Let me start by getting one thing clear: yes the pairing process like other reviewer says is a headache. Instructions in the booklet for pairing are wont work as is. What other reviews didn't mention is how did they manage to pair finally. So the book says to pair android phone you need to press B and then home button to power on in android mode. But this doesnt power on in pairing mode. To enter pairing mode, press B and Home button simultaneously until the android light starts flashing rapidly.
Ok now that is out of the way, you will understand why I gave this a 5 star review once you use it. This definitely looks a high end product. Right from the point of packaging to the finish of the controller itself, nothing looks cheap. Package contains an instruction booklet, controller, phone mount, two micro usb cables. The guide says that the controller has a vibration motor but I haven't come across the game that uses it yet. Apart from that, the feel of the buttons is good. Along with the weight distrubution. If you have PS or xbox you will find this familiar. And best part is even from games perspective the controls are kind of similar. For instance, I used this for playing FIFA 16 and the controls are exactly the same as on my xbox. I have tried this with couple of action games and works with them as well. Haven't played any racing games but I get a feeling that most of the famous titles will work just fine.
The main reason I bought this was for Gear VR and let me tell you this, it is a totally different experience playing on Gear VR with controller. It is a very seamless experience. Once you have this controller, you won't be playing a game without it!!!
