Play some awesome Xbox Game Pass games with these controllers

If you’ve chosen the Xbox One controller, we strongly recommend using a clip to mount your phone to the controller. It just makes gaming more convenient and comfortable. For that purpose, our clip recommendation is the aptly named PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip. It just clips onto your Xbox One controller and then attaches your phone. From there, adjust the angle to your desired position, and you’re good to go.

You have plenty of options for finding the best controllers for Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass launching cloud gaming for Android is a big deal, and we’re pretty excited about it. However, one of Microsoft’s key requirements to play Game Pass games on your device is that you’ll need an external controller since only a couple of games include a touch input layer. So for that purpose, our top pick is the Razer Kishi. It’s a versatile beast and a true joy to use.

Following that up, if you want something that won’t cost you a ton, then the 8BitDo SN30 Pro is for you. Whether you like retro styling or not, it’s still the best value on this list. Not only does the controller pair over Bluetooth, but it includes a clip to hold your phone while you play.

Finally, it’s hard to go wrong with the Xbox Core controller and a clip, but we think the PowerA MOGA XP5-X Plus is the better option. Not only do you get the same ergonomics and feel, but you get a clip included and a 3,000mAh power bank. For its price, it’s a noticeably better deal versus the standard Xbox One controller. Regardless, it’s hard to make a bad choice here.

But that’s not the case, as the DualSense pairs up with your phone just like any other Bluetooth controller. You just might need to make sure that the buttons are configured properly before jumping in.
