Featured Review: Moga Pro Controller from PowerA

April 26, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Just last week, PowerA introduced the Moga Pro controller. Which is their second Bluetooth gaming controller for Android devices. I actually have both of them. The original one was smaller and more compact but also a pain to set up and use every time. Moga has fixed that with the Moga Pro. They’ve released the Moga Pivot app in the Play Store. It walks you through setting up the controller for the first time and when you want to use it again, it’s as simple as turning on Bluetooth and allowing it to connect. It’s just that easy.

The Moga Pivot app also has it’s own store of games that work with the Moga controller. The links in the store basically send you to the Play Store, so you’re not buying the game from somewhere else, which is always good. The Moga Pro is a bit more comfortable to hold and use to play games compared to the Moga pocket (the original controller). I’ve been playing Dead Trigger on it off and on all week and it feels really good, it also looks great. Another improvement that PowerA made is they’ve added a stand for you to put your tablet on and play games from your tablet on your Moga Pro controller. I’ve tried it out with the Nexus 7 and Lenovo’s IdeaTab A2107 (review coming soon) and it’s pretty good. It can also hold a 10-inch tablet, confirmed with the Galaxy Note 10.1.

Moga Pro also comes with a USB charge cable, so you won’t have to buy new batteries for it like with the Moga Pocket. All this for just $50. It might seem like it’s a bit expensive, but you’re getting a great treat from PowerA with the Moga Pro. Any gamers out there that love playing Android games but want a controller, this is what you’ve been waiting for.

You can find the Moga Pro over on PowerA’s website for $50. It’s also in stock (at the time of writing this), so it might sell out quickly. How many of you have the original Moga controller? What did you think about it?
