The iPega PG-9052 and iPega PG-9053 are the latest Bluetooth gamepads in company’s controller range.
Both offer compatibility with a variety of Bluetooth devices such as Android phones, iOS and Windows devices.
They also feature a built-in 300mAh lithium battery and telescopic stand which can hold smartphones with a screensize up to 6-inches.
However, with drastically different form-factors, each targets a different use case.
I’m a big fan of the company’s products, having used them for a number of years. In my recent iPega PG-9025 review, I found the controller had solid build quality and excellent compatibility, so I’m expecting the new controllers to maintain the status quo.
iPega PG-9052 Bluetooth Controller
The iPega PG-9052 is a compact controller much like the incredibly popular iPega PG-9017. Armed with a 300mAh lithium battery that is said to last 20 hours of use, the controller manages to pack in two analog joysticks, d-pad, 4 face buttons, 4 shoulder buttons, start and select buttons in addition to a phone holder that should fit a 6-inch phone.
iPega PG-9053 Bluetooth Controller
The iPega PG-9053 clearly targets the “hardcore” market, much like MOGA’s Pro controller range. The PG-9053 fits in the same buttons as the PG-9052 into a larger frame that should be more comfortable for extended gaming sessions.
