Ideal for Xbox Remote Play, this controller will really feel immediately acquainted to Xbox homeowners, and it even has an Xbox button within the heart, just like the official mannequin. It’s a lot lighter, however there are stable commonplace Xbox buttons, grippy thumbsticks, and a few programmable pushers on the again. The solely disappointment is the mushy D-pad and the shortage of any haptics. The clip design is sensible, with two adjustable joints and a cradle that expands to accommodate most telephones. It even has minimal forked prongs that keep away from the facility or quantity buttons on the facet of your telephone. The connection to your telephone is a alternative of cable or Bluetooth.
With a 3,000-mAh rechargeable battery inside, the Moga XP-5 X boasts lengthy battery life and may even double up as a conveyable battery pack. It costs through a MicroUSB port within the high, and there’s a USB-A port that can be utilized to plug a cable into your telephone’s USB-C port (the provided cable caters to each). Weirdly, there’s no Xbox help, so you may stream Xbox video games out of your console to your telephone with Remote Play, however you may’t play on the Xbox itself with this controller.

★ Upgrade decide: The PowerA Moga XP7-X Plus ($100) affords every part the XP-5 X does however you too can take away the stand within the heart to fit in your telephone (my Pixel 6 Pro matches properly). It is sturdy, affords loads of buttons (solely a screenshot button is lacking), and may wirelessly cost your telephone. But it’s costly, has a MicroUSB port after I’d choose USB-C, and solely a 2,000 mAh battery, so keep on with the XP-5 X except you really need that spring-loaded cradle to suit your telephone in.
