The Best Razer Controllers for Mobile


Best Razer Controller for mobile

Ever since they burst onto the scene in 2005, Razer has gone from strength to strength. They did more than just create premium gaming peripherals, they created an entire gaming lifestyle based around their products, and it’s no wonder that they’re starting to do the same on mobile.

Even though I try to recommend more entry-level controllers for beginners, the Razer line of mobile gaming controllers is the perfect upgrade for anybody looking to take full advantage of all the latest tech coming to mobile, including the increasingly popular Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Yes, it’s true. We are living in a world where you can take your console gaming experience on the go and it’s never been easier to get in on the ground floor with your standard Xbox One Controller but, if you’re like me, you’re not going to want to take your daily driver on the road with you but you still want the same quality you get at home.

That’s exactly where Razer falls in and so today we’re going to take a closer look at what exactly razer has on offer and whether they match up in style and quality to all the keyboards and mice that Razer has become known for. So, without further ado, here are the best Razer controllers for mobile.

BEST RAZER

MOBILE GAMING CONTROLLERS

 

Razer KISHI

 

Model: Kishi

Type: Telescopic Controller

Price: $99.99

Operating System: Android & iOS

Best Place To Buy: Amazon

 

While anybody can simply connect an original Xbox One/Core controller to a smartphone via Bluetooth, it’s not always the ideal way to play since being on the move doesn’t exactly leave you with a lot of options when you need to stand your screen. That’s where the Kishi’s telescopic design comes into play

Telescopic controllers have the unique ability to wrap around your device and make it all one complete unit that resembles the ever-popular Nintendo Switch. Plus, with a direct lightning port or USB-Type C connection that plugs directly into your device, this controller will stay powered up for as long as your phone is charged and virtually eliminate input lag entirely.

The analog sticks strongly resemble the ones you find on the standard Xbox One controller and your fingers will feel right at home if you’ve been accustomed to their design all this time. Just make sure you have a device that fits the very specific dimensions due to the rounded edges that grip your device.

So, if you’ve got the right device, you can’t go wrong with this industry leader and you’ll be treated to the exact same premium console experience as long as you’re close enough to WiFi. And, if you’re close enough to a charging port as well, you can keep playing uninterrupted as you can still charge your device while the controller is connected.

Razer RAIJU Mobile

 

Model: Raiju Mobile

Type: Standard

Price: $59.99

Operating System: Android & PC

Best Place To Buy: Amazon

 

Now, there are those of us that still prefer the standard controller design above all else ( including your truly), we have the incredible Razer Raiu Mobile. It was only a matter of time before they made one of their flagship controllers available to the mobile market and I’m glad they went with the Raiju model first.

There’s a reason why the original Raiju was labeled a “tournament” controller because it was designed with the clear intention of giving you a significant competitive edge. Not only with the innovative mechanical action buttons but the ergonomic design that it boasts.

There are four multi-function buttons located on the back, just like the paddles on a SCUF controller, and two extra buttons next to the left and right bumpers giving you full control whenever you need it. Plus, it already has a phone clip built-in which truly takes the portability to the next level.

So for Android users that want a completely identical console experience on mobile with a top-of-the-range controller, you can’t go wrong with the Raiju mobile. It even has a direct connection via USB Type-C which will virtually eliminate input lag on hardcore first-person-shooters like Call of Duty: Mobile.

Razer JUNGLECAT

Model: Jungle Cat

Type: Modular

Price: $99.99

Operating System:

Best Place To Buy: Amazon

For those that think they would get along better with a controller that has more hybrid functionality, then look no further than the Razer Junglecat. It’s one of the few controllers designed to be completely functional as both a standard and telescopic controller all in one product.

When used separately from your phone, the controller has a unique design unlike any other standard controller with the analog sticks being above the action buttons instead of underneath and it’s a lot smaller than a standard controller which could be an uncomfortable adjustment to new players.

The Junglecat has a unique feature that allows each half of the controller to disconnect and be used independently as a regular Nintendo Switch JoyCon but this of course means that you need the specific case that they’ve designed for your phone. And, with the limited sizes available, the full docking functionality won’t be as accessible to everyone.

So unless you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S10+, or the Razer Phone 2, you’ll be limited to using the controller separate from your phone which makes it a lot less portable for the everyday consumer and, ultimately, makes the least desirable Razer mobile gaming controller.

Amazon Rating:
4.1/5

Conclusion

Razer has proven time and time again that they are the industry leaders in gaming peripherals and have excelled at creating a lifestyle brand that gamers of all ages can get behind and support. So it’s great to finally see them making their stamp on the mobile market as well.

So whether you’re into the telescopic design, the standard controller, or think you’ve got the right device for the unique hybrid design of the Junglecat, Razer has the controller for you. So join the razer lifestyle and take your mobile gaming experience to the next level.

    Thank you for this detailed article 

    I don’t like playing on my phone just because I feel that playing with controllers is better but now that I found your article I will definitely get the Razer JUNGLECAT because it makes your phone looks like a PSP and I used to love that thing!

    Thanks again for sharing this and have a great day!

      No problem, Mariem.

      The PSP was a great system back in the day. It’s crazy that all those games can be emulated right from your smartphone. You should definitely give it a try.

    Hey thanks for this article, I wasn’t aware their were such a thing as razor controllers, I mean I knew there were controllers as such but didn’t know it can be used with other devices. The Nintendo switch console has been my favourite due to the controller as well as other features.

    I really like the kishi razor due to it resembling controller of a switch. Though the price seems high, I think it is totally worth it.

    1. StevieMAX says:

      It really does resemble the switch and is the best value when considering an alternative to the Nintendo platform.

      Thanks for stopping by, Sariyah.
