SMOS Android smartphone gaming controller

Do you do a whole lot of work on your Android-powered smartphone, or is it more of your primary mobile gaming device? If you happen to get most of your gaming kicks via your Android handset, then perhaps it is time you check out the SMOS. The SMOS is deemed to be the most advanced gaming controller for Android phones and will hopefully change the way you game on your mobile device. While bezels on smartphones have become thinner and thinner with each new model, a touchscreen is still not the best way to enjoy a game since on-screen controls block your view from the action that happens. With the SMOS, all of that is going to change.

Just what kind of gaming bliss will the SMOS bring to your Android-powered handset? For starters, it comes equipped with 18 different configurable keys, a couple of thumbsticks, D-pads, as well as two paddles. Not only that, you will be able to enjoy an array of buttons that will deliver ultimate control no matter the game genre that you love indulging in. This high quality gaming controller is more than capable of handling the latest Android mobile games, and the SMOS hopes that it will be able to provide a similar arcade or high quality console experience.

Boasting of universal game compatibility, the SMOS will work on your Android-powered smartphone without the need for rooting or modifying your handset. In essence, SMOS delivers plug-and-play simplicity so that you may be able to dive into mobile gaming action on the spot. The high quality, precision, mechanical keypad, and control design makes gaming sessions a pleasure, with the thumbsticks boasting of similar quality levels to that of Sony’s PlayStation courtesy of the same ALPS sensor that stars in Sony’s controllers.

As for its buttons, there is advanced circuitry that delivers instant reaction without any dreaded lag time so that you will always be on top of your game. Comfortable, ergonomic, and designed for maximum efficiency, what more can a mobile gamer ask for?
