Anyone have experience with gamepads for your android phone? I'm thinking of picking up one to play SNES games and the like - but would love to hear from others (or see product recommendations)!
@funnylookinhat I have two. Basically, they all aren't that great. Thus, I'd recommend buying whatever you like visually better and something that fits your hands.
@lig when you say they aren't that great what do you mean? Are the connections not reliable? Or are they just cheaply made? Or do they tend to not work well with different games?
@funnylookinhat I didn't have a chance to find a good feeling one. They mostly aren't expensive and work accordingly. Bluetooth transmitters work in close proximity. On a couple of meters, there could be disconnects. Some have a wired connection option, though.
If a game supports a controller they usually work as intended.
In general, they aren't made for pro gaming and work and feel like regular consumer devices.
Nothing less, nothing more.
PS: SF30 Pro model Seems to be out of production! But there are similar products in the 8BitDo lineup.
@meisam In fact - I think I will get one of those along with a clip: https://www.amazon.com/8Bitdo-Smartphone-Clip-SN30-SF30-Pro/dp/B075HF3WVV/
That seems like a great way to keep any smartphone ready to play ROM titles (and whatever other platformers might be compatible)!
