Gamepad for the phone: what is it and how to choose

A gamepad for a mobile phone is a gaming gadget designed to work with a smartphone, laptop or computer for games. Modern phones could become full-fledged devices for popular games.

Gamepad for smartphones is presented as a convenient device, the purpose of which is to expand the functionality and capabilities of the phone in game mode. Previously, games on phones were much simpler and less technically demanding, but today the gaming industry has been able to interest players of all ages with its thoughtfulness, modern graphics, complex plots, and well-drawn characters.

Most often, gamepads are purchased by experienced gamers, as well as those who just want to get acquainted with the world of exciting games.

Game controllers: types and features

Most often, when buying devices for gaming, there are two popular devices - a gamepad or a joystick. The main features, appearance and functionality are the points that will distinguish the gamepad from the joystick.

The Gamepad is a type of game controller that has buttons designed for two-handed gaming. A joystick is similar to a gear lever in a car, but it has a set of triggers and keys (used for one-handed play).

Gamepad controls and keys

The keys on a gamepad should be pleasant to use and easy to press in game modes. It should be borne in mind that gamepads can have a variety of interfaces and formats for gaming, as well as multimedia keys with the ability to light and vibrate.

Smartphone mount

The mobile phone holder can securely fix the device on the joystick, and also adjust the gamepad itself. Most modern joysticks provide holders for mounting mobile phones with different diagonals, which allows you to play even on tablets (some models).

Joystick Battery

Wireless format devices tend to discharge during operation after a certain period of use. When buying a device, it is important to look at the battery capacity and the amount of play time without charging. In some cases, this time may be 15 hours.

Additional gamepad features

Manufacturers can equip gaming gadgets with complementary and useful features (for example, cooling a mobile phone during a game).

Gamepad control options depending on gaming preferences

For most games, 8 to 10 controller elements are enough for users. When choosing a device, pay attention to the D-pad key. For fighting games, it is recommended to purchase a gamepad with a split d-pad, as the split version allows you to use even more different algorithms for attacks.
