Trigger 2 and San Andreas and haven't had any problems. The controller has both shoulder buttons and triggers which are very welcome. Both are responsive but the triggers do feel a little spongy; not a deal breaker though as they're perfectly usable.

    The only thing that's slightly irritating is the fact that the controller won't allow you to charge your device while it's plugged in. However, this is a rare occurrence as it's designed to be portable in the first place.

    If you game a lot or find yourself annoyed by on-screen controls, definitely pick one of these up. The Moga Ace Power uses the extended template so has a lot more buttons than the Logitech Powershell which seems a little useless without dual analog sticks.

    Highly recommend!

    I had previously bought the Logitach controller and discovered that there were not many games compatible with it. With this controller I find that there are a lot more games compatible with it.

    It is light weight and very much like an xbox controller. Overall a very good controller. I find all the controls and buttons on it work fine.

    A weak, cheap attempt at a controller

    • Written by from Tonbridge

    The good:
    • The D-Pad is very good.
    • Most of the other buttons are pretty decent.

    The bad:
    • Uncomfortable, cramped design (during use).
    • Rattles with barely acceptable build quality and materials.
    • Triggers are poor.
    • High price tag.

    And finally, the main reason why you should NOT buy this controller:

    It stopped working in less than an hour. The lights no longer turn on and the device doesn't charge. The iPod also doesn't detect anything being plugged in.

    Don't be fooled by the MFi branding; this controller just isn't up to standards.
