    (Nyko)

    Android gamers who prefer to play with a controller should definitely check out the Nyko Playpad Pro. This gaming peripheral works with any Android device with Bluetooth capability, provided it runs at least Android 3.0, so it should work just fine with the new Nexus line, and any other relatively new Android devices you’ve got kicking around. That being said, there may be some unexpected bugs at first as Nyko works out the kinks with Android L devices.

    Packed with plenty of buttons to accommodate all kinds of game types, this ergonomic controller will appeal to fans of button mashers, retro games, and today’s action-packed hits. The Playpad Pro is a great accessory for anyone who feels limited by touchscreen controls during their extended gaming sessions on a tablet.

    Buy it here.


    Pros:
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Works with multiple Android device types (any Android 3.0 device or higher with Bluetooth)
  • Optimized HID protocol for Tegra 3 based devices and games
  • Includes Nyko’s free Playground app for customization
  • Wireless

  • Cons:
  • Compatible with hundreds of titles, but thousands would be more impressive
  • Firmware issues make this controller problematic for Windows 8.1 tablets, if you happen to have one of those as well
  • Some user reviews complain that pairing with devices doesn’t always go smoothly
  • Game compatibility may be affected depending on where you purchased your games (Google Play or Amazon)
  • Sticky buttons
