- Solid build
- Good ergonomics
- Multiplatform support
- Support for mobiles (Up to 6 inches)
- Turbo feature (Good for shoot-em-ups)
- Backlit buttons (Can be disabled)
- Slow to charge (2-3 hours) Fast charging would be better
- Can’t take mobile bigger than 6″ I could not use my Xiaomi Mi Max (6.44″) or Zenfone 3 Ultra (6.8″)
The market is flooded with Bluetooth controllers, but this one caught my eye due to its multiplatform support and mostly due to the fact it has a mount that will allow you to support your mobile (Up to 6″) in the in controller itself.
It supports PC controller via BT, and the included 2.4Ghz nano USB receiver if you don’t have Bluetooth on your PC. iOS, PS3 and Android. Charging take around 2-3 hours and it’s good for around 18 hours of gameplay, if you have the light’s on and using games with lots of rumble feedback then that time will be less of course.
The GameSir G3S is comfortable to hold and lightweight. They layout is like an Xbox 360 controller, the buttons have a good feel to them and the D-Pad and analog thumb sticks. The triggers are analog to but don’t have a rumble feature like Xbox one controllers.
I think this is quite a decent controller and mine will get some use mostly as an Android controller and you’ll be seeing it from time to time in my gaming reviews for mobiles and tablets.
