5.0 out of 5 stars Great controller BUT!!
Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2021
I love the controller everything works as advertised but it’s not durable at all.. I’ve had the controller for 8 days and already and joystick has snapped mid-game on me.. it’s been a great week tho.. definitely expected a lot more for a hundred bucks. oh well guess it’s back to the drawing board and the old controller clip..

UPDATE UPDATE!!!! THEY REPLACED THE UNIT AT NO COST!!! I’ve had no problems with the new controller and it is once a again my favorite. They have AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Console quality on mobile?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 21, 2021
Okay so Backbone One, console quality but on mobile. Could it be? Well the answer so far is….yes and no. This nifty, ergonomic and great looking bit of kit ticks many boxes for me. Lightning connection that deals with any Bluetooth latency issues, power pass thru for longer gaming sessions, dedicated button for app front end and headphone jack input are all really good additions. The backbone app is really pleasing visually, and is easy to use, it gives the feeling of a console type front end and really adds to the experience. I’ve tried lots of games so far and they all benefit from the controller, although maybe not as much as pairing an existing PS4 or Xbox controller. I’ve had nothing but problems with the Xbox cloud gaming part, games judder and stutter and are basically unplayable, this could be an issue at Xbox end rather than backbone but if you’re partnering with a big company to give a months free trial it should work perfectly and not be a janky mess. The controller snaps on to your phone with minimal fuss and feels nice and solid in the hand when fitted. Worth mentioning you HAVE to remove any protective case from your phone or it won’t fit, I also had to remove the glass protector from my screen as the edges obstructed the backbone from fitting properly. So no case and no screen protector while in use, with most newer iPhones starting at around £900 this makes me anxious, and will defo cut down on how and where I use the pad. Tactile feedback from buttons and triggers have a decent feel and and are more than responsive enough for COD mobile and other games. I enjoyed using this pad for the first half hour or so but then a few little niggles crept in. The pads themselves are comparable to Nintendo switch joycons, they are quite small and my grown ups hands were a little too big for them to remain comfortable for any length of time. This is important to mention as I think most folk buying a £99 phone control pad will be mainly grown up man children like myself! If you have medium to large hands this will 100% apply to you! If switch joycons are not for you then the chances are this won’t be either! The right side joystick is too low on the pad meaning I have to hold my thumb in a weird position to get the best from it, bit of a pain when in most games that stick is used for aiming. Before you buy this expensive product I’d definitely have a go on a switch with joycons to compare how large your hands will be on it. While I’m talking about price there’s a bit of a glaring problem that isn’t documented ANYWHERE on any of the adverts or info for this pad. Once you’ve paid your £99 you then have to subscribe at £44 per year in order to use it! You do get a year free but still a completely hidden subscription fee is a bit of a shock on a mobile gaming peripheral, and if I’m completely honest there’s not a chance I would have bought this at this price knowing there was a subscription as well. Am still weighing up whether to send this pad back as while it is good and I was happy to pay £99 for it, the subscription and the way they have been very quiet about it until the pad is in your hands has left me with a sour taste. I usually play with a paired PS4 pad and tbh that works much better for the majority of games it’s just a pain propping the phone up to play.

So to summarise pros and cons -

PRO’s

Looks great
Nice packaging / unboxing experience
Looks and feels like a premium product
Power pass thru
Headphone jack
Backbone app is really nice to use

CON’s

Expensive
Purposely hidden subscription model
Not very comfortable for longer games
Joycon placement poor
Not for people with big hands

In short, is this a good pad? Well yes but with more than a few caveats. The kicker for me is the hidden subscription plus the fact your expensive and precious iPhone has to be completely unprotected to use it. It’s a great idea but the execution isn’t quite there yet. If they were to address some of these issues in a later product it would be great. I’m not sure if I’m keeping it as yet as I thought this was a solution to replace a paired controller but sadly at this point it’s not. Hope this review helps someone out before they drop a small fortune!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great mobile controller with a sadly overpriced companion app
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 18, 2022
My biggest disappointment is the fact that their overly praised companion app has a paid subscription of £43.99 a year which I think is absolutely ridiculous. The app does not offer anything worthwhile to justify a price this high.

Anyway, the good bit about this particular controller is that it has a rigid back plate supporting both sides of the controller. It is why I went for this one instead of the Razer Kishi which, by the looks of it, wobbles in certain use cases.

The layout of this controller is quite good. The buttons feel great, triggers are comfortable. The size of the controller is a bit of a hit or miss. My hands are not particularly big but I did find it rather difficult if not painful getting used to holding it. I play with an Xbox Series Controller for the most part on my Mac and have been playing with a Xbox360 controller for over a decade before that. backbone one definitely feels a tad small in comparison which is especially noticeable with the Right analog stick. Because the stick is quite close to the edge of the had grip, it forces me to bend my thumb just so I can control it. Took me about a week of getting used to and now I feel fine using it but keep in mind that the experience may be so uncomfortable that it will hurt.
The analog sticks have very little travel to them in comparison to an Xbox controller. Only a bit more than the PSP had back in the day. Also less resistance than a PSP so it can feel quite sensitive at first which, again, takes time getting used to. they are rubberised which is nice and my thumbs do not feel like they are going to slip.

I've been using it with GeForce NOW mainly and my experience has been great.

The best part about the controller is just how easy it is to put in on and off my phone . I use an iPhone XS and it fits perfectly. I thought it would take up more space in my backpack than a Razor Kishi would but to my surprise it is quite compact.

Overall I do recommend it.
Just know that there will be an adjustment period if your hands fit a Large glove or larger and especially if you are used to an Xbox controller on top of that.
