The original MOGA controller for Android devices may have suffered from a lack of games, but with the MOGA Pro the library of compatible titles has come a long way since then, making this the controller to get for your Android gaming experience (and Windows Phone support is coming soon). PC Mag is pleased that "it plays well with any Android game that either is compatible through the Moga Pivot app or supports manual button mapping," with the only caveat being that "iOS devices can't come along for the ride." And what a ride it will take mobile gamers on, with Laptop Magazine finding "the face buttons gave us strong feedback and stood up against our fevered mashing," with Kotaku agreeing, saying the "buttons and triggers are responsive, the analog sticks smooth and satisfyingly clicky." The MOGA Pro plays good and looks good doing it, which is why PC Mag thinks it may be "the best mobile gaming controller yet."

With a great feel, tons of flexibility, and a new HID mode, the Moga Pro Controller is the best mobile gaming controller yet.

The MOGA Pro controller is an attractive peripheral that makes gaming on an Android device more enjoyable. While a little bulky, it offers quick, responsive console-style controls. Though its price tag of $49 is a little steep for casual users.

Moga Pro is aiming to make something that's easy to set up and easy to start enjoying, which I think is laudable. The controller itself is really comfortable, and well-designed for its niche purpose.

Overall everything about the MOGA Pro makes it a worthy successor to the original. The joysticks are better and smooth, the buttons have the right amount of feel and feedback, and the grip and ergonomics are just excellent.

The MOGA Pro is certainly a worthy successor to its pocketable predecessor -- it's bigger, more comfortable, and more familiar. The price of entry gets you console-style controls for portable gaming, but also a nice controller for the home for Android gaming on your television.

The Moga Pro is a solidly built, comfortable controller. Where the Moga felt a bit constricting and prone to causing hand cramps over long use, the Moga Pro feels as natural as a regular game console controller.

As we played through a few levels of “Dead Trigger,” we immediately noticed the Pro’s solid weight and the ridged, soft-touch grips. Our index fingers wrapped easily around the controller, and the buttons and triggers delivered strong springy feedback.

Overall, the experience of using the Moga Pro is a good one, providing much greater control compared to Android's usual touch screen controls. First-person shooters in particular are dramatically better, and the benefits for a reflex-intensive game like Pac-Man are obvious.

If you're after something larger, then the Moga Pro might be what you're looking for. This is a full-sized Xbox-style controller that gives you a D-pad over the other controls that you get on the Pocket, as well as larger grips for a more comfortable, longer gaming experience.

Loss of portability aside, the Moga Pro bests its predecessor in every way. It's familiar, comfortable and really improves the mobile gaming experience where touchscreen controls tend to be a glass ceiling.

Without question, this wireless gamepad replicates the home console experience, seeing that its control scheme, build quality, and overall feel are nearly identical. Even better, you’ll be able to attach your smartphone to it.

Now, docking a phone into a real controller and playing games on it won’t be for everybody. But for people who love platformers and other core games that use virtual sticks and buttons, the MOGA Pro Controller will feel like a godsend.

The device is one of many that will enable you to enjoy free-to-play Android games with a traditional console-style controller, rather than the touchscreen on your smartphone or tablet.

The only real issue that stands in front of both MOGA peripherals at this point is support. Android is there and the games list continues to grow. Windows Phone 8 developers can now code their games to play nice with MOGA as well. This is still a very new development, however.

-This one is a must-have for game addicts . The problem is that there are no good games available for it except a few like Modern Combat 4 and Shadowgun: Deadzone. -The Moga Pivot app is sometimes troublesome as it won't always connect to the the controller even though the controller is in...

This controller is one of the best thing i've got for my HTC Droid DNA. Playing emulators are a breeze and games like Asphalt 8 are a joy to play. The device claw is tight and gives you the confidence that you can game as hard as you'd like without risking your device slipping loose. Oh and...
