GameSir controller. The S23 Ultra with a rugged case barely fits, but is still very playable!

Wow, that came out very dark. :(

I too have a gamsir. Fits, just barely, with a spigen neo hybrid case. Although the flat top/bottom of the phone don't get positively "retained" by the rubber nubs on the gamesir. So while it is held, it could wiggle out with enough flexing during a heavy gaming session.

That said, my usual game setup is with the phone connected to the TV with a usbc dongle.

Yeah, I did a little playing with the GameSir and the phone came out once, so it is barely held in.

The Moga X-5 though, champ!!

Just for S**TS and Giggles, I tried something a friend mentioned in passing and I'll be damn, it worked!!

A while back, Amazon sent me a couple Luna Controllers as I was accepted into the Early Access Testing.

When they sent me my controllers, they also sent with each controller a Made For Amazon Phone Clip, for Luna Controller (https://www.amazon.com/Made-Amazon-...ag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU7138962).

These are still available for $14.99 each.

The nice thing about these is that they not only fit the Luna Controllers, but they also fit XBox One controllers!!!

This is what it looks like on my XBox Elite Pro Series 2 Controller next to my Moga X-5 controller:

This is the same clip on the Luna Controller:

So, if you already have an XBox One Controller, this is a pretty inexpensive way to get a phone mount for it that will fit! :D

I love gaming on my phone because of the portability.

Now, with the S23 Ultra, I can go back to my original setup.

I have the original MOGA X-5 controller (https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...s%2Fmobile-gaming%2Fmoga-xp5-x&token=LBDqqSCN) pairs with my S23 Ultra and it's amazing playing locally and via Cloud Gaming with XBox Gamepass Ultimate...

Anyone else with a gaming setup?

I grabbed a pair of those when they were $15 on black Friday and gave them out as prizes at my son's boy scout electronics campout. They were big hits.

They also have slightly larger versions that also have thumbsticks, which I would like to try out, but I don't need.

Yeah, 8bitdo has a few controller variations. I was hesitant to buy this one because of the size, but after using it for my games, it has been an absolute must to carry around daily... To be honest, this with my Fold is my favorite combination

Small phone screens strain my eyes after a while and make them hurt. I game on a PC with a 42" 120Hz LG C2 4K Oled on my desktop and I can look at this screen all day and not feel any eye fatigue.
