Reviews around chick (5.00 of 5)

  • Only works with "happy chick emulator" which is ILLEGAL
  • Included happy chick app is a nice addition for old school gamers
  • the Happy Chick app is super Awesome has vr games all free also used this app to play the vr games in gear vr
  • I'd give it the 5th star if its un-jailbroken iOS support was for more than just the Happy Chick app.
  • The included happy chick emulator appears to be good but it does not work on my phone

Reviews around build (4.67 of 5)

  • It does use a much smaller dongle than the Xbox 360 pad, and does feel well built, but doesn't work for the main reason I purchased it (PC use)
  • I bought this because it said it's PC compatible, has a smaller dongle than an Xbox controller, and reviews said it felt well built
  • I don't like the D-
  • Final verdictOverall very well built controller, feels great in the hands and has good platform support
  • This controller is more pricey than others but it is well built and very comfortable to hold (i would dare say better than PS4 controller.

Reviews around design (4.45 of 5)

  • Like the design and doable comfortable feel of the controller
  • Amazing design, excellent materials quality, good price
  • Design is beautiful, works great but bugs a bit with pc, needs more game support for iOS
  • The design is really nice and the quality is pretty good but the wireless functionality is awful.
  • The included phone clip broke easily at the latch the first time I used it, partially due to user error, and partially due to poor design and cheap material.

Reviews around button (3.79 of 5)

  • It has a nice feel in the hands and the buttons are quite responsive
  • The controller feels nice, somewhat similar to a PS4 controller, which is nice, and the buttons feel really good
  • The trigger buttons depress so far that the frame between the button and the trigger makes a sharp edge that digs into the side of your fingertip
  • My only reason that it didn't get five stars is that the directional buttons are too mushy and not clicky like most controllers
  • The ipega wasn't bad necessarily, but the triggers weren't real triggers, merely a cheesy button that was clicked when the trigger was pulled all the way

Reviews around game (3.56 of 5)

  • Works amazingly with most Android games listed as compatible
  • I can't recommend this controller at all for anything other than a slow RTS style game.
  • Not all games will work well with this controller due to being different from the original ps3 controller
  • Any game that supports an XBox controller should have no issue
  • The controller disconnects frequently and misses inputs, making playing any remotely precise game impossible

Reviews around apple (3.37 of 5)

  • I unplugged the controller then plugged it back in, and now it worked as it should
  • Must have been damaged during shipping or the neighborhood mail thief got mad and trashed it as it was not of any value it wanted.
  • I never know whether the controller will work as it is supposed to or if I'm going to have to waste time troubleshooting.
  • Unrelated to this product, Apple likely revoked the happychick app in June 2018 the day after we had figured it out
  • It works as it should and feels just as comfortable as my PS4 controller

Reviews around clasp (3.09 of 5)

  • Also the clasp that holds the phone mount on the controller has weakened considerably.
  • It works as it should and feels just as comfortable as my PS4 controller
  • Must have been damaged during shipping or the neighborhood mail thief got mad and trashed it as it was not of any value it wanted.
  • Pros:-The built in batteries and usb dongle actually function as advertised.-able to connect to pc, android, ios (but not necessarily functional, just able to be recognized via bluetooth)- the four buttons on the right side are backlit so you can see them in the dark- haptic feedback is solid ( it vibrates)- phone clasp actually works and was able to hold samsung note 8 (not securely, but good enough if you are sitting still)Cons:-there were no instructions included.-The website requires an unofficial untrusted apk to be downloaded from a blacklisted website
  • I unplugged the controller then plugged it back in, and now it worked as it should

Reviews around sound (2.69 of 5)

  • I was looking for a controller with a fairly decent and responsive D-pad considering I would be playing classic titles such as Streets of Rage 3 and Breakers Revenge (Neo-Geo) with this
  • I can only recommend this controller to anyone who doesn't care for having a good D-Pad
  • If you want need bluetooh you're most likely getting this for mobile games which don't require a nicer D-pad or buttons
  • However, the R1 and L1 are very slack in their positions and make an annoying rattling sound when the controller vibrates
  • I don't like the D-

  • Works great, there was only one time it lost connection with the tv
  • It does have an intermittent connection from time to time and also will fully lose connection rarely
  • I've read reviews on here of other people having connection issues as well
  • The problem is that the controller will loose connection in about 10 minutes and then will not connect again unless you unplug it and then connect again which causes other problems
  • I have used it with the PS3 but the connection is not stable, I've tried wired and wireless but it disconnects while playing and then reconnect again

Reviews around instruction (1.44 of 5)

  • The instructions were very poor, and customer service is non-existent, but what can you expect with a Chinese product...
  • The geniuses that made it have the WORST instructions on how to connect it to your phone for VR gameplay

  • I follow the instructions to connect it on my Galaxy phone via bluethooth and is "connected" but the control don't work on the game

Reviews around zone (1.18 of 5)

  • Joysticks have a large dead zone which made playing shooter games nearly impossible
  • The controller has a large dead zone and I verified that it wasn't an android software issue as it behaves the same way under Windows 7
  • It is like it has no dead zone
  • The dead zone was shifted to the left significantly so it picked up subtle pushes to the right, but I had to nearly push the left joystick left half way before it picked up
  • I have used controllers that seem to have a dead zone in the center (so it felt like using a d-pad), but this controller feels better.
