Android Gaming Controller: Lenovo Vs. Indiegogo
« on: March 01, 2017, 02:46:24 pm »
Hi all, this seems promising, although I haven't heard much about either. With April Fools being so far away, I doubt it's a joke, so it's all official. Seems that there is a controller being made on INDIEGOGO for the MOTO Z, but then LENOVO went ahead and made a controller of their own for the MOTO Z.

The guys behind the INDIEGOGO seems official, and their isn't much information regarding the LENOVO controller.

This would be awesome if they released, since the controller for both is more of a leave-on case, rather than an attachment like MOGA, basically giving us a gaming phone.

I have a link to the INDIEGOGO page posted below. It speaks of the INDIEGOGO project, and the LENOVO GAMEPAD CASE.

Anyone have any thoughts, or further information regarding these?

Lol, that looks shit, especially the 'trigger' buttons on the back.
I'd rather get the the one that Motorola has shown off (still in prototype stages and as you mentioned, made by Lenovo exclusively for Motorola Z phones).



You see, the one (shown in the image above) will at least snap into the sides just like the Nintendo Switch JoyCon (controllers), which makes it look good, unlike the ugly IGG one they're making.

Also, what's wrong with you posting a link, would never be against forum rules to post IGG links.

Yeah, I do have to agree, while I have much respect for the IGG controller. Between the two, I rather the Motorola one, which kinda resembles the more traditional portable gaming handheld when connected.

I wish IGG the best. The more of these types of devices the better. It would be good if other companies would get on board and make these types of add-ons for their phones, in which the attachment can stay on the phone, and the phone still be used normally if wanted.

I also saw a moto mod gamepad in the shape of a nintendo DS clam-shell design

here it is on IGG https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/game-z-gamepad-for-moto-z#/

I dont want to get to excited but we have at least 2 prototypes and one confirmed by lenovo, all seem to add extra battery too which is nice

I really prefer the Indiegogo Foldable gamepad, like my beloved xperia play.

I'm loving the love IGG is giving the MOTO Z with these gamepad mods. Everyone has their own style. Personally, I'm looking for something like the Bladepad, or Razer casings, basically slide out like Xperia play. I think a thicker device is easier to carry than a longer one, since I currently use the W3D as a daily driver, and you need big pockets.

The Xperia Play was thick, but it would get lost in my pocket sometimes. Probably due to the screen size, but I think 5 or even 5.5 inches, with Xperia play thickness wouldn't be bad, since most people have cases, like otterbox, on their phones, it's probably a better sacrifice to make, and the expectation of anyone considering a gaming controller add-on to their device would expect a little extra size.

What do you all think is better, slide, or side?

You guys probably already know about this, but I haven't seen a post about it, so I figured I'd post this as well. Seems the Moto Play is getting more love from Indiegogo. It's good for us W3D users, that want their phone and smartphone as one. Here's another mod, which is similar to another one on Indiegogo, but this one seems a lot less bulky.
