"Brilliant, But Not For Everyone"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have bought a lot of mobile phone controllers looking for one that feels good. This is the one. I love this controller. It's a premium product that just feels good. The thumbsticks have nice textured grips with tight deadzones. The different configurations make it highly versatile and it folds up nicely for portability. Some online reviews have complained about it breaking or being flimsy – I have not experienced this with my one. The controller does lose points in a couple of areas though. The tablet holder can't hold anything bigger than 7", which is basically as small as a tablet can get without being a phone. If it went an inch or 2 bigger, it'd be great (that's what she said). Even then though, the tablet holder doesn't fold up to become as portable as the rest of the controller, which makes it kinda impractical unless you just want to use it around the house. Another issue is that the GameSmart clips for the keyboard and ‘brain’ attachments are difficult to disconnect, to the point that I was scared I was going to bust the controller pulling it apart. I can see how other people have damaged their controllers. Very nerve-wracking. The mobile phone cradle is great, but attaches via a screw- Which feels unnecessarily dated. But, as I said, even with these faults I love the controller. I mostly use it with the keyboard attachment on my tablet, but it is easily the best mobile phone controller I've used. The iPega 9087 Red Knight is the second best, and at only $30, it may seem difficult to justify the price jump to the Lynx 9. The Lynx feels like an artistic prototype tech demo brought to life though. You're not just getting a good controller – you're getting something that was too beautiful for this world and will no longer exist once stock runs out, since they don't make it, or anything like it, anymore. I wouldn't have paid full price for this controller when it first came out, since it went for $400–500AUD (:O). But at $100–150 clearance prices, it's a pretty little piece of gaming history with a great deal of function for any mobile gamer.

Description

Your Way to Play

You no longer need a gaming console to get an authentic gaming experience. LYNX 9 is like an all-access pass to the premium gaming content on your Android smart devices. Play on a smartphone during your daily commute, a tablet during your lunch break, and even on your HDTV when you get home. With more features than a full-size gamepad but less than half the bulk, LYNX 9 fits in your pocket and plays everywhere you do.

Simply Better Than Touch

Touch controls have their place, but let's face it, they just don't cut it for core games. Ever tried to play an FPS using touch controls? How about a platformer? A mistimed jump caused by your thumb drifting away from virtual buttons spells instant death. Good luck with that! LYNX 9 solves all of this by supplying you with controls you can actually feel. And, certain titles even know when you're using a controller and will remove touch controls from your screen.
