I suppose i am the only one to blame for this, but this controller LITTEREALLY only works with android, it connects to my pcs Bluetooth just fine. plug in in with a cable and I can access it with ultimate software and test buttons and triggers, but this controller DOES NOT work in games on PC whether connected via USB-C or Bluetooth. I thought at first it was defective so I tried connecting to an android phone and much to my surprise it worked great on the phone.
I don’t quite know why 8bitdo took this direction, but I personally believe it is in poor taste, considering all their other controllers work across multiple platforms. VERY disappointed that this controller does not work with a PC without buying their proprietary adapter, even if you already have Bluetooth. Seems like a cash grab that I thought 8bitdoe was above. I Will be returning this controller.
The downside of this controller is that it pretty much only works well on Android. I haven't tested it on other Android games that support controllers, but there are much cheaper controllers you can buy if you're not trying to play games on xCloud. I think I just had too high of expectations having owned a SN30 pro+. I was looking to maybe replace it for use as a controller on my PC as well, but it's not as easy to use as their other controllers. For the same exact price, I could've gotten a controller that works on Switch, PC, and Android (although it may not be as seamless of an experience on xcloud and it doesn't have the xbox aesthetic). This controller does not work on anything besides Android without an adapter, with the exception that it *kind of* works on PC. For The Pro+, you can connect via bluetooth or usb and it works on Steam games with no effort. For this controller, you have to go into your settings on Steam, set up every button, and then you can use it. That part isn't hard but it's more work than I think is needed when the other controllers don't require you to do that. Worse, I tried playing a game to test it out and it said my right trigger was pressed constantly when it wasn't, so I had to go into my settings on Windows and calibrate the controller, which isn't very intuitive at all. A controller like this shouldn't require so much setup when controllers under the same moniker are plug and play. I know this isn't the intended purpose but I think that for the price and based on other controllers in the same series, having to go through this much trouble is a let down. If you're willing to spend this much on a controller solely to use on Android, it's perfect. If you want to also use this on PC, which isn't a daft expectation, it'll give you a little bit of hiccups at first but from what I can tell, it's just as nice as their other controllers after calibration.
- Works perfect for cloud gaming on android
- Analog triggers that feel as good as the pro+ analog triggers, can be set to digital triggers on the fly
- On-the-fly button swapping as well as button mapping, stick customization, and trigger customization in the Ultimate Software Program
- Build quality of other 8bitdo products
- Small, lightweight form factor, perfect for portability
- Included clip holds both phone and controller well
- Only 8BitDo controller with an Xbox controller layout, has the same Xbox aesthetic
- USB-C (which isn't a surprise for 8BitDo controllers but is nice for Xbox)
- No actual Xbox support
- No Separate DInput/XInput modes on PC
- Use on PC requires calibration if you want to use the analog triggers, not as seamless as other controllers for a similar price point
- Lightweight form factor means it might be a little awkward with larger/heavier phones
- No turbo or macro functions
- No rumble (xbox cloud gaming doesn't support rumble right now anyways)
- No power off button (turns off after 2 minutes of no bluetooth and 15 minutes of inactivity, which is negligible given the 16 hours claimed for battery life)
Final thoughts: If you want the best experience for Xbox cloud gaming, this is the controller. If you're thinking of using this in any other context, maybe think about the regular Sn30 Pro or Pro Plus. It's still usable on PC but isn't as seamless as I would expect. To be fair, this is just *my* expectations and if you are buying this just expecting a good Android controller, you will be absolutely pleased.
Great product. Solidly built. Buttons feel great, joysticks aren't too stiff, nor too soft and the triggers are in a nice, natural position.
It functions as dinput just fine and perfectly serves the Android gaming purpose, however this leads to the "cons", they're big (for me at least)
Sadly, this controller doesn't have an xinput mode.
However after reading on reddit about using the xinput over Bluetooth driver (bundled with windows 10, not 7 though) with other sn30pro controllers and those who tried it were successful, I gave it a whirl.
There's a strange reverse joystick readings in game,when connected to windows 10. I cannot fix it in the "8bitDo ultimate software", so I'm stuck using it in dinput mode.
The buttons register as different buttons when you go to the usb controller properties in the control panel. So, that needs fixing as well with a firmware update.
I know I sound nitpicky or that my review and overly critical. It's just that it is branded with xbox all over it and it's not a true xinput device, which is important to me as a pc gamer and emulation enthusiast.
Fortunately, this can be resolved easily in a firmware update.

The clip is sturdy and adjusts well. My only gripe is that my phone (Pixel 3a) does not clip centrally because of the volume/power buttons position on the phone. It's a minor annoyance but doesn't feel particularly heavy at one side (the phone is light) when mounted.
Only issues are:
1) when the smartphone is attached it becomes super top heavy making it tricky to hold the device and use the triggers. Pop out/extendable grips (like the dji mavic controllers) would have fixed this.
2) the paint scratches away easily when placing and removing the smartphone holder.
If purchased for its advertised purpose of Xbox cloud gaming on android, then it works flawlessly.
Not had any problems with the device and I love the form factor.
I do find my hands can ache sometimes after a prolonged period, but this is to be expected with such a compact form factor.
I have found that if I adjust the balance of my phone correcty and rest my wrists on my chest (I play laying down) , then my hands don't ache at all.
The price is also very competitive for a rechargable controller with phone grip.
