Now Just Another Part of My Phone
August 18, 2013
I was getting tired of using the touch screen buttons, so I decided to see if there was perhaps such a thing as a controller to use with smart phones. Thankfully there are people out there that are already thinking for me.
I'm glad there were different choices to go with and based on reviews from others, I decided to go with the Gametel device because I read that it was the easiest and most simple one out there. I also chose this one because it works with many emulators and games that I would play with.
The product was delivered quickly and the packaging was clean. The directions to set up the device was easy to understand and the set up alone went smoothly. Every time I turn the controller on, I have no problems. The buttons are firm and made well. I expect the controller to last a long time with proper care. I even use the plastic covering it came with as a case.
I thought I was going to have a problem with the phone fitting in the clip because I have a case on it, but it fits in real snug, no problem. I do wish the clip would lock in place when pulling it up all the way because it can be sort of a struggle at first to get it in, but once you figure out a good method, you'll be fine then and get use to it. Also, I'm not sure how many other phones are set up, but my Droid Razr HD has it's volume buttons in the middle, so I have to have the phone sitting on either side a bit, otherwise it would be covering up the volume buttons. It may look a little funny, but the phone is still sitting in the clip nice and firm, so it's not that bad. Also,it doesn't come with a charger which was a bummer because of the price and I'd rather charge my phone and controller at the same time.
So to break it down, here are my pros and cons -
- easy set up
- easy to use
- can hold phone in clip with phone case on
- delivery was fast and packaging was clean
- clip doesn't lock for easy placement
- covers volume buttons in the middle, have to set to the side a bit
- does not come with charger
Over this is still a great product and I do recommend purchasing one.
