BUT, it still works great though! As long as you know your way around controller emulation. I downloaded x360ce, placed it within the same directories as the .exe's for the games I wanted xinput with, x360ce does an online check, grabs the profile for the CTRLR, and voila! You basically have a bluetooth xbox controller. (I have tested this with steam games like Mark of the Ninja, Owlboy, Neon Chrome, La Mulana, etc and the results have been great/identical to my actual xbox controller).
I got this because I work long shifts in a data center (12 hours of waiting for HDD's to fail). I use a tablet for movie watching etc, but when I want to play a game I run into the problem of having to unplug my charger to plug in a wireless dongle for my xbox controller, which means I can only play for 2 hours tops. This controller solves that issue by letting me connect without any dongle so I can keep my tablet powered for more than a few hours. So yes, this controller connects to built in WINDOWS tablet bluetooth! (Haven't tried laptop but I would be shocked if it didn't) That's a pretty rare feature and the main reason I purchased it. There is also the PC mode which = mouse mode, it turns your right stick into the mouse movement and the a button into left click, etc. This is also handy as it reduces my need to carry another piece of equipment in my bag. The built in volume buttons didn't matter to me at first, but after using them I love being able to adjust volume on the fly too.
Sticks are a bit stiff and feel tall but are better than other 3rd party sticks, triggers feel identical to the 360 controller as well as the back and start buttons, D-pad is BETTER than the 360 controller, shoulder buttons are larger and more sensitive than the 360's, face buttons have a good responsive push but their reset is longer than the 360/PS controllers (the button has to travel further back before it can be pushed again, this is not noticeable until you have a rapid button mash/QTE event). Face is glossy, back is untextured matte. My opinion is that this controller is about as close as a 3rd party can get to OEM specs without breaking the bank for a pro controller.
I'm not a big fan of console-style controllers but am looking for an alternative to touch-screen controls for games on my phone. This was the first controller I tried and while it seems to be okay for some games, I had issues using it while playing a FPS-style game. The problem was with using the left joystick for aiming. I kept overcompensating and moving it in the opposite direction when looking up or down. I could find no way to invert the joystick, which is probably the game's fault, or adjust the dead zone/sensitivity. As an avid PC gamer I'm used to having customization options in my controllers so this was my biggest disappointment. I was also unable to use the optional phone clip with my Droid Turbo unless I removed the Otter case I have protecting it. The case made it just a tad too thick for the maximum extension of the clip. Even with the case removed the clip barely fit and I had to slide it significantly off-center to prevent the clip from depressing the phone's side buttons.
+ Solid construction
+ Ease of connection via Bluetooth
+ Flexibility of use (controller or mouse on a phone, tablet or pc)
- No customization or calibration
- Large dead zone in left joystick makes aiming difficult in FPS games on smaller screens (phone)
- Optional phone clip too small for larger phone with case
- Optional phone clip difficult to use when phone has buttons on side
Upon first inspection I thought it was perfect. The buttons are decent, the triggers and bumpers are quite good and the analog sticks are great! On top of that, I absolutely LOVE the removable phone holder - it's easy to attach/remove while at the same time being very sturdy. Yet, as soon as I tried to use it I realised this controller's biggest flaw: the d-pad is terrible. Sure, it's fine for navigating menus and the like, but it frequently registers up/down presses whole holding left or right, making it useless for platformers and retro games. What a shame.

Would I buy another one if I lost or broke it? Definitely, and without even thinking about it!
Overall I'm very happy with this. Not laggy, doesn't feel/look tacky and has good compatibility with everything I've thrown at it.
