First Look: Moga Bluetooth Controller revs up Android gaming

2:06 /

Slot in your smartphone, load up a game, and use the mini joysticks, buttons, and triggers to surge, swoop, and spin.

-Hey everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET coming at you from Mobile Con 2012 in San Diego. I have in my hands the Moga Bluetooth controller. Now this is a gaming accessory right now it's here with the Samsung Galaxy Note II for T Mobile. T Mobile is gonna be selling this controller at stores. So it's just a fun little add on that you can get to help you play games on your phone. The reason you might want this is because phones like the Galaxy Note II are now coming with Quad-Core processors and so they're going to emphasize gaming more than ever before. So we're gonna start to see a lot more accessories like this popping. Full disclosure is that I'm not a gamer, I'm not even really a casual gamer but I am an excellent driver. So, I'm gonna demo this a little bit. Now, this is Need for Speed, it's a car game. Like I said I'm an excellent driver. So the controls right now to my unpracticed hands, they feel pretty good, they're sliding really easily. There are a lot of buttons here, there's a joystick that kind of pops out and you're able to pause the game or keep on playing. There are some other buttons as well. It's very comfortable to hold in the hand, feels very natural, very grippable as well. There's a latch here to help keep your phone in place, keep it from sliding around and then we turn the controller around, we see that it's also Adjustable so it fits multiple phones. There's also these left and right buttons here that you're able to, it's just very easily and comfortably use for games that optimized with these extras. So, it's about this nice ribs surface as well and that's gonna help a lot with grip. So overall, it looks pretty good but we'll, of course have to put it to the test with a very practiced serious gamer over here at CNET. I'm Jessica Dolcourt, this is the Moga Bluetooth Controller that will sold at T Mobile stores.
