It will not stay connected to my Android 5.1 Lollipop tablet. It connects at first then stops working after about a minute. When I try to reconnect, it gives me an error of incorrect pin or passkey detected. I have to reboot the Tablet and controller to make it connect again. The Moga controller I have doesn't have issues with the bluetooth but the feel of the Nyko is better. When I connect the Nyko with a USB cable to the tablet, it works fine.

I bought this to use with an S6 and Gear VR, works flawlessly so far. The textured surface feels high quality and buttons are pretty solid. Only complaint is that the joysticks feel a tad high and squirrely to me, but it hardly matters playing Android games. Although with the USB port, you can also use it on a PC.

Also, be sure to read the instructions to get it to sync. There's more to it than just turning it on

Bought this for emulators on my android phone. Had a playpad, and it worked ok, but was a little small for my hands. Saw this full size at the promo price back in December and figured why not. Seems to be a crap shoot already. Pairing was ok, but going left on both dpad and analog don't work on snes emulator, and sometimes on nes. Was hoping for the best from Nyko, but.. Eh! It was fun while it lasted. Or not. Just happy I didn't pay more. Probably going with something else next time.

I use this controller on my Samsung S5 and works like it should. I play Minecraft Pocket Edition with the controller and did not have to change any settings out of the gate.

The buttons feel really good and the feel and look of the controller reminds me of a Xbox One controller.

Interesting things I noted for this controller:
-Start button needs to be mapped correctly in the Bluetooth settings
-When I first tried pairing the controller with my phone, it would show up with a series of characters with colons. Hold the home button until it turns off and turn it back on again. Iit should show up as Cygnus Controller.

UPDATE 2/26/16:

After a lot of playtime with this controller, when playing Minecraft PE, I started getting poor latency and non responsive controls. It seemed to have gotten worse even with different new batteries, or plugged in directly.

I re-paired the controller several times and tried other games but didn't want to function well. I sent the controller straight to Nyko, they paid for the shipping and plan to replace the controller or either an updated firmware.

Cheaply made. Not easy to use. Dpad is very poor. Search for my video on youTube for more information.
