PowerA today announced the MOGA XP7-X Plus, its new gaming controller dedicated to Android phones (and tablets!). This joystick has several differentials that stand out from the competition, including the Razer Kishi V2, launched with a new design and a suggested price of R$ 1,250 in Brazil.
The MOGA XP7-X Plus has a retractable mechanism that allows the fitting of various cell phone models — as long as they do not exceed a height of 18.1 centimeters. The control pairs with devices via Bluetoothso its compatibility goes far beyond the smartphone and embraces gaming on Windows 11 and 10 PC.
Another highlight goes to its “Tabletop Mode”, which uses the removable base of the controller to support the cell phone or tablet on a table, allowing users to play games on different platforms with maximum comfort. PowerA also highlights its ergonomic design that promises gaming for long periods without causing fatigue.
Still in terms of design, the controller not only offers buttons in the “ABXY” pattern and two programmable keys, but also features a configuration totally inspired by the Xbox joystick. The Microsoft console logo is not there by accident — the MOGA XP7-X Plus is compatible with the entire Xbox Cloud Gaming catalog through GamePass.
The accessory has a large 2,000 mAh battery to guarantee its extended autonomy, but charged by Micro USB. There is also an induction charging system that allows you to recharge the smartphone while the user is playing in “Cinematic Mode”, that is, when the cell phone is physically connected with the joystick.
The MOGA XP7-X Plus is now available on PowerA’s official website with suggested price of US$ 99, that is, around R$ 519. For now, there is no forecast of release in regions other than the United States. The price is identical to that charged for the Kishi V2, but Razer’s rival doesn’t deliver dedicated support for tablets or Bluetooth connectivity.
