How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Moga is a cheap and easy way to add standard gaming controls to an Android phone. And, while it won't work with every game (or every phone), when it does work, it could give you an edge in certain games that just don't work well on a touchscreen. Consumer Reports calls it a "a big step up up from touch-screen controls," and lauds its "simplicity of setup" and "solid design." IGN also likes the Moga, and points out that "while all of the buttons are small and compact, they don't feel cheap and they respond quickly with a satisfying click." However, the Moga isn't perfect; Time was disappointed that it didn't support more games, and also found that it could "block access to your phone's volume controls."
