Ipega PG-9025 Controller Review

A Controller For Mobile Gaming





I always wondered how cheaper bluetooth controllers would turn out to work with my mobile devices. Then I decided to order the Ipega PG-9025 bluetooth controller and try it out. The packaging is simple, see through plastic that you usually find in stores. The box includes the controller, instructions and a USB cable for charging.

This controller can hold devices up to 5.5 inches with the extendible clip. The analog sticks are very similar to the Xbox 360 controller. Everything feels solid when you are using the controller, however it is very light and that makes it feel not so premium. I personally like the matte finish but in time it will probably attract a lot of fingerprints. The design is quite minimal and the controller feels comfortable to use and play games with, even for long periods of time. The only thing I haven't got used to yet are the triggers on the back. Their placement makes it easy to press them when you do not intend to.

I found pairing the controller to be super easy, and the process needs to be done only once. After that just turn on bluetooth on your phone or tablet and press home on your controller. This controller works perfectly with android and iOS devices (I have tested it with an iphone 4s, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2012 and Nexus 7 2013). The controller also works with emulators and games that are compatible with gamepads (you may need to assign functions from within the game).

This controller is small enough to feel comfortable and carry around at the same time. The quality may not be as premium as other gamepads out there but keep in mind how much you paid for it. Overall I would recommend buying the Ipega PG-9025 if you are looking for something affordable and with a good design.
