This one’s for the Android and Windows Phone gamers. This accessory basically turns your phone into a handy-dandy handheld gaming device, kinda like the Nintendo Switch. It feels and holds just like a console controller, ensuring familiarity and ease of control while playing. I really recommend this when playing adventure games, but any mobile game would be perfect for this accessory!

For all the FPS players out there: if you’re looking to be a top mobile FPS gamer without the hassle of large cell phone gaming accessories, then this little bad boy is for you. These are basically small, clippable buttons that you just buckle on your phone, then customize the in-game controls in such a way that your preferred button “taps” that control! Say you can have the aim on sights action on the left, and the shoot action on the right! It supports up to 4 buttons.
Who knew that a small, plastic button can change so much of your gameplay?

Another of the “simple is better” cell phone gaming accessories, this little plastic is perfectly suited for games that require movement, again, like first person shooters. But this one is more suited for MOBA games, examples are Mobile Legends, Vainglory, Arena of Valor, among others. This one basically gives you a joystick for your phone, allowing you to make smoother movement, and not allowing your thumb from slipping away, especially when you’re in the thick of a teamfight and your thumb suddenly slips for whatever reason, causing you to lose. That’s a heartbreaker right there.

The joystick can be fixed on any mobile phone and tablet PC surface, has excellent sticking ability, and will not scratch the touch screen. It can be easily removed without leaving any scratches or residue and is extremely durable.
