I tend to shy away from a small controller. I don't have especially large hands but as I age I much prefer something with good ergonomics. Although this one is indeed very compact (see photo for comparison to others), it does work surprisingly well and without too much fatigue.
Visual Style: I think the look is great. Honestly, that is the main reason I picked it up. Very cool aesthetic overall. Even the glowing status buttons below kind of look like they are part of the motif.
Build Quality: Very good. The metal back is sturdy and feels nice to hold in the way that it is geometrically rounded outward. The buttons themselves have a good response not dissimilar to a switch joycon. The joysticks are reminiscent as well, with a good amount of travel without being too slim. The big variance is that both shoulder buttons are mounted inline. This might be a bit cumbersome depending on the game, but in my experience I was able to navigate this change in orientation without much issue.
Rumble Grumble: I don't care for tiny rumbles in controllers and this one isn't much different. It works in that it makes a buzz when prompted but doesn't communicate much nuance. I was not unable to get the settings to adjust according to the manual (should be 4 levels) so it felt pretty harsh. If I could tone it down (maybe a firmware issue?) that might solve the issue for me. Truth be told, on a controller like this, I would just as soon turn it off altogether.
Connectivity: This works well across the board. I have used it with an iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, FireTV, PC, Switch, and a Steam Deck. Suffice to say, it works as intended on all devices with the exception of rumble not functioning on the IOS devices for some reason. The pairing process is easy enough just make sure to properly press the right combination of the pairing button, and the face button. The instructions do a good job of detailing how to appropriate pair depending on device type.
Inputs: So far, I haven't encountered any notable drift of phantom inputs. I would prefer a more traditional D-Pad but I also won't penalize them for that choice. As a D-PAD for menus and basic navigation, this one works just fine.
Firmware Updates: Haven't had to do this yet but I did take a gander at the firmware update app on IOS. It very seamlessly detected my controller and checked for new firmware. Nice to know that if there are any issues, an update won't be hard to come by.
Turbo Function: I tested turning this on, and it works. Kind of cumbersome to deactivate (see the manual). Personally, I have no use for it but if you do, it's there.
Accessories: Comes with a nice little semi-hard shell carrying case, a USB-C cable for charging and connectivity, and a pretty good little manual.
Long story slightly longer: This is actually a pretty decent little controller. Well build, portable, versatile, and stylish. If I ended up having to use it as a last resort for a round of mario kart, I wouldn't be upset. And, for the level of build quality, I think the value isn't too bad either (about $33 as of this review).
I was surprised by how slim and compact this controller is. The buttons all feel really good, and the analog sticks are surprisingly comfortable (and come with bonus grip-covers) and very responsive. It's easy to pair, and charges via USB-C. The build quality is excellent. The bottom is metal, and feels really sturdy and durable. It's slightly heavier than you'd expect.
If you have larger hands, it may be a little too small, but I found it relatively comfortable for casual gaming. It's certainly very portable, as it's slim enough to fit in a pocket. It also uses the four-button arrangement instead of a proper d-pad, so for fighting games it's not my top choice.
Bottom line: It's a good, compact, very solid controller that can travel with you and still gives you all the buttons and sticks you want. Five stars.
This is an Amazon Vine review of the PB Tails metal Bluetooth gamepad (Knight Warrior)
This controller is honestly pretty cool, it’s well built, and its small size makes it easy to bring along on road trips. It takes a little getting used to for an adult like myself, since my hands are a little too big for this controller, but once you get used to it, it’s honestly not that bad. The controller syncs to the switch very easily which is always a plus as well. I didn’t try to pair it with my PC, but I’ve never had issues doing that with any controller, so I assume it works fine. The thumb stick covers were a nice addition, I do usually use these covers in hopes of prolonging the life of my controllers (the thumb sticks always seem to be the first to go for me). I actually appreciate the layout of the shoulder buttons, it works well with this type of smaller controller. The controller does seem to be well built as well, it’s not heavy or anything (even though it is metal on the back), for some reason playing with this controller gives me a nostalgic feel of the older, more “blocky” game controllers, but I don’t mind it! All in all, I like the controller, and if nothing else, its perfectly sized for my son!
This is a nice cool looking retro Controller. It feels comfortable in my hand. It was easy to set up and the vibration function works well. It is very light weight and has a nice feel to it. The buttons are not sticky at all and there is no lag when playing. The connection to the switch was fast and easy. The carry case is nice and cool looking. It comes in handy when travelling.I will definitely need another one for my PC.
Nothing in the seller description really prepared me to discover how small and svelte this controller is.Not only are the hard angles and colour scheme inspired by an NES controller, it is actually as wide and thick as an NES controller too! (see photos).This would be a great "pro controller" to take with you while traveling, it easily fits into the accessories portion of my Nintendo Switch carry case.My partner, who is not a gamer and, never remarks on my dozens of video game controllers, saw this one sitting on the table today and said "Wow is that the new one? It looks interesting!"It's an impressive display of technology considering this tiny wireless controller has a full-set of buttons, twin analog sticks, motion-controls, and non-HD rumble motors. The only thing missing is NFC (amiibo) functionality.The bluetooth connection is strong and very effective, with no dropped inputs during my testing. I think it is a better wireless connection than official Nintendo Joycons.How it this tiny thing ergonomically? Not bad actually!I played with this controller for 5 hours straight today, trying out many different games, and even though it is a very cozy fit for two hands, the 135 degree angles don't bite into your palms like the 90 degree corners of an NES controller.Your fingers rest naturally on the L/R trigger sets, and your thumbs feel at home either on the d-pad or analog sticks.If you're coming from an official Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, the +, -, Home, and Screenshot buttons are all exactly where you would normally reach for them.I really like the subtle white LEDs for the connection indicator lights, and I appreciate the symmetry of the design.I've been looking for a small controller like this for a long time - something with the small, clicky and rapid buttons of a Joycon, but in the "playstation arrangement" with the analog sticks side-by-side.The only thing I would change is to substitute 4 buttons instead of a d-pad, like on a Joycon.If they offered the option of 4 buttons instead of a d-pad, this would be the perfect controller for rhythm games like MUSYNX or Xonic: Superbeat.The rumble functionality is very strong, and LOUD on the higher settings. There are four settings for rumble strength (Off, low, medium, high) but low is the only good setting imo.Unfortunately the controller does not remember your rumble setting after it powers off. The default setting is medium.Changing it to low by pressing "Turbo" and "-" is easy enough, but annoying to do it after every snack break when the controller decides to disconnect for power saving.So how does it play games? Unfortunately it is a mixed result. I'll break these down by genre:RHYTHM GAMES: Fantastic controller for rhythm games like MUSYNX, Pianista, and Xonic. I set lots of new high scores!!First reason is due to the solid wireless connection that doesn't drop the rapid inputs these games require.Second reason is that the travel of the buttons is very quick and precise, plus the distance between the buttons and analog sticks (for Xonic) is absolutely minimized by the small size of the controller.Third is that the buttons are so small, it is very easy to hit a combo X/A and Left/Up with one thumb when those commands are necessary in MUSYNX or Pianista.As I mentioned above the only thing I would prefer is that the d-pad would be 4 buttons instead of a d-pad, specifically for the benefit of these types of games.2D PLATFORMERS: I know the first impression a lot of people will get when they look at this controller is that it looks great for NES and SNES games, or any other 2D game. Unfortunately, the weakest aspect of this controller is the D-pad, and it's a deal breaker.While it works OK for discrete one-off clicky inputs like scrolling a menu in an RPG or playing a rhythm game, it has a severe problem with what I'll call "stickiness" while holding down in one direction.As an example, while playing Super Mario World or Super Mario Bros, it is very difficult to stop running right and make a quick turn to the left to avoid danger. What usually happens is that your right-input keeps going for a 1/2 second longer than you wanted before the d-pad finally "unsticks" and registers the left-input. This 1/2 second delay will kill you many times, and further corrections don't get any easier.2D FIGHTERS: Another great test of a D-pad is a bit of Street Fighter.Once again, because of the stickiness mentioned in the 2D platformer section, quarter-circles and half-circles are nearly impossible to execute. Especially because the down-direction of my d-pad is even stickier than left or right.I'll be furiously trying to do a forward-right quarter-circle, but my character stays crouched through the whole motion. The stickiness actually makes doing a hold move like "Spinning Bird Kick" easier than I'm used to, but that's no good if we can't do a simple "Hadouken" if our lives depended on it.3D PLATFORMERS: Once we start playing a game that doesn't require the D-p...
To be truthful I don’t expect much from Chinese companies because they usually make cheap products and a cheap product is what I was expecting started off bad because it wouldn’t connect via Bluetooth so had to connect using the dock and Bluetooth works after that played a few games while on the tv but even the OEM cons suck at that so don’t fault them for that but after playing it with just the switch I was honestly surprised no lag extremely comfortable , buttons well placed played Skyrim gta even more button intense games like smash and MK completely obliterated everyone online in MK never done that with the OEM joy cons because my hands would hurt and I have medium hands , everything makes this controller worth it now idk if this is a final product or something they want to see how it sells but only things I don’t like is the vibration they use cheap motors and it makes that rattling noise and the plastic they use is eh I prefer smooth like oem joy cons but I’d definitely recommend this controller to anyone unique design and if they ever put out a upgraded one in the future I’ll definitely buy also does not connect to iOS connects to android os and yes you can remote play your Xbox or playstions so for 30$ you can’t complainEdit: returned because the vibration started to hurt my hand you can turn it off but I’m deaf and like the vibration it also vibrates for every action you take in the game will buy again but I’ll probably buy the actual switch controllers just because they have HD vibration

Better then 8 bitdo
I found out from the Manufacturer that this Retro controlleris made for Nintendo Switch and Xbox.It has a significant design for Retro controllers that you justdon't find in the Market nowadays! The PB Tails Choc controllerreminds me of the N64 controller, in it's design and color scheme.I like how it fits in my pocket, and it is about the same size as a Joy-Con!
Great controller to collect but not to use.
Excelente calidad, muy buen diseño, es un poco pequeño pero fácil de usar. Funciona perfectamente en PC y Nintendo Switch
Honestly i buy this because of my strong curiosity, the unique design, and i thought it just looked like sth that looked cool but probably wouldnt play super well, but as a result i was shocked when using it that i actually ended up liking this controller in a lot of ways that i dont like other controllers.The first thing i want to address with it is the joystick clicks super good, i dont know how to describe it, its amazing to hear the clicks sound. The button on this have a much more satisfying kind of click although they are way smaller and way more close together which could be consider good thing depending on who you are. I have big thumbs and i had no problem hitting the right button so the size of them while it is smaller they are not like so close together that you are accidentally hitting two at once if you dont want to. And if there are any games where you have to hit two buttons at once it would probably easier with this. And the D-pad also pretty clicky and resistant i would say this is a lot better than the buttons that your are going to using on a joycon.Second thing is about the hapticks, this shockingly has a very strong hapticks where is was too loud like they are really strong you are getting way more haptic out of it than you would ever expected. But its there, its real. And seems the manual shows the vibration could be adjusted, but i like the strong feeling on this.And another thing i wanna mention here is about the shoulder buttons on this. They are kind of quirkiest my favorite part of the whole thing. The layout of the shoulder buttons is weird. They are not one behind the other, they are one in form the other. And this may just because its my hands and my hands work differently on a controller like this. The design right the way you naturally hold it, and your hands kind of naturally the pointer fingers touch the L2 and R2 buttons or so to do an L2 click you push with just the little pad of your finger but you can kind of just push your whole finger into hit L2 L1 or R2 R1so its you dont have to move your finger to hit both buttons at once or you could do one and then the other that could took some getting used to but once i get used to it loved it i preferred it, it give me more control. The sides while they look angular are actually very comfortable because the angles kind of hit relatively naturally on parts of your hand that are already bending anyway so it feels not too bad.So the design looks cool and is extremely functional i dont even know if its intentionally that way but it works. I think its a good choice for a extra controller.
Finally an small controller with rumble feature ..it fits in my pocket ...feels funny but does the job.... I like it
I freaking love this little controller. I鈥檓 planning to take it with my gaming laptop on the go. Wish it came with a case, but it looks and plays well and the buttons feel nice and clicky.
My product wasn't working right they sent me another one it works amazing maybe buy another one soon thank you
