- MOGA Pro Power
Samsung controller was out of stock and SteelSeries didn't have many descent reviews so I was left with only Moga Pro Power. At first I was a bit skeptical since the official Amazon listing images of the product didn't give me an impression of a quality product but either way I just ordered one for $39.99 and received it 2 days later.
So here's my impression:-
- The packaging was great. It's like one of those packages which you pick up to realize that you've chosen a quality product!
- Inside, I got the controller, a tiny USB Cable to Charge my phone, a long USB Cable to charge the controller and an excellent quality Tab holder. Ofcourse there was one user manual too.
- I imagined the controller to be of generic quality, however, it was no way inferior to even a PS4 controller. Its a very well built full size controller with 2 joysticks, 1 D-Pad and 4 triggers. It's a bit bigger than the PS4 Controller (more like XBox 360 Controller) but weighs same. Check out the comparison images I've uploaded along.
- The SMRT locks system works great for holding any smartphone upto atleast 6 inches. The lock system consists of a solid retractable clamp along with a grip on top and bottom to hold on to the device.
- The MOGA Pivot isn't the best android app out there but it gets the job done very well connecting the controller in both modes separately. The controller has A mode and B mode (HID). If you're buying it for Gear VR, you'll be using B mode to pair the unit and play VR games but for other games, you can connect in A mode. The modes can be changed by either turning the orange power button to left (A) or right (B).
- I also wanted to try this controller on PC games, so paired the controller in B mode with my Windows 8 gaming notebook and it worked great without any additional drivers. Although the 2 back side triggers didn't work and the A,B,X,Y buttons were detected in a different order in the game (Mortal Kombat X). There are other ways to map all the buttons of the controller (in A mode) using external tools and it did work but it wasn't detected as a game controller anymore though. It was as if I was using the controller as an alternative to the keyboard
- I could play all the games in Gear VR and trust me, its much easier with a controller than the inbuilt touchpad. And its not just the games, the entire Oculus store and its contents could be controlled with the gamepad, no need to use the touchpad anymore!
- It has a built-in 2200 mAh battery and it claims that it can charge your smartphone but with just 500mAh output, all it can do is slow the the discharging process if you're playing a high-end game on a flagship. If not used for charging the phone, the battery can power the controller for weeks!
Usually I write such long reviews only for review units but this one deserved it! Also, I've uploaded several images to give a good impression of the inbox items and the quality of this controller ( the listing images didn't do justice to the product)... If you're looking for a game controller primarily to be used for Android, do not look anywhere else but do not buy this for PC Gaming. Atleast not till MOGA lifts it's lazy ass to write & distribute a good set of drivers for Windows! In linux it works flawlessly (all buttons including the triggers) as far as I've heard!
The analog sticks feel okay, but they are relatively hard to click. The buttons on the controller feel really cheap, and they are also very loud.
The controller has two modes, labeled A and B. Mode A is for the official Moga driver, B is XInput, like an Xbox controller. Some games only support mode A, others only support mode B. Which brings me to my biggest complaint: Mode A only works when you have the official Moga Pivot app installed.
This app has been removed from the play store without a trace.
The controller is still usable without it, but only games with generic/Xbox controller support. My suggestion to you if you are thinking of purchasing this controller is to instead buy an Xbox one controller, which a lot of people already own, and then a "game clip", which is the same mechanism this controller has to hold your phone, that clips on to an Xbox one controller. They also make these clips for PS4 and Switch controllers.
I bought and tried PS4 Controllers [no luck], XBOX Controllers [no luck], MOGA Pocket [no luck]. Then I bought this, the MOGA POWER A Pro. It requires no programming, no rooting, and works with ALL Google Play games and aps. It even works well with the Oculus Rift VR (Including Deadhalls and Minecraft).
Two items of note though. One, do not bother with the MOGA app. It's not needed and it's pretty much a store to buy games. Two, the controller should be paired wile in "B Mode" (center orange switch, left position). B Mode is HID which stands for "Human Interface Device" which is just a long name for devices such as keyboards or mice. It should show up as "Power A HID" in your available bluetooth devices.
One really neat feature of this controller that goes overlooked, it is also a "power bank". So as you phone starts to die (from all the game time) it has a short USB cord (included) to recharge your phone. Thiugh you can not charge the phone and controller simultaneously, it is hardly a knock against this excellent controller.

Comfortable and snappy. I find the D pad to be terrible as really square and rigid corners and literally no roll to it. You can mod it but I havn't bothered.
I didn't use it for like a year and when I did, it still had full battery. I think I charge it like 2 times a month if I am using it a lot. It is picked up on SteamLink Anywhere too so PC gaming on your Phone/tablet!!!
Worth the buy for longevity and the fact you can change the type of buttons if you spend time looking for them.
I had already bought the Samsung gamepad as seen in this link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00FP825JQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I found the Samsung too small for my already small hands. So I sold it and bought this MOGA instead,
The MOGA felt much better for me. It's larger (very similar to an Xbox 360 controller), and it feels robust and well made.
It paired very easily with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It has a none removable rechargeable battery which lasts a long time before needing to be recharged.
I think it's a great wireless gamepad, and I would certainly recommend it for Samsung Gear VR use.
I was able to sync with a Nexus 6P on 7.0 in both A and B mode with no problems. I paired them both with the phone's Bluetooth settings. When I opened the app it completed the A mode setup and seemed happy. I haven't tested it with an A mode game yet but I was able to navigate the menu.
B mode works great with RetroArch, that's what I really wanted it for. I have not tried more complicated button mapping yet though.
I was expecting the clamp to mess with the awkward button placement on the 6P but it doesn't. I have it in the official case (with the fuzzy back) with the buttons up and that seems to work fine. The clamp extends plenty. Even a very big case wouldn't be a problem. I'm relieved I don't have to rig something.
So far build quality looks great. It's a nice weight, inputs seem good quality. Feels a lot like a 360 controller.
I'll update if anything sours my opinion but things are looking good!
the controller works perfectly with the headset/phone and both looks and feels like a good quality item.
I've since also started using this controller with my Raspberry Pi3 and, despite it taking a little bit of configuration up front, it's now working well over a Bluetooth connection and I'm considering buying another one (for player 2).
