MOGA Pocket Controller: Detailed Review

The Moga Pocket is the smallest Android wireless gamepad we’ve seen to date. The front of the device has a flat look to it and the buttons lie flush with the surface in small recessed sections. The button layout is similar to most Xbox 360 like controllers out there and you get two trigger buttons at the top shoulders of the controller, that have a soft-touch feel to them when pressed. The back of the device is curved and has a rubber finish to it to improve grip. Moga has also included a collapsible phone holder or cradle on the gamepad with two levels of adjustment.

Pairing the MOGA Pocket to an Android device requires you to download and install the MOGA Pivot app which provides a step-by-step process to pair the controller to your smart devices. The app also provides a categorically divided library of supported games and links to download them to your device which is a nice addition. Although support of games outside of this library is also possible, it may not necessarily be uniform. Mapping controls to games mostly happens automatically and you can download third party apps to save control profiles. The Moga Pocket was comfortable to use and worked well with most games, however, if you like to play old school console games on your device using emulators, you’ll be slightly disappointed because of the lack of a D-pad. At the price, it’s a great controller to go for and we recommend it.
