We already know the manufacturer AUKEY from numerous electronics accessories, power banks and headphones. Now the manufacturer has brought a wireless Gamepad to the market, what the controller can do and how great the compatibility is, you get to our test.
The controller of AUKEY is about 185 grams light and completely made of plastic. Inspiration for the design, AUKEY apparently seems to have brought the Xbox 360 Controller, in my opinion a wise decision. Not only has the ergonomic design of the Xbox Controller proven for many years to the console, it is also very popular among many PC players. Similar to the great example, the wireless gamepad is also very high-quality built-in and even after a few hours of play I do not notice loose buttons. The key layout, as you can see in the pictures, is the same as the controller from Microsoft. In addition to two trigger and shoulder buttons, two analog sticks,
On the back of the gamepad there is also a MicroUSB port, which can also be used to charge the device.
There are two different modes , between which one can switch by pushing on the Home Button, compatibility with many different devices is possible. If you select the Android mode , you can connect the gamepad with all Android devices with Android 4.0 or higher. In the XINPUT mode the gamepad can be used wonderfully on the PC. AUKEY himself writes that their controller is neither compatible with Mac OS nor with the consoles of the last and current generation. A pity here the controller could have made plus points, but who has a game console anyway, probably already has the right gamepad ready.
The AUKEY Wireless Gamepad is connected via a small USB 2.4GHz receiver which can either be plugged in directly or via the supplied OTG cable .
In addition to the OTG cable, the controller also has a charging cable, the 2.4 GHz Nano receiver, a user manual and an AUKEY warranty card.
The AUKEY Wireless Gamepad has left a very good impression with me, the device is very well processed and is very high quality in the hand. Especially when using the PC in combination with the Steam Big Picture Mode, the whole thank you “Plug’n’Play” went very fast and easy. It’s a pity that you can not connect the gamepad to your Xbox or to the Playstation. Also a Bluetooth function would not be bad, especially since the OTG cable on the mobile phone can be really annoying. All in all, the controller is really good and who is still looking for a high-quality gamepad for the PC, should be found here.
However, if you are looking for something more favorable or want to gamble over Bluetooth, you should take a look at the MOCUTE controller.
