·         Excellent battery live (had it for about 2 weeks and only charged it twice….
·         Super compatible (got it to work one way or another with every emulator I tried. Also worked with most games I tried as well. )
·         Does not require root
·         Easy set up

·         Price should be like $19.99 
·         Only 1 color but Red and black isn’t that bad
·         Game mode only works some games and one emulator I tried. The rest you have to go through the process of mapping buttons in Keyboard Mode
·         Doesn’t work with all games
·         No Haptic Feedback
·         Compatibility issues with “GameLoft” Games

My Thoughts:
There isn’t much for me to say…. Honestly if you like Gaming and have an Android Phone or Tablet, Buy this…. It has its issues like with GameLoft games. I can’t believe I waited so long to get one of these. I highly recommend this.
