The Moga guys have been developing remotes that can adapt itself to our smartphones and tablets and this way the game experience it’s even better.
Now they decided to improve even more and because of that they released the Moga Pro. This remote was the winner for best Hardware at E3.
This is a remote that connects to our devices with bluetooth and comes prepared to work with android smartphones and tablets that have an equal or higher version of Android 2.3.
Inside de Moga Pro box besides the remote itself we can find several accessories that could be very useful for any gamer. Besides the manual of instructions (useful for the first synchronization with our device) inside the box we can find a tablet holder and a cable to charge the device.
The Moga Pro adapts to our hands but the game consoles users are used to this kind of remote. This comes equipped with an internal battery that can offer several hours of game.
To hold our smartphone the remote have incorporated an expandable arm that hold the smartphone instead of us while we are playing keeping our hands free to win all games. If we are playing in a tablet Moga decided to incorporate an accessory to this. Although initially it seems a little bit fragile the truth it’s that this accessory worked perfectly during our tests.
The Moga Pro syncronizes with our devices with bluetooth what avoid the use of cables. Besides that with a button on the center of the remote it’s possible to change between user profiles (at most two) which really eases the configuration between the different games.
After the initial configuration where we are forced to install a Moga application (Moga Pivot) this introduce us a game list that already works with the remote. Yes, that already work with the remote. This is the big limitation of this kind of devices for the android devices: the lack of games that are capable of accepting a remote to play. Despite of the several games already available at stores the most certain it’s having applications that don’t work with the remote or ones that do work but very limitedly.
Over the times games developers have been noticing that the android users are very interested in syncronize their PlayStation remotes (or others) with their devices so they can enjoy even more the game experience. And this could be an open door for Moga Pro like for another android remotes on the market. The games developers by thinking in this kind of users have been worry in introducing HID profiles in their games so the remotes can work.
However if you really want to have a Moga Pro and play Fifa14 on your smartphone or tablet (yes, this is one of the games that don’t work) that it’s possible. For that you will have to make Root and install third-part apps so the games can work with the remote. So not all it’s bad you just have to have some courage and giving up of your android device warranty.
The Moga Pro it’s a good remote with internal battery and that it’s capable of offering several hours of games to their users. At this moment it’s a little bit limited due to the lack of compatible games. However and due to the eye opening of the games developers we believe that this kind of devices will be very important because of the number of gamers that are starting to leave their portable consoles and adhere to the mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
For the gamers that don’t have afraid of making Root to their devices the Moga Pro will be the right device to add to your gadgets list. A good design, a good remote, a great improvement for your games!
