  • Durable Build
  • Multiple Connection Modes

The Gen-Game S3 controller is a beautiful sleek looking gadget for Gamers, it has a phone bracket which you hook onto the gamepad and to your phone, thereby giving you a handled game experience.
Despite the low price of this wireless controller, it doesn't have that cheap stuff feeling, it feels and looks very much like every other console controller. It is not heavy, I can say it is light weight but this shouldn't give you the impression that it would shatter if it falls.

Gen Game S3 Review

There are different connection modes on this Bluetooth gamepad for different devices, you can connect it to your Android phone, iPhone or PC via Bluetooth or the wireless USB Receiver.

There's a special USB Receiver that allows you use this gamepad on PC, though you can easily connect the controller to your PC via Bluetooth if it's supported. Lot's of laptops these days do come with Bluetooth support so you may not need the USB Receiver to connect the gamepad to a PC or probably have no problems using it on your PC, as far as it has Bluetooth support.
